I don't think anyone here is arguing that we are.  ;D

Man...if we can get past Ghana, we're going to go up against Uruguay.  And not to disrespect Uruguay, but much better them than Spain, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, or Portugal.  Dare I say it?  Do we actually have a shot at reaching the semifinals?

This run was always seen as being a soft touch to the semis... which is why here in England people were virtually writing us into the semi-finals already. The "big" teams in the groups (Italy and France) were considered faded... France struggled immensely in qualifying and Italy haven't been setting the world on fire. With them out it becomes an even simpler run. With the groups ending the way they did one "lesser" team will make the semis.

In contrast due to England's inability to pass a ball to each other, catch a ball or regularly put the ball in the back of the net if we're the make the semis we have to go through Germany... and probably Argentina.

I think this is the end of the road for America.

Ghana look to be a really good football team, and I think they'll pip this one.

Don't get me wrong, the Americans deserve to be at this stage, and they'd played well.  But luck can only take you so far.

You know...I wanted to bitch and complain about the game, especially because I felt like, once again, we gave up too much slack and we left the other team WIDE OPEN to do whatever plays they had. But ultimately, USA tried. They got further ahead than most people thought they would and while it sucked to loose...they had a good run. Howard and Donovan are wicked and have A LOT of talent and Bradley is just a little firecracker in the making.

They tried. They were beat. Next time, USA, next time.

Hopefully tomorrow, Argentina will beat the shit out of Mexico lol
And when the time comes...Uruguay will kick Ghana out.

Aw, man, the magic is gone.  :'(

We were outplayed. It's as simple as that. I underestimated the Ghana offense, as I suspect the US team did, and while the equalizer was exciting, there was little doubt that the better team won.  As much as it sucks to lose, good job, Ghana. You won fair and square.

Good luck, England! Good luck, Brazil!

These BBC MOTD pre-match build-ups are pathetic.  All this television license money being spent on turning this World Cup campaign in to the battle for the world.  This biased coverage shouldn't even be allowed.  It's the British Broadcasting Corporation, not the English Broadcasting.  And... I've lost count how many times they referenced their '66 win this past week.

And Alan Hansen is a traitor.

A ref fucks up the World Cup YET again.

Sebb Blatter will keep rubbing his hands and say there's no need for goal-line tech and that it ruins the game.

The referee will continue on with his life probably getting more high profile assignments.

For all the good stuff, the story of this World Cup has been a series of referee fuck ups that have ruined games.

Jorge Larrionda has always been a terrible ref... a ref who was previously suspended due to suspected corruption. Even beyond that his decisions are generally woeful. He's already cost Serbia passage to the second round due to fucking up and now, whoever wins this match, he's fucked up yet again.

Guess what the consequences will be?

Sweet fuck all.
