Re: Average Hieght of WC Squads. Ghana tell it ain't so...

What is usually considered the best club side in Europe of all time, Pep Guardiola's Barcelona, was a bunch of midgets who used to bully giants every week.

This post may age well if Argentina gets to the Final :biggrin:

It's quickly shaping up to be one of the great World Cups so far.

Re: Africa is not good at football

Asking citizens of a continent endemic with poverty to put their meagre livelihood on home to go watch matches or trace long distances to go watch matches is unrealistic. That’s just fantasy thinking. It ain’t going to happen. I do not have the stats but I bet you in the 80s when the economic situa...

Re: [WC 2022] BRAZIL 1 (Richarlison) SERBIA 0

I believe it was deliberate. Neymar for one attracts retaliation, holding on too long, sometimes show boating almost to taunt. And he dives. But in this game he clearly was targeted and brutalized. Ref should have protected him, full stop. I am surprised Serbia didn't get a more yellows even a red....

If they terminate his contract now, do they have to pay the remainder of the salary.

Re: LIVE: Full Cristiano Ronaldo interview Part 1 | 16-Nov-22

The interview was actually less dramatic and an anti climax compared to all those tweets being shared around all week. And Piers Morgan didn't do a good job, most of the time he was feeding Ronaldo with words and driving him on to say some things. But anyway now i doubt any serious club will want Ro...

@wisey, at the risk of appearing like a Ronaldo sympathiser, let me say that apart from one or 2 uncalled for remarks eg. On Ten Hag and especially Ralf Rangnick, Ronaldo was right on the money on almost everything he said. He is right about Glazers, about the club facilities, club ambition and ever...
