Yeah it is. All the wrestlers are going to South Africa for a safari where they'll observe elephants fighting each other and will get valuable knowledge... -________________-

That is rather selfish. I guess I'll have to wait it out for a football nerd to come through.

That was not selfish! Or..well I guess it was. But she jokes around with you like there is not tomorrow! It gets annoying! And she is more annoying than me!! But find if you want her to come, then fine. Thank you for destroying my happy place. Sad

Though I still dont see what that big deal is about soccer...

*laughs* Alright, alright its your choice. If she bugs you so much then its understandable if you don't want her on.

Hmm? Its just an interest of some people is it not? All people cannot have the same interests can they? It would be terribly boring...Razz

Oooh me? Well I like four or five players best. Kaka, Ronaldinho (who sadly isn't going to feature. Damn Dunga!), Steven Gerrard, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Fernando Torres. I have no problem supporting all their teams. Right now though, I'm going to stick with Brazil and Spain. I have some doubts about Brazil. They are now depending too much on their defense and on Kaka to make counter-attacks.

Hah, so your friend likes him Cristiano Ronaldo does she? Too bad. Don't think we would have got along very well. I dislike him. He has got incredible talent, yes, but he is too... vain. Too selfish. Not honest kind of player. He'll play dirty if his looses his temper. A player who has got so much talent at his disposal should not have the need to play dirty, but he does. I prefer Deco from the Portuguese team. He is much more a team player. He's their playmaker me thinks. Orchestrates all their attacks. Beautiful passer. Oh well, sorry for ranting this long...

Aah too bad. New Zealand has got a decent chance methinks. They are in a group which features Italy (which is not the same team that was there four years ago), Paraguay (which is alright), and Slovakia. If they play as a team, they have got capability to win against all three of these teams which are not doing too well. There is a good possibility they might finish second in the group and go into the next round.

Hah, yeah you would support them. They are good mind you. Got some talented players in their squad like Tim Cahill, Mark Schwarzer, Harry Kewell. They should go through in the second round.

Yup. The starting match was decent. Both both matches yesterday were draws. Today there have been two wins. South Korea won against Greece and Argentina won against Nigeria. Messi was Awesome !

Yeah they are. Haven't seen them in action though. Their match is on the 14th. Against Slovakia. They should be able to win it...

Well, we'll see that tomorrow. Yesterday was England vs USA. The best match of the tournament so far I think. Both sides are good. It ended in a 1-1 draw but there were something like 30 chances for goal.

I was supporting England since Stevie G is there (and he scored an Awesome goal too ^_^ ), but it was disappointing to watch them. After Gerrard's goal which came on the fourth minute (and which was purely down to his quality, and the assist that was provided to him), USA were the better side in the first half. England were all over the place. There was no formation. No discipline. Lampard looked lost most of the times, Milner was unimaginative, there were playing as a bunch of players who have never played with each other before.

USA played much more like a team. Unfortunately, they've got only handful of decent players, or they could have easily won. They were able to equalize on the 40th minute through a unbelievable mistake on the English goal keeper's part, but they deserved it.

In the second half England seemed to play more as a unit, but they just weren't able to convert chances. Rooney didn't feature at all. Heskey missed a couple of good ones, but USA were able to hold England down, and were able to manage a few decent attacks of their own.

Overall, if England are to have any good chance in this WC, they've got miles to improve from where they were yesterday it seems to meh...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Edit 14/06/10

*sighs* No one posted so I'm going to have to edit the same post. Watched Germany vs Australia last night and it was AWESOME! No other words for it. Germany were UNBELIEVABLY good. After having watched France, Argentina and England, I must say the Germans are the ones who look like they mean business, and if they continue playing like they played last night, they are going to be one of the strongest contenders for the World Cup.

They were simply too good for Australia. The passing was top quality, but unlike the Spanish, who just pass the ball around and stack up the possession time, the Germans were actually making something of their passing and possession and attacking at every opportunity they got. Their attacking midfielders and forwards were breaking Australian defense apart with perfectly timed runs and stunning through balls. I think among all the teams that I've watched in the world cup till now, the Germans have the best attack.

Defensively though, even if Mertersacker and Friedrich were pretty decent and Neuer was good in the goal, they do not seem to be very strong, which could be a problem.

But they play as if they had played with each other for years. Very disciplined. everyone knows their job and was doing it well. There was no weak link for Australians to exploit. Definitely the team to watch out for in the next rounds, and I won't be surprised if they went all the way through, playing like this...
