Do find it interesting that people in here were nowhere to be found after Japan beat Germany. Now they have a reason to come in here to trash Japan though their teams are also laughable this World Cup.

BIG MISTAKE. The manager will be sacked for too much tinkering by leaving out his best players.

No manager has ever coached 2 consecutive World Cups.

I doubt they will get even a point against Spain when they can't even have a single shot at goal versus Costa Rica. They just got a couple of lucky breaks versus Germany,

Did you even watch the game yesterday? Japan had 3 shots on goal. Costa Rica had 1 which went in. Why would Japan's goals against be lucky and Costa Rica's not?

The "experts" here said Japan didn't deserve to win because Germany controlled the ball most of that game. Yesterday Japan controlled the ball but they are saying Japan "underestimated Costa Rica." What is the end game for people living in Japan but wants Japan to somehow lose?

Football was is and remain a European and South American tradition.

Because of this ONE game might as well ban all non-European and South American teams because they are not worthy of putting on a football uniform. I would actually triple dog dare you to go tell this to all your Japanese friends, family members, co-workers, etc that they have no right to be in the World Cup because football is not in their DNA. Let's see how that works out for you.

Moriyasu has set the benchmark as the Semi finals - minimum. 

Actually he said final 8 which would be the first time in Japan's history.

Ideal would be Japan beating Costa Rica and Spain-Germany getting a draw. Then Japan would only need a draw vs Spain to win the group. I'd rather not see Belgium again.

Posted in: Japanese fans rejoice after dramatic World Cup win over Germany See in context

Interesting to see some people that today for the first time acknowledged the World Cup was happening or even talking about soccer for the first time since years of knowing them.

I usually go to all of the Japan team's Osaka and Kobe games whether it is the Kirin Cup or Asian qualifiers. Tickets are easy to buy and hardly anybody I know knew they played the night before unless the news announced they clinched a spot in the WC. There are either die-hards or bandwagoners. A lot of bandwagoners use it as an excuse to run around Shibuya like they do for Halloween lol

Posted in: Japan gets 2 late goals to upset Germany 2-1 in their World Cup opener See in context

I have been into the Samurai Blue since 2002 and go to every game when they play at Nagai Stadium. They almost always play a strong 1st half and gas out in the 2nd. This is the start of a revolution! lol Asano, Doan, Tomiyasu and Minamino are all potential starters but came off of the bench and instantly made an impact. Asano attacked as soon as he stepped on the field. I wonder if they are going with this approach for the Costa Rica match or will switch starters. I can't wait for 7pm Sunday night!

Thats 90 minutes of your life you'll never get back! Both teams dreadful.

Same score but I found the Tunisia-Denmark to be worse. I loved the refs in this game though. Let the players play instead of coddling the floppers.

If one of these 2 can at least tie France, they can get in I think.

I am rooting for Senegal in that group. Netherlands is a beatable team too that I don't see making past the next round.

Fun game especially after the first half hour. Iran will be that gimme win for U.S. and Wales.

I am happy though we came away with a draw and not a loss. Wales is one of those dark horse teams we always tend to lose to. We better step our game way up against England this weekend.

Indeed. I've lucked out with ONE early-ish England game tonight. At least the Eng/USA game is on Saturday morning. Good luck!

Same to you! I think Eng and USA should get out of the group no problem. I am a little worried about Wales being a pain in the rear.

Weirdo! Glad he was caught. I always prefer to have my reviews(for restaurants, hotels, etc.) anonymous with not much details on when I bought something or what I ordered. I have known people being harassed after leaving negative reviews via phone or e-mail.

Let's just enjoy the Football! A lot of late nights / early mornings ahead for those of us who actually just want to concentrate on the games.

Yep, all of my U.S. games and one Japan game will be at 4am here. I am sleeping at the same time as the kids the night before those games.

There’s more mass murder at higher levels of lethality with guns than without.

A gun can't shoot without someone squeezing the trigger. So let's release all prisoners because there will be no harm if there are no guns.

Posted in: Qatar opens World Cup with a message of inclusion See in context

I don't care less about their controversy or whatever. I am only interested in watching the games. People need to get over it and instead focus on the sport itself.

Yep, ALL countries that have hosted World Cup or Olympics have had their fair share of human rights abuses, controversies or bribes. People who focus on these things instead of the sport probably never cared about the sport to begin with. Where I come from, these people care about things like tweets, team names, who has/hasn't taken a vaccine and who is/isn't standing for the National Anthem. They don't spend a dime on any of the sports.

Posted in: Ticketmaster cancels public sale of Taylor Swift tickets See in context

I like the system Japan ticket companies do when it comes to bigger sporting events and some concerts. Have everyone sign up by a certain date then do a lottery on who can buy tickets. That prevents people wasting hours on buying something that bots have advantage in getting.

Maybe you're just not used to seeing many upvotes for pro-GOP posts. 

No, only one opinion is allowed around these parts. That is called "democracy".

Looks like a perfect picture for the ad campaign of their next election opponent. The problem though is that many elected officials have no opponent when election season comes around.

Just a very short while ago we were told that we were sexist and racist because of the poor box-office of Woman king.

Actually the woke and cancel culture are really conflicted with this film. Half want to see this, the other half are angry that the main start Letitia Wright is an anti-vaxxer lol

In order for people here to stop wearing masks, one of the infamous celebs is going to have to come out and show themselves not wearing a mask entering a store or restaurant. TV and social media are very influential here.

Why is this being heralded as a great victory for the Democrats?

Because U.S. politics has become like a sporting event for people on who gets bragging rights. You notice people on here that aren't even American somehow hop on the bandwagon.

Well darn. so far Stacy Abrams lost again.

I wonder if she will deny the results again.

and that the reason was because Black people either don't have IDs or access to polling centers lol

Posted in: On stand in 1/6 trial, Oath Keepers boss says he's a patriot See in context

This is the result of identity politics the GOP has been pushing for decades, demonization of those with political ideals different than the current Republican party per toxic partisanship propaganda, followed and exacerbated by Trumpism.

So no identity politics in the Democrat party calling every non-White conservative/Republican as whitewashed, mentally challenged or many of the other bigoted words that I probably can't repeat here?
