    Beckham. He was totally crap through the whole match.
    actually he did play well in the game. i still think the setup didnt do the team much good.
    he just messed up a penalty again

    either blame nobody and call it bad luck or all of them equally...it's a team game after all. i don't blame beckham - you can be the best striker in the world and score 999 out of a 1000 but there's going to be a dud one every so often, with that pressure i'm not surprised, he was unlucky. we were robbed of that goal though, the ref was looking for something to pull the england boys up on.

    it wasn't just the penalty though, anyone could have missed that as you said.

    portugal's equaliser came because he didn't react quickly enough after he blocked the first cross coming in, allowing the portuguese player to cross again. john terry was ahead of porstiga as well, he should have dealt with the ball too.

    Beckham has been like an old man since the beginning of the tournament. He looked as if he was drugged up (or wasn't!). I don't want to put all the blame on becks but he is the captain and should've lead the team with a bit more conviction. Why didn't Sven take him off? It wasn't like he was contributing very much.

    :mad: And as for the ref... he was corrupt!!! Did you see that big fat wad of cash that the portugese coach gave him after the penalties?!:eek:

    honestly idont think both the referee and the coach are that stupid, if it was a bribe they would meet up later and then he would pay him. dont blame the other team, i like portugals coach.

    You can't blame Beckham for this. I know he missed the penalty but everyone can miss a penalty and especially when you've got pressure from everybody; from the fans and in particular from the English media!
    If you're gonna blame someone, don't blame Beckham.
    Why do you blame Beckham but not Vassell?
    At the end of the day, I'm not blaming anybody.




    Maybe the referee a bit though haha

    It may be the referee. It may be Beckham. It may be Vassell. It may be the fans. It may be James. It may be Ronaldo. It may be that Portugal are so goddamn good. It may be the home advantage. It may be the stupid UEFA people for selecting the ref. It may be Pierluigi Collina for not refereeing the match. It may be the wet pitch. It may be the entire squad for not scoring more goals in the match itself. It may be Rooney for hurting his ankle. It may even be Heskey for being such a useless donkey. It may be.......

    I think it was unfair that Beckham gets a lot of blame for this, just because he went last. At least he had the balls to go up last, knowing that a miss would put England out.

    No. You damaged your house and stuff because you got over-excited and couldn't control your anger.

    If you hadn't have lost your temper and thrown things across the room and smashed things up it would never have happened. Take some responsibilty.
