You want to believe in a host team brimming with talent, but choke potential is high

abcfsk, Friday, 7 June 2019 07:23 (two months ago) link

always root for france, to no avail. shanice van de sanden was fantastic in the champs lge final and is v fun to watch so would like to see the netherlands do well especially as van de donk is class as well.

I’ve never seen a good football opening ceremony

abcfsk, Friday, 7 June 2019 18:41 (two months ago) link

This song.. is not my kind of song

abcfsk, Friday, 7 June 2019 18:41 (two months ago) link

Yeah I'm just waiting on the game itself.

Ned Raggett, Friday, 7 June 2019 18:47 (two months ago) link

this year I am supporting the goalkeepers of all nations. may they show their fast-improving skill and avoid disaster at all turns

imago, Friday, 7 June 2019 19:00 (two months ago) link

Obvious I know but goalkeeping is always gonna look poor in the women's game cos the goals are too big

oscar bravo, Friday, 7 June 2019 19:05 (two months ago) link

Watching a French team without Necib doesn't seem right. No Abily either I think. At least le sommer is still there.

oscar bravo, Friday, 7 June 2019 19:10 (two months ago) link

Speak of the devil

oscar bravo, Friday, 7 June 2019 19:11 (two months ago) link

Easy

abcfsk, Friday, 7 June 2019 19:14 (two months ago) link

Oh boy, our first VAR, yay rah

Ned Raggett, Friday, 7 June 2019 19:32 (two months ago) link

Still not convinced that getting decisions right is worth it tbh

oscar bravo, Friday, 7 June 2019 19:33 (two months ago) link

Anticlimax king VAR

abcfsk, Friday, 7 June 2019 19:36 (two months ago) link

woof! quality header

alomar lines, Friday, 7 June 2019 19:38 (two months ago) link

someone should think about marking renard

alomar lines, Friday, 7 June 2019 19:51 (two months ago) link

Honestly just treating the second half as an extended cut remix.

Ned Raggett, Friday, 7 June 2019 20:34 (two months ago) link

Yeah we needed that Henry goal just to give the 2nd half some color

abcfsk, Friday, 7 June 2019 20:46 (two months ago) link

Germany team seems to have changed a lot from the last time I remember following them. Only players I can recall are marozsan and popp.

oscar bravo, Saturday, 8 June 2019 12:57 (two months ago) link

Oh and dabritz

oscar bravo, Saturday, 8 June 2019 12:59 (two months ago) link

China completely fucked up that transition. Should have been a goal. All stemming from a criminally bad square pass. Houillier will be getting ginola flashbacks.

oscar bravo, Saturday, 8 June 2019 13:16 (two months ago) link

Germany running out of ideas here. Need one of the centre backs to step into midfield occasionally.

oscar bravo, Saturday, 8 June 2019 13:41 (two months ago) link

China off the post. Germany look completely shook at the back.

oscar bravo, Saturday, 8 June 2019 13:45 (two months ago) link

Frustrated German team. Lack a strategy in the box

abcfsk, Saturday, 8 June 2019 13:57 (two months ago) link

fuck is this referee doing, that's two fks against china in two minutes for completely fair tackles

imago, Saturday, 8 June 2019 14:09 (two months ago) link

just straight up gave germany a free-kick when their player dragged down the chinese one

imago, Saturday, 8 June 2019 14:24 (two months ago) link

chinese players got away with murder in the first half tho

abcfsk, Saturday, 8 June 2019 14:28 (two months ago) link

bad refereeing both ways is still bad refereeing!

good hit for the german goal

imago, Saturday, 8 June 2019 14:30 (two months ago) link

Spain pretty lucky. 1-0 down for most of the game and out of jail thanks to two penalties.

ShariVari, Saturday, 8 June 2019 17:46 (two months ago) link

Caroline Graham Hansen best in the world 1v1 possibly

abcfsk, Saturday, 8 June 2019 20:04 (two months ago) link

var strikes again. italy 'goal' off a beautiful through ball ruled out on the tightest of margins. i assume australia are favourites here but italy have started well.

oscar bravo, Sunday, 9 June 2019 11:15 (two months ago) link

pen to aus

oscar bravo, Sunday, 9 June 2019 11:20 (two months ago) link

scored on rebound

oscar bravo, Sunday, 9 June 2019 11:22 (two months ago) link

Offside is fucking ridiculous now. May as well ban forward passes.

