How is Switzerland more physical than Honduras, Paraguay, or Chile?MUFC1994 wrote:Spain will lose again. I'm predicting a 2-0 defeat. Spain got beat by one physical team (Switzerland) this tournament. It wouldn't surprise me.panchester07 wrote: Did someone say tiki-taka?
Germany will be glad to sit back, absorb the attack, and counter. Spain can have 70% of the possession, possession doesn't always translate to goals.panchester07 wrote:How is Switzerland more physical than Honduras, Paraguay, or Chile?MUFC1994 wrote:Spain will lose again.

That game was a pure coincidence, Swiss stuck there ass inside the goal and defended teh whole game. Due to a series of rebounds, Fernandes ended with the ball alone in the small box. That, and maybe 2 other shots where all that swiss had. Germany by no means is gonna defend vs Spain like the previous 5 teams have, and they are gonna play them like equals. Lets see who is who.
Brown, eventhough Van Persie didn't touch the ball it doesn't mean he didn't participate in the play. He swung at it and tried to change the direction just missed. He was offside when the ball left Sneijder's foot, and participated in the play by attempting to touch it, and interfering in the path of the play.
Wait......... What's that noise????
.......I'm starting to here it........ Tiki-taka, tiki-taka, tiki-taka..............Tiki taka!!!!!!!!
I really wasn't. You're calling people idiots, calling them pathetic, saying they "don't know good soccer", all because they think Germany will beat Spain in the WC. Who sounds like the 12 year old there?mustahfa14 wrote:You sound like 12 year olds. although i think magicfeet was being sarcastic.
I agree with that. I also have a feeling Germany might just win it because of that. Argentina and England were allowed to keep a lot of the possession and got thrashed.Germany will be glad to sit back, absorb the attack, and counter.

Actually, I didn't call you a jerk. I said you sounded like a jerk when you throw out insults in the manner you did. There's a huge difference. Also, "kid" isn't strictly an insult, though it may come across as quite patronising. Apologies.mustahfa14 wrote:and magic feet, really? you called me out on insulting people when you called me a "jerk" and a "kid." two insults in one tiny senctence. I just call people out who make assumptions with no back up. and people are shedding tears over my debates because they keep complaining about oh your being biased prick and mean and blah blah blah.
2 of them actually.. Alonso, and Busquets.terminator wrote:Spain also doesn't seem to have too many proper holding/defensive midfielders(correct me if I am wrong...not too sure).Although the same kind of thrashing probably won't happen with Spain but I think Germany will win it because of their extremely fast breaks.Germany will be glad to sit back, absorb the attack, and counter.

I think it would be faster if I just let you rebut your own argument rather than doing it myselfpanchester07 wrote:mustahfa.. chill .. i feel you... its damn annoying how they justify stuff, how they give the worst reasons, how must of them sound like they haven't watch a damn match, and give you poor reasons to support their team, and to say they'll win, how when their team does ilegal stuff or has a weakness its all good
I don't see what the problem is with people saying that germany is the more likely team to win, if their country is knocked out then they're free to pick and choose which team they want to win. Hell I'm only cheering for spain because I predicted that they would win during the quarter finals and if I'm right then my buddy owes me an ice cream, I still think that they've got a very good chance against germany but mustafah you're being just as bad as everyone else if you're not willing to admit that the two teams are level going into this.panchester07 wrote:They have flaws, they aint the best, but by no means are they shaky and I've stated time after time why they aren't. The teams haven't been world class either, but they have stood them well, including 60 minutes that Argentina gave the possesion to Mexico and said "hey attack me" we're gonna sit back and let you do that, they only got 1 goal. If 4 good teams each put 2 in the back of the net of argentina, then the defense might be considered shaky. If 4 good teams score 2 goals between all of them, then the defense deserves some credit, and you are the biased one if you don't wanna give it to them.
De Michellis makes mistakes. He doesn't need Klose to finish it, Koreans can. I don't think he'll mess up again that bad in this tournament, and by that bad I mean I think he'll play it safe coming out of the back.
Samuel is champion of europe, italy, and italian cup.
Heinze is a damn warrior that will literally not let you breathe.
Otamendi will run, and will work, he's the best in his club team,and he does the work on his side.
Mascherano does everything, and adds 903513% balls to the defense, he will not stop running, chasing, sliding, and recovering balls.
Simply, a defense that only allows 2 goals, in a world cup, isn't shaky.
