Getting back to the Qatar World Cup discussion, it is now more or less official that it will not take place in June and July, as FIFA's Secretary-General announced in a radio interview that it will have to be held in the time period between "November 15 and January 15". To me, that means the de facto time window opens around Nov. 12 (a Saturday) and closes around Dec. 18 (a Sunday).
You made it to the final!No triple for Bayern!
They just managed to retire from the German Cup in the semifinal by missing all of their penalties in the penalty shootout against Borussia Dortmund - Lahm and Alonso missed in absolute identical (and funny) fashion, G?tze's shot was warded off by Langerak, Neuer hit the post. The Dortmunders just had to convert two of theirs, missed the third (Hummels - clearly the influence of him having played for Bayern earlier in his career ), never had to take a fourth...
Certainly not the most beautiful win for Borussia, but the most hilarious thing I've seen in football in quite a while.
Now, please Bar?a, kick them out of the Champions League, too.
Similar thing here, the Supporters of every team that gets to the latter rounds singsOh, ah yes.... *chant* BERLIN, BERLIN, WIR FAHREN NACH BERLIN! (traditional German football fan battle cry with regard to the Cup final in Berlin)
The BBC TV guys were suggesting that maybe the Liverpool owners could want him, to get them back into the UCL and STAY there every year. (Like the old days.)One last hurrah for Klopp. Even if Borussia don't win the Cup. :lol:
Corruption at top FIFA level? I feel a Nicolas Cage meme around the corner...So, fifagate...
