You're right there, RMF. And welcome, Dan! They certainly have the ability and the crowd behind them, but I still think Germany have the edge in terms of temperament and tactics that Colombia lacked in the quarters.
amreda, better late than never!
Javier, it's a fantastically ridiculous read.
jy, I must admit I haven't seen much of Bernard, but Scolari trusts him above Willian, and I'm inclined to cede to Big Phil's wisdom on that one!
Aaron, I think people are being unduly harsh on him. He's chipped in with lots of effort, a goal, and has created 13 chances - the joint-highest in his side. Add in a passing accuracy of 87%, and he's had a good World Cup.
Gooner, Bender would be a great buy. He needs a centre-back to replace Vermaelen, a DCM and another forward I think.
If I were playing Football Manager as Arsenal, I'd snap up Bender, Veltman and Mame Diouf. But that's just me.
