World Cup: Neuer’s Confession (no Gestapo needed!)

June 27, 2010

This comment from German goal keeper, Maunuel Neuer, now has me fuming and is on my HIT LIST along with ass. ref. Jorge Larrionda:

“I didn’t react because I just wanted to concentrate on carrying on and making the game fast,” said Neuer, who plays for Schalke in the German Bundesliga. “I realized it was tight, but I was quite sure it was over the line. I think that perhaps the way I carried on so quickly fooled the referee and made him think it was not over.”

So, no Gestapo interrogation needed there. Why didn’t he have the INTEGRITY to fess up then and there…? If the German’s are happy to have won by… well… it’s as close to CHEATING as you can get, based on the above CONFESSION…! so be it, look where it got them the last time they tried to make up the rules in Europe?

The fact that Germany went on playing the advantage with 2 more goals cannot be considered due to the psychological advantage entering the second half one goal up creates.

I’m not happy with the German team, nor the ref’s WRONG decision. I rest my case.

“Oi ref, sort it out…!”

Well, it’s not long now until Fabio Capello announces the official squad for the 2010 England team, and only 77 days until the kickoff for the first match against the US. The tension is already mounting, and it’s brilliant that we’ve had so much attention for our catchy, little number “Chant like an English fan” this time around. BUT… more important than all of that in deciding England’s fate this year is the question…

“Will we be fortunate enough to have unbiased referees this year?”

In time-honoured World Cup tradition, we are bound to get stiffed with at least a French or Italian ref for at least one game, so fans, get your spare spectacles ready to throw at the pitch!

Just to help you along and vent your frustration at blatant knobbling by jealous foreign refs that can’t stand to lose fair and square, and you feel like screaming at them in their own language JUST-SO-THEY-UNDER-STAND here are the French, Italian, and German translations of “Oi, ref… ARE YOU BLIND…?”

German: “Hey, Schiedsrichter, bist Du Blind?”

French: “Hé, l’arbitre, n’est-ce pas aveugle ?”

Italian: “Ehi, l’arbitro, lei è cieco?”

77 days to go, get yer “Chant” on, and remember to always “Chant like an English fan!”
