    I'm at work and not watching the match . . . . in what ways are they cheating (is it blatantly obvious, sneaky, or just made up, nonsensical attention seeking) :emoticon-0112-wonde

    That was a brutal hit that, no idea why the game wasn't stopped immediately.

    Commentator “using every trick in the book” sees it back and extends his sentence with “but we know that’s a hard hit”

    **** off man. Watch the ****ing game. I saw it at full speed on an iPad ffs.

    Cameras normally go searching for a good looking woman in their footy shirt from the leading team.

    There aren’t any there!!!!

    Absolutely unbelievable that. Hard to have any sympathy for Argentina mind.

    The reality is that it's an even worse result for Poland and Mexico.

    Okay, you've hooked me. Called it before the game? Was "Hope the cheating Argies get battered here." your version of a prediction?
    Can't believe I'm typing this whilst cursing myself for rising to you. :headbang:

    Nah, you didn't. You said you hoped SA would win and Argentina were your favourites for the tournament. Hoping something will happen and predicting it will happen aren't the same thing.

    What a right Messi the Argies have gotten themselves into.

    I have a suspicion Argentina may not bounce back from this. Pressure will be enormous to do so. Messi, I am afraid, is not the player he was and cant carry a team. I think the media support for him, and the argument he deserves to go out on a high, is a bit tedious and probably puts pressure on the other players. Players like him and Ronaldo are still capable of magic moments, but are they capable of magic tournaments. This Argentina team looks short to me in key areas.

    They're definitely short in key areas by elite standards, but they have more than enough to beat Mexico and Poland in my opinion. I think they might actually find it a lot easier because those teams will attack them rather than sit back.
