They Take Their Soccer Seriously, Don't They?


Courtesy of Deadspin, two memorable headlines from The Sun and The Daily Mail, about the English getting crushed by Germany yesterday in South Africa. I'm sure all the tabloids there have their knives out today.

The Daily Mail headline reminds me of a memorable line from the classic comedy, "Taxi," and the great Louie DePalma, dressing down the cab drivers:

"If you guys had been at Normandy, we'd all be eating strudel right now."

Glad to see they took it so well

I'm sure those headlines were tame in comparison...

I will say that call was obviously brutal and did change the game. If they do not want to adopt technology why don't they for World Cup games have a goal line judges who do not budge from the goal line (along with ref assistants) - with all that is invested just a little more money would help to ensure the most important calls get right

I've heard about the idea of putting an official behind each goal, and I believe the Europa League is going to do that next season. I think it's a good idea, Rick...
