Hey, plenty of Americans enjoy the World Cup. Even if I am more supportive of the Italian team, being of Italian descent and them being, you know, watchable.

It's like having your head stuck in a swarm of bees with that annoying instrument they use. Hate, hate, hate it.

The France v Uruguay match tonight is the sort of spectacle that would put people off watching football for ever, dreadful entertainment!

 In the Scots absence I'll be cheering on the US tomorrow for all of my good friends over the ocean!

 Andy, I just couldn't bring myself to do it...

I agree the Vuvuzela the south african trumpet is a pain for everyone ears.

I doesn't support France for the only reason that i hate the coach Domenech who is arroguant, pretentious and completely ignorant about football and make this team boring since 4 years and he doesn't know how to make a team then there are so many great french players available.

I even hope they will loose because he will be kicked out and replaced by Laurent Blanc who is an old french player who won the world cup in 1998.

About Ireland, i agree it's dirty what did Henry but you should not forget that Irish stolen a team with a fake penalty during the qualifications and without that ashame penalty they wouldn't won that game so the Henry'hand make the things all right for the Ireland.

My favorites are Spain (European Champions) and Argentina (because Messi) and as always Brazil the eternal favorite team.

I have a thought to Dutchs too because they have greats players but they always fall in the last hurdle.

England has a good team but they have the worst goalkeepers of the planet since ten years and no victory with a bad goalkeeper you seen why again yesterday.

Anyway i wish good luck to every teams except Italy because i hate cheaters and screw you Materazzi the butcher !

I enjoy football, but the World Cup is the only event that really excites me. I'm not so into it that I'd get up at odd hours to watch the Premier League, and MLS is fairly dull. I've enjoyed some of the other international competitions, though (watched a good bit of the Euros in '08).

Sorry you guys lost.We are going to need a lot more than just good officials to beat Brasil,but you never know.:rolleyes:

Post by: Nicolas on July 02, 2010, 06:24:49 PM
And... Brazil is out. And just because of their own stupidity. They played their best football in the World Cup during the first half and the first ten minutes of the second, but as soon as the Netherlands scored their first goal, they forgot everything they had done and started playing awfully. And then Felipe Melo did that stupid foul...

Dirty Handball.. That got to be Rough for Ghana
Title: The world cup
Post by: yidosengland on July 03, 2010, 12:07:32 PM
shame for Ghana i think they deserved to go through ........ as for the other match Holland deserved to win but its such a shame that two sides with such great traditions of playing the game the proper way with fine flowing football resort to to diving and cynical fouls , as soon as things werent going the way of Brazil they become so indisciplined and were lucky to only have one sent of .

look at Robben and Van Persie , two very gifted players who would be truly world class if it wasnt for the fact they throw themselves to the ground at every chance they get the slightest touch and they are down , if they stayed on their feet they would be classed up with Messi who gets fouled but rides the challenges and keeps going and in most cases scores goals he wouldnt have done if he went to ground so easily .

i have some great friends in Holland but i fell the winner looks destined to come from todays half of the draw
Title: The world cup
Post by: dutchieblue on July 03, 2010, 01:58:37 PM
What an ending i also felt sorry for Ghana.At least that dirty handball makes us play against  Uruguay without Suarez ;)
I agree it's a shame there isn't more proper football and throwing yourself to the ground seems to be a hype these days.
Title: The world cup
Post by: Anton on July 03, 2010, 05:45:44 PM
I agree totally with you Andy.

Such a shame for Robben who is a great skilled players to dive and play comedy. I would add that Van Bommel is also a very dirty player he should get red card to every match he plays.

Very true, so far i'm happy he is in the dutch team.He's usually in the right spot at the right time and does whatever needs to be done to win.

Hoping for Spain now. I can't support Germany, they remind me too much of Rosenborg.

Not sure who i want to win tonight.Beating Germany in the finals would be fantastic but losing from them is still very hard for many dutch people.But in all honesty i really enjoyed watching them play so far and they deserved to come this far.

Post by: yidosengland on July 07, 2010, 07:28:39 PM
its amazing that probably two of the greatest sides i have ever seen have been Dutch but never managed to win the world cup and this side with very few stars but great team work may just go and become world champions

We fought hard but i think the best team won.Congrats Spain.
