    Urgh. As much as I like VAR being a part of games I really hate the players running up to the referee and making TV signals every single time there is a contentious decision to be made.

    I think they should start making that a yellow card, similar to how the booking gesture is.

    I'm sure I read it's supposed to be a yellow card offence. If not, it definitely should be. Players need to **** right off with it.

  2. If you think Argentina's issues are because of Messi you're an idiot.

    Although on the other hand, if you think Messi is doing everything he can you're an idiot.

    He is trying, he is dropping deep to try and get the ball and influence the game, but he sure as hell isn't playing well. 

  3. Why is the teamsheet news? What is in the public interest about taking a sneaky shot of the teamsheet when it's clearly not meant to be revealed? It's a underhanded tactic just to try and get a few more clicks and is totally wrong. Public interest is completely different to something the public are interested in.

    Revealing the teamsheet like that gives the opposition an advantage, there's no two ways about it. With it being Panama it won't make much difference but that doesn't mean it's remotely ok. 

    They're there to report news, good and bad, but leaking a teamsheet undermines the team and there's no justification for it, especially considering the good grace they've been shown by the FA and the team.

    The press in this country are vile. They're secretly hoping we fail so they can print their agenda. 

    Probably got their headlines written out already.

    Yeah, can see them turning now Southgate has called them out on their ********. The amount of journos tweeting righteous indignation, "how dare Southgate criticise us!" Absolute set of pricks, trying to defend it as though people have a right to know team news, as though it's public interest.

    Just came across this tweet: 


    I mean, how ridiculous a comparison can you get? Although I agree with the point that Panama knowing who starts between Sterling/Rashford shouldn't make a difference, but it doesn't make it right to leak team news.

    Have Brazil just won the World Cup? No, but we've just scored an injury time winner against the mighty Costa Rica. :rolleyes:

    I don't understand the notion that teams can't celebrate important last minute goals, just because it's not as important as the world cup winning goal.

    A draw would have seen them in big trouble, of course they're gonna celebrate the goal especially with it coming last minute ffs

    I don't think it makes any difference in practice. The main job of a captain at the Brazilian national team is to lift the trophy in the end. Otherwise one can be a leader without being captain.

    I think we massively overrate the importance of captaincy in this country. As you've said, leaders lead, regardless of the armband.

    Even now Portugal being lauded is ********, they have a mess of a team and people are posting expecting Iran to beat them yet now they have a plan and better players simply to counter Messi's incompetence :thdn:

    Do you think Portugal has less of a cohesive plan that Argentina? Did you just watch Argentina?

    I'm usually pro Ronaldo if anything but there is no way Ronaldo or any other single player could do anything for this Argentina team in its current setup. Its absolutely appalling from front to back.

    Think this sums it up. "Messi simply needed to perform a little bit" ffs :D
