i support portugal, but that's bull****. it should be a red card even if the game was stopped and it wasn't intentional.Johnny_Big said:Simple. The game was already stopped by the ref. It it wasn't stopped, that would be penalty and red card. But it wasn't intentional. Good call by the ref there.

pede54 said:I have no doubt whatsoever that will be Portugals gameplan. It always has been Portugals gameplan. We expect it as do all other teams. Its just a shame that until you clean up your act, Portugal will NEVER get any respect from anyone. Not other fans for sure. The Worlds media are calling your team a disgrace to football, and you are proud of that?....
pede54 said:OK but I'm buying man.......In fact I wanna buy a drink for everyone in this thread. Its been a gas and I sure feel relaxed now after letting loose all the days frustrations. I know I'm antagonistic sometimes but you know i love you all really......What would football be without a little passion huh?......I dont hold grudges, probably because i deserve all i get from people, so let the feeling be mutual.....I'll see ya in the bar........

I haven't posted/read on this forum for a while but just reading a few pages back in this forum completely justifies that. Most of you are a bunch of total retards.
I think every slightly objective fan around the world would agree with me that it was the ref that killed this game. I've hardly ever seen that kind of a poor performance by a referee.
Portugal scored a good goal. They had one or two dangerous attacks after that, besides that I wasn't impressed. My feelings about Holland haven't changed. The only thing we've done well this tournament has been defending. Apart from that it's been poor. Attacking wise there's been no midfield. I still feel Van Nistelrooij has been the victim of failing attacking play from the midfield. We created some chances against Portugal but overall it was a bad game. I won't go into detail about the cards. The ref made a mess of it, I think we can all agree on that.
Boulahrouz's tackle on Ronaldo was disgracefull, Figo made a meal out of it later, like Van Bommel did when Figo clearly (RED CARD!) headbutted him, that handball by Portugal was tough luck, Deco didn't deserve a yellow card, and Robben had a good call when he was hit by a straight leg in the box.
1-0 Is nowhere near a fair result. Overtime whould've been fair with, due to the ref 9 against 9. But in the end Portugal outsmarted us, and fair enough, Holland hasn't played a decent (attacking) match since we've played Mexico and Cameroon in the WC build-up.
Our time will come. See you in 2008.
Good luck to England, who like Holland have been playing rather pathetic so far.

By the way man, you are very evenhanded in discussions and usually very informed. I enjoy your posts. Just thought i would tell ya that......I dont wanna date you or anything ok.....I just thought i'd mention it thats all......
::shinji:: said:World's media or English media? Besides, I find it hard to beleive any non-biased media would single out Portugal only in this crazy match, especially when the majority of the non fair-play came from the Dutch. Any neutral with two eyes and no pre-determined predjudice would have seen that..
Portugal's gameplan, he says... I can already see it's gonna be your excuse should things go bad for England. It's funny how complaining about diving, time wasting, etc.. has been your pre-determined explanation for whenever things go bad for an English team. You'd say the same if it was the Argies, Germans, Italians, Spanish, etc... or did all of those countries become super-honourable to the English all of a sudden?
