Are We Too Savvy For Letchkov Moments?

Do we know too much about football to truly enjoy a World Cup? Fans now face ridicule for a lack of knowledge in an age when we're drowning in information...

This and recent international tournaments have definitely changed thanks to the amount of information. Now its about which supposed super stars (like Neymar and Cavani) are going to tank, as often its the first chance we'll have had to see them in action, rather than who comes out of left-field. Though we should take a minute to thank Arsenal for keeping Campbell under a bushel.

My answer is to drag any football hipster you can find to the wide river of mainstream football and drown them in it.

Really enjoyed the article. I was thinking though (as a Bulgarian) Trifon was playing for Rapid Vienna at that time. After a quick check on Wikipedia, I saw Daniel was right :)

Nah, the Netherlands Spain game was a revelation. It reminded me of the 5-0 Barca spanking of Real. A thoroughly enjoyable outstanding performance. And as a Manchester United fan who has access to a season ticket and once, before moving away, went regularly, I've never really enjoyed watching football on the TV that much (especially last season). I mean, it does a job, but I do love the idiosyncrasies of a football match. For instance being able to focus on a single player for a bit, especially when they're having a particularly awful game. The exception is the world cup. Especially this one. It's been great. I'm having a great time.

@harry hotspur Me neither. And neither has Patrick Vieira apparently who was lightly mocked for his ignorance by Fabio Cannavaro when they were discussing about the Italian players that would walk into England's first team.

If everyone knows too much about football then why were all blown away by the scale of Holland's victory against Spain?
