Salut a tous – this is a converstion I had this morning

Yes I watched the match . I was really disappointed, why didn’t Malouda play ? Surely Thierry Henry should be in the team ? We all expected a better performance. But maybe they’ll find some inspiration from somewhere. They all criticise the coach but it’s the eleven players on the pitch who have to take responsibility….

The words could come from a football pundit, a sports analyst, a journalist following the World Cup or even a player being paid to give pearls of wisdom on every kick of the next four weeks in South Africa.

Infact the wise words aboove on the Uruguay – France non-event came from the young lady who sold me my morning croissants at the boulangerie (bakery) near my home.

You don’t need to be a so called specialist to see what’s wrong. You don’t need to be a so-called sports specialist to have an analysis. Her words sum up exactly what’s wrong and what’s needed. Poor selection. Bad management.  Division with the ranks.
If she can see it, if thousands of ordinary fans can see it. Then why can’t the experts tell it like it is instead of hinding behind their sponsorships and contracts and transmission rights ?

South Africa ! Bravo ! Any team that dances into the stadium, plays, scores a magnificent goal, then dances back out again deserves to be World Champions.  So I’m hoping the Bafana Bafana can do the same as the Springboks in rugby and rule the world. Unless of course England can do it….. !
