  1. No other option, than to grab third place on their home soil

      I don't care about 3rd place. Probably I won't even watch it.

      Whatever for those freaky chickens...

      chickens: Brazilian players.

  2. To the Brazilian squadron, being in the final week of the World Cup, desperate to lift the trophy on home grounds in the effort to avenge their 1950 defeat against the now-eliminated Uruguay team, let Lynn Minmay soothe you, and guide you to victory with this song:

  3. I saw the newspaper that day, where Anibal Acevedo Vila's (Governor of Puerto Rico from 2005 to 2008) daughter was in London. She was in shock about it. Then-IOC president Jacques Rogge (Belgium) released a statement later on, the day after they were awarded the 2012 Summer games which it was successfully held
  4. Protesters march against Tokyo Olympic stadium By JIM ARMSTRONG http://www.japantoday.com/category/sports/view/protesters-march-against-tokyo-olympic-stadium TOKYO —A group of protesters marched around Tokyo’s National Stadium on Saturday, demonstrating against plans to destroy the 56-year-old facility and replace it with a colossal, futuristic structure for the 2020 Summer Olympics. About 500 protesters took part in the demonstration while carrying signs that read “We want a compact and economical Olympics” and “Reverse the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.” “The proposed stadium is too big,” said Kazuhisa Oriyama, one of the organizers of Saturday’s protest. “The organizers of the games need to reconsider their plans and make the public part of decision-making process.” The proposed 80,000-seat stadium, designed by British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, is to be the 2020 centerpiece but critics say the design is too big, too costly and clashes with Tokyo’s urban planning. Prominent architects and other opponents are petitioning the government to instead upgrade the existing 48,000-seat stadium that hosted the 1964 Olympics. The Japan Sports Council, an arm of the central government that owns the existing stadium, has scheduled demolition to begin this month. The sports council has already scaled back the original proposal to spend 300 billion yen ($3 billion) on the new stadium to a still hefty 169 billion yen ($1.7 billion). The IOC, under new President Thomas Bach, is currently looking at ways of reducing the costs of hosting future Olympics. Several cities declined to bid or have dropped out of the race for the 2022 Winter Games because of financial concerns. “The new stadium design was outsized and an infringement given the focus is an Olympics that pays attention to not overspending,” said Karen Severns, an independent architectural scholar who took part in the demonstration. Apart from cost, critics are unhappy with Hadid’s design, which some claim resembles a bicycle helmet. It will have about four times the floor space of the current stadium and dominate the surrounding area of parks and other sports facilities.
  5. Torino, in their 2006 candidacy. And got awarded the games in 1999 over Sion Korean news coverage The "infamous" salt Lake City 2002 bid, only to be uncovered in September 1998 as a "corporate bait" against IOC members
  6. Lets consider China Or perhaps the Philippines as Southeast asia is yet to put their first tack on the FIFA map
  7. Just like I wanted, Brazil in the semifinals. The most important for their society financially overspent of these two events

      Cobi... Spain... I rest my case.

  8. And where can I find the FIFA world cup bid books to be used as templates? I'm kinda lost
  9. I'm hopeful that the host country could reach the semifinals. Being eliminated in the quarterfinals could mean a catastrophic national disgrace than their 1-2 defeat against Uruguay in the 1950 final

    1. DannyelBrazil

      DannyelBrazil

      Nah, the 1950 was one of the best of their time. Our actual team really sucks. We are already used to the idea we have more chances to be defeated than be champions.

      BUT we should remember Brazil won the last two with "shitty" teams.

  10. First time a coach got red-carded, and Costa Rica took advantage

  11. We could expect a Brazil-Uruguay rematch in the final after nearly 65 years, especially if it's to lift the spirits to put an "Ayrton senna pace" in getting Rio ready for the next summer games

      If I was you, I would check the thread Venue and Infra-Structure in Rio 2016 section. You'd be amaze.

      No more Uruguay, actually.

  12. I am also having the same problem, having diagnosed with the same condition, And referring to jobs there's none that require experience in my region. The real thing is, I am still living with my mother, and i have been issued a court warrant to leave her house this Monday unless I show proof of income. Otherwise, I could face life in prison with no right for parole neither appeal. My saving, transport, and all essential forms of living have been confiscated to her under court warrant. Which means that I have nothing to survive, not even for a single minute. Much worse, I have been also banned from looking sources of income due to "ideological" reasons
  13. Looks like penalty kicks is what could have brazil on the line

  14. There's no snowfall in Australia. Even with wildly hot temperatures all year long nationwide We better bring sheryl nome
  15. Better get working on the bid books, we have to post these links this Tuesday
  16. Favourite WC commentator? Univision's Jorge Perez Navarro, famous for the initial reactions seconds after the ball touches the net
