  1. Even the highly touted (and rightly so) Kante couldn't keep Modric quiet (and Nzonzi sure couldn't). Almost always available, reliable and accurate. I can't truly forgive that he turned his back on Pogba's second shot, but that's more or less the only thing he did wrong this game. We probably won't see him again in four years either.
  2. Modric turns his back to the shot...
  3. Disagree with the penalty call. Made no move toward the ball, and couldtn't reasonably be expected to move his hand out of the way. Plus, it wasn't headed for goal/clear scoring opportunity, and would have been a corner kick.

    Round of 16: : LET THE (Knockout) GAMES BEGIN!

    Man, good call by Lukaku to leave that pass for Chadli. Most attackers would have fumbled a shot with that ball.

    Ref let both keepers jump off the line consistently at least, but... ???

    Round of 16: : LET THE (Knockout) GAMES BEGIN!

    I used to love watching Spain/Barcelona play when tiki-taka became a thing, because the coiling tension usually manifested itself in some form of attempt at goal.

    Football: Jules Rimet Still Gleaming

    In non-WC news, 17-year-old Erling Håland, son of Alf Inge Håland if anyone remembers him, has just scored four goals in 20 mins (one penalty), reportedly with scouts from MUFC in the stands. I wonder if he's none too keen (get it?) to go there, considering...

    And here we are, broken-hearted and suffering. The pain must be quenched, with much sangria and a long siesta.

    Round of 16: : LET THE (Knockout) GAMES BEGIN!

    Absolutely. Anywhere else on the pitch, that's a yellow card. Refs have to stomp this shit out. It favors poor defending over goals, and guess which is more fun for the average/neutral viewer?

    The entire Spanish team are into edging, it would seem. I mean, Vamos España!

    Prediction: Pepe will shit himself, and then claim Suarez did it.

    Given acres of space there. Yikes!
  13. As was the plan all along. Bring on the Russian bear! Vamos!!! Besides that, Pique should have been sent off, if not for the studs-first two footed tackle alone, then at least cumulatively along with that clear hand ball.

    The Green Butchers, Danish dark comedy. He's hilarious in it.

    Well, it was fun while it lasted, also-ran. I mean, I-ran.
