I hope the Germans will do well tonight
they have done one heck of a job hosting the Wold Cup
and they are one of the few teams who actually played football without just focussing on defence

I have this feeling Italy will win (I'm usually wrong though), but I think Germany will always have reasons to be very proud after tonights match no matter what the result will be

Frings was punished first because Germany are playing tonight. I'm sure some Argentinean players will be punished in the near future too once the officials have more time to review the tapes.

Exactly!!


I really can’t see how anyone could honestly believe that FIFA is manipulating things so Germany wins. Surely they would be better served by having more non-european teams in the semi-finals? Surely they would have “engineered” a Brazil-Germany final as the ratings would have been though the roof? I can’t wait to see how FIFA fixes the cup so South Africa wins in 2010!!

I think reffing the host nation, though, affects referees on a subconscious psychological level. I think it's unavoidable when you have tens of thousands of people screaming for their team; it would be difficult not to get caught up in the emotion. The best referees have the ability to minimize or even get rid of this feeling, but it's not easy.

That said, I think most major decisions have been pretty fairly made at the Cup (bar the Australia penalty, but I have a whole different point on that about Lucas Neill and why I dislike him although this time I think he was wronged). The problem has been with too much persistent fouling and whistle-blowing that has disrupted the flow of games.

But really, to suggest a FIFA conspiracy is utter rubbish, as you say. If I were them I'd let Angola go through to at least the second round because it'd be a lovely story and the bets they'd earn would be fantastic. Maybe beat Portugal as well, ex-colony and all. FIFA gains NOTHING from a conspiracy, and they'd have to be playing some pretty hard ball to convince referees and team officials to not abide by the rules. Contrary to popular belief, refs are honest people. Oh yeah, but I forgot, Sepp Blatter is German and wants them to win and stuff, so he'll fix everything. No wonder so many Swedish teams won the Champions League when Lennart Johannsen was UEFA chief.
