Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I think people here at ET are simply being defensive: this is not an "I hate soccer" diary but most here have chosen to respond as if it is. Soccer's goal drought has long been recognized except here as a growing concern, and now, with goals down 30% from 2006, it presumably will be recognized as more of a problem.

I didn't question football's worldwide popularity, but sometimes I feel here like I'm talking to General Motors executives circa 1973. Could we be proactive, and maybe look into the future a little? If scoring declines another 30% next World Cup, then will the "don't change a thing" crowd begin to stir?
