France got ass kicked !!! It appears that there have been problems inside of the French Team, players were insulting their coach because he's a big pr***. Most of them play in big Teams, real madrid, manschester ..... but they can't support each others lol

Yeah, I kinda expected that the french team wouldn't get too far this time, but THAT?! I mean, they are at the bottom of their group and all the stuff that's happening in and around the team is just dissapointing...such great players with such a lousy team spirit. Domenech even refused the handshake with Pereira after the game (for a silly reason...). I wonder what the captain Evra will say to the press in a few days. Since I'll be in Paris from thursday to sunday I'll read all this in the french newspapers...that's gonna be interesting.
But there is a good chance that the german and the english team will be out tomorrow as well...

Germany looked pretty good first game, they should be fine. The English will take Slovenia, they are not that good, just caught the US in their traditional slow start, after that they were not much, we had twice as many shots on goal. And if not for a bizarre ref, they would have lost anyway. That ref had to be on the take. To call a foul on a guy who did not do anything at all, with most the Slovenians having arms wrapped around the other Americans, a guy with 17 years experience as a ref could not have done this call by mistake, he got paid by somebody. I bet there is a lot of that going on with refs.

all that holding and the US still scored. I don't understand how the world cup tournament works AT ALL. Shouldn't it just be if you win you move on?? You Europeans complicate everything........ laugh.gif laugh.gif

Called it right, German and English win. I of course felt the US would also, but did not want to say that. Another freaking ref disallowed a goal on a bad off sides call, but what the heck, they are just awful, we survived. The bookies who had him on the payroll must be disappointed. Well maybe next time they bet their money on us, and we get the calls.

Our bracket is very favorable, Ghana, and then either Uruguay or South Korea. Much better than what England has, Germany and Argentina.

Don't think so. But soccer is a sport in which you have to be used to see bad ref, fake injuries, people rolling on the ground to make the opponent takes a red card, etc...

It's pretty sad and I don't particularly like football because of all that crap.

When you watch rugby or hockey, you will never see that and the referees can call for the TV to back their decisions. Soccer is one of the last sport in the world that doesn't want camera to help referees.

In American Football, played on an even smaller field, the refs tend to be quite good, generally spot on. But they have 7 of them. Perhaps the problem is having only 3 refs. Seems inadequate to me, to watch that many players on that big of a field. I was sort of kidding about bookies paying these guys off, that probably is rare.

edit: although there was more to the really bad call on the free kick against Slovenia. There was a bad call for off sides in the last game against Algeria, but that was understandable, things are going fast, people understand a bad call like that. But that earlier call playing Slovenia was clearly intentional, the ref had decided to call it even before the free kick, there was absolutely nothing there to call, and he had the whistle in his mouth before anything even happened. Perhaps he felt the free kick should not have been awarded. But I am not sure, that is a case where I am convinced the ref was intentionally making a bad call, for whatever motivation I can't be sure.

Another parameter to take in consideration is that sometimes on TV, we can't see everything. Perhaps he whistled for some other reasons. But anyways, it's part of soccer I think.

You would have gone nuts seeing the last Chelsea vs Barcelona match in Champion's League. As Didier Drogba said, it was a complete disgrace. smile.gif

If you watch Premier League on a regular basis and particularly with mr. Howard Webb as referee you will see much, much worse decisions.

Yes, but if we'd continue to play like we do, we won't make it... Hopefully the next match will show full control and smooth attacks. I'm happy with the results so far, of course smile.gif...
