The English soccer staff have managed to succeed in the quarter finals of the Fifa World Cup, will this lastly be the 12 months that soccer comes back residence for the first time since 1966? Despite not enjoying their greatest football, England are still within the event and should have an ideal chance of lifting the trophy.
Some would possibly say that I’m biased as I am from England myself and am an avid England supporter, nevertheless I actually really feel that 2006 may very well be the year for our… Continue reading
The viral itself is quite nice, almost as though Guus Hiddink is a child dreaming of the life he’ll lead, rather than remembering things in the past.
Quite nice, save for one large bit of confusion: What the hell’s it all about? At first it seemed like it may be an international hotel chain, then dental hygiene, and finally something involving air travel, waiting for Bill Shatner to pop up. But a quick Google search says Together For Great Goals is, or was, the slogan for Betherlands 2018.
Which sort of explains why they didn’t land the World Cup.

The Qatar bid video made the rounds on the internet like some celebrity sex video, but Russia’s bid video fell well below the radar, mostly because their bid wasn’t rooted in some far-off fantasy world.
Just watching it now, because, if you haven’t heard, they just got the World Cup, it’s a surprisingly good proposal and a nice video. And proof that to sell stuff, you don’t need Morgan Freeman.
Entire markets just crashed upon this revelation.Also worth noting we now have to sets of Olympics piggybacking World Cups, or vice-versa: Brazil/Rio and Sochi/Russia.
As confessions go, this one ranks in the all-time pantheon of greats…and those providing too much information.
Discussing the 1990 World Cup on BBC radio, Gary Lineker let the world in on a little secret as to the state of his back end during the Ireland game, and offers a little insight as to why any grown man would drag his ass across a World Cup pitch. It’s been done figuratively a number of times, but literally? Gary may be a trail blazer.
And “relaxed myself”, I think, is about the most candid admission I’ve ever heard on any media,… Continue reading
The much anticipated BBC documentary detailing the probe into FIFA’s handling of World Cup bids was finally aired, with some unsurprisingly surprising results: they’re quite dirty.
The man running the show is the rather infamous Andrew Jennings, who earned his fame by running afoul of FIFA, writing a book on their dabblings on the wrong side of integrity.
Though informative, unfortunately we can only assume nothing will change, as this is FIFA, and FIFA’s been doing whatever it wants for years.
Still, however, a good watch.

While FIFA’s busy blocking punches from all angles like a jelly-legged prizefighter with the 2018 & 2022 World Cup decisions on Thursday, they’ve done with the business of getting the 2011 Women’s World Cup draw done without so much as a peep that it was dirty – filthily dirty.
So there’s that going for them.
UEFA’s done a favor for those of us completely unfamiliar with the Women’s World Cup (aye, guilty) and whipped up a primer in a jiffy for next year’s big tournament in Germany.
The numbers in brackets are their current FIFA rankings, which we know are… Continue reading
