The 200% World Cup: Artist’s Impression, number 8

Luis Suarez, eh? He’s big news. As surely as a team coached by Fabio Capello plunge headlong into igniminious early elimination at each and every World Cup, Luis Suarez will find a way to make his presence felt. Usually by biting your shoulder. Although I believe that Branislav Ivanovic got off with the old ear nibble. So he’s not afraid to mix it up, no doubt one of the factors that makes him such an unpredictable and difficult opponent.

Their opponents, Costa Rica, are already through to the knockout stages for only the second time in their history,...

The 200% World Cup: Artist’s Impression, number 7

As the noted philosopher Chris Martin from Coldplay says, “everything’s not lost”. Only England could be so down and out yet do it in such a way that there is still a sliver of hope. After all, it’s the hope that kills you and as another noted philosopher stated last night, supporting England isn’t supposed to be easy. Still, as higher mathematicians everywhere are pointing out, the fat lady has not yet sung for England. But there’s every chance it’s just because she’s been delayed in traffic. For the most optimistic among you, our resident Emeritus Professor of Hard Sums...
