Just now realized: Costa Rica will get Greece. A horror last 16 match.

Very underwhelming indeed.

I was happy we went through until I realized I'll have to sit through one more of our matches.

Wow Greece surprise again (IMG:style_emoticons/default/king.gif) congrats dst!


Not sure if the semi finals will include a team outside of south america, as things are progressing, it seems the south americans are a step ahead; dare I say the climate as an advantage?

Still don't get how people feel aggrieved by Marchisio's red-card...


The SOB was looking for an excuse to send an Italian off. it's plain to see the refs favor SA teams because almost every dubious decision has gone their way.

Actually it would, and if you don't value your mother enough to defend any attack against her then...I'll stop before I say something I regret here.

No it wouldn't. Do you go around biting people? Just asking because your defence of it imo is simply astonishing.

And I can assure you that I would defend my mother, but biting is the last thing that would ever cross my mind FFS! But I'm not on a football pitch, in the real world I'd give someone a KO for doing that, but during a game a professional player needs to control his temper simple as, because the weak minded are the ones who are pin pointed by the opposition as the weak links in the side who can be provoked into doing something stupid. Suarez is one of those. Just like Balo is.

Many players will tell you that the things said on the pitch to each other are down right despicable at times, but do you see players biting each other every day? No.

Lots of interesting comments :-)

FWIW ...

Did not see the game, but did see replays. I do not believe Marchisio deserved the RC (yellow, maybe, red no).

FIFA should come hard on Suarez. There is no excuse for what he has done, really, none whatsoever. If it was up to me, one year ban from all professional competitions, or at least 6 months ban from all international competitions. Let's see if FIFA has any guts. (If I feel bad for anyone, it is Liverpool, who stuck by this ingrate.)

I believe Prandelli did the right thing resigning, as did Abete. At the end of the day, it is not the referee's decisions that caused Italy's downfall. Rather, the team played badly in two games and won another by a thin margin, so we deserve to be out. I understand that the talent pool these days is not what it has been in the past, but Prando could have picked better players and then could have made better tactical decisions with the players he had. As for Abete, IMHO he has not done much of anything to help Serie A improve its competitiveness, so I am not too sorry to see him leave.

The question is who will be the replacement. Apparently, FIGC needs to decide quickly, as Italy starts qualifiers in September. Albertini is being mentioned as Abete's possible replacement, which is probably ok. As for Prando, names mentioned include Mancini, Allegri, Spalletti, Zaccheroni, and Guidolin (though Mancini and Spalletti may be too expensive). What do y'all think of Guidolin?

EDIT: apparently Ranieri was already contacted and declined (link).

Agreed. Many pro players talk trash during games, so they should be used to getting insulted. And if we condone biting, where do we draw the line? Is it ok for a player to gut his opponent if he feels insulted? Really ...

And if Suarez is indeed a psyco (as has been stated), then even more reason to ban him until he gets proper treatment. Having psychological issues is not an acceptable excuse, IMHO.

You said 'take a chunk' - I assumed that meant rhetorically to attack. I certainly would do that. Bite, no.

As you said before, let's agree to disagree. We work better that way.

Messi has shone brightly here. Fair play to him I questioned him internationally but he's shoved that right back in my face at the moment.

On the other hand the Spice boy is more interested in his haircuts.

One point blank blast and one admittedly fine free kick. He's done nothing to persuade me he's better than Ronaldo or Neymar. He seems unable to produce anything deeper, doesn't create or penetrate.

Ronaldo just isn't fit at the moment.

PS one of the haircuts was ALLEGEDLY a homage to a young boy who underwent brain surgery - the Z on the hair mimicking the scar. It is a fact Ronaldo did pay for the child's surgery, but that was in March, so how true the tribute story is I'm unsure.

His surgery is/was one of these days.

I thought he just got a #7 put into his hair if I'm being honest from looking at it. Could be wrong obviously.
