    So are you also a big fan of Bert van Marwijk and Mark van Bommel, or just the club?

    I like all three. Sittard is not far from where I used to live. There is a little shop of sorts there, (strangely named after a little animal which doesn't frequent those parts), which offered quite competitive rates on certain horticultural products.

    Maastricht is nicer. Heerlen is meh.

    Maastricht is nice, indeed! I also like Valkenburg. I sometimes go there for biking.


    ps: funny coincidence, Feyenoord will play a friendly @ Fortuna on saturday the 19th.

    Ozil was like a Ghost today, nothing from him at all he needs to be benched.

    I dont have any idea why Ozil is still in the starting lineup. Its a joke. Good game by Hummels, Jerome Boateng, Lahm and Thomas Muller. And do I have to mention Manuel Neuer ? World Class !

    Yepp Brazil it is, but i'm not that impressed with them at all. They rely on a smothering defence home advantage and luck to somehow squeeze them through the games, and two defenders got them the goals that sez everything...........:rolleyes: If Germany play their cards right they can win.

    Well, agree with most parts of this story but saying they would be the worst team to win the WC is a little bit
    exaggerated ;)
    But to answer the last question - can they beat Germany ? No ! :p

    I think they are really saying nessie in terms of attacking style this Brazillian team are nowhere near ones of the past, its a shame but thats football now. Its win ugly now for them and all the other teams at the business end of the tourney. :rolleyes::) Its a great chance for Germany to win. ;)

    Yes, its an US flag Bundesbiers.
    And we had smaller US flags in all of our flower tubs around the house because as you know - it was the 4th of July on Friday ! :)
    And if Germany hadnt play I would have set up my large US flag as well ! ;)

    What's everyone think about the semifinal matchups?

    Germany are slight favorites (Vegas odds) over Brazil, and Argentina are also slight favorites (Vegas odds) over Netherlands.

    This World Cup has been financially healthy for me so far. Started my account with $500, and am up to $1,800 now. I did ok thru the group stage, but made $1,000 over the round of 16 and quarterfinals. Woohoo.

    So far, I'm leaning to Germany and Argentina advancing. Argentina winning it all. Messi gets his deserved trophy.
