    Can no longer handle the creepy levels of obsession of British media with Maradona and Argentina, to which literally hours of tv time are devoted every week.

    But here they are mainly obsessed with how he "cheated" them out of that game in 1986. And then the line is "but he was a great player". So then hours of "do we love him or hate him?" To which the answer is basically: "he is a greasy Argie cheat but was a great player".

    The psychological basis for this is "we really wish he was English". Kind of like when someone cosntantly denigrates a sexual partner they can't have, but then lapses back into fantasizing about their exotic qualities.

    See what the World Cup does to people? you are lucky to not like football.

    I don't really think Cahill deserved to be sent off though. Plus you had a great chance early and just missed going up 1-0 before you could blink. Match might have been a bit different.

    But Germany definitely looked in control. Can't wait for the matches tomorrow! Netherlands v Denmark in particular.

    yes, the cahill decision was dicey...i set my alarm and got up for that match. at least it's a public holiday here today and i can recover.

    "You can all see how upset I am," said Cahill. "I'm sorry to be like this. I don't usually cry but I'm just hurt. To have my World Cup shattered in that way is one of the worst things I have ever experienced. I have been through a lot of different things in football but nothing this painful and I have to admit it's hit me really hard.

    "I don't have a clue what will happen now but what I can say for certain is that it's the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with as a footballer. Nothing comes close to this. It was my dream to play in my second World Cup and it was something so special for me to represent my country. To have it snatched away from me so quickly is a feeling I never want to experience again."

    sometimes the beautiful game hurts.
