French Troops

The day after the French debacle against Mexico a friend mentioned a quote from Napoleon to me. Apparently, the vertically challenged-one said 'give me English troops' implying that he would have won at Waterloo if he had, like Abramovich, been able to spend millions on putting his 'team' together. I've not been able to confirm to validity of the quote but I doubt if Domenech repeated this sentiment especially once he'd seen our performance against Algeria.

Brazil v Ivory Coast

The BBC studio team are clearly undeclared followers of Chicken Balti Pies as they have been extolling the virtues of 2 holding midfield players! Though why does Hansen keep referring to Gilberto as Silva! We have, in the past, been linked with Felipe Melo but no doubt his value will increase as Brazil progress in the WC.
