  1. From IFAB... feinting to kick the ball once the kicker has completed the run-up (feinting in the run-up is permitted); the referee cautions the kicker
  2. Bummer. Especially when you waste a shot #Yeardle #257.04166666667 https://histordle.com/yeardle/ Should've got that sooner.
  3. #Worldle #317 3/6 (100%) https://worldle.teuteuf.fr Failed on the capital.
  4. It was excellent. Just in time to change the format
  5. The guy got cancelled didn't he? #Heardle #282 https://spotify.com/heardle?r=share

  8. #Yeardle #255.04166666667 https://histordle.com/yeardle/ I presume that was an error in the clues?

  13. #Heardle #SpotifyWrapped #279 I found out the year's top female artist by playing today's Wrapped edition of Heardle. Curious who it is? https://spotify.com/heardle?r=share-wrapped ^^^^ what's all the extra guff about?
  14. And he scored on the first World Cup St Andrew's day
  15. I'd argue 1950 was worse, when there wasn't a final. The fact that 8 of the third place teams would get through makes it a bit better than 1954, as there's more chance of progressing if you lose your first game. Far from ideal format but better than 16×3 in my book.
  16. #Yeardle #253.04166666667 https://histordle.com/yeardle/ First Ken Bruce for a while...
  17. #Worldle #313 6/6 (100%) https://worldle.teuteuf.fr Lucky last shot, no chance with the bonuses though...
  18. One possible format would be 12 groups of 4 playing two group games between seeds and non seeds, like at the 1954 World Cup. At least that way the final group games would be taking place simultaneously. It would mean 48 group stage matches, the same as now and the same as with 16x3.
  19. It was yourself that mentioned unfairness. I'm not a huge fan of letting some third placed sides through, but it does have some advantages. It's almost impossible to win two group games and go out (under the current World Cup format that could happen), on the flip side you could lose your first two games and still have something to play for. Plus it allows for a straight knockout format from the second round onwards when there's multiples of six groups. As a sporting spectacle though it's still light years ahead of groups of three teams with two qualifying.
