Greenygrey Saves England Win and Nervy Finish

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams again. Phew, I’m glad there’s a break in the Euro 2012 action for a couple of days, because I feel as tired as the players look! You may be wondering how the greenygrey saved England last night after Joe Hart was forced to wear red in line with the second kit; and not the greenygreyesque first choice goalie’s kit, which we’re sure he prefers.

Greenygrey Metaphysical Karma Saves England

No, while most greenygrey interest during Euro 2012 has been in the goalie kits, last night it was the greenygrey dualism Yin and Yang karma style ‘what goes around comes around’ that helped England win.

That is because Frank Lampard had a perfectly good goal not given against Germany in the last World Cup, which would have given England a chance, and could have changed the game, before German eventually won easily.

So, it could be said that last night’s Ukraine goal that wasn’t given was a kind of greenygrey karma, and that’s how the Greenygrey helped England to a crucial win.

P.S. Not forgetting the greenygrey Roy Hodgson statue as well of course.

Croatia Keeper’s Kit Calamity Costs: Fails to Fade to Grey

Jesus scores, as Croatia fail to save.

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams once again; I’m sure you know by now that I’m the sports correspondent at Greenygrey News. There were no greenygrey shocks at Euro 2012 last night, like with Greece earlier in the week, but this could have been because the Croatian goalie’s kit seemed to have got the greenygrey wrong, and Jesus (Navas) pounced to score.

Spain Spot Croatian Goalie’s White to Score

Croatia’s goalie, Pletikosa, thought he’d got his camouflage right for 87 minutes, keeping a clean-sheet against the strong Spanish favourites. Another shock on the scale of Greece’s victory over Russia earlier in the week seemed on the cards.

But then Spain spotted Pletikosa; possibly because he’d matched green with white instead of green with grey; lobbed the ball over him, and Jesus (Navas) put the chance away. Here’s an image of the moment from the BBC website:

Croatian Goalie has Previously Worn Grey

It seems to be a moment of madness by the Croatian goalie kit designers rather than Pletikosa being greyphobic, as he has previously been seen in grey:

If either the lighter or darker half of grey were replaced by green in the above kit, it would make a great greenygrey kit.

BBC Statistics get Greenygrey Right

The Croatian goalie kit designers seemed to have got the greenygrey wrong, and could learn a thing or two from the BBC‘s defensive statistics chart:
