Weak, weak Brazil x N.Korea match. I wasn't expecting much to begin with, but it sure as hell could have been so much better. And that single korean goal was total proof of our recklessness on the game.

I admire the heart of the North Koreans, they fought as well as they could and end up making a goal at the last minutes. Brazil left us expecting more.

wow...portugal and brazil.. lets just hope that was game 1 jitters.

Kudos to New Zealand. They played much better than Australia, even though the Slovakians bragged about being better pre-game.

DAY 6!
SPAIN v SWITZERLAND: 2-1
SOUTH AFRICA v URUGUAY: 1-0

I was pleased to note that FIFA President gave everyone an official STFU with regards to the Vuvuzelas. Its part of the African game, and has been since the 1970s. Deal with it whiteys

Some more geeky WC humour :

The vuvuzelas actually sound a lot like trumpets, if played with skill. Most of the annoying sound coming this WC comes from foreigner blokes playing it.

wow.. the first true upset of the tourney... with spain losing their opener - though I must admit - I'm not hugely surprised. I watched the swiss play Italy in a friendly (1-1) a couple weeks ago and the Swiss were reasonably impressive.

Torres and Villa definitely seem a bit rusty

I'm faintly disgusted by that win actually, if only for the sake of a watchable tournament. all the coaches of these very average teams have looked at Inter's champions league title, where they stifled opponents twice as talented as themselves and created a dreary, lifeless spectacle and then won. and they all nodded, stroked their chins and went off to work on their own versions. fine, but then you're going to get games like this one where, in all honesty, it's incredibly dull to watch, and worse is when two teams adopt the same tactics and cancel each other out - see portugal versus the Ivory coast. applaud their discipline and organisation all you want but i don't watch football for an excellent showcase of defensive excellence, i watch it for goals, drama and attacking - all of which are usually ingredients of the better world cups - and there has been very little of that so far.

in short, i blame Jose Mourinho.

They're not getting rid of those stupid horns that sound like buzzing bees? Stupidest non-decision they could have made. I don't give two ****s that it's part of South African culture, it's goddamn annoying and takes away from already limited enjoyment of this boring-ass game for a majority of Americans. I hope everything ends in a tie and nobody wins because really, with all that buzzing, everyone loses.




have a suggestion for the lf poll? pm me

Losing a first match puts pressure on a team.
Most big tournament winners start with a draw and then free-wheel themselves into the next round because they have gotten used to the weather etc.

The humidity is supposed to be devastating over there. The weather very strange and the fields terrible.

Also, most teams take shape after the first round.
For example, the Spanish right winger, Navas, was VERY bad. Same was true for Torres. Now that this is known, new players will grab their chance.
Maybe they'll play 4-4-2 next time with Torres and Villa from the start.

Same is true for Holland. It didn't work with Van der Vaart and Sneijder on the midfield. The substitute (Elia) was awesome and another one (Afellay) was too. Sneijder sucked as well and might have to fear for his place.
Now it'll all be a lot more on edge.

Not that much of a fan of Spain, but at this point in the WC, I don't care who scores, as long as someone does. But the Swiss played it well. Hopefully we'll see some South-African optimism later.

I'm gutted, so far the world cup has been a triumph for teams playing cowardly pack men behind the ball football. Is this really what the game is coming to? I refuse to accept that Switzerland played well, they had like 3 actual attacks in the whole game... This is currently the worst World Cup I've ever seen...

Even if you're ignorant and watch steroid boys throw and kick a ball, it's not excuse for being stupid...

Can we please call it football by the way? Shouting TEN FOR HUH HAH isn't really a sport now is it?

hehehe.. hey I'm with ya guys. Peace!..
Same here J7 (about worst WC), though I don't know if it's the WC or just the freaking annoying buzz of the vuvuzela I don't care if it's tradition.. burn the damn things. Same with air horns for the yahoos in the states. If I sit next to you, I will punch you in the throat if you blast it

@Z, LOL! I never knew Africa was so close to the border (USA) or is it, I live in North Africa?!? Now I'm confused.. hehe

gotta agree with ya on the call it football part. Why we (Americans) call our "football" well, uh football.. I'll never know

Because we say so and the next time you question that we will have Lucy Draper (aka Kathy Ireland) come visit you. Lucy Draper "Welcome to foot...Ball!" 99.9999999% chance that was for my own entertainment.

Spain totally deserved to win that game, Alonso's shot on the crossbar was a f***ing legend...They created sooo many chances and really played well the Swiss were just really really lucky I think.

Anyone that wants to whine about the Vuvuzela's please use this template.

