The World Cup 2014 Thread

Recommended Posts

Feel a bit sorry for the Aussies in this second half.

Ref is giving a foul any time a Chile player hits the deck.

Been a good game this, Australia just lack that little bit special to create something.

 

Frustrating game. I'm not convinced by any of our penalty shouts, but do feel Chile got so many very soft free kicks after we'd put in robust but fair tackles. Yet there were a couple of times late in the game when an Aussie was scythed at the edge of the box and nothing doing. :swearing:

 

Great save from the keeper from the Bresciano half-volley. I think if that goes in then Australia go on and win it. Ultimately, it's the terrible start that buried us. I was interested to see how the A-League players would cope at this level and the first 20 minutes they looked like rabbits in the headlights and it looked like it could get really embarrassing. Once they got to grips with things they were the better side though, especially second half.

 

Just a pity because that was always going to be best chance at notching even a point. It'll be three straight defeats now for certain :down:  Still, the future looks bright. Matthew Leckie looked an absolute gun  :love:

 

Looking forward to the England game tonight/tomorrow, but the time difference here in Poland is already fucking with me big time.

That dutch game was awesome. Amazing header.

I thought australia gave a good account of themselves after a shaky start. It was a really enjoyable game until about 60 mins.

Cameroon were terrible.

Great world cup so far

Predictions

Uruguay 5 : costa Rica 1

England 2 : Italy 2

Japan 2 : cote divoire 1

Too many goals to do scorers but I think sturridge will score.

Thanks

Columbia are good to watch, but Greece absolutely suck the life out of any football match they are a part of.

 

Glad your enjoying it - thanks for your support.  I'd like to draw your attention to the following, however:

Glad Greece got humped. I like the look of colombia. A little reckless but very talented. Great midfield.

Side question: anyone happen to know the names of the chilean coaching staff? (Besides sampaoli). I want to find a picture of the one guy on their bench who looks like a 70s porno version of david bentley.

Buffon out for Italy is a major blow for them, still think it will a dour 0-0 or 1-1 though.

 

Job done by Columbia, now to endure ITV's coverage of Uruguay v Costa Rica but will they actually spend any time talking about that match?  Minimum at best, they'll be banging out about England and hating the fact the BBC have coverage of this one!

The 3rd goal was supreme. Campbell's pass and Urena's finish were slick.

 

Uruguay looked terrible at the back. If they're going to do anything in this tournament, Suarez is going to be doing it all on his own.

Yeah it was a sending off no question but think he was just venting some frustration at how bad his team had been.

 

I think England might win tonight but maybe thats cos I've had a couple of cans of cheap Aldi lager!

I made a weird noise when I thought Sterling scored there then I felt stupid for thinking it went in then I saw the bbc graphics people got mixed up/over excited and felt better about the whole thing. I'm pumped up. 5-0.
