Polish football in tatters

So, no world cup campaign for Poland in South Africa next year. Miserable coup de grace from Slovenia. No-one has even mentioned it at work today, they're all too depressed.
Meanwhile, flicking over to UK TV after every Slovenian goal last night England couldn't seem to stop scoring ... 5-1 against Croatia.
I don't actually like soccer, but last night with the in-laws was more than mildly amusing, sadist that I am.

Yes well I guess it will save me from the emotional and depressing experience of watching Poland play badly and lose again. I'd rather watch a horror film (and I hate horror films. I end up jumping and hiding behind the sofa - so embarassing when I scream in the cinema).

They are too emotional and insecure about the game. If they score a goal they think they have won already. They never seem to gel as a team, too many individualists too big headed and paying too little attention to the needs of their team mates. Am I being too harsh?

Coach blamed.

"Poland have sacked coach Leo Beenhakker after a 3-0 defeat in Slovenia all-but ended their hopes of reaching the 2010 World Cup in South Africa ...."

He learny about the sacking because a journalist interviewing him on the pitch overheard the former secret police chief, now head of the Polish FA, saying he was going to be sacked!
Professionalism :)
