    Terrible pity they did’nt bring in video technology. What was the linesman thinking. That match should be 2-2. I want Engalnd to win this more than anything now!

    That ref first he’s in the way and now he’s blind. I can’t believe it. The worst thing about football is the lack of appeals or appeals being allowed. It’s so clearly a goal and if it was F1 they’d (be inconcistent) but have a chance of righting the wrongs

    Yeah it was definitely a goal. Video technology should be embraced by football.

    However that makes things square after the “goal” in 1966…. ;-)

    I’m never going to whinge about lack of HD again in F1 when football is so lacking at something so crucial

    F1 fans moan about the lack of HD. At least it doesn’t change the results.

    The biggest sport in the world and it’s the most old fashioned.

    Being Irish, I’m still a bit sore over the whole “handball” thing so I’m probably biased towards the video refs and goal line technology. But once again a decision that is blatently obvious and the ref (and both linesmen!!!) have got it way wrong. Mr Blatter is not going to be on some peoples Christmas card list. Hmm….

    Very true Tommy – all the HD/3-D etc which F1 lacks have been brought in by broadcasters, not by FIFA.

    England deserve to lose. Defence are a shambles.

    Steph – there was no need for the word “defence” in that question ;-)

    Call it karma or divine justice, but after 44 years Germans have their revenge. :D

    Capello just said we played well…

    Humiliated is a fitting word.

    If Germany wins the WC at least we look better

    I spent the last 30 minutes of the match laughing. Terry could have easily been replaced with thin air, bringing Heskey on for Defoe is one of the best jokes ever, especially with Rooney scoring goals like nobody’s business at the moment… oh no, wait, I must have him confused with a good striker. Crouch and Defoe up front with Lennon on the wing would produce goals, as it has done all season long.

    It’s alright Ned. Every voodoo doll in Ireland was sold after the match in Paris.

    Here’s a video of the smug, handballing git!
