I see that two of the team have taken out "gagging" orders in court
to prevent details of their private lives from being published.
Perhaps their attention, as with T, Woods, was not on the job.

Apparently, the F.A. have stated the next manager of England will be English - thereby finally admitting they've been wrong. This sorry process began with an over-the-border Scottish director, Adam Crozier, appointing a mercenary Swede.

Johan Cruyff commenting on this year's debased Netherland side's performance: "This ugly, vulgar, hard, hermetic, hardly eye-catching, hardly football style, yes it served the Dutch to unsettle Spain. If with this they got satisfaction, fine, but they ended up losing. They were playing anti-football."

Great result, and a very well deserved defeat for a type of football that always deserves to be defeated.

To call that final a great game is quite a stretch. I thought it was dirty on both sides, very little creativity, the single goal was almost two hours in coming, and overall the two sides pretty much canceled each other out. Not a game likely to win converts to the sport.

The third-place match of GER vs URU, now that was a very good game. Played cleanly and professionally and featuring five goals, it was everything the final was not.

Don't blame the octopus! The footballers have much more control over the result. I wonder how much this cephalopodomancy will catch on in other areas.

It was a fair result, after a very difficult match to control. I for one thought that the officials did a great job under very trying circumstances. The De Jong kung-fu kick to the chest was probably an accident, although a very painful one to the recipient. The Dutch complaint that Elia had been blocked off shortly before the Spanish goal was unfounded. Players don't have to get out of opposing players way, and it was an obvious attempt to engineer a free kick or penalty.

So the Dutch slated the referee, the Spanish slated the referee, other referees though he did a good job. I thought he could have sent a Dutch player or two off in the first half, but that would have ruined the game as a spectacle.

The best team won - best by a mile.

The Netherlands players should hang their heads in abject shame for sullying the hitherto-good name of Netherlands football. I imagine they lost quite a few foreign fans last night, me included.

And the Spanish players should be very proud of themselves for the shining example they set of how to resist provocation and answer it with great football skills.

IMHO, of course

So much for the Dutch concept of Total Football - online it's being called Shaolin Football after that high-kicking display by de Jong on Alonso's chest. I've liked the Dutch approach throughout the tournament but they let themselves down badly last night. To Spain's credit they continued to try playing their fluid, passing game in the teeth of Dutch agression - and were deserved winners. Much criticism in some quarters of Howard Webb for not sending off one or even two Dutch players in the first half to halt the 'clogging' but I think he was trying to preserve the spirit of a cup final match and was hoping the Dutch would understand this and calm down a bit. Instead they treated it as a sign of weakness and an excuse to carry on scything down the Spaniards. The football may not have been pretty but well done to Spain for finally getting their hands on the Jules Rimet trophy. Have we more or less finished this thread now? Be interesting to look back at it in 2014.

Rather like 'chips', a biscuit is something which is different in the UK from its USA meaning, gnu. Just as we wouldn't eat US-'chips' with fish, we wouldn't put butter on a UK-biscuit! :-) :-)

But I was feeling like shit and it was getting worse so Karen and I went to the ER where it turned out to be a gall bladder attack......something else in the long string of ailments. But a great thing happened! I had a private room while waiting for tests with a 36" hi-def flat screen, The bed was pretty comfy, the air conditioning was just right and I enjoyed the entire match! The only thing missing was a beer.

Indeed. NED had chances, but, overall, I felt the dirty play by NED was karma in their loss. That may sound hokey, but whether it is or not makes no nevermind. The fact that Spain scored after a lost call by the ref made it all the more "karmatic".

Well done Spain.

hi gnu

I am just tuning in for the game.....it's murder in here....local pub !!! The forecasts here are very close almost a 50/50 split.

I think that the line-ups are more or less as expected. Any team that can afford to leave out Torres and Fabrigas must be very strong.

Spain have a very strong complement of one team in their 11.....Barcelona.

Very close to call.

Ah here comes my pint.....!!

Hi arnie

When I said "we" I really meant Fergie didn't like Howard. Because of some decision he took that worked against Man United.

I am sure that Fergie knows very well that Howard is a very good referee.

In my case it is certainly not because Howard is a Yorkshireman. Although I was born in Manchester my mother was from Barnsley, Elsecar to be exact.

I am looking forward to a good game tonight and I know that Howard and his team will try to encourage that.

Mike - so you don't like Howard Webb at Old Trafford? Could that be because he's a Yorkshireman born and bred? Mind you, he's from Rotherham so almost a Southerner! His dad only flew back from SA a few days ago, and now has had to fly back to see his son referee the final - that's some airmiles. Anyway, good luck to Howard and his team and I hope they don't give any silly decisions that make them public enemy no.1 in Holland or Spain.

Nice to see the English Team have made the final! Pity it's only the officials, but well done to Howard Webb and his team in officiating at matches where there has been very little sportsmanship shown (too much at stake, I suppose). Let's hope that Howard gets to book someone for simulation!

But's it's time for a big clearout at FIFA. They are total control freaks and breadheads. They have screwed South Africa unmercifully. They changed the ball for no other reason than money, and we have been treated to shots over the bar and overhit passes and crosses. They refused to use simple goal line technology (like an assistant ref on the goal line!) on the basis that no everybody could afford them.

So, Paul has gone for a Spain win - he's had a 100% track record this World Cup but somehow I still fancy Holland to upset the form book. Are my instincts more finely tuned than a cephalopod's? Have to wait until Sunday to find out! I think he also predicted that Germany will beat Uruguay tomorrow (Sat) but does anyone care who comes third? I suppose it will provide a last bit of entertainment for the German & Uruguay fans who haven't yet gone home. FIFA should make it free admission as well - today there are reports that many S Africans just could not afford the ticket prices so they watched on tv whilst many stadium seats were unoccupied.

Apparently Paul only does matches featuring Germany. And he's not infallible even there - in the 2008 European Cup he picked Germany to beat Spain in the final, and Spain won.

As for worries about calamares or sushi, Paul's keeper is reported as saying "There are always people who want to eat our octopus but he is not shy and we are here to protect him as well. He will survive."

I have lived in Spain and my sister and my wife's sister still live there so I am biassed.

My partiality remains and I believe that they will go on to win the World Cup for the first time in their history.

Strange how these two footballing nations have never ever met before in the World Cup !!
