Re: World Cup 2022

[it was called out on the field but var overturned it and let the goal stand. yeah any part of the ball still touching the air-line is enough, but there was no official photo/computer diagram/whatever so they probably went with in-ball sensors or some such nonsense that shouldn't allow for millimetr...

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.
it's a pity werner is injured, him and musiala would be utter delightful chaos

Re: World Cup 2022

i didn't see richie do anything like that for spurs yet :o

so, one game in and it looks like only spain or brasil could rightfully win this ... which might very well mean no sleep till the semis for harry ...

Re: World Cup 2022

Re: World Cup 2022

i honestly thought there is going to be an unspoken forum-wide moratorium on Qatar WC 2022 activities personally i'm not into that holier than thou isolationist boycot thing (and for strictly moral reasons would have to boycot anything with u.s. involvement too) ... it was worth it already for the ...

Re: Futbol '22-'23

I'd take Aurier back in a heartbeat. haha yeah we discussed him too, he would be such a good fit now and of course the energy would be welcome. we'll be watching the world cup without any moral qualms but without much initial enthusiasm either. we just hope for the early demise of england so kane c...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2022

I'm very curious about Dark since I very much like Dying of The Light . The variation on the unhinged Nicolas Cage's character that he keeps on playing managed to remain interesting, as was the skewed commentary on the US' shenanigans in the Middle East. hey it's on archive.org in reasonable qualit...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2022

Re: Futbol '22-'23

hey, for once the performance was better than the result ... so is this progress or standard spursiness? re cl draw: barf, pep gets a free pass and we don't get to see spurs or any interesting club ... since the boy is not a rats fan anymore, we wouldn't mind witnessing a slaughter, but not at the h...

Re: Futbol '22-'23

werner's out for the year. gvardiol is fine after some some struggles, good energy, sometimes awkward, but really i'll have to see how everything settles under the new coach. they always become better when they revert to type, still the rangnick blueprint, and allow for more chaos. how long can they...

Re: Futbol '22-'23

that first half was the most insipid yet (except for some comic relief e.g. when dier twice answered the request for more crosses from the back line with unprovoked blind passes into his own box). luckily marseille aren't very good, still it could have gone wrong. some of the players, kane first of ...

Re: Futbol '22-'23

https://i.imgur.com/qnnYouc.jpg it was pretty depressing ... the last half hour was no joy to watch, with newcastle settling in preposterous timewasting mode and spurs clearly unable to get much going ... still there were chances, but nobody in the stadium seemed to believe ... actually we were som...

Re: Futbol '22-'23

so we watched the man u game at the bricklayers in the night shadows of white hart lane. in front of us was a table of koreans, three of whom wore son jerseys, plus two other son jerseys (on other folk in the room). kane, romero (?!), and dele once. the mood was negligible, but i wouldn't hold it ag...

Re: Futbol '22-'23

peace! :D i didn't mean to suggest conte had ordered his men to leave nice spaces outside the box for shooting, and yes, final passes were abysmal and then also kulu will return ... many recent first halfs have looked like this, though, with energy levels pretty low when opponents have the ball, sta...

Re: Futbol '22-'23

hm. dropping really deep but still being afraid of catching an opponent's breath is maybe not a promising tactic. the most worrying thing though is if the half-time dressing down no longer works.

Re: Recently Watched Films 2022

Are you a Herzog fan in general, Lutz? I think you have to be one, i.e. prepared to accept those numerous eccentricities, to get anything out of his stuff. I remember enjoying this - I was rather surprised in fact to reread my own somewhat excessively elogious comments above - but I do take your po...
