10 Uses for an unwanted England Flag

Use the large ones as a tablecloth!

After England’s departure from the World cup, there are now millions of St.Georges flags out there which will no doubt be either trashed, torn to pieces, jumped up and down on by angry fans or just tucked away neatly for the Euro 2008 qualifiers which begin later this year.

The BBC have collated idea’s from its readers on exactly what fans could do with all those unwanted flags. I read it this morning and found it quite hilarious anyway, it certainly gave me a smile first thing in the morning!

England Crash Out On Penalties Again

We’ve been here before haven’t we?

The whole nation right now is feeling down in the gutter after witnessing one of the most nail biting performances that this world cup could have produced. Portugal were the opposition, managed by Luiz Scolari an old nemesis to the England squad.

To sum things up, England outplayed them to some extent but couldn’t get the ball in the net. Tactics were poor throughout the tournament thanks to our manager Sven-Goran Eriksson. Having one player, the awesome young Wayne Rooney upfront was a crucial mistake. If you’re to have a player up front going solo, feed him with a supply of good passes for crying out loud.

To add to the misery someone stole the two St.Georges flags on my fathers new car so he’s angry…very angry, infact you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry.
