The 200% World Cup: The Final Word – Fun, Wasn’t it?

Twohundredpercent at related • 0 views

It was a measure of how entertaining the 2014 World Cup finals were until then that the second-round tie between Argentina and Switzerland got such horrible reviews. No two hours of football containing 43 (count ‘em) attempts on goal should be completely written off, however putrid some of them were (hello, Josip Drmic).

It took until the twenty-second minute of extra-time at the end of the match to settle it once and for all, but by the time the full-time whistle blew in the Maracana last night, there was already a reasonably firm consensus on the matter. The best team over the course of the tournament had, in the end, won it.

Another week with many developments at Hereford United (1939) but the only result has been increasing polarisation between the club and the fans. Here's John Perkins with another update from this summer's crisis club du jour.

Changes at the Club

The club increasingly operates in isolation but there were a few developments that showed they were still continuing with their plan (whatever that is).

Our resident obsessive-compulsive Dotmund has been busy drawing other things biting other things, and so has let World Cup artwork slide. Which is a relief to everyone. However, his real love in life is lists and attempting to ascribe numerical order to chaos. This is because he's an idiot, or has too much time on his hands, or both.

Good evening, sports fans! I guess the first quiestion that I have to ask is this: have you recovered from last night? I certainly haven't, and will return to the subject once last time in order to briefly mention that we will most likely remember where we were yesterday evening for the rest of our lives.

The 200% World Cup: Brazil’s Chastening Evening

It was a defeat that many had seen coming. Lacklustre in the group stages and a little fortunate in each of their two previous knockout matches, this had not been the Brazil team that the country had promised itself for this tournament. The nature of Brazil's capitulation at the hands of Germany last night, however, was a jolt to the system for everybody who witnessed it.

Good evening, sports fans! Anyone else get the feeling that World Cup semi-finals have a tendency to be somewhat understated? After all, this eveing in Belo Horizonte we have two of the historical superpowers of international football locking horns for a place in the World Cup final, and the world seems less than over-excited at the prospect of it all.

Good afternoon, sports fans. Edward and I are here from five o'clock on with a liveblog of the third quarter-final match at the 2014 World Cup finals, between Argentina and Belgium. Now, these two teams met in both the 1982 finals, when the then-defending champions were beaten by Belgium in the opening match, though four years later Argentina got their revenge with a win in the semi-finals four years later.

Plus ça Change: The High Court Damning Of Coventry City

When the verdict was delivered at the High Court in London earlier this week, it couldn't have been done so in a more emphatic manner. Contrary to the many public statements on behalf of the club over the last few months or so, Mr Justice Hickinbottom ruled that Coventry City Council had not acted "irrationally" in refinancing a loan taken out by the owners of the Ricoh Arena, ACL, at the start of last year, and that this loan didn't, as the club had previously claimed, breach European State Aid law.

Soccer! It's back again and the hosts are in action. This is no doubt terribly exciting for the loyal support but not necessarily so for us, because Brazil have stunk the place out so far, or at least been terribly disappointing. Their test today is a stern one, against everyone's favourite South American team from this tournament.

Good afternoon, sports fans! It seems like an age since we were last on the case over the 2014 World Cup finals, but we're at, what I have come to understand is known as, the "business end" of the tournament. So, what will happen? Will sangfroid and caution win out over flair and imagination? Can the excellence of the matches that we have seen so far really continue now that the stakes are starting to rise?

In some respects, it's a blessed relief to get a little respite from the World Cup. If nothing else, it has been emotionally draining. The last two weeks have been a whirlwind of unprecedented excitement, of matches that have shifted their shapes before our very eyes, and while there may have been some disappointment at the outcome of many of the Second Round matches, there have been points over the last two weeks when it has felt as if every one of our emotions has been tugged at by a game that, in its very simplicity, offers what what can sometimes feel like a myriad of different emotions, some painful, some infuriating, but very, very occasionally, they hit heights that knock the wind from your chest and leave you beaming and speechless at the beauty of it all.

Ho ho, me so funny. It's the last day of the Second Round of this year's World Cup, so it's time to take another look at Argentina and see if they're capable of going all the way this year. A comfortable draw certainly helps their case, but today's match against Switzerland isn't quite a foregone conclusion.
