The British TV versus Irish TV comments when England are playing are just :rofl:


Half-time. Fantasy World Cup Punditry, all of them in the one studio. Ready?

Hansen: “Once England got the goal the confidence levels surged, they were excellent.”

Eamon Dunphy: “They just didn’t grow in confidence at all after the goal.”

Lineker: “The goal really settled them, didn’t it? They pushed on from there.”

Ronnie Whelan: “You’d think they’d have kicked on from when they scored, but they actually got worse.”

Roy: “England’s crossing has been absolutely outstanding.”

Giles: “Some of the crossing was just awful.”

Shearer: “Rooney looks more confident, he’s getting around the pitch a lot better.”

Dunphy: “It’s shocking to see Rooney so subdued, he’s been reduced to a shivering wreck.”

Shearer: “They look much more comfortable on the ball, they’re passing it with a purpose, with pace, they’re closing down – a much better performance, it’s encouraging.”

Giles: “They’re much better than they have been, but they couldn’t have been worse.”

No arguments, then. Second half. England held on. Full-time. Ready?

Lee Dixon: “A great performance.”

Dunphy: “Shocking . . . absolutely incredibly bad . . . pretty awful stuff.”

Hansen: “The commitment was there, the spirit was there, the enterprise was there, the creativity was there, they passed it better – they could have scored five or six quite easily. Capello will obviously be delighted with the performance.”

Giles: “If that’s the shackles off what’ll they be like when the shackles are back on?”

’Arry Redknapp: “We played with pace, we got after them, we pressed them, there wasn’t a weakness in the team.”

Dunphy: “They were astonishingly poor.”

Lineker: “He looked more like the Rooney we know.”

Ronnie: “Rooney is a major worry, his form, his body language, his demeanour, everything.”

Dixon: “Gerrard was outstanding.”

Dunphy: “I can’t believe how bad Gerrard was today.”

’Arry: “Across midfield we were top drawer.”

Giles: “Barry got worse as the game went on, Milner, Gerrard and Lampard the same.”

’Arry: “Bring it on! Whoever we play we’ll be difficult to beat.”

Ronnie: “If they don’t improve they’ll go straight out, it was a very, very inept performance.”


:rofl:

Congratulations to Japan and a nice win. Still hard to believe those two free kick goals from Japan. I believe that is a first for the World Cup. Congratulations to the Dutch as well for their win over the Cameroon. Let's see if this is the year they go all the way. Netherlands faces Slovakia while Japan will play Paraguay.

I think I now know who I want to be knocked out first. Germany can stay until the 1/4 :P

Oh, Italiaaaaaaa :wuzrobbed
I didn't watch the game, I thought I could but after seeing the first goal I decided it was too much for my nerves (and besides I was in Switzerland (and almost bought myself a Swiss t-shirt :D and had a train to catch)
I have no desire whatsoever to read any newspaper today (and I don't watch a lot of TV anyway) :( I can't believe they couldn't beat Slovakia or even draw!!! That's insane. Now watch Slovakia drawing with Netherlands and going to penalty kicks, screwing another one of my favourites...:scream:

I'm starting to think that England under Capello has turned into a sort of an Italian team - starting slowly, playing ugly...May be that could be the key for their success? In any case, England vs Germany could be the first serious match of this championship...
