Then in September, the band added a late-night bar to operate out the back of the existing Tearoom, in the cavernous space already carved out while the venue sought the appropriate liquor license “About 4 months ago we started operating, selling tea and coffee out the front,” explains The Grates’ effervescent frontwoman, who even roped in her sister, Raven, as chief barista. Just like any team at club level, there is always a transition period between a squad of highly talented players, who have been together for years, suddenly reaching the end of their careers, and the new generation needing time to come through.Any realistic England fan should have known going into this World Cup that they would be lucky to get through the group that they had been given, so why are so many people upset that they didn’t get through and demanding changes?The simple fact of the matter is the three games they played, in my eyes at least, England were the better team, but got punished by silly little mistakes.The sort of mistakes that players with little to no major competition experience, or players who are at the tail end of their careers make. I’ve heard people say that Roy Hodgson needs to be replaced but in my opinion that would be a huge mistake. He is the man who is crafting this team and the youngsters.
Hodgson has been thanking fans on her twitter account for their well wishes since the news broke overnight, no word as yet if the wedding vows include the lyrics to ‘Carve Your Name’ (‘into my heart’).
