Well Done Spain But Oh Dear Howard Webb
It wasn't a great final, but it wasn't a bad one either. Of course, Howard Webb did his best to cock it all up. What did his wife say? "He can't control the kids at home so I don't know how he can control the Final". Well he couldn't!
Was the goal dodgy? I don't think so, the Dutch guy tried to run through a gap that didn't exist, he wasn't body checked as the men in orange were trying to claim. Anyway, Robben apart, the Dutch had played like thugs throughout and so got their just desserts.
Webb managed to find his red card eventually, though how Van Bommell stayed on the pitch for the first 45, never mind the whole game, must be a mystery to everybody other than Webb. He should have sent Vidic off in the League Cup Final too so he has form for this. FIFA appointed him knowing that, so they can't complain.
Good to see Fabregas play the killer pass for the goal. £50m for Torres? I reckon Liverpool should take £10m after seeing him pull up lame again. I'm not sure we will ever see the guy at his best again - there are shades of Michael Owen here! Poor Woy must have been shaking his head in disbelief!