Dear Black People in Africa,
I know you love blowing your vuvuzela horns at the soccer. I know it is a tradition that hearkens back to the time of apartheid, where football matches such as the Soweto Derby between Orlando Pirates and Kaiser Chiefs were the only time blacks could congregate without being shot at or told to disperse. You see, I don't care about that, and if I dont like it then that means you have to ban it. Like for realz. And if you don't I'll go on the webs and annoy others about it.
I have several friends in S Africa atm, following either Oz, Spain and Greece(neither very happy atm) Being well aquainted with South African football, they all took some fancy devices called earplugs with them They work a treat apparently

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Dear Vuvuzela Horn Blowers,

The collective sound of your horns literally gave me the shivers as I heard it while watching YouTube videos. That's not a good thing, because the shivers were those of utter and complete dread. The sound "weirded me out x 1,000", and I could not watch even the 1:08 clip of a World Cup match without going nearly insane. Sometimes, when I wake up from a nightmare, I think I hear some loud noise like a bang or thump. I pray to whatever Higher Power is out there that I do NOT wake up and think I hear the sound of your vuvuzela horns trumpeting at full blast. Seriously. I'll think I've heard a grant total of 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000 wasps.

I am sensitive to sudden loud noises, but I am even more sensitive to THIS noise.

*Shiver, shiver, quiver,*

Another option some are using is tuning into a match on the radio. If the station broadcasting has a decent booth or is doing a remote commentary, the noise of the horns is drowned out considerably or not present at all. Just use that for the commentary whilst watching the TV. I know BBC were looking at a vuvuzela free audio stream in their TV broadcasts(which you could activate by a remote button press) but not sure if anything firm has been decided yet.

Im amazed broadcasters didnt think of that well in advance. Even the US broadcasters should have realised when they were there for the confeds cup last year.

* * *

Anyway, DAY 7 - Looks very interesting The teams that didn't get a win in R1 really need to pull their finger out...

ARGENTINA v KOREA: 2-0
GREECE v NIGERIA: 0-1
FRANCE v MEXICO: 1-2
GERMANY v SERBIA: 2-0

wow@ Greece. Didn't see that one coming! I'm very pleased with my Mexico selection - it's just appalling to see a team with as many talented players as France do so badly because of player/coach issues. Surely it was evident from the Euros - yet they still stuck with Domenech.

Watching the Mexico-France Game Atm and I May say France seem as Rubbish as they Have been in Many Months....I Am Un sure what it is with France they seem to Have Such Great Talent But cant seem to Play Like they did 10 Years Ago or 12

Plus It Looks Like Carlos Vela got a Hamstring Problem But i could be Wrong.

Current Thoughts on World Cup: North Korea = OMG. Talk about Suprising
Spain vs Switz: Lets Hope Cesc Learns something from this. He sat on the Bench Watvhing Xavi and Iniesta Play... Will Barca Be Any Different????
England-USA= If Robert Green Doesnt Play next Game he could never Recover (Like Paul R) But if they Pick Him again he Could make another error or the Other Keepers Will be Annoyed... Plus Heskey cant hit the Great Wall of China from a Meter Away.
:P

Question of the Moment: Well This question has been Going round my School for a While Now and what would happen if the Final was S.Korea vs N.Korea.... My Anwser... S.Korea Nuked if they Win

Well Thats all i got For Now

Greece, I think only won due that idiot deciding to kick an opponent over nothing in the 33rd minute was a good idea. Mexico played well, France I always thought would go out, but I thought they would likely just draw all their games... Domenech, is the worst coach in the competition, and I've never understood why he was in charge... Apparently it was Zidane who actually ran the team when they reached the final in 2006. Messi, I think has been the standout player so far, was great for the Argies yesterday.

DAY 8:
SLOVENIA v USA: 0-2
ENG v ALGERIA: 3-0
GER V SER 2-1

NED v JAPAN: 3-0

Well, Domenech don't even have words after the defeat, even for the players he just said "i don't know what to say" so yes, he's not a very good coach xD

But alse the players, they just can't work together, the French team is like a patch work of players, more than a team, so that's not only the coach fault either.

(Whatever, I just wanted France to loose (for someone living in Paris it could seem strange xD), and that being against Mexico is event Better *_*, And I also win a Bet )

Germany do have a really good team... Got to the final of Euro 08' and the Semi-Finals of WC 06' - They will do well, however how you do against Serbia now, I don't know this referee is a disgrace, I don't think either of Klose's bookings were actually yellow cards...

Klose's fouls were not worthy of yellow cards. What was up with the ref? The number of German fouls he declared were atrocious.

I hope they bounce back with a win against Ghana.

Both his fouls were all from behind, which immediatly qualify as rather grave. Now I don't think the last one was demanded a card but from my understanding the referee did that based on previous, minor infractions he did.

What is surprising is how the red cards are affecting matches' outcomes. This was held true today with Germany and yesterday in Nigeria's game.
