    In 1612, the Dutch opened in New Amsterdam the first brewery in what would be British America.
    We owe them big time ... I'm voting with Banjo.

    word is the lads got their undies stolen, now a hotel worker is facing jail.

    goal line tech is important but FIFA is trying to keep it traditional
    human error is part of the game as is human ability

    FIFA will be careful to make decisions like this one because it effects many more people then in most any other sports.
    if FIFA changes a rule it goes beyond the world cup, it effects national cup, regional cup, etc all the way down to youth leagues.
    not everybody will be able or can afford to implement goal line tech so i understand if they over think this move a few times

    Argentina has the motivation and confidence that the Netherlands and Spain lack.
    Brasil has the experience that the German lack.
    Uruguay, Paraguay and Ghana are upset teams that the others need not to underestimate or be toppled

    Exactly two rules have been adjusted (on international level) since 1970. One involving red and yellow cards and one where the goalkeeper can't pick up a pass made by foot.
    That's two rules in forty years.

    Goal line tech is easy, and affordable for every club in their respective highest divisions. One cam, one monitor, and don't forget that the cameras and monitors are already there, the refs just aren't allowed to use them to make a decision.

    It's three, how to become offside has slightly changed as well. Being "inactive" in the play or some useless differentiation.

    http://www.skysports.com/football/world-cup-2010/story/0,27032,18802_6237685,00.html

    Redknapp spouting some s**t again. After tipping Italy to get to the knockout rounds and England to survive and win against Germany (and even earlier than that - at the start of the tournament - France to top their group), Brazil's defense would "squeeze out" the Dutch. Their defense indeed is better than the Dutch, but it is HOW they defend that would prove their undoing. They were never tested defensively yet (Portugal sat back too during the group stage meeting between the two).

    You narrowly missed qualification for this year, hence Honduras played.

    Ruud Gullit was right about Robben though in the half-time report. Shame that RVP didn't score. :p

    What a day today! Simply amazing footballing :rockout: The Dutch played well, kept their cool and had a bit of luck to get by the dejected Brazilian's (i thought they were final's material for sure :nutkick:) The Uruguay/Ghana game was definately top 3 for action/suspense! If not #1. Simply AWESOME game! I really thought the Ghanaian's deserved the win but look's like the Dutch sent lady luck South America's way after they were done with her :pimp:

    Hopefully tomorrow is as entertaining as today was :toast:

    Same thing with us against Spain. As if it wasn't enough that the team was out of focus, the coach's decisions only made things worse.

    BTW, it is Ghana that is out of the World Cup, not Uruguay. :wtf:

    Eheh, perhaps. :laugh:

    But, in a way, I believe that Ghana should have won, given the way they played. At the end, they did so many innovative ways to score, it's a shame they didn't.
    And that last penalty was just a nerve raiser, it totally blew their concentration off.

    Also, before I had said that:

    Guess, this ends up showing how much I understand about football, anyways, Argentina x Germany will be an obligatory match to watch, no doubt.
