    Hats off to the Italians, Pirlo in particular, IMHO they outplayed spain and if anyone deserved the match it was the italians. Much better than expected. And the referee just flat out sucked donkey balls, he was lucky there wasn't really any controcersial positions in the match.

    The irish were just **** out of luck those second and third goals were both lucky and it was a definite penalty on Robbie Keane with 15 minutes to go, if that goes in the Croats panic and maybe the lepracons get a point but hey.

    I haven't even got Setanta up to watch the tournament like I did last time - just haven't found the time as yet.

    Gotta be careful. In my experience, only about half my Italian pals can take ethnic ribbing. Very sensitive.

    During major tournaments the soccer forum turns into the ethnic ribbing forum.

    True and you guys havent created any real chances against them.... What does that say about you?

    This has got to be the slowest and most disappointing game of the tourney so far.

    Is Desailly out of commentary and back in the team?

    Ukraine looks possessed... Sweden could have absolutely stolen momentum if that header didn't hit the post.

    I think I was too bullish on France in the JI pool.

    The last time someone overestimated France's fighting spirit like this was all of the Western Allies around 193.... ahh, you get the point.

    Raoul, what happened to your job? You didn't get enough vacation days?
