Bad effort.

Advantage to the blue and whites.

Argentina on the verge...

What a stupid way to end a semi-final.

Poor Cillessen. He's going to be torn apart.
post #1102 of 1211

Wow, he almost stopped the last goal. Too bad for Holland.

 

One co-worker is pissed, but the majority are happy.

Yeah, Ned played better but I wanted to see a Eur vs S Am final.

I'm sick

I wanted to see a Brazil v's Arg 3rd and 4th place play off (that could have been a bloodbath)

 

Not sure what Van Haal was thinking having used Krul in the last game so effectively. Cillessen has never saved a penalty in his life! (apparently that's true) and to be honest, he could, no, he should, have stopped two of those, they weren't a great set. It's bound to be asked afterwards. If it ain't broke, don't fix it

 

For students of history though, World Cups have quite a tradition of the best team failing to win

This should be a lesson to the other teams that when you let it go to pks anything can happen.. It seems to me nobody learns.. It is never a good idea especially when you believe you are better for sure.. See ya Dutch!

Now it's time for the Germans to run a muck, and bring the Argentinians back to reality!

I'm calling a 3-1 German win already

So's one of my co-workers, and his sympathizers.

 

It sucks for a game to end this way, especially with such great playing from both sides.

 

But, I have more Argentinian (some are interns) co-workers, that are feeling really good right now, and possibly all of them are going out to get drunk for whatever reason. :beer:

Is anyone gonna watch Ned vs Brazil? I feel no compunction to.

Germany seems to win a WC every 25-30 years though so seems like they're destined. Didn't they have the least travel time? Plus their custom built complex? And more rest time plus an opponent that just went to PKs.

Now for Men in Blazers! It'll be better than the game.

I will because it is still WC soccer.. Granted it might be a dud because I don't think either team gives a ***t right now.. But maybe I'll be surprised?

I heard that they just switch them on and off and that the German team are on the verge of being exposed as robotic frauds in the biggest shock since it was revealed that America didn't land on the moon

I've never actually seen this many conspiracies enunciated in one sentence before.

I don't see any conspiracy theories here.. Sounds right on to me..
post #1113 of 1211

Okay.

 

Back on topic, my company tally reveals that Germany is favored to win, but not by much.

 

A few ardent fans still feel that Argentina has a chance of winning.

post #1114 of 1211
Yes, the this has been discussed before and after watching the Germans dismantle everyone I wouldn't be surprised that they are robots... Especially that muller guy!

Argentina will not get away with some of the things I saw against the Germans.. I feel like they need to score early to have a chance.. Remember the Germans don't get tired and if their backs play the way they have against France and Brazil good night early!
post #1115 of 1211
Ron vlaar although he missed a penalty was the man of the match for me. That guy did everything right won any header and almost every duel.
post #1116 of 1211
I bet Argentina will be watching that Ghana game tape. Algeria too.

I think Germany will win (going out on a limb, eh?) but can't seem to come up with a score in my mind's eye. Probably 3-1. Maybe 2-0.

I'll record the consolation match and watch on a rainy day.
