    The Croatian fans smashed up all the toilets at the Arena Corinthians so any England fans going may want to take a piss before arriving for the match. Almost 15% (about 25 million) of Brazilians support the Corinthians so they haven't done themselves any favors for the naturals to give them any support in their next matches.

    Went for a Father's Day drink with my dad, and in the pub's garden I saw this poster. It's almost as if Carlsberg knew someone wouldn't be making the trip to Rio...

    ALL the toilets? I find that hard to believe

    Yes even the ones they didn't have access to :rolleyes:

    E2a They may have already been repaired :eek: it was meant as gossip or chitter-chatter rather than news.

    I think this is turning into my favourite World Cup since 1982.

    Early days though.
    It is a cup of two halves.

    I don't know if it's the different pundits or something else, but on both BBC and ITV it's seemed much more conversational in the studio and thus more interesting.

    I appreciate that on stuff like MotD they've only got around two minutes a game, but even for live matches it doesn't seem the same as at this tournament. More of this sort of thing!

    FIFA investigating racist/homophobic supporter actions for four teams :(


    Wonder what FIFA will do, if anything?

    Any of these three are going to be cruel punishments ^

    If we accept that corporations will insist on comp VIP tickets before parting with their cash to sponsor major tournaments, couldn't FIFA/UEFA/the FA at least insist those tickets had to have a (hefty) deposit put on them, which would be refunded once the tickets had actually been used?

    And you have to arrive before the k/o of both halves too :mad:

    A bit of quality satire on FIFA. Spot on from Clarke and Dawe :)

    Well done FIFA and the refs. Not many bookings, lots of tackles you might previously have expected to see yellow cards dished out have been let go. Result - the much more free flowing games.

    Also, much less diving about? Or am I imaging it?

    Please someone tell me the whole 'football shorts halfway down the arse' look is simply an unhappy coincidence and not what I suspect it it - a deliberate statement :hmm: Good fucking grief :facepalm:

    Uruguay forward Luis Suarez has been banned for nine matches and banned for four months "from any football activity" after biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini.
