There is a typographical error on one of the reference links, but I'm not sure how to change it. It currently reads:

"^ Astrology and affect on selection,"

Vandalism 11/19/09[edit]

As linked to in this article (, Mr. Dromenech's page has under gone vandalism as a part of the fallout from Thierry Henry's handball in the World Cup Qualifiers. This page should probably be locked. -- (talk) 20:57, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

Keeps on getting vandalized... -- (talk) 16:18, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Oh hi, whats going on here, you guys?

Goodbye, sweet prince[edit]

This isn't hard[edit]

If you're going to restrict pages, at least check them to make sure you're not leaving vandalism on there. I spent ages yesterday countering vandalism, and now I'm unable to remove a quite blatant piece of it because someone has lazily decided to lock the page rather than deal with the vandals themselves. The piece in question reads as follows, I have even capitalised the offending word seeing as apparently nobody noticed it first time around:

"Following their draw with Uruguay, Zidane CORRECTLY described Domenech as having lost control of the team"

This is what happens when you take the elitist attitude that people without accounts are somehow beneath those who do have them. What's the point in even having this as an 'everyone can edit' site if you're going to shut up shop every time a few idiots - whose IP addresses are quite clearly listed and could be dealt with accordingly, by the way - decide to have a bit of 'fun' at someone's expense? It's ridiculous. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:47, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Got that one, thanks. I agree the current Wikipedia approach to articles like this is not perfect - this is why we should look forward to the new WP:Pending changes system being rolled out. It will allow us to put articles like this in a state where every edit will be monitored to prevent vandalism, but they won't be locked down completely. (Thanks for your work reverting vandalism on this one, by the way.) Robofish (talk) 15:30, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

There's a lot of talk of raised eyebrows in this article. Perhaps an alternative idiom could be employed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:00, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

There's a discrepancy between the information box at the top of the page, which indicates that he played 13 matches for Mulhouse, and the Career and Career Statistics sections at the end, which indicate that he retired from playing before joining Mulhouse, and does not refer to any playing statistics at Mulhouse. I'm not sure which is correct, but something needs to be changed. (talk) 15:18, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Edit request from Kylegraybeach, 22 June 2010[edit]


The last edit changed Raymond Domenech from current to former coach of France's National Team. He has not been fired as of yet, this entry is erroneous.

 Done From what I can tell from Google News, dated in the last few days, he isn't retired yet. CTJF83 pride 18:15, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

The sentence, "Domenech infamously bowed out by refusing to shake the hand of his opposite number in the final game, Carlos Alberto Parreira."raises two concerns. First, "infamously" seems pejorative not neutral and secondly, the phrase "opposite number" makes Domenech sound like a player. Do coaches have numbers? A better word might be "counterpart."

I agree Lgrave (talk) 15:21, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
"Opposite number" is an idiom meaning "counterpart". It has nothing to do with mathematical numbers. (talk) 18:01, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

I agree that you're both cretins. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:10, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
