Ever feel that life isn’t real until you’ve looked at the replay? Just me then. What I thought was a turgid and cynical 120 minutes was actually a football spectacle with goal-mouth action applenty. I also discovered that the Spanish were just as naughty as the Dutch, especially Iniesta, but are cuter about it. It’s been a long month and it will take a while for the droning to leave my head. Lawrenson’s suicidal donkey impression is going to take industrial chemicals to shift. Alan Green? Cheer up or f*ck off. Tell us what’s going on not what you think about the state of the nation. So, sitting back on my HD sofa with surroundsnacks, I got to wondering [and not to the fridge this time], what have we learned?

  • Editing can make even a strange and ugly match look exciting. BBC
  • Van Bommel has polariods of Blatter and Nazi Dwarfs
  • Howard Webb is colour blind
  • Cats are dummer than molluscs
  • but niether are as dumb as James Cordon
  • Holland are the ‘losingest’ team in World Cup history [see below]
  • but they have the best WAGS
  • Wayne Rooney – put the shirt on son…please
  • World Cup Daily from the Guardian is the funniest, smartest take on the whole fiasco/fiesta
