tbh my main beef with the ITV coverage is the guy singing "brasil, brasil" at the bookends of each ad break. I find it really grating for some reason.
Man, Pirlo is just the sexiest man alive, isn't he? The way he strolled about on that pitch, in that heat, giving out masterful passes to teammates and making it look easy in the process... A draw would not have been out of place here, but I was still sad when his final free kick hit the bar. That was a thing of beauty.
They released some new World Cup costumes in LittleBigPlanet which look pretty awesome.
@phili151: Shearer isn't just a personality sink in his own personality, he also actively reduces the personality in the studio with his demands. Apparently he was the main reason Colin Murray (who, whether you liked him or not, undeniably had personality) was binned from MotD2 and then from the rest of the BBC.
In general I think the TV channels rely to heavily on people who were good/great players, journalists and players of any class who've proved themselves as analysts/commentators after retirement make for so much better TV than the likes of Shearer and Phil Neville.
The whole Italian team look as they they should be playing in Oxford shirts, Blazers, tailored shorts and loafers with no socks.....and at half time they should all just sit at little tables by the side of the pitch sipping on Espressos and reading a broadsheet newspaper....
@thomasnash: Rooney has been pretty poor all night, apart from his assist. I was surprised the hodge didn't take him off instead of Welbeck.
I was looking at the TV like this o.O because Welbeck was the only player on our side (apart from Sterlin) who appeared to be creating clear cut chances. I honestly cannot wait until Gerrard retires, he seems so tired and out of place in this young England side... still I was pleasantly surprised by Englands performance on the whole... already lightyears more promising than the 2010 team.
GOAL LINE TECH GET HYPE!!!!
Haha, amazing crowd reaction to the 'No Goal' caption, then the quick 'Goal' decision!
What a dumb way to show it. It was like they were trying to wind up the crowd...the commentator on the BBC is having a siezure about it.
As far as I could see it work great. No way that could have been given with out the system because the ref would never have seen it.
EDIT: Also I get the feeling that one of the Honduras players is going to pull a knife out of his socks in a minute....no wonder its the country with the highest murder rate in the world...
@skidd: That is excellent. Also noted misogynist and all around twat Richard Keys believing his eyes better than a camera with actual proof.
Its amazing that having a set view point on something will make you disbelieve the literal evidence of your own eyes...
@leebmx: Pat Nevin gained the nickname 'The Professor' when he was once found by his teammates to be reading a book in the dressing room. Maybe he's buying into the idea of being the intellectual pundit a bit too much
@phili151: The inability of an idiot like Keys to recognise that was a goal perhaps does support his point that it is indeed not fool proof.
