World Cup Day 1

Well the football World Cup kicked off today. Two draws didn’t exactly cause too much in the way of shocks. Nothing like the Senegal v France game 8 years ago when the World Cup holders lost their opening game. Henry was obviously unable to make his handling skills tell tonight.

Can I just point out to all the Septics who may be reading this that it’s the FOOTBALL World Cup organised by FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association). Not the Fédération Internationale de SOCCER Association.

World Cup Omens?
England to beat Germany in World Cup?

Its written in the numbers…

…Its 66 years this year since we gave the Germans a kicking on D Day and thereafter.

Of course 1966 was the year England beat Germany to win the World Cup.

So I make that as England to beat Germany again this year and win the World Cup or invade France again – either would be acceptable

About spen666

I'm a 40 something football fan and cyclist. I've been a football fanatic most of my life and have completed the 92 football league & premier league grounds Added to this numerous non league grounds, a number abroad and you start to get the picture. I took up cycling in around 2000. Although my father was a former World Vets Champion, I got into cycling accompanying my son to ride in London. This was followed by my commuting to work each day into Central London. Then doing some Sunday rides, then some audax events ( and then a week's cycling holiday in France with a friend. From there, I got more and more into cycling and in 2009 completed LEJoG and in 2010 rode in the USA with the Police Unity Tour. I completed blogs for those events at and Feel free to read them and learn more about me. I live alone which suits me as it gives me time at weekends to pursue my interests of cycling and football. (Well what did you expect me to say? That I'm sad at being single?) I'm currently looking for my next challenge. Any suggestions gratefully received.
