ENGLAND..Where is all our enthusiasm for the world cup??


Dec 22, 2012
I came over for the England v Nigeria game,expecting the country to be buzzing about the world cup,but nothing!!
Wembley crowd was poor again,atmosphere i mean,great attendance...but the feeling was dead.
i wanted to get ,mabe a official world cup t-shirt ..maybe with England onit or something like that,but the shop did not sell anything like it.
I remember many a world cup,even Euro 88,when i left the UK to come over to Germany for the finals,i bought different t-shirts,even got the wife(German) an England Euro 88 sweat shirt,which she wore..
But this year nothing,no song..coins..nothing the apathy seems so sad.
Yes i know Germany are world champions(sadly for me),they are serial winners unlike our lot,but i came back to Germany more "cheesed off"than before.
EVERY supermarket is selling things about Germany ,the place is buzzing(sadly),everywhere you go GERMANY come on,then i come home and....
Even the German commentators,who was at the Nigeria game said how poor the atmosphere is around Wembley and England.....surely we should be more upbeat about the world cup....even if its only 3 games:omg:
