Stop trying to marginalise Group H!
...the Russian national anthem again
alright, Sergey Aksyonov
gonna have a nap during the 8pm game then get up to watch C-Ron have a little cry.
Anything less than a win and we're in trouble. I think we'll win 2-1, it'll be straight forward too.
es don't sting me
A little documentary on Socrates and Corinthians and the fight for democracy in 1980s Brasil: http://m.aljazeera.com/story/2013312145718474996
Russia will set up similarly to how Algeria did won't they? would be delighted with another tight win in that case. hopefully a more coherent performance tho.
Belgium WILL become better entertainment value if they make it out of this dickhead group and come up against teams that actually attack them
+ watching the Russia-Belgium game later, haven't decided whether to watch it in the flat or head out into the city, probably the latter
+ Ghana-Germany, great game
+ missing all of the English media reaction to the Uruguay match
- going to miss the USA-Portugal game as it's on so late (2am)
May have to introduce a minimum quota in their domestic league to prevent this happening again.
Hateful Suarez advert. Has this been done?
terry tate: office linebacker https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RzToNo7A-94&feature=kp
Assume he's out in Brazil supporting the boys or something?
Reckon he's on that reeling in some new catches.
how have I never seen the world cup armadillo before??
...despite his name.
world cup shouting last night.
been a lack of that so far
against Italy (remember that?!) I'd just shouted "Don't shoot!"
But I started drinking and went out so I missed Nigeria showing Bosnia who's boss which I'm a bit gutted about. Still, nursing my hangover and not gotten up until 3 to ensure I can enjoy the MASSIVE game later on! I'm rooting for Portugal because I want Ghana to qualify.
the lads are doing well so far.
Lloris is gonna play his way to a barca move isn't he :(
Just a drunk bloke isn't it?
On how to pronounce De Bruyne
says he's taking some time to think about his future.
Surely, following his performances in the last two games, what he wants to do is as moot as a moot thing can be? If Hodgson is serious about moving the squad forward, Gerrard needs to be amongst the first on the chopping block.
And if we need 2 or 3 midfielders for the England team then I'm not sure who I'd select instead of Gerrard. He has had a relatively poor tournament, but I don't think it's game over for him as an England player. With so many youngsters coming through then you could see him still having a big role to play in the squad, even if he isn't starting.
"guys, you'll have the worst summer ever if you lose, i should know! now go out and enjoy it".
And he's hardly got the football brain to help a talented but tactically naive youngster develop at international level, so not sure what help he'd be.
would rather lampard hung around tbh tbf
Cracking name, cracking hair
Gerrim signed, British teams.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NuERX-5kc0 s toe touch their own knee on the same leg
that DiS decided to cut
Yeah maybe a signing for Mark Hughes then.
letting the world cup down
Pity. Quite like Belgium.
but they've done nothing to earn any feelings of goodwill. pretty shit kit aswell :(
At least some of us are out there having fun. Even if they're watching Belgium.
Reckon there's some goodwill from the qualifying games. The Belgium fans were a great bunch of lads.
International partners in area equivalent comparison thingumying.
he's just turned 19, has 4 goals in 55 career games.
would anyone like to hazard a guess as to what he thinks the sign of a good team is?
playing about 20 mins of football. Everyone else is in trouble once they start bothering for 90.
See you for the second half of Algeria v SK.
but the games have turned out to be reasonably decent. Group H on the other hand so far has even been worse than it looked on paper. Can we lobby to have whoever goes through disqualified so the two Group G qualifiers maker the QFs instead. At the moment I'd even prefer Pepe and Ronaldo there over any of these Group H sides.
The Fennecs are about to absolutely drub the Blue Samurai.
I'd be sticking about for this one. FIREWORKS expected.
Sorry guys, sorry South Korea and sorry Japan. Jeez.
First controversial moment of the game and we haven't kicked off yet :(
Dammit. Gone and ruined everything.
Always had you tagged as a massive racist
Going to have to have a serious think :(
Korea's starting line-up: S R Jung, S Y Yun, Y G Kim, H M Son, C Y Park, Y Lee, J C Koo (c), K Y Han, S Y Ki, C Y Lee, J H Hong
Algeria's starting line-up: Mbolhi, Bouguerra (c), Halliche, Mesbah, Feghouli, Brahimi, Medjani, Slimani, Bentaleb, Djabou, Mandi
Belgium look good, eh
t.A.T.u., Daniel Kelly - your boys took one hell of a beating (in the last 5 minutes)!
not surprised that it was turgid but the aimless hoofing was new and worrying. maybe the effect of starting Fellaini?
everyone keeps going on about Benteke but he was never that good.
i like Origi though.
Witsel played well again.
going through after 2 matches is good
Ghana/Portugal/USA? The latter I guess.
Germany would be a pretty fun match though.
Portugal looked crap the other day but surely they'll raise their game + Ronaldo would destroy that slow defence on the counter.
Good to see big bougherra, I have fond memories of marauding runs when he was at rangers
A lot more energy going forward. Could mean we tire as the game goes on.
Old Blue Last, etc, etc...
