Sorry wrong thread, this is soccer world cup, not hockey
What's with all this talk about players refusing to pass to each other and things?
Maybe they're arguing over who gets to handball next
I guess everyone in Ireland will be cheering for Uruguay tomorrow
I'm interested if any of the refs or players wear earplugs because of the vuvuzela.
Seeing as the World Cup is going to be broadcast in 3D. How many here already have 3D TVs, or are planning to go somewhere to watch a match in 3D?
Here in Denmark at least one cinema is showing the matches in 3D. Not in my local area though. 3D TVs are also available in stores.
It could be fun to try but there are way less 3D cameras filming live in the stadiums than regular cameras and 3D cams can't zoom. I'm thinking this might subtract a bit from the overall experience.
I wasn't that impressed with Avatar 3D, so I'm not hopefully that it will be any better with footy which, I'd imagine, is probably a lot more technically difficult to setup.
OK, it's been boooooring so far. I hope England-USA gets interesting.
I saw nothing wrong with the Italy game, though I agree that at least one of the two offsides (can't remember if it was the first or the second now, it being eight years ago) in the Spain game was a bad call. It happens, though... it's certainly not the only time I've seen a game come down to a bad call. I suppose it's possible that many refs are biased in favour of the home team, but sometimes a bad call is just a bad call.
Also, when calls go against Italy, Spain, Portugal or any South American team, I find it hard to feel bad for them, given the amount of diving and acting they do. Maybe it's the "boy who cried wolf" effect. If I was reffing, I'd certainly tend to err on the side of the team that didn't have a long history of trying to trick the ref.
Anyway, that debate aside, I think we can all agree that the Reds brutalized Greece fair and square today. Bodes well for their chances... I imagine everything will come down to their game against Nigeria.
Yes for sure, italy in last world cup won against australia with a non-existent penalty
Today matches were cool. A pity for UK's GK green... ouch
pretty normal performance from England I dont think even Capello knows who to put in goal, its so much easier when you have a definite number 1 keeper. At least we're in an 'easy' group, its still redeemable.
Some of the players looked tired/slow.
Argentina looked good.
Two games so far today, and two blatant, game-changing, completely unnecessary handballs. Will Australia-Germany be similarly embarrassing? Hopefully not.
Fortunately, Germany-Australia was a great game. The first interesting game in the world cup so far, IMHO. England-US was fun but not that much.
Germany were good value for the win, and looked great even before Cahill was (very wrongly) sent off.
Looking forward to seeing Holland v Denmark tomorrow...a nice Scandinavian grudge match...
Nice to hear someone enjoyed the game. For us Aussies it was somewhat painful.
I didn't see how he was sent off, but I did hear a yellow card would have suited things better.
Looked like a harsh decision on Cahill. Was a slightly odd tackle if you watch it again, he is kind of falling over. I suppose it could be seen as a tackle from behind (which you cant do anymore).
Germany were good, but Aussies shouldve marked them better, they had too much space/time to play. Like England, Aus need to focus on the next 2, winnable, games.
BTW, the stadia look great, pretty amazing job they've done over there.
Yeah, whenever we fail at doing that, we tend to give games away.
Agreed, and hopefully our guys can pick themselves up and get back in the fight.
Danish OG? At least it wasn't a handball. Agree that Germany-Australia was okay... felt bad for the Australians, but at least it was a game won by the winning team's prowess rather than sketchy calls (the red card notwithstanding) or defensive blunders.
