The space at the top of my SiteMeter stats page is usually occupied by some Flash-based advert, and I nearly snorted Dr pepper from my nostrils when I checked it out earlier today, and saw this:

A little premature? Bah! Not in the slightest

Well played, France, but it appears that Italy is the Final Victor.

I was kinda torn there, as I like France as a country, but I fell in love with Juventus when I was first getting into footie a few years ago. Plus, Buffon is a pretty impressive keeper; at least when I’d seen him. Shame about Zidane being sent off, though. For a while, I actually thought France would take the Cup.. Nevertheless, an intense game!

FYI: the illos of the footie lasses (with the exception of the England one in the first post) were drawn by Kagami of Utility-pole spirit, and the CG Japanese lass in this post was done by M-RS of incise soul.

England in 2010, damnit!

It was an honourable defeat! Well, ish.

Four days left, people! If Italy walks home (not literally) with the Cup, that’d be fab, but if France does it, I’ll be surprised.. I’m still rooting for Germany, but Portugal might well snatch it from their respective grasps, and run away giggling! O NOES!!1!
Four days left until THE FOOTBALL APOCALYPSE

GRRR. Crazy game, though. In fact, that’s the longest match I’ve ever seen..

Well, if Germany wins the Cup, I’ll be happy. Not as happy as I’d be if Engerland won, but still

Good try, though — you get an A for Effort. Or whatever the equivalent grade is, as according to the Japanese school system.

This should also satisfy whatever furtive individual(s) who keep hitting ‘Shouting etc etc’ by typing ‘sexy anime girls’ into Google

Before Alan Partridge got his own chat show, Norfolk’s Favourite Son used to firmly grip the sportsdesk on ‘The Day Today‘. Here’s an old, yet relevant, clip!

Absolutely classic

One could accurately describe me as the most casual football fan ever — I’ve only been into it for the past three or so years, and I don’t keep up with it as much as I could be. I like Manchester Utd for obvious reasons; Juventus, probably cos they were the first Italian team I’d seen; and Bayern München, cos Ollie Kahn’s goalkeeping skills impressed me, even though he’s a bit of an adulterer. O, and there’s Gatas Brilhantes H.P., but as it’s a futsal team composed of Japanese idol singers, I don’t think they really count. Nevertheless, as far as the 2006 World Cup goes, I know who I’m backing..
