I kinda wanted New Zealand to qualify for the World Cup – oh well, fuck it.

So you really ARE an asshole? (Instead of only naming yourself one.)

Wanting New Zealand in the World Cup makes me an Asshole? – porque? Tell me Hon’ what’s bugging you lately? Is it Tabarez? How can I make it better? Would you like a cup of hot cocoa?

What about those cute little Peruvians, playing rather well, don’t they deserve a WC?

As for Tabarez, probably only a military coup can make him retire, but I’m afraid the Uru army is too peaceful for that at the moment.

I’m glad to see you know how to please a woman: for us chocolate is the next most important thing in the world. Thx for the invitation!

But hey, we might see the New Zealanders on the Alternative World Cup in the USA, together with Italy, Cameroon, Chili, Ghana, Ivory, China, Wales, Czechia, Honduras, Holland and four other pitiful cases. Welcome at the second-rate club!

US Soccer is a mess. These fake tournaments MLS/SUM likes to organize like the Copa Centenario or this Alternative WC you speak of, are done to push MLS into the spotlight but nobody really cares around here. There’s no promotion/relegation in the United States and until that gets incorporated into the US soccer pyramid, no one will ever take it seriously here.

I did not know there was a rule that WE HAVE TO ADOPT Peru all of a sudden? This being a Blog which is concerned with Uruguay’s NT, our focus is on Uruguay. And personally I could care less about Peru – Wish them all the best, if Uruguay hadn’t qualified I don’t know which team I would back, but it wouldn’t be Peru. I got too many bad memories of Peru, 1982, 2007 & 2009.

Hot cocoa is wonderful this time of year. 😉

Consider yourself fortunate that the Blog is so much more than “only” concerning with Uruguay’s NT. That no one wants to read it, well, they don’t know what they’re missing.

I think Peru in this cycle rightly deserved its place in the sun. But of course you can have issues with them that don’t matter to me dating back to ’82 (other people even talk about 1936). To call that assholic goes too far. I will drink more hot cocoa, will maybe sharpen my mind.

Maybe they surprise everyone and win it all. Wasn’t around for ’36 – but I did watch that ’82 game, I was young whipper snapper back then, so I remember a couple of events from television very vividly, John Lennon’s assassination, Reagan getting shot, the Challenger explosion and Peru eliminating Uruguay – I also remember I used to wake up every Saturday to watch the Smurfs and The Super-Friends which back then were bigger priorities for me.

I think I’m going through Repechaje Withdrawals … Especially watching the Honduras/Australia match…

Im not too sure everyone here enjoys the podcast as much as we do. Anyway it is always cool to attract the spanish speakers.

Personally I don’t care if anybody else is listening to it – I know I love listening to it, in fact, it’s the only Podcast I listen to. Heard it 5x since we posted it.

I think You & Jules should do one without me. Maybe rotate my seat to one of the Blog readers (FourThreeThree or Plaga9Celeste) –– and the Podcast should always BE IN SPANISH … ALWAYS!

Enjoy yer day Goldstein.

It used to be “midfield” so see the brighter side of life 🙂 we point out, owt solves it a decade later. What else can we contribute for?

Yorugua

We can contribute to the greater social good, by fighting poverty, helping our fellow man down on his luck, taking care of the environment so that future generations can enjoy this thing we call life or…. upload a shitty comment on this Blog which nobody reads! Yeah… lets go with Option B.

Hmmmm – 2nd topic? not much of a topic….(but don’t worry I’ll humor you)….. BTW is this the last Podcast for the year, or are we doing our annual LCB Awards in December? – a lot of these topics get repeated on every Podcast, if these are the topics for this Podcast, I don’t wanna talk about this in on the LCB Awards – You’ve been warned Nicolas Goldstein.

Why does Tabarez suddenly call up more youth than he did before? Is he concerned about his legacy? Is it a sign he plans to step aside after the WC? With the new rejuvenated midfield, will Tabarez also try another playing style? Can he/will he take leave from his selfcreated myth Uru can only play de repuesta? Or is that a bridge too far? Is it sheer coincidence Ale Silva is playing the COL finals for the second time, although not playing for the biggest clubs? What are the chances of Lanus vs Gremio? Is over-reliance on Suarez not more… Read more »

tata suffers ankle sprain.. should be out for the pol/aus trip, which wouldn’t be much of a difference.. technically, he was already taking 22 players.. now there will be physically only 22 players.. calling Sampdoria.. just kidding..
