Podcast Extra: Saving The World Cup

Footballers play too many matches these days. International football is dead. Two pulsating soccer soundbites that no self-respecting football pundit would be without: check them out the next time you watch Match of the Day, they are both there, discreetly bulging in the pockets of their shiny, shiny trousers. And FIFA seem hell-bent on turning the World Cup finals into… well, something or other. We’re not quite what, but we don’t like the smell of it. Now, before we go any further, if you’re interested in listening to this week’s Twohundredpercent podcast and the draw referred to below as...

We have Spain’s late show against the Czech Republic, a goal scored for Ireland by somebody whose name has now changed to Hoola-houghton – one for the thirtysomethings plus, there – and Italy, the old masters, being more Italian than anybody could have imagined in overcoming a disjointed looking Belgium side.

Dotmund’s Eureux Tapestry: Day 4

Today’s instalment of our epic Eureux Tapestry series – and what could be a better way of catching up with all the latest international football than fifteenth century French religion? – reflects on yesterday’s matches, featuring the massed ranks of Northern Ireland’s defence, Verdan Corluka spilling blood for his cause and Jerome Boateng’s goal-line acrobatics. Fortunately, there’s no reference to Jogi Loew sniffing his own junk, something for which I think we should all be grateful.

Dotmund’s Eureux Tapestry: Day 3

We had another terrible day in Marseille yesterday, so here’s a little light relief in the form of another instalment of Dotmund’s Eureux Tapestry, which features Gareth Bale’s bun, a little fraternal disagreement and, of course, quite a few bottles flying through the air.
