Welcome to another edition of: DAGOODS = Ratings
And I am your party host, the one and only: SUN KING OF XT, for sure :happy:!

Well peons, everyone knows Brazil is the TOP DOG in Conmebol and all of football for that matter. Argentina comes in 2nd place (in the Conmebol) followed by Uruguay/Peru in 3rd place :D:happy::happy:

That’s pretty much crystal clear, common knowledge if you will :howler: but when it comes to the old crappy continent things get a little more complex! It’s not crystal clear at all…

PEONS: “Dagoods what are you talkiiiiiiiiiiiing about?”
Shut your mouths peasants and let Dagoods break it down for you! Don’t interrupt Dagoods when Dagoods is talking to himself :happy:!

Allow Dagoods to provide some interesting statistics:

ITALY:

FIFA World Cup
Winner (4): 1934, 1938, 1982, 2006
Runner-up (2): 1970, 1994
Third Place (1): 1990
Fourth Place (1): 1978

UEFA European Championship
Winner (1): 1968
Runner-up (1): 2000
Third Place (1): 1988
Fourth Place (1): 1980
and now

Germany:

FIFA World Cup
Winner (3): 1954, 1974, 1990
Runner-up (4): 1966, 1982, 1986, 2002
Third Place (3): 1934, 1970, 2006
Fourth Place (1): 1958

UEFA European Championship
Winner (3): 1972, 1980, 1996
Runner-up (3): 1976, 1992, 2008
Third Place (0)
Fourth Place (0)
Uhmmmmmm pretty damn close right? If we were going to solely make a decision based on numerical facts…well then most people would choose GERMANY over ITALIA, right?
But Dagoods knows and understands that 4 WC’s >>> than 3 WC’s…
But Germany has reached the WC finals 7 times, that’s one more than the Italy.
Germany pisses all over Italia when it comes to winning Euro Cups. Well what about the UCL’s Dagoods? You should definitely INCLUDE UCL’s…
Uhmmmmmmmmm NOT exactly, Dagoods is not comparing and contrasting both leagues! This is between both National Teams. But Dagoods is a crowd pleaser so here it is:

UEFA Champions League
Italy 11 wins/14 Runs-Up
Germany 6 wins/7 Runs-up
Obviously Italia has the upper hand…
So lets ask the experts…hey BRAZILIANS and ARGENTINIANS who do you guys fear the most/respect the most?
How about Europeans? Hey guys WHICH TEAM do you consider the best of your continent? Is it GERMANY or ITALY?
Personally, if Dagoods had to choose I’d have to go with NEITHER. These two footy nations don’t scare Dagoods one bit! One team defends and plays anti-football and the other team fields a bunch of mechanical zombies out there, all they do is run around for 90 mins…
Quite Frankly, Dagoods would fear a DUTCH all-time XI wayyyyyyy more than a German/or Italian all-time XI.
Why? Cause the Dutch can actually dribble and play more of a S. American style of football :happy::happy::happy::howler:. Dagoods can just see it now:

-----------------------------Van Der Sar----------------------
De Boer---------------Stam-------------Koeman----------------Krol
----------------------Rijkaard-----------Davids/Neeskens---------
--------Gullit/ROBBEN :proud: --------------------------------------Cruyff
----------------------Bergkamp---------Van Basten-------------
OOOOUUUUCHH
Now that’s a team to fear :D:D:D

Your thoughts your thoughts…

Stats back Germany, but Serie A has almost always been a stronger league - and these are two leagues where the majority of players are not foreign - so that gets Italy over the line IMO.

That clown is not knowledgable enough to know about Van Hanegem & has put Robben in the team. To think of it, the buffoon has made a thread comparing Italy & Germany & has put up a Dutch all-time team in that!

The attention whore has opened about 50 threads since he fled from the mental asylum. Why you people bother to take him seriously?

Dagoods' All-Time Oranje XI is not bad but could be better.

For a start, add some authenticity and make it a 4-3-3 (or even 3-4-3).

---------------------(1) Van der Sar----------------------
---------------------(3) R. Koeman-----------------------
-----(2) Stam---------------------------(5) Krol----------
---------------------(4) Rijkaard-------------------------
-----(6) Gullit---------------------(8) Neeskens-----------
--------------------(10) Bergkamp------------------------
(7) Cruijff-----------------------------(11) Rensenbrink----
---------------------(9) Van Basten----------------------

Coach: Rinus Michels


Cruijff and Neeskens are out of position but have enough quality to play in their respective positions. This is a truly amazing team.

Also, make your team a 3-4-2-1, pushing Gullit back to centre midfield with Cruyff & Bergkamp behind Van Basten or a 3-4-1-2 with Cruyff having a free role behind the strikers.

But wait, we can discuss this in any all-time nations thread in the history forum, right? But, sadly people here seem to be a lot more interested in talking trash in the world football forum. Hardly anyone visits history forum.

Brazil and Argentina fear/respect Italy and Germany as worthy adversaries exactly because of the style they play.

Holland they like to watch but don't fear as it is a kind of positive football they usually do better and more effective themselves.

I don't think there's much of anything between Italy and Germany. They're even as regards NT competition.

the 4-3-3 never----------ever WON Holland any cups now did it? Out with the old - in with the new.

Van Hanegem is a worthy bench player and so is ROBBEN :D...but I would start both Gullit and Cruyff Duuuuuuuuuuuuh!

In all honesty, an all-time Holland would give all the TOP DOGS a run for their money!

LOL @ Dagoods and his threads!

Italy.



EDIT// Congrats on surpassing the 10k posts.
The attention whore has opened about 50 threads since he fled from the mental asylum. Why you people bother to take him seriously?
10,000x’s Dagoods!
Well well well…what do we have here puppets?
Dagoods reaches a new milestone, 10K baby!
Dagoods is officially a bloody old timer :D, well unlike many other “Legends” Dagoods is still going strong baby! I don't have any gray hair, no high cholesterol, and definitly no erection problems :happy:.

So what does this mean now? Will Dagoods be offered a FM role? :D:D:D thank you for the offer but NAaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh Dagoods will pass! Dagoods is not a sell out!

Thank you Rihana!

Hey Scorncerer,

They cannot help themselves, these people need DAGOODS!
After 06 Dagoods chose to take a break well it lasted 2 years…Dagoods was in and out of XT, not fully committed!

Dagoods wanted the red door of Dagoods house painted black
No colors anymore Dagoods wanted them to turn black…:happy::happy::happy:

But last Oct. something incredible happened! Dagoods was home giving out candy to the young ones. Then all of the sudden this kid wearing a red cape came to my door. This was not your typical costume, this kid had a “D” crest on his chest rather than the typical “S” :happy:.

Dagoods: And who are you supposed to be little man? Superman huh…? :howler:

Little Kid: No, DAGOODS :eek::proud:!

Then it HIT ME, I knew right then and there: IT WAS TIME!
Dagoods is now back/full time basis baby! And Dagoods is doing it for the kids, for the little microbes/the CHILDREN :happy::strong::strong:!

If you compare the NT, then it is Germany all over. They may have one less world cup title but have had more better campaigns in WC. Piss all over the italians when it comes to EC. No matter how good or bad their squad is, are always contenders and have a habit of winning things even as underdogs.
