Last year "The Wall" sucked, (well, he was at Real, you can't awate a player plays good there)but this season he played definitely better. I say Samuel is a defender I would always have in my ideal team, Argentina would have been a bit safer in my opinion

Southamerican commentators are the best in the world, no one overcomes them, no one! They talk even when the game is over!

BTW, I've read Intedomine's post, it doesn't seem he claimed an anti-Brazil feeling, he just affirms that he doesn't want Brazil to win because it would be their 6th time, and he would prefer better another team. It's normal, I don't see any anti-thing or whatever, he doesn't talk against them....................
Anyway, I'm of the opinion that who deserves must win, if Brazil is the strongest team I'd have no problem with their 6th cup. What counts is to see good, fair and exciting games.
My friend that is only his 2nd comment , his 1st was that he would dearly love to see brazil loses the 3 games , tell me anyone who wishes this to other team , and is not an anti-feeling .

BTW I just saw the argentinian team is pretty brave , in a good and bad way , bad or crazy way coz I just saw , Zanetti is out , is he crazy or somethin ? Unless if he got the same 'thing' of Veron , well he's in the same team , but I dont think he entered in that little dirty behind scenes ' game ' promoted by Veron . I always saw Zanetti as a nice guy , unlike certain others or maybe I'm a big fool or not well informed . Anyway I think it's a loss for Argentina.

BTW tomorrow , The final of Champions league , 24 players that will be on cup

I see , didnt know they was on Uefa , tell me how many teams were on the Calcio thia year . coz I heard Palermo ended in the middle of it . I just thought strange they had more players to the azurra , than Lazio , Fiori , Inter , Parma , teams people know more.

Na, I don't think it was bad meaned. In the end, how can Brazil lose against Japan and Australia? Maybe a draw against Croatia

Leaving out Javier Zanetti was a big mistake, this player is able to carry a whole team on his shoulders, I'm sure Pekerman will have many regrets. Veron, I'm frankly waiting the day his bloody ass will be kicked out of Inter. He's nothing else than a miserable quarrelsome, selfish player, he made many Inter players to go against Adriano, and there's a very high risk that he might quit us. Veron is a suckass, he better leaves. During the game against Villarreal he quarrelled 90 minutes with his enemy Sorin, and he couldn't care the less for the game. He might be a good player, but he's an earthquake for the peace of a team. He wants everytime to overcome and to be the leader. Pekerman did the good of Argentina by not calling him

3 Inter 76
4 Fiorentina 74
5 Roma 69
6 Lazio 62
7 Chievo Verona 54

Yeah in few words u explained for everyone , lemme see some of the reasons veron is outta argentina , and what have he been doing.

Yeah Now I see it , its not a really great final pos. but for a unknown team it's quite brilliant , but I'm surprised that Parma was behind it . Guess the end of parmalat , was pretty tough on it.

BTW buddy , if Juve really falls for serie B , so I guess what like the 3rd place of it will go up ?

P.S.: people , whos ' feeling a child ' these days , and collecting a sticker album of the cup ?

My ideal line up for Croatia (3-5-2):

GOALKEEPER

Butina (not usualy their first choice but I think he makes less mistakes than Pletikosa)

DEFENDERS

---------R. Kovac--------Tomas----------------Tudor

MIDFIELDERS

Srna----(as he's proved to be very compitant in this position)Simic

-----------------------------N.Kovac---------------------------------------------

Vranjes------------------------------------------------------------------J.Leko

FORWARDS

----------------Prso------------------------------------Olic

Best commentary ever: Holland Vs Argentina when Bergkamp scored THAT goal in the last minute and the Dutch commentator went wild -

"dennish bergkamp, dennish berkamp, dennish bergkamp, DENNISH BERGKAMP, DENNISH BERGKAMP, DENNISH BERGKAMP!!!"

For people in the US (and maybe Canada), Univision (Spanish-language TV in the US) is the way to go. The guys who were doing the games in 2002 were smoking some high-quality Colombian powder.

Maybe, i do have an anti-Brazil sentiment, but it is not one which is directed out of spite, but perhaps out of a kind of tall-poppy syndrome.

And just think, if Brazil did lose all 3 games, it would be another fascinating contribution to the increasingly remarkable history of the world cup. The favourites exit without winning a game, ala France in 2002.

If this did happen, the best thing about it would be how it sticks it right up all of the pundits who reckon Brazil are a shoo in for winning the 06 World Cup, which I think is too simplistic.

All I'm saying is that if Brazil win the World Cup deservedly and exhibit their supremacy throughout the tournament, good on 'em and I'll have the utmost respect for them.

But I still would rather anyone else to win (except maybe England), cause i just reckon it'd be nice.

This is not anti-brazil in any way at all. If Togo were in the position Brazil are in now, I'd probably feel the same way about Togo.

In the lead up to this particular World Cup, I do not wanna see Brazil win. That's all there is to it.

And if Brazil were to lose all 3 games, it would be one less team the Aussies would have to worry about in progressing into the next stage.

C'mon Barca tonight...!
