Re: World Cup 2018

I'm busy creating my own private reality here, but riddle me this. In 1982 Austria qualified from their group ahead of Algeria on goal difference. They had a goal difference of +2, Algeria had only +0. This came about because Germany beat Austria in the final group match 1-0 and everyone was outrage...

Re: Europe general 2017/18

Juventus win their seventh title in a row. Bayern win their sixth. PSG are back to winning, their fifth in six years. Barcelona very honourably decided not to go unbeaten through their season, resting Messi and losing 5-4 to Levante after the title was already won. I think we have doubles in all fou...

Re: How the Bundesliga puts the Premier League to shame

Son Heung-min's old youth club Hamburg were relegated from the Bundesliga for the first time ever, the only surviving team that had never played outside the German top tier. A number of fans were not happy. https://ichef.bbci.co.uk/onesport/cps/800/cpsprodpb/7FBD/production/_101310723_hamburg_reuter...

Re: 2018 AFC Champions League

Jeonbuk rather embarrassed themselves losing 3-2 in Thailand, but at least they got two away goals. Former Ulsan and Sangju player Yoo Jun-soo set up Buriram's first.

The all-Korea first leg finished 1-0 to Ulsan. The return leg is Tuesday in Suwon.

Now we need to get Martyrs_Forever to vote. Surely the Reverend Choi has lifted the World Cup at some point in his illustrious career?

Re: Favourite World Cup moments of all time

I was hoping i might get at least 5 votes. Paquebot, you can vote for "something else" if you're going with 1994.

Re: 2018 K League 1

The table has a far more expected look about it now after 12 matches each. Jeonbuk have already opened up a 10 point lead at the top. Gyeongnam are still hanging on but Pohang have vanished without a trace. Sangju are still in the top half though and Seoul are only just beginning their climb out of ...

Re: Favourite World Cup moments of all time

I went for Cameroon in 1990. Roger Milla coming out of retirement at age 38, scoring 4 goals in the tournament, winning the penalty and setting up the second goal against England and that dance at the corner flag were all just magical. It was great when they beat Argentina in the opening match, but ...

Favourite World Cup moments of all time

Still counting down the days to the World Cup and since the last post was a bit negative I thought we should have a poll about the best World Cup moments of all time.

Re: World Cup 2018

Neuer says he will be ready for the World Cup. If they don't pick him they can always fall back on Barcelona's starting keeper. There was a worry about Jerome Boateng after he went off the other night against Real Madrid but now they're saying he should be OK. And Zlatan, apparently he has "dec...

Re: World Cup 2018

Yes, it's fair to say Germany are the most consistent threat, although it's tough to put my finger on why. They have the largest population in Western Europe, so they have the most people to pick from, but it's not like a list of the world's greatest players is dominated by Germans. Probably their m...

Re: World Cup 2018

I wonder what happens to the office sweepstake if any of the teams pull out. I can't remember that ever being a worry prior to the tournament before (although I remember thinking England should pull out in 1998). Putin's not going to be happy if Russia slip out meekly like they did in the hockey at ...

With the World Cup in Russia shaping up to be one of the most controversial in a long time, I have delved into the extensive ROKfootball archives to bring you some of the most outrageous episodes from World Cup history. From corruption to bribery, to match-fixing, bad referees, fights, boycotts, int...

Re: 2018 AFC Champions League

Suwon glide through to the knockout stage by winning 1-0 at Kashima courtesy of a Dejan goal. Sydney couldn't beat Shanghai Shenua at home anyway, so even if Suwon had lost they would still have qualified. As pointed out at the top of this thread, the order of the group was exactly the same as it wa...

The big lad pictured above came on after 35 minutes when Euijeonbu had just lost their fifth goal. In terms of mobility and getting down for shots, how did he compare with the original Michelin Man, Lee Woon-jae? https://media.gettyimages.com/photos/woon-jae-lee-03032010-cote-divoire-coree-du-sud-m...
