    Blatter was quoted yesterday or today as saying that FIFA will revisit replay technology:

    http://soccernet.espn.go.com/world-c...cc=5901&ver=us

    I won't celebrate until we see change but this is good. At least Blatter doesn't have his thumbs in his ears while chanting "lalalalalala"




    yeah i saw that..thanks.

    well.. .. 0-0 .. the bad news is that Paraguay is a much stronger, taller and more physical squad.. doesn't look good for Japan in the 2nd half

    I don't know... Japan players ran like machines in the previous games.

    I can't believe Honda's shot didn't go in. Watching that replay hurts (T_T)

    Paraguay is playing crappily. Soon Japan will get one through, history will be made

    Blatter is possibly open to the idea of (at least) goal line tech. Video replay should still be up for discussion but he's still saying no.

    At least he's apologetic, we'll see what they're going to do:

    FIFA President Apologizes for Refereeing Errors


    yeah like apologies will do anything at this stage. we have to wait for another 4 yrs..

    Paraguay defense is so boring. There's no finesse at all, they just doubleteam and muscle the ball away

    I was thinking that myself lol

    Last 5 min of regulation had strong attacks from both sides, ending with a bullshit yellow on a Honda breakaway

    I just tuned in. The commentators sound bored as hell. The spectators are pretty mute, too.
