Okay, so Thierry Henry hasn’t cheated today, but ironically he was the one looking for a handball with 2 minutes to go v Uruguay.
France, as expected, struggled in their opening game. Logically you would play the all encompassing Sidney Govou when you had Florent Malouda and the cheat on the bench – but that’s Domenech for you.
But overall we’ve had a couple of average games accompanied by some poor commentary from SBS.
On what planet do they think allying Kevin Muscat with David Bashir was a good idea? If SBS want to attract viewers in the long term they need to think about creating some excitement in the commentary for those boring games. They exist, despite the pretence the FIFA propaganda would have you believe.
The sound of buzzing bees makes me think, how do the players know when they are being cheered or not?
It makes me wonder what would an Australian hosted world cup sound like? All loudspeakers and rubbish music over the PA as we have become used to at grounds here. With nary a sound from the home crowd.
Harsh? I doubt it – have you ever been to a Rugby League or AFL match in Australia?
Apparently, there was an ‘Opening Ceremony’ too. Someone needs to tell TV Networks and Septic Blatter the Opening Ceremony in a Football tournament is the National Anthems before the game.
They’re enough bad tunes for anybody.
