France's unlucky pied de lapin...

I was feeling sorry for France, their football team has had a terrible world cup, bad performances, internal wrangles and players sent home in disgrace, however, I think I may have found the root of their problems. Looking at this story recently about their manager Raymond Domenech, we learn that he's a big fan of astrology, to the extent that he allows this childish woo woo to influence his team selection an admission he made in the build up to the competition, he's quoted as saying,

"All parameters have to be considered and I have added one by saying there is astrology involved,"

Robert Pires (a French player) who also played for Arsenal, being a Scorpio, was viewed with great suspicion by his manager and was subsequently left out and apparently Scorpios were not the only casualties of such a bizarre policy with Domenech making public his mistrust in Leo's also.

"When I have got a Leo in defence, I've always got my gun ready as I know he's going to want to show off at one moment or another and cost us."

There I was thinking that France was a bastion of rationality and here is the manager of the national football team using "magic" to pick the team, what an idiot, mind you, a typical Aquarius.

Strange - I'd have pegged him as a Taurus, not that I believe in this mumbo-jumbo - well, not when Venus is aligned with Cancer.

CB, astrology is all made up junk designed to extract cash from the gullible; the relative positions of objects light years away has no impact on Earthly events at all (so long as you cross your fingers behind your back)..
