Webb is so ****ing dumb, I'm beginning to suspect he's the man behind Bruce_Campbell. Kills me how football referees devoid of any ability and judgement can officiate for the WC finals.
For once find myself agreeing with Alan Hansen: the Dutch play in the first 45 minutes was an utter disgrace. I'm still disappointed they lost though.
And to the ****ing Merkans whining about how this can be the most popular sport in the world go **** yourself with your silly watching-the-grass-grow run a lap if you hit a ball base*****, ice ****ey and bloody basket*****. Horrible to watch even if it's the greatest game in the sport's history.
There, pointless rant off my chest, World Cup done and dusted.

I'm not a great footy fan, but I can see why it's a more popular sport worldwide than cricket, or the American sports of NFL, basketball, baseball, ice hockey, etc.
However, this final would've done very little to win over new recruits. It's a pity Holland reached this final, because their play typified the very worst of European football. It's unfortunate that the Brazilians committed harikiri against the Dutch, because a Spain-Brazil final would've been so much better.
Still, that's not Holland's fault. They beat everybody to reach the final. But for me, cricket and athletics have always been more exciting, and this final has just reinforced my prejudices in that direction....
According to the BBC re-run Iniesta wasn't off-side when the ball was fed to him for the first time and ricocheted back to Fabregas off the Dutch defender. A clean goal, I'm afraid. Stekelenburg did get a hand to it...so near etc.
@ the monging out against Spain. Deserved winners.
