Adidas Launch New World Cup Ball – The Brazuca

If you're a follower of my ramblings, you'll know I'm a traditionalist when it comes to anything designed in football, so I was naturally really looking forward to the unveiling of anything, let alone something as important as the ball that'll be adorned by the world for the next six months.

Spain Crowned Champions of Europe!

Once again I must apologise for my tardy post on this topic, but I couldn’t help partying with the hundreds of thousands of people on the streets of Vienna after the match and then the next morning, after about one hour of shut-eye, I was boarding a plane to come home.So by now there’s no...

Review – Germany 3 v 2 Turkey

Philipp Lahm rifled home a superb winner in the 90th minute to finally put away the Turks, who threatened to take the match into extra time when Semih Senturk made it 2-2 with four minutes left on the clock. A relieved Joachim Loew said: In the closing minutes, we were trembling and Turkey never gave...

Prediction – Germany v Turkey

Predicting the outcome of the previous matches has been tougher than watching Donadoni make a coaching decision that didn’t work against him… surely there are more talented Ities out there capable of coaching the team!?Anyway, looking at the game at hand the Turks are very, very, very under strength at the moment and will be...

Review – Portugal 2 v 3 Germany

It was an all out offensive in the opening 30 minutes by ze Germans, a Blitzkrieg if you must and it caught the Portuguese defense at sixes and sevens. I honestly thought that Portugal had the goods to make the finals this year, but ze Germans stepped up when it mattered most and uncharacteristically threw...

Prediction – Portugal v Germany

These two teams came into the tournament as bookies favourites and tonight one of them goes home. I’m backing Portugal to progress, mainly because they’ve played more consistently throughout the group phase and have more experience in their team. Germany on the other hand have played well in patches, but their opponents were no where...

Review – Austria 0 v 1 Germany

Matches between Austria and Germany are always heated affairs. National pride is the key motivator and emotions run wild, so what better way to see them in action other than putting them in a crammed stadium and watching them slog it out to the death… well almost. I lost track of the foul count early...

Review – Croatia 2 v 1 Germany

If you hear me talking funny today it’s cause I just burnt my tongue eating humble-pie and wondering how I was so wrong about this match. Thankfully I didn’t have any money riding on it… which is strange cause If I was sure of two things when I woke up yesterday they were:1. Italy have...

Prediction – Croatia v Germany

The industrious Germans face their second hurdle tonight… a Croatian team that didn’t really impress in their first match. I don’t think it’s difficult to figure out who I think will bring home the small goods. I predict:Croatia 1 v 2 Germany

Review – Germany 2 v 0 Poland

Lukas Podolski netted both goals against the country of his birth to give Germany a winning start to their Euro 2008 campaign against Poland in Klagenfurt. I don’t really know why the Pol’s showed up for this one… They were outclassed all over the pitch and ze Germans could have made them pay on several...
