Reign To End

Who's next?

European Championship (EC). Some would consider this a better competition than the World Cup but it's hard to compare something which is continental to competition that is world wide. For me, the World Cup still edges it. Since Spain won the last EC in 2008, they went on a 4 year reign that included adding the Jules Rimet trophy in 2010 to their trophy cabinet.

Can you remember the 1966 World Cup Final ........ you know, the one which ended with Bobby Moore (sadly deceased) lifting the Jules Rimet Trophy? It was on television and it was in black and white. Â I guess few of our readers were born back in those far off days..

The Dutch Get A Parade Too – A Canal Parade.

I have to think a canal ride is far better than a double-decker bus with a sweaty Carles Puyol, not to mention able to do the casual boating thing with a lightweight jacket tied casually around the waist as a few Dutchmen were doing (well played). Pretty good July afternoon, you'd think.

The concluding part of ‘Inspector Rooney and the Case of Jabulani Japery' sees how Tevez got away with the famous trophy, and how he was subsequently caught by the brilliant Inspector Rooney, along with a little help from a certain Mr. Ferdinand and a fluffy friend. Jon and Oli hope that you all enjoyed the comic and they promise to be back with some more new material soon!

Holland – are they any good or is it all luck?

After Holland defeated a capable Denmark team 2-0 in the group stages of the competition the Denmark coach, Morten Olsen, remarked that he fancied the Dutch team might win the Jules Rimet trophy. Most analysts saw the comment as trivial, a typical most match quip expected from a losing coach.

Spain – Trying to avoid disaster against their Iberian neighbours

Spain, the tournament favourites, have yet to perform at the 2010 World Cup as we know they can. We mentioned before the tournament began that competing in a competition with several important players short of fitness and form is a recipe for disaster. Disaster, as of today, has yet to be realised but let us not be mistaken anything but returning to Spain on the 12th July with the Jules Rimet trophy in hand will be seen as a disappointment.

Wednesday, with the future at stake (as always, as ever), there was something claustrophobic about the final games of the group stage. The ether was jammed with possibility. Algeria's nascent glory after the sixth-minute strike ... that didn't happen here, but its universe and ours shouldered past each other; America's rippling, riotous three-goal first half (full of clever touches) didn't happen here either, although it wasn't much farther away.

Shameful French Take a Page Out of the Dutch Book

By Darshan Joshi, writing from Australia

If you know what a ‘Dutch Book' is, in it's economic (as well as gambling) translation, then you'd realise that this is not what this is about. It is more of a literal ‘taking a page out of their book' rather than a witty, schizophrenic banderole.

Tomorrow is the big day, the day the 2010 World Cup finally kicks off in South Africa. It seems like it was eons ago that Italy hoisted that most precious hardware, the Jules Rimet Trophy, after Zizou's zany antics involving the hardest part of his head and the center of Materazzi's manly chest.

Slovakia World Cup 2010 Preview #24 (Group F) is a post from: Just Football

Slovakia

Appearances at World Cup finals: Slovakia are making their debut at the World Cup Finals as an independent nation. As Czechoslovakia, they reached eight finals competitions, making the Quarter Finals in 1938 and 1990, perhaps disappointing for a team which won the European Championships of 1976.

1970 Mexico
I was just 6 months old when England took the real/fake Jules Rimet trophy out to Mexico to defend their crown of 1966. We moan today about the distractions off the pitch for players, but it was no different forty years ago. The squad assembled by Alf Ramsey was regarded as stronger than in 1966, with many players now seen as at their peak.

A rare stamp auction is being held at Westminster Central Hall and the Jules Rimet trophy has pride of place as the centrepiece of the day. Yet, at some point on that Sunday afternoon, someone broke in to the case that was housing the trophy and stole it.

World Cup Tales – Overcoming The Great Humiliation: Brazil, 1958

As the second favourites to win the 2010 World Cup after Spain, Brazil are used to the pressure that comes with the eyes of the world being upon them. No other country on earth's identity is so closely associated with football, yet much of the mythology that surrounds the Brazilian national team stems their failure to win the tournament that they hosted in 1950.

I think "Red Fury" sounds like a sports drink, but what the heck do I know? I do know that if Spain does win it all, it will be for the first time in the country's history.

Someone tried to...do something with that World Cup trophy before the game, just after it'd been handed over by Fabio Cannavaro and placed on the fancy pedestal for the world to gawk. The "streaker" (generic term) ran onto the pitch and looked to be putting a beanie on the trophy before being laid out by a World Cup-quality clothesline by security.

The Ballad of Matthias Sindelar (Or How World War II Robbed Austria’s Golden Generation)

Just-Football at related • 0 views

The Ballad of Matthias Sindelar (Or How World War II Robbed Austria's Golden Generation) is a post from: Just Football

The name Matthias Sindelar should be familiar to football aficionados everywhere as well as historians, for that matter. But, by and large, it isn't. Chris Woolfrey elaborates on an iconic symbol of Austrian football:

In his book Inverting the Pyramid Jonathan Wilson writes that "the modern way of understanding and discussing the game was invented in the coffee houses of Vienna," and in the realisation of an aesthetic of Austrian football formed by Hugo Meisl's Wunderteam and their iconic forward Matthias Sindelar, a nation patronisingly deemed by some as too lowly for its role as co-host of the 2008 European Championship contributed perhaps more to the development of football than most so-called 'major' sporting nations ever have.

"Goalkeepers are not born, they are made. Every quality a keeper needs mental or physical can be acquired through training. He must be a perfectionist; always ready to develop and better themselves."

These are the wise words of the great Italian goalkeeper Dino Zoff a man who had achieved virtually everything; at the tender age of 40 he captained his side to World Cup glory in 1982.
