    Well, Of course we follow the matches. :p I usually schedule my lunch hour so I can watch the 2nd half at the office cafeteria and the rest of the match through Internet streamings...

    Ok, Spain 0-2 down to Brazil.

    What is the world coming too? Spain are the footballing equivalents of a Deer in headlights.
    C'mon Spain, I need you. Think of my Paddy Power betting account :cry:

    I do. But I would prefer they lift the trophy so I can win the equivalent of a couple of pints ;)

    I wonder if the extra time against Italy and 1 day less of rest played a role in tonight's score. I'm not trying to play down what Brazil did, of course, they were simply unstoppable and destroyed an unrecognizable Spanish side.

    EDIT: Anyway, I feel that how Italy played Spain is definitely the way to face the Roja, and Brazil played it almost perfectly.

    It doesn't make it funnier to post it twice. But seriously, it can't be a double post as the smilie changes from the end to the start of the line :dunno:

    Game was okay, but I went to bed after the winner was clear (around minute 10 or so :D)

    The referee did seem to favour Spain, e.g. Oscar should have got booked several times, and the ref gave Spain some very strange "advantages". But that didn't make any difference in the end.

    I think David Luiz won the match for Brazil with his goal-line save. Imagine if that had gone in -- 1-1 at that time in the game and Spain will suddenly have the psychological advantage and momentum going into the 2nd half. Instead, Brazil get their 2nd and it's all but over for Spain.

    Spain really didn't show up though, they only have themselves to blame for that.

    Yes, Spain were destroyed psychologically by that. A split second away from being 1-1… then you're 0-2 down. on top of it, you're 0-3 down and you miss a penalty straightaway. I, for one, welcome our new rioting overlords.

    Usually there is a slew of bets a few hours or a day before a big transfer.
    Apparently some bookmakers have stopped taking bets on Suarez moving to.....Arsenal.

    I think somebody is winding a lot of people up. That is never going to happen :p

    I would actually stop supporting Arsenal if they signed Suarez.
