Feeling like I've been kicked in the guts...

was reminded to day that one of my school crushes - who admittedly I haven't seen a lot of since we graduated high school in '95 even though we live in the same town - got married to another of my schoolfriends back in May.

I'm not bitter.... just remembering the day at Nant-y-Rhiw camp (which for all non-Welsh-speakers either means Frosty or Icy Brook... cannot be arsed looking it up right now but I will do later ;)) when Lucie convinced me to tell him how I felt, and he turned me down flat.

But hey - if I'd gone out with Daniel back then, I might not have got together with Rob when I did... so, yeah, happy about that... *weak smile*

Grrrrr mothers

you'd think they'd work out that having a go at you constantly only serves to drive you further away from me - when I get to have Rob's kids, I must remember to thank their maternal grandmother for teaching me how not to be a mother... *sighs* I'm kind of immune to it all now - except for it depressing the hell out of me - I just wanna get the hell up to somewhere preferably with a PR postcode, get my ass back in uni, and hopefully never have to deal with either of them again. I love you, Rob - you're the only person keeping me sane through all this...

Italy 4-0 Wales

Italy delivered a damaging blow to Wales' hopes of qualifying for Euro 2004 with an emphatic victory in Milan.

Filippo Inzaghi struck a hat-trick in 11 minutes in the second half to end Welsh resistance as Mark Hughes' side were ultimately outclassed after a spirited first-half performance.

Wales squandered early chances to spring a shock - but once the deadlock was broken after 58 minutes Wales were torn apart and Italy marched to the top of the group.

And Alessandro del Piero's late penalty only added to the disappointment on a night of misery for Wales.

Hughes' men still have a chance of automatic qualification, but they are now almost certainly aiming to qualify for next summer's showpiece via the play-offs.

And they must regroup against Finland in Cardiff on Wednesday with a seriously depleted side, with Robbie Savage, Craig Bellamy and Mark Delaney all suspended after being booked in the San Siro.

Wales, as expected, were without regular central defensive pair Andy Melville and Danny Gabbidon - but produced trademark resilience in a fierce first 45 minutes.

Indeed Wales had the first opportunity after six minutes, when Ryan Giggs almost took advantage of John Hartson's flick.

And Giggs gave the Italians another scare on the half-hour when he rounded Gianluigi Buffon, but the angle was too tight and he was forced to find Hartson, who shot over.

It was the signal for an incessant spell of Italian pressure which required a combination of brave defending and huge good fortune for Wales to survive until the interval.

Jason Koumas was caught in possession and it needed a magnificent saving tackle from Delaney to save Wales.

Christian Vieiri then set up Inzaghi, who blazed a great chance over the top.

Wales had their biggest escape four minutes before half-time, when goalkeeper Paul Jones turned Del Piero's shot on to the bar before Simone Perrotta struck the rebound against an upright.

The woodwork came to Wales' rescue 10 minutes after the break when Cristiano Zanetti hit the post from 12 yards.

And as Italy hammered on the door, defender Robert Page was forced to acrobatically clear Vieiri's flick off the line.

It was only a matter of time before Italy made the breakthrough, and it finally arrived after 58 minutes.

Del Piero's header was turned on to the bar by Vieri, but this time the Welsh luck was out and Inzaghi was left with a simple tap-in.

And the game was effectively over four minutes later when Inzaghi stole in at the near post to turn substitute Oddo's cross past Jones.

Italy were rampant and Del Piero added a fourth from the penalty spot with 16 minutes left after Simon Davies upended Gianluca Zambrotta.

Macedonia 1-2 England (Euro2004 Qualifier)

Wayne Rooney re-wrote the history books to become England's youngest scorer as they came from behind to win the crucial Euro 2004 qualifier in Macedonia.

England were in desperate need of inspiration after former Barnsley striker Georgi Hristov punished a woeful first-half display to give Macedonia a deserved lead.

But Everton's Rooney equalised early in the second half - and captain David Beckham kept alive England's hopes of automatic qualification for next summer's finals with the winner from the penalty spot.

It was a night of glory for Rooney, who opened his England account at the tender age of 17 years and 317 days to beat Michael Owen's record.

England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson also deserves credit for a bold attacking formation in the second half - but once again he will be concerned by a dreadful defensive display.

Eriksson responded to England's shambolic opening 45 minutes by sending on Emile Heskey for Frank Lampard, and his tactical switch paid off handsomely.

England's seventh straight win, which equalled their post-war record, was marred by incidents off the pitch as well as racist chanting from the crowd in Skopje.

Beckham was, as expected, declared fit after a minor groin strain and Rooney partnered Owen in attack.

Macedonia were in uncompromising mood and emphasised the fact with a series of early tackles which saw Ilco Naumoski booked for foul on Nicky Butt in the opening seconds.

And England had a narrow escape after 12 minutes when Lampard conceded possession and Macedonia captain Artim Sakiri was harshly adjudged offside when he was clean through on goal.

But England failed to heed the warning signs and Macedonia deservedly took the lead in the 26th minute.

It was a catalogue of defensive disaster for England, with Gary Neville starting the rot by playing Macedonia onside.

