World Cup Qualifier Match Comments Post

Today is an important day for many teams around the world and many of our blaugrana players. I’d like to highlight the more important games and then let you have your say throughout the rest of the afternoon in the comments section.

Ukraine – England: Crucial points for the Ukrainians, who are trying to finish second in the group. (PPV, 12pmEST)
Armenia – Spain: We are all hoping del Bosque gives our boys a rest, but Marca thinks Puyol and Xavi will start and thus probably play 90. (Fox Soccer en Espanol, 12pmEST)
Denmark – Sweden: Zlatan takes one the Danes and their 4-3-3, though he’s in a bullish mood about it and expects victory. (Fox Soccer en Espanol, 2pm EST)
France – Faeroe Islands: This should be a gimme for Titi and Eric, but we’ll see what things Dumbenech can do to make it harder. (Fox Soccer Channel, 3pmEST)
Argentina – Peru: Must win, obviously, but will Maradona realize that and start 11 players or will he handicap himself with Heinze? (PPV, 5:30pmEST)
Mexico – El Salvador: Rafa returns to El Tri, but can they qualify? (6pmEST, Telemundo)

Mali and Brasil play tomorrow.

In earlier action, the Ivory Coast drew with Malawi 1-1. The Yaya played only the final 12 minutes, which was obviously the problem for them. Still they’ll move on in the qualification process quite handily.

    Hmm Mexico game or Argentina game…hmmmmmm…..hmmm…both! πŸ˜€ I hope my internet tubes can handle it

      October 10, 2009

      i’d much rather watch argentina on the boob tube & stream the mexico game, but what can you do? do i stream the portugal game & watch them crash & burn or watch a france v faroe islands rebroadcast? decisions. decisions.

      i hope iniesta plays no more than a half so that he gets his positioning down but doesn’t re-aggravate the bee’s knees. i think xavi’s payed his dues.

    33rd min goal fabregas. xavi w/the assist.

        October 10, 2009

        they were lucky not to have been caught on the counter right before that.

          • Eduard
            October 10, 2009

            that’s one of the best goals I’ve seen in a while. Who says Xavi and Cesc aren’t compatible?

    marchena is off so we have the pique puyi pairing (the PPP?) in defense now

  4. October 10, 2009

    I made a mistake a mistake in my post: ivory coast qualified for the WC according to ESPN

    stupid armenia

    here’s another crackovia skit…

    iniesta’s outfit. oh my.

    Puyol with some well timed tackles. He has had to make more tackles in this game than with barcelona all season soo far

  7. bill
    October 10, 2009

    england looks good with ten men on the field. Their passes, movement and general understanding of the game plan is crisp.

        • Miguel
          October 10, 2009

          i thought it was zoolander who scored.

          what happened to the iron man?

          • Corrine
            October 10, 2009

            i was switching streams as the goal happened but here’s what marca said:

            ‘‘GOOOOOL DE ARMENIA!! Falta botada sobre el Ñrea española y toca Puyol de cabeza para marcar en propia meta, aunque la FIFA le da el gol a Arzumanyan. Empata y sorprende Armenia.

          • Khairallah
            October 10, 2009

            huh, damn Marca for their Barca hating crap, coz they have keener eyesight than FIFA..

    • Miguel
      October 10, 2009

      i just watched the highlights. puyi gets all the credit for that one.

  8. Hector
    October 10, 2009

    I am usually not one for conspiracy theories but Xavi, Iniesta, Puyol, and Pique getting minutes vs Albiol, Alonso, Casillas, or Silva (who we play next) in a meaningless game is shady as hell. GOD DAMNIT del Bosque you are QUALIFIED. Why not put in the bench warmers (i.e. RM players?) CONSPIRACY…

    πŸ˜€

  9. bill
    October 10, 2009

    Hector, im with you 100%. I was wondering why Xavi is in this game. He played all games in south africa, plus all important games for barcelona this season (pique & Puyol too). The spanish team is already qualified, plus they have some benchwarmers who should be used in games like this. Iniesta is also coming off a long injury lay-off, has been suffering from frequent injuries lately and should only be used when necessary.

    It was cool to see Xavi and Iniesta switch numbers, is that a brotherhood thing?

