The OfFISHial Argentina V Netherlands Semi Final Thread!

Post by grecian » Mon Jul 07, 2014 6:55 pm

Just a great game!

Argentina sucked the Life out of Belgium when they went 1-0 ahead in the Quater Final and I think that they will do that again from a very pedestrian Dutch team

You stop Robben and you stop Holland...

I'll go a cheaky 2-1 to Argentina...

Looks to be another really thing game, but i think it is all up to Holland and how they play, against Spain they looked the goods, against Australia they didn't look so good, and they have continued on that same way in the rest of the WC.

The Argies are not a great team, but i will go for them as long as Holland does not bring their 1st game form along.

Ofcourse Argentina will win, but I was secretly hoping for a Germany Netherlands final. Germany winning in the last minute by an undeserved penalty.

Used to love the Cruyff, Repp, Neeskens Dutch team of yore. More than England, truth be told. I cried for days when they lost THAT final against Germany. Have hated Germany and Gerd Muller and Frans Beckenbauer ever since. Supported the Dutch from then until THAT other final when they mistook the competition for an ankle kicking, tug of shirt event.

So, don't much like Argentina either but I'm rooting for them to get through and win the World Cup. Vamos Argentina!

Some observations from the first half...

* The Dutch pressing in the midfield to try and and hurry the Argie midfield into mistakes

* Van Persie and Robben been kept quiet thus far

* Same for Messi

* Lavezzi causing problems on the Dutch left hand side. The Dutch fullback seems to be struggling with his pace and he is getting behind him often.

* Argentina slightly on top at the moment. Have had the better chances (although not much to speak of), while the Dutch have not created much up front. They seem to be hoofing it up to Van Persie and Robben in the hope they create something.

To me both sides are trying to negate the others potential strengths, and because of that are canceling each other out, i hope it frees up a bit in the 2nd half, or we look like going to spot kicks.

The Dutch didn't deserve to win it, complete defensive playing to blunt the other teams strenghts, it was the right result if you ask me.

I can't remember a have never in the WC having seen a team play so defensive game that they could win, against a team that is way better than you of course you bolster your defense and flood the midfield, but why do it in a game you can win?

Of course the Argies also played defensive, but no were near as defense orienteted as the Dutch, do look at the stats of the game.

And please don't insult people if their views do not match yours, it is a yobbo trait, that shows you have no manners.

If it goes to penalties I favour the Germans. It will be interesting to hear what Joachim Low has to say over the next few days. They had Brazil worked out to a tee

You''ve obviously just started following the sport recently, so i'll help you out.
At that level, no matter how much you've "worked out your opponent", you don't score 7 goals unless the other team is a having the worst game of their lives, which is what happened.
Brazil did not loose because Low outsmarted Scolari. They lost because 3 out of their 4 players defenders played worse than i do in my sunday 5-a-side at the local park.
David Luiz's performance was pathetic. He lost every single divided ball he disputed and 9 out of ten times he did not even try to go back to his post in time.

I am curious whether they will change the colour of their shirt again.

No I disagree. Its one thing to beat an opponent its another to put 7 past them on their home turf. Granted Brazil were overrated and playing on adrenalin but Germany hunted down Brazil like a pack of Wolves. Columbia turned up expecting to loose, conversely Low had his team in the right state of mind. He comments before the game were right on. The bad news for Germany is that Argentina know what to expect. The good news for Germany is that they have seen the opposition take their penalties.

This is rubbish. Low and his backroom staff had obviously taken a long look at the Brazilians and identified key weaknesses.
