    It's like watching paint dry watching Spain they make ten passes when one will do the same job and end up at the same spot as it started the Russian keeper hardly had a shot to stop. All the passes went across the pitch or backwards, almost like watching Edgy play.

    Read a stat on line this morning that Spain completed more passes in the game than Russia had in the four games they have played. Didn’t do them much good did it.

    There's this odd notion that passing football is the greatest form of the game. Personally I prefer having two wingers who can cross and a fucking big striker who heads like a traction engine in the middle.

    The purpose of passing is to find a free man rather than simply moving the ball. Someone needs to remind Spain about that.

    Of the 4 games in the last 16, three of the teams with the most possession have ended up losing the game (Argentina, Portugal and Spain)

    Agreed - bring back Andy Hoskins at our level and Duncan Ferguson for the Toffees

    I see ITV have two goes at eliminating England before the semi final - they've got our quarter-final as well as the last 16 game

    Japan did well, would've been a real upset there but Belgium and especially Fellaini are good.

    The Japs were unlucky not to go into extra time. All these knockout matches have been good, close scores or the dreaded penalties !
