Hubris etc



Well, what did we expect? Story of my life. I've spent years expecting the CBCE+W to teach the Catholic faith so why shouldn't I expect England to win the World Cup? I now get a chance to watch some decent football teams for the next two weeks.

Still, England are amateurs as far as hubris goes...

Indeed. We never learn. Human nature.

Still, got to be in it to lose it, as they say.

Having lived here for 12 years I have a foot in boh camps :-(
