I really hope that England have stopped wasting time with Rooney by 2018.

I doubt we'll see some of the more senior players in this German team at the next World Cup. Schweinsteiger (who was...

I didn't enjoy 2002 very much at all. A lot of the big teams were weak that year and we ended up with some really shitty sides reaching the later stages.

The early morning kick offs sucked as well.

The Germans are a phenomenal force in world football. Their record speaks for itself.

For me it comes down to their mentality. They play a methodical, economical and very patient game where...

Messi is playing in a better team than Maradona did. Let's face it, this Barcelona side is in contention for being the best club side ever seen. It's easy to shine when you've got the very best...

I can't disagree with that. Messi has masses of natural ability and his close control is a joy to watch when he's at his best, but he's just missing something. I don't think he has the arrogance and...

Don't get me wrong, Messi is a very good player. He's the kind of player who makes you worry when he gets the ball. I was supporting Germany tonight and whenever Messi got the ball I was worried...

I'll tell you what I think Messi lacks: he lacks the elegance and poise of Zidane and Maradona, and he also lacks the downright cheek of Pele and Maradona.

Maradona had the arrogance and nerve to...

Ronaldo didn't deliver either. Some nice touches and glimpses of his class, but he was disappointing.

However, Ronaldo was playing in a vastly inferior team to the one Messi was playing in and only...

Maradona was a better player than Messi.

You don't define how good a player is by how many trophies they win. That says more about a team than an individual. If we're going by that kind of logic,...

As I've said before, his notable performances came in the group stages against the minnows. The further the tournament went and the better the opposition became the less effective Messi was.

Nope, it's perfectly true.

He scored some goals against minnows and then went missing at the business end of the tournament against the better teams.

His wildly off target free kick in the dying...

And never will be.

To be fair to Messi, Maradona's boots are almost impossible to fill. I can't see any player repeating what Maradona did in '86.

You're obsessed.

He flopped at this tournament.

Perhaps it's time for you to accept that he's not as great as you think he is. He's been hyped and likened to Maradona, but he's not in that class...

I can think of plenty of players who had a better tournament.

I haven't bought into any myths.

That's not really a fair assessment of some of the more recent Brazil teams.

They haven't hit the heights of 70 or 82, but there have been some entertaining Brazil teams since then.

The one thing...

He was never that good in the first place.

His management and a poor set of players (by Brazil's standards) have left them humiliated at this World Cup.

I don't see how he can keep his job after...

I would make Germany the slight favourites and I certainly hope that they win, but I think this will be a very close game and I don't see many goals either.
