    It wouldn't be good. Turkey are one of th emost boring sides in the tournament. It's a shame they've come so far. They've only had the lead for about 2 minutes altogether in this tournament (fact).

    yep although having said that, germany and russia are my two favourite teams, i will be happy if either of those two win!

    I had Germany vs Italy.
    So it'll be Germany vs Russia.

    Spain almost bottled it tonight, and that Torres is one of the best players in the world after Ronaldo;););)

    Aye, outplayed them so well that they didn't score in 90 minutes or in extra time. :rolleyes:

    No they didn't. It was 0-0 you numpt, meaning factually and definitively they did NOT outplay them They were better at penalties.

    it was 0-0 cause italy had 11 men behind the ball Spain tried to score, italy didnt, simple as. you're obviously biased to italy and didnt watch the game.

    there was no score- but russia had far more open play and direct shots from start to finish.....no comparison they will get slaughtered i reckon;)

    Anyway, italy are out cause they didnt attack enough despite the talent they had. Spain created the better chances, and many more than italy did, all that matters is, italy are out, thank fuck! Germany v spain final i bet.

    So you really think Roberto Donadoni sat the squad donw and said we're going to play for penalties tonight so don't bother trying to score.

    Italy played to their resources which in the end turned out to be pretty poor.


    I was biased to Italy but they were pretty crap.

    I of course didn;t watch the game. What's the point? I get everything i know from the internet:rolleyes:

    DRINK? bummed by karmachameleon

    Spanish and the germans.....would like russia to win it, though by the same token I am in Spain next week, so could be interesting, watching them do it!!! Not fussed really, not a big fan of turkish football (fans etc), not that enamoured with the germans either but don't really care.....lets hope football is the winner:)

    Spain were blatantly the better team, more possesion of the ball, more shots at goal ... a very well deserved win :D

    But with Gattuso and Pirlo out, Italy obviously didn't have much talent and if they did they were past their peak. OK, it was only 2 years ago that the same bunch won the World Cup but that was a bit flukey and wouldn't have happened if Zidane hadn't been such a ridiculous arse.
     
  23. frogwoman

    frogwoman лягушкая женщина

    Italy shouldn't have won that time IMO

    I'll turn that round and say they couldn't use their possession and couldn't shoot very well.

    Spain were crap as well as Italy.
     
  25. frogwoman

    frogwoman лягушкая женщина

    yep they were crap ... they were just better than italy :D
     
  26. twistedAM

    twistedAM Left Of The Dial

    They played crap and I thought they'd lose and then there was that moment of absolute brilliance from that eejit Zidane, the game turned and Italy took their penalties that night and beat a team more interested in adverts and image rights.

    Va Va Voom
     
  27. twistedAM

    twistedAM Left Of The Dial


    No...they took better penalties. At the end of 120 minutes they were both so fucking dire they didn't score. They could have played til now and they wouldn't have.

    toblerone3 Grrrrr

    I'll go for that one, but three out of four of my predictions for the winners of the quarters turned out to be wrong, so confidence is low. :oops:

    soulman is no more...

    I reckon it will be Spain v Germany. Although Russia v Germany would have some real edge to it.
