    Ban the vuvuzela. I will not be able to watch any game with the sound on if the 90% of the sound is those freaking horns. Not ok.

    I wonder how many wierd goals we are going to get from that new ball? Goal of the tournament is going to come for New Zealand against Italy. Go Shane Smeltz!

    Has anyone noticed the quality of the grass yesterday? In both games (different stadiums) the players kept slipping :/

    Edit:
    About those horns, I hardly notice them since I'm already half-deaf :D

    Nice work by South Korea.

    England hasn't beaten USA in the World Cup for a LONG time. I wonder what will happen in that game this morning.

    Go USA! Imagine if they managed to win two World Cup games against England in a row.

    I don't know if it was the new ball or just Robert Green.

    Aw, if only Altidore had managed to sneak that other shot past Green. It would have been hilarious to have seen USA beat England first up. Oh well, go Algeria!

    Hey, I love Football...but this thread is about Soccer (or Futball if you like)...so I don't know why you're getting all worked up... :p



    So... a 1-1 tie. No overtime, no sudden death...no, the final score is a tie. F***ing Bull-S**t if you ask me. -.-

    Apparently, the Brits didn't see the French...because, other than that, my predictions were spot on! :evil:



    Bring on game 2! :bigeyes:

    Bit of a knob really aren't you to be honest...

    Bad result that. Exactly sums up why I wouldn't pick Rob Green!

    Wow dude, you hat-...I mean, 'dislike' the English types more than most people. Almost as much as me! :evil: :p :evil:



    (Seriously though, I like England and English folks in general...I just don't like any of their teams. This post was not meant to offend any of our fine English members here on the BoM. It's sole purpose is to "push their buttons" as it were...because nothing says 'international competition' like some good ol' rivalry.)

    (p.s. - The legal disclaimer above should be set at a 4pt font size, and have an additional 500 words of nonsense added to it...but you can't reduce the font size on the BoM, and I'm too lazy to write an additional 500 words. :rolleyes: )

    Boring is a matter of perspective. i find baseball to be one of the most boring sports. It takes forever to get to the plate were a person scratches, spits and take all the time of the world to hit a ball.

    The problem today with football, soccer for the colonies who always find a way to be special, is one old man in particular. Once that FIFA chap is gone the sport can be dragged into the 21 century with a few crucial rule adjustments.

    Meanwhile the English press is polishing their muskets for a proper welcoming back home if they do not improve.

    The French did what was expected, and the Dutch are convinced they already won the worldcup and only need to play 7 exibition matches. As ususal. The Germans are quiet.

    To be honest, the kick off was 19.30, I'm surprised the US didn't just turn up at 19.41 then claim victory.

    Very well fought over win by Ghana there. In my opinion deserved and I predict that Germany is going to have a very tough time in this group because the Serbs showed their quality as well.

    I've got to say I love the vuvuzela. Yes the sound is awful but after 7 games I got used to it. Thing is, those african fans in the stadium are absolutely a joy to watch. They seem to have so much more fun than the average supporter and the ambiance they create is second to none.

    Tonight the Germany VS the Socceroos. Germany should be able to win this one although I'm very curious in what way. With Ballack gone they don't seem to have much starpower, or players who can make the difference. On the other hand that didn't help England or France......

    Tomorrow Netherlands VS Denmark. I predict a draw but hope for a victory for the Orange. They certainly have the better team but the danes know the dutch game and player inside out. This will not be a walkover.

    Wouldn't the score have been about 40-0 if they turned up 11 minutes late?

    I don't want to sound rude but I was at a bar yesterday when the USA team was playing and they had it on tv. Now the bar was full, not crowded, but full. It didn't appear that anybody was watching. I asked the barmaid to change the channel to NASCAR Nationwide Qualifying and she did. Nobody reacted.

    I wasn't giving it more than a 3, a month ago. I thought I'd see some of the dutch games in the first round, but until now I've seen at least one half of every match and I give it a 4 or perhaps a 5 now. It's consuming most of my free time.
