Was a good match to watch overall. The result could have been different, if those lazy italian bums would have started playing seriously before the last 10 minutes of the game. Maybe they weren't in the mood for it or something. Slovakia played a great game, so they deserved the victory.

Thats what I thought too. But he is partly correct I think, just that they have turned so spoiled. So greedy. So demanding that they forgot what football really is about; mainly because all they care about is the 100 million dollar or so they get paid annually.

I think English Football players inconsitent performance is due to the British tradition of amateurism which I have detailed in a previous post and not really related to being payed huge amounts of money.

Its very British to knock those at the top with all their money and fame - footballers, actors, musicians. But imo the fame and riches that top footballers have can make for a lonely life in many ways. Unless they are already grounded with a good group of friends they had before they became famous. They will be stalked by wannabe footballer wives in nightclubs and bars. Predatory sports reporters will be waiting around for them.
Its a surreal bizarre world. Football teams have sports psychologists to try and help the players deal with it all.

Imo the most valuable thing someone has is obscurity. You don't appreciate that until you have lost it. You can be a famous millionaire but your money can't buy back the comfort of obscurity.

I honestly thought Italy would do their usual world cup thing and sc**** thru the group stage then really start to perform, as it stands only Spain or Portugal have shown any real quality but both have4 been poor as well in their opening games, Holland still have to shine as well, the money bet on Italy is gone but I still have cash on Holland and Brazil, also got money on England as I'm English but I'm no where near stupid enough or naive enough to think that bet will pay.

I stand by comments I made in a thread a while back that maybe the quarters or semis if we're lucky would be a good enough world cup for me, but Germany next so maybe not even that. Either way we're far short of quality compared to the rest to win the tournament barring the biggest upset in sport I've seen in my lifetime.

Sucks that it aired before I woke up, but congrats to Slovakia to kicking Italy's ass and making it even better with them being last in the group!

Hard to argue with you there. I don't even like soccer but that's mainly due to living here and having to watch their matches. I really hope the pros start adding instant replay and review.

A really simple solution to this whole "acting hurt" thing would be simply to send off who ever got "hurt" for five minutes. Anything from an outright decapitation to a stubbed toe, if a player has the ref stop play for "getting hurt", then they get sent off, whether they need to see a doctor or not.

This would stop the stupid acting pretty quickly.

Wow, if Portugal goes out the world cup might actually be worth watching.

You don't get it. Remember that South Park episode where the boys play Wrestlers, and they just stand on stage being drama-queens?

Drama makes soccer. Why do you think Rugby (not pansy rugby in full body armor like you yanks play it, I mean MAN rugby) is so much less popular, despite being an infinitely better game? Because there's rarely any O.C. worthy drama.

Well,for Portugal not to pass,they'd have to lose to Brazil tomorrow in big way,and Ivory coast would have to score several goals on North Korea.


Given that Portugal scored 7 goals on North Korea in the last match,which isn't so much winning the match but humiliating the other team when the score is 7-0,the goal differencial between Portugal and Ivory Coast is quite large to overcome....It's not impossible,but the odds are pretty slim just the same.

Actually it needs to be taken a step further. If your injury is the cause of stoppage then you are hurt enough not to return to the game and your team must play a man down till the time where a legal sub can be put in.

Also, add one more center ref to the field and two more line judges to cover all four sides. All with full officiating rights.

Increase the number of reds given for diving and the game will clean itself up real fast IMHO.

Video replay for all goal negation calls. It is fast enough now adays to allow it for the infrequent instances of taking reversing goals.
