Re: The 2018 FIFA World Cup

Well, I asked for an entertaining final, and it appears that I got one :) Well done to France, who were magnificent at times, and lucky at others. Croatia surprised me with just how well they opened the game, but luck wasn't with them decision wise. I thought the penalty and free kick were good deci...

Re: The 2018 FIFA World Cup

So...... We come down to the final - two great teams - France and Croatia! ....and while we're there, as we come to the end of a truly fantastic tournament which as a neutral I have enjoyed every minute of..... how about a round of applause for Belgium and England, who both added so much quality foo...

Re: Stop the censorship-machinery! Save the Internet!

Democracy in action can also be dangerous when you have demogoges in power. See the sitting US president for reference material. :End Rant: Democracy depends on educated people that have got enough free time to analyse the political consequences of their decisions. Thus be weary of politicians and ...

Re: Stop the censorship-machinery! Save the Internet!

To me all of this including Trump is not a support of their policies but just the people crossing the most outrageous thing on their ballot because it's all piles of shit anyway. You wanna know the really hilarious (in a disturbing sort of way) thing about Trump? He consistently said throughout his...

Re: Stop the censorship-machinery! Save the Internet!

Absolutely. It's worth noting though, that Trump has laid bare to the world all the problems of contemporary America, and in a way that is difficult to doubt. His real usefulness is in the backlash that he is generating. You are correct....but he’s ruined my ideal of America. Even as a child born i...

Re: The 2018 FIFA World Cup

....and then there were four!!! I've loved every minute of this tournament, but I'm growing ever more bewildered as to who will win the thing. I'm going to say at this stage that the only team I think that will not win it is Croatia. They've had a lot more time on the pitch, and against mentally dra...

Re: The 2018 FIFA World Cup

Just gonna repeat my FB post here as it needs to be said :) One of the best halves of football I’ve ever seen (between Belgium and Japan). Such a shame to see Japan going out, they truly are an example of how players should conduct themselves on the field; it’s tragic that they only got to the last ...

Yup, I give all credit to Russia for getting the result, but surely this is as far as they can go? It’s now 52 years since the last time a host nation had a questionable win. 😀

Re: Stop the censorship-machinery! Save the Internet!

This is a lie propagated by right-wing politicians in the UK which has filtered down into the US. The European Parliament is fully democratic and the legal institutions which it appoints have the same legitimacy as the US Supreme Court and it's tributaries. As part of the "Brexit" campaign in the U...

Re: The 2018 FIFA World Cup

So effectively, what we learned tonight is that if England meet Belgium in the final, then Belgium will have proveably better substitutes. :D Bit of a brass eye for Fellaini too, actually still being in the team when everyone else got the night off pretty much. :D :D :D Soooooo, prediction time.

Th EU has a good track record of actually improving laws after they have been implemented. IMO it‘s about time the governments of this world get into these topics with actual legislation.

Re: The 2018 FIFA World Cup

My national team, Denmark, made it through to the knockout stage today. It has not been pretty, and if we want to take anything home, a lot of people have to up their game. Christian Eriksen has been a shadow of his usual self, Nikolaj Jørgensen has had 1 (one) good action in 2 games and Pione Sist...

Belgian, all the way. Only because Oranje isn't present and they're our language buddies (well, half is). Great team although the defense is still lacking a bit I must admit that I've been very impressed Belgium for a few years now. Gotta be said that it would be a bit messed up if Belgium won the ...
