In the third special Rant Cast of the summer regular presenters Ed & Paul look at the final round of group games and assess the matches in the last 16 as the knockout stages begin. This is where the narrative of the tournament truly unfolds, heroes are made and villains cast!

Talking of villains, there’s a discussion on all the fallout from ‘chomp-gate III – this time he’s really hungry’ … Luiz Suarez’ bite and ban from the World Cup.

This is the third of four planned editions during the World Cup – international football with Red tinted glasses!

Anyone else see the BBC article assessing worst crimes in football with a short verdict on each. For racial abuse it says players develop a thick skin.

Anderson? Hargreaves?
What do you mean the last Midfielders we signed was back in 2008?

What about six months ago when we signed Juan Mata?

Central midfielders. Mata may have the number 8 shirt but he’s not about to play in that role for United.

And wasn’t Anderson a CAM when we signed him? If i remember it correctly, it was his best position then Fergie decided to covert him into a CM.

Clearly the banning of Luis Suarez is the result of an Anglo-Italian conspiracy. It is just sour grapes after both countries were knocked out of the World Cup by Uruguay.

As Luis, the victim of this witch-hunt, explained in his defence, “I lost my balance, making my body unstable and falling on top of my opponent. “At that moment I hit my face against the player leaving a small bruise on my cheek and a strong pain in my teeth.”

Despite such adversity brave Luis soldiered on and finished the match. What a trooper!
