So here I am, wondering what a cheated disappointed fan might still have to say. Nothing at all. Hope to see some real football during the world cup? I should be more than eager, being one of the lucky ones to plan to actually watch a match in Kaiserslautern on the 26th June. Yet, the feeling is that football - and probably most sports - on a professional level is one big mess. World cup and all included. Fan talk is there no more. The much loved sfotto' on Moggi and co. has actually been revealed as true!
This is why I insist, today more than ever, that the real game is just round the corner, not on tv in midweek. It is in grassroots football, the one kids play at school, the one you play with work colleagues where the heart is often way more willing than your physique allows! It's amateur teams battling out on sunday mornings where the best part is having a beer with the opponent at the end.
That's were the game resides. That is what leads to an acute form of futbolite.
