Does what it says on the tin
Minding my own business, enjoying the game, then I am forced to see THAT!!!!!! :yuck:
Can anyone belive this man was spotted after 80 mins!!! :eek: losing his touch I guess....anyone else see some of their boys out there? :wave:
Anyone else think that the crowd sounds like the excited gathering at the schoolboy internationals ? (especailly when Korea attack) :fishing:
Worst match of the tournament so far :(
Go Togo - excellent strike:bound:
Very sensible move. We need a fresh start. We need to remove all things sven as far from english football as possible and that includes beckhams influence on the squad. Still good enough to be in our squad but we need a leader. I believe we need to get shot of maclaren to get a clean break but...
Beggars belief :nono:
The Guardian has the following suggestions ...
I've got a piece of steak stuck in my windpipe - could you help me get it out?
Your wife likes it when I do this
You can't win, Zinedine. If you strike me down I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine
OK, a bit optimistic this, given the undoubted failure of the team has to reflect on the manager, but I've been wondering whether he is as bad as it is being made out.
IMHO he had a choice - do we play a formation that we all feel comfortable with, or does he play our world-standard players...
just an idea!!! :wave:
1. How far will England go (ie group stages, 2nd round,Qtr finals ect)
2. Leading goalscorer at group stage
3. Name the group winners

Viewing figures for the final:
BBC: 11.2m, rising to 17m
ITV: 2.5m, rising to 3.5m lol
Their commentary is shit, their pundits can't pund, and I can never read the numbers properly on their on-screen graphics.
Why didn't they put on a film instead? I'm sure something like The Remains of...
The same company that ran the Premierleague.com Fantasy Football is running the Fantasy World Cup for the Metro... The rules are very similar to the main Premierleague Fantasy Football. Unlike the game advertised on the Premierleague website, you can choose from all players in the World Cup (not...
My favourite by some distance is Cambiasso's, after the 24 pass move.
I think it was a marginal success, blighted by some blatant cheating and dodgy reffing.
Some very good football, Germany v Italy being the outstanding game of the tournement. Also some some crap footy, England failing to perform, Svens bad squad selection and tactics.
Seemed to be a well...

What are peeps views on Zlatan Ibrahimovic - top scorer at 66/1...
For third place. Does anyone know what exactly is the point of this? Does anyone, even in Germany or Portugal, give a flying **** who comes third? It's a bit like having a match between Brentford and Huddersfield to determine who came third in the recent play-offs.
This is a thread especially designed for you to say what you think of this man. Unfortunately I can't turn the swear filter off for it.
Ronaldo - you are a complete Scunthorpe.*
*Delete letters as appropriate.
Very important you all do this...
There is a very real danger that Cristiano Ronaldo will be voted the
fans' best young player at the World Cup despite his pouting, diving,
pretty boy antics designed mainly to get himself a lucrative transfer to
Real Madrid and thus avoid the good kicking he...
Those of us who thought the Argentinian referee was establishing his credentials with Blatter for the World Cup Final during the England-Portugal game have seen their suspicions confirmed:
How much longer do we have to put up...
footballing + xmen equals a win
You see Ronaldo portugal never used his true power as a mutant.
fat ronaldo used his fatness to bounce other players out his way and become the all time top world cup scorer! well done fat ronaldo
portugal ronaldo mutates into a crying tool after most...
Do i support the cheating diving tossers of Portugal or the cheating diving garlic stinking frogs?
I am inclined to go against history and don a berret a string of onions and cycle around the lounge waving a loaf of bread while cheering on the French.:sorted:
Looks like the Pope may have a problem.

