    From what I saw, it was mostly families with children. It's summer and school is out now. From what I hear only Reus bothered to actually go to them to write autographs and take photos, everyone else sped off in limos with tinted windows.

    Argentina played with one man this tournament.

    In 2014 they played with 2 maybe 3 tops. LOL

    Do you read the german press? Cause that is not a word I would use to describe the treatment of this team basically since the Confed Cup & U21s ended last summer lol.

    They were getting **** on even before Erdogate gave the far right a reason to pitch about the teams inclusivity

    I was making a joke about the fans at the airport.

    People were concerned going into this tournament (including myself) because they were not on form recently.

    I think that when you factor in everything, putting the match into context, Germany's performance and role in the result is overstated. Brazil played a big part in that, which isn't Germany's fault mind you. The rest I agree with.

    I remember referees who felt Beckham shouldn't have been sent off against Argentina letting him get away with sundry nasty tackles for about three years afterwards.

    Ok, I laughed.

    Sadly. it is likely funny because it’s true.

    I don't know, I think you are.

    Not to mention this sly little nugget from 4 years ago which has nothing to do at all with this tournament and the game against South Korea.

    Granted, but I'm going to say it anyway?

    This might be the most ridiculous thing I've read on this Soccer forum.

    Germany, now 5-13-5 against Brazil all-time, plays against them as the HOST NATION, in their own STADIUM, in front of almost 100,000 of their OWN FANS and humiliates them to the tune of SEVEN to ONE, in the SEMI-FINALS of the World Cup.

    BRAZIL.

    HOST NATION.

    SEMI-FINALS.

    SEVEN to ONE.

    SEVEN goals.

    If it didn't matter, you wouldn't see the abject adulation that Brazil is feeling and has expressed repeatedly throughout a range of fora.

    It mattered a great deal.

    It's one of the most historic performances in the World Cup of all time.

    Germany sucking in 2018 has nothing to do with that.

    Look, I don't know what your problem is, but if you' think I'm here to gloat you're very mistaken. The only thing that would resemble that is my saying I think Germany were overrated coming in, and they were. That's still not me gloating because I feel no emotion about the result. If you want to see what gloating looks like, look at the rest of thread.

    I didn't say it didn't matter. I very clearly referenced their performance. Look at the side they faced and look at that same side's performance. Germany played well and the scoreline is impressive, but that doesn't mean the performance matched the scoreline. The play of Brazil's lineup, which didn't include Thiago Silva or Neymar and which was poor enough then when you look at that attack much less if you think of it now, factored in notably to the result. And I'm not the only one who thinks Germany were overrated then.

    Germany in 2018 has plenty to do with that when you look at the players that are still there and that were heralded at the time. Hence why I brought it up.

    I get it, you're upset they're out. Still do us both a favor and actually read what you're quoting and respond accordingly.

    Four years later.

    You think it's a massive coincidence that World Cup champions keep going out in the group stage?

    Are you saying that 4 out of the last 5 World Cup champions were actually overrated all along?

    As I said, you're trying to make an argument about 2014 based on data in 2018.

    It doesn't work. I'm not buying this revisionist bull****.

    LOL. Nice edit.

    I think they're different teams that have different reasons.

    As you said is wrong like pretty much the rest of what you're posting. I'm to a degree making an argument about 2018 based on 2014 which has been incredibly obvious since the first post you referenced. Yeah, four years later and you've still got Ozil, Muller, Khedira, Hummels, Boateng, Neuer and of course Super Toni Kroos still featuring in the lineup, the majority of which are still major players for Germany.

    That's great that you're not buying it. I'd prefer if that way. The moment you do I'll start to question myself. Considering your posting history on this part of the forum including on this one, you should keep the hypocritical revisionist remarks to yourself.

    The fact that you minimize the impact of a four year span between tournaments so easily says more than my posting history ever could.

    I'm not minimizing the impact of a four year span. You're overstating it.

    So, a 57th ranking nation beat the 1st. I bet South Korea gets into Top 10 in FIFA rankings.
