Yeah, it was a new record... 16 yellow and 4 red... the referee completely lost control. Here's a video :)

Ah, nice video, thanks Kalah :). Makes me remember the tears of Ronaldo, how lovely :devious: !. But really, what a game was that, we were SO good that WC, only their anoying way of playing the referee was in the way of further progress...

We (the referees) have discussed that match at length, and concluded two things: 1) the referee tried to control the match by penalizing players with cards rather than speaking to them, using body/whistle language and communicating with the captains, and 2) the players played like headless chickens, unable to get it into their tiny tiny brains that if they continued to break the rules, more cards would come. The coaches didn't help either. Had those been my players on that pitch, I would have called them all over to the bench and screamed at them that unless they started to play properly, I would beat them all to bloody pulps and then send them all home.

Well, you got a point, and to be honoust, they played like asses, all of them. Holland got carried away by the way ortugal was playing, so they just joined and started kicking the sh*t out of everybody, viewers weren't really happy or anything...

I remember being horrified at that game with all the cards.

Holland should be good but they aren't really. I thought Huntelaar was pretty awesome?

He is.

I wrote:The big name of the tournament I foresee will be Huntelaar.


He's blooming now, and this is his big chance. If he plays well during these next couple of weeks (which I foresee that he will), he will likely be purchased by one of the über-clubs like Man. Utd. or Barcelona for an outrageously indecent amount of money, and go on to become the biggest Dutch star in European football.

How about other players, then? Who will brake through and show their talent to the world for the first time? I think the Czech Republic will show us some new talent, with their biggest stars out. That Tomáš Sivok is really exciting. Then there's Miguel Veloso, plays for Sporting... could be a real asset for Portugal... the Turk Mevlut Erding (mark that name...), then there are the home-team's Sebastian Prödl and Christian Fuchs - very good.. and the Russians have several talented but largely unknown talents such as Igor Akinfeev and Diniyar Bilyaletdinov.

With such a name you cannot become a star. No way!

What about Karel Poborsky? He became a star after -96... ;)

Yeeees...? What about them?

Other talents include Germany forward Mario Gomez, France striker Karim Benzema and Croatia playmaker Luka Modric (Spurs player, yey!).

Well, they are the best paid attackers, but Bergkamp was the BEST paid ever (from players in Holland that is)!

Yeah, that would suck, to be out of the tournament before it has really begun... The Swiss will have trouble without him.

0-1, a bit surprising so far; Czech have been playing 4-5-1 and instead of putting Baros on, they let Sverkos in, and then he scored... First goal for his national team, and it's in the EC... cool.

I think that the cards were absolutely justified. If you look at each foul it merited a card. Why was the referee punished after the game?

Each individual card might have been justified, but the judge is supposed to be able to calm down the game so that he doesn't have to show his cards so often.