What I did on my summer holiday
By Theo Walcott Esq aged 8 1/2
I went to a place called Germany with my Uncle Sven and some other grown up's. It is a country in Europe where a bad man called Adolf used to live with his nazties, he does not live there anymore, Uncle Owen does live there, and...
All the goals from the world cup on this link:
click on the scores you want to see, then a smaller window appears, then click on the moving football and the goals-hey presto!
I realise this guy isn't rated and on the basis of his appearances (nearly all as sub) for England, I can see why. But the boo-ing as he was introduced on Saturday was embarrassing and brought shame on the England fans, IMHO.
Slate the guy in the pub, or on the internet, by all means, but to...
In what other walk of life, is this allowed to happen other than in Football ?!
If fancy your Brazilian name on the back of one of their shirts, try this :-
Second last paragraph makes interesting reading. I wonder how many of his views have had an influence on to the pitch. Obviously encourages cheating and is a facist.
Surprised no thread already on this ...
I predict Portugal to comfortably win 2-1, with Ronaldo and Figo scoring and Rooney getting a late consolation. Oh and Beckham will get 2 yellow cards for backchatting the ref ...
According to the BBC Portugal are claiming an "interview" with The Sun...
Never did it for me, thought he was a squad player to be used when everyone is knackered, but the last couple of games he has been pretty good and today he had his best ever game in an England shirt, I also said that about him in the last game, but today he was brilliant.
Which English player was the biggest let down in the world cup?
For me, Fat Frank Lampard has been shown up as one of the most overrated footballers in the world. No pace, can't beat a man, rarely delivered a killer ball, rubbish at heading. At least for Chelsea he scored some of his long range...
1-1 at half-time. Nicely poised. Spain looked comfortable until the French equalised against the run of play. Stupid way to concede a penalty by the French, but the ref was excellently placed to spot the foul. Could turn into a cracker in the second half. Will Henry time any of his runs...
Good riddance to the diving Brazilians.
Moment of the match ? Zidane nonchalantly chipping the ball over fattie Ronaldo and nodding it on to a team mate. :sorted:
...Graham Poll. Time to get an early start preparing for Torquay vs Accrington Stanley.
Hmph, I was looking forward to sitting down and watching this tonight with a few cheeky beers but just noticed that they're kicking off in 15 mins - tonights game is Italy v Shevchenko ! :(
A classic schoolboy error by Bee H !
Anyway, c'mon Herr Podolski, a nice hat-trick from you...
Facing a long lay off, hope he recovers ASAP and gets back to his best. Cruel blow for him as he was working so hard to get fit
Have to say that Buffon, Cannovaro, Zambrotta and Gattuso would be in my players of finals XI along with Stephen Appiah of Ghana, Klose and Lahm (sp) of Germany. No one else springs to mind but many stars (including English ones) haven't fired yet!!!
Still say its a crap World Cup with too many...
Phewy ! Blame the heat now .Ecuador will be used to it :sorted:
Hope those that have bet on them for WC have a side bet on today's game. Just got in to watch the last 20 minutes+ and my prediction this morning could well happen that the Aussies progress. Talked to my american boss about it on the phone today, I may have well predicted it to the goldfish as he...
I know I've mentioned this in a couple of other threads, and I know it is incredibly unpopular with the traditionalists, but this world cup has convinced me the game is poorer without it.
This was not something I've thought about prior to this world cup, but with the outcome of so many games...
England will win the World Cup?
If they do it will make a mockery out of the beautiful game I have loved and worshiped..
I wasn't around in '66 to remember but how possibly can this shower of sh!te be compared to them?
It seems he can only score when it's served up on a plate for him but when it is he certainly knows how to tuck in!
Is it a competition between bbc and ITV as to who can have the most annoying commentators. His monotone drone of a voice just cuts straight through you like howard bl00dy wilkinson!
Seems to me that everyone is getting mightly p***ed off with all this diving and cheating going on at this year's World Cup.
The game has certainly lost a great opportunity to spread the word amongst (above all) the Yanks and the Aussies. But why would any potential new fans turn to supporting a...

Just asking like cos the press and TV are all about new formations,
He has taken Walcott and dosen't seam to have the convition to play him,
he took Rooney, Crouch and Owen, knowing that Rooney and Crouch were not 100% and that the likely pairings would probably be Crouch/ Rooney or Crouch...
Has there been a single shot in this game?
