    Wow if I get an infraction for double posting I will be enraged but I really have to post I am Just so Pissed off with United [Inactive thread though]

    ~Stoke 2-1 Manchester United
    First off I am very disgusted in Manchester United's Performance today. I honestly thought that we were gonna thrash stoke 5-0since Rooney and R.v.P are back.As I said in my last post United should have bought Defenders, we are without Evans, Jones and Vidic due to suspension and injuries. Evra's performance was poor today, it was very hard to believe that he was Manchester's captain. Today's performance literally put me to tears and i hope that there wont be anymore of those performances from Manchester United. Moyes wasn't too smart in this transfer season. United need DEFENDERS and a GOOD Goalkeeper...Damnit we could have bought Julio Cesar from QPR [De Gea is not impressing me]

    I can agree with you that United should get defenders but De gea hasn't been bad, except for that mistake against Sunderland. Heck, without De Gea United would have probably lost more games.

    Football is great and there should be way more discussion in this thread because it's fun :D

    ANYWAY WHAT AN EXCITING DAY TODAY. David Moyes (finally) got the sack. Even though I'm mainly a Tottenham fan, it hurt to see ManU struggle so much especially while the two clubs I despise most, Chelsea and City, are doing so well.

    Also Champions League semi's today woohoo. I feel like Atletico vs Chelsea is going to be a bad game with two teams more occupied with not losing rather than winning. A fast away goal would be absolutely fantastic to make it an interesting game after all.

    I have to not agree with this, and in my opinion that match would be better than Real Madrid vs Bayern. Both Atletico and Chelsea are relieved since they didn't get to play against the other "strong" teams, and they both want to be in the Final game so I think we'll see more offense than defense in that match!

    I hope to see Atletico win the championship, underdog teams are the best.
    My team BVB was close but Real proved too strong and Mhkitaryan missed some chances but owell :[
    Hopefully they can show that its not just money that wins

    If you put your hand in front of a Benfica's player mouth, they explode. Horrible 2nd half, Juventus was better. Fairest result was a draw. Next Sunday please allow these poor creatures some rest.

    Adnan Januzaj from Manchester United decided to play for Belgium :D I'm very excited for this and I hope our coach takes him to Brazil, even though he never played for the qualifiers. There's a certain someone he could easily leave at home in favor of Januzaj *cough* Simons *cough*.

    PS: Nice prediction Yagura :]

    Great defensive game from our side (another one). Sevilla is a great club and it is going to be a fantastic final in the beautiful Juventus arena.

    Sevilla isnt ready for a final like this. They are just too irregular (some matches they are gods and some they play like a 5th division team). Benfica has it imo.

    And in CL gonna be damn close. If both have a good day and dont close themselves defending we can see a 3-3 match or something like that. I would bet that it'll end in penalties (JS).

    It's actually a pretty surprising selection as a whole lol. Like when we were looking at it at school, no one even recognized Origini lo!l. Overall I just hope we get through the group stage which would be a massive relief to every Belgian .We still have massive traumas from missing out of WCs and ECs by choking against weaker opponents and these lost friendlies against Columbia, Japan AND Ivory Coast don't exactly help either. After that I think literally everything is possible, even though Germany or Portugal (most likely) are pretty tough match ups.

    ANYWAY WORLD CUP HYPE WOOHOO

    I'm also really glad he had the balls to leave Simons out of the selection. I don't get the commotion about that. If we can get this train going in our 1st match vs Algeria (not the hardest competition) we might get far :D

    WORLD CUP HYPE WOOHOOO

    wow only realized europa league finals are today MORE HYPE
    My money's on Benfica. They're really solid in the back and they have some nice attackers too, not to mention they're insane on set pieces. Sevilla on the other hand hasn't really impressed me much, but then again I haven't seen all that many of their games either. Here's to a nice match!

    Europa League finals :]
    I think Benfica got this tbh. They had a great season (again) and their team is just incredibly solid. They have great attackers (Luisao lol) and it's showing. Maybe I just hope they win because they knocked Tottenham out… Anyway, Sevilla is another great team with a great attacker, BACCA, who used to play in Belgium. Sevilla has had more ups and downs this season, and they haven't been to consistent. The return in the semis was a great example of that. Benfica on the other hand, hasn't had a lot of troubles this season and that's why I feel Benfica has the edge tonight.

    The opening ceremony was horribly plain but the reason is understandable. About the match I noticed some huge holes in the right side of Brasil's defense the first goal and a lot of scoring attempts the coach better warn his players about it. I don't think the score would stay the same, but I think the final score would still be a draw.

    Shitty, dirty referee. No way you could possibly defend that worthless piece of shit.

    A bit of curiosity: the last World Cup that Brazil won, in 2002, had their first match be poorly played against Turkey, who scored first but ended up losing 2-1 because of a very doubtful penalty in favour of Brazil.
    Sounds familiar??

    Also, if they end up losing Neymar to card accumulation or injury, they should start praying, because the entire Brazil playstyle relies on his ability to speed up the offense from their half of the field. A tie would be the most fair result, but oh well...

    Brasil was better and deserved to win. The croatian defender was dumb. Oscar is top class.

    Poor Uruguay, but Costa Rica deserved the win, they played way better especially in the second half.

    Time to watch Jolly Old England eat The Boot

    Edit: Called it. Surprisingly good match, especially the first half, considering both teams had poor performances in the last World Cup and were somewhat overlooked as potential candidates to win.

    That simulation with Marchisio and the last shot that hit the bar... And people say Pilro should pack his bags lol. That black kid from England is a beast, such talent!

    Well have to say , proud of Chile! They played absolutely unreal , Spain are a feckin disgrace this W.C anyway....
    Also Holland played worse than Spain in the first half of todays game, really proved themselves in the second half though !