Algeria: Princes of our hearts <3
Considering becoming Algerian now.
Fairly sure before I inadvertently became a racist, I did predict a pummelling. Damn, could've king tipped that.
I'm enjoying this game
It looked like every African team bar Ivory Coast was going to exit rather tamely, might yet have three in the second round now. I can see it now: Germany v Algeria, Revenge for 1982.
Can definitely see Algeria beating Russia next week based on the performances so far.
We rule :)
South Korean defending has been utter pish
this world cup is fucking great :D
"South Korea's Peter Crouch."
beautiful first touch
I'm fucking loving this World Cup! :):):):)
Really heating up this game
I like both team
Game over surely?!?!
and I stand by that decision
so shut up
(I'm not watching)
And a good 20mins left as well, could there be another twist
Yeah it's good.
What a game! Probably the only thing I've ever watched on TV better than Turner & Hooch.
what's your game of the tournament so far?
I'll go for Netherlands - Australia
Iran v Nigeria
That match tonight was great too
If I had to pinpoint one it'd still be the Spain/Netherlands game, the Spanish lead, the Netherlands playing out of their skin, just sheer shock.
worst 8pm kick off on paper is a(nother) humdinger
shunned Algeria-South Korea and miss a belter. It's like I repel enjoyable matches.
americans love their stats, eh?
(and of course it is) then that Veloso/Moutinho midfield partnership should tear shit up.
goals incoming here
He was about as effective as a Littlewoods dummy in the first match.
Americans look rattled.
very funny http://mixlr.com/peterserafinowicz/
brazil 2 cameroon 0 - cameroon have been poor, brazil will have too much for them.

let's see how many i get right!
3 points for a correct score, 1 point for correct result.
will be disappointed with less than 40/48 tbh
(Moutinho and Ronaldo exempted)
Would still beat England pretty heavily, if not on paper then certainly because of the English 'shit yourself in important Internationals' factor or maybe the semi commitment to questionable tactics issue, idk
without those two they're fucking terrible. like, much, much worse than england. muuuuch worse. and they're going to do so much injury-feigning in the second half
If they played the turgid lacklustre way they did against Uruguay, I'd take the Faroe Islands over England
COME ON YOU STARS AND STRIPES
what's this break all about? there's only 5 mins left of the half?
taking the piss out of the poor bloke's tourettes
but how can he still sound this miserable? At this world cup, with two exciting teams during a really entertaining game with stuff riding on it? Is he being haunted by some terrible tragedy which won't allow him to feel joy? Or does he just hate life that much?
Anytime I see that he is co commentating it puts me off the game a little
Hurry the fuck up football
but enjoying this. Portugal far to open to challenge the better teams.
Also, how desperately does Ronaldo want to score? It's like it's still 0-0 to him...
YOU ESS EH
Still can't get over how much he looks like Common with that beard.
Awake now cheers
:D He has his moments
He is unbelievably miserable. Not saying it's not strangely enjoyable but he seems like a man on the verge of a breakdown.
MsWza has had him pegged as a man who has gone through a breakdown/divorce and hasn't really come out the other side for a couple or three years. "Thatchhead" we call him, on account of his ridiculous barnet.
For him anyway
Lawro "that's why you never ever give up at sport" :')
YOU ESS EH YOU ESS EH
i have no words for them
really shouldn't be watching this game, just got home from holiday at 11pm, 8 hours jet lagged and I need to be at work tomorrow. Totally made the right call though.
so so so much
America giving Germany a resounding thump :/
knocking us out on penalties repeatedly when we (on paper at least) had an actual chance in tournaments)
"had an actual chance in tournaments"
Thought people would have got over their Ronaldo inadequacies by now.
Team of total muggy boneheads + Ronaldo
But at least America have played directly and been entertaining.
Despite being from a country that hates football. But loves fucking the world right up.
Someone should say
think of this as something amazing to remember me by.
I'll miss you, 11pm kick-offs :( What a great way to end things between us.
and knowing it will slowly dwindle from there. This is like getting married :(
95th fucking minute!
I'm telling ya
smarmy cock-end and his rabble of twats will still get knocked out
it's not possible.
So why are you still reacting to it?
hope ghana beat them 15-0
ooft, look at the folk in chicago
and one of their players does a poo on Ronaldo's head as he cries
and everyone finishing on 4 points.
Lots of it
Ghana have a gazillion more football karma points than Portugal and if they'd don't cash them all in and score so many goals the scoreboards overload I'll be very upset
that was a punch in the stomach.
could just about abide ghana going through, but if portugal can do it with a 5 goal swing i'll actually throw up
some good levels of ronaldo hatred in this thread. imagine being that one bellend in the world that doesn't see how he's a nobhead.
there's been about 10 absolute crackers so far
and they make me happier to be English than the actual England team
oh god Ghana please just do them. do them really hard.
Can't wait for day 12! :)
seeing as it causes a momentously exciting final round
as long as portugal are buried, mind. as long.
on the same day as portugal's hateful last-minute equaliser........came this
(watch the whole thing for best results)
