Anonymous asked: Oh I love me a good discussion! I'll give you that Holland was beginning to fizzle but Mexico barely made it to the World Cup! IDK how many games you've watched but the officiating has been horrible throughout! And you never answered why Mexico stopped attacking during the game? Robben's dive wasn't the reason Mexico lost, they lost because they stopped playing, they hung back waiting for the whistle. And the only player that doesn't dive is Messi. Otherwise they're all tipping over, c'mon.
LMAO why are you even trying. if Holland started out great and fizzled out, Mexico’s trajectory followed the opposite and went from awful to great. they’re weren’t beginning to fizzle, they had already fizzled by the quarterfinals, period. meanwhile Mexico turned into a completely different team with hard work and determination. you don’t think I suffered leading up to the New Zealand games? casi me dio un infarto, fuck.
I will admit that Gio should’ve stayed on the pitch longer but at the same time switching the focus to defense probably made sense, especially for a team whose defense had shown to be stellar in other situations. unfortunately their weak point was corners and the Dutch took advantage of that in the 88th minute (10 corner kicks later… really?).
extra time would’ve given Mexico time to regroup and get back on the attack. you keep neglecting to mention that an EXAGGERATED DIVE produced a WINNING PENALTY IN EXTRA TIME and saying shit like “all players dive whatever” isn’t going to erase the fact that a bad call let a team slide through that ended up continuing to fizzle until they got knocked out in the semifinals. meanwhile, a team that was on the rise after coming out of a dark period was denied the chance to prove themselves on a quarterfinal stage. shit’s weak, C’MON.
no use even trying to argue with me, I have too much love for a team that I have supported through bad managers and heartbreaking losses, shit’s in my blood and it’s how I was raised. for once, however, like other Mexican fans I wasn’t thinking “ah well, figures” after an expected loss, this time around for the first time in my life I was questioning how they didn’t win the match. a sufrir con El Tri LMAO.
Anonymous asked: Wait wait wait... You're really gonna make fun of the Netherlands? Why? For making it to the semi-finals and losing a game to Argentina that Argentina completely didn't deserve to win?! Didn't Holland completely embarrass Spain this year? You're mad about Mexico? Did you watch the game? Mexico stopped playing! They thought they could win with a one-goal lead! I know you're sour but don't act like any Mexico forward wouldn't have done the same thing Robben did. The end.
LMAO come on. Holland slowly fizzled out after every game, great start in the group stage doesn’t mean a great finish in the group stage. they relied too heavily on their counterattacks and while that worked against a Spain that was showing signs of weakness since their loss to Brazil last year and Australia, they weren’t able to get past Costa Rica and Argentina who didn’t give them the space to counterattack. Holland got one break against Mexico and landed it, then cheated for the win. the fact that they advanced on a dive is embarrassing, how can you commend them for getting to the semi-finals?
also are you kidding, Mexicans don’t dive, they get up and play. this ain’t Europe. THE END.
