    Oh well, guess we'll have to see how Ronaldo does in the upcoming Spanish league. Kick-off may come early this year round.

    heh, I see your point.

    I just find English commentators too downbeat though. And they moan about every little thing instead of just enjoying it for what it is. It's like "you get paid to watch football, at least stop complaining and sound as if you want to be there!"

    We would actually have played better without Ronaldo so let Real Madrid have him.

    If I had no interest in the game, I would say argentina would win. But as it stands I do have an interest, and I am scared of Germany! They are an efficient and well-organized team even if they don't have great players on paper.

    Though the defence is not great. This is the one hting that gives me some reassurance.

    Yep, I think Brasil will make the final. And probably win.

    Argentinians are very talented - no doubt there (though the attack is better than the defense in my opinion). But as you said Germans are very well organized and a group team. There is not much of this "me me" attitude, that is very often the case with teams with highly talented and well-known players (say Muller sending it of to Podolski in the match with England). And a well organized defense can be a problem - I remember one European Cup where Greece won that way.
