Tomorrow's Daily Record Headline: Double Joy for Scotland!

"1. Murray Thrashes Roddick" and "2. England Crash Out".

Maybe the sub-headline could be "England's Dream Is Stamped Out". You heard it here first.

I am actually backing Germany now that England are out (this is not a joke), I have a very good German friend and so that's my closed allegiance.  I did have a brief chat with a girl in a call centre an hour after the penalties were over and she said "you don't happen to know the final score in the game today do you?".  "Yes", I replied, "Wigan won by two points".  Again this is not a joke.  She replied "Wonderful, we won!".
