Are Spain Really Out?

Henry not cheating

It’s been two days, but I still can’t quite believe it. Perhaps the worst French team of my lifetime beating the best Spain team of my lifetime. Not only that, but a Spain that looked well in control of much of the match. I was hoping for big things from them, so I’m very disappointed indeed. Henry claimed he didn’t cheat, despite having gone down clutching his face like an absolute cheating bastard. Try the same thing against Roberto Carlos at the weekend and he’ll give you reason to clutch your face like that.

Earlier in the week the Aussies got dumped out by a cheating Italian sqad. I absolutely hate this Italy team (sorry Giorgia). An odious bunch of cheating feckers, most of whom will be playing in Serie C next season. Haha. Fair play Aussies, you deserved extra time at least. Horribly cruel way of going out, and I can’t help but feel that the big team factor came into the ref’s thinking in awarding that last minute penalty. You think he’d have awarded it at the other end? Heart breaker.

Only three days till England’s decimation of Portugal. Looking forward to that very much, of course. If we don’t turn up for this, we don’t deserve to be here. We don’t really deserve to still be here either way, but let’s not be picky.

Semi final predictions: Sexy Brazil v Boring England, Lucky Against Mexico Argentina v Cheating Italy

Final: Boring England v Lucky Against Mexico Argentina

Winner: Ingurland, obviously

    Unrelated, but damned funny –

    “FIFA, or Federation International the Football Association, is corrupt”…

    Well, no arguments there, obviuously.

    “This website is dedicated to how the FIFA officials screwed the United States soccer team in the 2006 World Cup in Germany.”

    Ummm…

    “It’s clear that FIFA officials did everything within their power to make sure that the USA soccer team did not advance into the second round.”

    That’s right – FIFA hate the USA! That’s why CONCACAF only get four teams in the World Cup – to stop the USA from doing well! Holding the World Cup in the States was just a clever double bluff!

    *dies laughing*

    Yeah, because England & Chelsea fans don’t moan like little bitches when they lose either, eh?

    We have just been pointing out the obvious, there is a conspiracy to stop the England team via dubious means, I present the following incontrovertible proof.

    2002: World cup ball carefully designed to loop over the head of an unsuspecting England goal keeper from a set piece, once could be a fluke but ‘They’ have pulled this one twice now (see 1990)

    1998: Blatant disallowed perfectly legit goal, Sol Campbell vs Argentina, and that was on my birthday.

    1994: Ronald Koeman should have been sent off for being last man, walks up the other end of the pitch and curls one in, England get charged late cancellation fees on flights, start wearing green and cheering on Big Jack.

    1990: Shilton, dodgy looping balls from set pieces, see 2002, nuff said

    1986: Hand of God or theiving paw of a dwarf, let the video evidence decide

    1982: Some Italian feller apparently gave Kevin Keagan the idea that bubble perms were cool and stylish, especially if you flicked them around just in front of the goal

    1978: 70’s nuff said

    1974: Still the 70’s

    1970: Pele slips Gordon Banks a dodgy Burrito

    1966: ‘They’ couldn’t fix it because it was in England and all was fair and square.

    It was not the worst French team ever. In fact, experience spoke more than anything in this game. And you’re right, Henry is a cheating bastard because everybody who plays professional football is honest. (Read Rivaldo’s comments after the Turkey game of the 2002 world cup). Maybe u should continue blogging about golf πŸ™‚

    No, you’re right. The Japan/Korea French team that failed to score a goal and crashed out of the tournament humiliated by minnows was the worst French team ever. A good number of that team are in Germany, incidentally.

    And what exactly does Rivaldo have to do with anything? You’re aware he’s not in the national team anymore, yes? Maybe u should continue blogging about Turkish football πŸ™‚

    rivaldo made a comment after the Brazil-Turkey game of the 2002 World Cup in which his acting skills were deserving of an oscar (you’ll remember he fell to the ground like he was shot, after a ball hit his knee). he said top professional players have to sometimes act to get someone sent off. that’s how this game is played.

    Just because one player cheats, gets away with it and is unrepentant does not mean that it should be ipso facto OK for every other player to cheat. Every player who does cheat should be called on it, taken to task and preferably given some kind of penalty as soon as FIFA start pinging people for simulation off the ball incidents etc the quicker they will stop. They just dont have the balls, also note it is often the top players who are in the spotlight for this because they know FIFA will not sanction them because of pressure from sponsors etc.
