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 1954s Wankdorf Stadium, and that ‘Lionel Messi et al were not 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 BielsaIsGod.com that Italia 34 was Italia 90 without the branding.”
