1. Fans from both sides gather in a small Lincolnshire living room to watch England vrs France at Euro 2004 on June 13th.

    Zinedine Zidane scored a majestic free-kick and a penalty in injury time to secure holders France a stunning victory over England.

    Frank Lampard had given England a first-half lead when he rose to head home David Beckham's free-kick.

    The brilliant Wayne Rooney won England a second-half penalty, but Beckham saw his spot-kick saved by Fabien Barthez.

    Zidane equalised with a free-kick and then converted from the spot after David James fouled Thierry Henry.

    That late double blow left England's players inconsolable at the final whistle, whilst the French stayed on the pitch to celebrate their opening game win.

  2. A homage to New Order and John Barnes this video documents the Group Stage match between England and Trinidad & Tobago, filmed at Frankfurt-am-Main's fanzone, Germany, 15th June 2006.

    Peter Crouch and Steven Gerrard spared England's blushes with late goals to book their place in the last 16 of the World Cup.

    Spotted by Beckham standing in the penalty area eight yards out, with no-one anywhere near him, Crouch hoplessly caught the volley on his right shin and sent it several yards wide of Hislop's goal.

    His miss could have proved even more costly. Carlos Edwards beat Robinson to a cross and as John bundled the ball towards goal, John Terry typically managed to get back in time to clear the ball off the line.

    Lange Crouch, as the German's called him blatantly cheated to score his goal by pulling the dreads of the defender.

  3. This video documents the quarter final tie between England and Portugal.

    England went out of the World Cup 3-1 on penalties after the match ended 0-0.

    England lost skipper David Beckham to injury just after half-time and Wayne Rooney was sent off after 62 minutes for a stamp on Ricardo Carvalho.

    They battled on bravely for the rest of normal time and extra-time with 10 men to take the game to a shoot-out.

    But Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher missed to end their hopes and Sven-Goran Eriksson's reign.

    The song featured is by comedian Boothby Graffoe, who claims to be the only comedian in the world named after a Lincolnshire village.

  4. ''Predictions?''

    ''Global doom!'' - Tom Ranson, June 20th 2006.

    How right he was!

    The 2007–2012 global financial crisis is considered by many economists to be the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s. It resulted in the collapse of large financial institutions, the bailout of banks by national governments, and downturns in stock markets around the world. In many areas, the housing market also suffered, resulting in evictions, foreclosures and prolonged unemployment. The crisis played a significant role in the failure of key businesses, declines in consumer wealth estimated in trillions of US dollars, and a downturn in economic activity leading to the 2008–2012 global recession and contributing to the European sovereign-debt crisis.

    That prophetic comment from Tom Ranson came on Tuesday 20th June in Soho, London.

    England went in front when Joe Cole hit a sensational lob from 35 yards, only for Marcus Allback to equalise when he headed home from a right-wing corner.

    Steven Gerrard headed in Joe Cole's 85th-minute cross, but Henrik Larsson levelled for Sweden in injury time.

    The result was marred by a knee injury to striker Michael Owen, who was stretchered off in the first minute.
