World Cup Reflections #371

I can’t help thinking that if Nigel de Jong’s flying death kick had only been in his repertoire, Raoul Moate might still be with us today.

    Leave Raoul Moate alone. It isn’t raoulmoately funny.

  2. Eoin Says:

    @ Jonathan – Urgh, that’s the oldest of all Raoul Moate jokes.

  3. Jax Says:

    I’d say the oldest of all Raul Moate jokes is whatever the other kids in school said to tease him and turn him into a psychologically damaged adult. Probably something like Raul, Raul the red haired fool…

    You used to be a bully didn’t you?

  5. Ed Says:

    I wonder how far Raoul Moate would have gotten on his rampage if he’d used flying kicks instead of bullets. Imagine him running around England kicking people it would have been so much funnier.

  6. Eoin Says:

    @ Jax – yet another reason for me to identify with Raoul Moate

    @ Ed – we’ll never know

  7. Conal Says:

    Italy 1990. England 1996. Rothbury 2010. Whenever Gazza’s involved in a shootout it all ends in tears.

  8. Eoin Says:

    Gascoigne actually scored the winning penalty in the England-Spain shootout in 1996… but that’s just being pedantic, isn’t it?

  9. Conal Says:

    to be honest its such a bad joke i’m glad you followed it with a decent display of wankerishness, good job Buts!

  10. Eoin Says:

    My favourite Raoul Moate joke was:

    Manchester City have confirmed an offer of £45m for Raoul Moate. They don’t know who he is but they’ve heard everyone is after him.

    (Worked better when he was alive…)
