    Yeah, Maradona wanted them to do well, but he made Kevin Keegan look a tactical genius, little shape, little plan, just not an International coach, which it doesn't pain me to say
    Do I contradict myself?

    Muller missing semis is absolute bull ****. Thats not an yellow card for gods sake. An exciting young player missing biggest match of his career because he got booked twice in 5 games, both of'em being ridiculously soft.

    Yeah, that was a low blow, sorry. Can't question the man's passion, I've even seen him attend Argentina's Davis Cup ties. But he's clueless tactically and passion doesn't win you matches against opposition like Germany.

    Give maradona a rest guys; Even capello got owned by german tactics. Germans are preparing based on their opponent rather playing a particular style. Besides germany's first goal is not maradona's fault, defenders are just piss poor in set pieces at the start of the match.
    He is a bad coach, but not as bad as people want to portray him.

    The big moment was obviously 1-0 after 3 min, when that ball boy, whatshisface, scored - which allowed Germany to play with less pressure. On the other hand, I must say Schweinsteiger did looked awfully nervous throughout.

    I think I'll just have to take the money I owe the IRS and use it buy some coke to drown my sorrows.

    'Ball boy whatshisface' also happens to be the joint highest scorer in the tournament with three of his four goals coming against England and Argentina FYI.

    Sarcasm directed at Maradonna for his remarks and actions. But, ok, I'll give it a rest now.

    So, is Jerome Boateng now doing it for Africa?

    I can cope with Muller being overtaken - the bugger caused me way too much pain in 1970.

    Probably true, but did you see Maradona & Messi after the Germany game? The manager trying to give his star player a hug, and Messi absolutely not buying into it at all.

    Full marks to the hundred or so England fans in the crowd who at the end of the match taunted the Argie fans with chants of "We only lost 4-1".

    That'll be the same Schweinsteiger who looked composed and went on a mazy run resulting in a goal?

    See reply to Teja. Should have used "nervoush," I guess. Schweini MoM, obviously.
