There is no "a" in teem (as in teeming blame)

Soccerlens links to this article, which goes for Michael Owen's statement that the English team is better than the Croatia team.

Here's what he said:

The Newcastle star, 27, insisted: “I don’t think any of the Croatian team would get into our team.

“Doesn’t that tell you it’s not about ability or technique but in the mind.

"We have very demanding fans and a media who expect a great deal from the England team — and rightly so.

“How we, as players, cope with that is where the problem lies.

“I watched the Croatia game and so often it broke down purely because of pressure.

“It came down to the pressure of making a mistake when it mattered.

“If we’d won the games we should have, we wouldn’t have ended up putting that kind of pressure on ourselves. It was our own fault.”

So Owen wasn't dissing the Croatian team.

He was just saying that the English team is mindless.
