That is a walk out offence.

I love the sport, but the almost nonstop awful- actually comical- calls frustrate me to no end. In the final yesterday there were easily 25+ calls that I 100% disagreed with, from goal kicks...

Holland are leaky at the back, but will score goals. No keeper on the planet could have saved von bronchorsts strike or Robbens header. I really now have no idea who will win. Probably going to come down to a mistake on the day or a wonder goal. Possibly a penalty shoot out? Now that would be...

I can just remember sitting hanging upside down sort of looking at my friend (we were about 10) and then suddenly jumping out and trying to right it before his dad saw. It was a pretty dumb thing to do. Remember a few yers back...
