watching two teams who have zero chance of winning the WC doesn't seem at all pointless.

chucknasty: watching two teams who have zero chance of winning the WC doesn't seem at all pointless.


I'm guessing you don't watch a lot of any sports then?

France has been known to throw a wobbly every now and then, but it seems like they have their shiat together this time around. I expect them to go safely through.

I can more easily see Senegal beating England depending which England team turns up. And there is enough randomness in soccer* that Senegal winning by the odd goal would be a surprise but not a shock.

*I grew up in England in the 60s and 70s playing "soccer" and I'm not about to change now just to satisfy a snobbish 1980s Telegraph sports writer.

I'm hoping, but not expecting, for a moment of Lewandowski magic to sink Mbappe and company. (I have France winning the whole thing in my bracket, but would take anything for an easier path for the Three Lions)

England are starting to play their way into confidence, which means that they should beat Senegal. England so seldom does what it should that I'm expecting penalty shootout heartbreak though.

France will get past Poland, but the scoreline will make it look much worse than the game actually is, while England will get past Senegal in one of those traditional "all the possession, all the shots, none of them of any damn quality or result" matches until a late winner for Senegal gets called back for something accurately and the English remember how to finish with quality.

There's a subset of farkers who not only don't like soccer, but seem to have a seething hatred for it. And they love crashing the threads to let everyone know all about it. Over and over and over and over.

that's why i only watch international soccer.  no other sport or league has any chance to win the world cup!

Mbappé could win the whole thing by himself so I don't know what that troll is trolling about.

bon jour, Farqueurs. I figure France area advancing because of how much talent the have. Were it simple Mbappé vs Lewandowski, I would take the latter.  However, Le Bleus have Giroud and Griezman too

Stupid Dish signal went out... for a drizzle. Fortunately, I was prepared for this WC eventuality and got Peacock as a backup.

Ahh, bonne matin Harley, comment ça va?

And yeah, one on one it's a lot more likely Poland gets the shocking win, but if the French service in is anything like we've seen so far in these first few minutes, you just never know

bien. et tu?

If Giroud continues his run, he has that on goal.

Dembele needed to take that on the half volley.

Peacock got the Telemundo feed to avoid associating with Fox's shiat narration.

And only $5.99 (if you don't mind the Spanish commentary). I remember a previous WC getting the YouTube TV trial and putting a crapton of reminders to cancel the second the WC ended because YTTV was like 50 bucks a month or so.

Leader for the golden gloves by far right now.

With the number of saves by Post and Bar I've been wondering whether these goals are a couple of inches smaller than regulation.

I used to have that problem until my doctor gave me antibiotics.

30 points worth of Scrabble tiles right there, no wonder they don't allow proper names.

maybe they can be repurposed after the tournament as festivus poles.  the airing of grievances has sure started early

"Matty Cash" is a Nashville busker's name.

How does Poland not put one of those three shots in the back of the net?
 
2022-12-04 10:38:44 AM  
double thigh save
