Re: 2018 UEFA world cup - Eng vs Cro

What does it look like to you?

And you didn't comment on the offside.

sn,

you know when a defender wont move back so as to prevent a quick free kick, and the attacking player boots it straight at him to draw the ref's attention

Re: 2018 UEFA world cup - Eng vs Cro

maybe subtlety isnt going to work

the croats took like 3 minutes celebrating (fair enough, but still, they took ages) and we were standing around ready and obviously keen to restart ASAP, so we drew attention to the fact that loads of time should be added on. obviously a bunch of professional footballers didn't think they were going to be allowed to score without the ref whistling to restart the game, that sort of thing wouldn't fly in a pub league

i think you'd have to be of quite uh dubious character not to figure this out on your own

Sure thing. That's exactly the body language your brave (and intelligent and of no "dubious character" at all) lads are giving away in that .gif.

And what about the offside?

anti-english bias is sending you guys absolutely bonkers

yeah i guess we thought we'd just kick off and hope no1 would notice that the ref hadn't restarted the game, something that wouldn't be allowed to happen in a game involving under 7s never mind a world cup semi with ****ing VAR. grate theory u lads

Re: 2018 UEFA world cup - Eng vs Cro

I wasn't an SE reg during the 2010 WC, but I've heard the tales about your atrocious p÷sting during that one. Seems like the English making it out of the group stages makes you channel your inner AIDS.

Again, stop embarrassing yourself. It's getting cringy.

I'm assuming there will be no comment on the offsides, then?

Re: 2018 UEFA world cup - Eng vs Cro

If we count the last 3 years nobody has won more international trophies than Chile.
We would have probably won a World Cup but we keep missing out from World Cups based on administrative desitions, I think its 3 of the last 8 for us.

Re: 2018 UEFA world cup - Eng vs Cro

There was definetly some weird urban legend going around this world cup that teams could kick off quickly if no opposing player was in the field of play. Some Portuguese dude stayed on the pitch rather than celebrate with his mates after their equaliser vs Spain, Toni RŘdiger went back to pick the ball out of the net after Kroos' buzzer beater, Panama tried the same vs England. Can't blame England for trying I guess but the offside is certainly LÍL.

Ah, thanks. I get it now. They're protesting Croatia allegedly wasting time by playing the ball down to the other end of the field so that it will take longer to kick off. Kind of an elaborate satirical performance art. Tricky!

No wonder we Yanks will never figure out the subtleties of this sport.

I've changed my mind. Keep going. Sometimes a little bit of cringe can be oddly entertaining.

Easier to win trophies when you have your continental competition like every 6 months and there are only 10 teams who all automatically qualify.
