    Doesn't explain why once reaching the edge of the opposition's penalty area, they just turned around and passed to back to their goalkeeper. It's like just pressing pass all the time on FIFA, sure the other team won't get the ball, but it's ****ing boring and so negative.

    The Puyol/Robben incident makes a mockery of the idea that players should stay on their feet wherever possible. Can't say I blame any player for going down a bit easily when the alternative is for the referee to ignore an obvious foul.

    Secondly, there is a difference between being physical and simply kicking **** out of the opposition. The Dutch didn't cross the line, they were so far over the line it's untrue.

Kicking people in a thuggish and boringly negative way, may be what you want to praise, good luck to you, I won't join in though.
    haha, I might be biased, but i'm 100% sure if you put all the tackles of the final next to each other you'd see that 7/10 Dutch tackles weren't actually anything close to dirty, just spanish nancy boys being better at the schwalbe then the Dutch.

    as i said, Yes van Bommel and De Jong deserved red for the overwhole performance, so did Iniesta, Heitinga deserved his 2nd yellow, his 1st yellow was one of the above nancy boys doing a dive.

    and Webb is an absolute tosser for missing the most obvious corner EVER.

    bulluppercut and you know it...Spain and Webb made the Dutch look like kicking **** the **** out of Spain, Spain played just as hard...just because everyone has that image of De Jong on their mind doesn't mean it was like that the whole game...your just following what all the media is saying, everyone who does know something about Football has a different opinion.


    and your making a joke out of being a mod.

    can't wait till Spanish Vincente gets a go for modship.

    Use of the word "bullcrap" seriously devalues your argument.

    Do you mean the Robben that was clearly being pulled back by Puyol while charging through on goal in possession and did not go down denying Spain a certain red card?

    EDIT: Also I think both the Dutch and the Spanish played a pretty hard brand of football in the final. Mentioned it before the Spanish were hardly angels, just the better of a poor bunch. I think Kweeks right in a sense, the media has seemed pretty biased against Holland, while fawning over the Spanish team because they have better technical ability. Doesn't quite seem right to me.

    Nah you're taking what I'm saying into a different direction as I expected. Essien is class at what he does, same as Lampard is. As such it'd be hard to say who's the better player. Ferdinand's a better player than Eduardo and we're not comparing positions there but how good they are relative to it.

    That son is what they call playing advantage.

    Agree on the second part.

    Nah the Dutch were far worse. Sure Spain put in a few tough/late tackles but Netherlands' count was in double figures.

    What advantage did Robben gain though?

    Nah nah, that's misleading.
    A lot of the fouls that Netherlands committed weren't really fouls, Spain were just going down way to easy and Webb loved blowing the whistle.

    I agree with Ausage and Kweek, the media has made it out to be worse than it was. Half of Netherlands yellows were either very harsh, or down to Spanish theatrics. Yeah, Netherlands were a bit more aggressive than Spain, but only a little bit, Spain got away with a lot of stuff that the Netherlands didn't because of theatrics, or just plain inconsistency.
