The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I don't think they have the team chemistry to go all the way...lotta great players but if they don't work together they will have problems passing any of the other world class teams.

    If Argentina wins the cup, I get 1250$, if they are placed 2nd, I get 625$, so god bless them.

    It was a 20$ bet @ willhill : two months ago I had predicted that Lyon will win Le Championnat (2,50), Juventus the Campionato (5,00) and Argentina the World cup. (5,00, and 2,50 for the second place.)

    Tru, Ronaldo is playing through pain. I don't think we're gonna see him at his best.

    Romario wasn't even chosen was he?

    Romario wasn't chosen nor was Mario Jardel, despite his outstanding 42 goals record in the league of Portugal with the championship winners' team of Sporting Lisboa.

    One man won't make the difference up. They still can't perform collectively like brazil teams of the past.

    Wiz, Mario Yardel wouldn't put in half as many as that in the english, italian or spanish leagues i bet.

    Bad news.. more bad news for England.They have many injuries..

    Steven Gerrard needs a groin operation and will definitely miss the World Cup, Liverpool said on Tuesday.
    Gerrard, is one of the key players in England's midfield.He was injured in Liverpool's final game of the season on Saturday against Ipswich.

    Becks is recovering from a broken bone in his left foot but is confident he will be ready for England's opening game against Sweden on June 2.

    Manchester Utd midfielder Nicky Butt is recuperating from a knee problem.

    Defender Gary Neville has been ruled out of the World Cup with a broken foot.

    Newcastle ace Kieron Dyer is almost certain to miss the World Cup.

    Riquelme and Saviola have definitely been left out of the squad. Argentine media claimed they would be replaced by Juan Pablo Sorin of Brazil's Cruzeiro and Diego Placente, who plays for Champions Cup finalists Bayer Leverkusen.

    What a goal was that of Zidane in the final of the Champions League! Outstanding.. He is the best..
    And Real Madrid is the best team of the world.

    Not to mention that I won 520 euro (from a 20euro bet)
    It was:Real Madrid to win with 2-1 and Raul to score first.(odds:26.00)

    notsobig guy: brazil don't have many chances to make it through the final in this world cup.

    Dude that is so not true.

    Barcelone kicked their asses at the bernabeu, they should have won like...10-2.

    Real Madrid are good, but they're not deserving of the European cup (although Zidane's goal was.)

    Are you joking?
    Zidane-Raul-Figo-Carlos are some of the world's most valued players.And Real is a team.
    Barcelona is not a team. They lost 0-2 to Real in Nuevo Campo and Real was playing without Figo.
    We (Panathinaikos) lost the qualification to the semi finals from Barcelona because they were very very lucky. The last 10 minutes in Nuevo Campo were a nightmare for them.Konstantinou and Vlaovic could have scored but they missed some unbelievable chances, not to mention that Bonano cessed a penalty to Olisadebe but the referee was in an other stadium.

    Don't forget that in the game at Bernabeu between Real and Barca, Real took the lead early with Raul and they had already secured the qualification because the real score was 3-0 for Real, so they didn't need to sweat a lot during the rest of the game.

    Real weren't the best team in the world today. They never are. hey threw away a possible triple. They were lucky to win today. They had pacthes of excellence bt Beyer were prolly the better team overall.

    Real were extremely lucky to win at the bernabeu. They were the better side at the nou camp, but not at the bernabeu. Barca really should have won by a superb margin.

    Panakinithos were lucky to reach the quarter final stages.

    Nah you're drunk..
    Panathinaikos managed to beat Arsenal,Slavia Prague (twice) Barcelona, Mallorca, Schalke(twice), Sparta Praha (twice) was unbeatten in Athens and finally made Barcelona wishing for the game in Nuevo Campo to come to an end... We had to be in the semi finals.

    Barcelona is a piece of crap. They are not a team.. Again. Real is a team and is better than every other team in the world. Close to them, I place Manchester united. They have many quality players like Becks,Veron,Ruud Van Nistelrooy (what a striker),Giggs and Keane. I also like Arsenal. Henry,Bergkamp and Ljumberg.

    Bayer04 Leverkusen was not able to face such a team. They also missed Ze Roberto but Real had to win their 9th European Champions Cup.

    Juventus were the team to beat. Although they did crap in Europe. Next season will be different.

    Man Utd are ok. Arsenal were also a great team who under-achieved in Europe.

    I totally agree with you. Juventus will make something special in the 2003 champions league. It's their turn.

    Ironic how they sold lots of talent over last summer and then they win it. Juve that is.
