Pete Sixsmith always comes up with interesting aspects and at least we have a handful of players to keep our interest up: Jordan Pickford (pictured by his occasional driver, this site’s great friend and […]

Brazil 2014: Götze’s glorious strike makes it Germany 1 Argentina 0

gerfans1

It took a slice of true footballing genius to win it for Germany. But, anxious moments for Neuer aside, was there ever any serious doubt? … It finally became clear to me that Germany would win the 2014 World Cup on 60 minutes when the best goalkeeper of the tournament, Manuel Neuer, had his Harald […]

Germany vs Argentina Who are You?: (1) ‘why Die Mannschaft are invincible’

FACEBOOK

We did it in 2010 so why not again? The World Cup final is not, as we all know, as important, say, as MUFC v SAFC or SAFC v WBA were last season, or indeed a season-deciding match featuring Sunderland Ladies or the reserves. But it’s been, on the whole a grand tournament, and we […]

Brazil 2014: Belgium are a surmountable obstacle as USA ‘dare to dream’
