No one is stopPing Brazil. Since they changed their coach I don’t think they lost. They are playing like someone playing FIFA on easy playing as Brazil. Really fun to watch.

Fee is already agreed according to Di Marzio and also Fabrizio romano reported the same. Fred will be in England this week to play Friendly, so Manutd will try to conclude the deal. This is reported by combination of Journalists, like Di Marzio, Fabrizio romano, Telegraph, BBC.

Not sure. Rumour was if we sell Pogba then we will sign SMS, don't think we will though.

Also if Fellaini leaves then we are short in midfield with Carrick retiring. So maybe we will sign 1 more CM, but not high profile one.

You called it, we dominated the first half. 65-70% possession. We lack proper finishing but I think we can win this. Identical formation as Inter this season so you can easily notice the difference in key positions.

Milinkovic-Savic hasn't been any impressive so far

Nearly scored a bicycle kick that was incorrectly ruled to be offside. Thought he had a decent chance earlier too and a good pass to Mitrovic that I overheard on the commentary while not watching but don't hold me to that last part, my commentator has gotten the player's name right about 40% of the time at best so may have been someone else.

He can give a yellow. The reason is that Prijovic is being held back and he swipes his hand to get rid of the contact. It's a yellow for me.

Sergej could have had 2 amazing assists for Mitrovic.

I'm pretty confident that Serbian media won't be happy with him unless he leads the team to a World Cup trophy. There's probably also some agents with influence there that want to promote their own guys and the media is the best outlet for that shit. "As good as SMS in the World Cup" and "Better than SMS in the World Cup" etc to inflate their value.

Kolarov was MVP today, but SMS was the 2nd best player.

Nope. Just double checked. You can't give yellow after VAR. I wasn't sure whether the rules for Serie A were same as for the WC. But they are. This was already thoroughly discussed here after the Vecino-Mandzukic incedent.

Kolarov was MVP today, but SMS was the 2nd best player.

The thing is that previous NT coach who lead the squad through qualification was very adamant on not calling SMS. Then NT coach was dropped without any particular reason and new one was appointed (Krstajic) despite lacking experience. Public is not completely supporting of this and opinions are very divided. Objectively looking it's all corrupt and someone is definitely getting a bit of cash in return for raising SMS's price. So now you have a very overpriced yet promising player that, like you said, has to deliver above all reasonable expectations in order for public to approve of him.

For some more context, Serie A is not nearly as popular here nowadays as it was about 15 years ago. Most people here only follow EPL and CL, with some people also being into La Liga but not as much. So a lot of people didn't really catch SMS's performances this season. At the same time domestic media is really pushing him as the next best thing since sliced bread and he is getting insane amounts of headlines and coverage.

Kolarov very very good.

But he only had 2 years left, and no resale value.

With or Without Kolarov, we still good, so Dalbert is better buy in my opinion.

Better Gambling two fullback ( Cancelo and Dalbert ) than buy old fullback.

Sad Thing, Cancelo get form, and Dalbert no.

And typical Inter,,,we buy Dalbert and throw away Cancelo .

Just like Alex Telles.. we buy Erkin and throw away him. :oblivious:

Howard Webb was just talking and he said you can give a yellow. I believe you can't check VAR to see if someone made a yellow card foul, but if you think someone made a red but believe it a yellow, you can do that.

Mitrovic fucked up the 2 chances badly but for the 2nd one the guy was exhausted and could hrsly walk. Krstajic should have taken him off earlier. I'll give him credit for winning the ball off of Costa Rica and getting the free kick for the goal. I'm not sure if we have anyone better though Prijovic is better technically but not sure if we'd be better with him.

If Brazil had a real football player instead of Paulinho in that midfield spot, they'd be the absolute favorites.

