Thanks for the quick green, modmins!  Sorry for the short notice.
 
2022-09-26 2:42:56 PM  
And USMNT play tomorrow against KSA
 
2022-09-26 2:48:45 PM  
Well, on one hand: football.  OTOH: Jon Strong calling it. 🙃

It will be very interesting to see how the USA plays after that turn over debacle against Japan.

England in "red" with sky blue font.
 
2022-09-26 2:56:45 PM  
England with a counter, but Kane could not find Foden on the return.
 
2022-09-26 2:58:56 PM  
Oh a great feed to Sterling, but he can't figure out what to do with it after receiving the pass.
 
2022-09-26 2:59:22 PM  
Pope is so lucky ze Germans didn't score on that blunder.
 
2022-09-26 3:06:52 PM  
No way a hand ball was getting called on the wall with that German set piece.
 
2022-09-26 3:09:38 PM  
Germany intercepts, but they look a bit lost on how to apply pressure.

And then Pope almost gives it away AGAIN!
 
2022-09-26 3:12:03 PM  
Germany threatening again and Maguire relieves the pressure.
 
2022-09-26 3:13:10 PM  
Ter Stegen gets out a strong left hand to block Sterling's shot.
 
2022-09-26 3:14:11 PM  
Sterling with a great chance but he could not beat Ter Schtegan.  What a pass from Luke Shaw.

And almost another chance, but the pass was behind Kane.

England finally look awake...26' into the match.

Netherlands is jealous of this shade of orange

Kane with a 2nd bite at the cherry goes just wide.

Seriously.  It's the colour of really good Pacific salmon...or the Golden Gate Bridge.

harleyquinnical: Kane with a 2nd bite at the cherry goes just wide.


I've never understood this phrase.
Who needs two bites to ear a cherry?
 
2022-09-26 3:17:12 PM  
Kane picks the pocket, but Sterling was too strong on the pass to Fodan he didn't have to give since he had the defender beat.
 
2022-09-26 3:18:51 PM  
Germany screaming for a penalty.

Eat a cherry.
Not sure how to ear a cherry.
Spell check you dummy.

This strikes me as stemming from a game of trying to eat a cherry dangling from a string.  The Internet is actually clueless on the source of this idiom.
 
2022-09-26 3:24:00 PM  
Oh what a great looking run by Sterling.  Too bad the pass was too heavy.

Jon Stones is down.
 
2022-09-26 3:30:30 PM  
England with a huge let off, not getting at least a shot away on that play.  German escape and proceed to attack.
 
2022-09-26 3:32:40 PM  
So far all this has done is prove that Pickford remains England's #1
 
2022-09-26 3:33:10 PM  
Great pass to Sterling from Kane, but the shot was right at Ter Stegan.  IDK why he didn't go far post.

I blame the whole "play out the back" strategy Southgate insists upon.

I'll forward your complaints to Eugene.  He'll handle it from there.
 
2022-09-26 3:37:11 PM  
Halftime and 0-0.  England had better chances, but Germany almost pounced on mistakes by keeper Nick Pope.
 
2022-09-26 3:38:41 PM  
Meanwhile, in the other group match, Italy lead Hungary 1-0 on a goal from Raspadori
 
2022-09-26 3:42:49 PM  
Wow.  Italy should have scored in the 5', and their goal came off a mistake by the keeper trying to play out the back.  Why is this considered a good strategy? HONESTLY?!
 
2022-09-26 3:54:22 PM  
Nice pass to try to find Gundogan, but the connection failed.
 
2022-09-26 3:55:20 PM  
Nice shot from Sterling but Ter Stegan hangs on.
 
2022-09-26 3:56:52 PM  
Wow.  Werner gets that on target, it would have counted.

Germany screaming for a penalty.  How that isn't a penalty is beyond me.
 
2022-09-26 3:56:56 PM  
Harry does Harry things
 
2022-09-26 3:57:11 PM  
And VAR calls the Dutch official over.
 
2022-09-26 3:57:34 PM  
Germany gets the penalty.
 
2022-09-26 3:57:51 PM  
PK to Germany after a check of the monitor.
Maguire turns the ball over and then brings down the attacker in the box.
 
2022-09-26 3:58:29 PM  
And it comes from Musiala applying pressure as Maguire tries to play out the back.
 
2022-09-26 3:58:42 PM  
Gundogan converts it.
1-0
 
2022-09-26 3:58:44 PM  
Just turned on England Germany - is it really quiet there or just my feed?
 
