Hi,

I know this is a miniatures forum but at the moment we have the wc in South Africa and this is such a great temptation to post lots of non miniature topics.

I thought it might be a good idea to open a World Cup thread where we post all relevant topics and the football lunatics among the wargamers might share there thoughts and concerns ( English Goal Keeper ) in this thread only.

It may also help the moderators !

Thank you
Bjrn

"Joachim Low's side showed everyone how the game should be played with this impressive four-goal thumping of 10-man Australia.

And it completed a weekend of misery for all English fans."

Why do I always look forward to the World Cup, when I know what will happen every time  Angry

Well done to Germany. To be fair they had won the game before Cahill was sent off.

They look like real contenders, again  Roll Eyes

As opposed to the existing, three page World Cup thread also on this board?

Yep, but this is the only official World Cup Thread at the LAF  Wink
The others just talk about Anthems and counting the days to WC and people already start talking about politics. This one is for football only.

Besides...Netherlands Denmark 0 : 0

I expected the Dutch to be better.

Netherlands 2  Denmark 0

I think that was hard work for the tulips

Well done to Germany, from a disgruntled Aussie (last time I get up at 4.30am to watch a game!).

Totally outclassed, and we had such high hopes.

The better half was born in Germany, so I can still claim a victory.

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi - oh I give up!

And there I was thinking how well we all got on so well  Cheesy

I'm currently praying that we win our group if the germans do or come second if the germans do (which I can't see)

Germany will only get better and we haven't really got going yet although I thought USA played well but we should have had enough to win. Onto friday and that must win game  Cheesy

It makes a refreshing change for the Aussies to be only average at a sport. Mind you, they could still beat England at football  Laugh

I'm just hoping to see Chris Wood (West Bromwich Albion's NZ striker) score a goal or two. For a young 'un, 'e ay arf good! *

WBA trainer was a former SS Lazio star. Love

well must admit that in some sports we could not start beaten, we have never bet AllBlack, Aussie, South Africa, England at rugby, but we can beat them at football.

Is SS Lazio so named because it was Mussolini's club or because the players like giving fascist salutes to the crowd? Questions I once posed to an ex-girlfriend's father, a Lazio fan, to which I never received an adequate reply... Wink

The Germany -Australia game was entirely predicatable. The excitement of actually making it beyond the group stage last time seems to have queered most Australians' sense of perspective. Cahill was unlucky but he should have realised Schweinsteiger would make a meal of any tackle. Didn't matter anyway, the Socceroos were never going to come back from 2-0 down.Well played Germany.

Well, he's only very young but has great potential and he won't win the golden boot award at this world cup. I think he will be a star in the future and I'm hoping he will do well in the Premier League  Smiley


WBA trainer was a former SS Lazio star. Love

You mean the wonderful Roberto Di Matteo?  Not only a truly great player, but a talented coach and he could be Italy's coach in the near future. If he keeps WBA in the Premier, then I expect all sorts of big clubs to try and sign him  Sad
