six rounds mate
Messi is really deep in some of these games.
Neither team has the personnel to play any different to this...
If only Aguero was even vaguely fit...
Penalties then ?
Play this and Dirk will score.....
I can feel it coming aint gonna be no rematch
Look, it's Masch telling them again.
Van Gaal's hair looked like a Karl Lagerfeld creation in that shot.
Quite. But only Germany would fancy their chances of winning consecutive games on penalties - but that's not a concern for them this time.
Has any team every won through 2 rounds on penalties in a major tournament? I can't think of one, but it might have happened.
He went down like a tin of corn beef off the side of a dutch barge
You can find the stats on the distances covered. Midfielders, who usually cover the most groung, average about 10-11kms IIRC
A single player doesent have to sprint long distances as often as you may think. Most of the distace covered is done at a light jog -especially when going up for and returning from corners a lot.
Good stamina is the key attribute. Not long legs ;-)
that seems quite long enough to me! ((mylittleshortlegs))
I never understand why teams continue to be this conservative in extra time. Your chance if you go for it is surely no worse than the 50-50 chance you have of winning a shoot out
I remember in 2006 when the real Ronaldo distance stat came up on the screen and all the other players on the pitch had run between 9 and 12 km. Ronaldo had done 2.6.
Total speculation, but I suppose with penalties there's the idea that "ah well, it's mostly luck", whereas if you go for it and then concede you're perceived as having made a mistake, you got your tactics wrong and paid the price.
I guess it's the fear of being the chump that made the mistake that let the other team score.
I thought this was 'Teh Best World Cup Eva' ® ?
Most folk who run 10K are doing it a constant-ish pace and all in the same direction. And no-ones taking their legs from under them. The twist, turn, sprint, jog, turn, sprint, clatter thing must wear at the joints.
If you're bored look at @thepoke on Twitter. Loads of pictures of Messi awkwardly modelling underwear. God knows where they've come from. God knows how I will ever sleep again.
If anyone ever asks me to compare myself to a footballer I will say Ronaldo. This is totally what I would do.
Argentina have the best manager in the competition the way he marched back to his chair there was pure class
Palacio's doctor getting a diazepam prescription ready. A lifetime of poor nights sleep ahead.
Shaped up for a classic moment there didn't it. Great stuff by gravity's Leo Messi. Maxi fluffed it after shaping up gorgeously.
Worry if your hair's in place?
still at work Lord Camomile?
Last DLR home is 00:32, so shouldn't have to night bus it. Thank God I'm on the late shift again tomorrow
God. I just want to go to bed.
i bet you didnt catch that one with the mute button ed
