GREAT WORLD CUP? PAUL THE OTHER ONE

From Guest West London Blogger The Shepherds Mush

They were supposed to have taken the World Cup by storm, but in the final reckoning, Messi, Ronaldo and Rooney were upstaged by an octopus called Paul.

Another spineless World Cup performance

While much of the football in South Africa was a load of old tentacles, Small Paul (that’s his DJ name) rose from nowhere to topple the vuvuzela as the undisputed star of the tournament.

With eight out of eight predictions correct (one for each leg) he bowed out of the World Cup undefeated – a record shared only by the mighty New Zealand – and what’s more, Paul’s exploits are said to have attracted the attentions of more than a few OOHs (that’s Octopi’s Other Halves to you and I).

My mate foolishly backed against him for the final and had a few squid on the Dutch cloggers, who single-handedly - and double-footedly – ensured the World Cup final was more big game-hunt than big game. Agent Orange? There wasn’t a gent amongst them.

Anyway, back to the octopus. The Weymouth exile living in Germany, has officially retired from his role of pulling mussels from flag-covered boxes, and is going back to the simple life of catching a few waves and hanging out with plankton – which was pretty much the story of Stephen Warnock’s World Cup.

Which brings us nicely to England – from golden generation to golden shower in the space of four dismal games.

Like Steve Harmison’s opening delivery in the 2006/07 Ashes, the moment Rob Green decided to throw the ball into the net against the U-S-A you knew (to borrow a phrase from Dad’s Army) we were all doomed.

If Green was Private Frazer, then Capello was Captain Mainwaring, employing his tried-and-tested carrot-stick approach (minus the carrot) but ultimately coming across as a bumbling buffoon.

Of course, the Italian was keen to retain his position as Top Don in order to trouser another few million – sorry, to put right his mistakes – although his plans have been thrown into turmoil by the devastating news that Emile Heskey has retired from international football (some thought he’d retired before the tournament started).

As for the Boy Wonder, he went missing for longer than Raoul Moat – and sadly there was no Gazza arriving on his white charger with chicken and lager to bail him out.

Sir Alex Ferguson put Rooney’s no-show down to tiredness. That’s the same Fergie who flogged Rooney through a 44-game season before tossing his crumpled carcass back to Capello.

Then there was Frank Lampard’s ‘goal’ against Germany, where the ball couldn’t have been further behind the line had he sent it via courier marked ‘back of the net’.

Thankfully, in times of trouble you can always rely on the French to put a smile on your face. Evra and the boys were in such a strop that when they threw the toys out of the pram, pillows, sheets and baby followed swiftly after.

Italy joined France on the first plane home and for a while it looked as if Spain might join them as they crashed to a shock opening defeat at the hands of the Swiss.

The over-emotional Iker Casillas was met by his TV presenter girlfriend immediately afterwards and rather than console him, she simply said, live on air: “How did you manage to muck that up?” No wonder he always seems to be crying.

The soundtrack to the World Cup was, of course, those dastardly vuvuzelas.

Rumour has it Happy Mondays legend Bez was trying to watch the opening game at his local, when his mate asked if he was OK.

“Buzzin’ man!” came the reply.

“Top,” said his mate.

“No,” screamed Bez: “Stop that fookin buzzin’, man!”


"I can't even say vuzoo-fookin-vela"

The English fans did their best to make their feelings known in the match with Algeria, but the chant of “You can stick your vuvuzelas up your arse!” was sadly drowned out by…well, take a wild guess.

The first game between South Africa and Mexico finished 1-1 – just like the first game at every World Cup. When the side from Central America had a goal ruled out, coach Javier Aguirre turned into Kevin the Teenager on the touchline in what was officially the tournament’s first Mexican rave.

Aside from the vuvuzela and the octopus, the other big talking point was of course the ‘roundest ever’ Jabberwocky ball, which was brought in to create more goals, yet resulted in the lowest-scoring tournament of the 32-team era. Because no-one could control the bloody thing.

No-one, that is, except the Germans, who had been playing with it for a year because the Bundesliga had the right sponsors.

Incidentally, how come every time the Germans were scoring goals for fun they were described as ‘ruthless’, ‘efficient’ and ‘typical’ - yet when Spain ground out 1-0 win after 1-0 win (all right, they can pass a bit) it was ‘fantastic’, ‘mesmerising’ and ‘unbelievable’?

Returning to the Jabberwotsit and England’s biggest mistake was clearly not picking Darren Bent – the only player we had who knows how to get the best out of a beach ball.

"I'm like well good with floaty balls."

