Now you can see non-English news...

Soccer, that wonderful safe space for the clueless


You used to be able to talk wonderful nonsense about the "Flat Four" in the pub. Now Fifa has taken the ease of chatter away from us.

Just blathering about the double six without a clue?

Rather difficult at this World Cup

When will it be nice again?

Mysteriously, when I graduated from high school, I saw this man on TV.

He looked like a teacher you can trust.

Jürgen Klopp.

It was the 2006 World Cup and it was nice and warm and this cheerful expert drew circles and arrows on the field.


Into the interface!

Stand high, stand low.

Arne Friedrich would like to play a short game, Bernd Schneider offers a long game.

Now we stop again, stop!

I didn't understand anything, I loved it.

Football is a safe space for the clueless.

You can say sentences like "The double six has to be moved much better" in the pub with impunity, or introduce words like "diagonal pass" into the discussion, someone always nods.

This sport is inclusive.

Come in, talk nonsense, you're one of us.

The Fifa criminals have taken away the ease of babble.

It is now, of necessity, about the big characters.

When will it be like before?

When you dissect the 4-4-2, the »flat four«, tired and already a bit mumbling, and someone nods.

It used to be nice.
