Why, Stu, what a miserable life you must lead if you 'nark off' so easy!

Re that Bobby Charlton goal, Dave: watched it again on YouTube. Very good example of one of those breakthru long runs & shot at the end which turn the crowd on; but hardly rare -- there's one not too different from that on MOTD most weeks. Lacking, tho, in that astonishing nonchalant elegance of that Gazza one.

I think what gets on many Scottish people's nerves a bit is that we watch the World Cup through England's (ie our footballing rivals) eyes. even during the opening ceremony they whittered on non-stop about England. I dare say had it been broadcast by BBC Scotland or STV and Scotland were in the tournament then our commentators etc would be the same. Difference is that the whole of England wouldn't be force fed it too.

The point about Andy Murray is the perfect example of taking things too serious. He was in a press interview with Tim Henman and the interviewer asked him who he'd be supporting as they tended to do to Scots for a while though there has been little of it so far this year. Henman joked "he won't be supporting Scotland anyway as they didn't make it" to which Murray joked back "I'll just support anyone who's playing England". It was all banter but several papers the next day run the story that "Murray hated England" and there was a tirade of both online and offline abuse against him. Even a death threat! Despite both Henman and the journalist himself insisting that they were all just having a good natured banter the story persisted for years. In a documentary last year Murray said that is why he seldom speaks to the press now other than on tennis matters and is very guarded in waht he says.

I think other prominent Scots who are now asked would be very reluctant to even suggest that they might not support England - despite what they really feel. It is daft to think that you can pressurise people into support a particular football team!!

Hi

Was surprised by the performance by Chile. They completely outplayed Spain ( The current holders) in every single department.

They were fitter faster and cleverer than Spain.

I think this was the most physically demanding game I have seen in this competition this year. Chile tackled like tigers and were pressing Spain into making many mistakes.

A good game to watch. If Chile can keep this up some of the other "high fliers" better watch out !!!

Roll on tonight....got my fingers crossed !!

Cheers

Spain played like a third division team. Soccer is like a religion in that country so the team and manager will feel the brunt of it on their return home. The French people openly displayed their anger when their side flopped in South Africa four years ago.

Still think Argentina or Brazil will win the tournament, my hope still remains with Germany.

As for tonight's match, come on Uruguay !

"Roll on tonight....got my fingers crossed !!"

Not to be a stick in the mud but, more like roll over. Just can't see it, although, of course, I shall root for England. Alan Morehouse reminded me on Facebook that they have never beaten Uruguay in the World Cup. That doesn't mean anything but if they play today as they have been playing, I don't hold much hope. Then again, how pleasant a surprise if they prevail!

GO ENGLAND!

I don't wanna get in a 'match of wits' with so few weapons of my own in regards to football but I just don't think some of the strategy regarding Rooney, Gerrard and Lampard during the second game showed promise. I expect to see them press hard and early today... what we in Canuckistan would say is 'Everyone FLY!".

Having said all I have, I must reiterate that my knowledge is limited to a level well below all who have posted to this thread. Allow me an example... ya wanna talk Yankee football? I believe that sums up my take on it so ignore my comments and enjoy the game. I have lots of ale and scored cooked lobsters at $4.99 a pound. Haven't seen that price for YEARS! I saw the sign and the lineup so I caught the fish guys eye and held up 6 fingers, to which he gave me a thumbs up. An hour later, I retrieved my prize. I'll be crackin bugs within the hour. Mmmmmmmmmmmm.

Love the fair unbiased commentary during the match against Italy (which I thoroughly enjoyed) When an English player attempted to cripple an Italian striker heading towards goal, it was "He had no choice, it was a professional foul, he had to stop him, it was the right thing to do"

Charmingly arrogant with a hint of self righteousness.

Some of us aren't complaining. A bunch of overpaid posers meet reality, only outdone by the US NFL. I didn't watch the match because the result was all too predictable, all the way. Now it's likely out of the way, we can get back to normal and work on what we are good at - and soccer ain't it. No "clearly" based on the short-term result, some of us could have told you that from way on back.
It's a pretty tawdry kind of nationalism, being required to support such a side, just because they wrap themselves in an English flag. Jingoism writ small. By all means enjoy a game, but to make the kind of fuss this has attracted is out of proportion. I'd have a bit more respect if most of those watching played. But they don't, so I don't.
Now if you want a game, play rugby.

We were beaten by a more determined team on the day. They appeared to want it more than us. And as for Suarez - what can I say, I don't like the guy as a person , but he is one hell of a player.

Never mind we English are hardened to all this. At least we didn't lose on penalties. We were spared that!!

But no miracle I fear !!

Pull Gerrard off at half time??? I wouldn't have even played him at all. I'm fed up with him taking all the corners and free kicks and doing nothing with them. Not content with chucking away Liverpool's league title, now he's done the same to England's world cup.

It's a shame how we have to wait for these aging heroes to retire rather than just dropping them, but because it's the media who effectively pick the team these days I suppose no manager is going to dare to leave out a past hero.
