    In order to take a little heat off of the RBP, I decided to start this little thread. Here is where you can celebrate a win, mourn over a loss, or just make predictions on an upcoming critical game. I'll get it started:

    :banana: The Badgers football team gets to keep Bunyan's axe in a (literally) last-minute win over Minnesota. And the Badger (women's) VB match I saw last night was a blowout. They kicked Indiana's a$$ all over the court. [30-14, 30-25, 30-12]

    Ajax Amsterdam just tied against Heracles Almelo with a 0-0 score, once more proving that Ajax has a serious problem with their offensive capabilities.

    Which makes me quite happy actually. :grin:

    On a sidenote...PSV seems to be on top of things again, they just wasted AZ with 3-0, i didn't expect that to happen. I don't care much for PSV either, but it's a real shame they cannot field Aruna Kone in the CL, that guy is as strong as a bull.

    I always wondered what barefoot kickers/punters do with their bare foot during bad weather games (rain, snow, etc). Do they keep a shoe on until they are needed on the field, or do they hang out on the benches and force their foot to tough it out? :hmm:

    Yes, sorry about that. :grin:

    I used to go to every match, home and away, but i stopped going to the stadiums a few years ago. The combination of violence and insane ticketprices made me decide it's better to watch football on tv. I also used to go to FC Den Bosch, i grew up in that town and whitnessed their most succesfull years in the Eredivisie, including the lost Cupfinale against Feyenoord. I also visited some FC Utrecht matches in the past, mainly because of the good atmosphere in Galgenwaard, but i don't feel connected with that club. My brother is though, but he was born here, so i guess that's only natural.

    Damn, AC Milan didn't win yesterday. Too bad, because they deserved it.

    Also, Filippo Inzaghi seems to be back in his old tracks. He played really well yesterday, and if he continues like that, he might very well suit well in the World Cup. He is not, from what I've seen from previous competitions, strucken by the Italian Lazyfoot that have kicked them out from WC02 and EC04.

    I call it justice, they didn't deserve to beat PSV in last year's CL, and now PSV steals a point back from them.

    Sure, they were the better side, but PSV was injury riddled, and were playing without their entire frontline, of which two players aren't allowed to play in the CL because they were contracted after the transfer deadline. If Milan would have to face PSV at full strength it would be a completely different story, trust me on this.

    And another reason why i'm glad they didn't win, is that immensely annoying attitude of the Italian players, always whining, begging the ref to give their opponents a yellow card, using their hands and elbows to hurt opponents, bah !!!

    Italians as a people are nice, but Italian footballplayers are the lowest lifeform imaginable, simply disgusting.

    They're the best that money can buy. :shake:

    How on earth do you cheer for your team if it's name is Dnjepr Dnjepropetrovsk ? I would probably swallow my tongue every time i'd attempt to root for them. :D

    This may explain their relative obscurity. ;)

    I have much more respect for Ajax than for Chelsea. Ajax fields young talented players from their own youthplan. Over the years numerous of those young talents have become worlwide respected stars who played for the best teams in Europe. How many young talents out of their own pool are playing for Chelsea ? It's not very hard to field a strong team when you have the Russian mob as a sponsor, trying to compete with Europe's finest with 17 and 18 year old talents is.

    Pac man, I agree, mostly, but yesterday, Milan played pretty well sportsmanwise. And it's not an Italian symptom, it's something all stars, be they German, Spanish, Portogese, Italian, English, or Dutch, suffers from.

    I can't believe that the Falcons had such a rough time against the Saints. It should've been a walk. Tomlinson is a god, he made the Raiders look like old me.

    My Oilers have now lost 5 in row. It sucks, but on the flipside, my Canucks have won 3 straight and should be able to beat Phoenix tonight.

    Not so, the Dutch don't beg the ref to give an opponent a yellow card. I don't know why, but that's simply not done overhere. We are disgusted with such behaviour, the fans don't appreciate it either. Newly contracted players from South America or the southern parts of Europe are being told on their first day that taking a dive for a penalty, and asking the ref for a yellow card is not being tolerated, not even by his own teammates. But there's always exceptions to the rule, Robben for instance has the nasty habit of taking a dive every now and then, that's one of the reasons he has critics overhere.
