Unhappy Re: Turkey should have won tonight

It is such a shame! They were the better team and deserved to win. It is still brilliant to get to last 4. The turks should be proud

Re: Turkey should have won tonight

No, they didn't 'deserve to win'
They played very well and their performance was commendable, but seeing as there were no 'flukey' goals on either side, the Germans scored more than the Turkish and that was the result, I would not say that there was any upset in the result.

It happens, accept it and move on - but give credit where it is due.

Re: Turkey should have won tonight

Mushroom,

I've warned you about bringing me PA and drum 'n' bass up to your place before, u provocative devil!

As a (relatively) unbiased observer, I would have thought you'd've gone along with the views of the TV and radio pundits... Turkey played by far the better game and deserved to get through to the final!

Smile Re: Turkey should have won tonight

Sorry, No deserved in football, I have watched many a game where the best side have done all the right things for 85 minutes out of 90 and then been beaten, thats how it goes.

It is quite simply a game where those who score the most win - not a game of merit based on possession, ability, control or whatever.

Deserved is not a word I use, because that is subjective. In my opinion I deserve to get 6 numbers on the lottery on a week when nobody else does - guess what it hasn't happened so far so I keep going ! Same applies in football.

If we are all going to be honest, a very gutsy team of Turks with limited ability performed far better than most people expected and went further than anticipated, along the way they received acclaim for their 'never say die attitude' from many, myself included but I would not have bet my kid's inheritance on them winning this tournament and at the end of the day it is all about winning in this glorious game because nobody remembers the runners up ! And, just for good measure if we had an England team capable of even getting into the tournament we would not have given a sh** about the Turks if we are going to be honest.

Good entertainment but no divine rights.

relax dear it's a game of football !
