Re: Suwon Peace Queen Cup

So no actually useful information then Bluewings? As I was hoping you'd be the one to know.

Suwon Peace Queen Cup

Does anyone know anything about the Suwon Peace Queen's Cup? All games in group A are being played in Suwon World Cup Stadium from the looks of wikipedia. Does anyone know if the tickets will be free? Will I be highly conspicuous if I go, because I'll be the only person there? Perhaps more important...

Re: North Korea June 22nd

You'd have thought the North Korean pram was running low on toys by now. I wonder how they keep it up. On the one hand you've got the KCNA lauding the protestors for standing up against outside influence and on the other you've got the DPRKFA saying its too dangerous to play in Seoul because of the ...

Re: Euro 2008

I never thought I'd say this about a Hiddink coached team, but I feel the Russians were tactically outplayed by the Spanish. The Russian back four were playing some sort of zonal system (I wouldn't call it a zonal marking system) and there was too much space between them and the midfield. Time and a...

Re: Euro 2008

This was pretty funny if anyone missed it. Panucci playing van Nistelrooy onside whilst lying prostrate behind the goal.

Re: Euro 2008

Are you watching all the late games nzfooty? The must start around 6.45 am in New Zealand. So it's an early rise rather than a late night? Are they showing games at the Holy Grail or is the whole thing passing by rather unnoticed in Christchurch? It reminds me of watching all the games in the last W...

Re: Euro 2008

I watched the Austria game last night (which is part of the reason why I'm struggling to get any work done today). It was amusing to see that after only 3 minutes the Austrians had already begun their exit from the tournament. I don't think there can be any complaints about the penalty. The Austrian...

Re: Euro 2008

Yes, I thought the Czechs were a bit lucky too. The Swiss put them under a bit of pressure, especially after the goal, and had a decent shout for a penalty or two.

The Czechs looked at least a Nedved short of a decent team. Not the team they were four years ago.

Re: North Korea June 22nd

The North have had some crowd trouble in the past, particularly noteworthy being the big Axis of Evil derby against Iran a few years back, but they don't usually take that many away with them. Nevermind "you must have come in a taxi", what about "you must have come in a submarine"?

Re: North Korea June 22nd

Is it fair to say that if the DPRK get a point against Jordan next weekend, then both South Korea and North Korea go through? Even if ROK lose to Turkmenistan and then lose to DPRK (and Jordan beat Turkmenistan) their head to head with Jordan puts them through. No? This would set up a happy-clappy a...

Re: South Korea vs Jordan

I agree with mustoe02. The movement up front for the Koreans was very poor and Park Ji-sung was just as guilty as the rest of them. With the Jordanians playing a 5-4-1 that occassionally looked more like a 6-3-1, you need some movement and foresight up front rather than the lazy kick-around attitude...

Re: Euro 2008

Talking of teams doing badly as hosts, I always thought that Spain's effort in 1982 was particularly exemplary. Drawing with Honduras and losing to Northern Ireland. Oh dear.

Re: Euro 2008

I'm going to have to go for Germany. If Austria got an easy group then Germany got an even easier group and they'll probably end up playing Portugal and the Czechs to get to the final. They've got a young team that came of age in 2006 and they're basically playing at home. Plus they spanked both the...

South Korea vs Jordan

I'm predicting that the Jordanians are going to try to play very tight, getting everyone behind the ball (I've never seen them play before). Even if they go a goal or two behind I suspect they won't change it too much. I doubt the Koreans will concede a goal but on their recent form I doubt there'll...

Re: Korea v Poland (WC2002) had 5K+ empty seats?

I hate FIFA too. The World Cup in 2002 was more like a trade convention than a football tournament. You could buy T-shirts with "FIFA" on them but you couldn't buy national team replica shirts for love nor money. I spent a day wandering around Niigata trying to find some national team gear...
