    Is their a english word for "fremdschämen"?
    It's not a German word I've come across before Stefan but, of course, German being German it can often be deduced.

    If I understand the German context correctly, I can't think of a particular word or phrase that we would use in English although we would probably say something like "you / he's / she's making me cringe (with embarassment etc.)" or simply "you're a disgrace" to the person in question.

    My daughter's peergroup (18+) do have the word "cringeworthy" but that's more colloquial.

    Does that make sense?

        • As a dutchman I would be a liitle but very little disappointed if Germany wins the worldcup if they met the Dutch in the final.Maybe its just a matter of thinking its only a game and nothing more than a game and sure not a matter of life and death.And I can be very fanatic with a son of 14 playing soccer too but always in mind its just a simple game and nothing more.
          In my opinion Germany had lets us see the most attractive soccer during this worldcup, very much more than renomated teams as Brasil and Argentina. Maybe Holland has to play its best game yet, we shall see.
          Only thing I know ,leaving for the Caribbean this weekend, if we get a final between Uruguay and Spain I'll just be relaxing on the beach during the final. None of the two are teams I really liked seeing playing during last weeks.

            Well, history seems to suggest that Germany does win the Cup every (roughly) twenty years, so you may have a point...

              Well Curtis, you DO have a well known point there, but I don't think that's the thrust of the original "argument"

                Oh come on ! Nobody said that we will rule the world.

                You never ever suffered with our team infront of the TV watching them loosing a final , did ya ??? But i did , a lot of times !!!!!

                U can travel to Holland and Spain , did i say something against it ????

                U talk about soccer war , u didn`t understand anything about the game....

                I played football ( ! not soccer ) all my life. I love this sport , can not explain why..........

                Don`t bore me with words like war or your trips to Holland or Spain........

                2 years ago the Spanish side won the Euro 2008 because they deserved to win ( 1-0 against us )
