The white carpet laid like inertia
A scene of still surrender
We watched in wonder to see it fall:
The reputation of our national team
The red cross of England requiring first aid
Please could the BBC stop wasting our licence money on televising England friendlies. Tradition and hope make me switch on, but by half-time, I’m too weakened by apathy to switch off again. Save me from myself, it was horrible.
