World Cup 2010

Post by MALsPa »

Possibly my favorite sporting event! Who's your favorite team? Almost always pulling for the upset here. Ouch, Rob Green let one get away from him: England 1, USA 1. And South Africa managed a 1-1 tie with Mexico in the opening game.

I'd be surprised if England wins it. But what do I know, I'm no JP Morgan! :lol:

I' m really curious to see Brazil play again today, besides that I think in the preliminaries most teams will just start it slowly...

We are running an office sweep on the world cup. As there are 8 of us in total, that divides up nicely to four teams each.

I have drawn South Africa, Cote d'Ivoire, Switzerland and Uruguay. I'm obviously having a lucky day. :roll:

I'm still gobsmacked that North Korea scored against Brazil. I thought Brazil were meant to be good?

True, Brazil are good. But we don't know much about the North Korean team. For all we know, they could be genetically modified super-human football players.

Check the back of their necks for a barcode..

But also, speaking of the England vs. USA match, it was appalling playing on behalf of the English team. Especially Robert Green's slip up, costing us a win against the USA. Then again, he is human. We all make mistakes.

right now is Germany vs. Serbia, I wonder if Serbia might perform a miracle or if German quality soccer just performs as usual

Germany loses!

USA ties Slovenia! That might hurt the USA's chances to advance.

There will be a tough competition between Brazil and Argentina and it seems if this would be the case, Brazil will win. Brazil has never lose in last five years against Argentina and Brazil have won world cup for five times.

If they don't get through, the next time you'll see three lions on Wayne Rooney will be at Knowsley Safari Park.

I hear that Capello has called up the Chuckle Brothers for the final group game. At least they're paid to take the ****.

I know a few others, but this is a family-friendly forum... :lol:

The red card against Kaka was stupid, dirty tactics by the IC there.
