All on board for lazy stereotypes and criticism of the ending


- Advertisment -

BUBBLE burst?

Between England’s inevitable Wembley showdown against Germany on Sunday and today’s long-awaited outcome of Wagat Christie’s libel trial, these are serene days for women in football. But in a week in which the legacy – or lack of it – of the most jingoistic, smug opening ceremony in Olympic history has been in the news spotlight, it seems more important than ever before that the English women’s game continues to bring hay. while the sun shines on their sport.

You see, various cousins ​​of the Five cheer for the plucky English lionesses ahead of the Wembley final, with a few notable exceptions. By a handful, we mean everyone except our English cousin Repressed Morris Dancing Fives, whose offer of additional tickets to the final for various relatives was turned down.

Much to his chagrin, Theme Pub O’Fiver’s stereotypical Irish cousin brandishing a stick; the bagpipe-playing “See you Jimmy” Scottish cousin Shortbred MacPhyver and the valley-dwelling, cheese-on-toast Welsh cousin Llanfairpullgwingillgogerichvirndrobulllantisiliogogogoh Five seemed surprisingly unenthusiastic about accompanying him to the game, and when asked why they embarrassedly admitted they had a better offer. Instead of punching thick lines and sticking firecrackers where the sun doesn’t shine, they will instead make noise at the far end of the Wembley with their ruthlessly efficient German cousin Vorsprung durch Tin und Lederhosen Fumfen.

At the other end of a five filled with lazy stereotypes, Franz Beckenbauer did his part to destroy the Lionesses narrative by offering his compatriots victory in the most banal style imaginable. The German legend expects Alexandra Popp and her pals to shed light on any supposed English Wembley parade by not only winning the final, but doing so on penalties.

“A draw after 90 minutes,” he predicted. “In extra time, both teams score one goal each. Penalty. And our women benefit from this, because they are physically and mentally better.” While his comments would probably look good on the England dressing room wall, the ongoing concern of Repressed Morris Dancing Fiver and other English fans is that history suggests he is probably right.

“I may be living in a bien-pensant bourgeois bubble, but I haven’t really come across any sarcasm or sarcasm about the euro. So the tone of the recent Fivers (and the really big coverage) seems weird and overly defensive, and anyway people who need to be chastised won’t read, will they? Can we just enjoy it without feeling the need to respond to idiots every time we talk about it?” — Nick Wiltshere.

“You claimed that England took advantage of the early advantage by choosing a white uniform over the German green (yesterday’s Fiver). May the memory of Günther Netzer not be shaken. As a schoolboy, I remember how 50 years ago he commandeered the midfield of England in his green shirt. ”- Paul Jennison.

“Jens Lehmann took a chainsaw to his neighbor’s house? (yesterday’s five). Relax friend. Could be much worse— Mike Wilner.

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp has shown he understands how football works, as he said he wouldn’t wallow in poverty after losing the Big Cup and the Premier League last season. “This is a sport and we accept the rules,” he blabbed. “After 38 days of play, one point is enough, and one more goal is enough in the game.”
