    and the Oscar goes to...Beck and O'reilly :bowdown: seriously, these guys should be in movies, i would watch them...:mrgreen: im speechless really, what a way to downgrade the U.S. team which just recently impressed the world.

    love how oreilly is playing the good guy haha. The obvious sarcastic acting and cheap shots are quite funny. Great entertainment but not worth 1 penny as news :)

    Their form of entertainment gets tiresome. Just when one of them start making a little bit of sense, they go all wacko. Can't watch them. Too much drama.

    The say they are #1 - Scary.

    well its finally over, the octopus was right. I must say, this loss doesnt feel as bad as i thought it would...im glad two teams that have never won have a chance to make history. The loss to Italy really hurt.

    Germany played like shit, too make bs mistakes, bad passes, no show of overwhelming energy...it was obvious they we very nervous...perhaps in this level when the stakes are so high, having more experienced players like ballack might have made a difference.

    This should make for a very intense final. History is going to be made. Im definitely cheering for the dutch. Go Netherlands :Cheers:.

    Ugh what a disappointing day. A true let down by a nervous Germany.

    Ugh.
    What a horrid game. Looks like another 3rd place trophy.
    Well, I do like the Dutch, so I'd really like to see them win, they deserve a Cup win more than anybody after so many disappointments. I'm really glad we beat Argentina at least, and made it this far, which is a lot farther than most people thought Germany would go.
    I think we should have had that penalty at the end of the first half. We should have had Muller today. And the coach certainly shouldn't have wasted a sub on Gomez, that guy is useless.

    they played like they just didnt care to advance. I saw no real effort made except for a few lousy ones...this game could and should have gone a totally different direction with germnay being in total control and dominance but for some odd reason it was like they didnt care enough...they just cracked. A huge let down by germany, i agree also about Gomez...just one bad decision after another... ugh!!

    Horrible, just horrible...at least its not France or Brazil in the final.

    I knew it was only a matter of time before Spain found a way into the net. This was almost a total repeat of Euro 08, which especially pisses me off the Germans couldn't produce something better. No possession = no win

    same here, they got lucky that they got away with just 1 goal against them...Spain isnt all that in this world cup, they had so many chances and they werent able to capitalize, this really could have easily been germany's game. They were just way too nervous.

    I was hoping they could at least keep it to 0-0 and take their chances with the shootout. Last world cup when they lost to italy i was pissed because they at least put up a decent fight. This time im not pissed at all, just very very disappointed, they put up no fight :(

    I haven't been here to be in this wonderful discussion the past month but the Netherlands are performing like champions in every match it seems like. I'm excited to see them go for their first ever Championship at the World Cup! I can't root for my Italians because they did so :pooh: this year... :'( So go Dutch! lol.
