And Christina Ronaldo is the biggest cry baby on the planet who deserves the diver of the tournament award. If he only would stop trying to show off and play the fucking game maybe he'd be alright...what a loser


Keep trying.

Grosso, Henry, Ronaldo, Ballack, Asamoah, Camoranesi, Ribery... they don't play for Portugal, I guess.

But yeah, Cristiano Ronaldo needs to grow up and realize he messes a lot of good chances by diving. and then he shouts to the ref... that's really lame, I admit. Pauleta had some bad attitudes during the WC too for that matter.

On the otherside, it's awesome to see how you and a lot of other english people still are bitter against portugal. yeah, we've been a problem for you over the last six years... get over it

I'm just taking the piss, don't get annoyed I don't want any more mess about this stuff, it's over... it's over. But on the other hand I'm sick of seeing stupid criticism to C.Ronaldo and Portugal.

So all the experts must be wrong who said that Germany played, except from the semi-finale against Italy and partly the game agains Argentina, offensive football.

And that's including not only German experts like Beckenbauer (despite the fact that I hate this man) or former players, but also the international experts.

There is an article in Spiegel about that fact, that it was a great World Cup looking at the atmosphere and all, but a boring World Cup qualitywise.

He said most teams didn't try to show their own strenghts, but tried to destroy the strenghts of the other team and so the players couldn't show their talent.

I think he is right, but I also think that Germany played the most offensive football since more tan 30 years.

Thanks for the link, annie_vox, that's hilarious

don't get me started on Ballack.

sure those people dive also, but the team doign the most diving collectivly was portugal, led by: Ronaldo, Deco, Figo, Pauleta, Postiga..


and i'm not bitter either, just hate watching diving/cheating.

And Portugal... well, I think fourth place is ok with them, even though the team never showed much. Perhaps their high point was beating Mexico on the first round, because they never played well after that.

And Germany, well... some people may like being third. But, for me, if you play at home, not winning the World Cup is a failure. And Germany was lucky to even make it that far, as they were outplayed by both Argentina and Italy.

I may sound bitter, but this World Cup was way too boring for my taste. I am praying for an entertaining final tomorrow, but that might be just wishful thinking at this point.
I left for Europe on vacation and haven't had computer access, nece did see if you out your money where your England world cup confidence was, did you?

Remember, $25 donation to www.bpkids.org

Still on BlackBerry access only, so won't be checking in until back in the us, hope to see a game as well, and fairly, played as the Italy semi final. Also hope its as well refereed, against fifa directive he let them play, and didn't hand out an excess of cards yet he had total control of the game and the players stopped diving when they realized he was having none of it

So, here's to Totti and Henry showing off only their football skills today, and the world cup coming home. To Italy.

Aren't the Italian clubs that are involved in the ongoing trial accused of doping their players too, or is it "just" bribery?

Imagine that Italy won tonight and all the clubs were found guilty in a few days time. 13 of the players in the Italian squad would be regarded as criminals.

A few of the French players would be affected as well, because they play for Italian clubs (Vieira and Thuram and the like).

Hardly

Just as it was a handful of high level execs at enron and worldcom, same is true of the clubs.

The players are not on trial, and nothing untoward has been suggested other than some nets buffon placed and even then nothing came of it

it's "just" bribery.
(from what I know) none of the players are involved... it's all about f ing team managers and refs
as if it isn't enough that we're called MAFIA on a daily basis
