So Germany have to win two World Cup matches in order to balance our score again. I have a vaguely bad feeling about this, because everyone is so goddam smug about our national side saying we are better than ever and so on, which totally rubs me the wrong way.

So,

Played 175, won 64, drawn 45, lost 66

it is before the World Cup. Let's see how it goes.

Anyone care to predict the CL Final at the end of next week? I am afraid the DDD (Dirty Diving Dago) and his lot, our own Toni Kroos among them, are heavy favourites, but never misunderestimate Jürgen Full Throttle Klopp and his gang in a fighting mood.

Yep, you just have to win two more than you lose . . .

Dirty Diving Dago -v- Heysel Stadium and the rest of the shite they do. I'd prefer "meteor" myself but I'll take a Real win.

We usually draw or lose one first round match (the second one, mostly), so the first round plus winning the round of last 16 will probably give us a neutral balance at least.

Important question: Are penalty shootouts draws or wins?

Real wins ARE getting a bit old, aren't they. In terms of motivation, I should probably root for Real, as that would give us at least on CL champion in our national squad - but I WANT to see the DDD cry and complain....

For everyone interested, here is our provisional lineup. Jogi will have to strike 4 players off the list by June 4 or something.

OMFFSM that is so vile.

The GDR did something like that to the Jews, by the way. "Oh no, we are the new Germany, the good one, not THAT Germany. We have nothing to do with them and aren't under any obligation to pay off their debts. Just turn to Bonn for that matter".

Bravo, youngling!

Our German season is winding down. We had a very exciting Cup Final, Frankfurt won 3-1 against Bayern and it was such great fun to see the almighty Bayern on the receiving end of disputed ref decisions (twice, and both of them led to goals for the opposition).

Wolfsburg managed not to be relegated to the Second League against Kiel (oh, I know how exciting you'll find that bit of information). Second vs. Tird League relegation playoffs are still under way with Aue having managed a goalless draw in Karlsruhe. Isn't that Earth-shattering?

My fuck-up specialists from Berlin and Fürth are enjoying a not-very-well-deserved holiday, so the count is unchanged until June 17.

Our new shirts have just been revealed. Home one is a fucking hideous union jack-y thing that gives me the boke and will never buy or wear.

Saw come clips from that game, including two spectacular 'keeping howlers. I think the second one was probably the funniest.

Austria 2 - 1 Germany

It was only a test match, so it's not in the count. But it,s always shitty to lose against the Schluchtis (first ime in 32 years), answe played really, really, really shite. And honest, it was not the goalie's fault

Normally cricket results are the dullest thing in the universe, and although I don't understand the numbers I did have a wee smile at this one.

Scotland played well, England were complacent and thought they would win regardless. I laughed.
