Still not convinced by Brazil. The tournament is still wide open. Engerlund could bring it home.

The current 2 play in a time that you cant tackle from behind to get the ball! Defenders were hard hitting then and if messi and ronaldo played back then they would score half the goals they do now! The younger generation dont remember Maradona enough but he took Napoli that had won f**k all before and nothing since he left, to glory in a time every superstar in the world played in Italian football

I wonder the age of some posters. To say Pele was the best but having seen what? a few clips on tv? That's ludicrous. Not many games were televised in the 1960s never mind Brazilian ones. At that rate why not have Stanley Matthews in the top 3?

Pele was around long after Stanley Mathews. Now ure being daft

Bloody madness mentioning Stanley Matthews alright when we all know the Dixie Dean is the top top top England player ever produced.

Rubbish. Cliff Bastin!!

There’ll never be another Len Shackleton

Hope this confirms Messi is no Pele when it comes to the World Stage.

The same Messi who dragged Argentina to the WC final in 2014 and won player of the tournament and only lost the final to a goal in extra time? That Messi.

We certainly live in a world of now.

That was a ridiculous FIFA PR decision, Messi wasn't in the top 10 players in 2014.

Yea Messi is all PR. Must have been PR that knocked Portugal out in the group stages that year too!

Didn't say that.  And what has Portugal going out at the group stages in 2014 got to do with the price of fish??

Why is it a surprise? The internal going ons have been well reported, they needed a last ditch game to qualify! Trouble with managers and players!

I picked them regardless for tonight thinking that this was the game they needed to win! Pants

Yes so they've now resorted to a black taxi driver as manager.

A Brazilian guy I know through work told me before the start of the tournament that he didn't think any South American sides would reach the quarter finals.  I thought he was off his head.  Maybe he knows something.

Ernie Hunt, Coventry City footballer aged 75.  He scored the Goal of The Season in 1970-71, the famous "donkey kick" goal.  It was actually Willie Carr who flicked it up for Hunt to volley in.

As I said earlier England have a chance but expect them to go out on penalties in QF as usual to someone like Portugal.
England can't meet Portugal before the semis.

The semis will be two teams from Groups A to D and two teams from Groups E to H.

So it's impossible to have, say, all three of Brazil, Germany and England in the semis.

I think I'm right in saying that if Brazil win their group and Germany finish 2nd in theirs, which is very possible at the moment, then Brazil and Germany would meet in the last 16.

So no more "everyone loves Carlow" it seems.

Their hurlers are a disgrace too.

No St Galls players in the squad. Must be the first time in a while.

As I understand it Chris Kerr and Conor Burke opted out of the panel after the Down game.  St Gall's represented by manager Lenny Harbinson!

11
More or less the same Antrim team that lost by 7 to Down in Ulster, with keeper Chris Kerr replaced by Andrew Hasson and Patrick McBride moves to no 10 and is replaced by Colm Duffin at no 15.  Mark Sweeney moves from the half forwards to take over from the suspended Ricky Johnston at centre back.  Declan Lynch seems to be listed as sub goalkeeper.  Both teams will fancy a win in this one.  Home advantage might give Offaly the edge.

Offaly by two.

Will be shown on the BBC iPlayer.

Antrim failed to get out of Div 4 this year.

Down by 6 or 7.

Desperate stuff on Sat evening.  Poor from Armagh and Fermanagh under Gallagher and McMenamin are becoming the poster boys for anti-football, diving and play acting.