The best defensive line by far, best GK in the tournament (Neuer missed a season so can't really consider him #1 so soon) and his backup is probably top 5 lol and their offensive power is just too much. Not enough creativity to make that tick, but that's not a huge issue in the modern game where creativity is sort of frowned upon.
Fred should be starting over him from the current selection. I'd even consider that kid Arthur as a starter over Paulinho who shouldn't really be there.

No no we deemed him flop because he was still young and developing when he got here, in the toughest league in the world, but we dont have time or patience to give for young talents besides the fact that our crappy atmosphere of changing management every year doesnt help developing shit either, so now we're trying to buy already developed and experienced -necessarily older- players in 9, but hey we dont want old players we want young players who are still developing so they can flop again and we sell them to Liverpool to become superstars.

Im not saying Paulinho is one of the best players in his position but i he is a special and diffrent player. Strong heading, good shoot, physical, defending.. he has a litle bit of all. While players like Allan are really good at defending and physical BUT cant do much offensive.

Brazil seems so lost. The only players that are giving a fuck are Marcelo, Miranda, Casemiro and Coutinho. And Casemiro is no longer on. The rest are complacent and enjoying their career choices to earn money over anything else. (I'm leaving Alisson aside because there's not much he can do). This has been Brazil's problem since 2010, with the mental breakdown of their new generation who enjoy getting English, Russian and Chinese paychecks and forgot how to play for a win.

i agree that neymar goes down a bit too easily but honestly i think people are overall giving him a bit too much of a hard time. he is one of the most fouled players after all.

costarica played their honest defensive game but in the end crumbled and it was a deserved win for brazil.

So far it has been a WC of surprising results and performances, so I would say none of top teams were anything impressive. Croatia was great last night but I don't see them going far tbh, meanwhile I'm almost certain that Brazil is gonna make it to the final, so the other opponent could be one of France or Germany IMO.

Brazil has quality players, but they're not Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Kaka. They're no more that magical team that has phenomena. They can get to the final, but it's because the other top teams aren't really top anymore. I think only France surpass them with talent and players quality.

Croatia is interesting. They have a great pool of talents compared to other surrounding Balkan teams.

Besnik
22 Jun 18, 18:12
Actually I do think this side of Brazil is a magical team and also a complete package. Don't wanna go into details like defence, offence and everything but I think Brazil's quality is a little better than France and also they have a slight advantage of experience IMO.

Regarding other teams, I would say that football is more competitive nowadays from what it has been in earlier days, more tactical, so there is no easy games anymore though.

France has incredibly good attack, but honestly I don't think they are a better side than Brazil after all.

The salute is often used by sport fans and players when celebrating victories. After winning the 1995 European basketball championship (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurobasket_1995), the entire then-Yugoslav team (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yugoslav_national_basketball_team) displayed the three fingers. Sasha Djordjevic (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleksandar_%C4%90or%C4%91evi%C4%87) says he flashed the three fingers "not to be provocative. Just: that's Serbia, that's us, that's me – nothing else. It's my pride."[21] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three-finger_salute_(Serbian)#cite_note-21) Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Novak_Djokovic)raises three fingers after his victories.[22] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three-finger_salute_(Serbian)#cite_note-22)

Blatant shilling of SMS who, obvious to everyone, had to play all 90 minutes no matter what so he got relegated to a DLP midfielder role which was the dumbest decision of the evening. He also somehow managed to lose virtually every single duel he had. Ljajic was put in too late and that drama queen Mitrovic shouldn't have even started. He means well but he lacks physical prowess. Then the entire team collapsed and stopped even trying.

Please not this Balkan shit again.

Anyway, 2 things:

1. I appreciated that Brazil kept the potential for attacking even after Coutinho scored so late. They didn't just camp all 11 men in their own half, they didn't just run to the corner flag and shit around wasting time when they got the ball. When they got the ball, they attacked. Which is why they scored the second goal (duh). Even after they took out Gabriel Jesus and put in a DM Fernandinho, which is obviously a defensive tactical move, Neymar, Diego Costa and Coutinho still stayed high up enough on the pitch. This made sure Costa Rica had to defend, instead of just letting them set up in Brazil's half unopposed. Spalletti, take fucking notes :palm: I will never forget that derby against juve.

2. It was mentioned in another thread, but mods, please do rename each sub-thread to include the teams in the group. e.g. Group E - Brazil / Switzerland / Costa Rica / Serbia etc. I'm sitting here clicking on each link and going through each sub thread one by one to find the group that I actually want to discuss - and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

The Balkan thing is entirely up to the "Great Powers" who partitioned the area irregardless of any ethnic logic just to make vassal buffers for future wars. We're still living in the aftermath. Birds eye view of historical geopolitics is as fascinating as it is disgusting. This now has moved to the Near East. Anyway, don't blame each other, blame the ones that threw the shit to the fan and left the room a long time ago. Same happened with the state of Israel, the North Korean peninsula, Nagorno Karabakh and virtually every other conflict we had in the last thirty years.

Albanian eagle is not offensive to me at all so please stop projecting and generalizing. I laughed at it last night with my friend. Brazilian media apparently reported it as "white dove of peace", half the damn world didn't even get the reference. But here is what is not alright - had it been a match against Albania and had Albanians used that symbol it would be all fun and dandy. But when you represent one country and use a symbol of another country just because you intentionally want to cause a chimpout, and because you are counting on someone to get offended, then that is not alright. It's a matter of intention. Not a single Swiss got his morale boosted by seeing an albanian symbol.


Stop saying kosovo is serbia.

Oh and to add up to what I previously tried to phrase - look no further than fucking Africa for an encyclopedic example. Forget about the Balkans or the Near (Middle) East - Imperialism fucked the continent for good when it hit and especially after those countries gained independence. Warring tribes were joined in a single country, tribes that lived in piece before were pitted against each other on purpose (Rwanda, which soon after caused the genocide), etc. And the French are still maintaining their grip on Sub-Saharan ex-colonies, basically suffocating any democracy. We can also talk about American influence in political life in South America, but let's not go there.

Crazy night. Fantastic game. 2 really awesome goals. The first half should be forgotten as Serbia were completely owning us. The second half was more 50-50 and with grinta we came out on top.

Regarding the double-headed eagle celebration: when the goals were scored I barely noticed the celebration because we were jumping and screaming drenched in beer. Seeing the replay I'd be lying if I said the celebration didn't bother me. It's small but annoying blemish on an otherwise perfect night.

In the post match interview when the reporter asked Xhaka whether the celebration was political he said it was just dedicated to the people back home and not directed at the Serbian fans. He said it with a light smirk though. Also keep in mind both Shaqiri and Xhaka went straight to the Serbian fans to celebrate. So yeah, it's quite obvious whom the celebration was meant for.

Even considering how recent the tensions between the two countries are, the way they were heavily booed and the crazy emotions in a world cup match, I'd say the celebration was unexpected. I can only imagine there were specific comments directed at the Albanians of the team that provoked them to celebrate in a spiteful manner. Nevertheless it was stupid and unecessary and it hurts the effort of the sport to distance itself from politics.

So, ADRossi, the infractions are only a thing for the members you don’t like? And the comments you delete are the comments of members you don’t like?
But the comment of your fellow moderator, the looser who started all this, is still there.
So many times I wanted to donate to this forum, and people like you are the reason I never did.

Im referring to that Macedonian guy...he's the one who started all this shit by acting dumb and mocking, and saying that's a butterfly...him being from Macedonia, im 100% sure he knew what the gesture means, never-less he made the butterfly comment as a form of mockery from pettiness.

