    Excuse me but what? 2010 a good world cup lol

    easily the worst after 2002. I already mentioned my reasons for 2006 being the best.

In terms of the quality of football displayed and overall entertainment factor, 2010 probably edges it ahead of 2006. 2014 was meh, and upon revisiting my earlier statement, I'd put it behind 2006, and ahead of 2002, which was by far the worst tournament.

    2002 was the worst because it was full of quality teams who flopped.
    2010 was the second worst because of how poor the quality of the teams were.

    2014 was pretty good. But again, I do believe 2006 had far better squads. I kind of miss the big Brazilian teams were used to.

    i thought he was rising again
    Jesus H Christ, thatís the most mediocre England squad Iíve ever seen at a major tournament and thatís saying something. Besides Kane (who is world class)...just a massive lack of quality in every area of the squad.

    Look at the traditional football countries, now look at their squads. Blimey, the depth of football has fallen low.

    Don't disagree with you at all.

    International football has declined massively.

    I'm not sure I agree tbh. Look at the Brazil and France squads. Those are absolutely massive teams.

    He's a businessman. What's to say he wouldn't make the right choice when in office? He's not kept abreast of military intelligence in the Middle East because he doesn't have access to it and perhaps doesn't have the time to be. But that's not to say he wouldn't make an astute decision when he has all the facts in front of him.

    you'd think that English football having insane amounts of money and being able to afford literally every technology, medicine or trainer out there would benefit the growth of talented players, but it seems that their NT is getting worse and worse every tournament, astonishing.

    every single club in EPL and Championship is richer than most football federation out there, are they really not able to build massive youth academies with competent specialists developing their kids?

    I agree

    This is one of the reasons why a lot of people tend to favour like world cup 98 the most, because it was in the 00s when club football began to truly take over.

    Honda puts boot into fired Japan coach Halilhodzic



    TOKYO: Japan forward Keisuke Honda has slammed former national team boss Vahid Halilhodzic's methods as the fallout from his abrupt dismissal as coach continued in the run-up to the World Cup.

    The talismanic 31-year-old, who had become a peripheral figure under Halilhodzic, told Japanese broadcaster NHK that he was frustrated at the rigid tactics being deployed by the firebrand Franco-Bosnian.


    "I don't have any regrets (about the change of leadership)," Honda said in a documentary that aired late on Monday (May 14).

    "To submit myself to the kind of football Halilhodzic played in order to get picked, that would be shameful for me," sniffed the former AC Milan player.

    "I'm proud that I've stayed true to myself."

    Honda, currently playing for Mexico's Pachuca, shot to fame at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa when his goals helped Japan reach the last 16.


    But his relationship with Halilhodzic, who took the Japan job in 2015 before being dumped in April, had become increasingly fractious over the past year.

    Honda, instantly recognisable with his spiky, bleach-blond hair, sat glumly on the bench when Japan secured their spot at this year's World Cup in Russia by beating Australia 2-0 at home last August.

    The Japan Football Association blamed Halilhodzic's sacking on a breakdown of communication with players, a charge that has prompted the former Algeria coach to consider legal action.

    Halilhodzic claimed there were only two players he did not see eye to eye with, thought by many to be Honda and Borussia Dortmund playmaker Shinji Kagawa - Japan's two best-known players.

    Honda, meanwhile, doubled down on bold statements he made in years past about Japan winning the World Cup, despite failing to progress beyond the last 16 in five previous attempts.

    "I know I promised the Japanese people we would win the World Cup," he said.

    "I have not forgotten that. Frankly that's why I want to go to the World Cup and show how much it means to me to fight for the title.

    "What I can't accept is that there is a situation in which I might be dropped - not with the World Cup so close."

    New Japan coach Akira Nishino is expected to name his 23-man World Cup squad on May 31.

    Why is there a corner flag at the half-way line? Why are they threatening to bomb this cornerflag with dynamite? What is Messi doing at an empty football stadium?
