In whose universe was that??

They had had more shots on goal than us, but we were holding our own quite well in the first half before the red card thanks!

Totally agree to that Mieke.

True, I am just devestated, especially because I am the only person who still loved him in 2003 after the Carragher thing and to see this happen to him is jsut cruel and I am worried people will make him a scaprgoat.

W/E. I'm going to bed. I would be content to not work up for a while. Trye four years.

Re: World cup is a farse

Well I know Moggi can bribe referees in Serie A, but he must have had some influence here. No, that was not a serious post.

Just like in tennis, the big stars will get favourable decisions in tight moments and this tournament should never be about the referees. The problem is FIFA keep telling them to clamp down on all these things, but there is no consistency and the only consistency is inconsistentcy.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: World cup is a farse

The current management at FiFA which include Sepp Batter and Michel Platini are against inroducing videos for the penalty area. Beckenbauer is contemplating running for President of FIFA next year. He is a reformer and I believe would allows the video to be set up.

Life is empty and meaningless. It is in emptiness that we create possibilities for extraordinary results

They wouldn't want to!!

I don't think they will either. Everyone here in Oz will know the penalty was a load of tripe and couldn't hold him responsible for doing nothing wrong. He's defended brilliantly all tournament to be our best player and the people that matter would have to realise that.

Re: World cup is a farse

Obviously the pace is so slow that they have to stir controversy via officiating.