Let me be abundantly clear about some things:

1) It is your fault you received multiple infractions, not mine. You are the one who is blatantly disregarding forum rules because you feel the need to express your personal feelings. I issued two warnings on the matter, and thatdude issued one. You chose to ignore all three warnings, and are reaping what you sewed
2) If you're going to insult someone, at least do so using an actual insult. It's "loser" not "looser."
3) We don't want your money, and frankly we don't want you posting here if you're going to be this argumentative and temperamental. Need I remind you what the last infraction you received (before today) was for? This is a trend, and it's not a good one.
4) He's from Australia, you twat.
5) To answer the question that has you PMSing, I'm not deleting the butterfly post because it actually initiated an educating conversation. I, who frankly doesn't given a damn about anything pertaining to Balkan politics and have no roots to the region, was objectively watching the Switzerland game and Xhaka scored, a co-worker I was watching the game with asked me what Xhaka's celebration was. My answer? "It must be a butterfly?" So stop being so sensitive and acknowledge the fact that to objective third parties, it what a reasonable question. A forum member answered the question to clarify what it actually was (which I appreciate), and that should have been the end of the conversation.

ah ok...you choose what's offensive and what's not, based on your personal knowledge, or the lack of it...Because an insult is not an insult if an ignorant like you, doesn't know the meaning of the insult.

That douche might be in Australia, but i go by the flag, and it's Macedonia and he is Macedonian descent, and you know it and he knows it, and Macedonians dont like Albanians, therefore he knew exactly what was he doing, he willingly and knowingly insulted another nation, but you act and defend him as innocent...you twat.

oh an the money thing, i can care less if you personally want me to post or no, or you don't want my money, you will never have it, i just said I WANTED to donate, but because of people like you, i wont.
Also, why when few months back i said, if Sassuolo and Chievo get relegated to Serie B, i'll donate $500, you were so happy and said you will quote me on that? if you don't want my money, then why bother with my comment about money, and wanting it?
I choose to come to this forum, not because of you, but because of lots of smart members here, who are not douches like you. It's because of few guys here and their excellent knowledge of things, that keep me coming here. You on other hand, when i see your opinions, i just scroll down.
So don't get all hyped up just cuz you have a button on your computer that gives you power to ban me or whatnot..treat everybody equally, and don't act like some kind of keyboard moralist and educate people.
Now here, ban me. I did you a favor.

i was reading on some newspapers that there is a good chance of a brazil vs germany clash in the round of 16, but in reality germany-swtitzerland and mexico-brazil seem more likely to me.

mexico need a draw against sweden in order to be first in their group, at that point germany will be second by beating south korea. this is the most likely outcome of the group, i reckon.

but i'm not so sure brazil will come first out of its group: they will face serbia, while switzerland (same points) plays costa rica.

brazil will probably end up winning against serbia but if switzerland overcome them in goal difference, then they are first.

FIFA charged both Xhaka & Shaqiri and yesterday included Lichtsteiner for potential 2 match bans. Swiss radio are saying the SFA and a Swiss delegate who used to be chairman of the FIFA disciplinary committe are confident of a positive outcome with nothing more than a fine

Interestingly, the internal debate within Suisse is divided on how to view what happened but most feel that after the incidents between Switzerland & Albania for Euro 2016 that FIFA should've done a better job ensuring a sporting environment ahead of the encounter with Serbia that elicited the reaction from the players

I am on this forum 10+ yrs and seriously thinking to quit.

Someone please prove me wrong about off topic/on topic stuff.

After game Serbia - Swiss, Krstajic gave “off topic statement” what insulted me and I had to comment that, without insulting anyone except moron Serbia coach.

After same game Serbian fans in Wien sang a songs very insulting to my people and I commented than, without insulting anyone.

My comments had a reference that Serbs insulting my people even we didn’t participate in that game at all but than they’re complaining about Shaqiri and Xakha mocking them.

How is that off topic? Is it my fault that Serbia’s coach mentioned Haag in post Footbal game comment?


Why we are not allowed to comment Serbia’s coach and Serbia’s fans in thread of the group where Serbia plays if those comments are connected with actual things they did and if we are not insulting anyone?

