United fans tell Glazer to fuck off, by invading the stadium causing United vs Liverpool to be postponed. Unfortunately, the Glazers will stay.

Dick Advocaat can't keep his eyes dry when Feyenoord opens the score. His final match in his 40th season as a manager in football.

Atalanta did well with the Dutch input. Now let's hope Frank de Boer took notice and takes these guys to Euro2021.

Napoli bottled it big time, a home game against Verona was the easiest opponenet that the teams vying for the Champions League spots had, and they played so badly. I knew it would happen from a few weeks ago when they conceded an equalizer in the 94th to Cagliari again at home.

When I posted, it was 9-9 and I didn't even dare to watch anymore.

I feel sorry for De Gea. Such a great goalkeeper, yet so weak on penalties, and of course he had to be the one to miss as well :(

And the reason why I hate shootouts? It is too much down to chance, so you know that even if your team were favourites in the match, it's now more ir less 50-50 ... and most likely one player will get the blame for his team losing.

United were cowardly, when it got to extra time they played for penalties, i.e they saved 2! substitutes to come on as penalty specialists. Put two subs on earlier and go and try and win the match.

Aye, Utd were pish. The players didnt have much intensity for most of the match and Ole surely screwed tge pooch by not makin changes. Ok, maybe the bench is shite but fresh legs at least could have made a difference. James shoulda been on for Rashford after 60mins.
I 'enjoy' the rollercoaster of pens. Shit to lose but at least it was only the Europa Leaguex

Curaçao (coach Guus Hiddink, interim coach Patrick Kluivert) is trying to qualify for the World Cup (they never succeeded in past attempts) but it will be very difficult to get there. After this victory in the vid above (5 June), they had a draw vs Guatemala (8 June) and ended up as winner of group C in qualification round 1. Up next: 2nd round vs Panama (winner of group D). In two legs.

12 June 2021


15 June 2021

If Curaçao can settle with Panama, it will enter a group of eight countries in the third round with the strongest teams from the region: Mexico, the US, Costa Rica, Jamaica and Honduras. The top three of that group qualify directly for the World Cup. The number four plays a play-off against a country from South America, Asia or Oceania.


@LooseCannon Canada (who reached the tournament in 1986 and lost all group matches without scoring vs France, Hungary and the Soviet Union) is in the same phase as Curaçao. They are facing Haiti:
12 June 2021 17:00 UTC−4 / Stade Sylvio Cator, Port-au-Prince

15 June 2021 20:00 UTC−5 / SeatGeek Stadium, Bridgeview (United States)
