    The reason WC10 has been less than spectacular to many is because of the jabulani ball. Just as icy roads would take away the thrill of F1 racing, dulling the skills shown by the drivers, so the world cup has been soccer played tentatively and without the normal standard of confidance and competence on the ball. This has reduced the level of play to early MLS levels at times making for a boring display. I shake my head at the highlight reel from thus WC. Adidas committed a blunder (the ball plus the altitude) and the level of play suffered.

    Great pre-match analysis of the final

    …and as it turned out Kartik nailed it…!

    here’s something I found that reflects an idea Ive contemplated a lot…

    “You might even mistake the Spanish national team for FC Barcelona, because it harbors no fewer than seven Barcelona players in its usual starting lineup. The evident advantages of such a set-up hardly need stressing — the innate familiarity of the players with each other’s moves and idiosyncrasies…”.

    What about this aspect?
    That these WC sides are basically all-star teams that can never gel like a club team can?
    And that Spain with 7 Barca teammates on the pitch has been at a considerable advantage over these ad hoc national teams?

    thanks for making this WC incalculably more enjoyable

    …bring on the EPL!
