His rep is tattered so he doesnt get a lot of frees he should. He was getting better then half way through the year he started all over again. Nani is just as bad.
Its the sad state of football at the minute im afraid and i partly blame it on the ref's. Fouls are given way to easily these days, about 10 years ago in the EPL 80% of the fouls that are called today would be put down to good old physical contact. If players believe that if they go down at the slightest touch they will get a free kick then they aer going to do it. Ref's need to make a stance.
As for Ronaldo, everything in the papers on the news today has him jumping ship to Real Madrird in the next couple of days, if he demands a transfer, United could put him in the stands for the next 3 years lol or they could jus sell him and move on.
Well, what else is new? Portugal lost against an inferior squad because of the two main *******s: ricardo and scolari.
scolari is such a dumb bitch. Why, oh WHY is that dumb **** Ronaldo marking Klose on the second goal??? I mean, Ronaldo couldn't guard a post. Just because he's kind of tall?? Pathetic.
ricardo is...well, ricardo. At least he's hilarious. He looked like the fat kid in grade school on the third goal. Defending with his eyes closed. Brilliant. We'll never win anything as long as ricardo is our keeper. Just AWFUL.
At least that idiot abramovich gave scolari a contract. Well done.
Now, I'm going to root for russia and holland. **** spain and **** them lucky no-talent pale germans asses.
Going to keep an eye on Croatia, too.
To be fair to Scolari i don't think Ronaldo was supposed to have him, it appeared at the outset of the free kick that Carvalho was supposed to but he got dragged into the near post and Ronaldo saw the run too late, was bad defending in general not just from Ronaldo.
Turkey done it again!!!, man what a game, I can't believe we won, I thought we were finished, I threw my tv remote against the wall & broke it, lol...I doubt we'll win next game, Germany's a great club, if we lose I won't be so mad, I'm happy enough to know that we came this far.
Was a great comeback by the Turks, how many of there players will be missing from the game against Germany though? I hope they beat Germany but i can't see it, but then i didn't think they would beat the Czechs or the Croatians so anything can happen.
Holland v Russia tonight and then the big one Spain v Italy tomorrow
Emre Aşık, Tuncay Şanlı, Volkan Demirel and Arda Turan are all suspended for the match v. Germany and Nihat seems to be injured now, so he probably wont play. Hooray for the Germans in the final. Boo to the Turks losing. Sad day in Turkey.
Russia are beating Holland 3-1 with about 1 minute to go. Great result for the Russians.
I'm still sticking with Spain to win it all though.
cannot believe it, Russia r fking on fire. i reckon they will win the whole thing the way they r playing. They have been the best passing team in the whole tournament. To be fair to Holland they had a few great chances that Ruud would normally put in the back of the net. Robben on the bench and didnt come on? jeez massive call Van Basten.
In regards to Portugal i think its been a tad harsh on Scolari. You can only do what u can with a avg squad. They were in a avg group and that perhaps made us believe they were better then what they really are. A team of a few star players but a very avg defence. Germany r great at set pieces and they got 2 goals from them.
i cant wait for Spain and Italy, Spain really need to win to help get rid of the choker tag but they way this tournament is going i think Italy r a shoe in lol.
All the faves r crashing out like 9 pins.
Also in regards to the Italy Spain match, Spain are very small compared to Italy so if they get some set pieces i think players like Toni are going to have a lot of chances. Spain are younger and faster but Italy are stronger and have the winning mentality. Italy r missing Pirlo and Gattuso so that def helps Spain but i think De Rossi can step up and do the job in the middle.
Spain havent helped their cause with making comments off the pitch that could only fire up the Italians. Aragones made a comment saying that if Gattuso is a great player then he is a priest. Aragones is a racist prick and deserves to be beaten to death. a tad harsh but fk him and his opinions. I want Italy to win now and get Aragones the sack.
I can't believe the Dutch's lost, they've been, arguably, the best team in this year's European Championships thus far, but I guess anything can happen right? Congrats to the Russian fans, that Arshavin kid is good, I heard he was going to Arsenal?
Germany vs. Spain, final, just what I think
