Don't get what people see in England.

What about them makes people other than the English want them to win?  No character, no personality, no skill, no flair, no imagination...nothing.

What Casillas did, I see alotta keepers do in that situation - the only option is to drive low at the far post/or across the goal which not easy or blast high and hard near post - also difficult.

ok cool - it wasn't clear to me that he was reacting to the call - he didn't seem to appeal much to the ref (it didn't seem that way) - it looked like he was beating the turf in general frustration.

Wha bout Cassano was ballin' in the first half..

Iniesta like he find back his form too jed...damn!! He had to be carrying a slight injury (or fatigue) toward the end of the season with Barca because the Iniesta from yesterday is the Iniesta I know...that was missing for Barca toward the end of this past season.

Whoever defending Balotelli miss yesterday just feelin' sorry for him.  He do sh*t - full stop.  No way you supposed to let the defender come back on yuh on that play...Have a shot at goal, try to square it (Cassano was in the middle)... do something - if it eh come off, ah well... it happens - it was not a sure goal....but it was a good opportunity to force casillas into a save and he did crap...full stop.

That said, he was ok throughout the rest of the game - his yellow was harsh in my opinion, and I do think he's a target...but the nature of that miss was not really excusable.

p.s. what's the fuss about him beating up the turf... I don't see that as being the ref's business... That was not the first time I see a player beat the turf in frustration.

That's wasn't Brazil A squad though, was it?

Brazil Olympic Team

Most! Marcello, Hulk, Thiago Silva, David Luis, Sandro & jefferson are over the age

Tiago Silva, David Luis and Jefferson did not play against Argentina... Is Sandro considered over-age- he just turned 23 this year...what's the cut off?

The relationship between player confidence and a coach's "trust" ain't no small thing. Happy fuh de man.  :beermug:

Yup for real!

Yuh get a shot, yuh play well, coaches and teammates large yuh up, and next thing you are the go-to player from then on... Injured man now have to fight for his spot back...

Only thing is it only takes one or two off-days to reverse it all....

Taffarel was very good... kicking technique was exquisite.  Toward the end of his career he had one or two instances where he would get caught in no-man's land but to say he was error prone is harsh for me.  In both WC '90 and '94 he was very solid....Also at the time he broke into the Serie A I believe he was one of the first, if not the first int'l goalkeeper to play in the Serie A....remember dem days had lots of restrictions on int'l players... He is also renowned to be a ridiculous pk stopper at the youth levels - def a Brazilian keeper of legendary status domestically. 

Two things you reminded me here: I clean forget the man was Brazil's No.1 in Italy '90 and yes, he was solid in that tournament and I also forgot that he was (probably) the first international GK to play in Italy, which further lends itself to my point that he was no mere shithong.   I was just coming to remind dinho of his heroics, too, in '98 when he practically put the dutch to sleep in the semifinal PK shoot out so one can say that he really did more than his part to get them to the final.  I think dinho, yuh would make for a rel tough GK coach because even Barthez, to me, wasn't as bad as his critics made him out to be.  I do believe he did get a free ride when he was awarded the best GK in France '98, an award that shoulda been pre-delivered to Chilavert that year but as eccentric and crazy as Barthez was, (probably affecting his decision-making at times) he was an exceptional shot-stopper with agility and reflexes to burn.  Come to think of it.....I doh even think Barthez shoulda even be France's No.1 in that WC anyway.....Bernard Lama, I find was the better of the two.....but I digress...     

Barthez distribution was ridiculous

My team got a good ass whooping.. This coach gotta go though. No team in the world can run wid brazil. USA suppose to play a defensive game and look for the counter attack... bad coaching .... was a decent game ... also this could have should have .....please , 4-1 is the final socre ....

war

I have to disagree with you, this Coach has to stay heck we kept Bradley for how long again? The match last night the US had chances to punish brasil and they snuffed the majority of them. A shot that  Donovan normally makes he snuffed in front of goal no less. Yes i understand the tactic of counter attack but template that Klinsman is trying build is the one simmilar to the German team that wowed everyone in 2006 in Germany. This brasilian back line had lapses and were caught open but the US back line got caught ball watching or not picking up the trailing man on top. You can only do so much as a coach but i think the American workhorse ethic already enbeded in this team and Klinsman philosophy will continue to yield more results. We still have 2 more years  till the USA goes to Brazil for 2014 and by then i anticipate a much stronger team than what you saw last night. I have to say though I really like Bradley's game and passing. He has improved alot.

