The Express Confirms My Worst Fears
So, it really is
According to the front page of the Express, there is an ITV jinx on the England team. It's been eight years since England last won a game shown exclusively live on ITV.
That was the 4-1 drubbing of Holland back in Euro 96.
Hmmm. Could this have anything to do with ITV's commentators' propensity for 'counting chickens before they're hatched', as previously identified here?
Whoever's commentating tonight, remember: caution please.
