Hopefully the North Koreans will win.



Would be the all time biggest shock in world of sport.


In all seriousness, Spain have to be favourites {Xavi, Iniesta, Fabregas if he is fit, Villa, Torres, Casillas, Puyol........list goes on}


I hope either Argentina or Italy win

To be honest, I am very proud of the US. I think we have a shot of being in the top of our group and going quite far in the elimination stage. My second favorite is England. I did have high hopes for the Ausi, but after their last performance…

Euro 2008- France vs. Italy - Domeneach has to play Abidal at centerback because he left Mexes out of the squad because Mexes is a Scorpio. When Abidal is sent off, he has to bring on Boumsang. Also, brings on Nasri after injury only to sub him off after red card

Euro 2008 - France are knocked out, having only scored 1 goal

Post Euro 2008 - Domeneach also proposes to his girlfriend on tv after getting knocked out, confirming stereotypes about the french being the best lovers

Post Euro 2008 - FFF doesn't fire him. On a completely unrelated note, Domeneach runs academies that the FFF depend on

WC 2010 qualifiers - The team is very cliqueish. Players from the Antilles, the muslims, those who play in France, the old timers, and then those who play for bourdeax. No one really likes each other, and the bourdeax contigent and older players hate each other

WC 2010 qualifiers - Can't beat Romania (again), can only beat Lithuania 1-0 at both times of asking, can only beat the Faoroe Islands 1-0. Have to go to a playoff

WC 2010 Preperations - Gourcoff pulls an Ireland to get time off

WC 2010 France-Mexico - The older players ask Domeneach to change to a 4-4-2 and to bring back Henry for the Mexico game. Domenech agrees, then finds out that Zidane was behind it.

WC 2010 France-Mexico - Anelka and Domeneach have at it at half time