  10. Hilal
    October 10, 2009

    Wow, is anybody watching Ibra for Sweden? He is playing really well. He just set up Larson with a backheel for a beautiful goal that was suspiciously deemed offside. Could have gone either way, shame cos it would have been a lovely goal.

  11. Khairallah
    October 10, 2009

    Puyol will be ending his international “break” early, he came through with his promise :P, he got a yellow..

  12. jordi
    October 10, 2009

    Damn denmark scored, i want zlatan ant the world cup and not thongboy!

  13. Miguel
    October 10, 2009

    god damn denmark. pfff the dutch.

    i guess i will be watching the portugal game as france is already up 2-0 through a gignac brace.

  14. Ramzi

    Isaiah, he is the sexiest smartest sweetest charmer ever known. The first , the second and the thrid. And you are still wondering?

    abidal gets injured in the last minute of a 5-0 rowt?

    • Kzevin
      October 10, 2009

      And in a match in which the bench should have been emptied. I hate Dumbenech SO MUCH!

      • eklavya
        October 10, 2009

        Wow I thought for once someone will be happy with a 5-0 win.
        Apparently not.

        • October 10, 2009

          No, because the 5-0 should have been possible with the B squad. Anyone can play well against minnows. It’s when you get the must-win matches that you see what a side is made of. Qualification was on their boots against Serbia. Just win and the rest is in their hands. But against real sides is when the team’s (or lack thereof) deficiencies show up.

          Benzema looks a god against Faroe Islands. He was shit against every other real side in that group. Now it’s the playoffs, barring some crazy results from the Serbian side.

          Put it like this: If Barca lost the Clasico, then Sevilla, then Villarreal, but beat Tenerife 9-0, we’d be happy, yes, but that happiness would be tempered.

          See what I mean?

  16. Kzevin
    October 10, 2009

    Shit. If Sweden wins that match, both they and the Danes are sitting on 18 points. And Portugal is screwed. Alas, it didn’t happen that way.

    Les Bleus look like shit. It’s the goddamned Faroe Islands. They should be up by about 47 goals, and they shouldn’t need Henry to do it. Luckily in the playoffs they will draw a weaker country, but Dumbenech could mess up a wet dream.

    Ibra looked good, but when you surround a diamond with shit, you can’t really expect much.

  17. Kzevin
    October 10, 2009

    I just realized that Dumbenech is wearing what looks like a leather suit. Holy crap. The Faroe player should have cock punched him.

    • Miguel
      October 10, 2009

      dude that leather suit was hard. whether or not domenech was able to pull it off is a different issue.

  18. Ramzi
    October 10, 2009

    Kevin, Kxevin, Kzevin….You will face financial crises if you will have to pay for brand names copy rights anytime soon.

    Sweden have their own version of Dumbradona as well.

  19. Ramzi
    October 10, 2009

    and yeap, recently I struggle to joke more and more everytime an Argentina match approach. That may require a psycological analysis….

  20. Kxevin
    October 10, 2009

    Hey, don’t blame me. Blame my ineptitude with my phone’s soft keyboard. πŸ˜€

    That Abidal thing was scary. He was planted, when the keeper cleated his own player’s leg, after trying to catch a clearance that he should have just punched.

    And Lassana Diarra and Gallas are classless gits. The latter picks up a yellow for an unnecessarily rough challenge, and laughs about it. He should have been apologizing to the Faroese player.

    Then late in the match, Gallas is squabbling about some ticky tack play. Even Sagna was saying “Dude, we’re up 5-0.Chill.”

    Les Bleus are a collection of talent in search of a coach to make it a team. The difference in the last Cup is that Zidane was an on-pitch coach. Now that he’s gone, we are really seeing how off things are.

  21. jnelson
    October 10, 2009

    Oh shit Portugal won. Looks like the WC will have Crynaldo but not Ibra!?!?! Lets hope our little Argy Bargy’s moron coach doesn’t blow their chances among other things.

    • Kxevin
      October 10, 2009

      Was that the last match of that group? I thought there wa one more round.

      • Ramzi
        October 10, 2009

        Portugal play against Malta at home.

