Tell me about it! It might have been a wages issue as well, not sure.

Azerbaijan has an impressive, though somewhat depressing national anthem. I'm hoping for an attractive game.

I'm ready to be completely ridiculous again. It can't kill me after all.

Well, already Russians, Turks, Portuguese and Bulgarians are going to feel pretty ridiculous.

Montenegro look as if they're a pretty good team, gulp. We just have to have the good 'crap' team in our group didn't we?

And England scores while I'm typing this. ROONEY!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Well, you'll be happy, Jax. After doing some rather good work, Walcott's injured, and Adam Johnson's run on. I'm only reading this from the commentary box, btw, and I guess I'd better shut up now.

A last word from me, Czechs down to Lithuania, to join the giant-killers tonight. May not stay that way.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

You people fromt the big football nations have no idea what it's like to live in a country that's really shit at this game. It's funny when France loses against Belarus, but it's just business as usual for Austria. The Austrian national football team hasn't played a game without conceding a goal since three managers ago. I'm not complaining though, it's always entertaining, like a circus clown.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Is that an official record?

Well, 45 minutes to go against Kazakhstan and you might have beaten that.

And an Andorran goal! Guess I won't be saying that too often.

Well, I'm content. 3-0 at half time. But game analysis without Netzer just isn't the same.

It probably is for Austria I guess, the last :0 victory was 5 years ago, but I'm sure countries like Luxemburg or Liechtenstein have had longer streaks.

Liechtenstein played 0:0 vs Azerbaijan in 2008 (won 4:0 vs Luxembourg in 2004).

Luxembourg 0:0 vs Faroer in 2010 (also 0:0 vs Moldova in 2009 and 1:0 vs Belarus in 2007).

Edit: Last 0:0 draw for Austria was in 2007 vs Japan.

0-0 in Bosnia for the moment. It's disappointing and boring. If they're not playing very well, at least they should be completely ridiculous, it's more entertaining.

Hm, there have to be some teams that are worse than Austria. Austria is more a very lukewarm kind of shit.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

San Marino's last :0 was a 1:0 victory vs Liechtenstein in 2004.

Austria is ranked 32nd out of 56 on European football elo ratings. So there are quite a few.

(Obviously. )