2022-09-26 3:58:55 PM  
Gundogan to take it...bottom right corner and ze Germans lead.
 
2022-09-26 3:58:56 PM  
don't even have to wait for Germany to eventually win on penalties
 
2022-09-26 3:59:34 PM  

Cajnik: Just turned on England Germany - is it really quiet there or just my feed?


Its Etihad level quiet

The mic gain is down to cut the crowd noise on the broadcast...or it's just overpowered by John Strong.
 
2022-09-26 4:00:19 PM  
oh that looked like an obvious handball.
 
2022-09-26 4:01:25 PM  

harleyquinnical: oh that looked like an obvious handball.


off the noggin.

England may actually have to attack
 
2022-09-26 4:01:32 PM  
all England had to do was score one goal against Italy and seal the top spot for us, but nooooooo

England sucks so bad they even farked Hungary.
 
2022-09-26 4:01:56 PM  

harleyquinnical: oh that looked like an obvious handball.


Replay showed it was a head.
 
2022-09-26 4:02:22 PM  
Bellinghamooney.
 
2022-09-26 4:03:03 PM  
there's a channel here from Italy that purportedly has the Hungary match, I think an Italian channel, but it's blacked out -- not sure if because of the match or technical issues

found a dodgy feed on Twitter, but that went out shortly after the first Italian goal

seeing that Italy are up 2, I think I might go out, too
 
2022-09-26 4:03:44 PM  
Was talking with my mom yesterday and ended up explaining why the World Cup was being played around the holidays, because she thought that was a bit odd.  So in addition to the college handegg bowl games she always watches, she's going to try to watch the World Cup too.  I feel like I'm slowly converting her.
 
2022-09-26 4:04:36 PM  
Bellingham with a shot out of nowhere that almost worked.
 
2022-09-26 4:05:07 PM  
Italy have 2 shots on goal and 2 goals. 

Sigh, just one of those days. 

And now they don't even have the "at least they're not fascists" label for the neutrals to be happy about.
 
2022-09-26 4:06:07 PM  
How Germany did not score there was nothing shy of a miracle.
 
2022-09-26 4:06:46 PM  
And no Züla  with a shot just wide of the far post.
 
2022-09-26 4:08:33 PM  
Werner showing he still has the yips not getting that shot even on frame.
 
2022-09-26 4:10:08 PM  
lol, german player tried to get the keeper booked there

[skinner pathetic meme]
 
2022-09-26 4:10:28 PM  
Another pass by Foden behind his target.
 
2022-09-26 4:11:31 PM  
Shots

HUN 11 (6)
ITA 9 (2)

well, it's only the ones that go in that count
 
2022-09-26 4:12:09 PM  
Dier upset with himself about not getting that corner down and on frame.

Foden out, Saka in.
Sterling out, Mount in
 
2022-09-26 4:12:23 PM  
why are england so bad at this game?
 
2022-09-26 4:12:43 PM  
both matches 0-2 now
 
2022-09-26 4:12:52 PM  
whelp, that's that
 
2022-09-26 4:13:24 PM  

medius: why are england so bad at this game?


I was midway through typing this when the goal went in. 

I started it talking about the attack and finished it about the defense.
 
2022-09-26 4:13:29 PM  
What a goal from Havertz.  2-0 Deutschland.
 
2022-09-26 4:14:13 PM  
Wait, Havertz can score?  Who knew?
 
2022-09-26 4:15:44 PM  
Raum off; Gosens on
Sané off; Gnabry on
 
2022-09-26 4:18:00 PM  
England goal!
 
2022-09-26 4:18:19 PM  
Shaw gets one over the line.
1-2
 
2022-09-26 4:18:33 PM  
England with a meaningless goal in a meaningless match. 

Sounds about par.
 
2022-09-26 4:20:25 PM  
ok, now that was nice
 
2022-09-26 4:20:40 PM  
the match I want to be 2-2 is still 0-2 :-/
 
2022-09-26 4:20:42 PM  
Mount ties it up.
2-2
 
2022-09-26 4:20:46 PM  
Who the fark were those guys in red shirts in the first half?
 
2022-09-26 4:20:59 PM  

dietbubba: whelp, that's that


OR NOT
 
2022-09-26 4:21:37 PM  

Trocadero: Who the fark were those guys in red shirts in the first half?


these shirts are red?

they look like the dutch team on TV here
 
2022-09-26 4:23:19 PM  
All I did was put some shorts on, and England equalize.
 