Remember that Brazil side is largely an U-23 squad.  Only Marcelo (24), Hulk (25) and Thiago Silva (27) are over 23 years old, and quite a few are still in their teens... US effectively lost to a Brazil youth team.

Allyuh does real gobble up soundbites jed....real skilful?

That US left back from last night is a standard left back in the modern game...He wasn't special.  He just did his job.

He might be very good, but last night's game to me he was just normal - Klinnsman rate up de man, Darke and Twellman exploit the soundbite and now allyuh just gobbling it up lol ... Wha he do that was so special? what real skill did he show? Do you know that he is older than Marcelo? (Brazil's left back)... Who was the more special left back last night?   


Shake he maker and made ah great pass to assist the lone US goal.

On the goal, the Bradley pass was sweet- Fabian cross was normal....

but yeah boy ah forget...that shake in the 2nd half was wicked lololol...

Hear d real scene...

Let the gays Marry legally...go into the district office/court house/vegas wherever and get the paperwork done. Allow them same rights legally and let them be happy.

But if they want to go to a church/mosque or other religious institution it is up to the priest/rabbi/pastor/imam/pundit etc...to do it and give his blessing.

If the "Holy Authority" don't do it and you can't have your ceremony ...say ok and press and go to a "denomination" that will welcome you with open arms and accept your same sex union as marriage.

That is the simplest and easiest way for everybody to be happy.

But what go happen is...the rejected gay couple go turn around "pun intended" and sue the damn church for discrimination.

There is no winner here...somebody have to dig a horrors and feel the hurt...but it ent sunshine and rainbow time just yet. Even though they looking at the forecast and the weatherman saying good weather on the horizon.

Nah Damian - I think that's a misconception.  Gays seeking marriage and marital rights are not fighting for acceptance by any church and are not trying to force any particular religious institution to bless their marriage (at least not that I'm aware of) ...

« on: May 25, 2012, 01:00:57 PM »
hmmm I dunno.

I think Penalties are 100% fair by definition.  Each team gets 5 tries - no advantage given to either team. PKs might be harsh, but they fair.  The thing about it is, any side could win a PK shootout - people only find it seemingly unfair when their opinion of the better side doh win.

What more fair? 

Yuh play all over a side that park the bus, and they score one fluke goal in regulation and yuh loss...

or

Yuh play all over a side that park the bus, score end up in a draw, match go to PKs and yuh loss...

or

Yuh play all over a side that park the bus, score end up in a draw, match to to PKs and yuh win...

Look at it like that and in my opinion the end result is what determines the perception of fairness - PKs or no PKs.

That points scene sounding like potential for real controversy!

Teams that "play for penalities" usually do so because they have to - based on their quality or the matchups they usually have no choice but to play cautiously to get a result - and most times the "better" team still wins. This Chelsea run (or Greece's run in the Euros '04) was an anomaly.  On another day, Barca woulda taken their chances and Chelsea woulda lost soundly, and we wouldn't even be having the conversation.

In a purely neutral scenario, yeah it nice to see the more open positive side get rewarded with victory, but lewwe doh pretend that it doh be equally nice and entertaining to see David hold on and scratch and claw to muster up a spirited victory over Goliath... Sometimes yuh hadda just accept that a weaker side with less quality will adopt a pragmatic approach to a game, and only sometimes it will work - if it means PKs then so be it.  It hard to watch "big sides" play "negative" football but in the end teams hadda give themselves the best chance they could to win or get a result - yuh can't punish a team for that.

ahhh ok - the purpose of sperm is to fertilize an egg - I can agree with that (as would most I imagine).  That's different from your first position - very different. 

As for your point about pleasure and procreation not being mutually exclusive - that is in part along the same lines that I was thinking..which is why I dunno how you come up with what is the "original" purpose of sexual activity...remember is "original" you say eh - I not saying yuh wrong (because frankly I don't know)- I just dunno how you decide that for everybody.

Your point eh that radical...I hear what you're saying but these issues real complex - more complex than alotta people realize on a casual day to day...I not sure we could sum up what you trying to sum up in one swoop which is why I engaged you in this back and forth  :beermug:
