Do I look like a person who jumps on bandwagons? LOL I'm fully aware of Messi, but not going to cheer for him. Pirlo<3

 

I have no insight on which team looks like they're going to win the entire thing, just personal opinions  :lol:

Pirlo is a god among soccer players. 

 

 

Now if Super Mario could just get that level of maturity and consistency and finally be the master striker that he is. 

 

 

And Saurez biting Chellini. What is that fucking shit? Why wasn't the fucking cunt ejected from the game. What in the fuck is wrong with FIFA? I don't care if twinkle toes scores 50 goals a game. Faggot can't just bite people!

 

 

 

 

SIGH #DisappointedItalianFanRant :(

 

OH well. USA is doing some amazing stuff. I'm surprised thus far. Klingsmann is doing USA proud!!!

 

 

 

Also. I has a funny for us to read.

Now that the English national team is heading home, it only makes sense for the Three Lions fans to start rooting for the United States in Brazil, right?
RECIFE, Brazil— So you’re a die-hard England fan who made his way to Brazil fully intent on enjoying a deep World Cup run because you had faith in your team, and apparently aren’t a big fan of history. Your team has already boarded the plane home and here you are, stuck in World Cup paradise, only you no longer have a team to root for.
 
We have just the solution for you.
 
Want a team that speaks your language? Check. Want a team with some players who play in the English Premier League? Check. Want a team playing an all-important match against a team you hate? Check.

Yes lads, you’ve guessed it, it is time to start rooting for the United States.
 
I know it might sound like a nightmare scenario, but the reality is American soccer has so many English influences that it would only be right if we returned the favor by giving UK fans a team they can support, and one that can actually win matches at the World Cup.
 
In America, most of our announcers (and an inordinate number of our youth soccer coaches) have British accents, and many of our club supporters sing songs that sound just like the ones you hear back home. American fans can’t get enough of the English Premier League, and there’s a good chance you have probably spent some time vacationing in the States.
 
So why not put away the Three Lions and root for the Stars and Stripes?
 
After all, 238 years is probably long enough a period of time to get over the whole Revolutionary War thing, and there was the whole helping England out during World War II, so why not adopt a team that, in reality, is pretty easy to root for.
 
Want a player who can deliver goals even with a broken nose, and one who happened to hone his skills playing at Fulham and Tottenham? Then you’ll love wearing a Clint Dempsey jersey. Want a goalkeeper who can make big saves and avoid Robert Green-like blunders, who has also spent the past dozen years playing in the Northwest of England? Then maybe we can interest you in a Tim Howard jersey.
 
Want a team that actually gives its all and plays like a team rather than a collection of uninterested millionaires? Or a team that has made a habit of exceeding World Cup expectations rather than falling short of them?
 
If so, then there’s really no reason why you shouldn’t trade in your Steven Gerrard England jersey for a Michael Bradley USA jersey.
 
If that doesn’t convince you to trade in “God Save the Queen” for “The Star-Spangled Banner” then consider who the U.S. will play on Thursday. The Americans face Germany in a Group G finale that could see the Americans eliminate the Germans in the group stage. Do you really want the Germans to make another deep World Cup run, to remind you of how much better they are than you? Don’t you remember the 1990 World Cup and how painful it was to watch West Germany beat your Paul Gascgoine-led Three Lions in the semifinals in penalties?
 
Think about Gazza’s tears and how you felt when Chris Waddle missed that last penalty, and how much you hated the Germans that day. England isn’t around to exact that revenge, so why not root for the team that could end Germany’s World Cup early? And yes, I know U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann played on that West German team, but at least he didn’t score in that semifinal or take a penalty, right?
 
Let's face it, you aren't going to root for any of the other European teams, and you don't know that much about the other teams in the mix. Costa Rica is a compelling story, but after it ended England's World Cup with a 0-0 draw it's probably not easy to consider rooting for them. Colombia is fun to watch, as is Chile, but there's the whole language barrier. Same goes for Uruguay, and that's not even considering Luis Suarez's penchant for biting.
 
Sure, you could do what many other tourists have done and just buy a Brazil jersey and root for the home team, but it just might be fun to root for a team that speaks your language and sings songs that you can understand and learn. And above all, root for a team that has provided plenty of thrills at this World Cup, and just might provide some more.
 
Sing it with me old chap. ‘I Believe That We Will Win!’
 
See, it sounds good, even with a British accent.

That bite was not cool at all. I was unfortunately working during the live match, and the only TVs around were airing the Costa Rica vs England game so EH. I didn't see it live. How the fk does Uruguay get away with something like that? BLARGH. Disciplinary action needs to happen sooner than later, even if the ref missed the chance to red card it.

 

Lol on the England fans switching to cheer USA. You gotta do something if you're attending the world cup.. :D

Do you guys think the USA could've pulled a win off yesterday if they hadn't cut Landon donavan?


I won't diminish Landon's skills. But he is a testament to the old American style of approaching sports. If we just got one superstar. We'll win. And what happened? We got fucked. Every time. Klinnsman is showing Americans that we need to understand that regardless of the stars. Your team has to work. The reason portugal is gone. Because its Ronaldo and 10 guys. Camaroon didn't qualify. Because its Eto'o and ten guys. When you have one star and you put the weight on his shoulders. You never go far. 2006 italy proved that. You build a solid team with great chemistry. They weren't the flashiest. They didn't blow out too many games. But the 2006 italian team were solid. They knew each other so well they could fill the gaps. The 2006 team was so beautiful. Great amazing soccer from them.

Costa rica was a team of underdogs by far, but I was really happy when Germany won.

 

I would have been happy if Messi got a world cup for his country and in brazil, but I just knew that Germany would destory! I was a little happy that the USA did okay considerng they were paired up with Guana, Portugal, and some other place...I just need them to learn to make a strong team all around
