2019 Soccer Catchall Thread

Is anyone pulling for England?

...or is everyone pulling for The Netherlands?

Remember how brutal the 2006 World Cup clash was? That was much more Mortal Combat than FIFA World Cup.

Lovren-esque from de Ligt

Yeah that was bad, they have been lazy with the ball at the back all game. Could almost see it coming, and the England forwards have done a good job in pressuring the backline. There has been no flow or rhythm to this game so far.

Chillwell(sp?) is a flopping bitch. 

That shouldn’t be a yellow. The English guy jumps in front and gets hit in the shoulder with a head and then grabs his head to draw the yellow. 

Then Twellman is going on about a concussion when there was nothing there. 

*Then Chillwell gets away with what would have been a PK last year in Russia.

Is there no VAR in Nations League. Thought Holland had a case once I saw the replay.

There is, but they have chosen not to use it. 

The “foul” on CR7 that preceded his beautiful free kick goal was just good defending, but VAR made up for it later when Joao Felix was brought down as he is trying to shoot on goal from 12 yards out and there wasn’t even a whistle blown.

I like that VVD / De Ligt pairing. Let's make it permanent. 

Yeah, lock in their citizenship.

Finally. De Ligt redeems himself. England hasn’t touched the ball this half. 

VVD is a colossus. Spraying 50 yard passes right on the money. Looks like Pirlo playing CB.

With 20 minutes left, the Dutch look like Barcelona without Messi. 

Lots of passing, but zero finishing threat.

Frenkie goes to Barcawood is a star in the making

I think it's a move too soon for him.

Their midfield is old as shit. He’ll get minutes.

I'm worried about the club and manager. It's not the place to drop a young kid imo. Especially not one that's not La Masia. My prediction is it'll be Kovacic at Madrid northern version.

The ratio of positive stuff announcers say about Lindgard to his actual play is off the charts. He is not good. 

And he's been "young" for 10 years. I'd extend him at 300k per week if I was United

Yep. He’s been 20 years old for the last 7 seasons.

He got Ajax DNA. That is Barça’s Genesis.

Frankie is better than La Masia products of the last decade.

They have been labeling him as a cross between Cryuff and Modric.

England’s backline is shambolic

It was a hell of a save by Pickford. I think the rebound is going wide if Walker doesn't fuck it up.

Better team won. Thankfully that was Holland, neither team looked or played as well as they could. Both teams are in great shape for the next 8 years.
