    Now extra time, embarrassing :rolleyes:
    But Algeria is a very tough opponent today, very good game by them.

    I think that 70's Dutch team was very good one of the best european sides, ok they lost two finals but its the style of play that everyone remembers particularly 74''. :)

    I was thinking something similar. Unless Jochi does something about Mertesacker and Howedes, Germany isn't going to advance much further. Are you sitting down Nessie? I don't want you to faint when I write that I think Boateng is doing very well.

    What a pep talk.

    "Don't be surprised when someone decides to Flip the Script, and take a pass on saying Uncle"

    "When the race is on, all bets are off"

    "Just because they are the strong doesn't mean they can't get their asses kicked"

    Pumped for tomorrow!

    Yes Croak, your special friend Boateng was one of the very few better players. ;)
    But if we are playing like this against France we can book our flights back home for Saturday and to me this "wannabe" Coach Löw is responsible for that.
    Lahm is one of the best left-backs worldwide, why he needs to play in our defensive midfield instead remains Jogis secret.
    And 4 centre-backs in our back four doesnt work, everybody noticed it but Löw doesnt change anything. Our wing play is non existent.
    I know its not nice to say that Im happy about an injury of a player but fortunately Mustafi wont play another game at this World Cup so here is hope that Jogi finally changes his tactics. :rolleyes:
    And Ozil.....I have no words. He needs to be benched, awful....:mad:

    Oh no he's playing guys out of position is he? Not a good sign. I noticed the lack of real wing play allrite, everything through the middle and pumped long to the forwards. Low's tactics and Algeria's defiance made it a tense watch. Friday's another day I think or is it hope Germany will beat France. ;)

    I just heard the funniest and most stupid thing ever: Klinsmann complained about the Algerian referee, because he also speaks French, like some Belgium players.

    So when I understand him correctly, a referee will do a better job when he can't communicate with the players :D.

    Maybe Klinsman is just trying to get the red neck part of the American audience interested. ;)

    You know, I know Klose is getting old, but he proved he can still play and score. Why aren't we seeing more of him??

    That was nothing more than Klinsi getting into the head of the referee early that we will not accept biased reffing. Nothing more. Non-issue.

    I'm hoping for a good match and a US victory. Maybe that will stifle all my friends who are whining that footy is boring and they just can't get into it.

    He attracted all five defenders and flipped the ball off to DiMaria for that winning goal. 5 defenders for one guy??? Seriously?

    Yeah, that was again unbelieveable by Messi, without him Argentina is just an average team.
    Sandolf would say - Messi is "the guy", but thats what we already knew before the game.;)
    Bad luck for the Swiss team that the header only hit the post :(

    If the US can shut him down then their chances are better.

    I hope the US team can stop him.
    They definitely have a chance, all games were tight so far and all favourites struggled. Go USA ! :tup:
    Bundesbiers would go mad if I'd tell him that just at the moment they show a report about US football fans and the growing interest and enthusiasm about football and the World Cup. :p;)
    Oh, Obama says they have a chance to win the WC ! ;)

    Nice to be able to cheer for Othmar Hitzfeld. I never could when he was with BVB or the Bayern mafia. His Schweizerlis almost pulled it off.

    Meanwhile Vlad Putin is cleaning up everywhere else. He's probably laughing so hard he has tears in his eyes!

    I always somehow liked him Sandolf though he was with Bayern. Dont know why.
    Not nearly as bad as van Gaal for example, a nutter whose daughters have to call him "Sie" :rolleyes::D

    I am thinking it might have been the appearances on the Aktuelle Sport Studio rather than the clubs he worked for. Otto Rehhagel is another one of those.

    Greek style finishing from Wondolowski and Hazard.

    But not from Lukaku though.
