OPENING CEREMONY ....  Short and to the point, just the way I like it.
ROBBIE WILLIAMS ...  Jumped up little flog, but we already knew that.
AIDA GARIFULLINA .... Gorgeous, voice of an angel.
VLADMIR PUTIN ... War criminal but kept it short and to the point. Kudos.
SAUDI ARABIA ... Pathetic light weight fluff.
RUSSIA ... solid but 5-0 was more a reflection of how weak the Saudis were.
SPAIN v PORTUGAL ... one of the finest World Cup matches I have ever seen.
SPAIN .... Fabulous effort to come from behind to take the lead, let down by their goal keeper. 
PORTUGAL ...obviously Ronaldo dependent but stuck to their guns and held the line against top class opposition
RONALDO ... A privileged to watch this man play.  Sublime skill.  Indomitable will.  
MARTIN TYLER ... one of the greatest sports commentators in my lifetime
LUCY ... Beautiful and sensible.  How did that happen ?  Les would be proud.
FOSTER ... SBS seems to have worked out how to measure Craig.  A little goes a long way, too much can be a turn off, but so far :thumbup:
OPTUS ... f**king hopeless

Good Luck 'roos.  Give it your best shot.  That's all we ever want.

Going pretty well after half an hour carioca. They aren't intimidated by the French.

Seem to be PT, I think the French are playing a few newbies, some strength on their bench , confidence is what we need but we're doing well.

France is a very good football nation and they are better than us but such is the nature of football that a less talented team can deny better teams victory through strong application and discipline... but to win these kind of matches we need goals and we just lack the means of scoring them.  Our chance came from a penalty, a blatant hand ball, and if it didn't then it was hard to see how we were going to score.  

On the other hand France opened with an array of shots on goal that Matt Ryan neutralized.  The natural order of things would see France win 3-0.  Australia has done very well to go down 1-2 and only because of a debatable penalty.  

The whole VAR system is problematic when it comes to these sort of calls which aren't cut and dried regardless of how many angles you have.  All bias aside I don't think there was enough evidence in any of the replays to rule that the ref had made a blatant error by not blowing his whistle.  That is what these video assist systems should be used for - Identifying the blatant error.

If we couldn't take a point from this match we had to keep the goal difference to a minimum because it could be critical who goes through especially if the French beat up on Peru and Denmark.

When I was a champion defender in the under 10sClap, I was told not to attempt a tackle from the side when in the penalty area unless you were sure you could hit the ball first.

God it was boring. How boring? So boring I was often switching over to the rugby union for a bit of excitement.Tongue

But since that's the only game that's going to be played at a reasonable hour, that's the last of the WC for me. Unless I've made a mistake on the times.

If Mexico happens to pull this off, surely they will thank Trump!
In reference to every post in the Trump thread ... "There may have been a tiny bit of license taken there" ... Ok, Thanks for the "heads up" PT!

Wow! ... and if it were not for the Donald, they wouldn't have been able to even field a side ... half of that team would have been illegals living in California, MS-13 members, taking jobs from honest Italian Americans ... the Mexican Football Federation should start building that wall themselves ... before the 2026 World Cup!

You gotta hand it to the Great Man, he's done it again ... "It will be a Great World Cup!".

I worked hard on this - Trump on 2026 World Cup bid

President Donald Trump says he worked hard on the effort to bring the 2026 FIFA World Cup to North America and thanked Robert Kraft, owner of the NFL's New England Patriots and Major League Soccer's New England Revolution.
Trump signed letters to FIFA president Gianni Infantino expressing confidence that FIFA World Cup delegations and fans would be welcomed for the tournament. Although of no legal force, the letters were used in lobbying by the U.S. Soccer Federation as the North American bid competed against Morocco's. The North American bid won 134-65 in voting by FIFA members in Moscow on Wednesday.

Thank you for all of the compliments on getting the World Cup to come to the U.S.A., Mexico and Canada. I worked hard on this, along with a Great Team of talented people. We never fail, and it will be a great World Cup! A special thanks to Bob Kraft for excellent advice.

You'd have to be a genius to beat a Morocco bid.Clap

Good to see hardly anybody interested in bidding for WC.
