  1. BRILLIANT SOUTH KOREA! That's what the World Cup is all about! A win for the ages for the mighty South Korea and their fantastic captain Heung-Min Son! Germany didn't deserve to go through, such a poor team- the worst German team ever, according to most pundits. It's the first time they've been knocked out of the World Cup in the group stages- and they've been at every single one all the back to 1938! Incredible stuff!
  2. I'm going for France. They have the best squad by far in my opinion, including the imperiously brilliant Antoine Griezmann, don't seem to have any discernible weaknesses and performed very well in the 2016 European Championships, getting to the final and just being edged out by Portugal. I think Portugal could yet go far in this World Cup too, and Spain are also live contenders. I personally believe the two bookmakers' favourites for the competition, Brazil and Germany, are both a little overrated.
  3. Not really true- he sustained a bad knee injury at the end of the 2016/17 season but then recovered so quickly from it that scientists have asked to inspect his knee for medical research! Hardly 'struggling'! Story here: https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/manchester-united-news-zlatan-ibrahimovic-transfer-injury-mino-raiola-a7722311.html
  4. Let the speculation begin! Why has TBBT dropped so low this week?
  5. A Sheldon VS Leonard battle of wits never fails to disappoint, and ten years down the line, they're still funny. I thought this plot was very well written and the arguments over possessions allowed the show to bring back many a running gag- the apartment flag, the sword, the Amy & Penny picture etc etc. The toga flag scene was priceless ("Easy peasy oh so breezy" ). The resolution was a bit forced and rushed but it didn't ruin the plot for me. We always knew that Leonard and Sheldon were going to make up and this was just a quick way of doing it. The Raj/Howard/Bernadette/Stuart B-Plo
  6. You could tell that after about 70 minutes in the Bayern game, Ozil had just given up. He's always touted as this amazing playmaker but as you say, he never turns up for Arsenal when it really matters. I think it's a mystery why none of Walcott, Giroud and Welbeck got a run out. Maybe Wenger was saving them for the FA Cup game at Sutton United I don't think Sanchez and Giroud work well together. Giroud is much better as an impact sub who, when deployed effectively, is a real Plan B option for Arsenal in games where their system isn't working. Giroud should be their go-to player when they
  7. Who have you heard say that? All I've heard since the vote is bitter Remainers moaning that the referendum didn't go the way they wanted it to. Each person had their own individual vote. Therefore it was "persons" (as you describe them) rather than the "people" who decided this referendum. We've had three months of crap from Remain politicians who have consistently lied to us all about what would happen in Brexit. Those people haven't "signed up to repeat the vote" they have signed a petition calling for the law to be changed in the future. A petition which is meaningless, bitter
  8. If Germany left the EU then there probably would be no EU, so your referendum wouldn't just be on Germany's future in the EU, it would be whether to have the EU or not at all. Personally, I'm ecstatic about the result. It's a great day for Britain and a new dawn for our country. Plus our hated Prime Minister has resigned! It's the best day in British politics for decades.
  9. Seems to have gone a bit dead on this thread!
  10. Any thoughts, Tonstar? Have you done a match report? I thought England were pretty atrocious. But we're through and that's the main thing. Roy Hodgson's position as England coach looking increasing precarious as this tournament progresses.
  11. Maybe not! That's the trouble with doing match reports as you go I suppose! Ronaldo had an absolute shocker tonight. Worst game he's had in years. He had a number of chances- not half-chances, but real, clear-cut, scoreable chances- and he messed up the lot of them. The penalty miss was the most notable lowlight of a terrible evening for Cristiano. Doesn't make Zlatan look so bad now, does it? I don't think that's ignorance or arrogance to want to take your own aww penalty kick. Many players have bad runs where they don't score penalties but when you look at the players Port
  12. The Daily Star reports that after scoring the winning goal against Wales, England striker Daniel Sturridge has displaced Harry Kane and will now start as England's first choice striker. This news also reported by The Guardian, which also has pictures of the violence between Croatia fans yesterday.
  13. A lot of the pundits were suggesting that Spain only really got out of second gear in that game for about 10 to 15 minutes, but that it was more than enough to destroy Turkey, and they said that most of the big teams in this tournament would struggle against Spain if they could keep that level up for the full 90 minutes, as they have done in 2008 and 2012. We saw flashes of a great Spain team yesterday.
