The ball is round



I'm sure that the friendly game between the football teams of Germany and the Emirates will be shown on the giant screen of Café Schwabing, my habitual dinner locale.


I wonder if I shall be obliged, as the only Sandlander among the regular clientèle, to explain that it is perfectly normal for the thousands of seats at the splendid Maktoum Stadium to be ninety percent unoccupied?

As for the quality of the football we can expect... Germany will, I fear, disappoint. Shall I dare to cry "Yalla, Emirates"?
