@rosicky

don't make a fool of yourself. europe has beaten australia and algeria only, and lost to s korea and ghana. wow!!!


@fey

only holland and spain played against euro teams, and one of them lost. ok

and I can tell you I don't wanna watch slovakia, slovenia, denmark and servia play each other. it would be torture. how the hell did those crappy teams qualify?

colombia would do alright here. maybe Fifa should turn our 5th half spot into a full 5th spot.

Don't speak to soon all the teams beaten by SA are shite. Only Uruguay won by more than one goal despite this. S Korea are pretty good and Ghana are probably the best frica has to offer here as a team. Greece and slovakia maybe a bit poor but the other teams should all get wins against rest of the world teams.

lol! Settle down Todo! This is just beginning. It's a fucking shame that Per, Colombia, Ecuador, and even Bolivia and Venezuela have to watch euro shite play when our teams are so much better than that shite.

NEVER FUCKING THE LESS, that's what we have, them Euro's giving themselves 13 spots to the World Cup when they only have 20 teams. That's some crock of shite FFS!

A quick count shows we have 53 european teams try to qualify for the world cup. Shall we contrast this with South America where half the teams can qualify.

Yes, I picked all five to advance. What's really fucked up is that them euros who run FIFA and give themselves 13 spots when they should only get 8 at most, have put two of our cousins (Mxico and Honduras) in our groups. Them FIFA euro c**ts want us to KO one another. Mxico should've gone with the Dutchies and them Catrachos should've gone with the Teutones.

That way our cousins would've had a good chance to advance by playing against Euro shite! But NO! FUCK NO! FIFA tells us to KO one another. Instead of Honduras whooping some Serbian ass, they've got to suffer against a 60% Chile or instead of Mxico whooping Danish butt, they've got to duke it out with Uruguay. FFS!

Let's see how many South American teams make the QF and how many European teams make the QF before we start making a comparison.

Everyone saw the ease at which Germany brushed aside Australia, with Australia playing at 100% intensity from the start. Imagine if Germany had been playing the Inca warriors with all them corrupt fuckos Shocked We would have witnessed the biggest thrashing of all time.

If less than 4 South American teams make it, there could be an argument for reducing the number of South American teams qualifying.

The European teams that got to this World Cup are not really representative of the best we have tbh.

(real) Asians have been overperforming far more than the South American teams so far anyway!

because it would be too easy for us. Brazil will beat portugal and argentina will lead a massacre against greece.


moreover, we've already won this battle.

4 WCs in South America, around 10 WCs in Europe, many more teams from Europe, and the number of titles are the same.

yeh, let's see the percentage of SA teams that reach the quarters and of Euro teams that reach the quarters, in relation the the ones that started the competition. We only got 5 teams, so we can't work with absolute numbers.

There's a great possibility that all five might make it to the quarters at this rate!

Uruguay are currently favourites to win their group.

Paraguay could also top their group if they beat NZ and Slovakia

And Chile looked thoroughly impressive yesterday and could easily top their group too.

110%

Direct percentages out of the number who started is unfair too though. There's 13 Euro teams so 5 are guaranteed not to make QF whatever happens!

Have to do #SA teams/5 and #euro teams/8 to get the fairest comparison

Getting way ahead. Looking good for all 5 getting to 2R, but for one thing it's likely two will meet if they do all make it. Reasonable chance of Uruguay-Argentina or Chile-Brazil.

mmh does not compute.
we are not discussing wheter Conmebol hosts a couple or three awesome footballing nations, are we? ;-)
the issue is whether the also runs are so good that more than half of its members deserve to take a ride in the cup

hehe

No more flawed than if we use the quarter finals. At least this way teams from the same continent won't directly knock eachother out though i guess teams from other continents could knock them out.

Perhaps we could use some sort of coefficient like UEFA do in the CL? It would also keep Ozil entertained.
