Ukraine are incredibly defensive. Not a fan of their style of play.

like what? rattles and flat caps and ten bob sixpence a week pay?

the problem is, the elite players are replaceable only by other elite players and they're the difference between winning and losing, and they know it. they'll always bid up their wages and the punter at the gate will end up paying, one way or another

Another victory for the Dutch squad. Woohoo!

Oh by the way, forget about betting on match results. Let's bet some post counts on which player is going to mess with the Coca-Cola bottles next :olo:

Never been less important than during this year. Imo, we should keep it that way.

Never been a football-fan. During the last 30 years EU-football just has gotten way out of hand, that whole business. It's by stellar-far not in line with actual advertisement-costs.

this is the first time i've ever seen the higher scoring team (Portugal) lose the match

on a related note, it's gratifying to see that the England hype is proportionate to England's performance (one goal in two games :| )

Did you ever see a team celebrate a 1 - 0 loss that much (Wales)? :D

Wales got the dicking as well. Though the ref was a wet wipe for two of the goals and there was no way on earth that was a red card for Harry Wilson.

Offside is offside. Simple as that. At least it's fair.
What they should do, however, is adopt the system they use in hockey: each team has a limited number of VAR calls and can use their VAR call whenever they feel the referee made an error.
If the VAR then judges no error was made, you lose your VAR call. If the VAR judges you are right and the ref made an error, the error is corrected and you keep your VAR call.
It means you're not going to see the VAR getting involved willy nilly for every little thing because the teams need to make damn sure they're right before using their VAR call, or you'll lose it.

I like that a lot, it might also stop the defenders calling offside for every almost-marginal effort.

Like you say, darn sure!
