    And Mario Gotze made sure that Reus' name wasn't forgotten in the madness that ensued:

    If only Reus had made it,I'm sure we'd have seen less of Ozil,plus they'd obviously be better.

    I'm a typical American of my age group. I didn't know a lot about soccer, but I'v been following the tournament and this thread and right about now I'm feeling quite a hit more knowledgeable than before it started.

    I really enjoyed it and I can't wait till next year's World Cup.

    My World Cup Starting XI

    Suffering from WC withdrawal so I thought this list up off the top of my head (while driving home:grin:). Not too worried about balance (two left footed forwards and main attacking midfielder - although James Rodriguez seems pretty good on his right foot too) or potential match-ups just how they played overall in the matches I saw.

    Goalkeeper

    - Manuel Neuer (Germany)

    Defenders

    - Phillip Lahm (Germany)
    - Ez. Garay (Argentina)
    - Ron Vlaar (Holland)
    - Daley Blind (Holland) - not too sure about this one

    Midfielders

    - Javier Mascherano (Argentina)
    - James Rodriquez (Columbia)
    - Toni Kroos (Germany)
    - Thomas Muller (Germany)

    Forwards

    - Arjen Robben (Holland)
    - Lionel Messi (Argentina)

    One sub from each position: Ochoa (Mexico), Rojos (Argentina), Schweinsteiger (Germany), Juan Cuadrado (Columbia)

    A Worst Starting XI might be more entertaining.:icon_smile:

    Actually, that's an easy one. Take the starting 11 from Cameroon and you're done!

    I like your top 11. I think Giancarlo Gonzales of Costa Rica and Mats Hummels of Germany probably belong in there somewhere on the defensive side.

    By the way, everything you need to see about the German celebrations is here, story with pictures and videos:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/wo...2014-win-Brazil-delighting-crowds-Berlin.html

    One thing for those who may not know, all these displays of patriotism, players and fans draped in and waving their German flags, cheers of "Deutschland! Deutschland!" are actually relatively new. As early as 15-20 years ago, these types of actions were pretty much forbidden, the anthem was not taught in schools, and the country was still living with the guilt and shame of two World Wars. I'm glad to see the Germans once again openly expressing their pride for their nation without any reservation.

    Was in Vegas the day of the final. The place was called "Double Barrel" a bar and food place right on the strip, I had some great brisket sliders. The crowd was surprising mostly white and well behaved. Everyone there was obviously into the game. When Germany won more than half were clapping. I found this surprising due to hordes of illegal aliens from south america that have changed vast demographic areas in Amerika. That moment in Vegas it could have 1960 in America. Anyway, it was a very cool way to spend the 1s of 3 days in Vegas. I was a total loser at the tables tho.

    That's the reason I try to post as many gifs as I can,so that those who aren't familiar with the game can get a feel of it.Also,like Frederic said,keep an eye out for the UEFA Champions League thread for 2014-15.
    That competition is now Football's premier competition,not the world cup.

    Since,I'm suffering from WC withdrawal too,I'll do it.Great best XI,btw.



    The same could be said for Honduras and the Asian teams as well.But I'll create one using players only from the knockouts as much as possible,with players who went even further being preferred.

    The urge to mention Glen Johnson was too much though!
    Suggestions welcome.

    Well, there is no shortage of material for the "lead boot" team.

    For goal keepers I have 2 Whites:Igor Akinfeev - probably the worst, single-handedly eliminated Russia from group stage
    Stipe Pletikosa - pretty bad, didn't save almost anything

    As for the others, we have some of our old black friends:
    Danny Wellbeck - as someone said, probably the most useless English player
    Paul Pogba - the "big talent" was not so talented after all...
    Axel Witsel - Witsel was for Belgium what Wijnaldum was for the Netherlands, a player less in the field
    Mario Balotelli - no comments necessary for this one...

