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."

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

troikagirl : Both of those teams would beat England!

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!

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.

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

Hhutuber : Marx is right, it was clearly offside!

Brandon Nakagaki : love my philosophy teacher for showing me this

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 ..

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

avril14thlove : Okay this is absolutely hilarious for philo majors. 

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?

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

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

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

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

Exequiel Ortega : Marx was right

craigtucker69 : Kierkegaard played an individual sport

cristian leonardo quiroga ospina : nietzsche say: Maradona is dead

William Heywood : Marx was correct, Socrates was offside.

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

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

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

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

Sigusen : The brilliance of this is amazing!

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?

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.

J. A. Antón : How is Leibniz during the goal (2:49) in the left side of the goal and during the replay (3:24) in the right side, even after the principle "Natura non facit saltus"?

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

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!

Diana Cedeno : Marx claims it was offside, lol

Kuro Temprano : Over 40 years old and yet so timely! Bravo Python.

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

2serveand2protect : HAAAA!HA!HA!HA!HA!  When I saw the referee and Tommaso d'Aquino within his assistants I started laughing so much I had a hic-up for an hour! XDXDXD...

Violette Summer : PhiFA Philosophers Football Association

Nova Sky : A much more defensive line up ! absolutely hilarious if you know anything about Greek phillosphy

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

Bruno Coriolano : Monty Python is fantastic. Greetings from Brazil 🇧🇷
