This World Cup has been quite interesting in the amount of publicity it has generated off the pitch, rather than on it. Going by the adage ‘No publicity is bad publicity’, FIFA and Sepp will be grinning from ear to ear at this event which has now truly attained the status of a global event (unlike the Americans who call their 16-team leagues the ‘World Series’). Of course, now and then they’ll have to make noises about making better refereeing decisions while still going ahead and appointing Howard Webb as the referee for the finals – a decision which certainly won’t go down well with our resident Scouser. Overall though the ‘FIFA World Cup’, as it has been branded everywhere, has become a self-feeding propaganda machine that can run on itself now. We thought we had already caught the craziest, wackiest types among those in our post here, but clearly we missed out the big newsmakers! So for those of you who have been living under a rock, here they are, in descending order of shock value.

Larissa and her... um... friends.

Larissa Riquelme – If you did read the crazy, wacky post we referred to above, you would’ve seen how we thought Dallys Ferreira was the best thing to happen to South American football this World Cup. (more…)

It’s a room that gives birth to conflicts in your mind. As soon as you enter the chamber and see the garishly purple walls, the crudely drawn stick figures on those walls, balloon shaped and magic wand shaped cut-outs, you immediately think: Ten year olds playroom. But that’s when the conflict starts. That’s when you start to feel an overwhelming aura surround you. That’s when you see the lewd postures that the stick figures have been drawn in. That’s when you see that the balloon and magic wand cut-outs are actually…well. And that’s when, in a flash of inspiration, it strikes you: FIFA headquarters. (more…)

Ducky’s Note: Ok, there was an article here, but we’ve decided it wasn’t that funny or cool, so we’re taking it down. We would like to reiterate though, for those of you who have read it, that it was completely 100% fiction and what turned out to be a slightly uncool attempt at a joke.  As an aside, this video is still pretty funny though, so there you go!

Also, find our first post in this series, and a truly funny one here.

Ducky’s Note about the column: As football followers, we all have our fair share of other sites where we read and discuss football. We have also been subjected to some very inane ‘comments’ from ‘experts’ on quite a few of them. Our new column, ‘BFZ Times’ hopes to address this situation by expressing what we feel about all their ‘rumors’ and ‘transfer gossip’ and such. We must acknowledge right here our inspiration – some of the leading lights of football media such as a newspaper whose name shines brightly in summer, and a site which has football ‘all days of the year’ as its name. Also, massive apologies about the clearly attention-baiting headline. As I said, we’ve been truly inspired.

Ducky’s Note about the author: To help us in this noble endevour, BFZ presents its still-latest contributor (it seems to be the season for them doesn’t it?). Arun has been a Liverpool fan for 10 years now, and is very pained with the current state of the club (which fan isn’t?). Lately though he has accepted the ‘if you can’t beat them, join them’ philosophy (as seen by the post) and enjoys laughing about the sorry state of his club. And before all of you attack him for being so disloyal, he IS still going to stick by them through seasons to come. No matter who their manager is.

Fucks to be a manager

In a move which is bound to send waves of laughter in Manchester and the blue half of Merseyside amongst other places, Liverpool look set to appoint former Porto and Benfica star, Argelico Fucks as their new manager. (more…)

The Red Mist Descends

This is a f***ing disgrace.

The 30M Pound question

I’ve seen schoolboys play with more passion and desire. I’ve seen 12 year olds make more intelligent runs when presented with acres of space behind a Blackburn defence that’s best only at contact sports. A team which was supposed to respond to three games of lackluster presence and uncharacteristic disjointedness came up with a show which, if I had traveled to watch them, would’ve made me ask for my money back.

What happened to the Manc?

For those of you who’ve been wondering that…

Saturday-induced depression. Depression-induced psychotropics. Psychotropics-induced dehydration. Dehydration-induced Fever.

Wednesday night is all I have to look forward to for the season now.

Lighter’s Note: This post has nothing to do with Ashley Cole’s private life. Not unless he has been involved with someone from the Bermudan women’s cricket team. However, given recent news reports, this remains a distinct possibility.

Ladies (and the obligatory gentlemen), we at BigFourZa are big fans of women’s sport in general and women in particular. The classes we’ve missed to watch women’s beach volleyball and figure skating alone would constitute an entire semester at most centers of learning. And so, we spent a long time contemplating what the least offensive way of writing this post would be. However, since we were unable to stop giggling like school girls, without any further ado, we bring you this.