    Great additions.However I disagree regarding the worst goalkeeper of the tournament.Itandje let in four goals against Croatia,of which three were purely down to him:

    I'm afraid Iker Casilas could also be included. He looked a bit like Itandje at times. But at least Casilas had a good run.

    frederic -

    Following his recovery from that ACL injury in the friendly against Italy back in November (I think?) of last year Khedira played a mere two league games for Real Madrid (the final two matches of the season) but nevertheless started in the Champions League final, during which he was substituted early in the second half. So, Carlo Ancelotti selected him for that high-pressure final - which was one of the most important matches in the club's recent history, surrounded as it was by the La Decima hype and the fallout from Real Madrid's failure to win the domestic championship. As You can see, Joachim Low isn't the only manager who shows "faith" in Khedira. That's the point I am making, which I hope should be clear to everyone now. It might be about as palatable as backstreet Balti "cuisine" but is nevertheless 100% true. By the way, 'tis unfortunate that Khedira's name features in Your new "scoreboard" signature...

    Then there's Ozil. Sure, he's easily one of the most overrated players on the planet but - once again - as long as he is a regular first-choice at big clubs which win trophies (Arsenal have just won the FA Cup, their first trophy since 2005) or finish the season in a "Champions League" position (Arsenal finished fourth) he shall probably be named in the German squad and be a possible starter or come on as a substitute regardless of who the manager is.



    Right, where do I start? Well, let's generously set the "unacceptable" threshold of black / non-White / Muslim starters at four, shall we? So, how many of the sixteen teams which emerged from the group stage at least equalled this unenviable number in the first series of knockout matches? Let's count them off: France, Switzerland, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, the United States, Costa Rica, Nigeria, and Algeria. That's eleven out of sixteen. Not that good, eh? Keep in mind that if Luis Suarez hadn't been banned for sinking his donkey teeth into Giorgio Chiellini's shoulder Uruguay would also have made the "four non-White" cut...

    The quarterfinals saw five of the eight teams (France, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, and Costa Rica) start a minimum of four non-Whites. Germany and the Netherlands both started three non-Whites. With all due respect, You are a Frenchman well under the age of thirty who's grown up watching Ligue 1 teams containing next to no Whites so in comparative terms this mightn't seem like a big deal - but it is to me...

    Furthermore, take a moment to ponder some of the "smaller picture", country-specific consequences of what I have discussed above and in my only other post in this thread. Belgium hadn't qualified for the World Cup finals since 2002 and apart from being granted an automatic berth as hosts in 2000 (when they were knocked out in the first round) haven't appeared at the European Championships since 1984. But now - with a squad and starting lineup packed full of non-Whites - they've reached the quarterfinals of the World Cup, which is that nation's second best result in history (Belgium finished fourth in 1986, losing 2-0 to Argentina in the semifinal). So, what does all of this mean? Why, it means that in Belgium Negroes and Arabs shall be associated with "better football" and the philosophy of "multiculturalism" will receive a boost, particularly among all those impressionable young kids. That's a local "White Nationalist" PR negative if ever I saw one...

    How about Switzerland? The "Swiss" team which took to the field against Argentina in the second round contained four Albanians, one Turk, one Negro, and one mestizo. No further explanation is required, methinks...



    foobar75 -

    Haw! Haw! Witty stuff, mate. I hope You didn't exert Yourself overmuch. Hmm, let's see...it looks like one of the cardinal sins I committed was drawing attention to the universally acknowledged (well, by everyone bar the German fans, of course...) reputation for lack of sportsmanship which has traditionally surrounded German football teams. Naturally, I provided a bit of historical evidence to back that assertion up and referred to a couple of incidents from the second round match against Algeria. But wait, we can't have that, for such talk is obviously nothing more than a big, bad anti-German diatribe!

    Yeah, after all, on the evidence I've presented thus far I'm clearly pulling "baseless allegations" straight out of my hateful, inferior, envious Slavic-Anglo-Cletic arse. After all, unlike the "DWFs" and the "MSM" absolutely every poster at Caste Football (with the apparently notable exception of me, that is...) is scrupulously objective and only deals in the un-debased currency of adamantine facts...

