Did we win?

CF takes little or no interest in football himself, but he has just been informed by some excitable people - who have painted their faces white and red for some reason - that 'our' team, the team called Ing-er-Laand, have just completed a heroic victory over the fiendish Japanese team.

Judging by their excitement, Japan must be a mighty footballing nation. Perhaps the mightiest. After all, the Japanese invented fireworks, and rice, and the printing press, so perhap they also invented Sok-Ker. Who knows?

So, does that mean that the World Cup is over, then? CF thought it finished with some penalties, then lots of fat people crying in pubs. Perhaps not, this time.

Did we win?

I only wish it were that simple CF ..

Unfortunately, we have yet to be subjected to the entire mind-bogglingly boring saga that is the World Cup ..

Now if it were played to a "sudden-death" finish .. where each losing team were killed by the winning team, it might just become interesting ..

Hardly a win ! however he was trying a few new formations , anyhow enjoyed channel 4s the genius of Britain , didnt realise Newton and Hook actually conversed which led to pricipia mathmatica over the question of how a comet moved through the heavens .What ever did the late 17th century ever do for us eh !

Why if it want for newton we wouldnt understand light , if we didnt understand light we wouldnt have invented radio , and if we hadnt understood radio we would never have invented TV and if we never had invented TV , we wouldnt have had eurovison . I blame Newton

Newton Hated Hook, in fact he slagged him off with his "standing on the shoulders of Giants " soundbite. The reason was clearly Newtons jealousy of Hook from whom he stole many ideas. The fact that Hook was a hunched midget explains the sarcastic comment.
