Soccer games??

This is the place for thoughts that you want to share about nearly anything that comes to mind. Politics is ok as well. All notions and opinions are the view of the poster and not this site. Just remain civil in whatever you wish to express.

There must be some soccer games going on in Russia, there are little blurbs on the back
page of the sports section of local newspaper about teams from a few countries.

England will play Croatia in the semi-final on Wednesday night on ITV


That's after 20 million watched England get by Sweden.

Croatia?

How many professional soccer players do you think there are from Croatia anyway? Must be all of them on the team. How hard could beating them be? Wonder if they have a professional baseball team? Or real football team?

Sorry Duncan... I know this is important stuff in countries not the US. :rebel:

Don't be sorry, it is the FIFA World Cup for Football ( Soccer to you ) which is a game for faggots...........I don't watch it and never have.

As to players from countries like Croatia - most of them play in other countries which is where they develop their talents :roll:

A lot of them are black and pretty well all of them are overpaid by at least 100%.

This is of course my opinion and no Rugby Balls were hurt in it's creation :cool: :cool: :cool: :ENG:

I was kidding of course. There are some soccer fans in the US, we actually have a professional
soccer league here in the US with 23 teams, there is a pro team near here, the Seattle Sounders FC.
I haven't seen a game since my kids played in grade school.

Lots of kids play soccer now in the US. My grandchildren have started out in the toddler league. When I was a kid I thought it was something a PE teacher thought up to get through a gym class.

Those kids who made it out of the cave have my applause and respect. The World grown up semi match champs of the recent games don't. Talk about bad sportsmanship in a game that kids play. They should take up professional wrestling where trash talking is all part of the buildup to the next match to sell tickets.

The national broadcaster, HRT, started its post-match programme with presenters and studio guests jumping around and chanting, while Robert Prosinecki, a member of Croatia’s bronze-winning side in 1998, said: “We murdered the English in the second half!” Josko Jelicic, Croatia’s self-styled answer to Gary Lineker, added: “They [England] have nothing to cry about – they were knocked out by the future world champions. We played a mature game, the English were unbelievably inferior.”

The Vecernji list newspaper went with the headline “We knocked the English down, Croatia are in the World Cup final!” with Zeljko Jankovic writing how Croatia and France will now decide “who plays the best football on the planet at the moment”. It turned out to be rhetorical as he answered it himself by adding: “It’s Croatia, don’t even doubt that!”

Vecernji’s website devoted an unusual amount of space to gloating over the fate of the losing team, with headlines such as “Football’s not coming home”, “The arrogance hit them back”, “The English are sore losers” and even published a photo gallery titled “Look how the English cry after losing to Croatia” with pictures of downbeat players and fans.
