Anyone watching the Spain-Tahiti game?

This is the only Confed Cup game I plan to see (I might end up watching the final). Most of the fun has gone already though thanks to Torres.

Spain smartly putting out a B-side giving the other players a chance to shine and impress, only hoped Casillas would have gotten a game. Miss seeing him in goal.

Edit: Tahiti actually holding up well for a side that lost 6-1 in their previous match.

Tahiti have held up well, but unfortunately they concede again as I decide to post this.

That dribble from Chong Hue (?) was something special.

Edit: Yeah this is going to end badly now.

Haha I think we might have actually jinxed Tahiti who weren't doing badly but as you said It's going to end really badly now.

I put a couple of quid on a 9 - 0 Spain win.

9 does look very likely especially since right now it's 6-0 and not even an hour has passed yet but despite the Spain dominance there are 2 Spain midfielders who aren't playing very well at all. Mata and Cazorla have been let downs so far, their poor passing to be specific.


Edit: 7 now but glad to see Torres consoling the opposition keeper.

It looks like Spain will be surpassing that 9 at this rate.

That 7th goal was just awful.

Well now I know how weird a double-digit score looks.

My jaw dropped when the ref called two minutes of injury time. Really?

Glad to see the respect shown between the two teams though, looking back when I played schoolboy football and we beat a side by that sort of margin we would just laugh and walk off the field. Guess we were young and dumb.

Unfortunate there -Lapras-, how much would you have won?

I think it was more due to the relative status of the two teams, if New Zealand beat them 10-0 which I assume happens every so often then they wouldn't care as their players aren't superstars. Obviously fair play is more of an adult thing in general though.

Somewhere around £60.

Royston Drenthe joined Reading, kinda surprising. I wonder if it was the supposed attitude problems that put off bigger clubs.

He spent half of last season without a club which would make it more understandable, but then it looks like he actually had a decent spell in the RPL so it is quite odd. I'd still think one Premiership club want him, I mean R.Madrid wanted him at some point, there must be some talent there.

The U-20 World cup started today. unfortunately (for me) the U.S. was just stomped by Spain 4-1. Idk who all watched the game, but the American's attack looked amazing. We should of scored more goals, but the defense was horrid to say the least. it was painful to watch. My man of the match for the U.S. was Luis Gil, who plays at my MLS team Real Salt Lake. He scored the lone U.S. goal and created 2-3 other clear cut opportunities. Really stood out and was amazing the whole game.

What do you guys think about the U-20 world cup? Are you going to watch any?

I'm probably just going to watch the Spanish matches to go all "damn we are so good in all levels".

No, really, I will probably just watch the semis and final if we make it. Otherwise, I'm not too big on under tournaments. I just checked today's score twice, when we were 1-0 and 4-0 up, didn't even notice the US had scored later :\

Referee ruining my night also. I put a couple on a 9-1 result when Tahiti should have been given a penalty. I know I'm slow, but a good win for Uruguay also.

Oh, certainly. He still plays for the Barça B in the Second Division, although it's just a matter of time before he's promoted to the main team. If he keeps his current form, he can become a really great forward, although it's still early to say for certain.

Does Cuenca still get any game time for Barcelona? I remember him being absolutely atrocious, especially considering he was a Barcelona player.

Rumous are continuing that Higuain will join Arsenal, I'll be surprised when it happens that A) Arsenal are willing to spend that much money and B) No better clubs wanted Higuain.

He's been playing (4 games) for Ajax this year. Now that his time is up, he should be returning to Barcelona unless they decide to send him somewhere else this new season too.

Higuaín is terribly underrated I feel.

I believe he's far better than Benzema so I'm unsure as to why R.Madrid are actually willing to sell him anyway. Knowing the club they'll probably just spend the same sum they get for Higuain on a new, lower quality striker.

He could become a big player for Arsenal not just in terms of the present either. With his quality, he could easily become a club legend.

Well Higuaín has been cursed for
a) being signed by Calderón, the president that led Madrid after Pérez left last time, and they apparently want to get rid of every player related to him- that's why Pérez sold Robben and Sneijder in a jaw-dropping move after returning back, and Higuaín is the last survivor from that era.
b) he's been accused of being too coward to play in big games, specially after he missed an empty-goal attempt against Lyon three years ago. Marca (the main Madrid sports newspaper) decided he wasn't fit for CL games that day and they have been repeating it every single day from then on, and it's caught on.

Well despite the fact that neither reason is particularly good, at least it makes the situation a lot more understandable.

Courtois is sticking around at Atletico on loan for another season. Something tells me Chelsea don't really deserve him if they ever do replace Cech with him.
