Discussion in 'Croatia' started by Cobranaconda, Jun 2, 2008.
Aw come on! How about we bet on a huge ice-cream?
I'm pretty sure that our representation won't win the championship. It would be great, but the odds don't look good. Everyoen on TV is saying tha we got a difficult group. Except on RAI. Italians claim that they have the hardest one. But they always complain and play lazy in the begining and get through with luck not effort and somehow manage to win a good positio or the first place.
The Italians do have the hardest group. Croatia have it easy, and they're pretty much acknowledhed as the dark horses to win
Well then. I'll buy you a huge pack of ice-cream if Croatia doesn't win the championship (not necesarrily if Germany are the winner, anyone, except us).
Fine. I'll take that bet.
Croatia is dark horse?
(not the comic book publisher...)
Dark Horse is a turn of phrase. Teams or people with an unlikely chance of winning, but able to do it if they endure. Like Greece in Euro 2004
Yeah that was unexpected.
Ana, we have a good team this time. Bilic is awesome...
...I'm so going to be burried in ice-cream after this is all over...
Just don't take the championship too seriusly. I wouldn't want to see you get dissappoined.
No, I won't. Whatever the outcome. At least I didn't give up all of my savings to go to Austria to see the game. That would really suck. Imagine if you spent a huge amount of money to actually see the game live and then your team loses. Ouch!
Damn, Poland is in the same group. I could support both, but that would mean that Germany is the dark horse
Croatia scored within 4 minutes, then played badly the rest of the half. Silly
The game wasn't as bad as the judge was being unfair! (in the second half)
There was no contact and and he said it was a foul. Austrians threw the ball away from the field (don't know the exact term on english), and judge gives the bll to them, not to us.
But it's great that we won.
One down, two more to go!
The game was boring becouse there were no goals at all, except the beginning that I missed. But it was fun watching Igor and others pulling their hair in despair becouse the judge was being and idiot.
Tbh, I didn't expect that. Every time people have great expectations from our team (in every sport actually), we tend to suck. And since everyone is behaving so crazy these days because of the championship and we apparently played badly against Austria, I didn't expect our team to be any good.
So now Poland has to crash Austria, and then Austria needs to crash Germany, and then Croatia has to be nice to Poland and let us get some points and then there MAY be a slight chance we get the perfect outcome.
Germany too strong for us? There you go, Ana!
Amon, those days ar e over. Bilic will lead us to victory. Hopefully.
U boj, u boj!
Raja, 1:1 Poland vs Austria. Although I liked the Austrian team. They played lousy, however and I got disappointed. So I'll support Poland.
Unfortunately, its unlikely that Austria can beat Germany.
I can't believe we're going quarter final! Woohooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!
Deutschland Auf Wiedersehen, Auf Wiedersehen, Auf Wiedersehen!
I watched the game with German tourists at my grandmother's (she lives in Primorje) and they thaught us how to say it. It was really strange, being the only Croatian in that room watching the game. But they were really nice. I felt sorry for them, so my grandma and I went to buy them lubenica later on, so they would 'feel better'. (How to say lubenica on english?)
I've heard some people singing it, but I don't think it's very nice. Then again I really like German team and I definitely don't want to say Auf Wiedersehen to them; I want to see them play again on Euro08.
I actually like all the teams from our group and want to see them all play later on, lol.
edit: sorry, messing around with the highlighting
Quarter finnal - battle against Turkey! It's hilarious! A game of historical
importance! And in Vienna!
Historical indeed, lol. Like in 1529.
Plus Turkey won't have their best keeper/rearguard available.
