I have come across a few blogs that talk about having the edge and how that is the road to success. They think they have found something that nobody else has. It's all nonsense of course as everyone knows that the only two edges in the world are shown below.
Gaining experience on the markets, learning to make the right decisions at the right time and controlling your emotions when things go wrong is the way to long term success. Each sports market reacts in different ways and these characteristics can only be found by playing them time and time again. The winners are the one's that understand the characteristics and the losers are normally the newbies although there are some people that no matter how long they play, can never get to grips with the market movements.
So what of Englands chances today. I am not so sure. Germany are always resilient and they have a good young side. They took apart Australia and on their day they can take on anybody. Rooney needs to be back to his best to unlock the German defence.
If England can do the business I will be doing my bit to ensure a Mexican victory. I have few people round to watch the game this evening so what better way to help the Mexicans than with an assortment of Tortillas to nosh washed down with plenty of bottlles of Sol.
