I'm really glad that player who scored the own goal scored that second one for Croatia. Bit of solace. :)
Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

His penalty record is why people rate him as I said at the time. He's been nowhere near the levels of say, Pickford.

He'll be sent to the Island of Elba. If he loses, then he'll be guillotined in front of the crowd. Like he's Lloris XVI.

Most certainly undeserved WC win, only Croatia scored a real goal here.


Catching up on the thread, this really made me laugh.

I'm increasingly of the opinion that Trumptonium is a deliberate comedy account.

France need 1 more goal to reinforce that safety net that Lloris so recklessly destroyed and seal the game (and make up for it).

I don't think they'll get it. Croatia will not win, anyway.

I just remembered that Lloris made a similar and really weird error in the qualifiers actually. They lost 2-1 away to Sweden which Sweden scoring in the final minute after he messed up.

France have certainly done their bit but Croatia can feel they could have done this, in history is just a score though.

We've got 14 minutes, I'm putting it past them harder than Mandzukic did Lloris.

As far as I'm concerned it's 2-2 right now and should go to penalties/ET.

France is going to wear two stars with severe dishonour.
