Now we can see why Saudi Arabia were such a big price. At the back they are woeful.

They remind me of us from a few seasons back, trying to play out from the back without the personnel with the footballing ability to actually do so!

I am tempted to have a tickle for a draw at 25/1 as Russia look equally shit and won't be able to keep up the pressing for the whole game, plus the Saudi's cannot be that shit in the second half.

That's exactly what I was thinking, town under Williams. Fucking useless at the back and so bloody slow and ponderous moving the ball forward.

Both of these, I said exactly the same thing to Adje.

I wish Swindon had a target man like Dzyuba.

Early on I thought the Saudis could at least draw, right up to the 2nd goal!

Why the hell they did not play the ball on the ground to a pacey striker at every opportunity when he was up against a 6 foot 2 very near 39 year old with the pace of a slow puncture and turning circle of the QE2 is beyond me.

Russia very deserved winner and this could well give them the momentum now to have a good tournament.

Saudi Arabia at 9/1 are worth a little punt.

I expect Uruguay to win today with goals in the match. Uruguay and over 2.5 goals maybe worth a nibble.