And so as we prepare ourselves for the new Premier League season, where chants of ‘You let your country down’ will ring around stadiums across the land and Rooney effigies will swing from lampposts until he redeems himself by single-handedly getting us to Euro 2012, here’s a look at some of the lighter moments of the World Cup.

Best Quote:
“I like women, I like women, I like women. I am going out with Veronica, she’s 31, she’s blonde, she’s very pretty!” Diego Maradona to a journalist inquiring about the man love going on between him and his Argentina team.

Next best quote:
“Goals are like ketchup. Sometimes they don’t come out but when they come, many come at once.” Cristiano Ronaldo had obviously been on the sauce.

Strangest story:
Replica World Cup made from cocaine seized in Colombia (police pursuing several lines of inquiry).

Best caption:
On the BBC: ‘Iniesta in space’ – next stop Mars.

Scariest hardman:
No, not Van Bommel or even Karate Kid De Jong, but Gabriel Heinze after his vicious assault on the TV camera.

Best observation:
Mexico coach Javier Aguirre: “It was very important to beat France – they are after all the vice world champions” (no wonder their concentration levels weren’t up to much).

Best pronunciation:
Jonathan Pearce making Mertesacker sound how Lawro would say motorcycle.

And finally….toughest job:
The North Korean TV editor who had to make the 7-0 reverse against Portugal look like a competitive match.

  3. Yes, well done Mr. X.

    Good to see the shackles removed.

    Excellent one about the police lines of inquiry. How would you know about stuff like that? You would think only people in the journalism business employed by a huge corporation would know about stuff like that!

  12. Didier Drogba's agent has revealed he is in talks with Manchester City over the Chelsea striker making a £20m move to Eastlands.

    And yet Milner is worth £25m??

    ReplyDelete
  13. Nice blog as always Robbo, you'll pass the compliments to the guest, be it CC, or is that you Phyl M?

    ReplyDelete
  14. According to the Guardian Liverpool are paying Cole 90k a week. Love to see them explain that to the bank manager.

    And yeah, Drogba for 20 mill makes no sense given he won the Golden Boot last season. Fuck knows why he'd want to move from a team that he's won plenty of silverware with though ...

    ReplyDelete
  15. At £20m If i were the Drog I'd feel insulted while Ballotelli, Milner, Torres are supposedly worth more. Forget Milner, i doubt he'd have played with a flu bout during the WC and yet the Drog played with a friggin broken arm for his country.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Balotelli and Drogba into City will that see Tevez throwing his toys out of the pram and saying nobody loves me before he teams up with Rafa and Mascherano at Inter

  36. while i'm on the subject of redundant sentence fillers, and speaking as a committed fan, robbo - the podcast is very funny, but, since you asked, theres a lot of hesitation, er, , ahs etc which bleeds out a little bit of the conviction and therefore some of the humour, in my opinion, but what the fuck do i know, im a fireman and we're well fick

    ReplyDelete
  37. blogs, ehn robbo asked for feedback he didn't mean negative feedback... you know what these artistic types are like... Its the same as whe your wife asks "what do you think of this outfit" she dont wanna hear its ok, excet your ankles look chubby and tits look small... they wanna here "yeah it looks great"...

  50. "1035: Manchester City have rubbished claims by Didier Drogba's agent that the club have been in contact about signing the Chelsea striker.

    Thierno Seydi suggested in a radio interview that Drogba could leave Stamford Bridge before the transfer deadline and said there had already been dialogue with City.

    But a City spokesperson said: "There has been absolutely no contact. We have not spoken to him and there is no foundation to this." (Press Association)"


    I can't belive a man with the scruples of didier drogba would have an agent who would so mercilessly try to up his clients contract... for shame!

    ReplyDelete

  53. As for the podcast Robbo, currently listening to it but have one very important question...

    Apparently THIS is Andy Smart's wife. Which begs the question 'What the fuck is he doing wasting time talking to you?'

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Andy Smart looks like a cross between James May and Charlie Brooker... if that is his mrs Gaz, well done to the lad, well above his weight! good show!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Ok Robbo, totally serious critique of the podcast...


    Not really sure what role Andy is filling. Or yourself for that matter. Is it just meant to be a chat between mates? Personally I'd much prefer it if say Andy was playing a radio presenter and had Robbo on as a guest. More of a straight man thing.

    Was that the way Robbo started out? I never heard it back in the day.

    Anyway Andy is too giggly, which is fine as you are making him laugh, but doesn't come across well on 'radio' in my opinion.

