Seen this posted on reddit - a new sub for goals that get lost due to others upvoting boring crappy gaols - https://www.reddit.com/r/anonymousgoals/

This one - https://streamable.com/0344

Epic goal and hilarious celebration.

thanks kiwi, I have watched a lot of games and you could say that the Dutch dominated with an old-fashioned 433 attacking system. Final was though against Denmark (great team too!). I have to admit that I like women's football now too: full attacking play of most teams, no complaining with referees on every single decisions, hardly any schwalbes. Just football. Not as physic as the men's game but still very technical play.

The Dutch union decided 10 years ago to let good women play along boys until 18 year. That has helped pushing their skills a lot.

Good to hear. Interesting one on them being competitive up to 18. That's really good.

When we moved to NZ, watching live various European club football stopped pretty quickly. The CL games are the only ones well-timed for us - around 6:00AM onwards. But, at times I've not missed it much, given how many antics there are in the game.

So, what you say about the Women's football, is quite appealing as I do think (I guess like most of us) that there's so much crap in a game, that it's not THAT enjoyable.

if you look at RM - ManU for the supercup. Not the best game, also because of the defensive style of ManU. Oh well.

I am wondering if Everton will be able to push themselves in between the top-5 in the PL. That is the goal of Ronald Koeman. I have to admit, that apart from FIFA FUT I am also losing my interest in real life football a bit. It is so predictable, full of money clowns, crazy transfers and to be frank I believe that the game is getting less attractive. I hate the way the FIFA is treating everything; from video ref to giving WC to strange countries like Qatar.

Oh well. Enough bashing  ;D Looking foward to another FIFA Pro clubs with the mates. Been playing a lot of different games lately (just started Bloodborne). So hapoy days here...

Oh an Feyenoord won the Dutch supercup. Bad game but who will rem3ember that in 5 years from now  ;D ?

It's funny you should say that about losing interest in real football. My friend in London and I where saying exactly the same thing the other day. I can remember more about games in the 1990s than I can about games last season. Very rarely watch the highlights or many live games these days!

I've also been playing some different games. Don Bradmans Cricket 17, on co-op with a FIFA friend has been fun, completed Sleeping Dogs and it's DLC, and with the PS plus games this month, Just Cause 3 and an Assasins Creed and dozens of old PS+ games waiting to be played in my library, there's plenty to play.
