You may have the letter of the law, but the ref has to make a decision about the handling, and if it appears to have gained the advantage for the player a ref will 90% blow for handball. You cannot have a 2 day debate about whether or not it was 100% deliberate. How could you find that out anyway? Lie detector? I don't think it was an awful decision. Unlucky maybe. Then the sending off was a bit of a farce too. And Barca got lucky last year against Chelsea froim a dodgy free kick. So fuck em. Peaked too soon obviously if you cannot break down a 10 man team with the greatest attacking midfield in the world.

Someone in the crowd was holding up a morphed picture of Mourinho as Jebus, but I can't find it on the net.

thank goodness he's on our side

Shitty game (even if the result had gone the other way). As good a coach as Mourinho is, destructive, defensive football blows.

Especially frustrating to watch as a Bayern fan, when your team has 70% possession, and loses 2-0. Apparently, they just weren't prepared for an 11-man defense.

The only way for this to have turned into an entertaining game would have been an early score for Bayern, which would have forced Inter to open up and attack.

One consolation for me: they signed the Ugly (but Talented) One to a new 5-year contract.

So, the great festival will soon be upon us. The tards of the world will be crossing & kissing their rings as they trot onto the pitches, calling on their god to ease their passage into the next round.

Jehovah will be busy and torn between the Brazilians, Argies, Spaniards and an abundance of other catlicking adherents, whilst allah will be wielding his mighty sword to slay all opposition to Nigeria and Algeria.

I shall be forced to consider swift hari-kari if my tiny little nation doesn’t stuff the mighty merkins on the 12th – but you lot must find it strange that a “world cup” actually involves nations from er – the world!

Don't sell the Europeans short (including you Brits) on the praising-God bullshit during football games. It's becoming more and more widespread.

In fact, it pained me to see one of my favorite players, Bastian Schweinsteiger, pulling that shit just recently. I had never seen him do it before.

By the way, most of the players who kiss their rings are showing their love for their spouses, if I'm not mistaken.

Indeed we do have more than our share of tards and I'll yell the mockery at every twat I spot praising their sky bastard! Should be a good few weeks though.
I'm in Scotland when England play their 2nd game, so I might soon be posting with missing teeth!

I'd hoped to, but my 'free' accommodation changed country - the miserable bastard - and other plans should cost me a lot less.
*sigh* - tele will do I suppose.

Watch your fucking language

England's players have been warned by the controversial Brazilian referee who will take charge of Saturday's World Cup opener against the United States that he is learning English swear words in order to know whether he is being abused by players.
I wonder if the twat of a ref's been lurking round this place? - the cunt would learn more decent words in 5 minutes than at any language school!

If he's been reffing English speaking players for this long and the players swearing at him hasn't affected anything at all without him knowing that they're swearing at him... then obviously there is no problem whether he knows they are or not... unfortunately it sounds like the guy is just a wanker.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.
