Another Tragic Christmas
And the stockings of the footballing great and good need to be filled:
For Pim Verbeek: a standover man to deal with recalcitrant Euro club coaches.
For Frank Lowy: a small booklet entitled How not to Alienate Football Fans: a brief guide.
For John Kosmina: a fullback.
For Aurelio Vidmar: injury insurance.
For Fabio Capello: a very, very good interpreter.
For Raymond Domenech: a book of choice Italian jokes.
For Italian football in general: a year without a football-related death.
For the Trinidadian national team: the money they're owed by Jack Warner.
For Sepp Blatter: a dartboard with Jerome Valcke's face emblazoned across it.
Merry Xmas to all from TFT.
