When failure is an option...

History will show that on July 3, 2008 the French Soccer Federation decided that they were more than happy with keeping their national soccer team in a state of disarray. The Federation voted 18-1 in favor of keeping the current French soccer manager, Raymond Domenech, and as a result have ensured that no creativity or innovation will ever dare to invade the French soccer team. I suppose there is nothing wrong in this decision. Not every nation should aspire to greatness in soccer. Nowhere does it mandate that any country should try to play beautiful and flowing football, even if that nation has some of the best soccer players on the planet.

C'est la vie.

Once upon a time there used to be a really good soccer team from France.....and I mean once upon a long long time ago…..

notes: my catalog of Mr. Raymond's failures are painfully listed in the Euro 2008 Anatomy of failure section and in a note about his marriage proposal.
