Hi, I'm Nick Davies. I've just finished a Philosophy degree at the university of East Anglia, Norwich, and am back in London for the time being. I am a massive football fan (soccer) and I follow Birmingham City FC. I follow the Premiership and the Bundesliga though I like to keep an eye on La Liga. Internationally its England and Germany due to family ties.
please give a look
not lucky because of desicions,i had just felt pre tournament germany would find it dificult to make out that group as winners.to me it was the toughest group and the way the aussies didnt show up in the 1st game made germany path to the round of 16 a lil easier.thats what i meant,besides klose`s red card cant compare to cahill`s
you answered your own question on why i considered england+argentina as non tests, because they lacked that tactical awareness+planning suited for the world cup knock out rounds,i say germany wasnt tested.you might say i bias,but germany didnt look so dangerous,atleast in the 1st halfs vs serbia+ghana,teams that employed a 5man midfield....from the 1st game paraguay played in this world cup i was worried about them upseting spain if they met.germany jus didnt show me enough,lucky to come out the group of death in my view,but that big win over the aussies made their progression possible.
why would i say i tried to be as unbias as possible,if i really didnt? it makes no sense for me to write and admit something if i dont believe it to be true,atleast some part of me....thats jus me.enjoyed reading your articles,it your views and i just try to put my spin on it
hey nick- my folks are argentina fans- and I support germany for the last eight years - weird huh? i am already getting a battering at home- i will be happy as long as germany don't get a battering on saturday....:)
