Welcome back, darras. ^^

Also--will work on a reply for this game sometime today or tomorrow!


Sorry about the continued wait, guys. RL has not been pretty at the moment, so I'll try to post when I can in the IC.

I'm really sorry guys.  Stupidly busy at work and quitting a 30/40 a day smoking habit has left me feeling shitty and with no concentration at all, really struggling to string posts together.  I'm aware I'm holding everything up, and I'll be with it as soon as I possibly can, I promise.

Very sorry

Considering it took me what, two weeks-ish to figure out my last IC post, I don't think you're holding things up. ^^;

Some of that honor belongs to me. I iz slow poster.

No worries, Kythia.  Real life always comes first.   We're all pulling for you that you beat the grip of nasty icky nicotine.

Likewise no worries! Real life happens and kicking cigarettes is a bitch and a half..

Holy fucking shit, we have forward motion.  Sorry about that guys and thanks for bearing with me.  Back to normal now, or at least until the World Cup.

So so.  Chocolate, Church, beer and Moyes is gone but we went down 2-1 to the giant killing machine that is fucking Swansea.  I can't reliably point to Swansea on a map (well, I can, I just refuse to) and they beat us.

The positive side to Swansea is that they are slightly less Welsh than the rest of Wales. Still, no less humiliating I assume ;)

Oooh is that a new avatar Remiel? Or have I just been really inattentive.. Either way, it's real nice.

Thanks!  It's the same person as before (Colin O'Donoghue, who plays Captain Hook / Killean Jones from Once Upon a Time) but I think this avi is much sexier, wouldn't you agree?

This again?  I keep telling you, you're using the phrase Group of Death wrong. Group B has much better teams and Group D much harder games, there isn't really a true Group of Death this cup. We've been through this several times already haven't we?

Pfffft. Chile, while good, is not the world power that Brazil and Argentina are; and while Costa Rica and Uruguay are plucky, you lot should have no trouble defeating them.

We, meanwhile, have to face juggernauts Germany, Portugal (with arguably the #1 player in the world), and Ghana, who beat us the last two World Cup outings.  You might argue that the United States is not the same calibre as South America or Europe, and you'd probably be right, except we won CONCACAAF handily.

All that tells us is that the US isn't (yet) good enough to guarantee a place in the final 16.  You're not in a group of death, you're just slightly outmatched by the competition.  The point is, no one outside of the Portuguese, Americans and Ghanese thinks the World Cup would be harmed by the absence of those countries in the final 16.  Its a crap shoot for a second place that no one cares about. 

Being beaten twice by Ghana makes you bad, not Ghana good (they're sat 37th in the ELO rankings).  Might as well point out that Australia have been beaten by Iran.  The exact same split as the Group G teams could be had from Croatia, Czechia, Australia and Norway.  Look at it in those terms.  Croatia would obviously go through and there would be a toss up between Czechia and Australia.  Doesn't make it a tough group, makes it a group with one world class team, two on the high side of mediocre and one on the low side.

Every nation always thinks they have the hardest group - the English press is saying exactly the same thing.  The issue with your group is that you're not quite good enough to guarantee a place, not that the group is hard. 

There isn't a Group of Death this cup.  There doesn't have to be one, it's entirely random.

Oh and incidentally - you heard it here first:

We go out 2-1 to the Netherlands on 4/7 (I have tickets for that match, actually.  Last one before we come home).  Spain win.
