I´ve come to the conclusion that we are pretty much saying the same thing... going back to the foto you posted... I´m glad he scored those two goals because it shows that he is not totally over. He needs to have more recognition for all that he has done in his career.

By saying he went is focusing on his national team - I meant that he is not going to get any kind of European Glory Dinamo Kiev, they just arent good enough. Maybe he will win some national trphies and championships... but overall this is his last time to shine on the European Stage... and im damn glad he did.

He used to be one of my favorite #9.


Yeah, now you're saying that...

To be the best, you must beat the best right?

Furthermore, how great would that be - corinthians vs boca. The two biggest clube in each respective country.

Who do you think tevez will cheer for? Lol

More Euro action today. France vs. Ukraine in a little bit. ESPN 2 in the states. I think France will win but I'm cheering for Shevchenko and the Ukraine. Let's see if the old horse can do it again!

Corinthians biggest in terms of revenues, but in terms of fan base, isn't Flamengo O mais querido do Brasil the biggest in Brazil, followed by Corinthians? ;)

Having watched the first leg of Santos vs. Corinthians, I would err on the side that Boca vs. Corinthians would be the more exciting match-up.  As for Carlitos, I don’t think it is even close to being debatable! ;)  El Apache bleeds Azul y Oro!!! :)))  Having said that, I know how much he likes Corinthians and am pretty sure if it were any other team, Latin American or European, Carlitos would be rooting for Corinthians...

Flamengo being the biggest in Brasil is still questionable. In terms of revenue no one comes even close to Corinthians. Flamengo has more prestige, they have more titles... but Flamengo has the most second team fans... For example many in Bahia cheer for their local teams and Flamengo...

Is it just me or are the Euros as dull as dish water? Waiting for it to really kick off - at least we know the Greeks can't afford to bribe their way to another final!!!

Well, until now, I've never been a footie fan, but I think I'm starting to understand the rules, and the wonderful tactical play that's put into effect.

Isn't it:- Take possession, then keep possession defending with all your might in the hope that you might eventually score?

The minute you stop defending skilfully, and you therefore allow yourself to lose possession, your opponent will pinch the ball and there's every chance, they instead of you, will score.

What a beautiful game indeed!

I think the reason football is usually frowned upon is because, in my opinion, the most important asset to a team is defending. If you defend well you are bound to not loose. This is generally used across the board, unless you are a team like Barcelona that keeps possession of the ball during 80% of the game (when the average is 55%) then you never have to defend. Your attacking is in fact defending.

Do you know what as much as I like football it wil never have the same virtues as rugby - you can beat the shit out of each other and still shake hands - never disrespect a referee and just get on with the game. If I see another footballer dive or rush up to a ref and abuse him then send him off and go play something that really matters!!

I agree with you Hartclass, playing dishonorably is a terrible thing to do in any game.

Italy vs Germany semi-final in about an hour.

Should be good. Really tough game to predict. I would take Germany if I had to bet but it would be a coin flip.

Pirlo is having an amazing tournament.
I want Italy to win the trophy because Spain plays a boring type of football.

Strongly disagree for this italian team.they dont play old football on the contrary i would say.dirty ok is a matter of view.

Spain has so talented players but the tactics they follow(no actual striker) makes them boring.

I'm going for Spain tomorrow, a combination of loving the country, most of their players, the beauty of their build-up play (even if they could use a traditional winger and striker to play those beautiful passes to) and hating Italy. I'm still not over their dive in the 2006 world cup haha

Wow, a FOOTBALL thread. Mental. Well I'm in!

I've had a bet on Italy since their first game in the tournament. They just seem like the side who make the most chances. For me spain can't make the killer ball at the moment without a striker so although Italy squander a lot of chances I still think they are the most likely out of both teams to win. Should be an interesting match.
