Unfortunately , Brasil, win against England in the quaterfinal of the world cup of Soccer (sorry but it's football) .

I suggest you to drink with me a cup of these delicious champagne coming from Jamie's bar. If you want to drink in a shoe, you are free to bring it with it's owner ...

You're drinking 'delicious champagne' because your teams lost? Very interesting.

I guess I just don't understand this 'soccer' thing because I'm from the US, and we don't care.

powerdoc, please make sure that any alcohol purchased from my bar is consumed on the premises. British licensing laws are very strict.

I think Seaman must have had a few sips of that champagne before the match...

Well done to the US though, laying down the law on the Germans like that. I think they got short changed.

[quote]<strong>Well done to the US though, laying down the law on the Germans like that.

And apart from that, there really have been some VERY strange refereeing decisions in this World Cup

It really *is* time to make use of video replays, but I guess Sepp Blattner wouldn't like that.

Olli Kahn keeps mentioning that luck isn't just a present. You have to do something for it. And after all, he doesn't care what anybody says, as long as the team wins, no matter how. That's the spirit.

And that defines the current German team. Wanting to win by any and all means. I was shocked how they played the second half against USA ... but ... after all, they are in the semi final.

There's always a cave nearby. But I must say our Turkish friends know how to party.

That includes handling a ball off the line?

Of course, all teams do it and he´d be stupid not have done it. And he got away with it.

No way the referee never saw it though.

I think Mr. Blatter is repaying his debts that he made when he got "re-elected". Obviously South Korea, Germany and Brazil threw their support his way.

The rule is: When the hand moves to the ball, it's foul. When the ball moves to the hand - OK.

Frings had his arm on his side, and clearly the ball jumps at his hand - and THEN he pulls back his hand. I'd say the same about this situation if it was another team, really.

It was not foul, it was just dumb luck, which is the main feature of this team (except Olli).

The president of the German Soccer Association is a VERY suspicious guy. Just like Blatter, and they are friends obviously. I really wish the whole truth about the FIFA business would come to light ...

It is when it benefits the team or player involved.

There is such a thing as ball to hand but that only goes when it doesn´t mean the player hit by the ball benefits. Since this ball to hand prevented a goal it should have been a penalty.

No such thing as luck in football mate, only friends
