    Glad Germany won it, they should have had a penalty which would have made it a different game. I can't bring myself to like turkey after their anti-football in the previous rounds.

    Surely you mean previous finals? Even then I'm not quite sure what you're getting at.

    If there was any natural justice Turkey would be in that final.

    :confused: No, turkey in the previous rounds of this competition. They had only been in the lead for something like 9 minutes in 4 hours of football.

    If you think an indication of anti-football is the brevity of time that a team has the lead then I've got to conclude that you don't know much about the game.

    You mean let's ignore the scoreline and get a jury to decide who wins?
    I can see that catching on.

    aye. I'm getting pretty pissed off with John Motson's exclamations of surprise about every little detail. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Natural justice would surely have needed Turkey to get two last minute goals to win.

    No, but it is an indication of the cynical style of football they played.

    No, natural justice is about who played hardest, who risked the most, who had the most chances. As you know.

    Fantastic game. Gutted Turkey didn't win it as firstly, I had them on the sweepstake, and secondly, they have been great in this tournament!

    C'mon Spain!!

    Especially as the lion isn't indigenous to the UK. What about three badgers on my chest?

    That's like Frank Warren taking over as head of UEFA and letting Germany pick Andorra to play in the final.

    Silva This went well.

    Very entertaining match, although neither side played as well as in the quarter finals. A lot of foaming at the mouth over here for Germany progressing, but I think that's mostly because the turks had more balls than Portugal ever had.

    Did anyone caught don't-know-who-was getting the top of his head stapled in front of the cameras? It's Jaap Stam being sewn during the match in front of everyone all over again :D

    If Russia get past Spain, I think they just might tear Germany to shreds in the final. :)

    balls, had germany correct score at 3-1 or turkey to progress ultimately to final as my wagers, so both up shit creek as well :(

    Gingerman Is a great bunch of lads.....

    Sky Sports News are such cunts,did'nt show the goals and didn't feature the game as their main headline news,just because England weren't involved I suppose:mad:Ive noticed they have been downplaying the whole Euro2008:hmm:

    I fucking slept through this. Got up at 3am to watch it and fell back to sleep :mad:
     
  30. bbc world haven't managed to show the highlights from any game on their regular news bulletins. you have to be content with a screenshot of the scores and a comment on the games by the presenter. Not Good.
