As I suspected and said all along, the first decent team to have a proper go at that German defence ripped them a new one. They were woeful and it was hugely amusing seeing them seeing their "destiny" blow up in their faces. Arrogant gets. 16 years and counting now...

Our 0-0 looks a better result now than it did on Sunday...
:wink:

Well it will be almost definitely 20 at least, because they won't win in Brazil.
Mind you, we can beat that by thirty ...... :(

Sounds like their actually trying to go for a gold then. What's point playing players just for the sake of it when theirs better players than whats from those countries? If that was the case Beckham would have been picked!

Dont think sports like football and tennis should be in the Olympics so cant say I'm bothered whether or not the Scots, Irish or Beckham plays.

I am curious as to how the players will prepare for a tournament that co-incides with pre season. Will they treat it as a normal pre season tournament where games are fitted in amongst the endurance training? Or will Pearce try to get them to come from the beach and then try to peak for the tournament? Could be the potential for a few muscle injuries if they dont get it right.

Fancied Italy to do well right from the start:

Just put a bet on italy to win the tournament.

I think they'll beat germany in the semi final 2-1 with balotelli leading the way, then play spain in the final


Ok, you got me, the second line i added in. In the original post on page 15 (i think) i predicted germany and italy to contest the final depending on the seeding.

I admire the italians alot.

They just get the business done don't they? They come into these major tournaments and no one really ever raves about them, they normally have 1 or 2 world class players in their ranks, they come out, normally start with a few scratchy draws and just grow into the tournaments.

They've won more world cups than any other european team and would have more than any team full stop had it not been for a certain roberto baggio penalty in 94.

They've contested a major final every 6 years since 94....and of course, the germans can't beat them either :D

I quite like their style of football as well, though i can't put my finger on it. It's not high tempo or fast paced, it's not too direct, they are not overly defensive despite their reputation, but they play more direct than spain.

They just seem to wait for the right moments and then play the killer passes.

If only england could be like this.....

Germany didn't change their style whatsoever as far as I could tell, just tinkered with their personnel.

For all the merits of Germany's play, and intent, they don't have the ability to control the game like Spain, and Italy, can.


It's a young team and work in progress, they will learn and get better in the coming years.

All these smarmy smug comments about germany, they are in a much better position than england are.
