Croatia def. Italy 1-0 in a stunner

Spain def. Ireland 3-0 in a snoozer

Italian-Irish here...

Not expecting Ireland to put up any fight at all. As for Italy, they can barely score at all (and I'm pissed at them for all the match-fixing shiat anyway). At least they have Buffon in net.

So, this should go swimmingly.

orange storm: I like Italy's anthem, it sounds so Italian.


I swore it was from a Verdi opera before I looked it up.

And how can a culture that gave us opera, Michelangelo, Dante, Ferrari, etc, invent the most boring form of soccer known to man? English kick-and-run is understandable, the English are pragmatic and tacky. But come on Italy. Less Machiavelli, more Raphael.

and it seems like uefa is going oprah style with the fines. you get a fine. you get a fine. everyone gets a fine.

WARSAW, Poland (AP) -- UEFA has fined the German soccer association $12,550 because fans threw paper missiles at Portugal players during a European Championship match. ... UEFA also fined the Portuguese federation $6,275 because the team was late for the second half.

they looked more like balls than missiles to me. and should throwing things at the farkfaces be illegal?

I hope this doesn't start a mass exodus. It'd be nice if Spurs made an attempt to be a contender, rather then selling all their players. There was a story this morning that Barca isn't going to bid on Bale cause the asking price is too much. I could see Modric leaving though, sad as that is.

Sure there is. But that is a very poor measure, which was my point. Eastern Europe is poor and uneducated. Poor and uneducated people are more racist. That's the common link.

Rumor has it that Trapattoni is going to have the Cobh Ramblers squad play against Italy.

This Ireland team is awful. If only there are some activity their fans could partake in to help sooth their sorrows.
 
2012-06-14 04:13:19 PM  
...well, at least the Mets are helping out the Yankees with another solid win over the Rays, lol.

Torres....doing what he couldn't do all season....

Well, it probably wouldn't work out, as it's another activity you do without use of the hands.

Oh well, we'll always have Kashima.

I think we should all have a drink for the Irish. I would only be the right thing to do.

Ireland now officially 5000/1 to win it all at Sportingbet. Skipping a pack of smokes for a five dollar bet.

Not much Given could have done. The Irish defense has been brutal these past two games.

How drunk is Tommy Smyth going to be when we go back to the studio? I hope he lunges across the desk at Lalas.

The 4th goal wasn't the goalie's fault. The five guys in front of him that were just watching Fabregas walking through the box on the other hand..

Yep. "A fair bit of drinking, I won't lie. Happy drunks, the Irish." Love the commentary.

Yes. And they're still singing. A good five minute now. About the only thing about the last two games that makes me proud to be Irish.

Italy has never beaten Ireland unter Trapattoni. That, I fear, will end on Monday.

As Mammy used to say, they couldn't kick snow off a rope.

borrowed from the cnnsi.com live blog.

"Group C now reads Spain 4, Croatia 4, Italy 2, Ireland 0. It will make life easier if Spain and Croatia DON'T draw in the next game, but if they do, and Italy beats Ireland, the top three will be separated on head-to-head goal differential in their own mini-league. So: if Spain draws 2-2, Italy will be out. 0-0, and Italy will go through. Italy faced exactly that situation in Euro 04, when a 2-2 draw between Denmark and Sweden knocked them out. The coach then? Giovanni Trapattoni... "

here's to hoping it's 2-2 draw on monday between spain and croatia.

The Spanish team are a credit to the sport I love.

The Irish fans are a credit to the country I love.
