consider that maybe.... just maybe, spain's inability to play enough through balls is a testament to the strength and organization of the Paraguayan, German and Dutch defences?!

allyuh need to understand that in football today, tactics is king over substance. It have no split open defence, beats and thru ball thing again, a team obeying a correct system with team defence will stifle anybody. New Zealand couldn't get bore and even Trinidad in 2006 showed this to be true.

Every team that plays against Spain plays very defensively and for good reason. Spain is just like Barcelona, they know that they have to pick a lock for every game. You can't pick that lock with aimless long balls and hail mary shots. I think they could have been more clinical in front the goal. But you have to admire the confidence they have that they can create more opportunities to score than any opponent. This is where we saw a level of complacency from them. David Villa could easily have double his tally if he was more accurate.

I was thoroughly entertained by Spain's play. Jook it until it buss is the name of the game. That's what they did and thats why they're are champions of the whole world.

So Puyol goal and Iniesta goal were examples of the other side droppin a grenade in dem own bunkers rather than Spain breachin dey defence?  ??? ::)

So in your opinion....holland beat deyself.

Is nutting dat spain do dat cause Holland to resort to thuggery to try and win de game.

Dem alone had goalscoring opportunities....and if dey did play "better"....dey woulda win de game.  It was a dutch back pass dat cause Iniesta to plant de ball in de back a de dutch net.  Ent?

not in d sense dat u tryin to make out but yes

Is nutting dat spain do dat cause Holland to resort to thuggery to try and win de game.
it seemed to me dat d thuggery was ah common theme in d dutch play almost from d start....... but then I was in and out (sleepin) at times in the first half.

Dem alone had goalscoring opportunities....and if dey did play "better"....dey woulda win de game.  It was a dutch back pass dat cause Iniesta to plant de ball in de back a de dutch net.  Ent?
 ??? doh know where yuh tryin to go wit diss, but dat drop d grenade statement wasn't intended mean spain didn't do nothing atall, as much as what they did caused a bit of suicide that lead to openings they got. would make good reading in a military journal, <sarcasm>an explosive game of chess</sarcasm> but a fairly uneventful game of football.

but dais jus me, I watch dat game as a neutral

Spain's game is patient and calculated- some people enjoy it, some don't. 

Depending on the opposition and how the chemistries work on a given day it could be fun to watch, or it could lull you to sleep...

Their results cannot be disputed though.

Way, look wha things come to! Men crying down a team for actually trying to play good football

Men really getting chain up with this negative brand these days in the name of tactics, boy?
Guess I mistook all Trinis for football romantics.

Forgive meh eh, but counter-attacking 'tactics' is cheap, shit football

So wait, when ever a side win the ball in their own half, they should wait for the other team to run back in their box and then launch an attack? or else is branded cheap shit?

this exchange on the style of play is not dissimilar to NHL ice hockey and Olympic Style ice hockey - thuggery versus clean skating and passing.  Some like the former and some like the latter.

Personally I prefer Spain kind of play, superb ball handling skills and teamwork.

"good football" is not always entertaining.

"bad football" is not always boring.
