1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    He's the worst thing in Football. Worse that Suarez, Barton, Busquetes combined x 100.

    Can't stand Blatter but he's right in this case. ET has always been boring since they got rid of golden goal. Let them play until they drop and have a sub every 10 minutes no matter how many they have used.

    Haven't been here in awhile. Nice to see a new thread has been started. Quite butt hurt that Spurs got knocked from CL but it is what it is. Can't wait for Euros even though Portugal will probably collapse rapidly but what's new with the clubs I support. [​IMG]

    At least I have this:

    Spurs fell apart right when Harry was being courted for the England job. It fucked their season up.

    Yep. Fucking shame. Whenever scandal hits spurs, form drops bad. At some times it was practically comical. Modric will be long gone. I expect so will Bale. All I see is £££££££ in our future lol

    I am fine with the game as-is, but I don't object to the golden goal as an alternative. Why was that dropped?

    Blatter would never have brought this up if Bayern had won the penalty shootout.

    No he wouldn't but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be changed.

    According to Wiki it was because the timing of the goal within the 30 mins extra time was important and also that if the wind blew in one direction it could favour one team and it stopped attacking play because they wanted to not concede more than they wanted to score (which is why play till you score should work - someone has to score). Maybe take off a player every few minutes instead of allowing subs, more space means more attacking play and more chances of a goal.

    Nationalism keeps people from enjoying the well played game. Would much prefer to watch the current German side rather than say Italy.

    well, it's the history between the both nations. unfortunately austria couldn't keep up with the glory of the past for one reason or another and the germans have nothing bout mockery for that. although we helped them in the WC 1982 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Germany_1–0_Austria_(1982_FIFA_World_Cup)

    can you name one player who stands out from their side?

    Actually when the USA are playing Mexico , nearly a third of the US population is supporting the latter.
