7 Reasons That The Netherlands Will Win The World Cup.

7 Reasons That The Netherlands Will Win The World Cup.

1.  Un-likeability.  Almost every successful World Cup team contains at least one thoroughly un-likeable character: Maradona, Rudi Voller, Gerd Muller and Marco Materazzi are all World Cup winners and in their squad the Netherlands have diving, whinging, sour-faced git Arjen Robben (the only thoroughly un-likeable Dutch person), so they’re bound to succeed.  How we’ll all loathe him when he lifts the World Cup aloft on Saturday.  But,...

7 Reasons I Shouldn’t Do A Mexican Wave In My Living Room

7 Reasons I Shouldn’t Do A Mexican Wave In My Living Room

Ever wondered what would happen if you started a Mexican wave in your own living room?  I did.  I thought it through during the Brazil vs. Chile match last night.  I won’t be starting one.     1.  I’ll look foolish.

It’s been a fraught week at 7 Reasons (.org).  First we upgraded the website, then we redesigned the website, then we had a catastrophic failure of the website which left us offline for a day and then we fixed it, and are still tinkering with it to make it more stable.  This caused confusion.  We didn’t know whose turn it was to post yesterday.  So, being diligent, conscientious humourists, we both wrote one.  Sadly, we found...

7 Reasons England Will Beat Ze Germans

7 Reasons England Will Beat Ze Germans

1.  Ze German Edlines. The German hacks are primed to write such classics as So Klose, But So Far. Although obviously they’ll write it in German. So it’ll be something like Zo Klose, But Zo Var. Basically, Miroslav Klose is going to take a shot from 50-yards which ricochets off the crossbar, flies up the other end of the pitch and finds the net. Net result England 1-0 Germany. German hacks have their headlines. 2.  Ze Tactics. I...
