A Skegness landlord out in Brazil watching the World Cup contacted the Standard
to share his thought and feelings following England’s early exit from the competition.
Paul Farrell landlord of Churchills Wine and Sports bar Skegness said: “well what can I say? I think the English game needs changing from the FA right down to the clubs.
There is something very fundamentally wrong with our English game, whether its too many foreign imports playing in our premiership I don’t know.”
“I think our players are over coached, which stifles a lot of flair, we are just not good enough on the world stage, we cannot attack, and unfortunately our game plan went wrong,” he said.
“Taking all that away, the atmosphere at the Uruguay game was fantastic, with great banter between fans. After the game the Uruguayan’s were very surprised that St George was still happy to pose for photos with them.”
Paul has cut his trip short because of the Uruguay result, as after the final game England will play no further part in World Cup 2014.
Paul said: “The one thing I will take away from Brazil is how friendly the Brazilian’s have been, plus all the fans from all over the world.”
“It was also great to visit the amazon and experience the culture”, he added.
