Inspirational Sven


Just getting over a nasty dose of flu - missed the Leeds game as a result - felt in need of a lift. What better than the crizzy present CD which offered " A personal selection of inspirational music" chosen by Sven. 3 boxed CD's - the box having a dark brown.....ominously, almost black cover! - of classical choices.

Hmm... didn't have to listen for very long to realise that this was hardly going to lift my spirits . Some tracks pleasant enough, but too many others positively dour and funereal.

Got me thinking about the recent world cup....we didn't do as well as we should have, and if Sven considered much of this lot inspirational then its not to difficult to see that he might have been wider of the mark on matters football than some of us realised at the time.

He identifies his favorite inspirational piece as Verdi's "Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves". (Tongue very much in cheek....) Was it played in the England dressing room before the players came out to face Portugal perhaps?
