The Day After THAT Match

Well. I’m not sure if I know my limits, or if I like to keep my blogging organised. But for some reason, I thought I should write something about last nights England game. On the weekend before the England match took place.

With me so far?

So obviously, at the time of writing I have no clue how the England match is going to end…. So I could write something about Football coming home… or I could write something about managing an upset 5 year old who has got caught up in the emotion of it all. (Possibly my fault)

|Instead of being brave, I bottled it, (Insert a England football gag here if needed), and have gone down a somewhat generic route.

As such can I present a How to guide on “how to react, the morning after the England Game.”

Conversations With A Small Person: The World Cup

While watching a World Cup game, the small one went quiet and asked “Are there any girl teams playing?”

I explained there wasn’t in this world cup, but there were “girl football teams” that we could try and watch sometime.

She fell silent again.

I want to be a footballer when I grow up, or a doctor, I just don’t know any more!

What My Fridge Says

Who should be the next England Manager? (From The World of cbeebies)

Over the last seven days it feels almost everyone is resigning their jobs. It started with a Prime Minister, and now the England Manager job is vacant.

This led me to wonder (possibly in a fit of post EU Referendum result depression) Who, in the world of cbeebies, should be the next England Manager?

The Voice from Sarah and Duck

Sarah and Duck TitlesLets look at “The Voice” from Sarah and Duck. Is he is a parent figure? Is he the voice of a shared consciousness between the characters? Either way, he seems to be a respected and possibly knowledgeable figure in their lives.

Sadly due to his only feature being a floating voice, he wouldn’t be liked by any media outlet (except possibly radio). Therefore he is out of the running for England Manager.

Iggle Piggle

He is the key figure in a crowd of various strange, amusing, and talented individuals. He is the one that appears to hold them all together, to the point that he is the last one asleep at night.

Sadly his lack of ability to talk could be unfortunate, but some may see that as an advantage.

Mr Tumble

TumblejpegI’m sure people would be ok with a clown in charge of the England team.

But some may argue he should be the next Prime Minister.

Charlie and Lola

How about some sort of joint position? Charlie would be the sensible one that talks to the press… the players… other managers… everyone.

Lola would be the one that comes up with the tactics.

Sid and Rebecca from Lets Play!

letsplay_slidemain (1)This could be a winning formula!

Every week, Sid or Rebecca takes on a new job, and seem to do that job really well. These jobs seem to range from Nursing to being a Rock Star. Whatever it is they do, they seem to do it well. Therefore I would argue for another joint position, with both Sid and Rebecca in charge.

They pretend to do everything else well, I’m sure they can both pretend to be the England Manager.

Any other ideas to add?
