It’s cool, I like delusional optimists!
Now it's 12. Stop the fight.
I hate to dampen your pitch, but there's no way that the US can win this one! You bunch of big bullies .
Yeah it’s time....
You just wait! Delusional optimism my ..........
Reminds me of my own footie days - I would be on the Thai team. We lost one game 15-0.
Yeah, and at some point it becomes a bit callous...
We are one step closer to a France-USA quarter-final!
Watch the second goal from Sweden vs Chile. WOW!
Well, that's no fun
Somehow, I managed to see only one goal of the Thailand-USA match (goal #8). Every time I checked, I thought, well it's soccer, they're not going to score again.
I just watched the game over my lunch break in a restaurant. 13-0! I have never seen anything like that before. One girl scored 5 on her own.
Every player on USA was reasponsible for the win not just the stars.
Its score on offence and don't allow scoring on defence.
Thailand couldn't get the ball past the half line must less score.
And who will win?
Yes it was lovely!
Excellent question! I will be very torn, but will probably have a slight preference for the home team winning it’s first World Cup.
Word on the street is the US dropped a hint that China is sitting right next door and..
FIFA have just announced that an appeal has been launched by the Thai football association against the size of the ball used in yesterday's football match between the USA and Thailand.
Under the terms of regulation F1217: 34 appendix 3b, The Thal international Football Association claim that the ball used favoured the US team due to the circumference being larger than that prescribed ball for smaller persons.
The impact of using a larger ball is said to disadvantaged the Thai team who where unable to kick the ball as hard as normal, giving a distinct advantage to the taller US team.
The FIFA are considered a rematch between the two teams. However, in order to provide a more evenly balanced return match, it is proposed to field 22 players in total, but 7 US team members will represent Thailand and will play in the Thai goal in support of the current Thai goalkeeper.
Furthermore, a smaller, softer ball will be used which will enable the Thai team to kick the ball further.
USA players will play in their bare feet, with their legs tethered at the ankle so as to reduce their length of stride to 15.5 inches only.
A final decision to the location of the rematch will be made on Friday.
This was, and remains my attempt to bring a little HUMOUR to the situation. It was clearly a devastating outcome for the Thai ladies football team who took the result with great dignity.
For anyone who would like to discuss my posting I will be very happy to.
The team's vulgar gloating over their goals demonstrates again that the notion sports builds character is preposterous.
Oh, it builds character, but not necessarily good character .
I haven't watched any of this yet, but I'm disappointed to hear of the US ladies acting like that. It doesn't sound like a good look, gloating over a team they're clearly a lot better than.
Don't be Ugly Americans