    Well, as You evidently weren't too keen on my so-called "diatribe" (I suggest a quick peek at the dictionary definition of the term...) here's a bonus. Just for You, we have Christian Worns' foul on Croatia's Davor Suker in a 1998 World Cup quarterfinal (fast-forward to 1:00 for this "subtle" piece of cynicism):

    [video=youtube;6wHk05XyqV8]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wHk05XyqV8[/video]

    I guess that when it comes down to it I mustn't know much about football - having only followed the game for my entire ****ing life and been an "encyclopaedic" ultra-fanatic until my mid-twenties. But as You are one of those chaps who has regularly contributed to the soccer section and doesn't just emerge from the woodwork every couple of years shortly before the World Cup and European Championship finals to expertly proffer selective, obviously Wikipedia-derived wisdom about the German national team feel free to dismiss as "anti-German" anything I say that You happen not to know about or - more likely - prefer to leave unmentioned...

    Say, did You notice that earlier in my previous post I was harshly critical of England's White players? ****, perhaps that qualifies as an anti-English diatribe? What do You reckon?

    Dear me, since he doesn't always say what everybody wants to hear perhaps Rebajlo really is a Jew after all! Just ask that tireless purveyor of objectivity - werewolf. He'll ****ing verify it even faster than he proved that Michelle Obama is a man...


    Thrashen -

    Certain posters appeared to be squarely blaming Low (plus Boateng, Ozil, and Khedira) for Germany's "lack of success" in the tournaments during which he has been in charge. I pointed out that during his eight year tenure Low had led Germany to the final of the 2008 European Championship, third place in the last World Cup, and the semifinals of Euro 2012 and that on to of those occasions his teams had been eliminated by Spain, who happened to win all three trophies. People seem to avoid acknowledging the facts outlined in the latter half of the previous sentence. At the time of my previous post, Germany was set to face Brazil in the semifinal. Since then, of course, Low has added a World Cup trophy to his hitherto threadbare resume. I guess he wasn't quite as bumblingly ****e as people thought...

    Yes, I may only have watched a few matches in their entirety but I also saw a few "edited replays", one of which was the Germany-Algeria fixture. I'm beyond getting up in the small hours of the morning Australian time to view a pack of uneducated, self-important White multi-millionaire "heroes" who solemnly read anti-racism messages before matches and - if instructed to do so by their paymasters - would immediately publicly denounce a site like Caste Football as the apogee of evil and call for the likes of You, me, and everyone else here to be slung into the pen for "hate speech". The pertinent bit about those "indiscretions" is not that I noticed them but that they occurred...

    As You queried the "Whiteness" of Mats Hummels in the "original" World Cup thread which was eventually locked I can only make the assumption that You have never travelled in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland, for blokes who look like him can be seen throughout these countries. Sure, they certainly don't form anywhere near a substantial proportion of the population but are nevertheless "Teutonic". Put it this way: if the "dark" Hummels isn't White, then neither, for example, is Gerd Muller...or Roger Federer...or Rafael Nadal...or any "Mediterranean"-type European. I'm sure You will agree that the very idea is preposterous...

    This talk of Hummels has brought to mind a little anecdote, which sheds a bit of light upon the atmosphere surrounding "freedom of speech" within the European Union. About a month and a half ago I was speaking with a young Austrian tourist from Niederosterreich (for all of those Germany fans who don't speak German, that's Lower Austria...) whose features were of a similar "dark" cast to those of Hummels. Anyway, after we discuss ski-jumping for a while this Austrian fellow asks me about Poland as he is thinking of taking a holiday there. I gladly offer him a truckload of information and tips before he inevitably mentions the Jews. Well, I promptly told him that he shouldn't view Polish history or that of any other European nation through the tainted, criminally-biased and agenda-stacked lenses of Jewish writers, filmmakers, journalists, "historians", "philosophers", and other bull****-spinners. The Austrian's reaction was nothing short of comical - or would have been if it wasn't such a depressing indicator of the PC fears which permeate modern Europe. This may sound straight out of a low-budget film but let me assure You I'm not exaggerating: in a panic to see if anyone had heard my words he immediately looked over both shoulders, turned back, then stammered sot to voce "oh, you cannot say things like that". All in all, he came perilously close to pissing his ridiculously long denim shorts, or three-quarter jeans or whatever they were supposed to be.

    Philosopher -

    Antonio Candreva's cross was exceptionally well-delivered but Gary Cahill's play vis-a-vis Balotelli's run can euphemistically be described as very poor. If Cahill happened to be a Negro, You and frederic38 would be racing each other to post it in the "Really Bad Black Defenders" thread...

