Denmark should just think about packing up and walking out of the tournament. Shameful if they came under UEFA pressure to play so soon. You could see how badly their players were affected by the incident at the time. National FA’s need to show some balls and some solidarity.

This.

You lot talking about that offside must have forgotten the Harry Kane incident at Anfield that led to the dodgy pen a few years back. Kane was already offside when the pass was played towards him. Lovren tried to intercept (he couldn't assume Kane was offside and had to try and play the ball, and there was no VAR in the PL at the time) but got a faint touch on it. Kane ran through and 'initiated contact' with Karius. Kane missed the penalty anyway, but still benefitted from being in an offside position. It's a terrible law that needs correcting, but they don't see things like that as gaining an advantage, whereas a stray hair and fraction of a millimetre (maybe) beyond the last defender is definitely seen as gaining an advantage.

We had a goal disallowed this season just gone when a defender touched the ball, perhaps playing Jota onside, but it was deemed accidental. Can’t remember the who we were playing although it was at Anfield.

I thought it was deemed the defender tried to touch it, but didn't. Therefore ball was from Liverpool player to Liverpool player and offside. 

It was late in the season, may have been Villa but not sure.

The danish national team coach has clarified in the post match interviews that there was never any real opportunity to cancel the games. They were pressured to play on or to finish the game Sunday at noon. What absolute cunt of an organisation UEFA is.

 

The Danish captain Simon Kjær was one of the worst affected and the reason he came off was because he simply couldn't handle it any longer.

I don't know if something's lost in translation, but it doesn't sound quite as bad as you suggest:

 

 

Hjulmand described how the players agreed to wait until they were sure Eriksen was OK, and then chose between the two options they were offered: either to carry on or to return on Sunday at 2pm. “There was no pressure from Uefa to play tonight,” he said. “We knew we had two options. The players couldn’t imagine not being able to sleep tonight and then having to get on the bus and come in again tomorrow. Honestly it was best to get it over with. Of course you can’t play a game with such feelings and what we tried to do was incredible.”

Sorry, Joseph, but it’s the very definition of being pressurised.


Sorry you’ve all just stood and watched a team mate effectively collapse, to all intents and purposes die, and be resuscitated on the pitch, but if you can either just finish it now or by 12 tomorrow then that’s good for us.

 

the last sentence is a very diplomatic way of saying their heads were fucked. And why wouldn’t they be. They’d just gone through a very traumatic situation and were being told “yeah, sorry to hear that but just get on with it.”

Every national FA involved should sign a letter of condemnation of UEFA’s behaviour. They need a shot across the bows.

- Vi blev præsenteret for to muligheder. Kampen skulle spilles færdig i aften (lørdag, red.) eller søndag kl. 12.00.

- Det var totalt uoverskueligt for spillerne at tage hjem på hotellet, ikke sove hele natten og så starte bussen for at køre tilbage søndag og spille kampen færdig.

- Helt ærligt handlede det om at få det overstået. Det var, hvad spillerne valgte sammen, siger en meget bevæget Kasper Hjulmand på pressemødet efter nederlaget.
 

-> We got 2 choices. The game should be finished tonight or tomorrow Sunday at 12. 
it wasn’t something the team could face to go back to the hotel, not sleep all night and then start the bus to get back here and play n Sunday. 
to tell you the truth, we just wanted to get it over with. That was what the players chose. Says Kasper Hjulmand at the press conference after the defeat. 
 

those was his exact words.

Utterly bizarre. Shaw and Chilwell have played really well this season, ridiculous they are being shifted so there is basically a set piece taker in the side.

 

Mings was dreadful in the last friendly, that type of performance should play you out of the team.

Absolutely disgraceful that UEFA even considered it acceptable to ask did they want to play on, never mind allow it. Zero consideration of what every single player went through, it was obvious to everyone that that neither team was in a fit state to play.
 

Completely disgusting and UEFA should be universally derided for that.

Correct.  Even Fabregas and Richards said they would not have been able to continue the game as the Danes did.  I actually found the honesty from both of them refreshing.

Peter Schmeichel was on bbc 5 live earlier criticising UEFA for this, if you want to hear that and also the feed that most tv stations was using, which is the one that was zooming in on Christian Eriksen getting chest compressions etc. was an UEFA controlled ‘world feed’.  The more I hear about these cunts the more despicable they are. Utter utter scum.

What are the Finns saying? Were they pressured into playing too?

 

I was shocked to see game was resumed so soon but simply cannot believe someone can pressure you into playing after what happened. You refuse and go public with what they are trying to do to you and everybody will be on your side. This day and age this is all that matters.

I can’t imagine the amount of tests he’ll be going through before stepping onto a footy pitch again. I’m trying to remember the name of the football player from years ago with the hole in the heart?

The doctor doing all of Spurs medical was being interviewed and they say the go through a full examination each year. He said that until 2019, when he last examined Eriksen, he had perfect heart condition, obviously couldn’t say if something had happened later on. He said he was worried he had missed something, after what happened yesterday, so went over all the test results again and still the same result, perfect heart tests.

Those words are the only ones that really matter, when understanding how UEFA saw the situation.

Russia is a vast country, with a fair interest in football, isn't it? 

Why no random discovery of a new superstar? It seems to defy the odds of not uncovering an Owen, or a Rooney, nevermind a Messi or Ronaldo. 

Probably lack of facilities and resources is my guess? For all the faults of Communist Russia,sport was high on their agenda even if was for propaganda purpose as much as anything. A lot of Russia is now a soulless wasteland devoid of social organisations such as sports clubs. Many stand abandoned and ruined in former USSR countries too.

