Would they cancel the World Cup?

Some dodgy German politician has come out the last few days and suggested they may cancel the World Cup if 'bird flu' spread further inland.

Apparently 9 people have died as a result of 'bird flu' since 2002 and mostly in the Far East and Asia.

I'm all for taking precatutions especially when it concerns my life but if any German politician wants to try and cancel this even thet're going to have more to deal with than a few irate football fans who have been saving up for years. They'll have me to deal with.

It wont happen and it's just a German politician taking an opportunity to get his or her name in the paper. I'm sure the Germans have a word for that!

French fool Cantona picks England over France for World Cup in Germany

Eric Cantona supports England for World Cup in Germany 2006

You either love French poet and one time footballer Eric Cantona or you don't. I suspect if your name is Michael Simmons or you live in Liverpool you don't like him, but I'm actually a little surprised to admit I think he's an okay bloke.

I literally bumped into Eric at a Kronenberg beach five a side event in Hyde Park a few years ago. All the beer was free and when I met him I'd had a few inside me so don't remember much but do remember thinking he was okay for a Frenchman.

Well, he's done something special today and confirmed he'll be supporting England during the World Cup in Germany later this year. The ex Manchester United player had this to say "I will not be supporting France — it will be England but I will be happy if Brazil or Italy win."

You can't respect any man that turns his back on his country but for supporting England he gets a nod of appreciation from me.

England World Cup 2006 Song

A song has been produced for the England World Cup squad called 'Coming Back for Moore' and has been released on the internet for a fraction of the cost you'd have to pay in the shops - you even get the lyrics and a free 30 second download before buying.

A contribution of all the money raised will go to Cancer Research UK and the Bobby Moore fund. If you can think of a better reason not to go buy this you can tie me up to a fountain in Trafalgar Square, call me Diego and pelt me rotten veg.

By it now and don't make me hunt you down. Come on England!
