Is that because he turned your team of no hopers down?

No I think it's largely because he is similar to your good self.

Just noticed that tiny little shitehouses Belgium have become the first European team to qualify for the big one next year.
 
What did they do right?

You obviously don't have a clue about international football. Are you even a football fan?

Cannae see a thread for this, which probably is an indicator of how apathetic we have become to our, at times pathetic national team.

Colonies Select, much like England and France. Must be a bit embarrassing for a white person in these countries when most of their team are fuzzy wuzzys.

Argentina might not be at Russia next year. 

 

They'll probably do it, but maybe not....

 

First time since 1970.

 

Need a win against Ecuador to make the playoff.

Not sure my maths is correct, but if Peru vs Colombia is a draw, then a win for Argentina puts them through automatically?

 

Argentina coach should be shot if he doesn't qualify.... Just had a swatch at their squad - an embarrassment of riches - they should be looking to win the whole thing!

Sounds about right buddy.

 

Think it's top 4 go through and 5th goes in to a play off with the Oceania chimps. 

 

I got a bit confused myself, and not for the first time. 

 

A World Cup without Argentina is as unthinkable as a World Cup with Scotland.

Shame we didn't get Belgiums group. Probably the weakest out of the lot.  We'd have made a pigs ear of it though.

The rules will be changed in 2022 for all the big teams to get through if Argentina miss out next year

Didn't notice that Holland (hard luck Dick!) were in such major trouble.

 

Realistically France are out of sight.  That leaves Sweden and Holland.  Both should beat Luxembourg and Belarus, respectively.... so that leaves a final head2head between Holland and Sweden.  Holland are probably going to have to win that by something like 5 or 6 goals, to make even scrape into the playoffs!

Not quite...

 

If Chile beat Brazil (who've already qualified) and Colombia beat Peru, then Argentina are in the play-off!

Argentina going to Russia.  

 

1-3 victory over Ecuador.  3 goals from the greatest footballer ever - Lionel Messi. 

 

 

 

Mental that Switzerland never won their group with 27 points !!   But fuck em....

Argentina joined by Uruguay, Colombia and of course the mighty Brazil.

 

Peru made the playoff.  2 legs against New Zealand. 

 

Can't remember the last time they were at a World Cup the old Peruvians likes.

For at least 30 years, at least, we've been hearing about how American are going to take over the Soccer universe.

 

Hopefully, that's put to bed now.  Regardless how vast a country is, if all the top athletes are attracted to other sports, you're not going to amount to much.  I've been saying this for years...

 

When i was a kid, I was always told the USA would be winning the world cup come 2018!

When i was a kid, I was always told the USA would be winning the world cup come 2018!

 

Didn't help that they fired JK and rehired Bruce A-fucking-rena. 

 

The problem is that the Yanks still have no idea what sort of philosophy they should have towards the game, and right now they've decided that kids should be taught that the proper way to play fitba is to be as defensive as possible. 

 

On Friday I'm taking my loon to a regional tournament where I'll be assisting their coach. In reality I'll be doing 90% of the coaching because the loon's team coach is in actual fact an administrator who can organise everything brilliantly but falls down on the actually being able to coach a fitba team. 

 

Last tournament we were at we were eliminated because, allegedly, even though we'd won more games and accumulated more points, scored more goals and had a massively superior goal difference to a team in another qualifying group, the team in the other group had let in less goals than us. We'd allowed maybe 1 or 2 more goals than them, but the goal difference between us and them  was double digits in our favour. I took it up with the regional organizer when I saw him and he was adamant that the way to play the game was to keep the goals against down. Didn't matter that our side was better by every other metric... including fucking POINTS... the team with the lesser goals against went through. I told him i no uncertain terms that that was some of the dumbest fucking shit I had heard in my life, and that the proper term for what he was promoting was Anti-Football... the cunt. 

 

So when you have grass roots orgs telling kids that it's not about playing exciting, attacking football and scoring goals, but rather just desperately keeping the goals against column as low as possible, you're going to have the best athletes saying, "Fuck it... I'll go play handegg instead." 

 

At least with JK you had a guy in the loop who had a European and forward thinking philosophy towards the game.  The fact that they dumped him for Bruce A-fucking-rena has set the game back ten years.  It's going to be another half decade before World Cup football comes to American TVs in the way it does when the national team is doing well, and if they don't get shot of the fat nosed prick and replace him with a competent manager the Yanks will struggle to qualify next time round inna.  And if kids aren't exposed to the game then they'll go play some stupid backwards shit like Baseball.

 

The USSF is coming perilously close to SFA territory in terms of incompetence. 

 

There is some outstanding talent at the kid's level, though...  I've coached some kids from U5 to currently U12/U14, and the ability in three or four of them is just ridiculous. And this is just one region in one State, and not even a State with an MLS franchise. It's up to the USSF to not be shite, and to hold onto this talent until it can make the breakthrough either here or abroad. 

 

If AFC wants to get in touch with me regarding the next Matthaus and Messi, though, I can give them a couple of names that they're going to want to get signed up for the youth academy.. though the Transatlantic logistics might be problematic  ;)