    Six of the Spanish players who were first-choice in the Euro 2008 final (Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Carles Puyol, Andres Iniesta, Xavi, Joan Capdevila) were also first-choice in the 2010 World Cup semifinal. Fernando Torres and David Silva started the 2008 final and were subbed on in the 2010 semifinal. Xabi Alonso came off the bench in 2008 and started in 2010. So, if You care to crunch the numbers You'll discover that nine of the Spaniards who participated in the Euro 2008 final were also involved in the 2010 World Cup semifinal.

    T
    hanks, mate. I know You only made the "sexual feelings" comment in jest - I intended to add a "wink" icon after mentioning it but because my post was so long I obviously forgot.

    Ozil played OK in the final, but overall he was poor in WC 2014. Just ask Paul Breitner! I recall saying here a few years ago that Ozil, a non-white, is a genuinely good player. I don't know what has happened since then. He's 25 so he shouldn't be anywhere near past his prime. Maybe opponents have just figured him out and he can't adjust? I don't know. Sometimes he just looks uninterested.

    As bad as things were early on in this WC by the time they got to the semi-finals three of the four teams were predominantly white with the only non-white team, Brazil, suffering its worst defeat since 1920. So despite serious concerns about newly successful multicultural Belgium and Switzerland I'm reasonably happy with how the WC turned out.

    I find Rebajlo's overly gloomy assessment of this World Cup laughable. If one did not watch this WC and went strictly by his brilliant analysis, the only conclusion to be reached is that 4 African teams made the semis and Ghana were the eventual champions. Oh the horror, it was a negro-fest from start to finish.

    Furthermore, all this German-bashing, complete with cherry-picked "evidence" from the bowels of Rebajlo's "Evil German Archives" is somehow supposed to show us all ignorant Germany fans who come out of our holes every 4 years that these guys are some dirty bastards. I understand now, those white devils of Die Mannschaft are the only players in the history of the sport of soccer who play physical and committ hard fouls. How dare they not realize that it's all about hugs and kisses on the pitch?

    Look at this 2014 World Cup roster, Satan himself would be proud of this group. Yes, this team winning the WC was a complete disaster.

    I'll tell You what's laughable, tough guy: You've just scored more figurative own goals in a single post than ****ing Frank Sinclair managed in his entire career. The fruits of Your startlingly kindergarten-level comprehension skills are so wondrous that one might believe they were harvested from the Garden of the Hesperides. That first paragraph alone is pure gold and should be fashioned into a handy classroom poster illustrating the not-so-fine art of completely missing the point. Now, are You paying attention? Yes? Don't worry, I'll proceed nice and slowly so You don't get (too) confused...

    So, what did my (sarcastically) "brilliant analysis" of a "negro-fest from start to finish" actually entail? Hmm, let's see...

    EXHIBIT A: I initially pointed out that not one of the teams which reached the second round was 100% White. So, were any of the teams which reached the second round 100% White? (tick!... tick!... tick!...) Hang on! **** me, they weren't! Right, then - we've got that straight...

    EXHIBIT B: I voiced displeasure that all-White teams had finished behind black-and-Muslim-laden teams in the UEFA zone qualifiers, thus allowing the latter to represent Europe on the world stage. Yes, that sure was a deliberately pessimistic spin on things, wasn't it...

    What was next in my underhanded campaign of negativity? Yeah, this was a real piece of statistical manipulation, viz.

    EXHIBIT C: I had the gall - the gall, I tell You! - to state that eleven of the sixteen teams which got out of the group stage started at least four non-Whites (those teams being France, Belgium, Switzerland, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, the United States, Costa Rica, Nigeria, and Algeria). To top things off, I made the outrageous claim that if Uruguay's Luis Suarez hadn't been suspended then the number of teams starting at least four non-Whites would have risen by one (in case Your basic mathematical skills are as impressive as Your English comprehension, eleven plus one equals twelve. Are You up to fractions yet? Because twelve out of sixteen makes three quarters, or 75%. Such a tiny percentage...).

    Zounds, we're all the way up to D. That's the fourth letter of the alphabet - D for daft, dunce, dip-stick, and dunderhead. Still paying attention? Good, as it's time for...