    If you're going for the whole '2 mates talking about sport' thing then it's ok. It's just missing a 'point' for me. Maybe it would be better if it was a table of mates in the pub with a few distinct characters?

    Anyway well done on getting 20 odd mins out of the most boring Open in history and the freaks in the Tour de Farce.

  56. Anyone know how many people are going into the head to head league?

  58. I'd like to do the whole Fantasy League stuff lads (especially as I have history with the prediction stuff, Liverpool out of the Top 4, remember that?) but it's a bit too reminiscent of gambling for me. And as someone who had a big problem with that before I'll give it a miss.

  111. i was tempted at the end of the WC to grade thebloggers on the beeb with DB -10 and PM -5 only cos he fucked off when Eng got beaten, and not been seen since, perhaps Auntie has kicked him either in the bollocks, or into the long grass

  119. Blog

    Good luck with Roberts, fighting the double demons of gambling and alcohol

    last chance at the Vale coralle

    ReplyDelete
  120. Tone, here's an interesting snippet....there was once an alcoholic bloke who quit drinking in AA. He had the bright idea of applying those same principles to his gambling addiction and founded GA (gamblers anonymous). He never had another bet but he died a hopeless drunk.

  121. cheers tone. a bet you a pint it doesnt pay off.

    the tendulkar book story

    ReplyDelete
  125. I am sure most of you would love this -

    When Sachin Tendulkar travelled to Pakistan to face one of the finest bowling attacks ever assembled in cricket,
    · Michael Schumacher was yet to race a F1 car
    · Lance Armstrong had never been to the Tour de France
    · Diego Maradona was still the captain of a world champion Argentina team
    · Pete Sampras had never won a Grand Slam.

    ReplyDelete
  126. So the blog is written by someone who shall not be named?

    Thats fine by me.

    Anyway, seems like there was a whole change of guards over at the beeb. Robbo and CC were the first ones out but learned today that Caroline Cheese is history too. McNulty's not been spotted as frequent as he used to flaunt about his Chiefiness.

    One question to all of them, just how shit is Manchester really that none of them can envisage living there?

    And that includes a middle-aged man from Middles-freakin-brough.

    ReplyDelete
  127. ss11 what has that got to do with anything?....

    ReplyDelete
  128. spitfire

    lmao what everyones been kicked off the beeb website?..McNulty is mostly on facebook..him and his flaming status updates....

    as for manchester...its shite. trust me im a student there..

    Robbo are u on Facebook?..

  129. mbp,

    Sachin's from India mate, thats their concept of time.

    for example, their history books say they became free from colonial rule when the grandma stopped breastfeeding uncle pintu.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Of course, they could have gained independence much earlier but bottled milk only went mainstream once uncle Pintu grew up and started importing the glass bottles from Bangladesh.

  135. Absolutely nothing MBP.

    Just posted if someone could make out some sense out of it. And ofcourse, as Spit said for us Indians, Sachin is and will always be one of the greatest sportsman of the world.

    ReplyDelete
  136. SS11 are you saying tendulkar is old so we should be even more revolted that he mixes his degenerating dna into his book?

    OR

    that its a very long time since pakistan had a decent bowling attack?

    i wouldnt know - sky stole cricket from me a long time ago so i hope cricket, sky and the poxy bbc spend an eternity in sport hell libberally smeared by tendulkars fetid dna

  138. Tone, I can't agree because then you'd know a small percentage of my team. The down side is that he gets so many yellows they're gonna start calling him Kevin Van Davies

    ReplyDelete
  139. I was not trying to make any point. I dont even know if what I typed is really factual.

    Although, its true Pakistan have lost their bowling edge. But they are still better at it than Indians.

    Sachin is definitely old now, but but why should one feel revolted?

  142. One more classic Sachinism -

    "Commit all you crimes when Sachin is batting, because GOD will not be watching you"


    Again doesnt make any sense to me, but just a general thought which elevates Sachin to being GOD himself!

  143. SS,

    seeing how this quote came from India, I would however still urge caution to any would be criminal.

    I think the apprehension in naming the writer as Chris Charles or not is because he is still an employee at some BBC. He may or may not have written the blog because his contract, that is I believe still running, does prohibit him in appearing at other media outlets without explicit prior consent from the current employer.


    I hope we refrain from making matters difficult than need be.

    Althoug, shephard's mush? I mean really?

  146. Well the one thing we can be sure of is that McNulty definitely did not write the blog!

    It was humerous, readable and didn't once mention how much he wanted to suck John Terry off.

    Manchester United are a far more superior club to Liverpool, steeped in History and tradition and will this season win our 19th league title.
