Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Brazil and Argentina (especially Argentina) have so much talent yet no delivery. It's just painful and depressing to watch these guys play.

Gentlemen, if you lose today you will continue to be the best in the world but if you win today you will be eternal.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Pretty awful tournament so far. Brazilians and their stupid hairstyles. I can understand Neymar and his horse mane hairstyle, since he's had it for a while. But wow, Robinho with his 1930's swing era hairstyle. And don't get me started on Dani Alves. Since when did he become a blonde punk rock right-back?

Pulling for Argentina in the tournament, because I would much like to see Messi win some international trophies. But who knows, maybe neither Brazil/Argentina will make the finals. Especially with the all flash no flare games we've already seen.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Messi's failure for Argentina is incredibly puzzling and only fuels the "would he be AS good without Xavi & Iniesta" argument. I do think that is stopping him from being mentioned in the same breathe as Maradona, Zidane etc and will do so at the end of his career if it continues.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Messi is the best player in the world for me, but it is hard to gauge him really. As the above poster said he is usually dire for Argentina. Comparisons with the GOAT are silly though. People are already calling him the GOAT and that's just silly.

+Zidane? Platini destroys him.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Never saw Platini, so I'd just be going off word of mouth - he's certainly up there though along with Cruyff.

Platini is an absolute joy to watch.

Great dead ball specialist, deadly accurate passing and powerful long range efforts. Pretty much the perfect player. Cruyff is one of the most influential to ever play the game. Who knows where Arsenal Football Club would be without his original philosophy?

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Have you ever seen Platini live, as in not via youtube or whatever? Really do wish I'd seen Maradona in his prime, just about caught the early 90's which made me love the Dutch as well as Barca and Milan, as well as Juve.

Zidane is probably the best player I've seen live, although Batistuta, (Brazilian) Ronaldo and Cantona are my favourites. Soft spot for Koeman too.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

The same women who promised to strip if Paraguay won the World cup has said she'll do the same if they win the Copa America.




I hope they're successful.
