Re: Tell Me About Morocco: Group F World Cup 2022

As you know, of course I'm rooting for Croatia in Group F. Drawn with Belgium, Morocco, and Canada. I think it is a favorable draw. Belgium is good, but not the most imposing European outfit. I don't fear Canada, their 1st appearance in decades, with hardly any marquee players. The team I am cagy a...

Re: England 0 Hungary 4

Much as this result brightens my day, I don't think we should read too much into these Nations League games. Everybody is tired after a long season of football.

Re: Germany 5 Italy 0

Revenge for all those decades of pain that Italy doled out to Germany.

This is what happens when you have no midfield. Italy have gone rapidly downhill in that department since Pirlo left the stage

Re: Are We Seeing a New Generation of Strikers?

Expanding on my op: Its not that we have never seen powerful strikers before in football.

Re: Are We Seeing a New Generation of Strikers?

You just described almost every striker that has played for Germany in the last 30 odd years. Klinsmann, Voeller, Bierhoff, Klose, Muller etc. All tall, strong, skilled on the ball and very direct. Italy got wise to the game in 2006 with the addition of Luca Toni(6' 4") and Fabio Grosso(6' 3&q...
