Tedious Spain and more tedious penalties … plus Monday madness

Spain have been really lacklustre since the tournament started. Fred called it; just not good enough to beat a poor Russian outfit. The home nation still in the the comp definitely adds something, though.

Croatia Denmark was dull, too, but here’sย  a match report from VP who enjoyed the game…… ๐Ÿ˜€

Certain goal to win it snuffed out with a professional foul
Goalkeepers loomed large
Schmeichel ended up saving 3 penalties and goes home
Subasic saves 3 penalties and onwards
The drama around Modric taking his 2nd penalty
Exciting start
Exciting finish
time for breakfast in between
Croatia WIN!
what more can you ask for in a world cup game


On to today’s menu……

Brazil should be street wise enough to see off the Mexicans.

Japan shouldn’t be in the last 16 – Belgium to cruise into the quarters.

    Still working Chas?

    If so, monster effort to keep doing this before you set off

    Although, much appreciated whenever you do it

  4. Eddie says:

    we won?? excellent!! I had fallen asleep, bloody boring Danes, I told you about them. They get excited about windmills, thatโ€™s all there is to them

  5. Eddie says:

    poor puglett ๐Ÿ˜ฆ they squashed his head, reduced the nose, made the eyes to resemble Ozil and on top of it they dressed him in a zebra outfit and try to suffocate him with an orange. Awful, cruel, horrid people

  6. mickydidit89 says:


    Let’s be clear, I’m delighted Croatia won for you, and the competition because they are capable of playing good football, but, your line “what more can you ask for in a world cup game?” has a rather long list of answers, beginning with, your new fellow Croat fell asleep ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. mickydidit89 says:


    If I was a born again Croat and lived where you do, I’d go to Luton Airport and get a flight to Dubrovnich (sp?) for the night of your next game

  8. Eddie says:

    ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ dismal game

  9. Eddie says:

    dubrovnik aaaahhh, magic city

    I would love to go there again and watch the next game, health issues get in the way

  10. chas says:

    Yep still working.
    Did this mostly last night before the 2nd lot of pens.
    Hence the “Tomorrow” crossed out. โ˜บ

  11. Eddie says:

    chas – you are a star. Cbeers mate

  12. Eddie says:

    wimbledon and not raining, what the hell?

  13. mickydidit89 says:


    As site leader, please feel free to delete some of the tired stuff on the right of the page eg authors, and perhaps a new banner that better reflects the extraordinarily sexy nature of the new Arsenal and the current bloggers ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Eddie says:

    who is that?

  15. mickydidit89 says:

    Dunno Eddie

    Is this your new morning quiz routine?
    I can’t work out who’s team strip the fella sports. Is the yellow ribbon thing the clue? I know it means “support the victims of…” something or other. Misgendered folk?

  16. RC78 says:

    Ashley cole morhing into Patrice Evra?

    I am hoping for an England-Croatia semi-final as that would guarantee one quality football team in the final.

    On the other side, we are guranteed a top team:
    – Uruguay, France, Brazil, Belgium

    If France makes it to the final, we would have to beat:
    Argentina – Uruguay – Brazil or Belgium…tough road, not sure we have enough gas in the tank.

  17. Eddie says:

    yep, Cashley Hole not looking too good

  18. RC78 says:

    France – Uruguay
    Brazil – Belgium?

    Croatia – Russia
    England – Switzerland?

  19. RC78 says:

    Lucas Torreira 7 – Man marked Ronaldo out the game. The pocket dynamo, weighing 65kg, even out strengthened the great Real Madrid man.

  20. RC78 says:

    Lucas Torreira – 7.12

    Another strong performance, Torreira was like a pitbull at times and threw his body on the line to block four shots, winning three aerial duels despite standing at 5โ€™6โ€!

  21. fred1266 says:

    Last Concacaf team in WC really hope they can bring back the form we saw against Germany

    Japan deserve able six after how they played against Poland to qualify

  22. fred1266 says:

    I believe his name is Traitor

  23. fred1266 says:

    Guys don’t sleep on Columbia jus saying

  24. fred1266 says:

    Torreira is a CM or CDM

  25. RC78 says:

    Fred – he can play both. He is the Uruguayan version of Kante. Not as good yet but his nickname is Pitbull so you can imagine his drive to get the ball back. He is lacking a bit of skills with the ball and a bit of skills with his through ball but otherwise, he is great for defensive duties. Put him next to Xhaka and Miky (or Aaron) and you have a strong unit

  26. VP of Oz says:

    Micky, Micky, Micky. Of course Eddie fell asleep.
    This is quite common in newly endeared Croats during a World Cup campaign. The stress leads to sleep – The psychology and physiology of the โ€œfear napโ€.


    But then Eddie wakes up, Croatia has won, she is happy, stress is relieved. Next time, Eddie will probably prepare for the russia game by preparing a drink of MLEKO Z MIODEM


  27. mickydidit89 says:

    Ah ha, Eddie The Croat and the fear nap. Explains almost everything ๐Ÿ™‚

    Really hoping to squeeze in some Brasil Mexico action this pm, so must really press on now

    0-0 25 mins
    Great, haven’t missed much. Let the goal fest begin

  31. mickydidit89 says:

    35 degrees, nasty

    Hirving Lozano : apart from a cool name, is he the winger we need? Why not ๐Ÿ™‚

    Age 22. Only at diddy old PSV, so maybe getable

  32. mickydidit89 says:


  33. mickydidit89 says:

    right now, come on Mexico

  34. mickydidit89 says:

    So bored of this Brasilian fakery

    I reckon the clue to the ref when Neymar had clearly broken his ankle into tiny little pieces, was the fact that the sponge bloke thought the best remedy was a nice cool drink ๐Ÿ™„

  35. Eddie says:

    this should teach Courtois to keep his trap shut

  36. mickydidit89 says:

    Can you go to sleep right now Eddie ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. Eddie says:

    no way! I said at 0:2 that Belgium will win. I need them to score one more goal to be right yet again

  38. mickydidit89 says:

    yet again it is ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. Eddie says:

    i am right again.

  40. mickydidit89 says:

    What will the score be England Columbia?

  41. Eddie says:

    what do you think i fooking am? Dennis the Predicting Piranha?

    I just watched the game and thought that Belgians were too good for the Japs. There wasn’t going to be another Pearl Harbour you know

  42. mickydidit89 says:

    ha ha ha, you and your war analogies ๐Ÿ™‚

  43. LBG says:

    Most entertaining game of the competition so far. Disappointing for Japan! At least deserved extra time.

  44. Eddie says:

    the best of wars is now, Shakespearean revenge ๐Ÿ™‚

    LBG – did you see Hacksaw Ridge? They had more than enough time, them Japs
