    One of the most boring teams to win it yet though. They should stick to pushing donkeys off of church towers and pulling the heads off chickens. ;)

      Most boring team I agree, however the best of the World Cup won this time and it was Spain.

      I hope Canada can qualify for 2014!

    • Dude. says:

      Im guessing your english? lol, you probably think the English have the best style!

      • Monster Bash says:

        England were a disgrace this year, but that doesn’t excuse Spain from being guilty of being by far one of the most un-entertaining sides to take to the field in the tournament. A lucky goal against Germany cost us all a potentially much more exciting and high scoring World Cup final between Germany and Holland imo. Spain’s name going on the underside of the cup is more a victory for boring La Liga style football than anything else.

  2. LFC says:

    The guys on RTE were right, this game was a disgrace. Happy for Spain though, but that game was a pretty good reflection of this World Cup over all, absolute shite.

    Congratulations to Spain. This was not one of the better finals because Holland made it difficult for Spain to play their brand of fluid soccer. Too many fouls committed which ruined the spectacle. I thought we wre in for a great match based on the first 20 minutes when Spain were allowed to play their way. Once Holland began fouling the Spaniards and the Spaniards became frustrated and began fouling too it became a game with too many stoppages and no rhythm. Still, no one can deny that the better team won. Holland did have chances though and Robben will forever regret not scoring when he was one-on-one with Casillas.

    Martin Webb was simply not up to snuff yesterday. He missed far too many dives and let some harsh Dutch tackles go. I would have much rathered the Mexican referee who did the third place game. Even as a Germany fan, I applauded many of his no calls on Muller’s dives and adept handling of the game in general.

    Comment for LFC. If you had any idea the pressure both teams were under to perform on the night you would not be making such an uneduated comment. Besides, if you didnt like it you needn’t have watched.

    Maybe you should blame the fear factor of all of the teams that played against Spain and decided to defend with ten men behind the ball so as to use the Mourinho system employed by Inter against Barcelona. Obvious Spain play the same style a Barcelona and that was what happened. As for England… Well beating England with a lack of top players was really just a run of the mill situation! Boring? Great passing football versus crazy high speed headless chicken Premiership footbal? I choose the beautifull game as it was meant to be played. As Brian Clough once said “If football was meant to be played in the sky, God would’ve built pitches there!”

    Spain are the best team in the world… To European Championships and 1 World Cup… What do England have to say to that?
