I can only hope the second half stays the same as this one. I'd love to see a 5-4 in the 15 minutes of the final extra time. :P

Of course, because my team isn't playing. Otherwise...

And yeah, we could really use a video referee. I've seen referees wearing those small microphones to communicate with the assistants, why can't we use this in the World Cup?

I mean, if England loses this match, that play will be mentioned forever. And, really, the ball was "too" inside for the assistant to have missed it! And I was praising the referee trio before the match...

Oh well, second half is about to begin. I'm already thinking about the complains after the match...

Nope, referee's decision at the time is final, end of. If England go on to lose this match due to this, at the very least I hope you guys kick up enough of a stink to force Blatter's hand once and for all. When Henry robbed us we did as much as we could but FIFA were never going to listen to a country of our size. You might have a better chance of rattling their cages than us :P

I insist, we dont even need a solution based on technology (wich would be the best), the only thing needed was those 2 referees behind the goals, just like in some games of the europa league, that FIFA refused to use.

Things have to change. Now. It's ruinning a chance given only every 4 years, and for some players, once in a lifetime.

I think it's quite possibly to finally force the sport forward technologically, and the Irish case will help. This whole WC (qualifiers included) has been full of bitching, whining, crying, drama, controversy... And in every case they're right.
I just hope England loses now, because if they win they won't be pissed off enough to do jack shit. So i just went from neutral to German.
And yeah, i just now noticed: not even the damn comm devices for the reffing team? Or this god damned thing (which UEFA needs to adopt as well, btw)?
Meanwhile, Frankie just hit the bar. If anyone's mad, it's him lol

This is from Chawk who reached his posting limit:

Oh, and uh, if you're English and have bitched about adidas' new ball, kindly STFU.: OLD news, as well.adidas > Nike and all other brands since forever and until forever. Everyone bitched about this ball, everyone bitched about the +teamgeist...
Get with the times, the new balls have been out for a while, what exactly is it the players do in practice sessions? Play scrabble?

3-1 Germany, in a deadly counter attack.

Now, even with the "stolen" goal, Germany would be ahead. I don't know if England can get back on this one...

3-1, England all over the place again at the back. I know a lot of people would disagree with me, but I still think it was a mistake not bringing someone like Hargreaves to add some defensive cover in the midfield; lack of match fitness or not he'd do something, as opposed to Barry who's lost the ball consistently, and this time, damagingly.

4-1, surely there's no way England can recover from this. On the point of the disallowed goal again, until Germany got #3 England were the best team by a mile because they felt cheated and were fighting for an equaliser, I just wonder if the goal had been given would they have allowed themselves to slip back to old habits and wind up being beaten convincingly anyway.

3 goals up is when heads drop all around, so i think this is over.
And we can talk about "morale" and the ghost goal all day long, bottom line, England's defence was broken from minute 1. The odds of defeat for England were sky high, and nothing's been done to fix it as of yet.
Frankie's pretty much alone in being an okay-ish defender, and even he has to roll up and support the attacking players, which means Ozil's made two of the most orgasmic assists i've seen in this whole WC.

I really don't want to see Capello or Rooney slated by the media for this though, it happens every time and it just disgusts most people as far as I've experienced.

It's a shame we couldn't have lost to a slightly less embaressing scoreline.

Do you ever wonder what would have happened if England had won the group and U.S had finished second?

I think both would have won the matches.

England would have demolished Ghana in my belief because England plays a style of Football that makes Ghana's speed and power irrelevant.

The U.S.A i believe would have beat Germany because they both play similar games and the U.S do infact have better athletes then Germany the latter is just extremely well organized.

Scott Murray
guardian.co.uk, Sunday 27 June 2010 13.28 BST

"FULL TIME: Germany 4-1 England. England's worst World Cup finals defeat in history is sealed. By all accounts, there was 54 seconds between Matthew Upson's goal and Frank Lampard's crazy ping over the line. Now, it was a disgraceful decision not to allow that goal, and if it was given much might have changed. But it effectively means that England played well for 54 seconds out of 90 minutes. A terrible show, and an especially pathetic defensive performance."

As an Englishman, I'd like to say well done to Germany for winning the match. It doesn't bother me how bad England were, it's just a game at the end of the day. Better luck next time England.

It's a shame that because we got beaten so badly, instead of like 2-1, that they'll just try and ignore the mistake by the ref and go "well it didn't matter anyway". That shouldn't matter, it's a clear sign that they need to change things.
