Chijanofuji

Comment: After my heavy defeat in round two I need to quickly regroup and get the win in the final group stage match.
So we're going all out now!
Ganbarimasu!

Athenayama

1. Germany (C) 2. Brazil 3. Switzerland 4. Ghana 5. Iran 6. Croatia 7. Mexico 8. Belgium 9. Wales 10. Tunisia 11. Qatar (R)


Comment: I have one "intra team" duel (Croatia-Belgium) and many of my other teams either aren't much motivated or face stronger opponents. I could think it over for hours, change the order endlessly and miss the deadline! So let's go with this line up and pray.
I also hope that in the other game my old friend Kimyama will do the job and at least not lose. That said, I just found out that Pitinosato (who's becoming a friend too, dare I say?) sent him a big bag full of money.... So what will prevail? Friendship or greed?

Some admin notes....

I will need to collect your list of penalty takers for the quarterfinals (I already have your list for the octofinals/round of 16), BEFORE the round of 16 matches begin. I intend to send that out tomorrow (i.e. whilst there are still a few games to be played), to give everyone over 24 hours to make their picks - if they need it.

Also, I will try to get the rota for refiojis for the round of 16/octofinals up as soon as possible, so please keep an eye out for that, as the the time frame will be small.

BUT, if need be, you can send to me your round of 16 line-up if you are limited for time, and I will see that it goes to the correct refioji.

Group C Round 3 - Day 2 :

And today was decisive as Kotonami won! He scores 2 goals at the first line thanks to the (surprise?) loss of Denmark combined with the win of Argentina and breaks the chain of Andrasoyama. So we'll see Kotononami in the octofinals! Andrasoyama will fight in the saucer competition Final score yet to be seen.

                       
  Andrasoyama     Goal H Chain H   Goal A Chain A   Kotononami  
1. Denmark L -   X - 2   W Argentina ®  
2. Spain   -     -     W England  
3. Brazil   -     -     L Ecuador  
4. USA © W -     -     W Mexico  
5. Belgium   -     -       Uruguay  
6. Ghana   -     -       Belgium  
7. Australia W -     -       Serbia  
8. Wales L -     -       South Korea  
9. Poland ® L -     -     L Iran ©  
10. Cameroon   -     -       Ghana  
11. Costa Rica   -     -     W Tunisia  
                       

Nekonishiki will have regrets after this. Krisachiyama's chain is broken at line 2 and Nekonishiki has a potential goal there.
Well, I just wanted to let a cliffhanger but Nekonishiki has actually also won altogether as his (R) team, Mexico, won at the first line. All Krisachyama can do is some damage control with a win by Portugal. If Portugal win, only 1 more goal for Nekonishiki, if Portugal don't win, 2 more goals will be scored.

Group A - Round 3 standings

Kimyama vs Pitinosato

Three decided slots, well, Kimyama won’t already get that goal, though. Chain break at most at Slot #5.

Chijanofuji vs Athenayama

The last slots have been decided, but no chance to score those goals for both players.

Group_A_Round_3_2.jpg

 

Group D - Round 3 standings

Kurosaki vs Asapedroryu

This match has the most decided bouts. Asapedroryu has to wait until Friday to know if he scored a goal or not.

Nantonoyama vs Lordshamrockyama

And no colors in this one match yet. We’ll see more tomorrow.

Group E Round 3 - Day 2 :

Well, here Spain will play an important role. With a win Finngall will also win this duel. With a draw, Ganzohnesushi will break Finngall's chain at line 2 and will have the possibility to win this depending on Portugal and Switzerland at  line 3 as at line 4 he is weak after Denmark's loss. 

                       
  Ganzohnesushi     Goal H Chain H   Goal A Chain A   Finngall  
1. France L -     -       Spain ®  
2. Spain   -     -     L France

10. Japan ®   -     -     L Wales  
11. Costa Rica   -     -     L Qatar  
                       

Jakusotsu's chain breaks at line 3 s he has to win this before that. Netherlands did the job at line 1, Spain also have to do it because there are Germany and Brazil waiting on the other side. That said, we already saw many upsets that it's very difficult to predict anything.

Halftime report - Group F

Game 1 is still very much undecided. Will Baku be able to score his first career goal?

Baku                 0:0     Spytoneryu
(Croatia)                    (Belgium)
                             
Germany               :   W  USA
Brazil                :      Croatia
Croatia ®             :      Germany
Serbia                :      Belgium ®
Poland            L   :      Cameroon ©
Saudi Arabia      L   :      Ghana
Ecuador           L   :   L  Saudi Arabia
Belgium               :   W  Argentina
Qatar             L   :   L  Poland
Tunisia           W   :   W  Australia
Canada ©              :   L  Ecuador

 

The direct Duel Ecuador-Senegal breaks Oshirokita's chain in slot 5, and it would be looking good for jomojo if there wasn't the liability of his R-team. If they succeed he could be challenging his aite for the group lead.

Oshirokita           0:0     jomojo
(Canada)                     (Morocco)

Japan                x:x  W  Tunisia

 

Halftime report - Group G

Although his chain is bound to break in slot 6, a win for Yarimotsu looks quite likely to retain the lead in this group.

Yarimotsu            0:0     andonishiki
(Serbia)                     (Switzerland)
                             
Netherlands       W   :      Japan
Mexico ©          W   :      Belgium
Brazil                :   W  England
England           W   :      Brazil
Morocco               :      Ghana
Denmark           L  x:   W  Mexico
Iran              L  x:   W  Australia
Serbia ®             x:   L  Ecuador ©
Ecuador           L  x:      Switzerland ®
South Korea          x:      Costa Rica
Australia         W  x:x  L  Denmark

 

The chances for Achiyama score any goals in the group stage are dwindling.

Achiyama             0:0     Jarayama
(Cameroon)                   (Brazil)

Costa Rica            :   W  England
Ghana                 :   W  USA
Australia         W   :   W  Mexico
Cameroon ®            :      Canada
Germany               :   W  Australia
Uruguay               :   L  Saudi Arabia ©

Well, my feeling so far about this World Cup (only regarding the games) is pretty positive. A vast majority of the games (I watched them all) is very pleasant to watch and some were extremely spectacular. I don't know what will happen at games with "no tomorrow" but up to now I'm satisfied.
It makes me wonder if it wouldn't be a great idea to play this World Cup (or even the Euro) from now on at mid-season instead of June-July when the players are exhausted after 10 months of competition.... And this guy writes that despite the fact that he looooves to see an international event closing the football season.

Your thoughts?

Well, if Saudi Arabia-Egypt-Greece turns from a bad joke into reality we might see a split between summer and winter...

Apart from the joke, honestly, haven't you seen a much better quality in the games compared with previous World Cups? And don't you believe the major reason has to do wth the fact that the players are in much better shape than they would be at the end of the season in June?

I've heard differently from German coaches, claiming the level of exhaustion is way higher due to the tightened pre-WC schedule.

Have to agree with them. Teams that play in UEFA competitions have been playing at least 2 matches a week since beginning of September.

Plus, in a normal WC, players join their national teams 2 to 3 weeks before the tournament starts. This time, many players had matches the weekend before the WC started and joined their teams less than a week before first match.

Politics aside, I am enjoying this World Cup... possibly because (having changed time zones), I no longer have to get up at 3am in the morning to watch England play :-)
