    Can we have a fans World Cup? We'd be good at that.


    Reminds me of last week when we got a street full of Belgians singing The Fields of Athenry in Werchter.

    Got too much shit tbh. He was made the scape goat when David Luiz was playing like a retard on the field. Luiz wasn't booed because he was crowd favorite so they picked on Fred.

    He played well in confederation cup and it is not his mistake that Brazil hardly created anything for him.

    Fred played just like everyone who had seen him play before expected. Scolari is to be blamed for chosing him instead of Fred being blamed for playing poorly.

    You could see it in their interviews that they were sure they are going to win the worldcup.

    I blame Sclorai's tactics for what happened. For instance, if you rewatch Brazil's last two games, you see in Germany game, Brazil was pushing high and they weren't tracking back even when they lost the ball. You could see even when Germany counter attack with 4-5 players, there are only 2-3 players in Brazil's defense and the rest are just standing high up waiting for the defense to get the ball and pass it to them. Also Luiz attacked a lot in that game and left a lot of gaps behind him. Basically Brazil was trying to implement "best way to defend is attack".
    In the end Scolari succumbed to public pressure I think. He was getting shit for Brazil's negative tactics, so he decided to try to be attacking by replacing Neymar with Bernard for the Germany game instead of playing three CMs in 4-3-3, which considering Germany's superior squad would've been the safer and smarter choice.

    But Scolari can't be blamed for Marcelo pushing up like crazy (unless he told him to) or Fernandinho dawdling and losing the ball like an idiot. And it's not his fault that Fred is probably Brazil's best striker atm or that Brazil are lacking top-class playmakers.

    Bastian Kroos

    James

    Robben Messi Muller


    Not sure on the first 11 as it was hard to leave Mascha, Garay and Neymar but IMO these players had better tournament.

    Seems like this WC is attracting fans from around the world specially from north America.

    Was talking to this fine chicka on fb yesterday and she was asking me if I watched the soccer world cup..

    me: yes dear, it`s football WC btw
    chick: no soccer, Amercian football sucks I hate it
    me: no it`s football cause it`s... you know what never mind, yeah I was watching soccer WC, Im a soccer fan.
    chick: great! Im starting to like it, it`s hard to control the ball with your feet and do this tricks, it`s harder than holding the ball in your hand and run like an idiot like in football!
    me: Yes, sure, football sucks
    chick: so when the leagues game begin so I start watch
    I started giving her a free lesson about the leagues and their teams and ofcourse, 75% of that was about Inter to try to convince her to watch and support us, knowing deep down she`s gona hate me in future for it

    chick: that`s intersting, Inter sound like a big and honorable team, so what stars do you have on your team?
    me: ummm.. .. well we have the current best GK in the world
    chick: wow you have that German GK!!!
    me: no no another one he`s called Handanovic
    chick: which team in WC did he play in?
    me: no dear he hasnt played in the WC
    chick: how can he be so good but not in the WC
    me: well it`s complicated but I can explain..
    chick: ok what stars do you have that we saw in the WC?
    me: ... well we have PALACIO! the super FW of argentina!
    chick: which one was that? they all sucked
    me: well yeah, he wasnt in form this WC, he`s the guy with a long single hair..
    chick: oh well I recognize him, he wasted that sitter true?
    me: yeeeah
    chick: I want to watch a team with a lot of stars like Messi and that hot guy who scores a lot of goals from Brazil, what`s his name?
    me: Neymar
    chick: yes! where do they play?
    me: Martijn is gona be disappointed at me
    chick: what?
    me: no never mind, actually both play for one team, it`s called Barcelona
    chick: wow! ok I`ll support Barcelona!
    me: yes ofcourse, I bet you would, but they arrogant and divers and...
    chick: ok I`ll support Barcelona.
    me: .. ok enough about football, take off your cloth and let`s cyber fuck
    chick: oh yea baby, I miss you *****censored*******
    me: *****censored********

    Oh well, the rest of the convo is a.. unnecessary.. but this should sum it up, WC is attracting more fans, and ofcourse they`ll support the teams with more stars naturally, glory hunters or whatever.

    In my opinion for me this is best XI of this WC:

    Neuer

    De Vrij - Hummels - Garay

    Lahm - Mascherano - Kroos - Blind

    Rodriguez

    Robben - Muller

    Made a slight error in my calculations but remains essentially the same.

    For outfield (non GKs) players who played more than 360min (equivalent of 4 full games),

    - Messi had 2nd lowest total average distance covered (8.1km). Only player less than him was Thiago Silva (8.0km).
    - Messi had the lowest average distance covered when not in possession (2.4km).

    In both cases, he covered less distance than fucking FRED.....

    Ridiculous for the "best" player.

    Good team, but Vlaar was better than De Vrij in my opinion.

    Still can t believe messi won the best player award!! I mean what the fuck did he do despite his goals he was the laziest fuck i ve seen in years playing in a world cup. Also why is there no outrage in the media about this decision it s so obvious that he was not the best the whole fucking german team deserved it more then messi and James, Benzema, Robben i could go on all deserved it more then messi.

    Anyway i guess thats fifa as long as sepp that mafioso is running that organization we will keep on seeing shit like this and believe me he is not going to step down anytime soon.
    Which matches do you feel more, those with Juventus or Milan?

    So glad it's over. Probably the worst WC I saw after that scandalous 2002 bull crap. & why you might ask? I don't know where to begin:



    - The way FIFA decided which teams will be group leaders in the draw. Fucking Switzerland, Urugay, Belgium as group leaders & not Italy & Holland. Because why not punish them for not losing a single qualification game.

    - So manyyy errors, so many god damn referee errors. Embarrassing for a World Cup. (which in my book has now much lower quality in every sense compared to lets say, the Champions League) You have errors in CL too, but not every single fucking game in & out.

    - Low quality games. Boring, predictable knockout stages. Costa Rica, Algeria, Belgium... come on, eh. Who seriously wants to see these dudes in a World Cup knock out stage? & then Holland puts one on top & can't even beat Costa Rica.

    Massive palm overall in my book & then comes Germany & wins the final, in a game they didn't deserve to win. Although keeping the overall tournament in mind, the title was deserved.



    So, FUCK THE WORLD CUP &...



    ...let's dump this entire WC shit in the FIF garbage & get back to our dear Inter. I so miss my Inter.
