AFCON 2022

Recommended Posts

Anyone wasting their time watching?

Saw some of Senegal game earlier. Absolutely fucking honking.

Yet folk wonder why people take the piss. The football is akin to something I watch at Amateur level at Inverdee. 

Yes some world class players but probably 1 or 2 per team and the rest made up of pub players.

Zimbabwe fitba team. Grobelaar is surely the only Zimbabwean that's ever played fitba.

Then why are the African teams able to compete reasonably well at World Cup Finals?

Who?

Ghana once to the quarters played well. Or whoopee Senegal cause they fluked against a French team in a mess? Made quarters but shite football. Lucky win against Sweden in R2.

Nigeria have played 21 games in a WC... won 6.

4 teams have qualified and not even got a point.

Vast majority go out in Group stage. Scotland-esque so fits in with the Inverdee reference.

You're doing a huge disservice to Peter Ndlovu here.

Wish it was Scotland'esque. We don't get there now. Pub team would get gubbed by 20 to 30 goals. When did that happen? One of those wins would be a convincing 3-0 by Morocco IIRC. I didn't say they win the thing or qualify through the groups, I said they compete reasonably well. Like us in the Euros, only got a point but weren't that far away.

Watch 3 games of AFCON, full 90 minutes. Then tell me it's not like watching a game down Inverdee.

2 games I watched a bit of today. I didn't last long at all. It's utter shite.

3 games... good luck.

Aye saw it was another 1-0.

Under 1.5 goals throughout might be a great shout.

4 x 1-0 yesterday.

0-0 this afternoon.

1-0 Nigeria v Egypt.

I'll go pick out a coupon of 5 x 1-0s for up and coming games, put it on... So now all games will be 4-3 now I've done that.

Haha AFCON today:

Ref gives a pen to Tunisia which was never a pen. Literally tickled his fingers. He then blows for full time at 85 mins, Tunisians go nuts and ref realised his mistake and got the ball and chucked it at the Mali keeper to carry on.

30 seconds later... straight red for Mali player which was NEVER a red. VAR tells him it's not a red but he sticks with the decision.

4th official goes to hold up 6 mins on the injury time board. Ref blows for full time at 89 mins. Tunisians go nuts and ref gets security off the pitch.

Still only a 1-0. Goals galore.

It was a bizarre 15 mins of football.

What the fuck was the ref all about? Mental.

There's fuck all else on so I'll watch this game, and stand by my comments in my OP. It's fucking abysmal and this is the reason it doesn't get credit, not because of race... simply because it is fucking SHITE.

Nice win on The Gambia game. 
 

Put IC on to score the next goal aswell, this is the game that’s gonna buck the trend, despite EG’s recent form

I've got it on in the background but watching Barca game on iPad.

I fucked up and took over 1.5, despite getting the other 2 games correct with under 1.5.

Genuinely thought this would by easy for IvoryCoast but should have known better. Dodgy cunts.

Is this the lowest scoring tournament ever? 
 

it’s not even got that much comedy errors (apart from the ace ref today), it’s just really really bad fitba

If it continues I'm sure it will be.

I have noticed (up until this point) the keepers have improved, as they used to be good for comedy moments.

Almost as bad as wifeys fitba. Absolute garbage 😄

Nine 1-0s and two 0-0s, after 12 games. Dreadful viewing I would imagine.

Scenes as Ethiopia score after a few minutes.

Might get a goal fest finally (I went over 1.5 in this game so fingers crossed).
