Re: World Cup 2026

Goodness, even Russia voted for the US. I can't figure out who's friends with who any more, it's like the abridged version of 1984 in here. Kudos to France, Italy, Brazil and the Benelux for supporting Morocco. I wonder if it will cost them now. Hopefully Canada and Mexico are getting along with the...

World Cup 2026

It's probably not going to happen, but I hope they give it to Morocco. They've already bid unsuccessfully four times and it would be nice to see it go to Africa again before it goes to North America for a fourth time. Looking at the US-Canada-Mexico bid it does rather look like Canada and Mexico wer...

Re: World Cup 2018

My predictions: I'm still going with Argentina to win it. I haven't really got a good reason for that other than it has to be someone who's won it before and they have Messi. He's the only player capable of conjuring up a goal whenever he feels like it, something that gets increasingly useful as the...

Re: World Cup 2018

The BBC's Australia World Cup preview is mainly about Aussie Rules.

I learnt more, considerably more, watching Peter Schmeichel on RT.

Re: World Cup 2018

So how do we think Korea will do then? I haven't been keeping up with the expectations in Korea. Losing at home to a non-qualifier Bosnia 3-1 in your send-off match is not ideal preparation. Results since Shin took over from Stielike don't show much sign for encouragement, apart maybe from a 2-1 win...

Re: 2018 K3 League

As far as I can see it's mostly just you, me, Paquebot and Eujin bumbling around this forum these days. I'm sure I read somewhere that the end of days would come when all four of us met in Goyang. However as long as Eujin doesn't appear riding a pale horse I think we may be OK, so count me in if yo...

Re: World Cup 2018

Group C is turning into a bit of lovefest. After the captains of Australia, Denmark and France lobbied to get Peruvian captain Paolo Guerrero reinstated when FIFA tried to ban him for taking cocaine, now the Danish National Choir has rewritten the words of the Danish national anthem to be about Peru...

Re: World Cup 2018

I got Colombia in the office sweepstake. Not the best result, but at least now I have some interest in the outcome of Group H. I want to tip Argentina to win it, possibly because I want to give them the kiss of death, but also because FIFA must be tired of UEFA teams winning all the time and with Me...

Re: 2018 K3 League

Do they have TV cameras at all the K3 games? Or are they doing a secret documentary on me and they are following me around the country, filming me picking my nose at different stadiums? Have you asked this cameraman about the 48-club? Chances are he might know some members and if he doesn't he migh...

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.
