You mean the England Goalkeeper equalised

I'm not fussed with what happens to England, but it was magnificent to see our boy Stevie G put one past the Everton No.1 hehehe

Didn’t watch it because too busy watching the Texas Longhorns beat TCU in baseball 14 to 1, even that blowout was more exciting than a 1 to 1 tie.

As mentioned before, I don't care about the World Cup, but I'll kill the next person I see with a Vuvuzela.

I hate Vuvuzelas. You'd think you'd hear the atmosphere in an England game, but even there, the only thing I hear are bees. ****ing hell, it's annoying. The US took England on nicely, though.

Well, what do you know? It's not thanksgiving but the english goalie seriously looked like a turkey when he gave that goal away to the US.

Tommorow's games will all suck, though. Best game so far was Argentina vs. Nigeria.

Is anyone else noticing the inappopriateness of the ball for powered long shots?!!

Seriously, adidas should stop trying to renivent the ball every four years. FIFA should poll the players/leagues which ball they most enjoy using and go with that. Of course - there's probably a multi billion dollar contract between FIFA and adidas that would put a dampener on such a common sense idea

Argentina vs Nigeria >> Worst coach or not, I personally would expect to see the Argies prevail, maybe 2-0

England vs USA >> I don't think this will be the walkover expected by some section of the British media, I'll go for 1-1
Great work J7!! You must have one of those Back To The Future Sports Almanacs

Here's my predictions for Day3! It would be good to get one right for a change......

DAY 3

SERBIA v GHANA: 1-1
GERMANY v AUSTRALIA: 2-0
NETHERLANDS v DENMARK: 2-0


If any of you folks are on Twitter, there are a few celebs that seem to be keen on the world cup and comment on it - including during the game >

*Simon Pegg
*Bill Bailey
*Russell Brand
*Peter Serafinowicz - who posted 'activate invisiball' when Green fumbled
*Wil Wheaton - he managed to incorporate a SW and Pen n Paper RPG reference into his into world cup tweets yesterday

You could also just look at what everyone is saying about it via http://twitter.com/#search?q=%23worldcup ... including Darth Vader: Do or do not, there is no tie

What I don't get is if something ain't broke don't fix it, can you really make a ball more ball like?

Hehe, I was only one goal of on South Korea game, thought they'd win 3-0 - Though I forgot to write that prediction up here. However currently Slovenia and Algeria are derailing my predictions, this game is horrific, at this point I'd be surprised to see a goal, let lone the 2-0 Slovenia win I thought...


SERBIA v GHANA: This is a fascinatingly difficult to call game, in what is a very tight group in that I think any of Serbia, Ghana and Australia could emerge in second place to Germany. I think Ghana may well prevail 2-1 or 3-2. On paper Serbia should have a really good defence, but it doesn't always look good in games, and they did loose 1-0 to New Zealand in the pre tournament friendlies. I think looking on to later games given history though Serbia could pull a surprise against the Germans, in what for them will be a bit of a grudge game.

GERMANY v AUSTRALIA: 2-0 I agree here with Astro, despite their injuries the Germans are the Germans, and in Lahm, I think they have the best fullback in the competition, I think Australia could finish second, but I'm not sure if they have what it takes to score against Germany.


NETHERLANDS v DENMARK: I'll go 3-0, IIRC Holland only conceded 2 goals in qualifying, and also I'm reminded of the Euro's where they stuffed Italy and France, so they should win comfortably.

Unfortunately while I've seen the goal on ESPN I didn't actually get to see the game, did Team USA at least put up a solid performance? I'd really like to see us at least advance out of group play given the lousy showing USA put up in 2006.

The U.S played quite well, I actually think a draw was a fair result, England played badly. It was a performance typical of this particular U.S team, hard work and team work, though unspectacular. England will have enough to get out of the group as Slovenia and Algeria won't score against them, who wins the group I think will come down to who scores more goals out of England and the U.S.

In other news Slovenia have managed to score an awful goal due to another goalkeeping howler to win 1-0.

Ghana managed to win with a penalty. I didn't watch the full game though, so I don't really know how well they played, but at the end of the match the Ghana coach seemed pissed, pushing off his aides who tried to congratulate him. What was up with him?

Ghana deserved to win, played the better football. The Ghana coach is also Serbian, so he did his job, but you can somewhat understand him not wanting to celebrate...

I'm happy for Ghana. Nice to have an African victory, I think they deserved the win, too and they showed some fine football from time to time.

Oh, thats unfortunate for him. He's kind of in a lose-lose situation.

Anyway the Germans are up 2-0 in just the first half. I think this was by far the most exciting match of those played in this WC'10.

EDIT: Full time: Germany 4-0 Australia. What an absolutely incredible match! Beautiful work on the German's side. Australia weren't bad, but just not good enough to cut it.

Dear World Cup people,

Please turn off that incessant buzzing sound that seems to be present at every single game thus far. In the interests of giving equal time to this obscure fringe sport called soccer, I have tuned in to a number of games, only to turn the TV off five minutes into watching because I can't stand the noise produced by what seems to be a giant swarm of very, very angry bees. It is most disconcerting and is curtailing my attempted enjoyment and understanding of this bogus sport in which players can't use their hands, wtf soccer. If no one is able to comply, I will be forced to assume that it is a sport reserved for the deaf and/or apiarists.

Thank you for your attention.




have a suggestion for the lf poll? pm me

@Niner.. vuvuzelas are a tradition in South African football. Whilst it is indeed annoying, it is quite unlikely FIFA will take a stand on it now. EQ it out in your home theatre amp, or just turn it down

Those of us whom have been following football for a long time will probably find the horns a bit easier to bear that what we used to be subjected to every year during the old Intercontinental cup aka the Toyota Cup. There was a constant siren sound that really was much more annoying than the horns... here's a clip I found on YT to demonstrate. Luckily the modern version of this tourney(World Club Championships) no longer suffers from this

View page
YouTube Video


As for the matches... Great to see another African victory for Ghana, though not a hugely convincing one...

I'm sure it is clear now why I'm cheering for Spain in this world cup as opposed to Ozstralia. I can't believe how badly they played in defense .... I'm pretty sure me and my (deceased of 8 years) grandma could have put in equivalent performance, weekend at Bernies style

Looking forward to DAY 4! Some more tips to not put money on!

JAPAN v CAMEROON: 1-1

ITALY v PARAGUAY: 1-0 >>although I really want Italy to lose because that idiot Marcello Lippi refused to include Antonio Cassano in his squad.
NEW ZEALAND v SLOVAKIA: 0-1.

Cahill never should of been sent off though, appalling decision by Dracula!

JAPAN v CAMEROON: I think Cameroon to win myself probably a 2-1; Eto'o possibly making the difference...

ITALY v PARAGUAY: I think this could have a 0-0 written all over it, or maybe Paraguay sneaking a 1-0, the problem for Italy is I'm not quite sure where their goals are going to come from...

NEW ZEALAND v SLOVAKIA: I'll go for a 1-1 here....

Indeed - especially considering Andrea Pirlo is unlikely to start, they're currently devoid of a creative playmaker. I still cant get over Lippi making his selections based on favouritism and grudges. So what if Cassano [allegedly] punched his son in the face

Disappointing performance from the Ozzies. Sure, yeah, Cahill shouldn't have been sent off, but with or without him, it didn't really make a difference.

Just watched the Japan vs. Cameroon Game.

I only saw the second half at which the Japanese were up 1-0. Good equal game from what I could tell. Should have ended 2-1 to Japan in my opinion. Sorry Cameroon that shot that hit the wood was a good one but Japan had a shot that the keep was not going to block hit the side bar right before you.

God I can't wait till South Korea take on Argentina. That is going to be a really good game. Maybe Messi will net one instead of missing 6 or 7 shots.

Cameroon were awful, and whats with playing Eto'o as a right midfielder? Japan deserved the win, but it was a very bad game, I think Cameroon were far too cocky going into it, and took the Japanese far too lightly...

To be far to the little Argentinian maestro, it wasn't as if he did anything wrong with any of his shots except the 1-on-1 which he should have done better with... All in all Messi put on the best individual display thus far, while the Germans win over Australia is the stand out team performance...

I'm not acusing him of doing anything wrong, it was just abnormal for him to have that many shots and not get a goal. I thought Argentina would win about 3-1 and Messi would get two of the goals.

Kudos to Heinze for that beautiful bullet of a header, though.

Hmmm, today didn't go to well for the j7 psychic sports hotline...

Anyways...

As I said earlier a 1-1 between New Zealand and Slovakia.

Portugal 2-2 Ivory Coast....

Brazil 4-0 North Korea...

You know what? Paraguay was surprisingly good. If they did actually know how to score a goal they'd win - as they deserved.

The Italy v Paraguay match was my favorite so far. I really like to see two teams going at it. Hence I was pleasantly surprised with Italy's relentless pressure in the last 20. I think they realise that finishing second in that group and meeting the Netherlands in the next round is something they don't want to do

Portugal is so unpredictable, but if they have some set plays up their sleeve they may pull it off

I don't think I have been excited by the matches so far. Not the ties I'm bothered with, but the football itself is afwul. Even Ivory Coast against Portugal has no goals. Luckily, some nice action by Brazil. Not amazing, but better than most in this tournament. Kudos to North Korea for making it difficult for Brazil and scoring a goal.

Here in Scotland, 1966 never happened btw

Spain seems to be the favourite but they are always the team that participate and do well, but never win lolz

I'd love to see Holland take it for a change
