So. The reality is that Brazil team wasn’t great. Not a single dominating performance, a clown coach and they lost their best player. I’d defer to the Brazilians ITT but losing to Germany 7-1 in the semis likely was a better result than losing to Argentina in the final by any score.

Yes I’d take losing 7-1 to Germany over losing to Argentina in the final any day.

But tbf that’s about the only thing worse than losing 7-1 at home lol

Brazil lost the 2 best players. Neymar and Silva. And we played an attacking line of Bernard, Fred and Hulk. Germany really was about 7 times better than us that day.

And as absurd a score as 7-1 is I am pretty sure the Germans could have scored more if they wanted. They were nice enough to slow down when they brought our ev down to 0.
Because 7-1 is absurd but something like 11-0 would be something unheard of.

So it took Boids <50 posts to AIDS up this thread.

They've won the thing 5 times. 5 times. Sure, 1994 should only count as 0.5 as it was the worst final of all time.

We got over the humiliation of the 6-3 loss at fortress Wembley to Hungary in 1953, they will/have too.

BR,

So obviously losing to Argentina in any final let alone at home is the worst. But other than that, which is considered worse, Germany loss or losing in 50 to Uruguay in the final in front of 211,000 at Maracanã?

Fans of English speaking nations should just stay quiet until they win something in the current century. Hell, even the last half century.

BOIDS, BAIDS, or should I say BA Saint reaching 2010 levels of World Cup AIDS even before they come in third in their group.

Anybody making a bad pöster draft thread this year? The one last time was fun. It was also the birthplace of the now famous Wankin' Daffy avatars.

I think Germany is worse but hard to compare because of the 64 year gap between them.

Losing to Argentina would be the worst because:
1)It’s Argentina
2)We were playing at home
3) They came in with that stupid(and catchy) song of theirs:
“Brasil, decime que se siente”
“Tener en casa a tu papa”
...

Ha I remember that video you pösted.

Something something "Maradona was much better than Pelé".

A bunch of Argies overtaking a Brazilian shopping mall, singing that at the top of their lungs.

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018 General Discussion Thread (Starts 14 Jun)

My predictions for each group.

A. Suarez and Salah take turns to own Russia in front of Putin and their racist fans.
B. Portugal really struggles to break down both Iran and Morocco tough defences but ultimately make it. Spain cruises.
C. Perú surprises everybody by being really good and technical. France has a game in which they play incredible football and win 5-0 while they also have another game in which they are complete AIDS. Whoever gets to play the AIDS version of France advances with them.
D. Nigeria front line is too good for the lol uefa teams. Messi owns everybody, the GOAT thread gets bumped.
E. Brazil and Switzerland goes through, Brazil is really good and destoys everybody. Switezerland win their games but nobody cares because they are a boring neutral country. We dont even watch the highlights of their non Brazil games, just the scores.
F. Germany is really good and destroys everybody. Sweden fold to lol Mexico, everybody retrospectively realizes just how awful Holland and Italy were in qualyfing.
G. England win the group, their fans get excited.
H. Colombia and Senegal go through. Europeans are confused, werent Poland supposed to be good?

Portugal beats Uruguay after some goating by Cronaldo, Suarez gets sent off and gets 6 match ban.

Spain beat Egypt , Salah great season which includes premier league golden boot and Cl winners medal is over.

France beats Nigeria.

Messi cruises against whoever had the luck of playing France when they were Aids.

Brazil beats Mexico after a controversial late penalty, 2+2 explodes

Germany beat Switzerland in a completely predictable boring game.

England fail to show the same form they show in the group against Senegal and eventually concede a late equalizer after whoever is playing in goal for them ****s up. They then lose to Senegal on penalties making it one of the most memorable moments in 2+2 history. Thread gets sticky status.

Colombia beats Belgium after for the 3rd tournament in a row they fail to play according to the level they should.
---------------------------------------------

France beats Portugal in the rematch of the Euro final. Cronaldo tries to score over and over again from 30 yards but he just isnt as good as Eder ( the latter didnt even get into the World cup squad). Cronaldo complains that his teammates arent as good as him.

Spain beats Argentina after Messi has a bad game. Big debate ensues in the GOAT thread. Can he really be the GOAT if he didnt win the world cup? Posters here think that is just casual fan thinking, pundits seem to think otherwise.

Brazil destroy Senegal

Germany destroys Colombia
-------------------------

France surrenders in a pathetic gutless performance. Brazil gets a bye to the final.

Germany and Spain are too close to call, whoever gets a break their way wins the game and a narrative is built around that.

Brazil wins whoever made the final demostrating without doubt that Conmebol > UEFA.

Not sure about A. Suarez might find the racist fans too relatable to own them.

So you'd rather lose to Iceland and have one World Cup than get smashed by Germany at home and have five World Cups? Yikes. I mean you guys also lost to an Axis power 7-1, but it was away so all good I guess

well let me explain it for you. it's like one of those hypotheticals. would you agree to let someone **** your wife on camera for a million quid?

its a toughie, obviously. very tricky decision. the million quid would be great, you can do a lot with a million. but there's downside. i think they made a film about it once. anyway, my personal choice is to turn down the million, i dont wanna have to live with that level of shame for the rest of my life

maybe i'd feel differently if england hadn't already won the world cup
