Well, yesterday sure was fun, wasn't it?  We're down to eight teams now, and the quarterfinals kick off Friday, leaving us bereft of World Cupness, and with two whole days where we have nothing to talk about. Here's some things to talk about!

- Player of the tournament so far?
- Goal of the tournament?
- Game of the tournament?
- Most surprising player?
- Most surprising team?
- Most disappointing player?
- Most disappointing team?

Believe it or not, there's also Arsenal stuff - transfers, new kits, their impending trip to the US, etc.  In short, I lied earlier - there's all sorts of stuff to talk about!  So, here's a place to talk about the stuff I listed, or anything else Arsenal or football/World Cup related.  If something important happens, we'll of course put it in its own thread, but for now, this is your one stop conversational shop.
