Random Drivel from your Average Tosser

Well, I never...!

Football. Funny old fuckin' game, ain't it? There was me at the begining of the tournament saying "it's going to be a toss up between Argentina, Brazil and Germany for the title". And with the frankly uninspiring performances by Brazil early on I became convinced that the quarter-final between Argentina and Germany was the real final. After all, they were the two teams who had been strong and played consistently well - whichever one got managed to beat the other would surely sweep aside the remaining also-rans.

Couldn't have got that more wrong, could I? It just goes to show that on the world football stage there is only one safe bet - and that's England going out in the quarter or semi-finals on penalties.

...an extra bet on them clinging onto a draw whilst reduced to 10 men after a petulant player was sent off and you're laughing...

Cheers m'dears!

But Binty - isn't it great that we have a European team final? I'm rooting for those fit Italians - all that passion and tears, nmarvellous - but that Zinedane is great to watch too!

Really, it would be nice to pick my own sort of esperanto dream team, including Ronaldo, Beckham, Zinedane, Viera, Jo Cole!

It's gotta be France now, hasn't it? I can't support those diving Italian bastids, I just can't.

Diving? What, like that nice Tel Henry bloke?

Two dives in two games, both of them match winners.........

Tasty!

Shebah, I'm more of the mind that I'd like to see a brand new winner... In fact, I'd love to see a final that included an African or Asian team, but I guess that's a way off yet...

FMC, my past has more Italian ties than French, but then again I saw the France Brazil game in a courtyard teeming with a couple of hundred French who kind of adopted me... it's a tough choice, so I shall just remain neutral. At least, as long as I am sober...

Ill Man, Tampon Teabag posted on the Karma of Henry's diving recently... what goes around, yadda, yadda...

SafeT, don't worry - it's nearly over!

Kari - you're so sweet! And you, m'dear!
