I was sitting quietly in a bar in Vaud watching the Germany v. England match yesterday and was amazed by Francophone peole going bonkers with delight when Germany scored their first two goals.

Does anybody know what that was about?
If you are English and want to be loved, France is the wrongest place, Romandie comes second. Nothing personal, it's the same in Eurovision, fashion week etc...

nah. not entirely true and certainly a strange occurance in my opinion. in these parts the english are certainly more tolerated than the french- and the germans are not winning any popularity contests around here.

Re: 2010 World Cup actual match discussion here (all matches)

Fabio Capello was wheeling his shopping trolley across the supermarket car park when he noticed an old lady struggling with her bags of shopping.
He stopped and asked, “Can you manage dear?”
To which the old lady replied, “No way. You got yourself into this mess, don’t ask me to sort it out!”

Re: 2010 World Cup actual match discussion here (all matches)

Shouldn't the national team coach of a mature and highly regarded (at least was) football nation be from that country? Just a quick scan of all the other major nations seems to confirm that this is the case........

Its fine for minnows such as Australia et al to import foreign managerial expertise, but I'm not convinced this is the right course for England. Just a thought.

I hear that David Blaine is reportedly furious after England crashed out of the World Cup – his record of doing absolutely fark all in a box for 42 days was broken by Wayne Rooney.

Re: 2010 World Cup actual match discussion here (all matches)

Jeebus, 2 goals so quickly after such a gruelling first half of keeping them at bay. I forsee some BIG Chilean tackles as real frustration sets in.

Ordem e Progresso indeed! (Particularly compared to Chile... stop farting around guys... or, actually, don't I'm happy with this result so far )

Poor Chile... they just can't break through the awesome Brazilian defence. If England played with half the heart of these guys we would still be in the competition.

Re: 2010 World Cup actual match discussion here (all matches)

Ahhh the Dutch are in for a difficult time!

Brazil was brilliant as usual. I was bored during the first 15 minutes but things did pick up, mainly due to Chile's spirit and never-say-die attitude right till the end.
