Couldnt have said it any better.. Just because the ball went into the net doesnt mean its a "disallowed goal"..gOD said::yuck:
This is disgusting. Not the soo called corruption but the reactions here. Sure korea got lucky with the ref today, but if you know your football just a little you see these were 2 stupid decisions. But none of both called disallowed a goal directly. The ref whistled twice before he saw it waould be a goal. The second one was even an easy catch for the goallie iof he had played after the whistle.
I don't get this because it is Korea they bribe refs. Germany on the other hand who were the weaker team against USA where very lucky the ref diodn't spiot a clear hands (or was it a goal already). Why is that just a mistake? :fero:
clap clap clapjulien100 said:all those anti asian crap that you guys are bringing are just scandalous. Why blaming your own team when you can blame the ref ? That's all i can think of when i read the sh!tloads of crap written here...
There have always been wrong ref calls, i know it sux and france suffered from those bad calls too (goals disallowed, red card for henry...) but hey our team was full of sh!t and they deserved to get canned. So face the truth, this year's WC has the weakest level i ve ever witnessed, those "great" team we ve been supporting were exhausted and unimaginative and even if they were sometimes given bad calls from the ref they simply sucked.
Who can tell me face to face that italy played brilliantly throughout this tournament ? They were already lucky to pass the first round... They were awfull and deserved their trip to home just because they came in asia with only in mind this catenaccio crap. Example : they had the game in their hand at 1-0 against Korea and though they decided to control and not to push their advantage but i am sorry it was not the ref that scored the ****!ng korean goal fellows...
But italy is not my point. Spain, GREAT spain wasn't good enough to score a single clear goal against korea and as gOD said the ref wistled before the ball get in twice so cut now the conspiracy theory stuff.
As a conclusion we will have as a world champ whether one of the ugliest team in the history of german football whether one of the most unimaginative brazil team of all time, only being held by a trio of football genius... And THAT doesn't make me happy...
Conclusion : ref suck but this is no news and we weren't so harsh on them when their bad calls were on our side (and it happened a lot for every single country). Furthermore using refs from the whole world is stupid given the fact that many of them are used to competeition that have not even the level of the french 3rd division. When FIFA will force the ref to use video things will change for all of us...
Great countries weren't really prepared to the world cup and weren't given enough time to get ready, i mean come on the champions league final was 2 weeks before the WC 1st game ! On the other hand the koreans stopped their national championship 6 months ago to get ready so ok they aren't really good and they won't be coming next year to real madrid but hey they CAN play together ! Our so called great counrties were unable to do that and relied on their fame and their tired key players already sucked up by their club (viera played 60 or 70 ****!ng games this year and some brilliant analyst said "he looked a bit tired" what a joke)...
Anyway try to get objective and stop those racist insults against our friends from asia please.

i never imagined anybody could stoop so low as to suggest the referees have been bribed.
magic#10 , Ianz and mr_sinister : Simply shocking. I think you guys should grow up and stop being such sore losers.
Just like i thought. Cant take defeat.So used to winning are you?
This clearly shows how little you know about football. Like JULIEN said, England, France, Spain and most of all Italy have played like crap.
They have been unimaginative and boring and have failed to capitalise on whatever little chance they had. Even Germany has been similar except that they managed to grind out results. Just becos your teams didnt have the b**** to show some spirit doesnt mean you have to point fingers at others.
well I agree with gautam in that Spain and especially Italy must look at themseleves like all the other big teams which have
played ****ty and terrible thruout.spain today played better than Korea but after Mendieta and Enrique came into the game they were bad and struggled except for the Morientes shot onto the post.The 2nd disallowed goal would have been saved by the keeper and for the 1st goal there was definite shirt tugging and in fairness to the ref he blew up well before the headers took place.Yes the ref standard has been quite bad thruout the world cup but its been the same for all.Every team needs luck and Korea have it on their side,that dosn'' mean they are corrupt and bribing the refs.I pity all u people who try to convince urself that ur team was way superior to the Asian and african teams and only lost due to the ref.argentina could point to that dubious penalty for england but I accept that they were below par in the Cup and didn't deserve to win just because they have a superior team on paper.Secondly if I remember correctly spain in the first round got atleast one dubious penalty call ,where were all u loser people then.Just because Italy have raked up this scandal thing now all u fans of spain jump onto the whining bandwagon.I hate to say it, but there is a tinge of rascism in the way u speak about the Koreans,I can recall Amoroso calling them Doping midgets.
this is said for Spain in had luck against the Irish and what goes around comes around and today they had some ill-luck.Is that so Hard to take.
magic#10,Ianz really need to learn to lose more gracefully,I suppose this is the first time the team u support has bad calls going against them Get a grip, every year we hear conspiracy theories in the Italian league who have the best refs in the world supposedly
