Only because the ball randomly bounced off his big flapping hands as he was trying to flag down a bus so he could go and pick up his pension. Anyway, even if they did hold up the ball, Enlgand were still incapable of launching any kind of cohesive assaults on the goal with an extra man. They were just outclassed. I'm happy they lost to Brazil and not a team like Argentina. -----Original Message----- From: Andy Burrows [mailto:Andy.Burrows@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: 21 June 2002 11:07 To: 'pr0k@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' Subject: [pr0k] Re: Also... > England. > 11 men against 10 and they still couldn't do anything. > Although the guy shouldn't have been sent off in the first place. > And Seaman's just an ageing hippy.

The best team in the world for the past few decades? ;) ) played really well, holding the ball up and not letting England get it - They have experience in that, something the England team didn't have. And as for having a go at Seaman - We never would have got through if it hadn't been for him! Seaman played the best I've seen him play for years!
