    Was just listening to Fighting talk on R5L and this was one of the questions.

    Couple of the answers were


    I suppose you could add every French player including Thierry Va-Va-Voom but he was arguably finished anyway.

    Any others who came in with a load of hype and now have to go home and pick up the pieces?

    And also Scholari isn't exactly coming into the Premiership in a blaze of glory. Instead he's coming in with a clown of a right back called Boswinga.

    Mario Gomez, Luca Toni, Luka Modric :D .

    But Gomez and Toni are still in the tournament. The latter must surely score sometime but if not he'll be near the top of the fail list.

    All the greece players.

    kained&able Here for the football.

    Modric has been class bosingwa looks good as well. but he will be shit though.

    Okay lets see. Makele, thuram, cech, Ronaldo,toni, benzemma(or whatever the frecnh lyon strikers name is).

    Dirty Martini gets what he cant want

    Bit unfair to the 20-year-old wunderkind who played one and a half games in a shit team ...

    Agree with you on Toni, though. Great season for Bayern, but he looks so leaden-footed at this tournament.

    He'll get skinned by any team with a good left winger. I'm looking forward to a couple of Petrov assists against Chelsea. In fact I'm looking forward to the Chelsea implosion. Scholari to be on the beach in Rio by Christmas day:D

    The entire English defence, because I've never seen them as comfortable on the ball as the majority present in Austria and Switzerland.

    But they haven't let a goal in all tournament;)

    Cech and Gomes.

    I expected Thuram etc to be shit. Modric has been pretty good IMO.

    I overheard a bloke on the train today saying he hadn't been impressed with any of the defences at Euro 08, "but obviously England's defence is the best in Europe". i'm glad i'm not the only one who thinks that's utter bollocks.
  14. Balbi

    Balbi Hey, Dean Yager!

    Boularouz. His reputation as a useless hoofing bastard with the defensive capabilities of the Maginot Line has dived, to reveal a fairl decent defender who played tonight despite suffering a lot this week.

    i had to read that 3 times before i got what you were actually saying, i thought you were being ridiculously harsh at first. :oops:

    Worth 16 million?

    Considering Javier Mascherano is worth £17 million, then yes, why not.

    I'm fucking pap at football, but that should rate me at around £2 million if anyone wants me.

    It's hilarious, isn't it. You'd hope the England players might be watching the matches in the hope of learning something, but they're all on yachts enjoying their Sunday roast. With exception of Owen Hargreaves possibly.

    I half agree with the first part, because some of the marking at set pieces has been woeful. Whether English defenders would be any better is highly debatable, but my original observation was that many defenders at the Euros seem very comfortable with the ball at their feet and not looking just hoof it, as an Englishman tends to do.

    I guess we can console ourselves with the fact that we didn't lose on penalties this time. :)

    You beat me to it refused. Also, all the italian players for that matter except grosso.
