    On a more serious note, I have never had any respect for Blatter, and am suspicious of his motives.

    Like the article says, reverting to 90 minutes increases the chance of a team playing defensively, because there is substantially less chance of conceding a goal within 90 mins.

    The root problem is that now there is so much money involved, that teams cannot contemplate taking any chances. If a team loses through a penalty shoot-out or toss of a coin (same thing, basically), then nobody gets blamed.

    One solution is that only the winning team gets points. If it is a draw, the team with less fowls committed wins.

    Whatever the solution, it has to favour the atttacking team.

    England has no chance now against the Germans if it's straight to penalties
