Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Europe is ahead. Why do you want to call it a draw? We kicked their ass. Unquestionably. Despite the naysayers. Europe is not doomed.

It will be really weird if what I suspect is possible for China plays out. 12 gigs there I've heard. But no one knows. And stats there are notoriously "weird." Still, means China is in another world measured by capacity growth.

What does such strong growth mean with a capacity factor under 20%?

Still, one MUST respect the potential investment available there even if it willbe some time before standard performance is

In the world of sport you are only as good as your last game.  The fact that you may have won the league 10 years in a row is irrelevant if you lost (or in this case drew) the last one.  However I will give the last word to DoDo since the EU was marginally ahead.  But losing to China?  Shit!  They weren't even in the first division last year.

I suppose its nearly time for me to do my annual Rugby Diary on the 6 Nations detailing how Ireland is going to kick the French Ass for cheating us out of the world cup and Gouging Stephen Ferris' eyes twice in one match.  What is it about the French not being able to keep their hands to themselves and their fingers out of other people's eyes?
