Round of 16 - Netherlands vs Mexico (17:00 BST) & Costa Rica vs Greece (21:00 BST)

Recommended Posts

I decide to invent the so-called Derek's Standard ("Derek", because it should sound English :brock:):

"Any form of cheat is never acceptable unless it leads to a significant advantage of the most likeable side according to the person who views the form of cheat."

You wish :D No one is holier than anyone, but declaring that some people have to be saints to remain respectable (Robben) whereas others can get away with everything as long as they win (Drogba, Keane, Gatuso) is the ultimate in biased nonsense.

I don't know what Robben exactly said but he should be punished if he admitted to diving IMO

'went down easily on some challenges'. In other words, not admitting to diving in clear words. Not a chance, never did nothing wrong guv :D

It is not, but it is justice :cool: Oh, how the whiners would have loved to say Oranje didn't score so nerr... glibly ignoring a stonewall penalty not being given.

Oh that was definitely a stonewall penalty earlier on but the two things are not connected

Elbows go unpunished, 1 game bans for direct red cards. But being honest about something that happened in the first half which had no effect on the rest of the game needs a 3 game ban, logic :)
