Anyone calling it "soccer" is a complete use your own swear-filter-starred expletive here.

USA lost to Ghana.

England vs. Germany....

Well what do you think eh?
You're a fool.

P.S. Soccer is a British word.

I maybe a fool but I'm no idiot whereas you are a complete arse!

Soccer is a bastardisation of Association Football but nobody ever uses the term unless they are trying to talk to muppets

Or in any number of places where football refers primarily to a different game. It's not hard to understand, and it's not a big deal. It just is.



Muppets!

Football is a game played with a round ball, using feet to project the ball into the goal.

Use of the head is allowed, although if you are Diego Maradona, you can also be a cheating bastard and scoop the ball into the net using your hand.

No-one calls it soccer and survives serious ****-taking

I remmeber when Lance Armstrong was winnign the tour;alots of interest. Now it has pretty mcuh commoned down. Its being heavily promoted but like F1 may never really take hold anyhting like football;basketball and baseball or even golf. Golf is by far the favorite international sport. Football is like soccer in europe.Even colege football is light years ahead of soccer in this country.

I hope Germany beats the living $hit out of your crappy, cry baby team!! You don't even deserve to be in this round and the best thing you should do is to shut your pie hole! It's your primary sport that you freaking invented and yet you have only won it once in 19 freaking 66!!! Yeah... I'd shut my pie hole and go away, you guys pretty much SUCK at your own sport! Case closed!

Germany 4
The other team 0

Actually you yanks didn't deserve to win the group, it was only through the admittedly crap performance of ENGLAND that you did, and as "the truth will out", you have now buggered off, so shut up, loser. Also, if you ever saw England play aside from this particular tournament and their three games so far, you would see how much they really "SUCK" or not. With your childish nonsense, sounds like you need to go suck something, a freaking pacifier! Anyway us Englishmen on this board must stick together and not let the moronic spoilt-offspring childish slack-jaw "cousins" across the pond sh!& in our proverbial tea.

As for hyped up national football teams, what about the bloody threads in this forum about "USA making the top 4 in the world cup" and this "American sports revolution Bologna?" Case in point. So much for that, Ameritwats.

My inclination is always to root for England after the USA. You're changing that. Besides, as Bill Parcells put it, "You are what your record says you are." And in this case, that means second best in Group C. Enjoy getting the crap beat out of you by the Germans. Again.
