So a man has been caught taking drugs, what is there to extract or confess about? Sure theres the supplier but as a celeb with the shame attached why would he protect them. Not sure why people keep carrying on about that..

Logically if a museum or any establishment that feels someone who is impeeding on their business or causing problems would contact the local law enforcement to remove them, especially a museum you would imagine, if they/girl did something wrong?

Posted in: Is a penalty shootout the best way to determine the winner in the knockout stages of tournaments like the World Cup? See in context

How can players back up next game if they are made to play until next goal in a tournament? Injuries and fatigue etc will impact the quality of next game where the people have paid a lot of money to watch. Its a cruel system but its a big enough reason to try and score during regulation time to avoid pks..

What a waste of money! No LB or any defender is worth that much money, especially when you have not achieved anything

Posted in: Early World Cup exits a lesson for Asia, says AFC head See in context

@tamarama: while i agree that our Australian youngsters performed galantly and gained plenty of praise against the Dutch, we desperately need someone to replace Cahill. With almost certainty that was Cahill's and Bresciano's last WC, with their retirement immenent and despite the valuable experience our youngsters got from this WC we are still way off from where we want to be...

Posted in: Suarez a scapegoat, says Uruguay coach Tabarez See in context

No wonder Suarez doesnt think he has done anything wrong. People around him that should be helping him are as in denial as him, all they worry about is Urugay not his welfare. He obviously needs help and first step is to accept his mistakes before he can rehabilitate...

Posted in: England too insular for World Cup success See in context

Going overseas to gain experience should not be limited to English players only but English coaches also. The only english coach i can think of that has the immediate qualifications is Brendan Rodgers, he should be appointed as a long term strategy to work with the current young crop of players which is what he is known for. But being selfish i dont want him to leave Liverpool, ynwa!

Posted in: FIFA bans Suarez for 4 months for biting See in context

Liverpool came out worst in this case. They pay him £200k a week so thats over 3million for next 4months. Sure what he did was crazy but i dont think its more dangerous than Zidan's headbutt, but people still worship Zidan. Maybe Suarez will fit right in at Real Madrid, with Zidan and they have Pepe already who is a maniac and a repeat offender who should be in jail for assault (repeatedly kicking a player whilst on the ground).

Posted in: Asian soccer power Japan suffer reality check on global stage See in context

Football evolves quickly. Spanish tikitaka football enabled and aspired Asian players to adopt this style which suits small fast skillful players, its no coincidence that as teams are starting to figure out how to beat Spain and their tikitaka, sees the downfall of Spain and teams like Japan who benefited from this style. Teams like the Dutch, France, Germany, Brazil with their power, speed and directness will dominate going forward..

Posted in: Zaccheroni quits as coach after Japan's World Cup flop See in context

Why do people always think that the grass is greener with a new coach? It doesnt always improve the team automatically, players, staff and coaches have to start from scratch and an adjustment period can take time. Be careful what you wish for as you can also get a real dud of a coach next, just ask Kagawa and Manchester United...

Posted in: Sayonara See in context

The team under performed but talk about laying the boot in folks. After being knocked out of tournament and covering over 10km in 90min who cares about what angle or if Honda bowed.I am not a big fan of Honda but what is he suppose to say? As one of the leaders in the team of course he is going talk their chances up and hopefully spur on the younger players. The media was equally guilty of predicting Japan to get thru their group so the public had high expectations as well.As an Australian it was a shame that Japan was knocked out, was hoping for any of the Asian teams to do well to lift the profile of Asian football.

@Thehedonist - couldnt agree more! It would be impossible given the size of this industry and its obsession with girls in school uniforms here in Japan.

It was a proud day to be an Aussie. We may have lost but didnt hurt our reputation and the this young team gained valuable experience for next WC. Timmy's goal was just sublime, one that he will always be remembered for.

Posted in: Rooney in pundits' firing line after loss to Italy See in context

Rooney should maybe used as a impact player from the bench. Sterling could shift out left (plays there for Liverpool) and Lallana start sitting behind Sturridge instead if Rooney. There is too much pressure on Rooney which is obviously effecting his performance..

Posted in: Foreign interns pay the price for Japan's labor shortage See in context

I have come across and heard of Asians who often describe their mistreatment whilst working in Japan. Whilst i have only had good experiences myself I have though never heard or come across such negative cases from Westerners. I must say that i notice a lot of Chinese bashing where there is an opportunity and i guess they are easy targets. I can only imagine the bashing the Chinese would have received had it been the other way around, but this will probably only receive low coverage if any at all on local papers/tv. I take my hat off to Takahara who stood up for these women.

Ch3cho: your conclusion that that these women are motivated by greed in this matter is from this? Mmmhh... What about non Koreans? I haved lived in peaceful friendly Japan for so many years, so its surprising to continously read comments by the same suggesting these women are driven by greed and voluntarily agreed to become prostitutes is downright showing lack of respect. sadly it is the very same reason why this continous to drag on unfortunately..

Joebiggs: thats not convincing. If these women are doing this for financial gain why would they not accept if Korean gov't told them not to accept? Why would they care about korean govt if money is offered to them? Your logic does not add up..
