Football headlines…..Latest!

I read that Brazil is hoping to host the 2014 World Cup, and they have just submitted an ‘Intent’ letter to FIFA today.

 If they really want to do things correctly, why not add a ‘post-script’ to the letter, saying something along the lines of “South Africa seems to be losing the plot, give us the word and we’ll do the 2010 tournament just to show we’re on the ball!” 

They’re everywhere, I tell you!


Police are urging visitors to the city centre to be especially vigilant for a new gang operating a slick routine that is aimed at stealing from unwary persons. They say that the gang usually comprises four members.  While the three younger ones, all appearing to be cute and innocent, divert their “mark” (or intended target) with a show of friendliness and fun, the fourth the eldest of this gang of criminals – sneaks in from behind the person’s back to expertly rifle undetected through their pockets and bags for any valuables being carried. The attached picture taken from CCTV operating in the inner city shows the gang in operation.
