That's one of the most unhinged posts I've read in a while.

I hope the tabloids publish his phone number like that other twat.

I'm assuming you are either joking or are very, very drunk indeed.

Demonstrably not the case, but anyhoo ... once some people get an idea in their head, there's no shifting it, is there?

There's only one team that springs to mind when thinking about "anti-football" and this World Cup, and it's not Portugal.

Perhaps not anti-football, but surely "cynical" and "cheating" doesn't take a great leap of the imagination.

You're all f*cking maniacs.

Dearth of creativity ? Is that a f'ing joke ? Where was the f*cking ball the entire game ? Not in England's half, but in their half of their half. Metrosexual Cristiano Ronaldo ? Who invented that whole concept...oh yeah...the crybaby with his feet up on the bench.

" A cynical, cheating, anti-football team. How could we have countenanced approaching Scolari?"

ANTI-FOOTBALL TEAM ? The same team who knocked it around with one touch passes for 90 minutes ? The team with more stepovers and moves than someone walking over a minefield ?

How could you have "countenanced" approach Scolari ? Fucking hell, "COUNT" his fucking championships, that's how.

Losers. You deserve to lose EVERY TIME.

LOSERS.

(Mind you, I'm in love with this French team as well, but this Portugal team is absolutely brilliant.)


Maniacs.

I didn't watch the first half, but to me England looked far more dangerous in the second half, and even after Rooney went off. What chances Portugal seemed to have came from Robinson being shakier than Muhammad Ali sitting on top of a pile of jello in an earthquake simulator.

That's a fun analogy, Inca ... only it doesn't hold water, really - Robinson saved England on various occasions, and only lost out compared to Ricardo in the penalties.

I saw Robinson dangerously knock down a lot of shots, and hesitate when coming out for crosses.

Driving home from work last night, all the talk on the radio was that England had been cheated by those dirty foreigners, especially that little ponce Ronaldo. I was amazed at how innocuous Ronaldo's role in the whole affair was when I finally saw the highlights this morning. He didn't run over to get involved, he was already in the general vicinity. There was no imaginary card. He doesn't scream in the referee's face. Then gets shoved by the snarling Wazza for his troubles. Nothing terribly worthy of the Alpay like witch hunt.

That's exactly how I saw it too Dances. It was difficult to see, at the time, what the red card was for, but in the cold light of day and all the replays, it's much clearer.

Ronaldo can be a nasty bit of work at times but in this instance, he didn't do anything wrong.

Indeed. I am still not 100 % conviced it was a deliberate stamp from Rooney, having said all that.

I didn't think it was.

But those are exactly the situations at close quarters where Rooney is likely to get caught out and his aggression in those circumastances can easily be a liability.

By shoving Ronaldo (who is very unpopular anyway) he made it easy for the ref to send him off.

I lost respect for them after the Holland match. It was one of the most cynical World Cup displays I've ever seen - from both teams.

Against England they weren't particularly cynical, merely mediocre. Playing against ten men for an hour, the so-called 'Brazil of Europe' couldn't break them down. Sweden, hell even Trinidad, gave the England defence more problems.

The only thing they have in common with Brazil is the language. They're the worst team in the semis by a street. I hope they get thumped by France - and then lose the match too.

Was that Rooney's first red card for England ? If so, it's been a long time coming.
