Most of my statements are "I think this", "I find this" and "I saw this". There's really not much to prove about one's own opinion :d 

Well, I don't have the time to carefully check but I remember some of your sarcastic opinions (against Schwazer, for instance, who is a close friend of mine); I'm really not sure that, within a discussion group, you must not prove your opinion, above all if it's against somebody; really not sure at all (maybe within a tiny group of close friends but not here).

It's an online sports forum, not a scientific research group. Relax.

 

And yes, I'm generally rather sarcastic when it comes to people caught doping. Italian, Dutch, Kryptonian, whatever.

Should have saved that one for the final instead of hitting the goalpost when the game was tied with a matter of seconds to play...

 

Spoiler

 

If only he made that goal, the Netherlands would have won this MMA match, but I get all the non-stop provocations during and before the match made him lose his cool :p

Decent bit of sore losership, but alright, it's not bad to have several VAR examples about which there is discussion. Obviously nothing will or should actually happen with the protest, but it's good to take these mentioned moments into the evaluation of the VAR at the end of the tournament.

American statistics site fivethirtyeight has done a bit of timing the stoppages of the games. Only one had too much stoppage time according to them: Germany - Sweden

 

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/world-cup-stoppage-time-is-wildly-inaccurate/

So as expected, referees add way too few minutes of extra time in basically every match. Once again: it's time for a normal game clock, which is stopped during the preparations for throw-ins, free kicks, penalties, during referee decisions like giving a card, during substitutes, and so on.

Both Aguero and Higuain on the bench in Argentinian team, Messi as a "false 9".

I told you Dundalk vs Cork would be a good game! Much better than France vs Argentina
