Ze pre-Vorld Cup appraisal

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has been telling South Africans where their World Cup preparations are up to, and as usual it is pure comedy gold. Football’s beloved leader begins by telling the gathered subordinates that the main problem is the surprising popularity in the world’s biggest sporting event, which has left an unforseen shortfall of accommodation. For this he prescribes a healthy dose of boats.

Blatter then describes the different noises football lovers can expect to hear in South Africa and, helpfully demonstrates these noises (2mins 5secs to 2mins 25secs is a joy to behold). And, not one for racial stereotypes, he then goes on to bemoan African work ethic and laziness, promising “another solution in my pocket if you don’t work”. Easy tiger.

    How about this for a quote?

    Football’s world governing body Fifa will commemorate the death of Cameroon midfielder Marc-Vivien Foe at the Confederations Cup final on Sunday.
    Foe collapsed on the field and lost consciousness during a Confederations Cup semi-final in France in 2003 and died soon after arriving in hospital.

    He was later found to have suffered from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a heart-related disease. He was 28.

    Fifa president Sepp Blatter said it was a “very sad and tragic event”.
    “What has come out of it is that football learnt about cardiological diseases.”

    Trust that man to make an ass of himself every time he opens his mouth.

    Yeah I never followed Blatter that closely until about 1 yr ago when he made his “Ronaldo slave” comments.. and it’s been down hill for him from a PR standpoint since…

    oh well – at the end of the day – he is just a suit and the reason we all love the beautiful game is because of the brilliance on the pitch, not craziness off of it…