  22. Kxevin
    October 10, 2009

    And now that Crynaldo is the new spokesmodel for Armani bloomers, he really is Thong Boy.

  23. Miguel
    October 10, 2009

    anybody have links to the argentina game???
    i’m not seeing anything on myp2p & rojadirecta’s links are bunk. i’m not even gonna bother w/justintv.

  24. Ramzi
    October 10, 2009

    Ronaldo get injured early during a vital game for his country, Simao end up leading the team to the win scoring two goals = Simao had a good game.

    I cant help imagining the marca headlines if it would have been the other way, switching simao name with ronaldo in my first paragragh.

    Alright…hust 12 more minutes and the “fun” starts.

  25. yogi
    October 10, 2009

    myp2p has the links and most of them work methinks.

    Just saw argentine line up and its awful in defence. i simply do not understand maradona. its peru but still it awful decision making. fingers crossed.

  26. Miguel
    October 10, 2009

    killer bees on the swarm in the mexico v el salvador game. literally.

  27. OhYes
    October 10, 2009

    Yeah, bees..how ridiculous!! We used to play next to bee nests when i was younger. What a bunch of nancys..

  28. Miguel
    October 10, 2009

    both argentina & mexico w/near misses. i’m gonna go cross eyed.

  29. yogi
    October 10, 2009

    awful feeling and cannot understand how argentina is not in front yet…

  30. Miguel
    October 10, 2009

    golazooooo mexico!!! and by golazo i mean an own goal.

  31. lovelymofo
    October 10, 2009

    Argh, I have mentioned I support Mexico but hate Cuauhtemoc right? Can’t believe he was the one sort of caused that goal. Buu.

    • lovelymofo
      October 10, 2009

      I meant ‘the one who sort of caused that goal.’

      • Miguel
        October 10, 2009

        word. how cuauh gets picked ahead of arce is beyond me.

  32. jnelson
    October 10, 2009

    Did anybody notice Schiavi left as the only defender back for about 10 seconds? Save of the day: Peru GK batting away Higuain’s effort with the back of his feet. Take that Casillas!

      • October 10, 2009

        Yeah, what’s with that DEMO business? Still, good link, good quality. Thanks so much. I get to tune in at halftime. Yay!

          • Boat Forever
            October 10, 2009

            Irag actually better quality except for that annoying DEMO business like the ‘MARADONNA’ for Argentina

  33. October 10, 2009

    But I see that it’s still 0-0. Highlights. How the hell does Higuain miss that one?

    How’s Messi been?

    • Miguel
      October 10, 2009

      he’s played well. argentina’s been unlucky infront of goal. i think it’ll come though.

  34. Miguel
    October 10, 2009

    arsenal’s vela missed a chilena for mexico

    • lovelymofo
      October 10, 2009

      The only highlight of the match for me. Was JDS called up for this match too? If Mexico scores a goal, I’d like to see him get some minutes.

      • Miguel
        October 10, 2009

        i don’t think so…

        //http://www.goal.com/en/news/12/spain/2009/10/02/1536336/barcelonas-rafael-marquez-back-in-mexico-squad

    • OhYes

      Yeah that goal would have been bad ass..what a shame! nice save, though

  35. Kari
    October 10, 2009

    ARGENTINA WILL SCORE. ARGENTINA WILL SCORE. ARGENTINA WILL SCORE.

    Maybe if you say it enought, it will become reality.

    …and PLEASE don’t tell me Palermo is coming on for Higuain….

    • Miguel
      October 10, 2009

      on for perez. vargas rattles the post.

    • Kari
      October 10, 2009

      Well, dang. Maybe I just jinxed them… Peru starts very brightly. Vargas hits the crossbar

    • Miguel
      October 10, 2009

      all the commentators thought he was

  36. Miguel
    October 10, 2009

    higuain!!!! now just don’t concede

  37. October 10, 2009

    Keeper was screwed, too. Play the near side and hope for the best was his only option.

  38. jordi
    October 10, 2009

    Higuain scored.Yes Maradona, god players actually make a difference *gasp*

  39. jnelson
    October 10, 2009

    Diego Maradonna: the only action of the entire match is jumping a half inch in the air, celebrating a goal scored by two of the players he has snubbed since he’s been in charge.

