The bar was decked out in flags, tapas were on hand for everybody, extra barrels of beer purchased, England T-shirts printed, the Lemon Beer was super-cold, the bar was busy and we were ready for kick off!
The atmosphere was great, and we were all looking forward to a resounding triumph over Uruguay (weren't we??)
Yes we were, even Big Dave was getting into the spirit of things, even though he isn't a massive football fan, (just massive) but then it all started to go a bit wrong,
Louis Suarez scored, however no big deal, Rooney followed up with an equaliser. We were not convinced that England could get out of this, however, hope springs eternal.....
Everything was tense, surely we could do it, surely our young players could outrun the Uruguayans, surely our talent could make the difference? Then Suarez scored again........
Oh, oh, here we go again. Yep, England are out......... Anyway there's always Qatar in four years time! And we ate all the Tapas........And the sun is still shining here in Tenerife as you can see in the photo below of Tony Rhodes and Jodie Darnbrook of Club Olympus.
Ho hum, not to worry, we can all look forward to watching Leeds United when the season kicks off (who on earth would be a football fan?)
See you soon, from Tony, Ivan and Sedge Rhodes here at Club Olympus.
