    It's a thread for people watching the world cup, you can't work out that people might post about what is happening in the world cup?

    its a thread for people watching the WC that specifically talks about games minute by minute rather than a thread discussing games within the WC on a minute by minute basis so as games in the WC are being discussed on a minute by minute basis rather than the WC and games being played in itbbeing discussed it needs a spoiler title.

    Just like the Giro/T deF/Vuelta innit?

    Didn't they win the opening game 6-1 in the last world cup?

    pleasantly surprised how well England have started. Nice blend of youth and experience. Not interested in “It’s coming home’ nonsense, just enjoying the performance. Is that ok?

    Yup okay. That was game 2.

    All a bit easy this one. Feel bad because losing the goalie really seems tonhave unsettled Iran.

    I know the offside rule changes all the time but how is a player not offside when he is behind the final defender and runs across the eye line of the keeper just as a shot is coming in?
  • Dorset_BoyDorset_Boy Posts: 5,713
    Maguire once again demonstrates he doesn't know how to defend....
  • First.AspectFirst.Aspect Posts: 11,491
    I'm going to say the Iranian no 2 goalie is about as good as a sack of potatoes.
  • ProssPross Posts: 34,823
    He hasn’t had much chance. The defence is shite.

    Yeah but he needs to know that not moving before the opponent shoots only applies to penalties.
  • Iran aren't mugs, England are just several levels above them in terms of the technical ability of our players, tactics and coaching. For all the usual rubbish about Southgate that your average England fan spouts, he knows his players and his tournament record is excellent. He has an outstanding group of young players, some very good experience and lots of attacking options. When they play with this attacking freedom and intent (regardless of opposition) England are objectively one of the 3 or 4 best teams in international football.
  • Who mentioned 6-1?
  • Dorset_BoyDorset_Boy Posts: 5,713
    Where did the 10 minutes stoppage time in the second half come from?
    26 minutes of stoppage time in the match?
  • I haven't been paying full attention, but 10 mins seems a lot.

    England player head injury plus the usual 4 or 5 minutes for subs and general mincing about

    Maguire? There's nothing between his ears anyway, but didn't think it took them long to realise that!

    How many were added on last night? This has the whiff of something FIFA have told the referees. They do tend to do something at every tournament to make sure no one knows the rules any more.
  • ProssPross Posts: 34,823
    That’s crazy. I hate shirt pulling but if you give that then every corner or free kick is a penalty.
  • First.AspectFirst.Aspect Posts: 11,491
    Aw bless, someone's told the ref to give them a consolation penalty for running out of energy in the box.
