Meanwhile, in Italy…

In Italy, of course, the situation is quite different. If we can sympathise with Zidane, why not also sympathise with the feelings of a triumphant Italy? If yesterday we were all French, today we are all Italian. Parades in Rome, military fly-bys in the green, red and white of the Italian flag, speeches lauding them as heroes and saviours. Certainly, they have every reason to be happy. They won the Word Cup. Whatever anyone says, They are the Champions. For Italy, the grapes taste sweet.

    That\’s still to come. The comment on the Italain match-fixing scandal that is! This piece was in a sense about the \’poetic justice\’ the Italians got aftewr suffering Zidan\’s foul, which I will very soon examine in much detail. Yes, I am indeed riding the world Cup Bandwagon, but it\’s not totally over yet, not  until the fat lady sings. I will refer your personal nomination to the Perfect Futures advisory committee to see if indeed you have a case for the award.

    well i can\’t believe that \’gideons commentary\’ has not yet reported on the latest scandal in Italy regarding the demotion, points deductions, euro bans etc of 4 of Italys biggest clubs. Many people thought that \’perfect futures\’ had its finger on the pulse of what is happening in the football world or have \’perfect futures\’ jumped off the football bandwagon now the world cup is over?!!
    still waiting for my perfect futures award! when i collect it?
