I mean there was a reference to Danish football.




Scott_ -> RE: European football (10/11/2013 10:34:10 AM)

Danish football is no joke.




Professor Moriarty -> RE: European football (10/11/2013 2:25:53 PM)

I definitely thought Olaf was being serious about the Danish football thing.

I know that Real often set him up just so he can get more goals than Messi, but seriously Ronaldo's stats show why I hope he's at the WC. 19 games and 27 goals this season with 4 hat-tricks. I think that world record fee for Bale has just pushed him on a bit more still to show who's the #1 there.





Olaf -> RE: European football (10/11/2013 7:38:35 PM)

the Danish league is a joke, it's all about the Norwegian Tippeligaen. though I really *am* sustained by a feeling of superiority over everyone else.

those are some ridiculous Ronaldo stats. Zlatan got himself a hat trick yesterday too - is Portugal v Sweden next week going to be the greatest one man team showdown in the history of international football?

It should be a very interesting double-header. I had Sweden as my dark horse in the Euros. My figuring was that England were in their group, Italy were aging and if Zlatan could hit a few goals then anything could happen. Sadly, Zlatan only turned up when Sweden were already on their way to the beach, so I'm going for Portugal this time.

Anyone else watching Juve vs. Napoli?




galvatron -> RE: European football (10/11/2013 7:48:09 PM)

Juve 1 up after one minute!!!

Phenomenal save to stop it going to 2 after 8 mins.




MOTH -> RE: European football (10/11/2013 8:56:49 PM)

there are lots of beards in this game.




Professor Moriarty -> RE: European football (10/11/2013 10:09:26 PM)

Pogba with a beauty to round the day off. Convincing win for the Old Lady there.




galvatron -> RE: European football (10/11/2013 10:14:36 PM)

Pirlo's was a mega free kick as well. What a midfield they've got. Pogba, Pirlo and Vidal. All offering different things. Can't believe they got the three of them for 10.5 million Euros and two of them were free!




Professor Moriarty -> RE: European football (23/11/2013 5:36:10 PM)

C'mon hipsters I know you are watching this one. Dortmund looking sharp at home in the early exchangers.




Qwerty Norris -> RE: European football (23/11/2013 6:03:45 PM)

They've never been the strongest at the back, but the amount of injuries there for tonight is a bit of a worry.

Still, they've come into a bit more after a heavy spell of Bayern pressure. Blaz & Reus coming close.

Will be interesting to see the reception for Gotze if he makes an appearance. On a related note, rumour has it Lewandowski to Bayern is close to a done deal? [&:]




galvatron -> RE: European football (23/11/2013 6:59:53 PM)

Inevitable that would happen. Really hoping Dortmund could do it but they've got too many injuries at the back.




OPEN YOUR EYES -> RE: European football (24/11/2013 10:10:44 AM)

B. Dortmund 0 Bayern Munich 3
Was it as one-sided as the result suggests?




galvatron -> RE: European football (24/11/2013 10:35:35 AM)

Not at all. Dortmund just couldn't finish their chances. Bayern dominated possession but created very little. Neuer made a couple of excellent saves. And the 2nd goal went in very late on from a break. I turned it off before the 3rd went in so that must've been stoppage time. Shows why Bayern are a great side as they can win without playing that well.




Professor Moriarty -> RE: European football (27/11/2013 7:01:52 PM)

Gutted, just gutted. That my favourite name in football won't be playing tonight because of injury. Okay, he might sound like he should be a cartoon koala, dressed as a cowboy. But I just love the name Sidney Sam.




directorscut -> RE: European football (27/11/2013 8:33:33 PM)

Viktoria Plzeň playing Man City off the park and got a well deserved equalizer after City got a terrible penalty decision in their favour.

Total cost of squards:

Man City: 380m
Viktoria Plzeň: 4.1m




Professor Moriarty -> RE: European football (27/11/2013 8:52:46 PM)

City have qualified, can't catch Bayern. No surprise they are not really up for it. Which seems to be a criticism of the team that they are not bringing it every game like you need to to win a league, preferring more to turn it on when they want. Don't think Pellegrini will be losing much sleep tonight though.




