Oh come on, you know as well as I do that cameras go out of their way to specifically find hot women in the stands.

And thank fuck for that.

Two possibilities:
a) Stop zooming in on fans during games, especially during play time.
b) Zoom in on hotties and crazy fucks.

There's no middle ground, sorry. FIFA, you may once again fuck off with your stupidity.

Not sure if there's a general non-2018 thread, but it's been confirmed that the dates for the 2022 World Cup will be November 21 to December 18..

France has managed to knock off Uruguay, Belgium, and Argentina with relative ease. Somehow that's less deserving than having to beat two teams on PKs and one in extra time? Croatia's marquee win this tournament is who exactly? An Argentine team that France has also beaten, or an England team everyone here likes to dunk on?

croatia's marquee win will be france.

To Dylan's point, this would be low of my priority list if I was FIFA, but whatever.

I didn't say they didn't. But going out of your way to censor them, is idiotic.

Start sooner and play more games during a week. Hope we don't have any Sat-Tue-Thur-Sun weekof football, it'll kill the leagues and players. Happens on FM though :lol:

Champions League will also be affected. In the past, November was the end date of the group stage for some seasons. Maybe a similar approach is taken here. They are also changing the rules in 2021 so they can manage to come up with something for that. Hope it brings the 2nd group stage back.

Liberals have gone so far left, they ended up on the far right.

Yup, have no idea when the 1st half of the regular season will stop. I also wonder what effect it'll have on the players. Let's say you play a World Cup Final and then 2 weeks later you have to go and play in Frosinone lol.

Aren't those "hot women" people just like the rest of us?
Sadly they are not.Cause many of them are not on stadium for a football reasons but because of his promotion for various reasons.We have first case like that in Croatia this WC with some ugly chick who are supposedly most beautiful girl on the stadium according to newspapers who sponsors her.

According to L'Equipe, Mbappe will be donating the entirety of his World Cup earnings to the Preiers de Cordees association, a charity that aims to organise sports activities for children with disabilities.


It's understood that Mbappe earns around £17,000 per game, with bonuses added. But Mbappe, who is a patron of the association, is donating anything he earns. The donation will include the reported £265,000 bonus that the star is in line to earn should France win the tournament.


Mbappe's generosity has caused some of his fellow Frenchmen to follow suit, with Samuel Umtiti emphasising that representing the national team was not to do with the money.

Props to Mbappe and Umtiti.

So I was fortunate on a work trip to reside in a hotel on Trg bana Jelacica in Zagreb during welcoming party for Croatian football team. Crazy atmosphere really. I'll try to post some pics and videos in the following days.

Neymar instead of Perisic? Glad that I've stopped caring since Sneijder 2010.

Neymar shouldn't even be over Coutinho, let alone Perisic.
