Great, Australia is playing really well against Ghana, score a goal, and then our star striker gets a red card and gives away a penalty for a handball that was completely accidental. That's our second red card in two games, and to our two best players. What a disastrous world cup... a-hard-days-night-paul-1


 

Tell me about it!! Actually I don't have high hopes for Mexico.. but Germany losing after wiining 4-0??? give me a break!!!!!

 

This World Cup is just blue-meanie

It just goes to show that absolutely ANYTHING can happen. There are only two ways for us to get to the next round now.

1. Germany beats Ghana 2-0, we beat Serbia 3-0 (or some variation of that)

2. Ghana beats Germany by any score, we beat Serbia by any score

 

The second one looks more likely, and it doesn't look likely at all.

 

Actually, didn't Mexico beat France 2-0? All they need is a draw against Uruguay, and they're guaranteed a spot in the next round.

I think last time Australia played Mexico we won 3-1, ahaha. blue-meanie

So...Germany, eh?  I'd venture to say they look almost unstoppable.

I thought Spain were a little unconvincing tonight.  They've both had a hiccup or two, but Germany's been guns blazing.

I feel dirty praising them.  I'm supposed to hate ze German fussball bund.

Spain won?! I noticed everytime I would cheer for a team, they were eliminated by the next round (Italy, England, Argentina, Germany, Netherlands). Nice kick from Netherlands in the finals! The one to the guys chest!

Actually Mick was the kiss of death for all the teams he supported. None of them won.

Too bad, you were right.

But we showed Uruguay how Germans can handle a lost battle. Thomas Muller is just fantastic, and if the crooks disguised as referees hadn't stopped him from playing against Spain (like they did with Thorsten Frings in 2006!! I LOVED how in contrast they overlooked Villa's jab and let him play!!! Crooks!!) maybe we'd had a better chance.

But Forlan best player, come on , where's the point in that?! No Schweinsteiger in the top 3? Scandal. The next EURO will be ours.


Yeah I hope so too.

Don't tell me you are German?!

I also had a "fight" with "EltonJohnLennon" - and he turned out to be a fellow German, too... Or is that you, with a new name?


Yeah, I am German.

No, I'm not "EltonJohnLennon" I'm MrBig.

Just bringing this topic up for the people discussing the World Cup on the derail thread...

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

I'm very happy that USA won at least 1 game. We don't really have a chance this year, but at least we defeated the same team that eliminated us the last two times. We are definitely in a tough group this time around.
