Typical Millwall fans. Playing in the national stadium, Wembley. On a big occasion, the FA Cup semifinal.

Go down 2-0 and what do they do? They start attacking each other. Blood is spilled. A 10-minute brawl during the biggest match their team has played in forever.

Millwall fans are a continuing blot on English football.

América São Paulo trail Votuporanguense in the local Brazilian state championship on Sunday. América win a penalty and Pilo steps up

The usual term for this kind of pitch is "Acker" in german. (Agricultural field)

A bad penalty is one on a good pitch.

I think there's only way way to take a penalty. Run up and boot the hell out of the ball. Misdirect the keeper if you wish, but do everything fast and with momentum.

Do not prance around like a fairy and try to be clever.

This is bad penalty taking. Brazil-Paraguay. Copa America final, 2011. Penalty shootout. Brazil missed every single penalty. Every single one of them danced around like a fairy.

Even after watching it again, I am sure, that he hit everything but the ball because of the pitch.

I may be wrong today though. My company organized a "team event" which involved eating and drinking.

The second PK didnt dance around. He just went with pace and put it right into the keeper

What are you, a Millwall fan

David Luiz's goal against Fulham was a cracker

Phenomenal goal. Totally out of the blue. If the man would stop overcommitting himself to tackles, he'd be great.

Ok, Suarez has stepped over the line this time. He deserves a lengthy ban from the FA and a lengthy ban from the club afterwards. What he did was absolutely classless. Shame on him.

It's that overbite, it has a will of it's own

He has previous form, didn't he get a ban for biting while playing for Ajax?

Piece of shit stayed on the field and scored the tying goal. He's a dirty cheating little animal of a player.

7 game ban in Netherlands for the same thing. His nickname there is The Cannibal.

He's fucked though. The evidence is so clear the F.A., if not his club, will have no choice but to ban him for a long time (I'm guessing Liverpool will sell him on to another league). He was nominated for player of the year too.

Liverpool are in a tough spot. Players like Suarez, the leading scorer in the Prem, are impossible to replace. But the little freak keeps embarrassing his club. It's in his blood, it's who he is.

He's a dirty lying little cheating scumbag. His racial abuse of Patrice Evra was orders of magnitude worse than whatever John Terry did, and Liverpool (and that idiot Kenny Dalglish) stood by him all the way. He scored a winning goal in the FA Cup with his hand. He dives so much his own manager had to apologize and suspend him. He kicks, gouges and... he bites.

A terribly flawed, marvelous talent. I hope he never plays another match in England. But I doubt that will happen, just because he's so good. They'll suspend him, maybe for the rest of the season. Then everyone will pretend he's reformed. Until he embarrasses his club again.

Hes a hot head. Nothing compared to JT though. Cheats on his wife with one of his teammates ex, makes fun of Americans after 9/11, "racially abuses" Anton Ferdinand. The thing about racially abusing someone in England is it is WAY overblown. If you would say what either of them said in America, I doubt anyone would care. Im not a racist btw, but you can see how saying a few words over there wreaks havoc. The worst tempered player in the league is Rooney IMO. That dude kicks, stamps, dives, everything. Plus he cheated on his wife with some grandma prostitute! Nonetheless he is a role model in England because hes English and plays for United.
