  1. True that. Without curaçao we wouldn't have been anywhere. The facilities in the Netherlands are kinda crap.
  2. The dutch also have a somewhat good team. We won the world championship in 2011 and are the best in Europe.
  3. You could try following the Champions League. Could be a bit less overwhelming.
  4. Messi the best player. Who would have thought..... If think the group phase was the most fun to watch this cup. Didn't see a lot of finals that stood out appart except for Germany - Brazil off course.
  5. Stop messing with my feelings.
  6. Congratulations.
  7. I like it so far.
  8. Should have been another card. Within 8 minutes I have my opinion about this ref.
  9. And his name is?
  10. That's a tough question. But for defense I nominate Ron Vlaar.
  11. They come from the FIFA website. Now they wouldnt lie now won't they ;)
  12. I thought I had those stats posted but I havent and I deleted my txt file with the tables but look at http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/statistics/players/attacking.html Messi had 7 solo's into the area. Robben had 17.
  13. I came to the same conclusion as you did after seeing the stats. I guess for me my bias comes from being Dutch. And the only thing I hear about Messi is that he is so great, so good, the best, pisses pure gold, shits diamonds etc etc etc. When someone tells me a movie is the best movie he has ever seen and it beats every movie out there I am kinda expecting a lot. But in comparrison based on stats he is indeed better.....but not that much and certainly not worth the extra oooh's and aaah's and appart from running, Robben had a bit more solos and I think that made him more dangerous
  14. I was talking about who I thought was the best off those four players and I thought you continued along side that discussion. I misunderstood you.
  15. Well as said I was biased. I am not drawing conclusions based on the stats below other than Robben is the fastest and out distanced all of them.
