The Seven Deadly Sins ...

My only regret with this article - that I couldn't persuade their German Marketing Director to keep-his-mits off the final edit. He totally screwed-up the part about the "hospital pass" - believing the term needed explaining - which of course it didn't for the UK audience. But in his defence – I suppose German football has fewer bad passes! No doubt they’d need it spelling out ad nauseam!
