England v Portugal

"Ghana have played wonderful football. Ivory Coast have played wonderful football. Holland and Spain, the same. If I had to pick one team, on Tuesday afternoon it would have been Spain. But where are they? Tell me, where are these four teams now? At home, that's where. And we are here. I'm not frustrated. I'm actually rather satisfied. OK, we can play better but, to win the World Cup, I'm prepared to do whatever. And if that means playing bad football then, come on, who cares?" - Sven gets tough. Yey!

2 Reasons we'll miss Argentina

1 - Riquelme's casual slapping skills

Love the way he just walks off after slapping Klose so casually! Klose looks completely baffled!

2 - Their football team

Letter in Sydney Morning Herald: On Australia's Exit

Just wanted to drop you all a note of condolence on your World Cup exit. Although you were never really good enough to be there in the first place, as one of our foreign outposts we think you did quite well and, most importantly, represented your Queen admirably. So, well done, little colony.

On the upside though, now at least your long-haired, scruffy, unclean teenage masses can all return to London to resume their minimum wage jobs, serving us thirsty English boys warm beer, just in time for the games on Friday and Saturday. Good timing, really, because as everyone agrees, the real tournament starts now that only the real footballing teams are left.

Well, chin up, anyway, pickpockets, and I suppose it's back to stealing your mothers' ironing boards and heading to the sea to try to dodge those hungry sharks. How sweet. Best regards and God save the Queen.

Guardian Finds Afghan Witnesses US Couldn't

A man spent 2 years in Guantanamo Bay because the US government could find any of his four witnesses. The Guardian newspaper steps in and finds them in 3 days!

The Guardian searched for Mr Mujahid's witnesses and found them within three days. One was working for President Hamid Karzai. Another was teaching at a leading American college. The third was living in Kabul. The fourth, it turned out, was dead. Each witness said he had never been approached by the Americans to testify in Mr Mujahid's hearing.


Only in Japan

Pantsu Getta, a Japanese term derived from the English words "panties" and "get," is the name given to the guys taking part in the online bounty hunt, as well as to the game itself.

A game starts when a woman posts a message announcing that she has hidden some undies in a certain area. Anybody interested in searching for the undergarments can post questions, which the woman can answer, and theoretically provide more specific clues about the location of the lingerie. When somebody finds a pair of panties, they're supposed to report all the details on the same bulletin board so that anybody still searching will know they can stop. On occasion, several pantsu getta will assemble at the same time and search for skids en masse.

England v Ecuador

Hands up everyone who knows anything about Ecuador. Actually, don't worry about that, we can't see you.

But if anyone asks you again, you'll be able to reel off a list of ten things - all thanks to

Will Stevie be the Hero again?

Will Steven Gerrard be England's hero and net his third World Cup goal against Ecuador this afternoon? Will Peter Crouch come off the bench to turn the game?

The nation will come to a stop at 4pm when Sven Goran Eriksson's men will be looking to overcome their South American opponents to seal a place in the quarter finals.

But how do you think the game will go? Who will be England's key players? Are you confident of an improved performance? What team would you pick for this game? What do you think the final score will be?

Craig Bellamy will be welcomed with open arms into the Liverpool dressing room.

The Anfield recruit today received a ringing endorsement of his talent and mentality from his new skipper Steven Gerrard.

Gerrard's enthusiasm for Bellamy's ability will be music to the ears of a player who it was claimed fell out with the senior members of the dressing room at Newcastle.

With both Gerrard and Jamie Carragher fans of the pacy forward, Bellamy couldn't wish for more powerful allies on his arrival.

Gerrard has brushed off the relevance of the much hyped troublesome reputation, arguing Bellamy will add a valuable 'nasty streak' to Liverpool's forward line.

And he's confident the Welshman's winning mentality will make him a huge favourite of The Kop.

"When all the Liverpool lads out here in Germany heard the deal had gone through, all of us were really happy," said Gerrard.

I'm made up by this, although it aint exactly breaking news anymore (apologies, been really busy with work).

