Absolutely shameful and disappointing! The Tri after playing an amazing game, orderly and with great precision against les Blues, and which caused the sub-champions’ meltdown, seems to have vanished away with Uruguay.

Salut a tous – this is a converstion I had this morning

Yes I watched the match . I was really disappointed, why didn’t Malouda play ? Surely Thierry Henry should be in the team ? We all expected a better performance. But maybe they’ll find some inspiration from somewhere. They all criticise the coach but it’s the eleven players on the pitch who have to take responsibility….

The words could come from a football pundit, a sports analyst, a journalist following the World Cup or even a player being paid to give pearls of wisdom on every kick of the next four weeks in South Africa.

Infact the wise words aboove on the Uruguay – France non-event came from the young lady who sold me my morning croissants at the boulangerie (bakery) near my home.
