    Apparently Stefan Kuntz now manages a German team where he has signed Danny Fuchs and Florian Dick :)

    Claim it anyway. No one will notice and if they do who cares? It's the way of today's world.

    I think you may be right with that one. It's where I always have a gripe with the World Cup and it qualification by geographical location. Teams like Italy and the Netherlands absent for example yet you then see the quality of the Saudis and wonder why everyones time is being wasted. I understand why they do it like that though, I can't think of another equitable solution to keep the dross out and also the current set up does produce fixtures that you wouldn't normally ever see such as Peru v Denmark. Not that I will watch that game mind you but they are the kind of fixtures that let you know it is the WC.

    Simple solution.
    If you have never reached the semi finals then you do not get invited. Sarcasm.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    on it like a car bonnet.

    tbh, the MFs and i quite like games like this: teams you will never, ever watch normally.

    usually rubbish but generally elements of comedy gold and maybe a chance of a corker of a game such as the Russia game yesterday.

    as a trauma specialist i am particularly loving that concussion protocol that was just displayed by the Moroccan medical team:

    squirt some water from a bottle in his face and then slap him a few times.

    rocking.

    At least they stopped short of kicking him in the nuts I suppose.

    What, do you specialise in traumatising people? Who'd have thought it?