Bash Street Kids: Endgame (Bananaman Begins), Sunday, 9 June 2019 12:00 (two months ago) link

terrible defending but that's a calm dribble and finish from the italy #11.
probably jinx her but the italian goalie has looked impressively assured.

oscar bravo, Sunday, 9 June 2019 12:16 (two months ago) link

Deep women's football cut: Sam, Kerr Ladies

Bash Street Kids: Endgame (Bananaman Begins), Sunday, 9 June 2019 12:25 (two months ago) link

feel like the nu-var era we are in where ref assistants can't flag for offside until the attacking phase is completed is changing the game in some fundamental way that i can't articulate but am uneasy with.

oscar bravo, Sunday, 9 June 2019 12:34 (two months ago) link

Oh fucking hell. That one was slightly offside tbf, but even a legit close offside now feels like its ruining the game.

Bash Street Kids: Endgame (Bananaman Begins), Sunday, 9 June 2019 12:40 (two months ago) link

australia play with such a stupidly high line that every game they play will have like 5 var reviews.
tbf all the initial decisions by the on field officials have been proved correct. i'd probably prefer the law to be if any of the attackers body is onside then they are onside rahter than if any of their body is offside then they're offside.

oscar bravo, Sunday, 9 June 2019 12:51 (two months ago) link

italy winner 5th minute of stoppage time!!

oscar bravo, Sunday, 9 June 2019 12:53 (two months ago) link

Well deserved!

ShariVari, Sunday, 9 June 2019 12:55 (two months ago) link

Yay! As noted by the bbc commentator, australia didn't seem to get the 'no diving in womens football' memo

Bash Street Kids: Endgame (Bananaman Begins), Sunday, 9 June 2019 12:57 (two months ago) link

Glad I caught the last ten minutes of that.

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 9 June 2019 13:02 (two months ago) link

Barbara Bonansea was destined for a great tournament

abcfsk, Sunday, 9 June 2019 13:07 (two months ago) link

Think Australia will win the next two and go through but

a) a bit sloppy/nervous today
b) think they're slightly overrated in general / have had messy behind the scenes stuff disrupt preparations
c) their troubles in defense are well known

abcfsk, Sunday, 9 June 2019 13:07 (two months ago) link

Not a bad match between Brazil and Jamaica but that second Christiane goal probably seals it.

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 9 June 2019 14:41 (two months ago) link

If this hour long BBC puff piece on 'England's World Cup Lionesses' doesn't fire up the Scottish nation to get 100% behind Scotland's women's team I don't know what can.

John Harris is a Guardian columnist (Tom D.), Sunday, 9 June 2019 14:53 (two months ago) link

... ah, they aren't showing it in Scotland! Wise move.

John Harris is a Guardian columnist (Tom D.), Sunday, 9 June 2019 14:55 (two months ago) link

wow bbc inflicting y'all, hope solo in an evening gown

alomar lines, Sunday, 9 June 2019 15:56 (two months ago) link

lol at this being comfortably the worst opening 20 minutes of any team in a tournament where one game finished 13-0

wot's the tea mum? (not beef again) (DJ Mencap), Saturday, 6 July 2019 15:26 (one month ago) link

Game back on.

ShariVari, Saturday, 6 July 2019 15:31 (one month ago) link

lmao 2-2

wot's the tea mum? (not beef again) (DJ Mencap), Saturday, 6 July 2019 15:33 (one month ago) link

That escalated quickly!

ShariVari, Saturday, 6 July 2019 15:33 (one month ago) link

class will out ;)

imago, Saturday, 6 July 2019 15:34 (one month ago) link

Oh no, VAR

A VAR Cry from Kensington

Vini C. Riley (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 6 July 2019 15:36 (one month ago) link

That second Sweden goal was a classy finish

. (Michael B), Saturday, 6 July 2019 15:46 (one month ago) link

stfu Dion Dublin, it was a handball

. (Michael B), Saturday, 6 July 2019 15:59 (one month ago) link

England are just too good to win

Polly Toynbee OK (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 6 July 2019 16:44 (one month ago) link

Love a goal line clearance.

ShariVari, Saturday, 6 July 2019 16:51 (one month ago) link

Hup!

ShariVari, Sunday, 7 July 2019 15:00 (one month ago) link

optimistic about the 2nd half. Yankees will be getting scared now.

Ludo, Sunday, 7 July 2019 15:52 (one month ago) link

The Dutch have done well so far.

Orpheus Knutt (Tom D.), Sunday, 7 July 2019 15:53 (one month ago) link

Waiting on that 7-0 scoreline imago predicted though.

