FIFA World Cup 2014

Recommended Posts

Gutted it's all over, it's been a good month of quality football, bring on Russia 2018! Well deserved win from Germany, it was nice to see as European team win in South America.

 

Yes, not sure what I will do with my evenings now! Still we only have to wait 2 years to the Euros, and that's almost as much fun. It's difficult to see who will give Germany a game though from Europe. The Dutch could do right now, but Robben, Van Persie and Sneijder will all be too far the wrong side of thirty by then. You can't help but feel the Spanish are now set to decline. Italy, maybe - not sure who they've got coming through, but Pirlo can't go on forever? The French look like they could improve though. Disappointing in the knockouts but showed early promise in the group stages. And they will have home advantage. England have some promising young attacking players, but the big problem is our defense, which quite frankly, was all over the place in Brazil. Sadly, I don't see that being sorted in two years time.

It's true that Argentina had more chances to score but this doesn't mean Germany didn't deserve to win.

They didn't fail their chance, that's why they deserved to win.

Cause in football, as weird as it might seem, the team that scores more goals wins! :pp

Well, I guess the Euros will have to come up next. I think this has been the best World Cup of my life (19 years). Hoping that maybe in 2018 England can maybe get to the semis.

I'll always have fond memories of France 98 and Japan/South Korea 2002, but this one has definitely been one to remember.

We were talking about World Cup history today at work, and then to my horror I realised some of my younger colleagues weren't born in 1990. Christ it made me feel old!

 

EDIT - just done the maths - be thankful you weren't around for Graham Taylor and the Carlton Palmer era. However bad it's been for England, it's never been that dire since! Steve Mac did his best to match it but even the brolly wally didn't manage to bottom it out that far.

Best world cup I've seen so far. Germany were absolutely ruthless. Manuel Neuer is such a beast GK!

Best world cup that I can remember as well. Although honestly I don't remember too much from previous ones. :p

 

I don't even really remember how we got to the final last time. I remember Italy and France being beaten pretty badly by us, but that might have been in the Euro cup two years before that. I guess that match against Spain in the final just overshadowed my whole memory of the world cup.

So in 1966 England won the World Cup, their next competitive match was against Scotland, who won.

 

In 2014 Germany won the World Cup their next competitive match is a against... Scotland... 'Mon Scotland ya beauty.

 

PS I still am of the opinion Neuer should have been booked, you can argue all day that it was as much his ball to go for as Higuians, but to jump that high with his knee at that height, was just plain and simply reckless and Higuain was extremely lucky not to get concussion much like Kramer for German did earlier on.

 

Seriously:

I agree. I'm not an expert on the rules but isn't dangerous play (don't know what it's called in English) a possible foul?

 

Regardless, giving Germany a free kick in this situation was utterly ridiculous. Anyone know what the reasoning behind this was?

That image is sped up , observe the time , it doesn't take a second to go from 08 to 09 , plus Neuer was first to the ball so despite the contact it wasn't a foul.

I've just watched a highlights video of the match

 

Get out, get out now.

Well there's your problem.

 

 

Don't get me wrong. I watched the whole game live from the start up to the final referee whistle. What I did today is that I watched a highlights video just to refresh my memory.

I disagree. Neuer went for a high ball in the penalty area. Keepers are always allowed to do that. Keepers are protected for what they do in the panlty area and when physical contact happens they are generally favoured. It is unfortunate that Higuain was hit like that, and it was weird that the ref whistled against Higuain. I think it is similar to two players trying to head the same ball and knocking their heads against each other. It is unfortunate but it isn't a foul. Some people compared it to Schumacher 1982, but that was a case where a goalkeeper went for a player, which should be a red card. Neuer went for the ball and had an unfortunate accident.

On Neuer though, he is the most amazing goalkeeper I have ever seen. I'm not old enough to remember Schmeichel live, but he is simlar to him. The way Neuer throws balls to attacking players half the field away for a counter is amazing. Neuer is the perfect goalkeeper. Mats Hummels is among the best defenders I've ever seen play. In the final he was struggling, probably because he was not completely fit. It was the weakest game I've ever seen him play.

Jimbatron and Hodgey you are just so butthurt. PS. The Wembley "goal" was not a goal: This was proven through the analysis of the way of the ball in old footage from the game. The ball was on the goal line and not behind.

 

Hodgey chances are good that you will never experience a world cup win. Sorry to all the English people who are not assholes.

.

A bigger, more recent injustice was 2010 when Frank Lampard levelled for 2-2 before half time and it wasn't given.

Pff, that wasn't a goal!

Well like I say that day Germany were better and deserved to win. The only real injustice was to Lampard who deserved to be credited with a goal. 1966 however was a goal, was given, but we had enough to win without it and were the better team ;)

Italy being beaten pretty bad by which team?

Holland?

Cause that didn't happen.

Last time Italy and Holland played was EC2000 and Italy eliminated the host: Holland.

Before that only in 1978 if I'm not wrong.

^ England invented the game but Brazil learned to love it the most. Something that is referenced in MP3 incidentally, since this is an R* related forum.

 

I look forward to seeing Brazil in Russia.

The speed is irrelevant, the intent is the issue.

 

@jimbatron: There is train of thought from studies of journals and memoirs from the time, that the game of football was loosely based on a game that was played by Native Americans and was basically "jumpers for goalposts" type football that was played with an inflated and then hardened Buffalo stomach. This was brought back to England by the early travelers and settlers and and adapted to be more gentrified.

 

@Topic: Viewers in NY State were pissed off with a local channel who cut to a weather report before the end of the game causing viewers to miss the end of the game. Some of the responses are just great.

 

Also, didn't notice how much Shurrle looks like Steve The Pirate

Since this WC I think more positive of your country (not saying I thought negative of it before). It gave you good reputation in my opinion. I'm looking forward to Putin's propaganda show in 2018.

This sh*t happened to me! Luckily, the game as shown on 3 different stations so I just went from ABC to ESPN 2, didn't miss a thing. So there's apparently a rumor going around the Philippines and my Filipino friends that the 2018 World Cup has been switched to the Philippines from Russia. HAHA

Blatter said the main thing he's disappointed with in this world cup was the failure to prevent and properly punish acts of discrimination, including things like homophobic chanting and racism. Then he went on to say he hopes there are less of these acts in 2018. Lololol. He realises it's in Russia right?

Am I the only one that is kinda hoping that the US bids and gets the WC in 2026 because of how much football has progressed here?

I would much rather see it in Europe or close by since time differences are small to non-existent for me then, or at least in a nation that has a real football culture. The thought of having a WC happening in the US bores me tbh.
