Silence is right. Free is always good. One thing I love about Netflix is it is cheap and everyone can use it. I have an account and all my brothers, children, wife, in laws, etc all use the same account. It is only like what $9 a month? If something beats Netflix, Sword, please let me know.
My three teams are USA, Spain and Germany in order. Obviously US, lived in Spain for 5 years, and Germany for 2. I won't mind at all if Argentina wins as I am a big Messi fan. Really my two favorite teams are US and Spain, above all others. I picked Italy to advance, not England. England always disappoints, it seems, with Wayne Ronney and the roster. With Sterling up and coming, maybe things will change. Uruguay advanced there. Suarez had an amazing season at Liverpool, but he is a pain in the ass. Proud of USA's effort. Heartbroken (still) over Spain's. 2010 was great. Magical run for USA, wSpain won it all..
Laz. Jump in, the water is fine! :). @CFC, good to hear from you. I'm not sure Sword has been officially inducted yet, has he?
I love Netflix. Netflix is the second best creation G-d ever made. Next to the "mute" button for commercials :).
Something has went wrong .... don't expect much from this guy at this point.
Sword. I thought I read from an expert on here Netherlands was the best team in the Cup, and also they would romp through Germany (pretending like Argentina did not even exist). Oh well, I suppose the dude was wrong. In all seriousness, your team looked really good today. Give tons of credit to Sabella. The defense entered the tournament as dysfunctional, and is currently very competent. They continuously relied on Messi coming in, but currently have other guys stepping up. They have improved with every game, pretty much. Messi had great games in all group stage, and also vs. Switz. He was okay vs. Belgium and bad today. Yet, they still picked up his slack. The team is confident, has momentum, and showed they can win a chess match, not just on Messi Magic. Germany is a whole 'nother beast. They are incredibly well-rounded and skilled. Curious to see where they will put Lahm. I would not be surprised to see him marked up vs. Messi on occasion. Argentina's defense NEEDS to be just as good vs. Germany's potent attack. Ozil and co. will not allow any blunders to be given slack.
Besides yours, correct?
You're welcome, tcglory.
^^ my breakdown Sword :), sorry I did not see the post earlier. Welcome to the club. And, for Argentina. You'll know I'll be cheering for them. Everyone wants to see Argentina-Brasil (biggest rivalry in international futbol) in the final. It is questionable. I must say I think Netherlands has been vulnerable in the past couple games, however I can not disrespect Guillermo Ochoa nor can I disrespect Costa Rica's surprise run. BTW. You said one time I should never underestimate Wesley in big moments on that old thread, and he came up big against Mejico. Personally, I think argentina has looked suspect the whole tournament. Messi has literally been carrying the team on his back. However, against Belguim, they looked better. The defense looked much better and Messi had a great game. I doubt Netherlands will give Messi as much space as Belgium did. My gut tells me Netherlands, but I can not bet against Messi vs. a vulnerable looking team. I'm rooting for Argentina all the way. I can't decide who wins this one. Really excited. And, yeah, Iw as rooting for Costa Rica to upset too. @Ruffianlover, good luck to your team.
Sword. Unfortunately I'll miss tomorrow's game because I have a committment as a basketball coach to fulfill. Anyway, I lived in Germany and played ball there for two years. It is a great place, but on the flip side, Brasil is a fun team so I don't mind them winning as a host team. I think Germany is too well rounded for Brasil. Without Neymar, the attack is questionable. Germany has (possibly) the best keeper in the world, and the defense is potent. Hulk showed up against Colombia, but Oscar (who I really like as a footballer) has been a no-show in the past two games. Oscar needs to step up and Hulk needs to deliver. And, also. Germany loves to attack, as we both know. Brasil's fullbacks, Marcelo and Dani Alves, can both be suspect. They can be exposed on those counter attacks. Ozil and co. leading the charge, with Klose (legend) up top, they will not let Brasil get away with anything. I think Germany will win this game 2-0 or 2-1 or something in that nature. I think Brasil will go out swinging but I can not trust the attack without Neymar and the defense without Thiago Silva. For those who don't know. Neymar is a top 5 player (IMO) in the world, and Thiago Silva is one of the most expensive (plays for PSG), one of the best, and one of the most coveted defenders in the world.
