Given the fact that the semifinals 2 yrs ago were staffed only by European teams this tournament is close might have come close to a real world championship. Being 100% German + having an Italian cousin + my two best friends coming from Sweden and Turkey + adoring Zinedine Zidane ==> it is not so easy to make up my mind, for whom my heart is beating. Okay, my German blood wants Michael Ballack to receive take the trophy after the finals, but, honestly, I do NOT think that the actual German team is competitive at all, - I wouldn't even be surprised if we go home after the group stage. I have played soccer for roughly 3 decades and during all that time ENGLAND was the key benchmark. They have the - by far - highest speed in the game, sensational players and an outstanding sense of fairness. So a tournament without England is a somewhat numb affair to me. The games are starting in a few minutes, - the streets are completely empty over here, while the public viewing places are overcrowded, but I will drink my beer hoping that, as a compensation, England will win the next world championship. Portugal or Turkey might make the "micro-EURO" in the meantime ....
Arsenal come back from behind twice to beat LIverpool 4-2! Henry gets a hatrick!! He truly is a world class striker and apprently although i didnt see it his 2nd goal (I think) was amazing...beating 2 or 3 players and slotting cooly past Dudek. The only other result i know is that Spurs were well beaten by Everton 3-1. Evertone are crap but they can still beat Spurs..what does that tell you! Rooney and Ferguson werent even playing! I really hoep the new Spurs manager can instill some passion, pride and fight in this Spurs team...it is emabarrassing to watch! More gams in the next few days...Arsenal ahve to play Newcastle...that should be a great game...
