England/US game today.

Personally, I'm divided.

I want to see the US win because you English are just bad at sportsmanship. Sure, the American Football leagues cause some homicides, but usually it's a DUI or a Drunken Brawl. But you English, you're assholes. Instead of acting like you haven't gone undefeated for the past 40 years, at least look at it in how we do:

England's doing good, right? So's the US.
Most likely, it's down the line of 50-50.
Sure, you're higher in the ranks, but we're not playing like Venezuela.

But I'm also slightly rooting for England due to the fact that if you win, then shit can hopefully get back to normal.

Also, Gagsy: I may be a frequent troll, but at least I'm willing to admit defeat.

TL;DR- England: Get off your high horse and don't be a sore loser.

What a shame, Mister Jensen.

I never asked for this, Mister Denton.

Agreed. His one of the few players in history I enjoy watching even If i totally hate the other team. I cheer for Real Madrid, but watching Messi is something really special.
So far he's giving a great game.

Nigeria's goalkeeper is making some miracles. and they will need them, since Argentina is attacking like crazy.

Lol, I'm stunned, literally.

I want England to win as much as any Englishman does but I'm not deluded about our choices and never have been. Do I think we can beat USA? Of course. Do I think we can win the World Cup? No. Where is the high horse stuff then mate? I've never claimed we are anything other then a semi decent team.

Holy shit, Taiwo was fucking unlucky with that one. Man...

Messi missed a real sitter a few minutes ago too.

Also, how entertaining is Maradona? It's like he's so insane, he still thinks he's a player of some sort.

Damn. I was working so I missed the first two matches. Too bad the radio didn't live stream them. I can't wait for England - USA. I'm pretty sure England will win, btw. I've never seen America play any football other than American football.

By our chances**. Seriously something is wrong with me today. Though I do have one eye on the tv too.

Still, looking forward to beating USA. Don't like the confident bigging up on ones own team? You're watching the wrong sport then.

Nigeria had a good setup then to score, but that striker went about 10ft over the goal.

All of these close goals are making me all hot and bothered. I CAN'T TAKE IT.

Response to 2010 Fifa World Cup Thread 2010-06-12 11:46:39


Argentina is winning with a questionable goal. There was a foul by Samuel during the free kick, so it probably shouldn't count, unless it was foul before from the Nigerian defender.

Their forwards are great, but they just dont work as a team.Messi's looking great though.

Argentina looked very good in attack there, but their defence wasn't great. Nigeria had plenty of chances to equalise, and a good side will punish them- the next match against South Korea will be very interesting.

Still, best to avoid Argentina I think, hopefully we'll come top of our group and not have any chance of facing them until the final. A win against the USA later is all important (or at the very least a draw- I'd fancy England to score more against the other two and be top on goal difference in that scenario).

Final score - Argentina 1, Nigeria 0.

So many missed chances, but very entertaining game. It was nice that it wasn't just Messi on that front, but various Nigerian strikers too. They all looked exhausted by the end, since they had both moved into the mass-pass way of doing things. Enyeama for man of the match I think.

I have a bit of a feeling that deciding who goes through in Group B may lean on how much Nigeria and Argentina can beat Greece by, if you'll forgive my cynicism. Group A need to look out.

For the next highly anticipated game...

For everything else, there's...

Typically I'm missing Englands opening game due to work and I'm too much of a wuss to pull a sicky. And I'll miss the highlights as well because I don't finish until 11.

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

I'm not picking you out, but knowing you and the fact that you're on, you'd say something.

But the fact that you guys think that you're either going to win without a fight or just slaughter us is basically being deluded.

Do I think we can beat USA? Of course.

Take in consideration that we're not a horrible team and that this hasn't gotten big because of the fact that we're making it big because of our egos. I mean, we did this in the 80's in Hockey, we won against you guys back in the 60's, and we have a good chance of doing it again.

Do I think we can win the World Cup? No. Where is the high horse stuff then mate?

Now don't twist my words to total ambition. I'm looking at the high-horsing from this incoming game, not the league.

I've never claimed we are anything other then a semi decent team.

And you guys are, but so are we.

Us Americans have the saying 'Don't count your chickens before they hatch'.

You'll never know what happens. You could win, and we won't make a big stink about it. Or we'll win and not shove it in your faces. But to be honest, the English that I see that are rooting are acting a little too pompous.


What a shame, Mister Jensen.

Oh and the idea that us English are blindly cocky is absolute rubbish, this match is regarded as the our hardest in the group stage and there's been very few predictions of an outright slaughter. We're confident that we can win, and of course can and should on paper.

So shut up.

I never got into sports much, but I have heard about this a little more on the news (or at least on places like Comedy Central) and I do find it kind of strange that they are calling it "football", as in everyone is. I suspect we will simply call the sport "football" sometime soon as well. I was pretty good at soccer in high school.

Can I post the picccyture I drewed for everyone every time there's some inter-nation flaming that goes beyond football? :(

Long story short: I'm English, I know we're a pompous sort. Some of us are pompous in different ways. Is pompous a negative adjective? I don't know, is anti anti-art anti-art?

I love America :(

Also, it'll be interesting to see if Italy still has it. I'm surprised Cannavaro doesn't have a zimmer frame.

I figured Argentina would win. I was pulling for Nigeria but Argentina seemed to be a bit more stoked to win from the getgo. They just had more of a spark.

Anyway, I'm pulling for England to win the World Cup despite being from the US. The US is second to me. What I am wondering about it how Tim Howard will play as the US keeper for the first time.

I'm on fucking Newgrounds. You think we're all Americans?

I guess I'm bitching because not only are a lot of you guys total assholes when it comes down to it, but because once again, you took a team that's having a decent year and made them look like they're not even on the leaderboards.

Underestimating shit really does piss me off.

Often seems that way tbh

The US hasn't been underestimated at all, as I say we've said it will be our toughest group stage match by a long way and most people are predicting at best a modest win.

Where has your idea that your team has been underestimated come from?

If it's from average Joe on the internet going on about how we'll kick your ass 5-0 then it's to be expected of course, assuming they represent general opinion would be like calling all muslims terrorists.
