Buffon

R. Carvalho
Lahm

Maniche
Pirlo
Zidane

C Ronaldo
Klose
Henry
You picked an all-European team. I would replace Carvalho by Ayala and C. Ronaldo by Crespo. I know I'm biased, but Argentina was perhaps the team that did not make it to the semis that showed the best football.

I was thinking of whom to support in this final and I am torn. On one side, I have the team of my family, but that represents perhaps a bunch of corrupt players, referees and authorities. It would kind of be a shame if Italy will lift the cup, knowing how corrupted the local championship is, and that many of these players play for corrupted clubs (such as Juventus or Milan).

On the other hand, I have a team of "oldies", where several players will retire from the team after this World Cup and that plays, in my opinion, ugly football (only one striker, lots of big defenders, etc.). It would be a nice farewell for Zidane, but I don't know.

I also have this feeling that this WC Champion will command less respect than what Brazil got after winning the last WC. After all, both Italy and France seem to be "beatable" teams that could lose to any of the other top teams in the world.

Well , we cant forget that the fact that the cup is in europe helped , save from BRA and ARG , every team since the quarters were europeans . Well the point is ,

1st - Let's not get back to this discussion, t but Argentina played ONE magical game indeed , but against who ...... a drunken and already beaten .

2nd - Cant really trust the Ayala , he looks like anytime he's goin ask for a red card , besides not that the penalty was that important , but a guy who kicks like that , where are other great or better defensers ...... it's a definitely

3rd - How come u want to take out Ronaldo , he which is a great winger striker , just learnt this word yesterday winger which in spanish is Ponta as well I think like here . Any way the point is if you asked to put Messior or Saviola perhaps but what the.... will I do with a Crespo who is nothin but a good-regular striker , and i already put Klose on the team

4-You arent a very fan of portugal arent ya pablo

I think France deserves a lot of respect if they win. They allowed only one goal combined against Spain, Brazil, and Portugal and two goals total so far. It'll help show that 1998 was not a fluke too.

I don't know who to support either... I guess that I'll decide that during the game on Sunday.

Pepokiss pretty much said it . Brazil was only a team against Japan , Brazil only DID play on this cup against Japan . No wonder it was the only one Robinho and Juninho started playin together , point is , save from the Japan game , Brazil never put their feet on the fields

Does anyone question that .....

too much dead weight... Cafu, Roberto Carlos, Emerson, Lucio... and of course they "couldn't" be out of the team...


no hunger... maybe for dollars... or Big Macs, for Ronaldo :giggles:

Ok wait a second Lucio did an outstandin cup , he's the one cant be touched ........... And neither him or Emerson were " intouchable " on the A team

So you said a right comment I give you that , but dont start with the lashin and unbased critics , I know you love to bash Brazil , but that have been taken care of , there was lot of shame already mate so ... drop it

Dont know who i want to win on Sunday, ive been pretty wrong on predictions this WC, didnt think either France or Italy would get to the final, either way both teams have done better in tournaments than England, weve fought both of them in wars as well,so with regret i say FORZA ITALIA, ALLEZ LES BLUES.lets have a classic final.

Yeah that's what I think too... But I have a small personal reason to support Italy... but since it has nothing to do with football I guess it can't help me decide

From that standpoint, for Germany it's hard in any championship to be for anyone else.
