    Round of 16 thread

    Always a bit sad to reach this stage as the bulk of the games are in the past but here’s where the serious stuff starts.

    Cbf to post the fixtures so a mod can edit as they please but we needed a thread

    The tournament will probably start getting a bit boring at this point. Will miss the 4 games a day.

    4 games a day was way too much. I understand it needs to be that way but I can't do anything but highlights with that much content. Much prefer this phase of the tournament.

    Or at least I would if I still had a team to care about

    The timezone is also completely killer for Aus. Haven't been able to watch any of the games because I've had to go to sleep (though part of that is also because I've been feeling under the weather)

    Glad it’s at this stage now, likely watch more games and the added advantage of still having a team to follow. Just need a break in the weather really to force me inside..
    And once the storm is over you won’t remember how you made it through,how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure,in fact,whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won’t be the same person who walked in. Haruki Murakami .

    The first day of the tournament with no matches is always a sad day indeed. Plenty of good stuff stil to come obviously, but it's definitely the point where that "something good is coming to an end" feeling begins to loom.

    I always find myself getting into big tournaments regardless of the sport, most often for geeking out about table permutations. The bit where table nerdery is no longer relevant definitely feels like something missing.

    There's an aspect of that to the play. Unless you're really invested in one of the teams, knockout matches are usually far less dramatic as there are fewer things for teams to aim for.

    Some absolute crackers to come in the last 16. A couple of matches that would look good as semis if they had happened to start us off tomorrow. Been a good tournament so far, one of the best in a while despite VAR.

    Probably because the reason why went right over your head.

    World Cups do possess something during their group stages that they lose during the knockouts, the daily abundance of matches alongside the inclusion of smaller countries/lopsided fixtures being foremost. I think the competition comes closest to a ''festival of football'' idea during its group stages.
