insane save from the philippines keeper to beat nz

I think I'm missing the good bits, all I've seen so far is turgid European sides grinding out boring wins - mich like a men's World Cup.

John Donne In Concert (Tom D.), Tuesday, 25 July 2023 09:49 (ten months ago) link

or in the case of norway vs switzerland just now, the turgid force meeting the turgid object

imago, Tuesday, 25 July 2023 09:53 (ten months ago) link

oh and var having fun, that ruled-out nz goal against the philippines was outrageous!

imago, Tuesday, 25 July 2023 10:47 (ten months ago) link

it's been p poor so far overall imo. brazil did score a v sweet team goal in their opener.

oscar bravo, Tuesday, 25 July 2023 19:38 (ten months ago) link

ah I see you mentioned brazil's goal in your opening post. I wish I could get more hyped for this tbh.

fun match. haven’t watched too many matches but i always find summer tournaments easy to get hyped on

having satisfied itself with a red card and a penalty, var decided it was bored and didn't want to deal with anything else

oh and that one great Colombia goal. although their winner was ofc a header lol

that is a genuine nonsense of an offside call

Well I can't say I'm very impressed by Sweden so far.

Continuous Two-Tone Warble (Tom D.), Sunday, 6 August 2023 09:38 (nine months ago) link

Sweden timid. USA ponderous. I seem to pick the wrong games to watch.

Continuous Two-Tone Warble (Tom D.), Sunday, 6 August 2023 10:17 (nine months ago) link

wise move to only turn it on for the penalty shootout

Oh USApaws, Sweden were garbage. Some penalty shootout though!

Continuous Two-Tone Warble (Tom D.), Sunday, 6 August 2023 11:45 (nine months ago) link

haven't read the fallout yet but if an English male player reacted to missing a pen the way rapinoe did they'd be a petition to remove his citizenship.

At work so I can't watch it but England apparently being played off the park by Nigeria.

Continuous Two-Tone Warble (Tom D.), Monday, 7 August 2023 09:15 (nine months ago) link

now down to 10 players being played off the park by Nigeria

you're a sick man, Buddy Rich (Noodle Vague), Monday, 7 August 2023 09:19 (nine months ago) link

They are (and down to 10 after a really idiotic moment from Lauren James), but Nigeria don’t exactly look like a huge goal threat. Eng to win on pens imo

crisp, Monday, 7 August 2023 09:20 (nine months ago) link

ah the crushing predictability of Noodle Vague suddenly taking an interest in this tournament at this particular moment

Not sure what the point of it was.

Continuous Two-Tone Warble (Tom D.), Monday, 7 August 2023 09:28 (nine months ago) link

i'm not sure what the point is of only popping one's head up to meanspiritedly and entirely predictably do the whole 'hurr hurr rubbish england hurr' thing at the first sign of actual adversity towards cockroach england like some sort of pavlovian misery-cheering

England/Britain same thing to England fans.

Continuous Two-Tone Warble (Tom D.), Monday, 7 August 2023 09:43 (nine months ago) link

but it's more that there have been a lot of teams, games and narratives in this tournament, England Crap is one of the more boring ones, it's what you expect even

Monthly Python (Tom D.), Sunday, 20 August 2023 10:02 (nine months ago) link

It's OK though because the Spanish commentator in the background is almost as loud.

Did she acknowledge it? She kind of sounds actually ill and labouring to speak, shit luck either way

A few have said that Panama free kick but a direct free kick can never be goa of the tournament, I've said so

imago, Sunday, 20 August 2023 10:57 (nine months ago) link

Interested by the implication that an indirect free kick could be. There's no better sight than a penalised backpass in the area resulting in a laid-off free kick being hoofed through a crowd of panicked, charging defenders and taking a few deflections on the way in

hiroyoshi tins in (Sgt. Biscuits), Sunday, 20 August 2023 11:09 (nine months ago) link

Well it wasn't a penalty, so fair enough.

Monthly Python (Tom D.), Sunday, 20 August 2023 11:28 (nine months ago) link

England sensing vulnerability and just going mad kick and rush and squandering possession constantly

when you think they couldn't get any lower the spanish federation says it will take legal action against jenni hermoso over her "lies". just absolute unrepentant scum from top to bottom. and the manager applauding that tantrum yesterday with a smile on his face was sickening as well.

oscar bravo, Saturday, 26 August 2023 07:38 (nine months ago) link

Not surprising he was smiling since part of the tantrum concerned a new 500k a year contract for him. Absolutely unreal how shameless this lot are, even in the context of football administrators. Totally overshadowing the fact that their country just won a fucking World Cup.
