Forum Software Migration (2nd Update)

As you may have noticed, the forum software has undergone a bit of a facelift. We've migrated from vBulletin4 to vBulletin5.2.2. As with all software major updates, there will undoubtedly be a few hiccups. As with all software upgrades, vBulletin has made changes in how their software works, so there may be a bit of a learning curve as you re-orient yourself to their changed environment.

We have worked through the initial hiccups that were reported. If you experience additional issues, please pm them to wm and we'll work through them. Thanks for your patience!

Regards,
paman and wm

      Sorry, the deliberate handball that cost Ghana the match.

      Not your thoughts.

        I guess it's what they call a professional foul. Sacrafice a player and who knows what will happen with the penalty.

            I agree. A sending off and a penalty is a pretty tough sanction but when it's in the dying seconds of the game the sending off is pretty irrelavent.

            On the BBC the Uruguayan manager, Tabarez, said: "Saying we cheated Ghana is too harsh a word to use. Yes he stuck his hand out but it's not cheating. It was instinctive."
