I hate Arjen Robben he is one diving B. Robin Van Persie is a cynical cheat.

I hope they get sent of and The Netherlands get a tonking.

I have bunged £50 on Brazil to win and £50 on Germany to loose tomorrow as have a lot of friends and family.
Its the safest win win bet there has ever been in the last 50 years of live sport.

Thank goodness for that. I didn't want anyone to be unsure of my feelings. Oh and I add the Goalkeeper as well. He should have been dismissed in the penalty shoot out for threatening and aggressive behavoir.

I seen it coming but not by that much. I haven't been impressed with Brazil and thought they where lucky to get to the semi final.
Like England they are shite and a total rebuilding job is needed. The same goes to Argentina they flatter to deceive I said when I saw theirs first game they are bad enough to win it.
After England beat Germany 5-1 a few years back, they went away hurt are started to rebuild it shows now they are strong in every position. England thought they had a great side because of that one off win and have been kidding themselves since.
It showed in this World Cup, they where totally out of depth and made a show off themselves. They never let the Nation down because anyone who follows football knew they where crap. The only ones who didn't where the hard nosed supporters who follow them around every where wearing the over priced shirts and St George flags draped around them, blinkered.
The whole structure of the England team needs to be over hauled starting with the sacking of the manager Roy Hodgson.The full board of the FA starting with Greg Dyke.and the retirement of senior players who are now not good enough Gerard, Lampard etc.
There should be a limit on foreign players per team allowing home grown players the chance to break through. The classic example being Jack Rodwell while he was at Everton he was considered one of the best young prospects in England. He gets transferred to Man City and can't get a game because of the influx of foreign players. He should have been in that England side.
