England Fans and the WC, Andrade to TFC

That's not watercloset by the way, although it should be said the above two don't often meet in international tournaments. No I'm talking about the World Cup, as in, why are England fans the only Europeans buying tickets? Bill Archer blames issues with security, so maybe travelling England fans are used to being the major "issue with security" during internationals so what's a few back alley robberies here and there.

Seriously, maybe there's something weird to me about the discrepancy; maybe it's a sort of nebulous demographic encapsulating specific economic, cultural differences and security concerns.

Meanwhile, Jorge Andrade is trialling for TFC, and the Footy Blog sort of acts like a green light means our defense is going to be alright after all. I never trust these one-off elderly player runouts. TFC's sizeable Portugal contingent will have something to be happy about, if you buy into that simplistic ethno-marketing clap-trap. But I see that 46 goals maybe dropping to 43 if he shows up and plays well, the likelihood being about nil-ish.

Also, Fake Sigi responded to my post yesterday. I regret slagging Dan in with the other Big Soccer writers, that's all. I'm told these are "important writers" so I'll read a little more intently I suppose. I like how the commenter called me a "kid."

....oops.

Um, no, you probably shouldn't apologize to me, I really am a dick.

Keep your head up kid!

If you really want, I can start trolling on your blog and we can pretend it's a forum.


ANDRADE IS WAY TOO OLD. TFC ARE IDIOTS. I WRITE IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE MY MOM DID NOT HOLD ME WHEN I WAS YOUNG. PAY ATTENTION TO ME OR I WILL CALL YOU AN IDIOT. IDIOT. I-D-I-O-T.

This topic and the assorted comment threads have turned out twice as awesome as I'd hoped.
