  KKDEREK: <Shams: I'm looking into my crystal ball. I see a new manager in Brazil's future.>

Hope so..Well we gotta learn from that..A massacre indeed..The worst defeat in 100 years from our history.. So let's clean our wounds, learn from them, work on new players , plan for the future..As Germany did.. This team was assembled since 2006..So lets think 2022. Whatevs

  Shams: <KKDEREK> Now you know how the rest of the world feels! Sorry it had to be like that, but you'll be back. Probably the favorite in 2018 even.

  KKDEREK: <Probably the favorite in 2018 even.>

I hope so..But I find difficult..Today was a tactical lesson..We are miles ahead from Germany..They are the faves already for 2018..I mean, half of this team <will be> on 2018, more experienced stronger.They have a kid Goetze, amazing he's bench now but very young will be strong till there..

We have a long way to catch up bro, also we need more Neymars Ronaldos, Rivaldos..More talents..If this game finished shall we say 2-0 , lots of things that shall be done would not happen. A small score would cloud us from our real problems. Now something will be done for sure, because we have no choice..Some revolution here will start after this reality check..

  KKDEREK: Felipao is pathetic..So he admitted that he didn't trained the team with Bernard (!) to confuse the press (?!) and therefore German coach..

unbelievable at any count..

  perfidious: <KKDEREK> While even this non-follower of football had heard of Luis Suarez' recent biting incident in the WC, I had no idea that was no less than the third such go at it: it seems Barcelona, Suarez' new club, can fine him up to three million quid if there is yet another repetition of hunger pangs.

  KKDEREK: Oh no Dunga again as a Brz coach..

  Karposian: <KKDEREK> Dunga again? Well, that was surprising! I would have thought you would appoint some new guy I'd never heard about before.

He was your coach in South Africa 2010, right? I remember he was criticized for leaving out some players for that World Cup.

Jul-18-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  KKDEREK: <karposian> Well one thing he's respected around here, is that he's all macho. lol I mean, he's a natural leader, Brazilian team always crushed Argentina at his time for example..I think we need a strong person as at the field our current players are not strong mentally..He has a good record coaching, and make some mistakes but I personally would prefer some gringo, like Guardiola, new fresh thinking..But is almost confirmed Dunga indeed..Worse than Felipao he will not be..We shall se the official news by tuesday..2010 we lost that Netherlands game by some individual blunders (julio cesar) I think we could have that game with no surprises. Im worried anyway..Brazil is for WC 2022 not 2018..Unless tons of talents arises from nowhere..

<Water cannons break up rioting in Argentina following defeat to Germany>

<The hopes of 40 million people had been heaped on the shoulders of the national side - in particular Lionel Messi, who picked up the 'Golden Ball' as top player of the tournament, and in-form goal keeper Sergio Romero.>

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-...

Funny Messi got that award. For the judges it must have been some sort of hangover from his play in the Spanish league.

Yeah, it was a ridiculous decision. It seemed more like a consolation prize for losing the Final than anything else.

The Golden Ball award should have gone to Muller, Robben or Rodriguez i think.

Ridiculous but expected. Do you think the biggest product of Champions League (alongside C Ronaldo and few others), Spanish League, a 'walking corporation' worth's about 25MI of endorsements, (mostly of them also sponsored the WC) would loose a prize for some unknown James from Costa Rica? Bollocks.

I talked before about this super exposition and hype..And people goes on that bandwagon, especially the kids , some journalists.

That what becomes soccer, a big product. Not a bad thing to a sport being commercially successful, but let's not get our heads over on some things..The only chance of James wins something of that caliber is to play on Europe, if possible, on those Adidas or Nike sponsored super-teams, if you know what I mean.

Jul-20-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  Karposian: <KKDEREK> I think you are right. Shonsorships are probably the real reason behind giving the Golden Ball to Messi. The sponsors want something back for all their invested capital, that's just how it is.

I read somewhere that Messi is sponsored by Adidas, and I know that they are one of the main sponsors of the World Cup. I'm sure that they wanted one of 'their' guys to win.

A nice person (seems to be), a leader, and technically an average good player..The rest is just hyping IMO..People will mourn and say lots of things course..

Jul-21-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  Karposian: <KKDEREK> One of the most overrated players in modern Soccer. He could pass the ball well, but, as you say, technically very average. Seems to be a genuinely nice guy, though.
