and hugh, brown, nobody cares about your emoness and negativity. Spain is champion of the world for the first time.... woooooooo.... !!! take this word for word and digestt it.. N-O-B-O-D-Y C-A-R-E-S--- for real and normal fans, this was a great tournament, if you wanna look at the down side, then go aheadd, for the normal good real fans, this was a great world cup, and we are sad its over..
This was a great tournament up to the final, not to put words in anyone's mouth but in brown's last post he seemed to be of the same opinion.
pan- This would be correct. I know I should make my post more clear at times since people without English as their first language can sometimes take things literal. What I said about the the Germany vs Uraguay game wasn't a jab at the whole WC, I was basically saying that is the way a final should be played.
I think you think I'm defending the dutch more than I am as well. The dutch got the worse of it (since they lost) and I have stated I was thinking they would win so that is an understandable conclusion. That said look at some of the post I've made about teams I actually care about, I won't talk about a game being crap just because the team I wanted to win didn't. Don't believe me? See what I posted when the only team I really care about in the WC was knocked out:
USA deserved the loss. The "never give up" spirt only goes so far, at some point we'll have to make it longer than 15 minutes before conceding a goal. I hope the US starts rebuilding instantly. Out with any player that won't be realistic for the next WC. That includes Bocanegra, DeMerit, and others for sure. I think Landon and Dempsey should stick around but if they start slacking they should be dumped. Sounds harsh but winning friendlies with players who won't be in the next WC is a waste of time. Out with the old in with the new.
They lost, I was pissed, but there wasn't anything to complain about other than the USA's quality.
With this final it's not the team that won that has me pissed, it wasthe quality of the game on all fronts.
Also your jabs really do get annoying, I usually ignore them but truthfully it just makes you look like a douche to everyone.
Ok - thanks for sounding more human and less partial..
About the last part.. You need to understand "my jabs". I talk to people in the streets... "oh what i sick match, did you see that one pedro almost scored, spain really played well, outplayed the rival, etc, etc".. I turn on the TV, Espn, the analysts go "Well Spain really diserve the win, they came to play football, while the other team decided to counterattack, and played "not to loose" instead of winning"... The few negatives of the gamee are mentionedd for a short time.. But people focuss on the positives, which is most of the game, cause we really love football, and if you love something, you enjoy watching it, and you have fun watching it. You don't need 13 goals, the whole experience is a positive one. I love watching Spain pass, I'm a player, I know what they are doing is risky, I know its not easy, I know the pressure they undergo, I know these things. I enjoy dribbles, I enjoy crosses, change of directions, receiving, good touch, awesome shots, attacking football . All around my circle, and all around the world, news, sites, etc, the world cup is positive.
Here, if germany or holland doesn't win its..... "iniesta is a diving cheater flopper" ...... ."that game was super boringg, the only game i enjoyed was the uruguay-germany game" - etc, etc, but not once, you gett post after posts, each packed with 10 different complains, whines, and bitching.-
Its freaking annoying, leads me to think why you watch the sport after all, if you complain so much, I think you can go watch another sport that you don't care about the diving(when everybody does it, not proper but learn to cope with it), so really, don't talk about annoying, cause i've been having to deal with it all freaking world cup. quite complaining. learn to be more impartial, and enjoy the game. While on EF, I might look like a douche for posting positive stuff about the games, and about football because at the end of the day thats why I watch it, to enjoy it, and have positive experiences (fun), and disagreeing with those who complain about "boredness" of a world cup semi-final(are you kidding me?) in the real world the mayority of fans that have watched football for long enough would agree with me.
About puyol's "bearhug" .. the play continued, either you have the chance, or you have the foul, not both??? also, if you where to sanction this, every corner, you have to call a foul like 5 times. Webb made no mistake in that play.
