Ghana - a last minute 'gift from God' and they didn't nail it - wonder if it would have been any different had Essien been there?

I'm still chuckling about the fact that Brazil haven't won anything since 1994 - the worst final of all time - when they won on penalties. And yet they have pretty much consistently been FIFA's #1 national rank team since then.

maybe it's not England that are that bad, after seeing the Argies get a beat down too.

Germany are just that good.

I think Germany will beat Argentina 4-0, and Paraguay and Spain will win 1-0 with a couple of missed penalties.

Maybe reactionary media commentary is too strong these days? I was reading a very strong argument a few days ago about the resurgence of South American nations and that this has proven to be their WC over Europe. 2 days later and the last 4 are 3 European and 1 South American nation.

I think England are bad at some things, and seem to choke in tournaments. But yeah, Germany clearly are just that good.

Schweinsteiger - player of the tournament so far?

having discussed with Tom earlier, and I know he's not here to defend himself. I think we're a good team with a bottlers attitude........ the media driven pressure to perform is well..... idiotic. we're either world class or 3rd world.

we're mediocre. and I am actually ok with that.


I think donovan has a strong case for player of the tournament still

Klose for me......... well he's the opposite of steven gerrard isn't he. Put him in a club shirt and he's a sunday league player. Stick a german jersey on him and he's Gerd *****ing Muller.

Big piece in the Sunday papers today about Ashley Cole - apparently he was texting a girl minutes before England's big games asking her to engage in 'sex talk' and to send him naked photos of herself - imagine that! How despicable!

It seems his mind wasn't totally on his football............

These people make me sick. Why didn't she send him some pictures? Doesn't this unamed girl know that she could have cost us the world cup? Why are some women so prudish?

Honestly....

That's an amazing coincidence. I tried to send a picture of a horses' penis to Emile Heskey right before the Algeria game and I'm not sure if it got through or not.
