Daily Quote: misplaced sense of entitlement

Published by under Daily Quote

《卫报》的 Richard Williams 是体育评论员,他的分析文章有时候格外地准确。在英国拳击手 Ricky Hatton 在拉斯维加斯败给美国人 Mayweather 之后,他说为什么英国媒体和大众在各种赛事前总是保着不切实际的幻想。

Somewhere near the heart of all this is a misplaced sense of entitlement, the juice that fuelled both England’s failure in the last football World Cup and the clamour of Hatton’s fans in Las Vegas at the weekend. We are England, the chant goes up, and we deserve to win. The failure of successive disappointments to cool such ardour must be as fascinating for sociologists as it is rewarding for the industry that feeds off it.


Sky’s the limit to English failure in this land of hype and glory
