Lmao I've got my uncle saying if we didn't have a foreign coach.

Nah but whilst I think we were totally cheated with that second goal (and it could of changed our own mentality), you gotta hand it to the Germans. Well done.

That being said, I'd want the Argies to win if they face them :)

Oh god fuck no. Fuck the Argies. In the ear. Germany legitimately kicked our arse and deserve to win with those last two goals.

That ref is still a dead man walking though. Wanker.

Re: English fans and media, sports.

To put it brief:

I obviously don't like the way that misaimed right-wing rants (with side orders of thinly-veiled racism) are popularised anymore than the majority of you guys, though it needs to be taken lightly in some cases - you just learn to ignore the worst of it here. In a moment of optimism, the fans used to be arguably much worse in general. Chew that one over for a second.

But yeah, it's not all of us (though we on the outside do welcome it as a humourous stereotype most of the time). Just to push a mild agenda, I ponder that it might be particularly rash right now due to the recession. Recession does not cool tabloid headlines make.

And it's stuff like this that make me despair over the Olympics in '12. Ugh.

Somewhat fair point, haven't all world cup winners had native coaches?

It must help communication

With us I'm not sure if it makes a difference.

I mean look at Steve McClaren :P

Changing the topic, what's your bet for Mexico vs Argentina?

I'm mexican and, of course, i want Mexico to win. I think we have players that might be able to do some damage to their "slow" defense.
We must take Messi out of the game, if we dont, we're dead. And we must take care from Milito, Tevez, Higuain....I know this sounds difficult on paper, but we must stay optimistic and, hopefully,make history.

What do you guys think?

Well, it's a long story, and it's not really relevant to football... at all, really. In short, it's more to do with my personal priorities and the 'national priorities'. London will probably be even more of a no-go area regarding oppurtunities, except for big limited ones, that will be tied to the games. The media and so on just create an awkward backdrop for that.

I don't know, I'm getting ahead of myself, eh.

Looking forward to Argentina-Mexico now!

England's defense was bad in the first half, and in a complete panic in the second. Guess Capello didn't manage to get through to 'em during half-time...a shame.

Not saying that England deserved to win (though they were pretty damned good at the end of the first half and the beginning of the second)...but damn, you can't do that kind of damage to a team that's fighting to re-open the game just because you feel that "Video Replay would rob soccer of its spirit and cheapen it".

Seriously, who knows what could've happened, if they'd managed to tie before half-time? The sheer psychological effect can change the outlook of the game, ESPECIALLY if both teams mull it over for ten minutes before getting back on the field.

Bah. As per usual, this will change absolutely nothing. Not sure if ANYONE is a fan of Blatter and Platini in this Cup (the fat, useless, incredibly conceited bastards), or the rest of FIFA for that matter.

Ah well. Sorry for the English supporters, for Capello, and above all for Rooney. Knowing the British press, he's going to get slammed tomorrow morning...and all for being incapable of pulling a rabbit out of a hat and scoring enough goals to keep England in the Cup.


Pure awesomeness. You must read it.

Too close to call I'd say. Sensible money is on Argentina but if the group stages have shown us anything, it's that nothing is a safe bet these days... (except England losing to Germany).

I'd like Mexico to win. Being Scottish I generally support the underdog and they were quite impressive in their group matches. They definitely showed that they have the potential to go far.

Actually, scratch that. I've just remembered I have a bet on Argentina to win...

I vote for Argentina (nothing against Mexico, though). I like how Maradona is making an actual contribution to the team as coach, rather than just sitting there like a crazy, drugged-up mascot like a lot of folks thought he'd be before the first few games.

I would like to point out now NOT EXPENSIVE it is to stick some cheap ass laser underneath the pitch which can read if the goals passed or not in a fraction of a second.

Either that or we watch the replay. FROM ANOTHER ANGLE!

Agreed, I've only watched 1 game on ITV so far because I just couldn't put up with them.

Anyone else disappointed to see Ian Wright off the analysis team? I wanted to see him cry again when England got put out...

I missed that match sadly. I had a noon binge and was passed out come kick off. But the BBC Commentary today were bitter speculative little cunts. It pains me that my TV licence money goes towards their pay.

They should just let Mick McCarthey commentate on every game. He could make poetry sound like a list of building materials.

I don't know about Argentina vs. Mexico, but I have a feeling Mexico will take this one. Maybe it's because I'm Brazilian and Argentina is our long-time rival, but Maradona is too snobby, and Mexico has a pretty good team. Depends on how Argentina will come into play...

Oh God, our coach is handing in the game again, just like 8 years ago. Bautista is on the starting team. He was a really critisized player. He hasn't done anything to be there, he wasn´t even playing on his team before the world cup. He isnt even in a good shape. Let's hope he knows what he's doing.
