My God. My absolute God. 3 goals in 2 minutes from Germany.

It was like a moment from a ludicrous game of FIFA against my drunk younger brother.

They went into lock down/shock after Germany scored so quickly and easily.
I have never seen so many goals scored with such speed at any level.

I feel like I am watching a game that will be referred to for years.

You tell 'em, aderynias! It's not over until the final whistle!

That will be one heck of a pep talk in the changing rooms in the interval. Poor guys.

JohnFarleysRuskin Tue 08-Jul-14 21:46:59

Oof do you think the team will come back?

Booed off. poor sods. I'm coming over all British and feeling sorry for the underdogs

PacificDogwood Tue 08-Jul-14 21:49:25

Booing them off was v unkind and unnecessary. I am sure they feel quite bad enough all by themselves.

It's about ten years since I've seen Alan Hansen and he is still resplendent. I definitely would.

Me too.

So far my dad, sis and nephew have all called to make sure my DP is watching it grin

^^sorry for being totally off topic, I was overwhelmed! grin

PacificDogwood Tue 08-Jul-14 21:54:14

rootypig, I know you did not ask but YABVU <frown>

shock Rio Ferdinand's trousers!!!! shock!

Sorry for the tirade of filth, just turned it on and am shock

Oh this is awful. I was hoping for a Netherlands/Brazil final but it's going to be Germany/Argentina.

If I were them I wouldn't come back after half time.

Oh and the Columbian tackle on Neymar was vvicious.

rootypig Tue 08-Jul-14 21:56:52

Yes I know sorry blush


PacificDogwood Tue 08-Jul-14 21:58:07

I do support Germany (as if you hadn't guessed), but i so hope Brazil catch up a bit and regain some of their dignity.

rooty, re Rio, YANBU grin

gordyslovesheep Tue 08-Jul-14 21:59:45

oh I think it's brilliant grin

My German boyfriend is squirming with compassion and embarrassment.

rootypig Tue 08-Jul-14 22:01:55

I never watch football, not since the 90s and I had to see the European Cup on Wednesday nights because we had one telly grin

But I've just yammed my dad and bro on whatsapp and sent out for chocolate

Brazil back on the pitch, so that's a start

What on eaaaaaarth is going to happen

hoobypickypicky Tue 08-Jul-14 22:03:25

Booing is appalling. A fan should never boo their own team.

I'd love to see Brazil pull it back but I think I've more chance of winning the lottery. sad

PacificDogwood Tue 08-Jul-14 22:04:39

I just really want them to play well in the second half - not too well, but well wink

AbbieHoffmansAfro Tue 08-Jul-14 22:04:42

My German friend has just texted me to say "It's just like watching Brazil".

LEMmingaround Tue 08-Jul-14 22:05:11

They could still pull it back grin

rootypig Tue 08-Jul-14 22:05:11

3 dives in 3 minutes

okilydokily Tue 08-Jul-14 22:05:11

rootypig I'm with you on the Alan Hansen thing. He's a no-nonsense type of manly man. And that scar just seals the deal! He does a good scowl.

JohnFarleysRuskin Tue 08-Jul-14 22:06:30

The way the brazilians played against the Colombians (before that tackle) was indefensible.

I'm really pleased to see their come uppance.

But I feel bit sorry for them too.

I'm clearly too soft for football. I nearly cried for the poor lad who missed the third penalty in the Netherlands game and this is just too painful to watch.
