    Same old England

    I read a message board posting on these boards a while ago. I think it said something about the fact that there should be a word to describe the feeling you get after watching an England game. Something that includes the pre-match hope and excitement (although that portion of the emotions is certainly on the decline) followed by the sheer boredom of watching England play followed finally by the utter disappointment of having wasted 2 hours of your life on dull football.

    I think we should name this word after Steve McClaren. The conversation could go like this:

    Person A: How are you feeling?
    Person B: Ah, well, I'm a bit McClaren
    Person A: Ah! I see. You were full of hope and excitement which was then followed by about 2 hours of frustration and boredom which led to an inevitable disappointment!
