Missed the first half but the second was all croatia . . . and almost no whistles.


The first half was similar as far as the whistles go. Lovren deserved at least one yellow card and maybe two and didn’t get any.

also, Belgium and England playing each other twice in the same world cup with both games having essentially no meaning is very funny

So many club teammates just looking at each other and shrugging while Harry Kane hustles his way annoyingly to a golden boot-sealing hat trick.

The Tyler Adams to RB Leipzig is done. $5 mil buy and loan-back that will allow him to finish the season with NYRB and still join the club in the fall rather than having to wait until January.

https://www.starsandstripesfc.com/2018/ ... dams-usmnt

The Jesse Marsch situation is interesting. He's "co-trainer" of RB Leipzig with RB's global director of football, a guy who is apparently a mentor and really invested in Jesse's future. So he's really the caretaker manager for the year and they're packaging it in a way that will let them get away with hiring an American unknown. The players and fans will have a guy they already respect involved and giving Jesse his credibility.

I think it's a ballsy move and should serve him well. It's pretty much the opposite of the Bob Bradley at Swansea situation. The ownership really knows what it's doing.

Harry Kane winning the Golden boot with one goal that wasn't a penalty or a teammate accidentally hitting him in the heel is also extremely funny

Hey now. It was two goals. Both in the Tunisia game. But your point still stands.

especially impressive in that he wasn't even part of the last 75 minutes of the semifinal

France haven’t done a thing right offensively and they have two goals, frustrating

Subasic has graciously decided to make Croatia’s bad luck first half irrelevant

that is some piss poor reffing. first France goal on a dive and second one on a dubious at best handball. Backwards use of VAR. Credit France or fatigue for taking Modric out of the match though.
