    My World Cup line up of my favourite players from the tourney:
    – That goalie that made that save in that match
    – yon left back who went missing at that corner he should have been on the post
    – the centre back who thinks he’s a forward
    – the other center back who does the work of two players because of the other fella
    – that right wing back who couldn’t cross a bridge never mind a ball!
    – the left winger who is not a winger but he’ll give you 7 out of ten every game
    – yer man in the centre of the field with the hair
    – that lad in the middle who must be the manager’s love child or something coz he’s useless
    – That fella on the right all he does is cut inside how does the left back not see that
    – Yer man up front, ould as the hills, way past it whats he doing at the World Cup? Wait! What a goal I always knew he was class!
    – Yon tool of a striker! Look at him! Could hit a cow’s arse with a banjo never mind a goal from six yards! How much is he paid?

    Those were my favourite players of the competition!

  25. Bobby

    Ah, I left out someone. Stick Tony O’Donoghue in at left back. He did the 2am Cote D’Ivoire Japan game which only the “true fans” stayed up for.

  26. DamoC

    GK:: Neuer: should have been player of the tournament, didn’t have to make many of the flashy saves the likes of Navas or Ochoa did because he’s 2 steps ahead of the game.

    Def: Lahm, Hummels, Garay, Ghoulam: Lahm and Ghoulam the best attacking fullbacks in the tournament (there were no good left backs in this world cup, I nearly went for Kuyt on the left as a result, can’t be having that). Hummels – imagine David Luiz could play football AND had a brain and it was connected to the rest of his body; Garay – from the Ayala & Sensini school of defending. And I feel like if I didn’t pick him, he’d come around and leave me like Christoph Kramer.

    Midfield: A trio of Kroos, Mascherano, Schweinesteiger.hard to know how long this midfield would last before Mascherano and Schweinesteiger batter each other Rocky/Ivan Drago style , but as long as its enough to provide enough platform for Kroos to work his magic. Mascherano in the semi v Holland was immense, and Schweine drove that German midfield like, well, insert any number of efficient German driving stereotypes here. Kroos was brilliant, never flustered and really linked it all together for Germany.

    Upfront: Robben, Muller & Di Maria. 3 duracel bunnies full of tricks, skill, pace, and goals. Robben was great to watch, always seemed to be smiling, never gave up – never mind the goal against Spain, he dragged Holland to the win against Chile & Mexico, put up with some brutal stuff in the gave v Costa Rica and was 1 super saving Mascherano tackle from putting the Dutch into another final. Muller, the ‘Raumdeuter’. Tortured Portugal, nearly had his head taken off against Ghana, was still chasing down defenders at the end of extra time v Algeria, went looking for the French defenders – scored the scrappy goals needed. I’d adopt him. Only he might pick a fight with the goldfish. And the last man – Angel Di Maria. Gets overshadowed so much by Messi but once he went out injured, they weren’t the same. Di Maria was like Muller for energy, scored the vital goal against the Swiss and brought the best out of Messi.
    Best of all, none of them bit anyone.

    Footnote: I’m still looking for Eamon Dunphys man Lorenzo…

    1. Violet

      I’ll give you my shirt for this. I would have gone for James instead of Di Maria, but you make a good case for him.

    my late entry I know I know I’d be late for my own funeral etc..

    Tim Howard (I know Neuer is this and that but Howard had to work harder)
    Lahm (faultless)
    Vlaar (he’s really Richard Dunne in disguise you know)
    Beasley (with Tim Howard kept the US show rolling, hero), faultless)
    Mascherano (110% commitment old school)
    Schweinstieger (old fashioned hard man, loveit)
    Pirlo (he single-handedly ruined Engerland and is the player I’d most want to go for a pint with)
    Tim Cahill (unsung hero, but scored
    Robben (but he has to stop the acting or I’m gonna end up hating him)
    Rodriguez (oh man, that chest and volley one of the best ever)
    Messi (he’s a nice bloke too, fck the haters mate you’re top)
    Muller (gets the job done)

    Manager: has to be LVG. not just cos he pulled that great penno trick in the quarters but he made sure EVERY player that travelled in the squad got some game time, did u know that?

    I like the maroon and black one
    would go well with my Bohs one ;)

    thanks!

  47. New Wave 909

    Kompany and Varane are the two most talented central defenders and both are quick. Lahm and Zabaleta with them at the back. The central midfield has to have Mascherano in it, he’s a tackling machine and a hard working midfield player. I’ll put Tim Cahill beside him because I have a soft spot for him, he was such a great player for Australia and he scored some great goals for them. Rodriguez and Robben can be on the wings with Messi and Muller up front. Neuer has to be the first choice goalkeeper with the Belgium goalkeeper Courtois as the second choice. There was a lot of good goalkeepers but I’m going for a future great goalkeeper as the second choice.
