Re: Futbol '22-'23

Followed by an epic collapse at City. It wasnt that long ago we were all in agreement the Spurs defense were much improved and quite solid. But I read somewhere that they have conceded the most goals in the league since Oct? The whole back line seems out of sorts now. Top 4 seems out of reach, and e...

Re: Futbol '22-'23

quoted coz i'm evil: Conte doesnt seem to have a clue, he's such a poor manager imo. Inter would do well to get rid of him sooner rather than later. Was I right before I was wrong before I was right? Or was I wrong beforeI was right before I was wrong? Either way, if I keep flip flopping eventually...

Re: Futbol '22-'23

let us know when you change your mind :-) yes, conte is not responsible for lloris' own goals and you're better on tactics than me, but what we've strongly felt for some time (and what the guardian also writes about today) is that it's no help having a manager who always maybe wants to leave. (that...

Re: Futbol '22-'23

I'm not on the Conte Out brigade yet, but the decision may not be Spurs, I think he will probably be gone by his own decision this summer. For right now, I'll give him a pass with Richarlison, Kulusevski, Bentancur unavailable. Its an appearance of "nobody knows what to do" or a lack of ideas going ...

Re: World Cup 2022

Goals of the tournament? Off the top of my head in no particular order: 1. Goncalo Ramos roofs the near post strike, no idea how that even went in, looked like it went through the post. 2. Netherlands Rube Goldberg set piece 3. Perisic's header from 16m out 4. Argentina's counterattack in the Final...

Re: World Cup 2022

One of the best international matches I can remember, but maybe not even the best Fra-Arg match. The 4-3 in '18 was better? Better goals there but higher drama here. Yes Deschamps switch to 4-2-3-1 helped solidify the midfield, as well as move Mbappe more centrally. Also the "divine hand" of illness...

Re: World Cup 2022

Yeah and it was bound to catch up with us sooner or later. Sadly, the most disappointing Croatian player for me this tournament has been Perišić who just seems to have lost a step and run out of ideas from the wing. Which tracks with his trajectory with Spurs. Late summer he looked quite a signing a...

Re: World Cup 2022

CRO is definitely not anti-football. beside the Neymar goal probably the most breathtaking piece of football was that Petkovic dribble in the first overtime on the counter attack between two Brazillian defenders to set up Brozovic with a opportunity. CRO simply has everything that it takes Agreed, ...

Re: World Cup 2022

to the neutral, argentina vs croatia will be tough watching :-) Croatia is a bit like eai in many ways, an acquired taste. Most neutral listeners will find the "inertia", "lack of development", "monotony" a bit boring and "anti-music", which is silly of course. (I'm not saying that's what you are s...

Re: World Cup 2022

"Pep" Gvardiol the player of the tournament (at least on the defensive side) for me. Will be the best CB in the world in a year or two. What a player.

Re: World Cup 2022

Croatia not setting the pitch on fire but are probably the mentally strongest team in the tournament, and lucky/tactically flexible/physical/experienced at tournament football. Brazil looks ready to steamroll to the quarters into a South American derby though. They are always a bad matchup for us wi...

Re: World Cup 2022

Gvardiol was immense today, man of the match, what a rock he is going to be for Croatia for years to come. Petković was excellent when he came on. Livaja was invisible today. Was expecting a Spain matchup but we get a spunky Japan. Not sure there's too much of a difference either way, they have simi...

Re: World Cup 2022

The player who has impressed me the most that I had not seen before is Musiala, best player in the German squad and absolutely electric will the ball at his feet. What a talent, and Gakpo has impressed too.

Re: World Cup 2022

The Richarlison goal was nice but perhaps easier than it looked imo. He mis-touch popped it straight up perfectly and then a bit of improvisation but it was on a tee for him and probably for most strikers not too difficult to get a good strike when it is chest high and hanging like a ripe peach to b...
