Golden Boot for Tact

Another question: did I imagine the following line of TV commentary in the Holland-Denmark game?

'Three hundred years after arriving in South Africa, the Dutch are back, hoping to conquer again.'


  1. "That system was obviously fundamentally flawed", said Hansen of appartheid last night, as if it was a 5-3-2 with wingbacks.

  2. How about Alans Shearer's delightful insight (this might not be verbatum) that 'it's not in Nigeria's culture to accept 1-0' when they were losing 1-0 to Argentina.
