If all your hopes for this World Cup rely on Wayne Rooney then you will have a really tough time... in any event, I hope we meet each other again... and we can play fair and square, with no hands of God and invented penalty kicks like the one in the last World Cup.
or Diego Simeone falling down like he's been shot to get Beckham sent off

Beckham deserved to be sent off. If not for that play, for being a mediocre soccer player that cares more about modelling than playing... too bad that Duscher did not break his leg right before the last World Cup.

correct me if i'm wrong but playing for manchester united and real madrid and being the captain of a top ten ranking country in world football doesn't really constitute your description of a 'mediocre soccer player'.

Ok, let me put it differently... : "overrated" player...

It is very easy to play in a club full of stars like Real Madrid. It is much tougher to play for a small club like Napoli, where Maradona played in Italy, and have that club win the championship.

We shall verify this next year, my bet is that Beckham will go completely unnoticed. I believe that a player like Lampard in your team has much more "true" talent than the Spice Boy.

Well, only Ayala will play the next World Cup so it should be pretty fair and square.

give the lad some credit, most football fans, English included would concede Becks doesn't compare with fatty, but he is an excellent footballer, i've enjoyed many great performances from him at Old Trafford when he was with United, and he hasn't done too bad as England skipper over the years

Ok, I give up. I will give Beckham a break and you will not call the great Diego "fatty"...

Rooney has a lot of talent, Michel Platini loves him very very much.
But i'm afraid that he becomes the next Gascoigne, i wonder if he can resist to the pressure, his recent behavior proves that he is not mature yet. I know that he is young, but Maradona, Pelé and Ronaldo had a lot of pression too at the same age.
He has the capacity to be a top 5 world players if he works seriously, and if he is a real professional.

Do you think that Ferguson will manage to control him as he did with Cantona and Keane ? It seems that Ferguson lost this capacity, is he still repected by his players ?

i think rooney is the best young player in the world right now but he does have a temprament problem. ferguson needs to calm him down. i don't know if ferguson is still respected by the players, i guess he is. by the old boys like neville scholes giggs and keane anyway. but maybe the dominance of chelsea is getting to him. Rooney makes man united and england come alive with his talent but he needs to stop getting so hot headed and worked up.