2022-09-26 4:23:32 PM  
England trying to give the home fans a win.
 
2022-09-26 4:24:25 PM

I stopped watching and boom boom
 
2022-09-26 4:27:51 PM  
boom 

I want you in my room.
 
2022-09-26 4:28:16 PM  
just a yellow, I guess a red would have been harsh since it was unintentional
 
2022-09-26 4:28:22 PM  
Kane came damn close but rippling only the side netting.

On that replay, I don't think it should matter if he got the ball first.  Bellingham got his ankle trodded on.  That could easily break a bone.
 
2022-09-26 4:28:27 PM  
Reviewatorium says it's a foul.
 
2022-09-26 4:28:49 PM  
And penalty given to England.
 
2022-09-26 4:29:01 PM  
since I couldn't watch my match, at least I got to watch a comeback 

:-/ 

/the wrong kid died
 
2022-09-26 4:29:10 PM  

medius: just a yellow, I guess a red would have been harsh since it was unintentional


I don't see any advantage there, both going for the ball. But a faul inside the box nonetheless
 
2022-09-26 4:29:14 PM  
Schlotterbeck is lucky to not be sent off.
 
2022-09-26 4:29:29 PM  
Kane!!
 
2022-09-26 4:29:40 PM  
well this has gone fractal Busey
 
2022-09-26 4:29:44 PM  
Germany now with all the questions heading into the WC.
 
2022-09-26 4:30:00 PM  
Kane to take the PK...GOAL.  Top corner...no chance for Ter Stegan.
 
2022-09-26 4:30:35 PM  

harleyquinnical: Schlotterbeck is lucky to not be sent off.


Yeah, that's a leg breaker

Cajnik: medius: just a yellow, I guess a red would have been harsh since it was unintentional

It was studs on ankle. I've seen red given for those.
 
2022-09-26 4:30:40 PM  
When Germany went up 2-0, I thought it was the dreaded lead.  Just goes to show it really is.
 
2022-09-26 4:31:19 PM  
Kehrer booked for...something.
 
2022-09-26 4:33:06 PM  

harleyquinnical: When Germany went up 2-0, I thought it was the dreaded lead.  Just goes to show it really is.


why couldn't hungary do it? all they had to do was not lose :-/

and now drei drei
 
2022-09-26 4:33:44 PM  
Pope pooped
Havertz equalizes
 
2022-09-26 4:33:52 PM  
Fractal Busey while inside a plaid dumpster fire
 
2022-09-26 4:34:43 PM  
Looks like Pope doesn't want the job
 
2022-09-26 4:34:46 PM  
and that, my liege, is how we know this game has gone banana-shaped
 
2022-09-26 4:36:06 PM  
OH COME ON!  I WENT TO THE LOO!
 
2022-09-26 4:36:23 PM  
What a stop by Ter Stegen
 
2022-09-26 4:36:34 PM  

medius: and that, my liege, is how we know this game has gone banana-shaped


But which banana shape? Euro zone bananas or Brexit bananas?
 
2022-09-26 4:36:40 PM  
nice save by ter to keep it 3-3
 
2022-09-26 4:36:51 PM  
Saka should have had that.  Just a bit of air and he has it.
 
2022-09-26 4:37:15 PM  

bumfuzzled: Looks like Pope doesn't want the job


He's clearly uncomfortable with playing out the back.
 
2022-09-26 4:37:26 PM  
whoa, not the scoreline i expected
 
2022-09-26 4:39:03 PM  

whither_apophis: whoa, not the scoreline i expected


Me neither.  This has been an interesting half of football, especially the last 15'.
 
2022-09-26 4:41:05 PM  
you'll live
 
2022-09-26 4:42:11 PM  

whither_apophis: you'll live


Tis but a scratch.
 
2022-09-26 4:44:10 PM  
Clearly I need to catch the highlights on utube
 
2022-09-26 4:44:30 PM  
What an ending to this match.  England had chances in the first half they couldn't capitalize on.  They showed some goal scoring depth with the bench.  We learned Pope is really uncomfortable about playing out the back.  Southgate has 2 months to address some of these issues.
 
2022-09-26 4:45:11 PM  
Italy nick a trip to the finals. 

The first win for their new femme fascist PM's regime.
 
2022-09-26 4:46:38 PM  
FS1 spend the big dollar on that studio