And when Vlatko Grozdanovski's cross was hopelessly misjudged by Sol Campbell, Hristov was on hand to score after Goran Pandev's shot was blocked.

England were unable to establish any sort of foothold, with attacking opportunities virtually non-existent.

It had been a desperate opening 45 minutes - and Eriksson made a vital change at the interval.

Heskey replaced Lampard as Eriksson went for a three-pronged strike force.

And it was rewarded almost instantly when Heskey nodded down Beckham's pass for Rooney to beat Milosevski from 20 yards.

And the game was turned around completely on the hour when England went ahead.

John Terry was floored by Macedonia substitute Braga and Beckham scored expertly from the spot.

Braga almost made amends with 20 minutes left when he cut inside the struggling Ashley Cole, but saw his shot deflected on to the top of the net by Campbell.

Southampton 1-0 Man U *grr*

United slumped to their league defeat since Boxing Day last year when they were beaten 1-0 by Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium this afternoon (Saturday).

Former Blackburn Rovers striker James Beattie grabbed the winner two minutes from the end of normal time after a lack-lustre performance from United.

The defeat brought to an end United’s 100 per cent start to the season and also saw them suffer their first league defeat in 25 starts.

It was disappointing end to a long day for many United fans who had been up at the crack of dawn to set off for the south coast.

Discussions about the Sunday newspapers’ pre-occupation with David Beckham gave the United fans plenty to talk about on the long journey to Southampton. Whether it was his third minute goal against Real Betis or the upcoming publication of his latest book the former darling of the Old Trafford faithful continues to be huge source of interest despite his summer departure.

The UEFA Champions League draw, and in particular the ties against Scottish champions Rangers, was also a talking point along with the most recent games against Newcastle United and Wolves.

At first glance, it appeared that United were unchanged from the side which squeezed a point out of Wednesday’s clash with Wolves at Old Trafford. But, on further scrutiny a couple of changes emerged from the line-up. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Cristiano Ronaldo were missing from the Wolves game whilst Mikael Silvestre and Ryan Giggs were reinstated. Solskjaer was missing with what was believed to be a minor knee problem, whilst Ronaldo was named amongst the substitutes.

It was a bright, warm day at the St Mary’s Stadium as the game got underway with United defending the goal behind which their supporters were congregeted. And it wasn’t long before Tim Howard’s goal was under threat from Paul Telfer, the former Coventry City star, who hit a grass-cutter that missed Tim Howard’s goal by a couple of feet.

United, wearing a new change kit of black shirts and white shorts for the first time, found the Saints to be a bit of a handful in the opening minutes. The home side had several interesting moments, but thankfully the Reds’ defence held firm.

Gary neville overlapped down the right in the 15th minute before crossing into the middle. The ball found Giggs but he couldn’t get enough on the shot and United’s first real opening of the game had passed.

Gavin McCann’s name was recorded in the referee Mark Halsey’s notebook following a clumsy challenge on Eric Djemba-Djemba.

United were strangely out of touch with little of what they attempted coming off and numerous passes going astray. Even skipper Roy Keane was guilty of sloppy passing and it isn’t often events of that nature can be reported.

McCann was give a fine opportunity to put his side into the lead when he sent away by James Beattie, but his shot disappeared high into the crowd behind Howard’s goal.

A rare United opening was constructed soon after when Giggs gave Forlan aa ball to chase. The Uruguayan made contact with the pass and it appeared that a goal was on the cards until his shot went directly into the arms of Paul Jones in the Southampton goal.

The second half opened with no apparent change to the pattern established before the break. United continued to be well below par whilst the Saints remained the most likely side to open the scoring.

Silvestre beat the Southampton defence to Diego Forlan’s left-wing corner on the hour but he failed narrowly to get his head to the ball.

United lost the services of Kleberson in the 66th minute after he appeared to fall heavily on his right shoulder. He looked to be in some distress and so was immediately withdrawn from the action. Portuguese youngster Ronaldo was quickly stripped and thrust in the fray.

Kevin Phillips, until recently one of Sunderland’s biggest names, looked on course to put his new side into the lead after he wriggled his way past Silvestre, but United keeper Howard pulled off a brilliant diving save to stop the striker’s shot.

A few moments later and United were within inches of taking the lead. Ronaldo was fouled by Graeme Le Saux and from the ensuing free-kick Giggs curled in a shot which thumped against Jones’ crossbar.

Howard proved his worth again when Beattie got above the United defence to head goalward. The ball looked to be looping over Howard but he threw himself backwards to tip the ball over the bar. Another brilliant save from the American international.

Southampton had keeper Jones to thank in the 85th minute after he’d saved magnificently from Forlan’s blistering drive. The ball looked certain to find the net, but Jones had other ideas.

Two minutes from time and United’s defence was finally breached. Le Saux took a corner from the right, which found Beattie who headed firmly into the United net. The Saints had been threatening to to score, but it seemed United were going to hang on for a hard-earned, but largely undeserved point.

Sir Alex Ferguson immediately replaced defender Phil Neville with forward Quinton Fortune but it was too late for United to retrieve the game.
