I was reading the Wiki on David Lloyd the other day (partly to remind myself of why he is called "Bumble") and it recounted his retirement as England coach with quotes from Tim Lamb (then chairman of the ECB), Alec Stewart, and others saying things like how nice it would be to deliver a World Cup win for him to round off his time with England - following which England infamously failed to even make it out of the group.

They're wrong though. England are going to win.
You can't make jokes like that when we actually have a semblance of a chance - it's got the reverse mockers the wrong way round, or something.
