Talking Football World Cup 2010


Will people still like me when England eventually move ahead of the USA in the Football World Cup 2010?


there is a slight undertone that I may have shot myself in the foot here....

Check back in a few hours. We'll see who's moving on then...

No matter what, the U.S. can console itself with the knowledge that it was robbed of a crucial goal by poor officiating.

I have to


agree with Nakamova. However, we'll see what happens. I do happen to know a few of the other, um, UK citizens that are, shall we say........very amenable to what you're saying right now.

Half time:

England have finally woken up! I feel another coming along in second half!

USA playing well too! They deserve a goal. Questionable offside goal not given!
I have a feeling that USA will score second half! Good luck USA!!!

Yes, the


replay SHOWED it was NOT an offsides........so the US was ONCE AGAIN robbed of a goal. Oh well. That's the way it goes. They'll make up for it, I'm sure.

Congratulations to the USA soccer team, no one here in Holland thought they would make it through the first round but they did, amazing, even while two goals were (imo wrongly) rejected... What a surprises this world championship brings (just ask the French...)

Congrats to Brittain too, you'd better beat those Germans in round 2!!!

We might meet along this tournament, who knows, Holland-Great Brittain, Holland-USA?

We play for the honour against Cameroon tomorrow, will the Dutch be group winner or second in the first round? Allthough we didn't perform very well in the first two games against Danmark and Japan, we did beat them both. Tomorrow we'll know who we meet in round 2 next monday: Italy, Paraguay, New Sealand or Slowakia.

The WC Soccer really lives here in Holland, soccer is the most beloved sport here, many streets, houses are orange and people all wear orange clothes with funny gadgets and hats. We're a small country with great international soccer players and 16 miljon very enthousiastic supporters.

Yes good luck to Holland today! What a great team you have.

As for this weekend.. too bad the US will be going out against Ghana. :P Seriously though you've played some great football so far and deserve to be in the last 16. Dempesy and Donovan have been excellent.

And England will defeat Germany! I'll be watching at the pub with my jersey and flag. (I'm second generation English)

Wish I could be home watching the games, but I'm stuck at work.. at least I have the live text commentary from BBC. For anyone at work this is great:

I am happy to face Ghana over Germany but both the US and England have the same issue. What team will show up and when will they show in the match?

My sister-in-law is from Argentina so if the US goes down I have a good back up team to root for.

My team to root against is Brazil.

In the absence of an Irish team in the world cup - thanks, Henry - i am rooting for either Brazil (their flag is very similar too the Northern Ireland Football Association flag) or the cote d'ivorie (A backwards green white and gold lol)

Thumbs up Did it!


Holland-Cameroon 2-1

Makes 9 points out of three matches and brings us as group winner against Slowakia next monday (at 4 pm here, when I'm working... might get a peep on my pc there )

They did so well today, sending world champion Italy home
(Bye bye France, bye bye Italy ) so we may not underestimate Slowakia!

I'm liking how this Cup is shaping up. Lots of small countries and underdogs.
