true. I flicked onto the sport whilst eating lunch today and i thought what drogba did in the game against brazil was just quite frankly very childish and should never have been allowed. But i suppose that's to be expected from these rich premiership players anyway.

Yep Ian and Eddie, that's my feeling too.

I liked the Portugal match. I like any match with Ronal-doh! in it, but Portugal really put on a show. I was getting on a roll doing a new cartoon but had to interrupt it to watch the virtuosos (and Ronaldo) at play ...

Brasil: 3 / 1: Ivory Coast (Cote D' Ivoire)

That was an exciting game with all kind of human emotions involved, very close to end up in a big fight. Luis Fabiano 2nd goal was (God's or Macumba's) hand with referee's acknowledge, 1st and 3rd Brazilian goals were amazing, beautiful. Drogba's goal was proudly nice.

The Elephants gave a hard time to the Canarinha, Verde Amarella!

Not really heavily, but it does add some time. I like the NFL coaches challenge. That way it's usually only once or twice per game for the most important calls.

And the NHL is good too, only reviewing goals.

They agreed that the judgment (albeit horrible at times) of the refs is what helps make football a unique and beautiful sport. They did however agree that the ref made a horribly inaccurate call and shouldn't be allowed to ref any more.
Yeah, my Euro girlfriend says the same thing. "It's part of the beauty of Soccer." I fail to see the beauty in screwing teams out of winning. Refs are human in any sport and will make mistakes no matter what.

The real football is one of the few sports I enjoy watching but this growing cancer of simulation is starting to turn me off it.
What do you mean by "simulation" ?

I do agree about the wussy boy aspect though. It's embarrassing. I know they want to win and think that by acting they'll get a call, but come on, have some respect for yourself.

Players busted for acting should be given very stiff penalties. Like lifetime or yearlong suspensions.

It's very simple. You dive, you get a red card. You miss the rest of that game and the next. The diving would cease.

People wonder why soccer just won't catch on in the US. Hockey players lose teeth, get stitched up and return. Football players get blasted, shake it off and miss one play and come back, And these pansies fall down and grimmace like they've been shot. a team that is tied with 14 seconds left. They get a corner kick and play a short corner, and the recieving player steps on the ball and waits for the time to run out. No shot into the box nothing. The American announcers start using the terms nil and and draw as if these were soccer words. They would never say a baseball game score was five to nil. Too much of the American act is phoney and contrived. I played soccer in college and we played to win not to tie. A tie, to use a quote, is like kissing your sister. It is totallly played by the Euro's to not lose rather than to try and win. If in trying to win you lose, Ok. But to purposely set out or feel good about a tie is shameful.

I mean that the media, networks, etc. act as if they are top of the game, and yet they have to hire, British, Scottish, Dutch et.al. play by play personnel to do the games. Are there not enough Americans informed enough to broadcast a soccer match? They do for college games. I prefer listening to the Euro announcers, but it is all an act to draw viewers. For the next four years ESPN will have squat to say about the Premier league
or the BundesLeague, or Asian soccer.

Ok. gotcha. But isn't the reason they have to bring in foreign commentators because they don't usually cover it like you pointed out there at the end? I really don't know, as I only casually get into soccer, mostly at world cup time.

I do find the ESPN announcers kind of boring during the games. Where are the guys screamin "gooooooaaaaaaaal" for like two minutes?

Oh yes, most appropriate! That ref was just a shame. I wonder if the WC is corrupted?
And it wasn't just the red card, he was completely arbitrary (haha), reacted differently at the very same situations, and was wrong quite a few times. Of course Chile played better, but still...!!??

I was driving home from work yesterday and the station I listen to was giving scores. Baseball , 2 to nothing, 3 to nothing, etc. And in the World Cup , 2 to Nil. Give me a break.

Congratulations Donovan and USA!


A word to the Swiss:

I don't like their game. Such a destructive tactic with staying the whole game in their own half and only defeating can work well for one match, but not for a whole tournament....so they deserve their defeat. I don't blame the referee as others do. The goal was not offside and the red card for Behrami is ok too. He is so silly to work with the arms - really not professional.
As everybody saw, the referee started his card festival already in the first minute, but Behrami wasn't aware in the 30th minute.

So now, Switzerland has to change tactique completely against Honduras, but i don't think, that they achieve that. The best and most creative player is Hakan Yakin, but they gave him only the role as a Joker, coming in for the last minutes...what a shame.

Anyway, no matter what happens: they have no chance then in the 8-Final against Brasil - lol.

For me the best team till now is by far Argentina - i'm really impressed. Like also their trainer.

Bernhard

Well Done England. We played like Shite, for the 1st two games, and made our selves look 2nd rate, we came good in our 3rd game, and got to the next round.

We now take on germany on Sunday, this will now be a really good game.

You never know we may get to play the Yanks again, and this time show them how to play football proper..

But i must say, you Yanks have surprissed me, with your football, espically with some of the dissions that have been mae against you..

Please excuse my spelling as it is bad, it gets me into trouble..

No offence to US & UK fans here but I would have liked Slovenia to get through. Such a David and Goliath situation - they have a population of 2 mill ... 1/150th of the US and a 25th of England, yet they did nearly as well.

Bye bye Oz, which is good news for the US. Ghana struggled to hold a 10-man Oz and lost to Germany. US will be at short odds to beat them ...

Once you get to the final 16 it usually gets boring because everyone gets serious and shuts down so as to focus on their diving technique. Apart from the Portugal game and some typical South American coolness the first round has been largely ruined by referees going card crazy.

Suddenly there are far fewer cards. In the last few games tackles that would have earned cards have only attracted free kicks or been let go. Either the refs have been told to stop spoiling the games or they have already achieved the results the big punters paid them to achieve ...

Slovakia is showing growth in football, team cohesion, and work every centimeter on the pitch not leaving spaces for the Italian forward.....I am glad that Slovakia moved to the next phase.

Italy sorry to say, but - the actual champions - never impressed since the beginning.

...............that is football, there are no little teams until the last minute, last goal.

Good summary Polly, very good.
I feel the same - regarding this World Cup, I would like to see the little (not famous, not known countries) teams move forward and to give a surprise to the whole world. Look at Paraguay with their low profile show, they have an effective and efficient style, first in their group.

Bye bye Italy - haha! After the dive to eliminate Oz in the last WC I have zero sympathy.

Now that NZ is knocked out I'm going for the attractive teams (whichever way you look at it) - Brazil, Argentina and Portugal. Strangely enough for an Ozzie, I'd like to see England do well too. They're the only team with supporters who can drown out the vuvuzelas and create that classic atmosphere at their games.

Now that NZ is knocked out I'm going for the attractive teams (whichever way you look at it) - Brazil, Argentina and Portugal. Strangely enough for an Ozzie, I'd like to see England do well too. They're the only team with supporters who can drown out the vuvuzelas and create that classic atmosphere at their games.
Amen to the England fans... there are absolutely none like us.

The English fans are the best, offoically, only 6000 tickets were sold to the English fans for the Usa game, but there was poberly in the region of 20,000 + english fans in the ground.

The atmosphere will be really good inside the ground, when England play Germany on Sunday..

Joke.

This world cup has turned out like world war 1. The french and itailians surrenderd early, the Usa arrive at the last miniute, and we are left to fight the F4@king germans.



"Its only a joke" calm down,
