    Players who roll over four or five times when they’ve tripped over another players leg !

    Not exactly confined to the World Cup that though is it really.

    Commentators that blow smoke up the host nations arse and biased officials that give penalties that aren’t and disallow perfectly good goals.

    What’s wrong with that? All in England aren’t they? I’d rather see that than the stuff you get in the PL.

    That ref was horrendous btw

    Yep – I don’t think he was biased but I think that he bottled it big time on that Neymar elbow. That was a sending off all day long – he looked at the ball, looked at the Croatian fella, then raised his elbow knowing full well it was gonna smack the guy in the face. He probably thought “poster boy of the Brazilian team, opening game, they’re losing, the whole world watching, I’ll play it safe with a yellow” but his thought process if it had been a Croatian player would have been different with the stadium up in arms & the Brazilian team surrounding him & I think he’d have shown a red

    The penalty was just really poor refereeing. Touching a player is not a foul but again I think he let the occasion get to him. he then compounded his mistake by cautioning the Croatian player for the foul – even if it had been a genuine foul, that type of challenge isn’t cautionable. It was like that prat in Maribor who seemed to think that any foul or offence in the penalty area is an automatic caution.

    In the interests of fairness though, I think he was right in disallowing that Croatian goal when it was still 2-1

    50/50 challenge that the keeper lost I thought. Hate the protection that keepers get considering they already have an advantage.

    I agree they do get protected too much – When he initially jumped up the forwards arm was across the keeper’s chin, neck & chest. That’s a foul just as it would/should have been on another outfield player.
    If the forward’s arm hadn’t been like that then to me it was just 2 players jumping into each other.

    That said, whoever that Italian guy was that ITV had on as a pundit (Fabio someone or other) claimed that it’s in FIFA’s rules that you cannot touch a keeper in any way in the 6 yard area. That isn’t true even if it often seems that way

    I think we can add ITV as a whole and the majority of the BBC pundits are World Cup irritations.

    ITV should be banned from all forms of sport. Dreadful, dreadful viewing.

    Is it me, or is Adrian Chiles getting uglier by the day?

    I would exclude Lee Dixon, who now works for ITV. I find his comments intelligent and interesting.

    I’m fed up with Andy Townsend, who would always have done better than the present players manage to do.

    Players who ‘rise to the occasion’.

    When did Beausejour ever do that for us?

    Why do they have to be in a studio overlooking Copa Cobana Beach? Look at the money they would save if they were still in a Manchester Studio or London in the case of ITV. Complete waste of time.

    As for Townsend. My Mrs on Thursday – ” Who is this Townsend guy? He talks a lot without actually saying anything”!!

    The master of the “Can’t we get you on Mastermind – specialist subject ” The Bleedin’ Obvious?”

    We will need a new scapegoat now Gomes has gone. I hope that it won’t be Beausejour.

    He’s not a winger like McClean, thank goodness. But I thought he was an excellent wingback when Bobby played three at the back.

    Somehow, I think he too will find a new home for next season.
