Holland: Not Quite as good at football as I thought

22 Jun

Well, that sucked yesterday.  Holland just completely outplayed by the barnstorming Russians.  At least they lost to a team that played lovely fluid attacking football, would have doubly sucked for them to lose to a bunch of bodgers who stuck 10 men behind the ball at all times and hoped for a corner or free kick (a la Greece).  But they still lost, which is ass.

Spain is my only hope now.  Hope they manage to do the business against the Italians today, but given my record so far I’m not too optimistic.

    Well it was a close run thing. It looked like that a tournament that started off with all the sides playing good attacking positive football winning was going to be turned into another parade of “the great teams grind out a result even when they play badly” events i.e. witness current world champions. Russia vs Spain should be a cracker (kiss of death, cue two hours of scoreless grinding followed by penalties).

    OK that made no sense, I was talking about the Spain-Italy game
