Yes, of course the Lamard decision was a ****ing joke which simply shouldn't happen at this level, but we'd been utterly outclassed for most of the first half and to give a away the two goals that we did before half time was village green stuff. Quite how anyone could comments on the German's supposed defensive frailties had always been beyond me given the impotence of our attack and the likelihood that theirs would rip our painfully slow defence to shreds, and so it proved. It was all very well whining about Beckenbauer's comments, but they always sounded true to me, and so that proved too.
    I'd agree with this, except I'd also give Germany a little more credit for the quality of their attacking play. Lack of pace in a defence isn't actually that easy to exploit, and Germany with their three up front were great at pouring forward as soon as they won the ball in the middle of the park. Their second goal was a really well-worked passing move and I found it a little disappointing that the commentators didn't give them any more credit; if England had scored such a goal they'd have creamed. The third and fourth were really good counter attacks too.

    First goal though, lol.

    Eh, I'm not upset about England losing at all, and it's still evident that Sir Alex is the worst poster on the forum and should have been banned for relentlessly trolling a long time ago.

    Enjoying the fallout though, entertaining stuff.

    I wouldn't necessarily disagree with that.

    However, it's not an opinion that needs expressing.

    You're not helping the situation.

    Some of your posting over the last couple of days has been nothing short of dire.

    I was going to say that you must have SS on ignore until I saw your edit. because surely you realise he is comfortably the worst poster in the history of CW.
