World Cup Footer


I want England to win, of course. But my longstanding policy every four years is only to watch matches after the quarter-finals, or matches where England is against Germany or and France. Especially Germany. Couldn't give a toss about the rest. So let Frankie Foer be your guide. He cares, he scores, he gives you the impact on globalization and CO2 emissions. (Look, it's about as butch as TNR can be. For the longest time in the back of the book, there was a very strict policy on reviewing sports books. As Leon once elegantly explained:  "if there's a ball in it, we won't run it." But Leon doesn't run the blogs. He just hates them.)
