De poster wasn't specific in the title so you could just about put any disappointment that you know of or experience, anything that comes to mind for eg; sports, politics, personal situations and the list could go on and on....

Is that so?   ???

So why after the title Biggest Disappointment? did he specify this in his post?

So which player in your opinion has been the biggest disappointment?

I know who mine is, and was it expect or unexpected?

oh shi* ! by bad, correct is right, but, what i was simply referring to is that the headliner is misleading

I think in order to be disappointed you have to have expectations-

So I expected Rooney to play better whether Englan shitty or not!His failure to elevate his play was disappointing.
I am disappointed by the poor officiating!

everybody saying rooney but in truth and fact in terms of player disappointment it has to be messi "the best player in the world." in my opinion he over rated he needs xavi and iniesta so is better he did say he was spanish.

I think the difference with Messi's play and Rooney's is that at least Messi created goals and chances for his teamates whereas Rooney did not score or even create. He was a non factor! I think Messi's issues had more to do with the system, team and Mardona's lack of ability as a manager of the game!

well, boy....that is some crazy  opinion! Messi is all what people have him down to be and then some.  Not because his success with Argentina (in the World Cup) is limited that it makes him a failure.  We as fans, have a tendency to look at a person's individual successes on a team sport as a way of measuring their own successes or failures.  That should really only apply when said individual had a major hand in seeing their team's successes through.  Messi has won an U-20 WC and an Olympic gold medal where on both occasions he was the focal point of their successes. Johan Cruyff is regarded as one of the greatest players to have ever played this game.  What did he "win" with holland?  What did Eusebio ever "win" with portugal? Baggio hardy ever "won" anything with Italy.  None of them ever "won" anything with their national teams....but when you looked at them play, you would be foolish to deny their greatness, even if they by themselves could not get it done all by themselves.   People that are quick to hate on Messi, for whatever reason, really need to pay attention to what this boy can do with a ball.  He has his weaknesses, I'm sure.  Everyone does. But there's no denying his talent......or people need to stop watchin' football. (sorry Palos). SMDH.

Messi is a very good player but I don't think the system prevented him from scoring. He just didn't score.

30 Shots, 15 On Target.

Sounds like the system wasn't the problem (attacking wise that is)

He still a good player but Argentina expect more of him and he just aint deliver. He had a decent tournament though.
But not on the level of Pele, Rivaldo, Ronaldo (the real one), Diego M, Platini, etc etc.
He aint there for his country like the greats have been when needed.

Co-sign. But I've been saying it all season. Ppl getting tie up by his club performances, which are indeed spectacular, but are a product of playing with outstanding teammates in a terrific system.

He is excellent at what he does, but best in the world? eh....
Nothing pisses me off more than racism, and ppl who you know that act like they don't know you.

People need to relax on this "Messi did not deliver" crap.  The strengths of an attacking midfielder extend well beyond being able to score, prior to the Germany game he created many chances for others and the team won, that's all that mattered, they progressed and reached the qtrs.  Then came Germany who successfully stifled the Argentine midfield which glamorous but clueless Maradona did not realize he needed to "liberate" for Messi to be effective.  At Barca, he is able to do this b/c of Xavi and Iniesta primarily creating loads of space allowing him to take on defenders at will and create and score chances.  This was absent from the Germany game not b/c he is incapable but b/c he is one man who was stifled by his coach's novice.  Messi is 23, he'll be back for 2014 and potentially 2018 for sure.

For me it was Kaka. I thought he woulda been ripping up the nets but he failed to score one goal.
Messi of course.
Dos Santos also disappointed me. He has potential to be excellent.
I didn't expect Christiano to do shyte so he eh really disappoint me.

The winning team's goal total.
5 teams scored more than Spain this WC.
8 is the lowest goal total for a WC winner ever.

Messi played better than Maradona did in 1982 at roughly the same age, with an Argentina that were defending champions. Messi was very much involved, far more creative and quite frankly very unlucky not to score.
What he did do better than Torres, Rooney, Lampard, Ronaldo, etc was able take himself out of being the main focus of the team (or wanting to be the main focus) and allow his team mates to operate off him. In short Messi makes players around him better, something the others failed by miles.
