Things I Have Noticed So Far…

June 14, 2010

The greatest football tournament, sorry the greatest sporting event alongside the Olympic Games, has begun in South Africa over the previous weekend, though you probably knew this and I thought I would share my thoughts on some of my observations.

Don’t worry, this will not contain a ‘easy-to-do’ have a go at Robert Green or an acknowledgement that it has been way too long for the tournament to finally be held in Africa.
