So the first match is in a few hours, are you exited? I have hopes that it will be a ****ing awesome tournament.
1966, mother****er.opening ceremony was modest and decent,interesting compared to the tipical ceremony stuff
still my country is no competing so **** you,I will go for england since they never won a cup despite being one of the best teams and they have the rooney,the epitome of all things british
I think they'll struggle...ageing squad. Ribery and Anelka need to turn up.South Africa has a better offense than I thought. Rooting for France in the next game
Mexico oughta be in a similar situation.They are possibly, although several of their players don't play in South Africa. Also the other teams have been training there for a good 2 and a bit weeks to acclimatise. They were partially carried today by the 12th man, the fans.
And they can make up their pathetic excuses on the plane. Watch the newspapers go nuts on the ''altitude'' and the ''injured Rooney'' and the ''bad refereeing''. Which is all summed up as a big headline;If England don't beat USA tomorrow, then they might as well pack their bags now.
Bullshit. Are you seriously suggesting that the only thing preventing English victory during the last 44 years has been bad luck?Actually our team on paper shits on most others, and we have arguably the best player in the world. Its just that for some reason they convert this on the pitch, if England did play to their potential, no one could beat them.
ARGENTINA? Have you seen their defence? Maradona doesn't know what he's doing! Put Holland in there insteadIt's always hilarious to see the Brits expecting gold in every single tournament, and always get disappointed. Your team isn't that great, people. Anyway, the favourites seem to be Spain, Brazil and Argentina..
Yeah exactly, seems most outside of England seem to assume every football fan here thinks 'ENGLAND ARE TAKING IT HOME THIS YEAR FOR SURE!' but its certainly not the case. The fact that they did so poor in the last world cup, and the fact that they didn't even qualify for the previous Euros means that the general consensus is that we expect England to be knocked out, anyone who thinks otherwise needs to get their heads out of their arses.Trust me, we all don't share the same opinion that England are going to win it. We sure hope they do and there is no argument that they are serial underachievers. Great players but not the best team, hoping for semi's this year.
