Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

France held-off the potent Belgian attack. It will be interesting to see if Croatia have the energy and creativity to score, especially after having gone three games in a row to 120 mins. It's been quite a Spring-Summer for Lovren, Modric (CRO) and Varane (FRA): the UEFA Champions League Final and ...

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

The moral final today; France vs Belgium. The two best teams of the tournament square off in the first semifinal. The winner tonight will almost certainly win gold. The English team is a smarter team, and more of a team, then they usually send, but despite this, I don't think they have what it take...

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

Oh, I LOVE this world cup! Most of the arrogant powers of football either never made it in or are now out. Those floppy Brazilian floppers and Oscar nominated actors fall to Belgium 2-1. Parity is beautiful. Go Team Ikea! I know there have been some shock upsets and many people have been clamouring...

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

I actually like Sweden's chances. I agree with you. I hadn't seen England play before the last game so it's difficult to gauge how they actually play but nothing from that game indicates to me that they should be the favourite among the 4 in their bracket to advance. They are young yes but I don't ...

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

England through but not a very good game. We're preparing for Brexit on Saturday! :drink: :lol: Well you better hope my prediction comes true! (I previously said England would sneak by Colombia only to lose to Sweden... mostly because English fans seemed most concerned with Colombia) I get my citiz...

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

Am I the only one wondering where Snowy (Milou in French) is during games? https://talksport.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/5/2016/04/447sixbest4.jpg?strip=all&w=700 Setting up the winning goal :lol: Just when I thought I'd seen the game of the tournament, there's even more drama. Tough break for Jap...

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

https://www.facebook.com/COPA90/videos/1750178648400602/ Great video! :lol: Missed today's game but Spain were underwhelming this tournament. Actually all 4 of the most cited favourites have looked anything but invincible. This World Cup reminds me a lot of 2002 - only difference is I hated that Wo...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

I don’t mind the Moj, he is actually the one trying to drive the relevant sports talk while all Taylor wants to do is talk Seinfeld, celebrity news, Gene Kininski, New Westminster Salmonbellies lacrosse and all things 1970’s. Taylor needs to remove himself from sports talk, he was done when Sports ...

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

I found Portugal lacking creativity in today’s game. Too predictable, I like open play, long balls up the wing or middle. Uruguay has arguably the best defence in the tournament and it was a matchup of two teams which play similar counter attacking styles. Maybe it's a case of lowered expectations ...

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

Hoping the Spaniards will win, as I find Christiano Ronaldo rather intolerable. Sure, he's a great footballer, but damn is he full of himself. and he plays for Real to boot. You a Barca fan by any chance? :lol: In all seriousness sad to see what is likely the last World Cup for both Messi and Ronal...

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

This has been a sensational World Cup. Best I can remember! Of course the collision course that was Ronaldo vs Messi never was! Not too surprising as most pundits picked France and Uruguay but nevertheless, those were two great games, especially the France Argentina one. I still can't get over all o...

Re: Pick Your Winners. All rounds.

8/8 First round 0/4 Second round.... Ouch! Guess I'll just go with who I want to win now Washington in 7 Winnipeg in 6 1 for 2 last round. At least I got Caps in correct number of games. I'll go Caps in 6 for the win! I want the Caps to win but I guess it's a good story either way. I'm not thrilled...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

Meh... not one of those guys has established himself as fuck all. Wake me up when he wins a trade outright. Like steals a legit top 4 D or a legit top 6 forward. Two of those guys can barely hang with a team that’s bottom 3 in the league and one hasn’t suited up for a game yet. I agree with your ge...
