Precisely it. Make a public speech, accept blame but imply that you made the right choices and that it wasn't REALLY your fault, shake hands with the prez.

That's how they do it.

Maybe the Italian government can put restrictions on the Serie A clubs, that they have to put more talented Italian players on the field and keep foreign players out

Neeeeeever gonna happen. Rich, influential clubs aren't going to stop putting their star players out there, leaving the Italian second-line on the bench. Because they want to win. NOW.

They couldn't give a rat's ass about the long-run, or about the national team. They're running a business.

And the Italian government is currently run by the president of Milan, so...nope. Ain't gonna happen.

I fucking WISH it would, but no.

I don't know, I just don't think the government should spent much time on it and try to meddle with it when they probably don't really know much about it.

Sadly, that's one of the few things the government is good at...chatting about soccer and shit.


Pure awesomeness. You must read it.

Agreed...
So, tomorrow we'll have Uruguay vs Korea (I am predicting an easy win for Uruguay) and USA vs Ghana (no idea, really).

Well I guess Spain and Chile deserved to top this group. It was nice to see Switzerland beat Spain in the first game, but that defensive football style they use is kinda boring to watch. So I'm happy Spain and Chile are through actually.

And now we get some more interesting matches in the second round too. Spain - Portugal should be great and I expect a lot from Brazil - Chile as well.

OK the Serbia 1-0 win was OK, you know, it's a pro mistake it happens. But now that Ghana 1-0 win!?
Have you even watched the game?
The guys that played in black where Germany, so it's Germany 1 - Ghana 0.

Your right YES I WATCHED THE DAMN GAME I forgot I was thinking about the serbia game I tricked myself.
Portugal Vs Brazil
I can not believe they tied 0-0 that was a pretty interesting game they both played awesome defense sides and I gotta say Portugal came so close to loosing. it was a pretty good overall game though.
Ivory Coast Vs Korea DPR
That was a really interesting game especially because I was cheering for Ivory Coast since they tied Portugal but Ivory Coast was controlling the ball the hole time but Korea DPR's goalie did alright I guess.
Chile Vs Spain
That was a close match I was going for Spain but I thought Chile was getting some really close chances around there. Spain did pretty well but I'm glad Chile made it they worked really hard.

Just saw a lipreader's transcriptions of what Queirós was shouting into the pitch, and he was constantly ordering the players to win the midfield war.

"Tiago! We can't lose the ball there, okay? We can't lose the ball there. We need to be more aggressive."

"PEPE! OVER HERE" (gesturing to "zone 6" [defensive midfielder] line - note that Pepe is a centre-back and later almost broke a Brazilian player's ankle)

Violent football gets the job done in midfield, and when a team dominates midfield, that's half the game. It's not pretty, but these aren't friendlies either.
On that note, i am very surprised at Bruno Alves being quite efficient and not fouling nearly as much as expected. In his club, he's known for being a real tractor of a centre-back, excessively violent, which is part of the club's tradition, to have one of those and one very clean and efficient centre back.
For the national team, though, it's like he's a whole different person.

Just watched Chile vs. Spain. I was pretty sure that they were going to tie, but with that ref who expelled Estrada with no reason at all, i was expecting maybe a 3-0 for Spain. Luckily, Chile knew how to stand up and keep playing without a player.
I didn't even see a foul before Estrada's expulsion. The spanish guy tripped with the field.

Not really. Teams change over time and strictly speaking our team is made up of better players on paper then the current German team is. If we play more like we did the other day then I'm not worried too much.

Good luck to USA though. I hope they get far.

I can see that too, though Uruguay and US can go either way and Brazil is going to win it. No European teams has won when the World Cup hasn't been hosted on their continent. I don't see that changing seeing the way they have played so far.

I wouldn't trust Spain going all the way. Their group play didn't impress me one bit and I don't think they can stack up to quality teams like Netherlands, Argentina, Brazil. The Netherlands are a surprisingly talented side that could pose a serious threat against Brazil assuming the two meet each other. I think if they meet that would be the game of the tournament.

And Argentina despite having a somewhat shaky defense are still my picks to reach the finals on the other half of the bracket. I think they can easily handle Mexico, a weak Germany/England, and have a good enough team to match Spain, assuming they play them.

But the knockout rounds are when all of the pretenders get eliminated and now we finally get to see some real intense, quality playing. There's no more playing for ties and everything is on the line in these games. I can't wait for the matches to start.

I wouldn't count on that. We can't expect "fireworks" from either team, as no team wants to lose. So they will try to have a strong defence to not concede any goals.

That would make for a pretty uninspiring tournament, without a single shock along the way (except arguably the USA beating Uruguay). I'd like to see at least one unfancied side dishing out an upset to one of the big guns.

Also I missed the games yesterday as I was stuck on the M25 for hours... and hours, but I am really glad Chile got through- they played some excellent and exciting football, despite only needing a draw to progress. That red card was an absolute farce and I wish there was a way to appeal it and avoid the ban.

Off to Turkey now for 2 weeks, so I'll be back for England vs the USA in the world cup final!

Looks good to me, although I would put Argentina in the finals instead of Spain and would put Uruguay in the semi-finals instead of the USA.

Also, maybe Chile can surprise by beating Brazil, but I wouldn't bet on it.

It wasn't a red card but two yellows. And Estrada simply had it coming. He should've been sent off a few minutes earlier, when he fouled a player yet again.

Also speaking of "avoiding the ban": How on earth did Villa not get banned? He clearly hit an opposite player in the face in the match against Honduras, so why wasn't he banned for that? The FIFA should stick to their own rules and not privilege one team over any other team...

Also, I just noticed that Brazil's work is really easy until the final..on paper, at least.
But I think that someone is going to have a surprise win against them.Spain...hm, they will definitely make it to the semifinals, but after that, I dunno...Agrentina will probably lose against Germany IF they face each other...
But, once again, anything can happen.

While the three lions roam free :')

Anyway I'm still looking forward to it. Got to love playing the 'old enemy'. There is just something 'romantic' about England vs Germany, and considering our history together I tend to think we're all quite nice about it. Besides having a few laughs of course..

But whatever you do, don't mention the war.

Oh well, now the real deal begins...

I'll be cheering for Uruguay against South Korea. I like their football, and I want as many South American teams on the quarter finals as possible, to show how much we are AWESOME.

As for yesterday's Brazil vs. Portugal... eh, I expected at least a goal. I thought Nilmar was going to do really well in the second half, judging from his first half, but we couldn't get the ball to him, since we were playing more defensively in the second. It was a pretty rough match, but it cooled down in the second half, when Felipe Melo was changed. He's a freaking horse!

And we have Chile ahead now, and they will play without three of their starters. It won't be easy, though...
