Comme il faut.

Have you ever settled down in front of the match supporting one side and ended up supporting the other side with a passion?

Last night I felt that I should be supporting Spain as we were in Spain and watching Spanish telly (laSexta - channel 6).

Although being in Catalunya is a bit like being in Wales or Scotland. The locals think that Barcelona (not Spain) is their national team.

So I didn´t feel too disloyal when the gut feeling kicked in. Those French guys just have that ´je ne sais quoi´ .... the ´comme il faut´. They are footballing gods.

The Spanish are lads with daft haircuts and alice bands.

It was like Will Young v Bowie or Westlife v Oasis.

The French players are real men with complex facial expressions. With a Gallic shrug and a sexy pout they won me over. OK, Ribery wouldn´t win a beauty competition but he can sure play footy.

And Thierry .... he still has the Vavavoom for moi!

I still don´t get what Linda Evangelista saw in Barthez

But ´Chacun a son gout´

I started off supporting Spain, too. But France are just better to watch. Hopefully another 3 matches of Zidane.

Not so sure about the Oasis comparison, though. France have been good for a hell of a lot longer.

Ms.Maiden-Name asked our youngest (13) about her top ten most fancied celebs.
She claimed couldn't think of anyone. A long list was rejected until we got to Thiery.
"Durh! Of course him!" she replied. We never did learn the other 9.

Of course I meant 2 more matches.

England will beat France in the semi and then Germany in the final.

Cue squeaky Frank Skinner voice: "We still believe..."

zbwzo - Zinedine Bloody Wonderful Zidane Original

Geoff: I didn't know you wrote Science fiction.
If France beat Brazil - I'm sure my gut will go with them against England.
They'll probably confiscate my passport when I get back to Manchester airport.

Nic: Hey that young woman has excellent taste. She'll go far.

mj: Kaz aime mucho beaucoup le beau Thierry. Il est formidable
Vive la difference, Comme çi comme ça … n'est-ce pas? …Gerard Depardieu. C'est tout

Stitchwort: Yeah - Vive le cycling shorts. And we’ll be very near to France.
So we come to Spain and spend all the time watching SPORT on the telly and drinking the vino.
Sounds fine to me.

Gert: - No problems with the ‘French’. It’s the ‘Arsenal’ that worries me!
Thanks for the footie link..
