    im so pissed that everyone seems to hate england and take joy when they taste defeat but when england show some backbone and spirit after playing horribly they moan like bitches
    I usually hate see Englland winning because listening to the English media drives me up the wall but today they were by far the best team and showed great spirit.Will give a big preformance in the final no doubt.Will be behind England if SA make the final tbh.

    You Poms, eh. Not every NZer has been banging on about how great the ABs, but as soon as England wins a couple of decent matches, out comes the AB-hate.

    Anyway, not a big fan of any of the semi-finalists.... not too sure who I want to win... It'd certainly be a bit of story if England or Argentina win... The Yarpies will surely win... won't they??

    England are ****, they've played two very good games, pretty much the only thing they have done in the last four years. I'm not so much complaining about the format as such, but it's definitely a kick in the nuts for those teams that have played well for four years and then failed, whereas England have been utter crap and still manage to make the final. I hope the Saffies/Argies put 50 points on them.

    Im no England fan (as can be seen from enough posts around here) but its called peaking at the right time.

    Athletes dont want to be running their fastest times in the lead up to a major comp but building up to being their best when it matters.

    4 years of being great and then failing counts for naught.

    Yup, exactly. Two wins for England and suddenly they're good again.

    Yeah, I understand you point, but England haven't been building at all. They've been consistently rubbish for four years, and then perform well in two games. It's not about peaking at all, in a way it's about luck. I'm not trying to detract from their performances, because they did play well, but it does strike me as pathetic how some England supporters suddenly think that two good wins makes up for four years of crap rugby.

    It's not "hate", it's gloating.

    Disagree with that slightly - England played excellently against Australia and played as well as they needed to against a jaded French side. Their group play had been woeful and how they got through, I will never know. Still, I'm more than willing to give them their dues... which leads into....

    Which is exactly right. I'm not too sure what it is about the English psyche that means that when their teams are doing badly, they'll unfairly bag them only for them to relaunch like the Lazarus Phoenix when they win a couple of games. This seems to hold for most English sporting teams. Vastly unfair on the teams themselves when they're doing 'badly' and sooooo annoying for the neutral when the English do win a couple of games.

    Okay. Since we've been **** for the last 4 years, we're suddenly not allowed to celebrate being in the world cup final?

    Gloating because your team has performed well in two games over four years?

    Of course you are... Celebrate all you like - no problem with that. Party like its 2003 if you like...
    But thinly (if at all) veiled tripe like:

    It's tongue in cheek. Nobody seriously believes we're better than New Zealand.
