    He hasn't really been dynamic off the wing for a couple of years now. He's still got the skills, but I think his continual knee problems are slowing him down.

    Please hold that tie or win Austria. I have three portuguese colleagues who I see tomorrow, who trashed me for Germany vs Poland.
    He, so how bout that Ronaldo guy?

    Can't say I understand the happiness for Ronaldo's misery tonight.

    That finger-wag is annoying.

    Quit it.

    For me, it's his comments after the Iceland game that are making this game satisfying.

    Austria will be okay with a draw, won't they? Need to beat Iceland but not awful to draw against Portugal.

    I thought ball-to-hand didn't get called.

    Like when Mourinho said West Ham play 19th century football. He's not the first or last to make similar comments.

    He's not the most likeable player (unless you're a fan), and his salty comments after the Iceland draw didn't help.

    Apparently, after the match when Aron Gunnarsson asked him for his kit, he responded by saying: "Who are you?"

    Maybe, in satirical manner...in terms of actual football. It has been utter trash. 2 teams playing far below their "supposed" skill level.

    He's not the first or last ***** bag but why should anyone not a Madrid/Portugal fan cheer for him?

    He is definitely a dick, but I do feel a bit badly for him getting stuck with such a horrible international side.

    The hell was Portugal doing there, running onto the field carrying the ball and then throwing it back out? :laugh:

    I get not liking him. Just not the kind of player whose struggles I would revel in, like say Pepe or someone like that.

    But we can cheer against it. It's not like I'm sabotaging him. Gotta have a villain somewhere. He's good enough to be one. Plus, Portugal is a team we can still make fun of, because they are really good yet never won anything (all in good humour).

    I don't see Gareth Bale, or Robby Keane ever complain, to cite a few current examples

    That's like saying why should anyone not an Austria fan laugh at his struggle today? You can watch a player without reveling in their struggles or successes.

    Austria holds Portugal to a scoreless draw.

    A draw against Portugal and Hungary is through to the next round.

    A win against Austria and Iceland is through to the next round.

    What a crazy group. :laugh:
