I'm not going to South Africa. So instead I'm gonna try and watch a bit if not all of every game at work, or at home or in a bar or wherever. On the telly. With a beer. And I'm gonna predict who I think is gonna win. And talk about football stuff. So there.

British Weather Lets Us Down - Again

England only has a couple of warm-up games before the World Cup. Tonight's Wembley match-up against Mexico isn't exactly going to replicate South African conditions. It's winter down there, and no doubt, the FA were hoping that the weather in London today would be as rotten and disappointing as it normally is this time of year (or anytime of year for that matter).

Sadly, it resembles Mexico out there. And no doubt there'll be a shot of a pitchside thermometer on tonight's TV coverage just to show everyone how far away we are from emulating a southern hemisphere winter.

Thanks Mr. Weatherman. Just when we wouldn't have minded a bit of bad news on the weather front, you serve up this scorcher.
