  1. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    But they are the favourites to come out of that side now. Croatia did not excel against Denmark. Vegas will never put the odds on Sweden or Denmark. So England it is. There is no better chance than this.

    Ah yes cue the British tabs and their headlines. I'm sure there'll be something about meatballs and IKEA and vikings. It's... cold in Sweden, right?

    That's just sports hindsight, though. Japan had two great chances to win the game at the end of the match. Honda is a great free kicker and they had a set piece with almost no time left. Courtois caught it perfectly and sprung the counterattack. Japan knew the risks on that last play and were willing to take it. You can't fault them for that. They played to win and gave everything they had. True, they should've parked the bus at 2-0 but the Japanese have always had subpar goaltending and defending. The Swedish can park the bus for 30 minutes - Japan cannot. Why would Japan want a shootout? Kawashima is garbage, Courtois is excellent, and the Belgians are far more talented. I would've played that corner more conservatively, but it was a chance to win at the last moment and it the execution was just a critical failure. This current game is so dirty. Half time it's diving. The other half is reckless fouls.

    Nishino playing with absolute fire. Completely changes his lineup and benches Honda/Kagawa. Puts on Hasebe as super-sub. Good god did they not deserve to go through.

    It seems as though Mexico is giving Korea a lot of love for their thrashing of Germany. I say to hell with them. Had they done their job and beaten Sweden, Korea actually would've gone through with the 2 goals. It actually gives me a sour taste in my mouth that they're so happy about us when they played like crap.

  7. [Waivers] Alex Burrows

    I think he still has a chance to prove himself as an NHL player in this league. Might as well do it here in Vancouver, where he's a living folk hero. Nobody would expect him to be anywhere beyond the third or fourth line, but with those limited minutes I think he'll play very well.

    Which is why Martial wants out. Agreed, he has not been stellar this year. Can you say Giroud has been better? Dembele?
  9. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    France has the most extreme talent pool ever. And Deschamps goes with guys like Dembele and Giroud. He plays favourites so hard and his tactics are puzzling. Martial or Lacazette will never play for national team with that man in charge. I wonder why Keisuke Honda comes on as such a late sub. He has been a game-changer in both their games and only features for such a short time. Surely he can play more than that.

    Hooray now Korea just has to beat Germany 3-0 and Sweden loses to Mexico. EASY PEASY
  11. Albert Einstein Was Not A Fan Of Chinese People

    It's time to jump into this. Better late than never. It seems like the vast majority of people here are just ignoring his comments. Some are trying to knock it off as a 21th century SJW dig at a historical figure. Maybe, but what Einstein wrote is pretty damning. I don't understand why he's getting such a free pass. He's not only known for his scientific genius but also his social commentary. He spent of lot of time decrying racism while in USA. Nobody before has looked to Einstein and called him a "product of the times". What a stupid thing to say. Then bad people are a product of the times. If I commit a crime, I'm just a product of the times. He wrote it. He wrote some awful stuff about Chinese people. Everyone can move on from this, but at the very least have the balls to condemn what he said.

    It's okay, everyone. Korea can beat those puny Germans and then it's on to greener pastures. We just need to bribe the refs some more cash this time.
  13. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    South Korea. My prediction is three losses but two goals from Son.
  14. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    All you non-qualifiers get outta here. Wallow in group L. Including you clumsy Scots. I love you.
  15. John Ashbridge passes away

    I thought Ashbridge was the current guy up to this point.
