  1. 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

    At least Russia has some sort of soccer culture with their national team having done well in tourneys before(granted that was back when they were the USSR) and have club teams in the big Euro competitions. Qatar has zip as far as I'm aware and I would not be surprised if they buy themselves a team like they do with track and field athletes. I'm also pissed beyond belief about the Winter WC. One of my father's biggest soccer heroes was a Soviet goalkeeper. As a goalkeeper himself he cherishes the time Lev Yashin came to my birth country with, I want to say Dynamo Moscow rather than the USSR team but it could have been the national team as well. It was the only time he willingly sat behind the goal instead of near the middle of the field.

    Evidently the workers at Fiat are unenthused about Ronaldo getting paid so much. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2785499-fiat-workers-to-strike-following-cristiano-ronaldos-transfer-to-juventus

    Oh good, another final I don't care for either team. The last Euro's were like that too. I believe England will be back, it's a young team and I read that they won the under 20 world cup and those kids will likely be in the team in four years as well.

    Can't say I'm upset in any way, shape, or form.

    Somehow I don't think Wimbledon is the main interest of sports fans in England at the moment, look at Center Court when Angelique Kerber was playing during England's quarter final match. https://www.besoccer.com/new/england-game-leaves-wimbledon-empty-463064

    God help me but I'm starting to believe that it is in fact coming home.

    I think I remember finals weekend being the same weekend as the Tour de France's first weekend. That combined with a big soccer tournament(Euro's and WC) nearing it's end every other year made for a busy weekend haha. eta, and there is usually a Formula One race as well.

    He's been like this for as long as I can remember. It's why I was elated when Germany did their thing in the 2014 World cup and still bitter that Brazil won Olympic gold that made him a hero. I've never had a problem with Brazil, Ronaldo and Romario were both fantastic players and so much fun to watch(especially Romario) but I just can't with Neymar. I just don't think he's as good as the hype and the flopping like he's Meryl Streep doesn't help that at all. Messi and as much, as I hate to say it, Christiano Ronaldo are as good as advertised.

    Thank you both!! That is a great commercial! eta, I can go all in on my Russia hate now Brazil(mostly Neymar) is out.

    And so, despite FIFA's best efforts to make things more global, is only Europe left... Great, fun game. May be the best of the tournament so far. I need to see this!

    All I wanted out of today is Uruguay out and I got my wish there. France-Brazil or France-Belgium, either match up looks great. Belgium has been very effective so far in this match and after the second goal Brazil looked a little lost. Everything seems to be going through Schwalbe McLayonthegroundface(though I do think he was fouled in the penalty area but at this point may just have his rep of laying on the ground dying working against him).

    It's funny, but I remember the loss against Germany in EURO '96. I do not recall them beating Spain(?) the previous round.
  13. 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

    Praise everything! England wins a penalty shoot out! I can barely remember the last time that happened.
  14. 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

    Sweden - Switzerland. I have nothing against either team so I'm just going to hope for a good game.
  15. 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

    My dad has been saying the same since the Spain game and he's usually pretty level headed. He's convinced Russia is going to win this thing and the thought of that makes me want to throw up because they are in no way shape or form the best team in the world.
