Come on, how can you hate the nation that gave us Jose Mourinho and Ronaldo?

I hope the Ronaldo thing blows over though, it's rather undignified. And he's way down on the list of reasons why we went out.

Yeah, I hate Portugal. My reason(s) are perhaps best summed up in this eloquent quote from an NTFC message board:

"wot a fucking cunt ronaldo is. i fucking hate the fucking twat. i wish him pain, i wish him suffering and i hope horrible things happen to the cunt"

I'm supporting them as the underdog (I'll be watching the match, if at all, on TV on a Eurostar train through la belle France). But they are certainly negative, and against the Dutch ill-disciplined.

An Argentine ref for an England game? Give The USA an Iraqi ref with the same logic. Ridiculous. I hope the tabloids publish his phone number like that other twat.
I think the Argentine referee disproves your theory (which I hope and suspect was purely stated for reasons of parody). He got the three major ta;king points -- the red card, the penalty appeal and the Carragher penalty -- spot on, and in general handled the game very competently indeed. AS might an Iraqi ref handle a USA game competently.

wingco said something similar in parody. I actually think MP's G might have been serious.

Portugal are top of the disciplinary league (more cards than amyone else) and showed a dearth of creativity today that doesn't deserve to be in the semi-finals.

The match against Holland was the first Portugal didn't finish with 11 men since the 2002 WC. Last night they commited an ex-aequo WC record of 6 -six- fouls during the first 90 minutes. That Holland game was really a one out.

Would England be worthier semi-finalists for managing to hold up a Portuguese team depleted of its attacking mastermind with 9 -sometimes 10- men behind the ball for an hour?

It's worth remembering that the Mexico Portugal game ended up with about 8 yellow cards despite it being a pretty even tempered game. It was over enthusiastic refereeing, that one.

I've disliked team Portugal ever since the 2000 Euro semifinal, but since the Holland game I abhor them. They are a disgrace to the sport and a blemish to this tournament.

You people are all fucking mentalists. Portugal are ace, and if it weren't for the fact that they have Cristiano Ronaldo (who I dislike for being a preening waster, and for no other reason) they would be my complete favourites. As it is, I am also tempted by France (minus Patrick Vieira)

You'd agree they were useless against England, though, andy? They were bloody lucky it was England they were playing (if that makes any sense).

Oh aye. They need Deco, badly. The two games they have played wiuthout him in this tournament they've been rubbish in. They could use a striker too.

Re: the penalties. If the referee's asistant can grasp the complexities of the offside rule, how come he can't spot the keeper coming off his line before the ball is struck?

Well, the ABI brigade has suffered a few resignations and waverers after the semi - are there going to be more defections here? What would it take?

A Henry dive, waved away and punished by a series of perfect passes leading to a counter-attack goal is my minimum requirement.

portugal are an excellent team who play beautiful football. i think they're the best passing side left in the tournament.

incredible that people are judging them on that freak game against van basten's thugs. the dutch thought they could bully them, kicked one of their best players out of the game in the first half. were the portuguese intimidated? were they fuck. they fought back with a vengeance and dumped those sorry motherfuckers back on the polder slagheap they came from. it was fucking glorious.

without deco they got dragged down to england's level in the quarter-final, but they were still by far the better team. maybe they lost attacking ambition as the game wore on, but who could blame anyone for settling for penalties against england? it was the intelligent thing to do.

i think they've got a good chance against the now over-confident french and i will be throwing the curse of my passionate support firmly behind portugal for the rest of the tournament.

(the fact that i have 10 on them to win at 22/1 is purely incidental)

Obviously agree, Grande Garcia.

Good luck with that bet.

I don't know of a game that I've been so anxious to see. It's one of those that I play in my mind a 100 different ways and none of them may happen. I love both teams playing tomorrow, and will cheer for whoever wins. But it will break my heart that one of them won't get a shot at Italy. (It's one of those times that it would be great if the World Cup was a titlebelt like boxing. Italy v France, winner takes on Portugal, winner takes on Germany, etc.)
