WiseIsWise : No wonder the Germans lost, they're playing Karl Marx on the right wing.

Croyles : "Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside."

rogerpenna : Why is Mars playing on the RIGHT wing? Grave mistake from coach Martin Luther! No wonder Marx, a clear left winger, was not playing well on the right.

pancon5 : That crisp triangular passing in the end was surely the work of assistant coach Pythagoras.

777Outrigger : "Nietzsche has just been booked for arguing with the referee. He accused Confucius of having no free will. And Confucius, he say, name go in box."

Daily Updates on Michael Jacksons Health Condition : I like how Socrates was actually offside.

Friedrich Nietzsche : This is so embarrassing! I was dreadful!

painkiller346 : Marx is the only one claiming for the material conditions

troikagirl : Both of those teams would beat England!

Dan Brown : This is what made Monty Python so special, gratuitous nudity one minute and highbrow sketch on philosophy soccer the next LOL.

Dhruv Golani : "Beckenbaur's inclusion is certainly a surprise"

Snakey Engel : "Beckenbauer obviously a bit of a surprise there..." cracks me up every time! Playing Marx on the right wing, Confuscious with his hourglass, Marx arguing for an actual offsides - it's just layer after funny layer of genius humor that's miles beyond anything in the last 30 years. BRILLIANT!

Windows Sux : It seems like the 70's took away all the intelligence and humor in the British TV shows and never gave it back ..

Malek Jendoubi : "... And Marx says it was offside" I lost it ...

Antharis79 : Aristotle, very much the man in FORM!! Simply brilliant ^^

mario1997281 : Gary Lineker said that football is a simple game. Twenty-two men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win. I guess he was wrong.

Hhutuber : Marx is right, it was clearly offside!

Brandon Nakagaki : love my philosophy teacher for showing me this

Pineapple Farmer : After Life of Brian, John Cleese took part in a discussion with some christians, who said that "You wouldn't make fun of Socrates the same way you make fun of Jesus", to which he promptly responded "Maybe I will, maybe there's something funny about him."

Alan Gabriel Medina : "and Marx says it was offside"... how can't I love this scene for god's sake?

Aaron Morris : And it was this game of "Football" that led Aristotle to later proclaim that we name things by their function.

vonArschloch Justus : and Marx was right. it was offside, but the struggle goes on

craigtucker69 : Kierkegaard played an individual sport

avril14thlove : Okay this is absolutely hilarious for philo majors. 

William Heywood : Marx was correct, Socrates was offside.

cristian leonardo quiroga ospina : nietzsche say: Maradona is dead

James Robert : The referee Confucius...LMFAO!!!

Exequiel Ortega : Marx was right

Ben Hamilton : Funny how, in a field full of philosophers, it took an engineer to figure out that you win by scoring the most points

Jovalin : Karl Marx might be the best part of this entire thing.

Ali ahmad Pasoon : Arsene Wenger got his footballing philosophy from this sketch!

Lieutenant Ivan : I bet Sarte was injured in the finals for France.

RandallFlaggNY : Epicurus  organized the victory banquet.

GuntherL1 : "and Confucius say: name go in book." The sad thing is that the BBC today would probably ban this joke because they think it's racist.

PhDInsomniac : Just finished watching Epic Rap Battles of History with East v. West Philosophers and I was immediately drawn to this gem. Nice try, EpicLloyd and Nice Peter... You have a very long way to go before you can reach the humor and depth of the gentleman of Monty Python...

TSM8088 : This was the greatest match since the English faced the Greeks in the Poet's Cup.. Byron's goaltending was beyond romantic!

Ex0dus111 : Did anyone notice the Greeks scored on themselves?

PrinceAndrew100 : My all time favourite Python sketch, nothing better, absolutely brilliant.

Sigusen : The brilliance of this is amazing!

Sylo : ''And Marx was complaining that it was offside'' XD

John Seabrook : 'And here come the Germans, led out by their skipper, Nobby Hegel'. Priceless!

Peter Hill : Apart from being the greatest sketch in history, did anyone else notice a stroke of genius...if you see the replay, it's actually not the same goal! LMFAO!

Timothy Gaede : I was reminded of this sketch when watching footage from the 1982 World Cup. Brazil's captain was Sócrates Brasileiro Sampaio de Souza Vieira de Oliveira, or simply known as Sócrates.

Douglas Rubel : I'd have liked to see Xeno get closer and closer to the goal but never able to cross. Much closer  metaphor to the outcome of the referendum.

dan taylor : Just noticed 3:27 that man in goal was at the opposing corner of the goal the first time round 2:52! Reallitttyyyy mmustt bbee warrppping what is real now?? aagghhhhh!

Rogério Penna : I guess that if there was a match between brazilian and german philosophers, the result would be 7-1 to Germany...

After GR : As a Greek I found this scene, hilarious Monty pythons are legends

Diana Cedeno : Marx claims it was offside, lol

ghjlkhl : Marx was right, it was offside

Gindberk : "And the midfield duo of Beckenbauer and Jaspers, Beckenbauer obviously a bit of a surprise there." Lost it.
