I'd just like to point out that Portugal are the true World Cup winners.

As a crumpet eater I have to express disappointment that we're playing such a strong kicking game. But then if you chaps were beter maybe you'd lock us down!

Why would you express disappointment that you crumpet eating large people are playing such a strong kicking game, when without it, you guys would be screwed?

 

Clarification: The game is not about kicking. Kicking is merely the cream on the trifle or the butter on the crumpet. Simply because you can get full eating butter does not mean that you should.

 

I am annoyed about us being good at kicking because it is covering up the fact that we can't play as a team. Or that we have any real enthusiasm. I've much preferred Argentina this cup. At least they care.

I think not. The Springboks will send them packing.

 

Anyway...

 

Fair enough, Walsingham. I guess in the end, the result is more important than how it is achieved, but to be honest, I'd rather see a team I barrack for lose playing well than win playing poorly, unless the team they beat plays even worse, and in this case, I think England deserved the victory against us in the RWC QF.

 

Actually that's not entirely true. I never like to see any team I barrack for lose, but if they play poorly and their opponents play better but the opponents still lose, than I'd be happy about that, but would be the first to admit that they didn't deserve to win.

I have a friend who supports Chelsea. He takes the Mourinho view that winning is more important than how. It seem Abramovich and I agree that it is not. How you win - at least on a sports field - is at least half the game.

Yeah, but were I a Chelsea fan, I wouldn't even want to watch them play. It's so boring.

 

Then you are left with the knowledge that your team has won, rather than the experience of football itself.

 

The overused term 'not a true football fan' is so accurate there.

Any game that consistently ends with nil-all draws and resorts to penalty shoot-outs to determine the victor isn't particularly fun to watch, anyway. That's my largest complaint against the sport ... that and the professional acting that takes the place of talented play ...

 

It's certainly an interesting final, though. :)

I have to admit that even I, an ex-football player and big fan of the game, even find the matches to be of disappointing quality and entertainment these days. Then again, they don't show much of it on free-to-air tele over here anymore, so that might have something to do with it.

Yeah sorry 'bout the double post, but...

 

Adios for France.

 

It doesn't matter.

 

South Africa or Argentina will win this.

You don't know the chap so you can be forgiven for thinking him not a true fan. Hee's supported Chelsea for over twenty years, long before they became big. And I do understand his point of view. I just don't share it.

Australia beats Japan 91-3... and here I thought NZ-Italy 76-14 was bad.

 

Geez.

Almost as sad as the poor, sad old Kiwi team not even making the quarter finals, after being seeded first AGAIN. :-"

 

The Kiwis did make the quarter finals, actually.

 

Still, I agree with what you're saying.

 

;)
