A mate text me who was watching the game in Munich with a Mexican family. As happy as they were for the win, he was more impressed with their eating ability. 2 whole pork knuckles and 3 snitchals (sp) and three of them were under 10.

World Cup Trivia.I wonder if anyone can tell me (preferably without checking) which 4 players with an Espanyol connection have appeared in the WC so far?

Only 1 is a current club player (two of the others were loan players).

Yep, I thought of you and how you'd tried to get him a trial when I saw how well he was playing.

The standard has improved so much. Other than Saudi Arabia there are no duff teams. Teams are organised, players are technically proficient. I suspect football can now support a 48 team competition. Whether the format works is another thing though...

Definitely, think of some of the teams that are missing! Netherlands, Italy, Chile. The world is smaller now, every nation is getting top quality coaching and there are very few easy games in international football.

At the ballet.
Got friends over from Perth so we all went to walkabout fir the aussie game. So unlucky but a top performance, Trent Sainsbury was outstanding, to think he wanted a trial here years ago when he was over but got no response from the club

You'd think at least one team would check out an emerging talent like Sainbury. Shame if he's left on the shelf, he Asda have another chance at a big money move. Perhaps his agent needs to shop around a little more.

I blame it on the ref spraying those White lines down...the Columbians got confused.
