Yup the best game so far. CR7 saved Portugal.

Just finished watching the Agentina vs Iceland game. Whts wrong with Messi?!!...missed a penalty AGAIN!! I don't know if its the massive pressure that got the better of him or simply just wasn't his day. Nevertheless, full credit to Iceland for parking the bus and holding on to it the entire game thereby making it extremely difficult for messi and his team.

Hope Messi will rediscover his magic soon that we all know of when he is in Barcelona jersey.

Dreading England on Monday 

England, another clear underdogs. They have a good set of young players. If they jell together and continue their fine league forms then I bet they can beat the top teams. England will be looking for a change in fortunes this time round.

Peru were unlucky,thought they played some great football,nice quick pace to their game,just no end product(terrible penalty),small team though that conceded  10 goals from set pieces in qualifying and they were undone not by a set piece but a big man at the back post.

France were lucky thought the aussies dug in well and France were underwhelming.

Speaking as a Northern Ireland fan I hope England do well,the only home nation in it....we were robbed against the swiss in the playoffs lol

Think they'll beat Tunisia on Monday night Glen,although they have only won 1 of their last 7 opening games in tournements,which sounds really bad when you hear that,,it surprised me...time for 2 in 8 :)

Ya ...felt sorry for Peru. Their finishing let them down I must say. 

I want all these small teams to do well.

Poor game earlier,lit up by a stunning free kick from kolarov.

just watching the Mexico v Germany atm , Mexico look great so swift and pacy on the counter,Germany dare I say it look very lethargic thus far...don't expect that to continue though.

Bummer!

To be honest, my expectations weren't too high after an unimpressive build up to the tournament.
Their lone win came against a mediocre Saudi team.

A wins a win,so theyre off to a better start than previous years...but 1 question,what did they have to do to earn a penalty from the set pieces? Tunisian defence were playing rugby with Kane at every opportunity...apart from 2 :)

Belgium looked good when they got themselves sorted 2nd half,didnt see the Sweden game.

Argentina are shite 

Yeah certainly looks that way,they just about scraped into the competition because their qualifying wasn't great either.

My only interest in the world cup is to make sure Australia do really poorly and drop out quickly.

That way I'll hear a lot less about it :)

I was hoping Iceland would make it on to the next round, but I doubt they'll beat Croatia.

Some interesting games coming up in the next few days.....

France - Argentina
Uruguay - Portugal
Brazil - Mexico
Croatia - Denmark
Sweden - Switzerland
England - Colombia

I'm guessing France, Uruguay, Brazil, Denmark, Sweden and England will win

    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New song 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/
