    I'm not flame baiting here, but what was honest about what Rooney did? Or was that fair play?

    Interesting how the first corner after Beckham went off was pretty much our first dangerous corner of the tournament and Lampard(barn door) should have scored from it.
    Yup - I'm not convinced that it's a coincidence that we improved immeasurably after Backham came off. As you say, Crouch was remarkably good too, although I have no idea how he didn't outjump his marker in front of an open goal from Gerrard's cross in extra time.

    Basically though, we were up against it for the 2nd time in 3 WC's due to Old Trafford Syndrome. However harsh the ref was, you don't give them the chance to send you off if you keep your hands to yourself and refrain from retaliating. Unfortunately, Rooney's had the same message as Cantona, Keane, Becks & others that you can do what you want & blame the rest of the world for picking on you if anyone has the temerity to stand up to you. 9 times of ouf 10 in the premiership you can get away with that sort of behaviour. Elsewhere, you can't. Doesn't alter the fact that Ronaldo is complete scum, but we knew that anyway.

    Are we talking about the push or the stepping?

    The stepping was accidental and the ref was going to take no punishiment and the push was nothing.

    If we are talking why the push was honest, then it was because it was face to face. No cheating or backhandedness. Deal with things how men do. Which should be man to man rather than cheating.

    Rooney did NOTHING wrong at all, it was a disgrace.

    Come on Brazil, always go back to them after England make their exit.

    Refer you to my comments about Med players and S. Americans. Its getting worse and spreading throughout the world and this cancer is why I find it hard to watch a football game anymore.

    Does not change the fact that a gentle push to the chest is not a sending off offense

    What else do you expect from a Northern peasant? There is no way we should be taking some sort of moral high ground considering what he did. We were not cheated out of the game, we had the opportunities and we failed to take them, simple as that.

    Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard taking penalties also, says it all really. Lampard did sweet FA (all WC). Owen Hargreaves has one thing going for him a tank, poor distribution and a lack of creative vision, plays like a headless chicken, no composure or time with the ball and is pretty reckless in the challenge but he was probably one of are better players today.

    Awful way to go out but we wouldn’t have it any other way, another false down comes to an end.

    Portugal must have broken the record for the most premiership flops on the same pitch.

    What the hell was Felipao doing taking off Pauleta and playing Ronaldo up front by himself. That's a worse decision than anything from Pekerman. He is v. lucky they won.

    Nice possum stomp from Rooney.

    Man U fans pushing out their only midfielder is going to be fun to watch

    Here's to an entertaining Brazil-France game. I can't say I really care who wins.

    Because he was behind the marker, so he could have jumped as high as he liked the defender still cuts it out first.


    Anyway if Rooney was indeed sent off for the push that is a disgrace, but it didn't really alter anything because England weren't winning the World Cup under the vegetable.

    Sorry confused here, what the hell did he do? Ive asked 3 times no and noone has answered. He did nothing wrong at all.

    And dont call me a Northern peasant please, I take offense to it.

    EDIT- Unless you are talking about Rooney rather than reference to myself and my post then ok, I still take offense
