This World Cup has nothing on 1954, say football hipsters

FOOTBALL hipsters have insisted the current World Cup is ‘vastly inferior’ to Switzerland ’’54.

Wayne Hayes, a self-described ‘enganche’ enthusiast, said: “”Anyone who compares any of these matches to the ‘Miracle of Berne’ is frankly delusional.

“1954 had everything: a goal-per-game average of 5.38, the Magical Magyars, and a cutting-edge, Bauhaus-meets-Mondrian logo.””

Hayes added that the current playing arenas were a pale imitation of 1954’s Wankdorf Stadium, and that ‘Lionel Messi et al were no’t fit to lace Sandor Kocsis’ boots’.

Football blogger Joseph Turner disagreed with his analysis, however, saying that while Switzerland ‘’54 may have had loads of goals, goals were overrated.

Turner said: “”The World Cup had gone mainstream by the fifties. I argue on my site that Italia ’34 was Italia ’90 without the branding.”

Are your friends with problems actually just idiots?

DO your friends with problems deserve your sympathy, or are they just idiots who won’t stop doing stupid things? Take our test and find out.

Your friend’s landlord won’t do up their dilapidated flat. What advice do you give?

A. Read up on your rights and, if you don’t get anywhere, move.
B. Perhaps stop doing ‘street art murals’ on the walls, initiating petty neighbour feuds about recycling boxes and allowing your French Bulldog to eat the furniture.

A female friend keeps dating unsuitable men. When you suggest getting to know people properly for once, what does she do?

A. Takes a more relaxed attitude to dates and meets a great guy.
B. Hops into bed with the first gym-obsessed weirdo she meets then lends him £6,000 to follow his dream of becoming a male stripper.

A male friend complains all the women he dates are “mad”. When you suggest not just going by their photo, what does he do?

A. Looks for someone with similar interests.
B. Refuses to go on dates with anyone who is not blonde with large breasts, despite obvious warning signs such as their membership of the Croydon Aryan League.

Mostly As. Your friends clearly value your good advice. Keep helping them not do things like buying massive snakes off Gumtree.

Mostly Bs. Your friends are serial idiots so stop wasting your time helping them. They’ll have to learn for themselves that most partners don’t think dogging would be ‘interesting’.