    EXHIBIT D: There's just no denying that I'm an anti-White prick because I actually noted that the quarterfinals saw five of the eight teams (France, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, and Costa Rica) start a minimum of four non-Whites. The hide of me! But perhaps I'm blind and the teams I mentioned didn't really field all of those Negroes, Arabs, and mestizos? Come on foobar75, I'm begging You to enlighten me! After all, ignorant half-wits like myself require guidance from experts like You. Oh, yes, I almost forgot: I stated that the Netherlands and Germany both started three non-Whites. Oops, I guess that last sentence provides damning evidence of my virulent "German-bashing"...

    EXHIBIT E: I raised some of the "smaller picture", country-specific implications of the Belgian and Swiss teams being heavily non-White.

    My initial post in this thread was made just prior to the first semifinal (Germany v Brazil) so I was focussing on what had transpired up to the quarterfinals stage - i.e. for the entire ****ing tournament to date. So, looking back at my (hopefully) simple-to-understand five point summary even a slow learner like You will realise that for the majority of the finals way too many non-White players were constantly on show before a worldwide audience - which isn't a positive thing. Individual opinions may vary in the detail, but everyone else here appears to have grasped the overarching meaning of what I was saying and agreed that the earlier stages of the finals were way too "dark".

    Sure, three of the final four teams were overwhelmingly White (if one avoided glancing towards the Dutch bench...) and things eventually turned out well, with an added bonus of Brazil copping a brace of embarrassing beatings to only finish fourth. But - in my eyes - the very fact that the likes of France, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, and Costa Rica ultimately reached the quarterfinals and Nigeria, Algeria, Chile, the United States, Mexico, and the Muslim-packed Switzerland reached the second round provided a definite negative. If You still cannot comprehend that, well...

    Your bleating about my supposed "anti-German diatribes" and "Evil German Archives" et cetera is just plain pitiful and reveals - amongst other unsavoury things - that You know little of football history.

    I'll just take the time to say a few things. In the past, I've referred to the niggling fouls and diving which were often the hallmark of Italian teams plus I've discussed Mussolini's control over the referees who facilitated Italy's brutal "tactics" during their 1934 "win" on home soil - yet the Italian blokes at Caste Football didn't instantly pop up and hurl accusations of "Italian bashing". I've talked about the murky atmosphere surrounding Argentina's "triumph" in 1978 during Jorge Videla's dictatorship and Maradona's cheating against England in 1986 - but nobody accused me of being anti-Argentine. I've harshly criticised the players, managers, federations, and fans of the nations in which I have the proverbial foot: Australia, Poland, England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. I've raised the issue of German teams' traditional reputations for a lack of sportsmanship a few times before, in addition to outlining the dodgy circumstances of West Germany's "win" over Hungary in the 1954 World Cup final - yet You are the only one who has declared that this type of information is "anti-German"... :lightbulb:

    Yes,things are bad and becoming worse for us.Everytime a white team(like Germany this time) wins,the jews are even more determined to further push their anti-white agenda,and they aim to achieve this not by improving blacks or anything of that sort.They aim to do this merely by fulling youth teams with wogs to such an extent that it will be impossible to form a team,club or national,without including 5-6 wogs.



    that's me,right there.Yes,I think Spain being an obstacle is no excuse for Germany to not win anything since Low took over,with the kind of teams/squads they have had since.They've done it now,so sadly Low is here to stay,along with his "Ozil is undroppable policy".


    Yes,very well said.Every white player we defend to death here(Higuain for example),taking great effort,will dip us in hot boiling oil the moment they are commanded to do so.




    I don't think so.If I did that everytime a black lost his man in the box,I'd cross my 10 gb limit my image hoster(Minus) provides in no time at all.I think you're still being uncharitable to Candreva.Sure,Cahill could've done better,no doubt.If anything,the white player who can be blamed is Baines who just jumped timidly and stuck a hanging leg out in his 'attempt' to stop the cross.



