    Is it just me, or is anyone finding this tournament more enjoyable for England’s absence?

    No reports of pissed up idiots wrecking town squares, no endless fretying in the media about bead performances, no hype but most of all, no actual having to watch the kind of rubbish that England have typically srved up in their last few tournaments?

    Neil,

    There was a good column from John Doyle in the Globe and Mail (Canada) about exactly that. The English press have had to feast on the Scolari-Chelsea move and the Ronaldo-Madrid speculation, and we are spared reports about the WAGs, why the Gerrard-Lampard midfield still doesn’t work, and why the English keepers botched another easy save (though maybe Cech’s gaffe would have overshadowed this last bit).
