The FIFA World Cup 2010

After all the bullshit spouted about the World Cup in South Africa, it has taken the down to earth decency and honesty of a former Rugby Union player to tell it as it actually was. Namely:

The standard of football was shite.

If Spain play the most beautiful football the world has ever seen how did they manage no more than one goal in any game, the point of the game being to score goals?

'Top class' footballers are spoilt, petulent brats who are more than happy to cheat, including the Spaniards.

Africans are not all happy smiley people in bright clothes, many live in abject poverty under brutal dictatorships.

The awe and wonder that the tournament happened without major disaster/cock-up is highly patronising towards Africans, but typical of the PC brigade.

The Vuvuzela is not a great African tradition, it's an oversized plastic childrens' horn that pisses most normal people off, and only surfaced about 10 years ago.

Some of the above has my personal interpretation to add a little spice but here is Brian Moore's full article, it is well worth a read.
