It's All Fine...Apart from the Stuff That's Broken

Despite Franz Beckenbauer's protestations in New York last month that "The World Cup can start tomorrow. We're ready..." , it does appear that not all is well with the preparations of this year's Finals.

Reports and rumours have been circulating for a while of problems in bringing some of the stadiums up to scratch and today it is clear that Frankfurt's World Cup stadium is, um, falling apart already. Two parts of a support column have cracked and the roof leaks. Apart from that, it is fine, though. And anyway, the contractors are promising to get it fixed, just as soon as they figure out how.

Ah, vorsprung durch technik, indeed.
