Was the Higuain goal offside?

Not offside but it's not entirely clear to me whether he scored or just hit the side net

Who won? I must have fallen asleep. Laughing

What a boring game, you know it's bad when you're hoping for penalties to liven the game up a bit.

Happy with the result.

Only way to accommodate all that would be playing Neymar out of position on the right again though?



Busi Masche
Iniesta
Suarez Messi Nerman

It would require some flexibility. It wouldn't EXACTLY be like that in practice (as in Busi and Masche staying in 1 line). Busquets would have a bit more freedom going forward. Iniesta drifting to the wing, Neymar moving central, Messi dropping to AM etc. The exact semantics Lucho has to figure out. But it's worth a try IMO. Masche is certainly not "La Masia certified" at short passing but he ain't horrible either. You can accommodate 1 player like that for sure if he brings other important attributes IMO. Khedira is starting for Germany. Laughing

Higuain goal was clearly on side. I have whole match recorded in my laptop, just re watched. Argentina should have won the game in regular time. Almost got robbed.
Thanks they won the match in penalty shootout.

It was not a goal. Look at where Cilllesen goes to pick up the ball:

I am guessing one was Huntelaar. Other might be Wijnaldum/Clasie



Source? Vlaar looked so damn nervous taking that penalty, he couldnt even look up, it was a really bad penalty, poor guy whos played well this WC....

Dani I have been focusing on this for a few months now it is absolutely clear Messi is far from his best in terms of physique and overall it affects so many of his strengthens. Im suspecting its just natural aging + the injuries effect. IF thats true than I think Messi would need to change his game a bit and become more of a static player than in the past (in fact all his life), vastly different. What do you think about this?

Thankfully Messi allowed mascherano to speak.


Mascherano  :bow: Finally he earns the respect and regonition he deserves, adjusting his game to suit Barca hasnt been easy.... will always remember Maradona's quote of having Mascherno and 10 others! Very Happy

Argentina GKs first when I watch the 1990 WC I think it was, they traditionally produce good GKs, for penalties also, Romero!  :bow:

A disappointing game, but with the attacking players the best players in both teams, I had a feeling both managers will take a cautious approach to quell those attacking players.

I thought Van Gaal made a mistake with his substitutions and XI:

- De Jong shouldn't have started if he wasn't fit to play the entire match.

- Indi didn't have a good game, but subbing a CB out at half-time is a wasted substitution, even if he's on a yellow.

- Subbing RVP off with the penalties looming.

Cillessen didn't save a single penalty even though he probably should have saved two of them. Had Van Gaal had a substitution left, he could have put Krul in goal again and I think he would have saved at least one of the penalties.

I think tactic wise it was a very good game - yet after germany - brazil a bit boring to watch...

Not sure though how van Gaal came up with this "cunning plan" of substitutions / the order in which the players where taking the penalties.

would have liked to see Holland- Germany on Sunday... can't get myself to like anything about Argentina (soccer wise)

Germany have revealed that their players were told not to embarrass Brazil by coasting through the second half of Tuesday's World Cup semifinal.

With Joachim Low's side having gone 5-0 in front before half an hour had been played on an astonishing night in Belo Horizonte, the players were told not to "ridicule" the shattered hosts after the break.

Team manager Oliver Bierhoff said he had urged them to continue to "play seriously," and two more goals were added as Germany won 7-1.

Bierhoff told German TV network ARD: "It was, at least in parts, a humiliation. At half-time, we told the players to be respectful with the result and not ridicule Brazil.

The behaviour that is truly disrespectful and humiliating is to go and tell something like that to the media.
Bierhoff No

Aging? The guy is 27 and should be in his prime now. Not like he is 33...
He just doesn't give two shits about defensive duties and chills up front all game.

Mascherano is being wasted at CB for Barca, he should seriously think of moving and playing a DM again, he was brilliant last night..

Aging has nothing to do with age. Messi type players get everything at young age and they "age" early. Awards and titles makes them age early

In world cup he didnt age though. He was great in all matches. Yesterday even Pele would not do anything better. He was followed by holland players all the game. There was nothing he could do. But with this way he helps Argentina. Following Messi all game affected Holland,s game, they could not focus on their attack

Disagree. De Jong was fit enough to play, if the game was different he might of stayed on. But Van Gaal saw how Messi wasnt bothered defending him and he was always free. Problem is De Jong isnt a progressive passer, Classsie is. That sub was actually excellent, it gave Holland more control straight away.

Saying BMI didnt have a good game was putting it lightly. He didnt cover Blind at all and that side was the only way Argentina were getting through.

RVP was ineffective and dead tired after "just" 90 minutes. He wanted to win the game, not go to pens.

Dont think its as simple as just natural aging. He is 27. He is just lazy and dont want to put in the work required. If you dont press for 2 years, dont train for it for 2 years...of course your not going to be able to do it whenever you want.

Static player? This isnt the early 90's, there is no room for these in modern football unless your playing CB and holding midfield. He needs to sort himself out. Nothing has eroded skill wise, but his physical level is holding him down.

I think the fact that BMI was limping suggests that he was injured, so there that's why he was subbed at halftime