Orpheus Knutt (Tom D.), Sunday, 7 July 2019 15:54 (one month ago) link

Dutch have done very well

Fuck Trump, cops, and the CBP (Neanderthal), Sunday, 7 July 2019 15:57 (one month ago) link

Here we go. VAR.

Orpheus Knutt (Tom D.), Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:18 (one month ago) link

wtf with this automatic booking of players who accidentally give away penalties

Orpheus Knutt (Tom D.), Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:19 (one month ago) link

Good call. High foot

Fuck Trump, cops, and the CBP (Neanderthal), Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:21 (one month ago) link

I think it was reckless enough for a yellow

Fuck Trump, cops, and the CBP (Neanderthal), Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:21 (one month ago) link

:D

i will never make a typo ever again (Karl Malone), Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:23 (one month ago) link

Rapinoe's "ta-daaaa!" pose destined to become a standard celebration for an entire generation of kids

Fuck it. Not watching this.

Orpheus Knutt (Tom D.), Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:28 (one month ago) link

Lavelle!!!

Fuck Trump, cops, and the CBP (Neanderthal), Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:28 (one month ago) link

Deserved a goal. She has been great.

ShariVari, Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:29 (one month ago) link

Very well taken

I want to change my display name (dan m), Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:29 (one month ago) link

I love it.

Yerac, Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:29 (one month ago) link

So many superstars on this team.

Yerac, Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:31 (one month ago) link

I was happy Lavelle scored. Wouldn’t have been happy with winning 1-0 on a penalty.

Regardless, crazy amount of skill from the entire team here

John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt, Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:38 (one month ago) link

I also really like the Netherlands in general, actually, so it’s such a treat to watch this game

John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt, Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:40 (one month ago) link

Deserved win of course. Too bad VAR had to secure it. Otoh they would have scored at some point.

Ludo, Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:41 (one month ago) link

giving the Dutch keeper WOTM in the 86th minute is tempting fate

wot's the tea mum? (not beef again) (DJ Mencap), Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:47 (one month ago) link

Not really too bad that VAR spotted a chest-high assault that the ref missed. Xp

Hope theh snub Trump now

or something, Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:47 (one month ago) link

Yeah that challenge really should have been picked up by the ref in the first place. Stonewall peno

. (Michael B), Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:49 (one month ago) link

otm

I want to change my display name (dan m), Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:51 (one month ago) link

think she was unsighted for it

wot's the tea mum? (not beef again) (DJ Mencap), Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:52 (one month ago) link

Definitely. Just wanted to see a non-penalty goal that is more about play and strategy

John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt, Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:52 (one month ago) link

I love Rapinoe. She's cultivated a lack of fucks to give that more women require earlier on in age.

Yerac, Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:54 (one month ago) link

Did anyone from the US WH attend?

Yerac, Sunday, 7 July 2019 16:55 (one month ago) link

Rose Lavelle looks v classy btw

or something, Sunday, 7 July 2019 17:02 (one month ago) link

xp --

The White House on Wednesday said in a statement that the president will send a delegation to France for the Women's World Cup final on Sunday, where the USWNT will face the winner of Wednesday's Netherlands-Sweden semifinal.

Six women make up the group. They are: Karen Dunn Kelley, Deputy Secretary of Commerce; Jamie D. McCourt, U.S. Ambassador to France and Monaco; Josephine K. Olsen, director of the Peace Corps; Seema Verma, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; Marie Royce, Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs; Shauna Rohbock, U.S. Army National Guard and former pro soccer player, and Kelly Loeffler, CEO of Bakkt and co-owner of the Atlanta Dream.

thx. we were looking for them to point them out (if anyone). I saw Macron. We couldn't get subtitles in english and my french sucks.

Yerac, Sunday, 7 July 2019 17:05 (one month ago) link

We were calling Lavelle - Rory. xpost

Yerac, Sunday, 7 July 2019 17:06 (one month ago) link

Macron's dishing out the trophies.

Rapinoe's World Cup has to be up there with the greatest all-time talk-and-back-it-up performances in sports history. Tangle with a President and win World Cup and MVP? A socially conscious athlete pilloried for patriotism? No one will *ever* be Ali, but there's Ali in Rapinoe.

Seriously, "I ain't going to the fuckin White House" is perhaps my favorite thing an athlete has said.

Fuck Trump, cops, and the CBP (Neanderthal), Sunday, 7 July 2019 23:31 (one month ago) link

Rose Lavelle looks like an adorable high school student yet plays like a complete badass. I like how she wears her socks pulled up over her knees.

Virginia Plain, Monday, 8 July 2019 01:05 (one month ago) link

this ticket tape parade in NYC is very heartwarming.
