The 2010 Fifa World Cup ended recently and it appears, much like Germany in 2006, that post-world cup depression has temporarily set in. This depression is a trivial event, given the title owing to how it affects a nation once they no longer have anything to look forward to. The fanfare has passed, day to day life is returning and many people are wondering what next?
