Cruyff says it's going to be ok!

I said it right at the beginning of this thread - Italian soccer is boring, unimaginative and they never play to win, but not to lose. And again, same old story, score a goal and pull all 10 men back the other day.

Italy deserved to lose. When will they see that their style might have worked in the 60s but no longer?

I bet that, even in case Robben gets injured, Advocaat won't dare to take him to the side. He'll have to play with or without broken bones.

I really paid the price for sleeping, eh?

If there's one guy to blame for the Italian defeat, blame Christian Vieri.

Any top-class striker should have put away at least a few of the chances he had against Sweden.

But he didn't, and they're out.

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!



Now we get to hear the whining from the Azzurri about "it was a conspiracy!"

I've got 10 bucks in on the Italian side demanding UEFA launch a formal investigation.

And 10 more on Vieri being a whiney bitch. Oh wait...I already won that one.

Any talk of conspiracy is complete rubbish.

I'm sorry, the Italians have some of the best players in the world but if they're not up to standard they shouldn't be blaming others. Sweden and Denmark are professional team, and, more importantly, they are playing international football for their countries, and to suggest they have shaken hands over the result merely to oust Italy is an insult to both nations. It's a slur among the Scandinavians' professionalism and sporting integrity, and if I was a Dane or a Swede I'd be very offended.

Comiserations to valentina and babyman, but I have to be very honest and say I have absolutely no sympathy for the Italian team, and while I hope they do better by the time the World Cup rolls around (as well as the next Euros in Austria and Switzerland), this whole 'blame game' and conspiracy rubbish needs to stop.

Cruyff also said Ritchie Humphreys was going to be exactly like him back in the mid-90s. He got that one spectacularly correct, didn't he?

BTW, it's a pity you cannot understand Dutch, as it's quite funny to hear Cruyff talk about football. At times it all seems so simple and at times it's incomprehensible.
Oh, and he never learned to speak 'proper' Dutch, so you get all these amazing 'Cruyff-phrases' ("Every disadvantage have its advantage" and things like that)

sounds like Kevin Keegan and the English language!

one of KK's many gems:

'The 33 or 34-year-olds will be 36 or 37 by the time the next World Cup comes around, if they're not careful.'

No, it wasn't a trick: RAI (our national TV) DID send extra cameras there...
Anyqay I don't believe Denmark and Sweden planned to send Italy out.
Maybe we deserved it... Anyway now it's over!

Let's hope next time we'll have a greater coach and players with their heads (and feet) not on holidays

As regards Vieri... Well, I'm still his fan. I really disliked the way he was attacked by the media -- and even if it's declarations were exaggerated, I think I know how he felt...

Damn journalists: they use to speak too much when they just should report facts and not invent them.

Sorry for Italy that's out...

And Martjin: I'm so sorry for your team, too!!!

LoL!
