indeed mate. pathetic is the most appropriate word. the saddest thing is that's not a surprise to anyone who watched italy playing in the last 2 years. this is how italy has been playing ever since lippi came back.neoexodus said:So far, your pathetic.
u're a nice guy pipa, but honestly we WERE really bad. infact this is the worst italy team i've ever seen in my life.i still belive on world cup there is no bad teams...italy was not bad, france was not bad but this is all in the heads of players...today i saw my country team with clear minds, they belived, they play without nerves... Italy HAD to , we could.... i thank all Italian guys who accept that we won.... But you are 4 times world champions, for us as whole this is dream... i hope you will chear us in next rounds.... Grazie!!!
yeah maybe it was that.lami said:Lippi was very wrong. Very wrong. I always liked him at juve, but this time he just lost it. Must be something in the cigar...
As stated in the Germany thread, this has nothing to do with Italy or the people. The thing is mainly how you play and act during a game(and of course the fact you knocked us out in 2006), I would react in this way to any nation doing this stuff, it is just not my understanding of football and professionalism, what some players in your team do. As an example I would like to show the person of Quagliarella: Great footballer, very good technique(wonderful goal today), but why in God's name does he have to simulate in SUCH a theatrical way? Look above, I said, it is definitely a red card for Mucha, but he certainly does not need to die on the pitch.LOL! whenever italy has a bad result, a classy german pops up. that's exactly what happened 2 years ago after italy went out of the euro. a german guy was the first to show up in the italy thread and rejoice at our loss with a classy "yeah spaghetti out!"
Congratulations man, but no I think its full of bad 'teams', as usual no surprise there, other things are way more important at WCs and Slovakia had it today.i still belive on world cup there is no bad teams...
that sounds weird, coming from a brazilian. brazil is the only country which won more world cups than usI feel sorry for the Italian friends here, but I didn't want you to succeed, as usual too no surprise there 4 times is enough.
This is true. Was one of the few games with two teams attacking each other till the end. If every match would be like this one, the WC would be a "real" WC instead of some nations neutralizing each other with the same boring defending system.As for the match itself, wow those last 30 minutes were probably THE most exciting 30 mins of World Cup we've had so far! Good football, urgency and tension from both teams, roller-coaster! Great stuff for the neutral!
Where the hell was maggio??that sounds weird, coming from a brazilian. brazil is the only country which won more world cups than us
i do see your point though
as for the upcoming italy, we can't say how good the team will do under prandelli, of course.
but we can definitely say that with prandelli in charge we will see the real italy. the best players will be choosen from now on, that's for sure.
cassano, balotelli, bonucci, ranocchia, maggio, pazzini, they will all come in. finally italy will show what italy really has to offer in terms of quality.
Do you? My point is that I don't want you tying it up.that sounds weird, coming from a brazilian. brazil is the only country which won more world cups than us
i do see your point though
Uuuh baby, those final mins were insane, like I said in another I know once teams got desperate open games would happen, just look at this and USA yesterady.As for the match itself, wow those last 30 minutes were probably THE most exciting 30 mins of World Cup we've had so far! Good football, urgency and tension from both teams, roller-coaster! Great stuff for the neutral!
and ???? ....US won their group and was down 2 goals at the half. They won the group on injury time goal at that.So, trailing means nothing we have a saying here "It`s not how you start but how you finish that counts"Italy deserved to go out. They didn't even lead a game at any point of this competition.
yeah, i perfectly understand. u wanna remain the only one leading the world in world cup wins, and italy's the only team which could possibly reach uDo you? My point is that I don't want you tying it up.
he came in in the last 20 minutes, and created more scoring chances in those 20 minutes than zambrotta did in the whole tournament. his very first pass could have turned to be an assist (that sweet through ball for di natale).lami said:Where the hell was maggio??
