For ordinary league mode maybe they could impose strict time limits, but for this I'm fine with refs taking their time.
As for your Switzerland prediction; I'm not buying that either, but as I said before, the right side of the bracket currently looks fairly do-able, so yeah, it's basically primed for a surprise finalist!
Did you see us against Panama?! They should just award us the World Cup trophy on that performance alone! I mean, if you see our Media, we may as well have won the entire thing.Chrill wrote:There isn't a snowballs chance in somewhere warm that England could dismantle Switzerland, mate. That one is the least of my concerns regarding those picks
I do like that idea, like an appeal in Cricket. Though, would that perhaps make it a bit too stop-start?Chrill wrote:Perhaps, a team should have 2-3 calls per game where they request VAR to be used.
I'm just glad that the majority of VAR decision's are generally rather quick.
I'd be gutted for Iceland to not make last 16,they have achieved so much already, and hopefully the Icelandic people will recognise that, even if they do drop out here.
So far so good, France stayed ahead of DenmarkRedirect Left wrote:I vote if Chrill and his prediction comes true, we all owe him at least two beers or other drink of his choice at next TT-F meet!
Switzerland would beat England. We'll have to wait and seeBadger wrote:England vs Switzerland.PNG
England would beat Switzerland....
Also, darn it Nigeria. You broke my table by not keeping that 1-1 score.
Croatia finish their group as the top, having won 3 out of 3. Not bad!

England to win the lot.
You heard it here first.
We will see chaps.
But the game was ... just depressing. It wasn't even as haphazard as the one against Mexico, or as mixed as the one against Sweden. It was just ... slow. Directionless. South Korea didn't have many chances. But Germany barely had any either.
Out of the many things I worried about after the Sweden game being this harmless in front of goal definitely wasn't one of them. ^^;
Mentality just seemed all over the place this year. Rightfully gone out after today's non-performance.
Thank god it hasn't come true!Redirect Left wrote:I vote if Chrill and his prediction comes true, we all owe him at least two beers or other drink of his choice at next TT-F meet!
That's the risk of being a sweeper keeper, you occasionally get caught out of position. I'd still rather have Neuer in net instead of any other keeper in the world, except maybe Ederson, Ederson is amazing.Redirect Left wrote:One of the goals included a completely open shot, after the goal keeper had gone way out of his zone, and no where near the goal posts when the ball arrived
Should have taken Leroy Sané instead of Brandt in my opinion, he would have brought an injection of pace and a different dimension to that German team. How you can justify not taking someone who played 32 times in a team that walked the English Premier League last season, a league well known for being extremely competitive, and was the UK's young player of the year, I don't understand anyway.Pyoro wrote:It was just ... slow.

Well, they were 1-0 down with 2-3 minutes to go. Neuer played as striker, more or less. It's a shame he lost the ball, but in reality he had to be up there to give them a one-man advantage.Pilot wrote:That's the risk of being a sweeper keeper, you occasionally get caught out of position.

We'll be sure to try making sure its you that is getting taunted for four yearsChrill wrote:I've put you down for Colombia, so that would add up in my playoffs bracket. Also, you know, the winner of Colombia-England would play the winner of Sweden-Switzerland so there's that. The chance to taunt you lot for four years is a lovely opportunity.
Panama crash out, but not before scoring a goal, making history for the World Cup. Every team this year scored at least two goals, a feat never accomplished in a World Cup to date.
Panama can also celebrate as they finish their cup campaign having scored the same amount of goals as last event winners, Germany!

Speaking of which, if anyone wants one this year, you'd better organise it - unfortunately I won't be able to attend/organise this year (unless you want it in Aberdeen).Redirect Left wrote:I vote if Chrill and his prediction comes true, we all owe him at least two beers or other drink of his choice at next TT-F meet!
Spain have been knocked out by the Russians. Another big name is out, and that's my bet lost! Argentina were knocked out yesterday by France, Portugal also went out by Uruguay.
I've still no idea who is more likely to win this World Cup, but a lot of big names aren't in the mix anymore!
