Wow x4. These Germans are amazing and, for once, lovable. Perhaps it’s because they play – revelation alert! – as a team? All the star vehicles – Ronaldo, Messi, Rooney – have broken down by the side of the road in South Africa, but Germany’s incredible teamgeist only seems to be making them stronger as the tournament progresses. (And by the way, I don’t really care that Argentina took a worse beating from the Germans than England. Big deal.)

I’ll miss Maradona, mind, even if it’s fun as an Englishman to slash around in his tears. He was a lot of fun to watch. Will he quit now? It’s a very long road to Brazil 2014 and I doubt he has the stamina. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

The German machine rolls on, crushing reputations and building new ones as it goes. Can Spain pass through and around such a confident, well-drilled team? I think they can, but Xavi, Iniesta and Torres really need to help out David Villa.

    Rooney pffffff I’m so fucking sick of hearing people putting him along the same line as Ronaldo and Messi. When will the last England fanboy finally wake the fuck up and see what a ridiculously average player Rooney is. And I really don’t give a shit how many hat-tricks he scored against Bolton or Besiktas. In the big games this hairy turd always bottled it. Portugal 06, Croatia 07, Bayern, Germany, always.

    Schweinsteiger is better than Lampard and Gerrard.

    Deckard, I can’t argue with a single word there mate. You hit the nail on the head. The English media and commentators wanking off everytime Rooney touches a ball. This is part of the reason why the Prem is wasting so much money on average players. Idiots that should be on 20,000 a week but because of the over-hype they are on 120,000 a week. These people believe they are quality players. Ha ha ha

    Great shout Deckard

    Thats the reason why the Nazis were defeated by Spain… that eventually would win the cup – as predicted by PAUL…!