While it s not exactly off topic it is politics and not football and any discussion of it will eventually lead to a political debate since that is the nature of the problem!
Thats why mods are trying to stop this conversation as soon as it starts cause it just wont end in a good place. 99% of political discussions on this forum end with banings and suspensions so why not just leave it out. Also remember when we had the politics sub forum? how long did that go well?

Anyways i get your point but you ll have to accept that discussing these incidents will lead to a political discussion which is forbidden on here.

If you really wanna discuss it with a FIF member take it to PM.

Edit: Also it would be sad loosing Long term members over this.

also don't lie to yourself that western/developed europe is less racist than US, no one in US would get angry at an Albanian or African celebrating in a certain fashion, especially if the story was that the national team was made of by refugees which the country you were playing against was the reason for them being there in first place.

ok my bad in this case did not pay attention to how this shit got started was just arguing that political discussions on this forum never lead to anything other than banings and suspensions.

Also I m not that sure Lichtsteiner knew what he was doing when he was doing it my theory is that he saw shaq and Xhaka do it and he just joined in.
Of course it might also be that he just wanted to suport Xhaka and Shaq and thats why he joined in.

Anyways i think people are making to big of a fuss about it and most dont know that both shaq and Xhaka got hassled online by serbs a lot before this game, they both said there was a lot of drama in the build up to this game already for some time so i can understand that in the heat of the moment they might do something that might not belong on the pitch.

Also gonna be intetresting to see what FIFA does and how they take the explanation of both shaq and Xhaka they both said that it was just a sign for the relatives in Albania who always stood by their side.

Anyways what pisses me of most is that of course right wing media and politics in Switzerland are using this shit for their shitty propaganda.

Like pimp said, an Albanian hater mod started all this...and another douche mod, protecting him on stupid, ridiculous basis, that he's "australian"...therefore is not offensive....yet, some of us got infractions for calling that moron who started it out.
You see, it's who has more power, he is right, in this forum.

I can only speak for myself as a mod but I will say this. The only thing I ever try to do is help keep the forum enjoyable for the majority. I understand that you guys might enjoy discussing politics on an Inter forum, but the majority do not. They do not care, hence the reason we have the rule. The other reason is to keep things civil to try and keep things like this page from happening. We try and nip things in the bud so that discussions do not get out of hand and the environment on the forum does not become toxic. A great example of this was Azzkikr. The ones on the forum who liked him loved him, but for the majority his presence was a detriment to the forum. He caused fights, discouraged new members, and was an an all around divisive presence. Politics are the same way, you just can’t let that wolf in the hen house. As someone else mentioned it was tried before and it failed.

Look, if you don’t have respect for the mods, that’s your decision. But please have respect for your fellow forum members. Most of which are here to talk about Inter and the World Cup. I as a mod will continue to try and help the forum stay a fun place for the average Inter fan. That will include given an infraction to the next person who brings up this topic for a 3rd time. If you’re not okay with that than perhaps this is not the forum for you. If you’re not okay with that than perhaps the forum will be a better place without you.

I like a lot of you and would hate to see you leave. In fact I think a lot of you are valuable members of the forum that help give the place character. However, I’m not going to stop enforcing the rules because they do make the forum a better place.

At the same time, it's discussing something that actually happened in this group. It's not random off topic political talk.

I personally think it's fine to discuss something like that, as long as it doesn't go into OTHER arguments, but I get that that's hard to police, so 0 tolerance is more efficient.

Much respect for you my friend.
I agree with all this, my point and anger in this bullishit that has been going on in this thread, is only and solely on the double standards that happened, and the two mods, the one who started all this, his comment is still up there, and not deleted, and the other douche who decided that that post is not offensive because it doesn’t offend him personally, and the guy who said it was “Australian”.
If he’s not offended, doesn’t mean it’s not offensive to Albanias in this forum. Few of them pointed to that comment that started it all, but somehow it fell to deaf ears, but others got punished for replying to him.
Double standards in my opinion, and that’s what grinds my gear. Sorry
