    I don't understand offsides that close in though. Hockey has a blue line for that nonsense.
    It actually wasn't off. They showed it in the half time report and we were even if not on side.

    I saw one tiny (work PC) replay and they didn't make a big deal of it, so I just assumed he was barely offsides. But it was an English feed. Speaking of the English...

    That may be funny, but now we have more pertinent events to worry about.

    If the quote Pure Mercury chooses is short enough, would you add another Ayn Rand quote of my choice?

    His howler in the first game is an important reason why England did not win the group. If England won the opener against the U.S by 1 goal to 0, they may well have had the momentum to beat Algeria by the same margin.

    That's true, my comment implied no racial derogations, however, the Italian style of play seems profoundly different from that of their Western counterparts. They are much more defensive and more inclined to attempt to win by illicit means. Yet, according to you, FDG, the Italian culture does not approve of cheating, what on earth is going on here? Is there anything about the Italian general culture or the Italian soccer culture that promotes such behavior? If the answer is no, why is such behavior much more common among Italian players than among the Spaniards, the English or the Germans?

    Who the fuck are you again?


    I have no preference for Argentina whatsoever. I don't know if it's a misuse of the word favorite, but from my understanding even in english (like in portuguese, my mother tongue) it can both mean positive bias towards someone and the likeliest candidate to win, when talking about any kind of sport.

    I said Argentina are one of the most likely to win, in theory, but as history shows,playing "eloquently" in these competitions doesn't ensure you'll win in the end (as evidence by a lot of defensive teams winning the big competitions these days).

    I don't favor Italy. What I meant was that Italy, due to be defensive and very experienced, are more likely to win a big competition like this one in this day and age.
