\'...there are too many pull-outs, it seems to be everyone has got an excuse, and I can tell you when I was at Tottenham, when full internationals came around, there were two or three players who did not want to play for England.

\'They would come to me 10 days before the game and say: ‘Gaffer, get me out of that game, I don’t want to play in that game.’ That was how it was. I’d say: ‘You’re playing for your country, you should want to play.’
\'‘Nah, my girlfriend is having a baby in four weeks, I don’t want to play’ and that is the truth, so it makes you wonder. And I think it’s only going to get worse. You see the stick the England players get and they come home, they’re earning fantastic money at their clubs, they’re all playing in the Champions League. They think: ‘Do we need the aggro?”’

- \'Arry Redknapp, talking to BBC Radio 5

I can see their point, actually. Internationals are about as exciting and relevant as Miss World or the Eurovision Song Contest. Anyone else think so?

I mean, top flight games are international anyway, so what is the point of sending everyone home every couple of years and then beating yourself up if they don\'t deliver?

I am waiting for the young players to come through the Canadian academies.

126Canada  HenriDeToi2014-06-24 19:26:25
Netherlands sure look good and must make my friend Windmill very happy.

127Canada  HenriDeToi2014-06-25 23:44:28
There goes France... One more non-european team :P

128Canada  HenriDeToi2014-06-26 22:56:29
@ # 93; do you think this little Canadian can cut it


129Canada  dsuttles2014-06-27 13:10:23
Actually he is the very one I am waiting for. Can he play in goal as well?

# 87

130Canada  HenriDeToi2014-06-27 13:56:15
He can, but he is more of a Messi type, with a low center of gravity and very quick.

131Netherlands  Koning WillemII2014-06-27 21:18:40
just arrived in Fortaleza for the Mexico game.
Counting on your support Windmill
You will recognize me by my orange shirt!!!

134Canada  dsuttles2014-07-01 13:27:09
Man of the tournament?


135Canada  HenriDeToi2014-07-05 22:58:40
The Dutch are clutch

136Canada  dsuttles2014-07-07 14:56:21
Louis van Gaal will take charge at Manchester United as soon as Holland’s World Cup campaign ends – official.

137Canada  dsuttles2014-07-13 02:26:10
Isn\'t the white strip on loan from Leeds United?

Anger management therapy for Viriol -


138Canada  dsuttles2014-07-13 02:32:20
Who do you fancy in the final, Viriol? Germany or Messi?

139Russian  kai20112014-07-13 13:13:25
I hope Your prognosis never come true!

* 127\"The only team to go undefeated in regulation time.\"
Which team, that were undefeated in 90 minutes, you mean? There were many.

141Canada  dsuttles2014-07-13 18:54:46
Lionel Messi did not touch the ball in the penalty area during the 120 minutes against Holland.

142Netherlands  Koning WillemII2014-07-15 23:01:31
Well back home again, it was great in Brazil but we all feel a bit sad.
i think we should have done better against
Germany and losing by penalties has happened to us so many times
But still we are all proud, third place was much more than we expected.

143Canada  HenriDeToi2014-07-16 19:48:25
They should change the rules so that the team wins without those shootouts. This should be a team sport and they should play overtime until someone scores or they drop. Too much luck also goes into those shootouts. The goalies have absolutely no chance except if they happen to guess it right or the shooter shoots directly at them.

144Russian  kai20112014-07-16 19:58:56
Already was!!! The lot...

145Canada  dsuttles2014-07-17 13:50:29
A shootout ruins a match, but going beyond 120 minutes could derail the tournament. Argentina had a day less than Germany to rest for the final and played 30 minutes more in their semi. If they had gone beyond 120 minutes against Holland, I don\'t think they would have been able to do it again in the final.

Make the games shorter and the goals bigger, as some USA fans say?

146Russian  kai20112014-07-17 14:16:40
The shedule of championship was not made for special teams! According more goals: after 90 minutes - 9 players and field less(10 metres length and width), each 10-15 minutes same procedure! I think this will work!

147Russian  kai20112014-07-19 09:27:18
Well! We may hang up the players ( Messi and so on) who missed their chances... Would You feel better than?

148Canada  HenriDeToi2014-07-19 11:58:42
Soccer balls sometimes take weird trajectories once up in the air. Sometimes they rise or curve unnexpectantly. - In any event, Messi, Ronaldo and all of these football players are filthy rich

149Russian  kai20112014-07-19 15:31:34
Once upon a time... Many tales started with this words! How much finished happy?

150Canada  HenriDeToi2014-07-20 01:13:46
If you\'re not happy when you\'re poor; you won\'t be happy when you\'re rich.

151Canada  HenriDeToi2014-07-20 13:26:17
What do I know about football I am an ice hockey fan. After all, I\'m Canadian

- Just one question: Why do football players dive and fall to the ground as if they were shot through the heart by a high powered rifle then rise from the dead and play as if nothing happened

152Canada  dsuttles2014-07-20 13:56:14
I went to a fight once and an ice hockey match broke out.
