Hi guys, since the WC will begin in just a few weeks I started this thread to talk about anything concerning this WC. So what are your expectations? Personaly I think that Holland won't have a good WC. I also think that Brazil won't meet the expectations and perhaps Germany will be World Champion

Modern football in NTs isn't different than 1986's football... In teams yes, but NTs no.

Even, I think before, the defenders were much more hard and best (something that could make Maradone still being the best of Argentina)
Messi didn't play like in 2009, when he played like Maradona, destroying all defenses when he touched the ball, right now he doesn't run, defenders don't touch him because he is protected by the referees... Thats why I don't like Messi (in 2009 he was one of my favourtite modern players, even when my teams are AC Milan and Real Madrid), that year is the only one Ballon D'or what should be win by Messi, the others were stolen to another players (2010 should be won by Sneijder or Xavi, 2011 by Drogba, Robben or Ribery, 2012 anyone dudes here about Iniesta? and 2013 which isn't win by Messi, but Robben should won it, and he wasn't in the 3 finalist... And if football is fair, this year it should be between Sergio Ramos, Müller and Ronaldo or Robben)

Of course, he won Golden ball of the WC... Why? Müller, James Rodrígues, Kroos, Mascherano... They should be the main candidates to won it, more than anyone Müller or James Rodriguez. But no... People still overrate Messi and that making young people think Messi is better than Maradona, Di Stéfano, Pelé, Garrincha and too many legends, when in my opinion (and I'm not the only one) he isn't the left foot of Van Basten

One of the most important reasons why Messi won the golden ball according to FIFA itself: he was captain of a finalist..

I think the main reason is Adidas.

I don't think that Adidas is the main reason for Messi's golden ball. Müller and Robben (who won silver and bronze ball) are also equipped by Adidas so why should Adidas prefer Messi?

Because Messi is a better testimonial than Muller or Robben.
It's all about the money.

Curly, your magazine is quite accurate.
And that proved there are still many journalistic that doing things like declared Bierhoff to be better than del Piero, Enrique better than Ronaldo etc. I'm getting sick of every football website kissed CR7 and LM10's asses whenever possible and mocked anyone that declared against their greatness.
