    Which game was the best?

    For me it was Uruguay V Ghana, it was fast, exciting, with lots of end to end action and the most dramatic finale (even if it didn't turn out how I wanted).

    hate to say it but when we discussed this in the pub last night my overiding thought was that there was not one classic the whole tournament. i could barely even pick a stand out tbh.

    not a great world cup imo.

    Third place play off was good. I agree though, not many great games of end to end stuff. Some good performances from teams. Argentina most of the tournament. Germany against England and then Argentina were good performances. Out of 64 games though it's pretty shabby to be struggling to think of even a few good contests.

    That was the only stand-out, fantastic game for me too. It will certainly be remembered and spoken about for many years to come. :cool:

    toblerone3 Grrrrr

    Holland versus Brazil (2-1) was good although the goals were of poor quality.

    Uruguay were involved in two quality 2-3 defeats to Holland and Germany as well as the extraordinary Ghana match.

    England Germany was nearly a good match. If only the second goal that England scored had stood. As it was it was too one-sided. Germany versus Argentina was also too one-sided, but both matches were amazing results from the German point of view.

    I can't think of a single group stage match that was good. :(

    England v Germany.

    Classic.

    In fact the whole England campaign was glorious.

    Slovenia 2 USA 2 was quite good

    Slovakia 3 Italy 2 I watched but I've forgotten it already despite the clear Italian Schadenfreude element to it.

    They were all good games. The Slovakia - Italy Game would have been the best if the whole game had been as exciting as the last 10 minutes.

    Germany's destruction of Australia, England and Argentina were all great to watch, but I'm not sure they were great games. Ghana-USA was pretty interesting; Ghana dominate the first half, USA the second, and then Ghana take control in extra time.

    for me, it was Engand beating Slovenia 1-0 - being in the stadium probably helped! Even though we should have scored more, it was a great party, a fantastic atmosphere in the stadium and we went home happy.

    We listened to the Italy v Slovakia game on the radio cos we were travelling at the time and that sounded like a great game. Argies getting beat by Germany was great fun too - in a pub full of English people all supporting the Germans!

    Lol :D

    Don't know who said it here, but it summed up my feelings perfectly at the time & I've since pilfered it.

    Think it was along the lines of "I'm finding it harder and harder to hate the German team, but easier and easier to hate the English one"

    I still find it extraordinary England were favourites (in that match vs Germany) on an international trading exchange like Betfair.
