Can we have less hype in future

Recommended Posts

According to all the Scottish news bulletins and interviews with the players, the wheels were due to come off the chariot.

We ere told that the record would be a problem and the English players would get a bout of nerves, and the Scottish team was on a superb high.

Could they not have been more wrong?

and what ?

The Calcutta cup stays in the south

The unbeaten record goes on

Quote

 "Six Nations 2017: Winning run could 'paralyse' England - Scotland's Nathan Hines " - from BBC sport

England 61  Scotland  21

Mind you the men did better than the women

England  64 Scotland Women 0

I know. We get the same every 4 years when the English media think their football team will win the world cup. It's awful.

It's worse than that. It's every two years. They bang on about winning the Euros as well.

You may have also noticed that qualifiers for the Women's World Cup have started so expect even more hype. But to be fair, some level of hype is justified as the England Women's team is pretty good just now.  Their first match against Russia was live on BBC2 last night and it really was a very entertaining game to watch.  Robbo could do worse than sit his squad down to watch a video of the game.  The score was 6-0 but it could easily have been double figures.  They had 32 attempts on goal.  The English women played with a real purpose and showed a great awareness of their team mates.  There was a real connection between players in playing balls into the spaces.  There was also great awareness of when shooting opportunities and a decisiveness in getting shots away.  In short, going forward and decision making in the box was everything that it isn't with us at the moment.  It really was refreshing to watch.  If they continue to play like that, expect a lot more hype!

I rather suspect that any hype, however justified, has been superseded for now by events off the pitch.