Who's next? Kuyt? Torres? With a 25m plus pricetag, I can't see us going for Torres. But then do we need a 'top quality striker' that badly? - someone capable of 20+ goals a season? While it would be nice to have someone with that quality upfront, I believe its more important to get a right winger now that we've signed Bellamy. I'm not suggesting Bellamy's the answer to our problem upfront. However, and this is my theory, we have enough quality in the midfield and upfront to guarantee us a better season than last year - and last year was one of our best in recent years.

Lets have a look at it this way. How many goals would you need to have a successful season? We scored 57 last season. Chelsea scored 72 to win the league.

I'm not sure if anyone else remembers Rafa's interview just after the Simao deal fell through, on how not being able to sign a 20+ goals striker doesn't mean you won't be able to challenge for the title. We have a few players capable of 10-15 goals a season (Gerrard, Bellamy, Crouch) and a few more between the 7-10 goals-a-season count (Fowler, Kewell, Garcia, Gonzalez, Alonso) and I'd rather have it that way as its less of a risk and if anything, (injuries permitting) we are guaranteed an even better finish than last season.

Football Jokes

Rafa Benitez died and went to heaven. Upon his arrival he was led into a huge hall which had millions of clocks on the wall. He noticed each clock had a name on it and whilst waiting for god he spent time examining many of the clocks. God arrived and introduced himself.

"I've been expecting you Rafa" he said." Your time on earth is over. Now enjoy the afterlife."

"Okay" replied Rafa, "but what's with all the clocks?"

"They let me know when you are coming" replied god. "But if you speak any bullshit the minute hand will advance by one minute" he added.

"But where is Jose Mourinho's " questioned Rafa?

"We are using it in the kitchen as a fan" came the reply.


From Ahsan Ismat:

It's just before the England v Brazil match. Ronaldinho goes into the Brazilian changing room to find all his teammates looking a bit glum.

What's up?" he asks.

"Well, we're having trouble getting motivated for this game. We know it's important but it's only England They're shite and we can't be bothered."

Ronaldinho looks at them and says, "Well, I reckon I can beat them by myself... you lads go down the pub." So Ronaldinho goes out to play England by himself and the rest of the Brazilian team go off for a few jars.After a few pints they wonder how the game is going, so they get the landlord to put the teletext on. A big cheer goes up as the screen read" Brazil 1 - England 0 (Ronaldinho 10 minutes)". He is beating England all by himself!

A few pints later and the game is forgotten until someone remembers, "It must be full time now, let's see how he got on."

They put the teletext on. "Result from the Stadium ' Brazil 1 (Ronaldinho 10 minutes) - England 1(Lampard 89 minutes)."

They can't believe it, he has single-handedly got a draw against England!! They rush back to the Stadium to congratulate

Ronaldinho. They find him in the dressing room, still in his gear, sitting with his head in his hands.He refuses to look at them. "I've let you down, I've let you down." "Don't be daft, you got a draw against England, all by yourself. And they only scored at the very, very end!" "No, no, I have, I've let you down...I got sent off after 12 minutes....!!"


From David Graham

A German family head out one Saturday to do some shopping.

While in the sports shop the son picks up an England football shirt and says to his sister, "I've decided to be an England supporter and I would like this for my birthday."

His big sister is outraged by this and promptly whacks him round the head and says, "Go and talk to your mother."

So off goes the little lad with the white and red football shirt in hand and finds his mother.


"Yes son?"

"I've decided I'm going to be an England supporter and I would like this shirt for my birthday".

The mother is outraged at this, promptly whacks him around the head twice and says, "Go and talk to your father."

Off he goes with the football shirt in hand and finds his father.


"Yes son?"

"I've decided I'm going to be an England supporter and I would like this shirt for my birthday."

The father is outraged and promptly whacks his son around the head 4 times and says: "No son of mine is ever going to be seen in THAT!"

About half an hour later they're all back in the car and heading towards home.

The father turns to his son and says: "Son, I hope you've learned something today?"

The son says, "Yes dad, I have."

"Good son, what is it?"

The son replies, "I've only been an England supporter for an hour and already I hate you German bastards."
