    As England fans we understand exactly what the Brazilians are going through - former world cup winners disappointingly going out of the tournament before the final

    Let's not forget: the very first score by Brazil at this World Cup was an own goal.:D

    Well, given that you're welsh, yes, I can see your point. Your nation is shit at every sport they put their hand to. For the average Brazilian tho, I do feel for them. the one one thing they could actually rely on was the national team not being humiliated. And then. Ahhh....

    A dark day.

    Favelado Oh you've got green eyes.

    I really want European teams to keep sticking it to South Americans because I like underdogs.

    Sprocket. Wishing I was back behind bars...

    When Barnsley got onto the Premiership their fans sang ''it's just like watching Brazil''.
    Will the Brazil fans now be returning the compliment:)

    My housemate's a Torquay fan - I told him he should be used to seeing sides in yellow and blue getting pasted.

    What a remarkably ignorant and patronising thing to say. You're not a stupid man, so why post up such drivel?

    Ian Woosnam, Colin Jackson, Ray Reardon. I mean, the list goes on and on.

    It just sounds like you're wishing it upon them, which comes across as a little bitter. I have "no problem" with them feeling a loss, but I do have a lot of sympathy for them precisely because my team has turned in utterly shit performances too and I know what it's like. Less "ha! It's your turn now!" than "yup, been there before, have a hug*".

    I will say though, my response was more a reaction to comments from a few on this thread, you just happened to comment when I had the time to write some of my witterings down ;)





    *this is rhetorical, I don't do touching :hmm:

    Likely as not, free-flowing beautiful attacking football. As if often the case in such situations.

    I think the decision was made somewhere around 23-29 minutes into the game :D

    Watched it again, this time at home, in a quieter setting. Once again I burst out laughing after the third goal, in disbelief. What a game though. And apart from the 20 mins when Brazil colapsed in the first half, they did have a few shots at the goal.

    Amazing game, never to be forgotten. So tragic, emotional and unbelievable!

    same here! I think I had delayed shock. On the day of the game I was at a samba school in Sao Paulo and everyone was just laughing when the fifth went in. Then I went off to a party and no-one even mentioned the game. Probably best thing I did.

    next day I went to street market and everyone was cracking jokes. None of this maudlin nation mourns crap.

    I ignored TV, internet and newspapers and then watched Match of the Day and listened to a load of podcasts - Luiz crying etc. Historic. Really feel for those players.

    Have no idea what to expect when they play the 3rd place game.
