I'm not really much of a football fan these days but it was very watchable.

Congrats to France, and well done to the hosts.

The reply from Scott is right, when you go to the impoverished third world the price of life is cheap. :)

Finally, a great final (best since 1986), to cap a great tournament - best since 2002.

They (FIFA/Putin) got this one right at every level.

I have to say I liked the fact that VAR added to the controversy in some ways, which is what I like. I don't mind the odd bad decisions wrecking a game as that's human, and sport is human endeavour and should reflect all our flaws and triumphs. People that whinge about needing more technology in sports to solve "problems" (a) do not understand technology and (b) do not understand that our flaws are as much a part of being human.

Russia 2018 also exposed the poisonous British press for what it is - the media was FULL of negative stories about Russians. The British press/media really is toxic and manipulative, and sets the agenda, tone, and parameters of all political discourse in the UK. They are judge jury and executioner here, and I celebrate each and every time they are exposed or defeated in the objectoves.

Just watch what a field day they will have with Qatar. I am not a fan of Qatar getting the WC. If it was the Middle Easts turn then there are some much much more deserving ones like Egypt, Iran, Turkey who have big football traditions. Qatar bought the WC, and have imposed a sacrilegious break of tradition into the global football calendar. This puts me in a quandary. On the one hand I want the treatment the British media will meet out to Qatar to be met with runaway, best ever successful tournament, but given what the Qataris have done to football I want 2022 to fall apart (in a non-life threatening way of course).

Unfortunately during final on the field 3 degenerats from Pussi Riot disguised as policemen ran out.



In the rest i liked the finals.

Why couldn't Putin share his umbrella? The optics are terrible, everyone gets soaked except him, even the guy holding it.

If that was Macron he would have invited all three leaders under it.

Sorry, but there weren't. Putin got his umbrella and then it took 2-3 minutes for the rest to show up. And it was so obvious that even my 6-year-old son said "why don't they get an umbrella?"
Why not simply say: yeah, that wasn't a smart move to only give Putin an umbrella, instead of claiming "there were a lot of umbrellas". It is a simple mistake, it can happen, but with lying about this little mistake, it makes everything else implausible.
That's exactly why you always have to take Russian reports with a grain of salt. Nearly as bad as American Fox "News".

Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

The rain began unexpektedly and it took time to bring umbrells.
The guard chose his president which is quit predictable.
I did not pay attention to it at all.

This is such a trifl compared to Western lies about Russia that it"s ridiculous even to compare.

Yes it is, but a lie "there were lots of umbrella", which everybody could see there weren't until 2 minutes later some other guards came running in, is still a lie or a twist of reality.
You don't lose your dignity if it starts to rain and it takes some time to bring more than one umbrealla, but you do lose your credibility if you twist reality for absolutely unnecessary things like this, as you rightfully claim.
You Russians should do better. We've seen enough about this from the idiot in the White House, you don't need to copy it.

(your youtube link doesn't work, but I've seen it live).

And here was me thinking that Russia doesn't let the NATO help people on their territory :D

Even if I tend to avoid watching soccer, it seemed like a nice tournament. I never understood why there were cries that Russia shouldn't host it before.
