    stubborn? well, ok. this is not the only place i talk about and inform me about football. this team might be effective to a certain point but it absolutely lacks of personalities.

    imo, this is an important factor to the game.

    What?

    Rivalries are vary with the sports involved because to have a rivalry you must have a sporting history with that particular country..

    Who cares why Austrians and Germans don't like each other? The German NT is very good and has a very good chance of winning Euro 2012. Fritzl can try to deny that as much as he likes, but pretty much everyone else in the world agrees.

    Batolelli has crazy talent, youth,and when he's on is huge. I think it might help the Italian team. Di natale should start against Germany and then at half depending on what's up put in Batotelli.

    I love watching Balotelli playing..

    He is a great player but put under pressure , he can be a bit of a loose canon..

    I think some of the people questioning or outright critizing Balotelli may want to stop and think he has only 12 caps and Sunday was only the third time he has played an entire match for 'gli Azzurri (other two were friendlies). He has only had spot appearances in 6 of the matches with much more playing time only starting against Spain two weeks ago.

    We are seeing him develop right in this tourney for the most part.

    With respect to his volatile temperment which I am well aware, what have we seen of that outside the first 15 minutes of the Spain game? We haven't. The guy has been stone faced and resolute barely any frustration. Yes, yes the goal "celebration" - seriously much ado about nothing.

    He could have done better but again lots of strikers blow chances. Inzaghi is famous for it and ever heard of Fernando Torres???

    My avatar gives it away of course, so I hope for the best Thursday (and beyond?). The dominance over Germany could finally give way but that is why they actually play the games.

    Best four nations are in the final four no doubt. Groups A and D were horrible so just that is its B&C represented. My predictions (hope).

    ESP 0 : 1 POR
    GER1 : 2 ITA

    POR 0 : 1 ITA

    He's a great player but his attitude over the last couple of years has been sort of ridiculous. He does seem to be improving though.

    This.

    The guy is nutty. Trying to defend him would be a pretty useless exercise. He stayed calm a few times for Man City and Inter, but even Mourinho said he was the dumbest player he's ever coached. He may look composed right now but he'll lose it. Maybe not in this tournament but it will happen.




    He looks like a world class tosser right there. Dude needs a SF membership, and quick.
