BAD OCTOPUS!:smackbum:

If it helps at all, my family is committed to cheering for Holland. I suspect my mother might even stoop to hand-wringing, explosive cursing and bargaining with God on the Netherlands' behalf.:e2drunk:

That, and their defense is not their strongest part, with the efficiency Holland's been displaying, that might give us a shot at them.



close game i thought, even if you lot were abit dirty(nowt wrong with that in my eyes).

I think everyone would agree that spain are the best team in the world though, so fair play.and with arguably there best striker, torres, unfit for the competition

Yesterday's match was terribly unimpressive. Excessively aggresive tactics on Netherlands part & excessive drama on Spain's part.

Somewhere there should have been soccer being played in all this...

Webb gave a horrible performance. De Jong should've caught red, the same for arguably Van Bommel but certainly Iniesta and Puyol. That, and the corner he failed to give led to the attack (offside, if I'm correct), which led to the goal.

And yes, it was a bit dirty, but at a certain point, Webb started to decided pretty much everything against Holland. Some of the yellows he gave certainly weren't yellow cards at all.

That said, Spain did deserve the win more than Holland. 'Cause let's face it, if you get two chances like Robben did and you don't score...

The way holland set out to play, he was always going to be heavily involved. You could have easily started the second half with 10, 9 or even 8 players

While that is true, everyone does seem to overlook teh fact that Spain made some rough fouls as well in the first part of the match.

But what were they supposed to do? Let Van Bommel and co. walk all over them? If the ref can't take his responsibilities, then you have to show your opponent that you can reply to their challenge.

It was a dreadful game. Lots of foul play, lots of godawful rulings from the ref but I think in the end, it's the best team that won. Holland showed nothing.

Oh, the best team definitely did win. But I'm still gonna argue about teh decisions before the goal, which in the end were wrong and made the match.

Bearing in mind that I'm a North American casual viewer of soccer. :blah1:

EDIT: I had a response and deleted it, I'm just not up to dissecting the World Cup with my fine Euro friends.:Hug2:

Yes! Superior!!

I think the final world is : that was a rather poor World Cup. Unenjoyable games, rubbish refs, disappointing players, vuvuzelas...

Agh, true. It was a terrible Cup. Fifa needs to learn to give the players some rest.
