The last one is brilliant! It really looks like a goal from Frank Lampard, but in reality it’s just another monumental fuck up from a FIFA official during an important football game!

    Aaaaaw … come on, don’t be a bad loser.
    Even the english press said it wouldn’t have mattered … the german team dominated, and it was a pulsating game after all.

    Great post, as an England fan I can appreciate this one!

  10. Did Germany deserve to win? Yes.
    They played the better football over 90mins. England defending was poor all game. The fact is though when Lampard’s goal was wrongly disallowed the momentum was with England and 2-2 at half time would have brought a different complexion to the play in the 2nd half. England were caught twice on the counter attack when they shouldn’t have been chasing the game. Sad thing for the game was that England “scored” the equaliser in the first half. It would have been more exciting with a tighter contest and maybe even extra time again.

    I’m tired of FIFA not acting and helping the officials. They can’t keep dismissing video technology when ALL major sports use video referrals to help officials. It won’t ruin the game. We’re happy to watch a player pretend to be in agony for 2mins and wait for play to resume but 30secs reviewing a decision from 3 angles or whatever that will “ruin the game and change it too much”…Give me a break. Fans would rather have the correct decision every time.

      “The fact is though when Lampard’s goal was wrongly disallowed the momentum was with England and 2-2 at half time would have brought a different complexion to the play in the 2nd half.”

      After 2:1 (and the not counting 2:2) the Germans were a little bit shocked – obviously. With a 2:2 they wouldn’t have been shocked much more or less, I think.

      So in the 2nd half, the English had to force the game to win it either way (as everybody knows: they lose *every* penalty shoutout). And as we know: they didn’t. The Germans won the momentum again with phantastic gameplay. The English didn’t goal a single more time. ‘Nuff said. ;->

      And last but not least: After Wembley ’66 now the English have 44 years time to go through, where the Germans are gone through … 😉

    linesman shud be watching the player, not the ball. nth wrg.

      Well, if you see the recording auf the famous Wembley goal: You can’t see the ball, because the keeper was between ball and camera.

      I think in 2010, the ball was hidden behind (a) player(s), so the referees couldn’t see, what all others saw. Shit happens – at least: the better team won …

  14. Dear ajajaj,

    When the ball goes over the goal-line in football this is called a “goal”.

    When the ball goes over the goal-line in football and it is not given as a “goal” there is something wrong.

    Thanks for reading.

  16. […] So, it was no surprise that the World Cup 2010 departure of some big teams has also led to some quite fun humour (for some countries, the early exit of their teams has been a tragedy). My two favourites are: “So, an Englishman, a Frenchman, an Italian and an American walk onto a plane.” (Yes, that’s the whole joke…). Or, this series of optical illusions that need to be seen to be believed. […]
