[WCC] World Cup - oh wait, it's over.

Day 2,429, 07:59 by Claire Louise



Well. That's that then for another four years. Was it me, or was the final a little... dull, maybe? Slight anti-climax there.


Germany spanked the hosts, Brazil, 7-1. 5-0 up by the 29th minute. Mental. They then of course went on to beat Argentina in a fairly boring match compared to the semi. So yeah. That's that. I don't do analysis. Bugger off.

So, since Germany won (many expletives), that means the winner of the WCC is LordR92! I sent your weapons over yesterday mate, enjoy!

I was runner up, bagging 60 Q7's. The top scorer of the competition was James Rodríguez for Columbia, meaning Doovah bagged 20 Q7's. As for the red cards... Not a single nation had more than one red card. Each of these nations finished all with one red card:



So, instead of splitting the prize, I'm gonna throw it into a random draw. You can't split 20 by 11, so yeah.



Lonely Fighter bags the last 20 Q7's, grats mate!

Are you 4 years old?

Dr Hugh Jardon
Dr Hugh Jardon Day 2,429, 11:07

Mentally yes, why? If you had spent a bit more time enjoying it rather than watching whatever shinny object was fascinating you then you'd have seen this was the best world cup in many, many years...many pro's of the game have said the same.

Goals, drama, Suarez being Suarez, shocks yeah you've stopped reading haven't you...must be a nice Christmas Bauble you've found

AMS Matias
AMS Matias Day 2,429, 11:09

because if you say that was the best world cup in your life, only means that you only saw 1 world cup.

I've been watching them since i first can remember 1982...be retarded, like i said you'll find very few pro's of the game who disagree. Records broken everywhere, great football and shocks...still one person says it was sh*t so must have been sh*t.

Oh wait...you Portuguese? lmao

"because if you say that was the best world cup in your life, only means that you only saw 1 world cup."

It was the ten countries below the Dutch, The Netherlands was the last red from the previous World Cup Finals in 2010...this one needs to be removed from cabinet immediately in my humble opinion.

Claire Louise
Claire Louise Day 2,430, 05:51

Well thanks for telling me. You sent the screenshot and didn't explain that part

Meh, still stands.

I can't believe Brasil lost 7-1, since 1975 they have never lost a game at home, and first ever lost in their history for 7 goals, the last time they lost by a big margin was in 1920 6-0.

Germany one more world cup and they will be the only nation with Brasil to have 5 cups, great work Germany with out a doubt !!!

Never lost 2 WC games in a row either since WC74

Dr Hugh Jardon
Dr Hugh Jardon Day 2,430, 07:02

The 7-1 game was brilliant...not for Brazil obviously. But to see such history like that and you knew it was a footballing moment that will be discussed decades later...moments like that we what made this world cup special.

I got more enjoyment out of 2 Chicks 1 Cup over watching the world cup.


Also I missed out on my hearty handshake since I got a loosing team
