  1. I don't get what you're hinting at. So after they broke up that game went erased from all memory?
  2. Weird that from Euro 2000 nobody mentioned the incredible Yugoslavia - Slovenia game with Yugoslavia equalizing in the final 20 minutes after being 0-3 down. Zlatko Zahovič was amazing in that tournament. (has a son now playing for Heerenveen) Another player that really stood out during the championship was Nuno Gomes from Portugal. And ofcourse Kluivert scoring for fun.
  3. Agreed that would be everyones favorite line-up I think. With obviously Hazard, Lukaku or Origi, Carrasco up front.
  4. Oh wait. Is this a football song? (Euro 2000 as well IRC)
  5. E-Type - Campione 2000 and Jlo's (back when she was still Jennifer Lopez) "Let's Get Loud" hold a special place in my heart. Although I admit its more due to the nostalgia factor rather than being good songs. The Anastacia and Nelly Furtado songs were bollocks though. (or were those World Cup songs? I forgot)
  6. Oh c'mon. Is it even possible to be 'world class' in a qualifying round with (all due respect) Macedonia, Wales, Scotland, Croatia and Serbia. Neither of these team are world beaters. Although I'm sure those 2 Macedonian breadbakers are still having nightmares of 2 big ass afro's heading their way. Also I dare say Witsel's way of constantly slowing down the game was already apparent 4 years ago. The only difference between now and then was that back then we were coming out of the dark ages and we were totally in awe of all that possession. We were so accustomed to losing again the likes of Kazachstan, we we're thrilled by all those (scrappy 1-0) wins. However I do agree that our current line up with 3 defensive midfielders is very counter-productive for his type of play and exposes his weaknesses even more. But let's be honest, if you had to choose only one defensive midfielder and the choice was between Witsel, Dembele or Nainggolan. You'd always pick the 2 latter ones right?
  7. It's pretty odd I can remeber EC2000, WC2002, EC2004, WC2006, WC2010 and WC2014 still very vivdly. But the EC2008 and 2012 or two big nothings in my mind. I really had to google where they were happening and who won them. I probably watched every game though, as I do with every tournament.
  8. Oh remember the same time 2 years ago when you guys were calling Witsel (I think) a world class top 5 defensive midfielder, ready for Real Madrid and better than Xabi Alonso and I was branded as being "too negative" because I didn't agree? I do. Feeling really tempted to look for the discussion now. Edit: oh good times http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/391196-Official-Belgium-aka-The-Red-Devils-thread?p=9687229&viewfull=1#post9687229
  9. From what I gather Jordan Lukaku could be playing in the Premier League next season. Watford is supposedly eying him. Not a bad player. Technically above average. Explosive player good going forward, but I'm having my doubts about his defensive positioning. Considering he's playing in the Belgian League for Oostende he's still relatively untested at a higher level. On-topic: I think our squad looks good imo but our defence is gonna be a problem I fear. Both our centre-halve from the previous World Cup are gone (Kompany injured, Van Buyten retired) and our back-ups for the defensive positions are not quite up to the standard of the rest of the squad. Vermaelen is never gonna be fit for an entire championship, Lombaerts is decent without anything more and Denayer is talented, but he is what he is. A 20-year defender currently playing for Galatasaray. Still has lots to learn and looked a bit shaky against Portugal.
  10. But they're really not aren't they? Not wanting to sound like a sore loser, but they just hang in the back and wait for a counter. Which ofcourse is their good right.
  11. Hear hear! This man's got taste. The way Salma Hayek looked in Desperado (and actually still looks now) is my idea of what comes the closest to perfection.
  12. How many 'Westerners' believe the anti-North Korea propaganda coming through our media? The deaths of the vice president and the singer/lover (who showed up singing on a concert a few weeks later), the supposedly discovery of a unicorn lair, apparently North Korean media outlets reporting on Kim Jong-Il's golf score, all the men being forced to sport a haircut like the great leader etc.. they all turned out to be fake story's fabricated by Western media instead of North Korean indoctrination. I do believe there's some serious propaganda going on over there, but it's probably a lot more subtle and lot less stupid than what our media try to make of it.
  13. Let's be honest, the past years Western propaganda about North Korea is starting to match North Korean propaganda about the West. It's becoming a bit silly. (by which I'm not trying to say that NK is not a fascist state)
  14. If the footballgods are just only Germany should be allowed to win the cup tbh.
  15. Depends from game to game. Some games seem to fly by, others seem to last forever anyway.
  16. James Rodriguez. That's easy. Also been quite a fan of Shaqiri.
  17. It's not a revolutionary tactic tbh. Used to be utilized quite often in the early 00's irc after the 4-4-2 went out of fashion. Than 4-3-3 became the 'it'-tactic for a few years, than the Barcelona false striker thing was the new wonder tactic, now they're going back to the 3-5-2.
  18. Weren't you like actively rooting against us just last night?
  19. I'm fairly sure we drew Holland 0-0 in 98...
  20. I'm not gonna deny we've been (one of) the most boring team(s) on the WC, but scaling new heights... then you're just exaggerating. Also bare in mind our 3 opponents: Algeria had no other intentions against us than parking the bus, Russia was along with us one of the slowest playing teams of the tournament, while against South Korea we had to play the majority of the game with 10 players. I reckon against stronger opponents we might've gathered less points, but we would've played more attractive football.
  21. Pretty tense game this. Penalties would be a pretty awesome conclusion.
  22. Are we talking World Cups or the current World Cup?