#southgateout trending on Twitter because of his rumoured team selection…

Looking belatedly at an article in a free newspaper magazine about the Euros and trying to compute why Croatia are 6/1 against when they have Modric , Rebic, Kramaric, Orsic, Kovacic, Perisic and Vlasic ( and probably a load of other decent ic's )

    • Good little article on Ipswich in the early 80s. 
        https://beyondthelastman.com/2021/07/20/how-ipswich-town-came-within-a-whisker-of-the-treble-in-1981/
    • As Villareal aren't willing to throw the house out the window, I'll be amazed if FSG are.
    • https://www.marca.com/futbol/villarreal/2021/08/02/61081a3146163f32578b45f0.html   Fiel a su política de control financiero, el Villarreal no quiere perder la cabeza a la hora de de concretar su gran apuesta en el mercado de fichajes este verano. Los amarillos buscan un extremo que satisfaga las necesidades que demanda Unai Emery esta temporada con el fin a de afrontar con mayores garantías una campaña con la exigencia de la que se avecina . Pero lo cierto es que las opciones que han tanteado los amarillos exceden la capacidad actual de gasto del conjunto de la Plana. Y pese a estar dispuestos a realizar un nuevo esfuerzo tras los fichajes de Foyth o Día, tienen claro que no van a tirar la casa por la ventana y desestabilizar las cuentas del club. El holandés Arnaut Danjuma sigue siendo el primero en la lista de opciones que maneja la secretaría técnica amarilla. Pero para que su llegada pueda ser un hecho, el Bournemauth, club dueño de su pase, debería rebajar una exigencia que ronda los 25 millones de euros. Una cifra que los castellonenses, ni mucho menos, piensan alcanzar como demuestra la oferta inicial realizada y que no superaba los 15 millones. Cabe recordar que el dos veces internacional holandés llegó hace dos veranos al conjunto inglés previo pago de 16.5 millones de euros. Y que sus actuaciones , especialmente esta campaña donde ha anotado 15 goles y ha repartido siete asistencias , le han revalorizado hasta el punto que varios conjuntos de la Premier (entre los que ha sonado el Liverpool) se han interesado por sus servicios. El director general del conjunto "Cherrie", Scott Parker, confirmó recientemente haber descartado ofertas por el futbolista: "Sí que existe la posibilidad de que "Arnie" deje el club. Está bien documentado que ha habido ofertas para él, y que han sido rechazadas. Me siento aquí pensando que existe la posibilidad de que Arnie se vaya, pero también me siento aquí sabiendo que si esa oferta no es la oferta correcta, entonces se quedará y jugará un papel importante en lo que hacemos", aseguró. El futbolista ha estado lesionado durante toda la pretemporada y, pese a estar ya entrenando, no jugará el primer partido liguero que su equipo disputará el próximo fin de semana ante el West Brom. La falta de ventas condiciona La actual coyuntura económica ha frenado un mercado que, en otras circunstancias, podría haber llegado con importantes ofertas por jugadores del Villarreal. La campaña realizada por futbolistas como Pedraza, Pau Torres o Gerard Moreno no se ha traducido, al menos de momento, por propuestas irrechazables en el seno del club de La Plana. Una circunstancia que impide grandes desembolsos tras los ya realizados. En su momento el consejero delegado del Villarreal, Roig Negueroles, ya reconoció a Marca que jugadores como Guedes, estaban "fuera de la capacidad de mercado" para el Villarreal. Como en el caso del luso y si no se produce alguna venta por cifras importantes, el conjunto amarillo podría buscar nuevas alternativas si el equipo inglés se planta en sus exigencias.   Translation...   True to its policy of financial control, Villarreal does not want to lose its head when it comes to making its big bet in the transfer market this summer. The yellows are looking for an extreme that meets the needs that Unai Emery demands this season in order to face with greater guarantees a campaign with the demands of the one that lies ahead. But the truth is that the options that the yellows have tested exceed the current spending capacity of the Plana as a whole. And despite being willing to make a new effort after the signings of Foyth or Día, they are clear that they are not going to throw the house out the window and destabilize the club's accounts.   The Dutchman Arnaut Danjuma remains the first on the list of options handled by the yellow technical secretariat. But for his arrival to be a fact, Bournemauth, the club that owns his pass, should lower a requirement of around 25 million euros. A figure that the people of Castellón, by no means, intend to reach as shown by the initial offer made and that did not exceed 15 million.   It should be remembered that the two-time Dutch international arrived two summers ago to the English team after paying 16.5 million euros. And that his performances, especially this campaign where he has scored 15 goals and has distributed seven assists, have revalued him to the point that several Premier teams (among which Liverpool have sounded) have been interested in his services.   The general manager of the "Cherrie" team, Scott Parker, recently confirmed that he had ruled out offers for the footballer: "There is a possibility that" Arnie "will leave the club. It is well documented that there have been offers for him, and that they have been rejected. I sit here thinking that there is a possibility that Arnie will leave, but I also sit here knowing that if that offer is not the right offer, then he will stay and play a big role in what we do, "he said. The footballer has been injured throughout the preseason and, despite being already training, will not play the first league game that his team will play next weekend against West Brom.   Lack of sales conditions    The current economic situation has slowed down a market that, in other circumstances, could have come with important offers for Villarreal players. The campaign carried out by footballers such as Pedraza, Pau Torres or Gerard Moreno has not been translated, at least for the moment, by irrefutable proposals within the La Plana club. A circumstance that prevents large outlays after those already made.  At the time, the CEO of Villarreal, Roig Negueroles, already acknowledged to Marca that players like Guedes were "out of market capacity" for Villarreal. As in the case of the Portuguese and if there is no sale for important figures, the yellow team could look for new alternatives if the English team is planted in their demands.
