so it's real football we are talking about then- not that wimp's excuse for rugby that you yanks call football?

Most people here don't give a shit about the real football. In fact, I may be the only Merkin here who follows it, mainly because I grew up outside of the influence of American football.

Brazil vs USA. Who do you think will win? I can't imagine Brazil stumbling against the US team, but then I didn't expect Spain to lose either.
No fucking way in hell will they win w/ stats like these against Brazil:

Yeh we know the Merkins like stats, but there's only one stat that matters. & that's what's so good about the beautiful game. Anything can happen

Having said that, Brazil will piss it obviously.

thank goodness he's on our side

why do the Merkins like stats? altho- thinking about the baseball game I went to once I kind of understand- it was sooooo boring they must have to find something to do other than sing that silly song at whatever 'innings' it was

Yes, we're not talking about the aptly named American football, where the ball is played with the foot about 0.003% of the time.

Middle of the 7th inning, "Take Me Out To The Ballgame".

If stats weren't recorded for baseball, the sport would have died on its ass 100 years ago.

Spain was too arrogant. All the players were talking about the final during the pre-match interview. It was unbelievable. I remember I was thinking: you'd better not have to eat some humble pie.

Can't remember Gazza taking one? Now Goldenballs in Euro 2004 was a crying shame.
