    Argentina turned it on in the second half today. Looking good.

    Falcaius was swapping between Greece v Argentina and Nigeria v South Korea, but mostly watching the latter. He does not know how the hell Yakubu missed that open goal.

    On a side note, Falcarius hopes SolitaryWalker's obsession with dear kimmy dies down a bit. Obviously, it is either because of the six inch platform shoes or classic bouffant hairstyle, either way it is not exactly healthy seeing a young man get flustered over a geriatric.

    Agreed.

    I'd even dared to say that it is because they cheated that they lost this way somehow. Actually, it's not a kind of poetic justice, it's rather than the French honor was hit, and this way, our national team lost support from France months ago. The majority of French population was in favour of another match against Ireland, a kind of replay, can you imagine that?

    Even when the world cup began, there were nobody more despised in French medias than the members of our so-called French football team.

    Always, during these weeks, we called them cheaters, especially in France. It may sound weird for outsiders, but for Frenchmen it's important. The average Frenchmen did not recognize themselves in their national team: it was a conflict of values. Of course, no wonder "our" team members were demoralized from the start, since they had almost no real popular support in France.

    So they lost, and they lost the most ridiculous way, torn up by childish bickerings, and over the vast amount of money those spoiled brats were making. Even our government officials said they were the shame of the nation, not because of their (predictable) results, but because of their puerile attitude. Truth is, the majority of people in France wished this defeat, and even hoped South Africa could qualify with a large score.
    Now, the crowd in France is appeased.

    Don't wonder why. Such things happen in France and in France only.

    That's a fascinating dynamic. I almost feel for the players, because it was not within their power to call for a replay. I don't know what the sentiment among the team was. Would they have volunteered to replay?

    No, the majority did not want to replay, and that's why they were despised after displaying such a lame and unfair attitude. The truth is that they couldn't, since FIFA was first to blame. But was was shocking is that most of them never expressed the slightest regret.

    After that, well, there have been a kind of divorce between them and the French popular crowds who did not recognize themselves in the values they displayed.

    Who said I supported Italy? I said they are favorites as in likely candidates to win. As in they have good chances. IMO of course.

    That is not what you meant. You said Argentina was one of your favorites but it is highly unlikely to win the tournament which means that the term 'favorite' means a team that you personally favor rather than a team that in your objective assessment is the most likely to win. I ask again, why would you favor Italy?

    No worries, Portugal may still beat North Korea by a wide margin. The Portuguese just have to dive and let Ronaldo take the free kicks, he is very good at long-range shooting. Furthermore, he dives with impunity more than the entire Italian squad could hope to. Obviously I still have not given up on the vision of North Korea losing by 10 goals.
    They only lost by 7 goals, so IN YO' FACE! there.

    And S. Korea advances!!!!

    GOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAL! (Actually 2)

    I so wish I had been able to watch the game in a thunderously crowded auditorium with other crazy fans.
