3 July – Brilliant on Paper



But shit on grass. So goes the quote from ‘An Evening With Gary Lineker’ a play by Arthur Smith and Chris England. A play all about the parallels of a relationship between the two male protagonists, a two-timing girlfriend and England’s progress in the 1990 World Cup.

It’s a cracking line, describing how England’s team, personified by the ‘Queen Mother’ of football, one Gary Lineker, always manage to look good on the team sheet, but fare atrociously when moving to the pitch.

This line describes perfectly my run this morning. Good in my head when being planned, but absolutely shit on the road. Nothing more to say. Not even good enough to be called crap.

Let’s hope this isn’t a forecast of today’s match against Colombia.