  40. Ramzi
    October 10, 2009

    Palermo can create the spaces they lacked in the first half. Just dont let him take penalties.

  41. Boat Forever
    October 10, 2009

    Is *http://tvoo.net/ fooling around just with me!? Can any body provide a better link please

  42. lovelymofo
    October 10, 2009

    Wait, who scored for Argentina. I missed it. :/

  43. October 10, 2009

    Now, we all know that this side canNOT win the WC with Maradona as coach, right?

    Right?

    • lovelymofo
      October 10, 2009

      YES. I don’t get how he’s still coaching Argentina.

    • jnelson
      October 10, 2009

      Whoa, wait a minute…I thought Guti playing for Barca was more likely???

  44. October 10, 2009

    Holy crap! How did that one NOT score? No wonder Peru is bottom.

  45. October 10, 2009

    And that was a hand ball, but the ref isn’t going to make that call in that stadium, in a 1-0 match.

  46. lovelymofo
    October 10, 2009

    /http://www.atdhe.net/9792/watch-argentina-vs-peru

    The Demo feed, but no pauses.

  47. Miguel
    October 10, 2009

    guardado dings the post. keeper got a hand on it.

  48. Kari
    October 10, 2009

    Is it just me or is “Spiderman” Gutirrez playing in defense (as in he’s like a right back)? Are Argentina playing 3 at the back?

  49. Kari
    October 10, 2009

    OMG 1 million+1 year old Schiavi saves Argentina!

  50. Kari
    October 10, 2009

    Bwahaha, and defender for striker..

  51. lovelymofo
    October 10, 2009

    Old man Cuauhtemoc needs to come out. He can’t even run. And, Higuain off? Why?

    • Kari
      October 10, 2009

      He’s going for a 1-0 win, but as we all know with Maradona. What he thinks fails. So, 100000000 year old Palermo up front and 22 year old (and goalscorer) Higuain on the bench.

      Now, it is a battle of who is more inept. Peru, in front of goal, or Maradona, as a coach.

      Who will win?

  52. Miguel
    October 10, 2009

    higuain off? are you sure maradonna?

  53. October 10, 2009

    Had that cross not been so tight and uncertain, it’s a draw right now. Peru has had three excellent chances this half.

    • Miguel
      October 10, 2009

      best way to nip that in the bud is to score again not put in another defender & sit back & take it.

  54. Ramzi
    October 10, 2009

    whats argentina tactics at the moment?
    They put palermo, stopped pressing and stopped playing on the flanks.

    • October 10, 2009

      Ain’t no tactics, Ramzi. Dumbenech and Maradumber have the same “coaching” style. “Go get ’em, fellas!”

      • lovelymofo
        October 10, 2009

        Sounds like my elementary school recess futbol career. Can I coach? πŸ˜€

        • Boat Forever
          October 10, 2009

          Luis Suarez benefitting messi even before coming to barca, imagine him scoring for us and providing all those assists πŸ˜›

  55. lovelymofo
    October 10, 2009

    While I want Messi to play in the WC, I really don’t want Maradona as coach. So, I kind of (guiltily) want Peru to tie the game.

  56. October 10, 2009

    Tally so far:

    Ibrahimovic: Out
    Henry, Abidal: Probably in through playoff
    Messi: ????
    Xavi, Puyol, Pique, Busquets, etc: In
    Alves: In

    • UAI
      October 11, 2009

      IT will take a while to determine what Bojan’s status is on that list…

  57. Ramzi
    October 10, 2009

    it will be boring if everytime peru add a forward, argentina add a defender

  58. Kari
    October 10, 2009

    Bottom of the table Peru dominating possession on Argentina’s backyard. Gosh, they’re defending like a team playing us at the Camp Nou..

    • Kari
      October 10, 2009

      Argentina defending like that, I mean

  59. Miguel
    October 10, 2009

    what a save by the el salvador keeper!

  60. Kari
    October 10, 2009

    Higuain AND now Aimar off. The ones who changed Argentina’s fortunes?

    Peru is going to equalise. I just called it. (Hoping I’m wrong, but I just get this feeling..)

