I know next to nothing about football

…but I know that you shouldn’t step on somebody else’s nuts.

Sorry. Err. I know next to nothing about football, but I listen to people who do know stuff about football. And I was told this.

  • Germany’s players are too young and mediocre, and Klinsmann is an unproven manager
  • Italy’s team is made up of a bunch of overrated prima donnas
  • Portugal never do well, so don’t worry about them
  • France’s players are all old and dying, and have Barthez in goal

So whichever team wins the World Cup, it will be a boring European team. Right now I’m thinking this is lacking the romance of Euro 2004 where totally random teams did exceptionally well. I’m never listening to a football expert again.
