    Awful game. Would take it if ours was that bad tomorrow though, if it means we win.

    What a bore. Neither team looked like they could be arsed. Thought France would at least have a go late on, but they were totally insipid.

    Boring game, as usual involving Spain.

    Can't see Portugal vs Spain being much better either. Germans by far the most entertaining team left and that's a historical oddity.

    I seriously considered Spiral at 9 TBF, something decent from France.

    Apart from that Ribery must be the most over-rated played in world football, bar none.

    And htf did France rack up 21 games unbeaten leading up to these finals?
    Ribery is a shocking player.

    Yea. Fully expecting Portugal to do their usual 6-3-1 formation, with the 3 being a defensive midfield.

    Martinez letting the neutral mask slip a bit. Spanish games are good to watch because "you want to watch winners", not if the games are as ball-crushingly tedious as that we don't, Bob.

    Yeah, only just got into it on the latest BBC4 showing, they put the first series on about 6 months ago, now doing the second. I'm a big fan of Eouropean Crime fiction in books and TV, so it's right up my street.

    Tbf to Spain, it's not like they totally shut up shop. It struck me that they realised France were just so totally pedestrian that once they scored their goal they didn't need to get out of first gear to see them off. All they had to do was go through the motions and wait for the clock to run out. They didn't park the bus, France were just rubbish.

    Yeah, really top stuff. Just gets better as it goes on as well.

    Much better (and apparently more realistic) than Judge John Deed, or whatever the British equivalent is. Though, that's obviously not saying much.

    If you get FX, then you should also check out Braquo. Bit more seedy and dark, but similar fare.

    At least they'll attack with a bit of tempo though, plus they have a player worth watching. It can't possibly be as bad as this match was, I was starting to yearn for a bit of deep-lying hoofball by the end.
