I am so freaking glad that both Messi and Ronaldo are gone. Sick to death with this silly Ronaldo and Messi COMPARISON!! For me they are both GREAT players. Who cares who is better???

GLAD both of them have been sent parking. NOW I CAN ENJOY THE WORLD CUP with the noisy comparison threatening to take away my peace of mind.

Wish the diving crying Nyemar will join them. He is such a drama queen.

Long live Mbappe, Cavani, Modric and Suarez



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

This world cup has been outstanding. The most exciting football I've seen in years.

Ronaldo had his moment as have many others. I'm sad to see both go because they have the ability to light up matches. Thankfully, there are plenty of others still there.

It's a world of megastars currently and the locsest one we have isn't even at the tournament!

Diego Maradona = Considerably Better Than:

Ronaldo > Messi


And both of them would be nothing players before:

- the football rule book was re written to make it easier for people to score goals

- the ball was redesigned and redesigned and redesigned and revised... to the point where

it is just about equal in atomic density to a balloon

- technological enhancements to footwear and new innovations in groundskeeping to make

playing surfaces faster.

Ronaldo and Messi are not the Greatest Of All Time.

I never compare players or get into the argument of who is greater. So many players have achieved great things and each of them bring something unique to the game. That's OK for me.

Maradona was outstanding but nowhere near the level of Messi in his prime at club level. For about five years Messi was utterly unbeatable.

GCSEs v O-levels: Are exams getting easier? Are students ...

22/08/2017 · Watch video · 'GCSE students are being SPOON-FED' Expert makes the case for O-levels STUDENTS are “spoon-fed” information in order to pass their GCSE exams, unlike the older ..

"In the O-levels we were expected to be far more precise. Everything had to be perfect. You were not allowed to be vague. In history GCSE, we were made to analyse things, whereas in the O-level, we were just made to learn a list of dates and facts and just put that on the page"

No young man - they didn't make you put things on a page with zero understanding - learning things and putting them on a page is what people do in a quiz or a crossword puzzle in their own time - not in a Cambridge O-Level History exam.


How 'hard' are GCSEs compared with 'O' levels?

"I think there are differences. For example, in my French O level, we had to do an unseen dictation, and unseen translation, French to English, and one English to French, and oral exam on a topic which was not disclosed to us beforehand, and a letter/essay on an unknown topic. All at the end of the school year, too, not in little chunks throughout the year. I came out with enough understanding of French to bumble my way round in the language without much diffculty.

DSs (who are doing German) seem to be given all translations beforehand to memorise, the same with dictation, are given the subject of their orals, and essays seem to have been replaced with short questions and answers. Plus, "coursework" is scattered throughout the school year. DS1, who is now in 6th form, got an A*, and appears unable to speak a word of useful German."

"In maths O-level, we couldn't use calculators and we hadn't done things like long multiplication for years"

I rest my case.

Actually, I do. Most of the people in South America is believing that there is a syndicate led by Senior Collina is scamming the WC using selectively using VAR to provide advantage to certain countries like England. So far there were 31 penalties given in this WC and only 2 penalties given to the South American team one to Peru n the other to Argentina which Messi missed. There were several very strong penalty claims were completely ignored n not even reviewed while the ‘English language international media’ is on a mission to vilify Neymar while robbing teams with major decisions.
I think one more dodgy penalty or decision in favor of England will break all hell loose with serious complains even by some remaining European teams like Sweden, Croatia, Russia etc.
Now they force him to appologize while digging even further shi.t

"People are focusing on Neymar, but if it was only Neymar, I'd be happy, but it's not only Neymar," Mourinho said on Russia Today after England's win.
"Every team has lots of diving, lots of pretending, lots of putting pressure on the referee...the game loses quality...and for me that was the negative point."

Harry kane is the man to watch now after flapping like a banana tree n American referee was blowing whistle everytime he did that. The guy can't dribble past a pillar but pretended on every occasion as if he's 2nd coming of Messi. You can't get away with these blatant robberies no more. From Ronaldo to Maradona, Rivaldo to Mourinho is bringing the heat to your backyard. One more dodgy penalty or flapping near penalty area there are bound to be outburst. Win fair scoring goals not by referee's help.

This has been going on in all the leagues. Juve was just the tip of the iceberg. Been happening for decades.

Is just that now is not just about making the world cup interesting but also about favouring specific teams.

We made it to the semi final, could nt crack athletico, but still got a lot of help along the way.

I expect England to do the same and finally lose to croatia

it's pretty obvious even to the blind that the Refs are choosing when to apply what the VAR shows and when not to.
