Why would they not be suspended!? A country that refuses to do things the right way. If Maigari needed to be removed, there are NFF statues and rules and regulation for his removal, two wrongs don;t make a right. Now more unnecessary drama.

Well like you, I could NOT believe it, I practically screamed out loud three times when I saw the first three goals go in! 

A lesson to all, emotion and adrenaline ONLY goes so far. My dear Luiz singing the national anthem like he wanted to tear his mouth does not won games! 

This team suffered MORE from the loss of Thiago Silva than Neymar. Every single goals was a defensive error. On three or four of the goals, if you go back and look at the still frames / pictures you will note that defenders are missing from the picture. Luiz and Marcelo appeared to be more interested in being attackers than defenders, leaving poor Dante playing his first match all alone. Maicon was also either trying to play as a winger or just ball watching when the ball came his way.  

Having said all that, here is the simple fact, THIS TEAM WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH. They rode emotion and adrenaline to get to this point and their FIRST game against a true strong soccer power, look how they collapsed. 

And really the margin of victory should be the only surprise but not the defeat. The history is there for us all to see...

They struggled against Croatia and won via the dubious penalty call, Could not score against Mexico and tied with Chile with BOTH Neymar and Thiago Silva in the team! The labored to beat a spirited and stubborn Columbia 2-1

So again, this team simply way not good enough. Did anyone see Fred contribute anything to the games he played? Gustavo in midfield? Old Maicon to replace Dani Alves...? That team has only THREE cut above the norm players: Neymar, Oscar and Thiago Silva. Neymar  is No where near Messi, and sadly unlike Messi that carries his team and has a super supporting cast in the likes of Higuain, Agrueo, Di Maria, Brazil had only Oscar and did not play Willian enough. 

Well sad to see them go, but I had predicted an Argentina -Germany Final. AND I had predicted that Brazil's adrenaline would end indeed in the Semi's. So Messi had better produce the goods tomorrow!  

As for Brazil, maybe they need to woo Diego Costa back home...

Great intro video! So I have a question, if my router is in the basement and I locate the HUB there to connect via Ethernet will it still be able to send signals to the bulbs on the 1st floor? Or can I use my wireless receiver on the 1st floor to connect the hub? I don't use Airports and I don't want to buy one either. Thanks!

I'm glad! I love the Hue system, and of all the smart bulbs, this seems to work with the most! Plus they already promised Siri and iOS widget integration, it really seems to be the best out there! I just finished up a review on the Hue Disney lamp!

I like simple solutions and simple ideas. I knew about the Lepai for years, but always wondered why I would need one, till I finally realized the sound from my DELL 5 year old factory speakers SUCK!!! And now I am waiting to get my Lepai and hook up to speakers I already have from an old stereo system!

So what do you think? Are the players justified in the call for their appearance fees?

However, I do think the WC showed his glaring limits on tactical knowledge.

1. He should have figured out a way to beat Iran despite their parking the bus. Like Argentina, we needed was ONE goal.

2. Against Argentina, we saw what our team is capable of doing if the tactics are spot on. That game could and SHOULD have been a draw. 

3. Finally against France, I consider it a HUGE tactical error to replace a great talent in Onazi with Rabiu, who basically brought NOTHING to the team and was just running around the pitch clueless. I would have brought on the tall, strong and lanky Uchebo with the height to challenge Pagbo and also hold the midfield and provide one more target in attack. 

4. Amoebi should have been put in the game with Emenike in the last 75 minutes to give Emenike and Osaze another target to hit in the 18. 

If he had done such things and we STILL lost, one would have said indeed the better team won. There was ONE bad ref decision with not giving Matudi (or whatever his name is called) a red card for the challenge on Onazi, but that was a game we should have at least taken to extra time. 

MUCH as it pains me to say this, I can't now see the local coach to take over this team. Maybe Amochachi should be given a short window to manage the team. Maybe we should give Okocha a shot? I think he deserves a shot and lets see what he can do. 

Otherwise we need a good foreign coach, NOT a USELESS unaccomplished colomentally hired  oyinbo coach, who never played or won anything, but a solid experienced coach in the likes of Rudd Gullit, The former Egyptian coach, or an attack minded coach.  A fellow like Roberto Martinez, who knows how to do so much with so very little and is an attack minded coach.
