Football thread 2013/14 season

Recommended Posts

Some seriously excellent penalties there.

Two top keepers and not a single save from 14 penalties.

Not a dig at the keepers, the penalties were just that good.

Exactly the sort of start the game needed. The crowd were turned up to 11 before kick off and that early goal has only increased the noise. Hopefully it will mean the Brazil players feel ten feet tall.

Most games this tournament Brazil have been ordinary and relied on individual skill mostly to progress. First time they've actually looked like a team really. Spain look pretty much like they did against Italy really, missing Alonso I think.

Shearer's really channeling Partridge tonight. Fingers crossed more goals in the hope of a "cashback!" or "twat! that was liquid football!" in the full time summary.

Hansen said Fred was overated before the game, what that was based on? Does he watch Brazilian football every week, I had no opinion on Fred, i think Hansen is doing what people in this country sometimes do with players who don't play in the English premier league then write them off based on seeing a handful of games, like Ibrahimovich

Ramos just missed pen

Wonderful stuff. Spain's chokehold on international football has been so depressing. I really feel as though they just struck on a certain style at the right time in the game, coupled with a slight decline in the traditionally great sides like Brazil and Italy that's allowed them to dominate. It was mercilessly dull though, this is much more fun!

I think we should all take a minute to remember that it was Italy that dared to defy the Spanish behemoth. It was like the end of 300, where Leonidas (Pirlo) wounds Xerxes and proves his mortality before dying and thus setting him up for eventual defeat.
