Andy Murray and Wimbledon  larrylark  30 Jun 12 3:01AM Thread Closed

Its here again. The annual can a Brit win Wimbledon debate. With out vast resources and fantastic practice areas, if you can find one and then scrape the dog poo off the base line, you would think that we would be able to conquer the world. Why don't we? Cus most tennis clubs I know round here are bastions of that certain sort of English Middle class snobbery which does not feel comfortable among down town kids. Tennis is seen as something difficult to take up and there don't seem to be any coaches anywhere. So if Murray wins Wimbledon , al our girls are already out, it will be a miracle of massive proportions eclipsing the momentous day when Virginia Wade won in the 70's. Our last male winner? The immortal Fred Perry in the 30's

I hope murray wins the final.. it will take a miraculous performance- he is going to need fate and luck on his side.. but the poor guy is under so much pressure- it would be a fantastic achievement for him personally..and inspirational i reckon for young british kids.

I really hope he doesn't win, not fir any sporting reason, but the hypocritical politicians in government right now will bask in the reflected sense of self-wrth and glory the win will bring and feed of the feel good of it all.

Anything that makes the tories look good, even second hand, is a bad thing.

Yes my friend we will all be stood in out rags outside the golden gated Empire of Toryism while they occasionally throw us a bone and maybe even a worn out tennis ball fpr which we will express extreme gratitude in between doffing our caps and singing God Save King Dave.

He'll definitely win blubber of the year award. He cried, Kate cried, Sir Cliff unashamedly, for after all he has no shame and no taste in clothes after wearing that ghastly jacket, cried, his mum her new boyfriend his dad and his also his dads new partner, my wife, sons, sons girlfriends our kat and budgerigar pet python hamster field mouse moth beetle head lice all unashamedly weeping while me Ivan Lendl and the little old lady who thought she was at Bingo sat stony faces.

Yes, how the English detest a blubber - it rankles their stiffer upper lips.
But when you consider the obscene amounts of money involved & that Murray's a Scot, who as a nation pride themselves on being thrifty, it wasn't a surprise that he blubbed like a baby with nappy rash.
If only we could divert ninety percent of ALL sporting monies into more worthy causes then perhaps as a species we would sleep easier at night knowing that there's more to life than ball games.

Life is full of if onlys unknown. I would prefer the Wimbledon tournament to be played on Wanstead Common and the Wimbledon site to be turned into a rest home for retired racketeers
