Robben could be out too, injured himself in the 6-1 trouncing of Hungary.

Well it doesn't matter he's out of the World Cup. So's Essien, Bosingwa and Ballack. Yahoo! is calling it the Chelsea curse.

You can now add John Obi Mikel to that list.

I've got my holidays set up to catch the entire World Cup in the couch with my old man & my brother. It feels...awesome smile.gif

 

I've got Spain to win it, Australia to be the surprise package and Argentina as the major disappointment.

Well, it was a decent performance last night. We had to come back from a goal down twice and the Cameroonians played great, and my confidence in the team has completely resurged following the performance. We're playing with much more heart and spirit than four years ago, our team is much more solid and skillful, and the lavish send-off to the fans will hold us in good stead ahead of the first game against Ghana.

 

Like YouMeSupreme, I have a four-day weekend next weekend, then four days of school before three weeks of mid-year break. Most of it will be consumed by the World Cup, so I think it's time to start stocking up on Doritoes and beer. wink.gif

 

And funny to see Australia falter to the Americans; perhaps I won't be receiving many snarly comments about Serbia this week. tounge.gif

Well considering they beat Spain it's not that bad, not as bad as New Zealand colgate.gif

 

But i think America will top their group and maybe even beat england, while England has better players, America are greater as a team.

It's just that this past week, since Serbia lost to New Zealand, everyone at school has been giving me sh*t since I claimed that Serbia would finish higher than Australia, yet our result against the Kiwis seemed to prove otherwise. tounge.gif

 

I mean, if Australia beats Serbia I'll still be happy; after all, I was born here. tounge.gif

lol, Chelsea curse? But yeah, it's good from Chelsea's point of view. All these players not participating in the World Cup means they don't get injured during the WC and they still have enough time to recuperate before the EPL starts. tounge.gif

 

But seriously, these are all important players for their national teams and not having them play in the biggest tournament of football is a major disappointment.

Realised today I have to work during the World Cup final. Should England make it I'm going to come down with an extremely volatile case of invisibility. Thinking I may get something similar anyway should England not make it. I mean who wants to miss the WC Final? Pfft whatsthat.gif

lol.gif I'll give you guys credit, you were more accurate. The game itself was pretty tame and we had more plays on goal, but typically our finishing was poor and despite all our efforts Paston was hardly tested. Thankfully we were playing a relatively weak side so surely we won't be that poor when it comes to the group stage, but it's still alarming to play that tamely before the World Cup.

 

The two drunk guys were a disgrace as well; portrays our supporters to all be violent drunks and they unnecessarily throw the team off further. confused.gif

Sorry, just returned to this topic now.

Yeah, although the game was tame, it was your defence that let your team down. I think your attack played better than ours, but our defence was better than yours so thats how we snuck one in.

Furthermore, if you were to ever get a decent shot on goal, Mark Paston would be there. He is an outstanding keeper. A great shotstopper.

The partnership between Vidić and Subotić is crucial, plus the reinforcement from Ivanović on the right is just as important. It's been so far so good with injuries, however Vidić and Stanković have been having a few problems as of late which would be a huge blow to us as they're our best players.

 

Anywho, four days now! icon14.gif

For anyone that wants to watch it....i think Sky Sports News are showing the full game of England's warm up match against the Platinum Stars.

 

I think Sky must of nicked the rights at the last minute because BBC were going to stream it online for free, strange that SSN is showing it though instead of the normal SS channel.

 

If you can put up with those sh*tty horns that is suicidal.gif.

Wow, those f*cking horns are annoying, I hope they don't keep doing it during the world cup games, sat there for 2 hours listening to them would do my head in, be even worse in real life, shame they're too lazy to chant. angry.gif

 

But bring it on, I'm really looking forward to it, not the horns though.

It is streaming on the BBC website. England Hardly playing amazing, though hopefully they are treating this like a training match.

 

I hope in the near future those horns will be banned. Or the people blowing them die of exhaustion.

For a while England played dreadfully but I think they have definetly picked it up a little and are having more possession and control. Now 3-0.

Nani is now out of the World Cup. No wonder FIFA suggests you pick the maximum 23-man squad...

I was really looking forward to seeing him shine at the WC after the tremendous 2nd part of the season he had with Man Utd.

This World Cup is going to be below par player wise. I read that Benzema, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Las Diarra, Ballack, Pirlo & Julio Cesear are out of the World Cup. Add that to Ferdinand, Essien, Robben & Drogba and that looks rather scary

Hmm. Benzema, Ronaldinho, Lass and Pirlo weren't picked for their respective national squads. Ballack, Ferdinand and Essien are definitely out with injuries. Kaka is fine; I don't know where you got that from. Julio Cesar is also fine; just because he wasn't picked first for their recent friendly doesn't mean he's out (Brazil didn't want him injured). Robben and Drogba have possibilities of taking part in the finals (apparently).

It'll be below par concerning big names, but the World Cup is usually where new big players are found.

Julio César and Kaká are a must for our team. I think that we, brazilians, would literally kill Dunga if he kept them out of the Cup. Also, I don't think that Ronaldinho's skills are as good as they were before. Sure, he can do insane tricks with the ball, but it looks like he is losing the ability to actualy play the game.

 

Also, there's a number of brazilian players that should be in the team, like Neymar, from Santos FC. The only concern that I had about him in the cup is that, in the penalties, he tend to do a little stop to confuse the goalie, and I'm damn sure he would get penalized for that...

 

In my opinion, our team is "meh", just the average. We have the usual players that need to be in the team, some new figures that don't play that well, and some old figures (Grafite) who were absent from the country. I think we won't pass through Portugal - Yeah, I'm that confident.

 

Also, I didn't like that much of the opening of the World Cup. Found it a little too rushed, as in the quality of the overall setup, which wasn't that good. You guys can go all racist saying "Come on, it's Africa!" And that's exactly why they should have made it insanely good, to prove everyone's wrong about the continent being filled with naked people hunting animals.

It's finally World Cup time! biggrin.gif

 

I've decided to have a flutter on the Dutch to win it, odds of 12/1 which are pretty sweet. Also, Messi to be top scorer of the competition at 10/1.

South Africa - Mexico, just hours away. wooo, i'm so happy. colgate.gif

 

 

 

First 25 minutes, Mexico has proven better, South Africa is trying, but yet to have a chance. Mexico goalie is tiny 1,72 m. The Fans are quite loud. Gio Dos Santos is a great player.

Now that is the first time i've ever heard of being in an offside position if the keeper got a head of the last man even if there is a player on the line, had me scratching my head for a minute until the commentators clarified. (Edit: Wrapped my head around it now blush.gif)

 

I would say South Africa have been the better side but Mexico are coming into their stride strong now.
