World Cup Farce
Well, in the words of Peter Gabriel's "Biko", "The eyes of the World are watching now, watching now" and, to be frank, South Africa fluffed its lines as the great squib of a World Cup draw stumbled through to its anticlimax. Where was the razzmatazz? And what on earth had happened between the two presenters back stage? They took more pot shots at each other during the draw than Wenger and Ferguson have managed over the past decade!
No music, no flashing lights, no tic-a-tac, no audience reaction - it was more like a lecture on how to prune rose bushes than the draw for the greatest football competition in the world. Limp, tame, sterile, bland - bit like the group that Italy have been drawn in! Meanwhile, there will be some head scratching back at the ANC headquarters. I'm damn sure that South Africa were not meant to draw France, Mexico and Uruguay!
As for our group, well I am happy with that and we shoulld be able to get through the next round and the quarter final too. Brazil might prove tricky in the semifinal, but I think they will crash out early so I don't see that game even happening. Come on England!