  61. October 10, 2009

    Peru had the chance to re-set the attack, but in playing it back to the keeper, showed that they don’t really want to win or draw. They just want to show well.

    • Kari
      October 10, 2009

      That may be true, but what I think is that it won’t be so much as Peru brilliance, but Argentina self-destruction. The pressure is all on Argentina’s side of the field (and on the players).

      …And with these condition (adding to the drama of the game), you never know.

  62. Miguel
    October 10, 2009

    cuauhtemoc shutting up all the haters(including me).

  63. lovelymofo
    October 10, 2009

    I gotta stop saying that I’ll gouge an eye out if Cuauhtemoc scores. Every time I say that, the jerkface scores. I would be blind like 6 times over.

    • October 10, 2009

      πŸ˜€ He’s one of the best reason to go to Chicago Fire matches.

  64. Corrine
    October 10, 2009

    luis suarez scored! 1-1 so far with ecuador v uraguay

    • Kari
      October 10, 2009

      If it stays that way, it’ll be good for Argentina (4th and 6th tying)

  65. Ramzi
    October 10, 2009

    Can maradona Undo all his substitution if peru scored?

  66. ooga aga
    October 10, 2009

    argentina – peru:

    is the field wet or do both teams just suck shit?

  67. October 10, 2009

    Was going to say if he calls that BS for Argentina while ignoring the hand ball….

    Looks like Argentina will escape this one.

  68. Ramzi
    October 10, 2009

    I wish maradona play for the team again.

    Even at this age he still can serve the team better as a player than as a coach.

  69. Miguel
    October 10, 2009

    you’re fucking kidding me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  70. October 10, 2009

    Holy shit! Crazy. Just crazy! “Diego Maradona and Argentina stare at the abyss.” Nice commentary.

    Serves him right for being negative.Ass

  72. Miguel
    October 10, 2009

    i’m gonna go watch my dodger blue now.

    old ass palencia just scored for mexico.

  73. lovelymofo
    October 10, 2009

    See, I knew it! I feel bad for hoping for this scoreline. But seriously, can we have Maradona’s head now?

    Also, backwards day in Mexico, Paco Palencia just scored.

  74. Miguel
    October 10, 2009

    hahahahahahah…old ass martin palermo!!!!!!!!

  75. lovelymofo
    October 10, 2009

    Haha, nevermind. Maradona is still a loser.

  76. jnelson
    October 10, 2009

    What happened? I can’t see shit on my feed now.

  77. October 10, 2009

    Unmarked at the back post. Losing sides ball watch, don’t they?

  78. jnelson
    October 10, 2009

    PALERMO!? ARE YOU F’N KIDDING ME!!!!!??? HOLY CRAP

  79. lovelymofo
    October 10, 2009

    Dang, Peru just nearly equalized.

  80. Miguel
    October 10, 2009

    divine intervention did it for maradona. gonna keep stringing him along :v(

  81. October 10, 2009

    And why wasn’t that a pull down in the box? Nice time to whistle for full time.

  82. jnelson
    October 10, 2009

    Did anybody stick around to see that last kick from Peru from midfield. What a crazy match…people will probably remember it for years if ARG goes to the WC

    • October 10, 2009

      I did. Pretty crazy attempt that almost made it. The keeper was there, though.

  83. lovelymofo
    October 10, 2009

    Can I just say tho, that Maradona is still a total f-ing embarrassment? And the team is reflecting that.

  84. October 10, 2009

    Wow. If Argentina needed 93 minutes and a miracle finish to get past Peru — at home, no less — will it even matter if they get to the World Cup? They’re going far regardless.

  85. Ramzi
    October 10, 2009

    Who made the Palermo substitution?! Who? Who?!

    Maradona is the best coach in the world!

    Ehm..alright…its my bed time…enjoy your day across the ocean

  86. lovelymofo
    October 10, 2009

    Yay, Vela scored! Pretty good goal too. Crazy day for futbol man.

  87. OhYes
    October 10, 2009

    ANYONE but fucking Palermo..fucking hell man..now he’s gonna think he was perfectly right. fucking hell

    Anyway, watching the MEX game was pretty fun..gotta say, Blanco had his bad days, his good days, and these have been his best days thus far IMO. Guy’s pretty damn old, shouldn’t be playing as he already retired, but even so he is doing great. Sacrificing a lot.

