Almost Blue

Bildergebnis für vintage soccer

I watched the last two games on UEFA Euro 2016 last evening and was once more impressed by the Italian team. Now they are the hottest aspirant for winning the tournament. Looking forward to Saturday when Germany meets Italy. I believe in our team and think by myself we have a big chance if we attack them and play straight forward. In the last game I was surprised that Iceland has beaten England. What happened to the Three Lions? A team with extraordinary players lost again a hard fighting team. It was so disappointing to see highly paid professionals having no idea snapping Iceland's defence. Probably it's the fault of Roy Hodgson who had the wrong tactic for the game and it is time to send him in retirement. But it's not me that should judge about him and the team. Sad to miss England so let's cheer for Wales.

"Probably it's the fault of Roy Hodgson who had the wrong tactic for the game" I think it was more a case of Hodgson having no tactics whatsoever. England were clueless. They could have played for another hour and they'd still have lost. Our media is having a field day, of course, and will now, no doubt ignore Wales almost completely and focus instead on Wimbledon.

England - out of Europe twice in four days. The rot is setting in already...

Sorry to say this Walter, but I quite fancy Italy to beat Germany. They just look more convincing to me. Their performance last night was brilliant. Of course, now I've said that, Germany will probably win 5-0...

(Oh, I should say - the Iceland fans are the best in the tournament by far. That thing they do with the clapping and the grunting - like some kind of Icelandic haka - is amazing.)

Already looking forward to do that Icelandic haka thingy over the phone when my beloved British agent will call me in an hour or so ... will turn out to be great fun, I think ... at least for me ....

And on a different note: of course we'll beat Italy on the weekend. It won't be easy, but in the end we'll succeed!

I'm woefully unqualified to add to the footie conversation - top tunes though Walter!

The Icelandic Hakka rocks - highlight of the tournament

Saw The Cure last night and even Robert Smith took a moment to just yell out "Fucking Iceland! Can you believe it?!?"