OPEN YOUR EYES -> RE: European football (27/11/2013 9:29:56 PM)

Oh,that was a nice finish from Nani.




Professor Moriarty -> RE: European football (27/11/2013 9:32:51 PM)

Its odd that I thought Moyes would be prepared and have the motivational skills for Utd to battle to wins in the PL. But I thought his inexperience would see Utd struggling against a more stylish opponent in Europe. And its looking nearly the other way.

AVB will not be happy watching this.

And delighted to see Kagawa having a stormer.

Exactly the same way I thought it would go.But fair play to Moyes and United because they really turned in a lovely one-touch,slick passing display tonight.

No RVP with Rooney up-top and Kagawa in the number 10 role,his strongest role,played really well.

English clubs doing well.[:)]




Qwerty Norris -> RE: European football (9/12/2013 10:50:07 AM)

So the Bundesliga title race looks like it's all over already. Leverkusen have done well to hang in there but I don't see them (or anyone for that matter) being able to keep up with Bayern - second gear against Bremen & a 7-0 win FFS. [8|]

Those injuries for Dortmund have really exposed the frailties in their squad. I worry for them against Marseille on Wednesday, although I reckon Arsenal will do them a massive favour in Naples.




Professor Moriarty -> RE: European football (9/12/2013 11:09:53 AM)

I think this is why I'm never 100% convinced by the reckoning that Klopp would not leave Dortmund. I get the whole thing about building a club. But as much as I do love the Bundesliga, you start each season thinking that it is Bayern's to lose.

Has there ever been an "invincibles" season in Germany as it really looks like Bayern could do that. I've already tipped them to retain the CL. And I think I'm also going to put my money where my mouth is on Germany winning the WC.




Qwerty Norris -> RE: European football (9/12/2013 11:36:27 AM)

Not ever before. Bayern hold the best ever record by only having 1 defeat in the 86/87 campaign and of course last season as well (I think only Leverkusen managed to beat them domestically?)

Their away record is stupidly good as well.

Interesting tip on the Germans. I'm more inclined to go for a South American side but if there was anyone I'd fancy from Europe, it would be them.

Probably the wrong thread, but I guess it is European football. I see Argentina, Brazil, Germany and Spain as the favourites for the WC.

Germany are in a tough group and can be slow starters. And that might see me throwing my money away. But my thinking is that the strong group might help them start playing from the first game, (against Portugal!). Let us assume they top group G. Then they should have a very winnable game against either Russia or S Korea (assuming Belgium win Group H). And this should be followed in the QF by the winner of group E, most likely the Swiss. So, I see this as a nice route to the semis.

I'm also going to take a punt on Spain falling at the first hurdle.




Professor Moriarty -> RE: European football (10/12/2013 8:13:51 PM)

Why do I always feel like its wrong to like Shakhtar?

Looks like it'll be a long night for City.

EDIT: Or not [:D] Seriously what a ridiculous squad City have when you forget that David Silva is with them, cos he's out injured a couple of weeks.




superdan -> RE: European football (10/12/2013 8:19:21 PM)

Shakhtar's goalkeeper looks like a ruthless 1970's PE teacher.




directorscut -> RE: European football (10/12/2013 8:24:05 PM)

If Shakhtar had finishers who weren't pluck from the English Conference League they would be cruising this game.

Ashley Young - deary deary me.




Professor Moriarty -> RE: European football (10/12/2013 9:03:21 PM)

I'm not watching it, and I know there's nothing to play for. But fair dues to City. 2-0 down at Bayern after 15 minutes and they've equalized.




Dirk Miggler -> RE: European football (10/12/2013 11:29:04 PM)

Great result for City, sure there was nothing to play for but I can guarantee no way Bayern wanted to be losing at home. When your on a run like they are you despise losing full stop, even more so at home.