    Palencia the other old timer, did a few good things, too. Knew he couldn’t outrun his defender, so he goes for the crazy as hell cross-field pass to Vela who managed to muck up his chance. Damn nice..goal was great, too.

    Very happy with these two.

    Also, Vela scored a goal! He was due this game.

    FINALLY, Mexico is IN THE WORLD CUP WEEEEEEEE KEKEKEKEKEKEKE πŸ˜€

      Yes, yay for Mexico! [I still don’t like Cuauhtemoc tho. He just *bothers* me.]

      Whats the consensus, will we see JDS in the WC?

        i hope so. but who would he come on for? cuauhtemoc? not likely anymore.

        so vela scored @ the end? waiting for the highlights.

        Ehhh Blanco has a little something to him that I dislike, too. Probably coming from his days at America, and I am a Chivista.. However, I can’t say I hate the guy or that I dislike him simply because of his work in the Mexican NT.

        JDS may be present at the WC…but I am not holding my breath. It would depend entirely on how he performs for Barcelona and he has an entire season to make some noise so who knows. It could go either way.

      Now Uruguay v Argentina is a REAL derby. Like heads will roll, things will be destroyed. Pitch invasions if Uruguay loses, and Maradona will roll back the years and kick some arse Early ’80s Barca-style *http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEeMSBy8EW0 if Argentina loses.

      Either way, DEFINATELY not a game to miss.

      But what if it ends in a tie…:D

        HAHA that fight was so funny. Everybody was fighting with their legs? What happened to fists? Funny, especially Maradona lunging into a kick at everyone.

    well argentina won and that makes me happy. but maradona is shitawful coach. why does he not resign? he was my idol as player but now he is amongst the worst coaches ever.

    i can (and will) bet that uruguay beats argentina on wednesday. there is no way this team with maradona can even draw that one. then they will depend on their own (chili coach bielsa) to not let equador win so that they can squeeze in for play offs. this has irony as bielsa was the one argentina fired at beginning of compaign and now he has chili playing best football in continent.

    One thing is for sure though. maradona cannot coach or pick players to save his life. he has not even put zanetti, samuel, gonzalo, forlin on subs bench and plays with three makeshift players. goddamn awful.

    Uruguay V Argentina? Ohhhhhh now that’s a game right there.

    Sorry Messi, and Masche, and others, I love you dearly..but damn do I hate Maradona. I sure as hell hope Arg. and Equ. lose… :0

      I’ve been hoping for Argentina to still change course until yesterday. But after the match yesterday which was – except of some parts of the first half – absolutely terribly and hurt my eyes, I really don’t want Argentina to qualify anymore. If they qualify, they will go to the WC with Maradona and with a similar line-up like yesterday or the match-days before. They’ll get ripped apart by any opponent of the Top 50 FIFA World Ranking.
      Why the hell is Maradona soooo stupid and blind, why does he not retire voluntarily after the next match? He’s so pathetic and at latest yesterday, he succeeded in making me an anti-Argentina-attituded guy (actually it’s anti-Maradona, but I fear the only way to get rid of him is to lose against Urugay combined with a win of Ecuador, because then Argentina is out and Maradona will lose immunity, right?).
      The 2nd half yesterday was so miserable, I even decided to watch Ecuador vs Uruguay for the most part.

    looks like Maradumber failed to pray enough to beat both Pery AND Uruguay. Looking forward to watching Luis Suarez though! F Robinho

    Captain fantastic & The Maestro returned back home… Only the latter aggrevated his injury today. Hope he recovers by the time we play Valencia. Or else Iniesta should be able to deal with it hopefully since Valencia are defensively out of form lately; in case not then we are doomed, not just regarding the current run but on a longer road πŸ™

    if argies lose to uraguay wednesday and ecuador beat chile, then argentina fall to 6th where playoffs are not an option!

    maybe it’s just a ploy so that xaviiniestapuyol can go home “injured” to barca , take the next game off, and it wont be offensive to the team we are playing on wednesday