    In the end,I'm happy with the outcome too,but this WC doesn't bode well for the future.By 2022,I fully expect Germany to have more than 3 wogs on its roster.Spain is soon going to have its first black since 2008 in Thiago.We all saw how many stadium-illuminating the Dutch bench was.Brazil's team could easily be mistaken for Congo's.France can only get darker,that we already know.Seeing how easily the press,FA and coaching staff of England got a proven-to-be-shi* Welbeck and a thoroughly unproven Sterling to be first-choice this time,I fear England may soon go all France.Belgium might as well represent Arabia/Africa(I'm still in shock with regards to how easily Wilmots got away with playing Origi in place of Mirallas).

    Wow... Philipp Lahm retires from the Germany squad: http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/28364966

    Lahm's going out on top! I thought he still had a couple good years left, but he's had an amazing run with Germany, a great captain and leader.

    Klose still hasn't made a decision on whether he'll retire or not yet.



    I agree. If a non-white team can't win it, then there's going to be a flood of non-whites into the youth systems, so much so that they can't be avoided. You can see what happened with Frances' team. England's team is well on their way there. Germany's U21 team has 3 (I believe) non-whites in it now. The Eastern Euro countries should remain fully white for awhile yet. Italy's U21 team at least is all-white, so besides Ballotelli, hopefully they'll remain all-white.

    I noticed something, in the U19 Euro Championships this month, four of the teams are all-white teams from Eastern Europe!! Bulgaria, Hungary, Serbia, and Ukraine all qualified, while more "modern and diverse" countries like Switzerland, France, and England (who Ukraine beat head to head to qualify. Austria, who only has 1 black, also qualified. The two diverse nations are Portugal and Germany, who each have 4-5 non-whites. A couple of them went for Germany because a few of their better white players were kept by their clubs to train with the main team.

    I think he's achieved all he wanted to in his career,and its a great way to bow out.But if I were him,I'd see 2018 as a challenge.34 then,he'll surely make the 23 man squad.



    Great insight provided.Yes,few teams will remain all or at least mostly white for the foreseeable future.Spain,Argentina can be added to the ones you list.

    Thanks, Philosopher. I agree with you on Spain and Argentina as well; they should remain two of our teams to cheer for.

    I'll categorize some teams into where I think they'll be in 6-8 years:

    Diverse ( 5 non-white starters or more, and more than 6 on roster)

    France, England, Switzerland, Belgium, USA, Netherlands, Uruguay

    Here are the teams we should still be able to cheer for:

    Mostly white (2-3 non-whites or less starting, with less than 5-6 on roster)

    Germany, Argentina, Portugal, Australia, Norway

    Nearly all-white (0-2 non-whites starting, less than 3-4 on roster)

    Italy, Spain, Croatia, Ireland, Sweden, Austria, Finland, Wales, Scotland, Slovakia, Czech Republic (both of these last three teams have a non-white, but they could easily move back to all-white category).

    All white

    Poland, Ukraine, Slovenia, Hungary Romania, Ukraine, Russia, and the rest of Eastern Europe.

    I disagree. This analysis is based on quantity, not quality. The "heavily non-white" teams advanced despite of colored players, not because of them. They advanced because most of them also have some of the best White players who made the difference. France advanced because of Valbuena, Griezman, Lloris, certainly not because of Pogba or Benzema, Belgium because of De Bruyne, Hazard, Vermaelen, Courtois, not because of Origi or Lukaku, The Netherlands because of Robben, Schneider, Blind, Vlaar, not because of Wijnaldum or de Jong, even Columbia's best player was White .... Almost every player who came out on top in this World cup was White (with a couple of exceptions like Costarica's and Mexico's goalkeepers).
    This World cup once more emphasized the superiority of the White player in this game. There is no danger that the colored players will close the gap - the combination of skills needed in this sport is a White set of skills.

    The real danger I see is that with massive immigration in White countries and the massive influx of colored players in the youth systems, more and more countries are going to become like France where football is simply not a viable sport for White kids anymore... i.e. the youth teams are infested with negroes and muslims who hate Whites and White parents simply refuse to send their kids to football which is gradually becoming a "no-Whites-allowed" sport. England is approaching that point it seems, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland are also close.
    In that scenario I expect the football "center of gravity" to move towards Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean, Gemany and Argentina - i.e. countries that will still be able to count on a large pools of White players. It's going to be a different fotballing world.
