    Aaaaand farewell to the Dutch (don't worry, I'm not celebrating). Louis Van Gaal can begin life in the Premier League as an alleged Dutch Alex Ferguson, and mastermind of football (who, by the way, drew two consecutive games 0-0. Oh and that "master stroke" which was bringing on Tim Krul came about because the first choice goalkeeper has never saved a penalty, and happens to be a lot smaller than Krul... maybe I've tapped into a higher level of thinking, but doesn't that seem like an obvious choice?!?).

    Alas, for all his credentials, he shall be unfulfilled... No World Cup trophy to keep him warm on those cold evenings in Manchester...

    Kudos to the Argentinians. Won, eventually, what was a very tough game.

    Smart money to win the tourney is naturally on Germany. Don't see them savaging Argentina in the same way they did Brazil, but they'll probs win through. Should be a fun one!!



    I think the whole "genius" thing was more saving that last substitution just in case, not for the switch. Then again, he didn't save the sub against Argentina, and started RVP after the sorry performance against Costa Rica with 1000 offsides. If he had started Huntelaar instead of RVP, saving him that last sub, I might say he is a football genius, but one stroke of genius doesn't make one a genius.

    Fun World Cup. The best team won I think.

    Observations:

    Messi didn't deserve player of tournament, and he knew it. I think Robben was better.

    Tim Howard should have won Golden Glove award.

    Earth Mother, Ganesha, Ra, Zeus, Jupiter, Mithra, Jesus, Allah,... GOD...  and the Internet God of conspiracies... I beg you:

    It´s been a good world cup, that´s for sure. Germany was a well deserved winner ( not to say Argentina did not deserve to win) and that semi final against brazil was quite something.

    Messi getting the PotT award was consolation prize I guess, but not one he deserved.

    Howard had an arguably much worse defense in front of him than Neuer, but on the other hand, when Neuer had to do something he completely owned his box.

    On to silly summer and transfer specualtions :)

    The final was boring as usual. But apart from that this is the best world cup i can remember seeing. I can remember back to mexico 86 :P

    Forum signatures make my eyes hurt so i have turned them off.

    Highlight for me was actually going to Brazil, watching a couple of games live at the Maracana, being in the Copacabana fanfest for a Brazil game. 
    Once in a lifetime holiday. Loved the world cup in Brazil. Not looking forward to the next couple.
