QUESTION: What’s worse. Being knocked out of the World Cup after the second group stage game or going out in the semi-finals to a 7-1 drubbing?

The talk after Brazil’s humiliation by the Germans on Tuesday night was of a team that may never recover psychologically from the defeat.

Perhaps that’s where we have been going wrong. From what I have seen of our players since they flew back and went on holiday it is a shrug of the shoulders and “where’s my new contract for mega money?”

Or I am being cynical here? Maybe.
