scores don`t lie

they never tell the whole story, but they don`t lie.

aus v japan 0 – 0.  they couldn`t finish.  we couldn`t create.  fair score.

au v qr 1 – 0.  they took one of the few chances they made.  we didn`t.  fair score.

a lack of composure in front of goal is a damning criticism, not an excuse for failure. “we took more shots than them” really, really, isn`t a positive.

“the better team lost” is one of the most ridiculous things i have ever heard.  if you can`t put the ball in the net more than the other team, how can you say you were “better”?  “deserving” the win deserves just as much sympathy.

“dominating possession” is another great football meme.  i think it is short for “dominating possession, but doing nothing with it”.  you don`t really hear it about the team that wins.  usually the phrase “dominating the match” is used for them.
