Has Wolcott even played? Is he on the roster for any good reason?

Eriksson likes his boyish good looks.

Neville is very long on those throws. He should play quarterback.

I have nothing against Crouch. He certainly plays very hard. But, good Lord, is he ever awkward and clumsy.

On the other hand, I’m no great fan of Beckham. It seems as though he spends all match lurking on the fringe of play, hoping for a corner or a free kick. At least Lennon gets in there and makes things happen.

O’Brien and Balboa were commenting how hot it was going to be at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. They seem not to realize July is winter there and that the average July high in Pretoria is about 70 degrees. The average high in Johannesburg is in the mid to low 60s.

Why sub off Lennon? Unless, as the ABC guys pondered, he’s terrible at penalties.

If a team doesn’t play a single good match in the entire tournament, that team doesn’t deserve to advance to the semifinals.

You know, not to demean anti-racism demonstrations or anything, but really, what is ?Say No to Racism? supposed to mean?  Who?s it supposed to convince?  Are there some folks out there thinking, ?Gosh, I?ve been on the fence about this whole racism thing, but seeing England and Portugal behind that banner has really pushed me into the anti-racism camp.?

I think the idea is that saying nothing while people make Hitler salutes in the stands gives tacit approval to that behavior. Obviously, the pre-game messages aren’t going to change how people think, but it might make them think that they shouldn’t be making monkey noises at black players during the games.

All right, that’s cool.  I’m down with that.

I fear that fra paolo’s home in London’s Portuguese neighborhood might be in danger.

In light of their disgraceful behavior and undeserved win, I hereby announce my implacable opposition to all things Portuguese. For a start, I shall never eat at Nando’s ever again - it seems their “Be Portuguese!” advertising campaign is about to get very messy. But beyond that, I don’t know how to demonstrate my hatred of Portugal. I now know just how those people in the Middle East felt when they decided to boycott Denmark. Well, there’s Lurpak, and… and…

Help! How do I demonstrate my anti-Portuguese bigotry?

Did either team deserve to win? Couldn’t we have just eliminated both teams and let Argentina into the semifinals?

Btw, I had an argument here on BTF before the tournament about how the Brazil and Argentina sides weren’t much good, Brazil because of their poor defence, Argentina because of their baffling team selection. And right now it looks like neither will make the semis. Fess up, who was it?

Brilliant dive by Ronaldo.

Brazil get what they deserve. And it looks for the world like it’ll be France vs Germany in the final.

A rematch of the Euro 2000 semifinal. If history repeats itself, we’ll see France win with a penalty in the 117th minute after a handball in the box.

Portugal looked a hell of a lot better than England. England should just be happy they were in a terrible group because they’ve sucked all tournament. Have they scored more than 2 goals on non-set pieces?

That’s what I’d pick, but I don’t think you can write off Portugal.  Especially with Deco coming back.

I’d be surprised if Italy won though.

I don’t like the home nation winning the WC, so I’ll be rooting for France or Portugal.

It’s a shame we didn’t get to watch Crouch shoot a penalty. I think I really would have enjoyed that.

Didn’t you see the one he took in a friendly game against Jamaica?

A thing of beauty is a joy forever. Good thing he scored a hat-trick anyway.

Incidentally, Professor Hat, I think you very much CAN write off Portugal. England didn’t play well, but were much the better side even with 10 men, up until the last 15 mins of extra time. Their defense is bad, so their midfield has to drop crazily deep to protect them, which makes them toothless going forwards. They have decent wide men, but no strikers to speak of, so they can sometimes look pretty, but there’s no killer blow. Against England they had an incredible amount of possession, and played for an hour against 10 men. Yes, England have an excellent defense, but by the end the players were absolutely out on their feet. And Portugal still couldn’t score.

Patrick Viera is going to eat their lunch.
