Don’t insult the women, Greek women are an attractive bunch!


We should make it interesting and play Pivaric.

Strinic with some confidence and playing against a shit team can be a thing of beauty!

The Greeks are subpar, but we must be wary of that early goal in front of a madhouse over there...play like the first game ended 0-0, concentration at a maximum. Ajmoooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!

Does Lovren take a seat?

Also I’d move Modric back to his old spot.

Agree, Brozović was a non factor

I thought Brozovic was fine (He had the passes that sent Strinic and vrsaljko through for our goals) it’s more about tactics. But now the Greeks need to go forward and press Modric can control the game more in his natural spot. At the 10 spot he won’t have the ball as much.

There will be acres of space, no excuse not to blow them out of the water again...we are much better when playing on the counter, period. I wish we had Pjaca for this game, he would wreak havoc....maybe Vlasic and Perisic on the wings?

Imo Rakitic and Modric should stay right where they are. Rakitic is so much better playing from deep and spraying laser balls left and right.

Agree. I wouldn't mind seeing an approach similar to that in Ukraine. Work our flanks in a more defensive fashion. Maybe even bring in Mitrovic and push Vida out wide with Vrsaljko on the left.

There is still another game to play, nothing to celebrate yet.

Well you just need something to fill the void that's left in your life. Lois has her knitting, Chris has his video games, Meg's learning how to drive, and me, I like the sauce…

I called 2+ last time and am doing so again.

With a team that was in near crisis, a new coach and a win like this will allow the team to flow fluidly and have Modric have energy flow through him like a fukin Jedi.

May the Force be with us.
