Re: 2012-2013 Discussion Thread for La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, etc
Snowman, you are the troll gift that keeps on giving. Didn't contribute anything in the final, did he? You mean aside from crafting the greatest assist in the history of the tournament to set up the winning goal.
You utter, utter buffoon.
Is there any reason you resort to insults instead of arguing your points in a debate? Maybe it's because I'm attacking your sporting hero with facts and logic and your struggling to come up with facts and logic of your own?
Your right he did assist but if you actually watch the game you'll notice that the germans had gone all out attack leaving two players on one german defender. Good vision showed and I'm not discrediting Maradonna completly he is a great player but knowing the context of the assist and being objective, well Downing could have made that pass. It's not even comparable to Messi against Milan either because Milan could mark Messi out of the game knowing they had a second chance in the return leg.Meanwhile Germany had to go for the victory rather than settle for the lottery of a penalty shootout, leaving Maradonna open to punish them.
