Can't believe that no one has made this already!

With the World Cup only a week away, the 23 players have been chosen (with many surprises i.e. no bezema, ronaldinho!) and the picks are in! And to make this very interesting for some, England and the US will play in the first game! I know who i am picking!! wink

And also I think for the finals it will be Italy and Spain, with Spain the champion! But we will see....

I'm looking forward to Brazil - Portugal as well smile The Netherlands is in a pretty lame group, but I really hope they can go the distance this time around, they showed lots of promise during the Euro!

I've got $15 on England in the US game with my grandpa. I always antagonize American soccer. I got into soccer in Europe, and Europe just does it right, nothing against my country. I even respect the core American fans, it's getting better for sure, but it just will never be the same. Germany is my favorite national soccer team, but I love Netherlands and England as well.

Shame Beckham's injured, he would have been the man with the most world cups. unsure

Eh?


I'm in no way a football person, but I do occasionally enjoy the World Cup, if only because it makes a vague kind of sense as to who I should be supporting. All the other versions of football, when it's random teams made up of players from all over the place, seem completely arbitrary.

The World Cup, however, gives me an obvious team to support - England. Not because I'm in the slightest bit patriotic, but just because I happen to live here. smile

Didn't know we were playing against the US first, that should be amusing!

Being an American and (more-notably) a Texan I have little to no interest in soccer, and it rarely reaches any sort of public sphere on prevalence in any of the multiple areas I live- so I also know very little about it as well.

My blindingly silly pride, culture, and worldly-ignorance even allows me to simply say "huh, is that thing still going on these days?"

Honestly, I have no idea what the World Cup even is. But woe is Texas. Finally I get to pull the brit response to the Superbowl the past few years and say: "I've not an idea why you keep up with that, and don't care at all, but have fun watching!"

Unlike the "World Series", the world actually participates in the World Cup. Some people take it too seriously, but it can be a bit of fun, and a chance to play out old wars on the pitch smile England fans don't care if they win the cup, as long as they beat Germany and Argentina...

England v USA - outght to be an easy England win, but you never know. If the USA gets behind football, they could be really very good.

This is England we're talking about remember a team that can astonish and beat the best the world can throw at them then they struggle against the smaller countries.

England recently have had one of, if not, the best individuals in the world. However, as far as teamwork goes they are severly lacking e.g. the Gerrard, Lampard issue (being a Liverpool fan I vastly improve Gerrard). Nonetheless if they gel together at the right time - sadly Our captain, Rio Ferdinand has been injured, - then we have a big chance (if our big players e.g. Rooney) perform up to their high expectation.

Regarding the game vs. USA they have a few dangerous players. e.g. demarcus beasley (who was rumoured to come to us a few seasons back) and obviously Donovan and Howard who are world class.

I think what makes England fans so frustrated is that they're consistently one of the greatest teams in the world, just rarely *THE* best, always missing out by an unlucky judgement here, or poor penalty there. Penalty shootouts may as well be replaced with a singing competition, they're such a lottery. Maybe this time? The country could certainly use the moral boost...

Well, no luck for you there, RodyPolis. And you only drew because of a dumb mistake; we were still the stronger, more aggressive team (18 shots vs your 12). We had plenty of chances, though really we should've finished more of them, tbh. Not sure why Crouch wasn't on the starting line up, he's got one of the best goal records on our squad.

One final thought - "It not that easy being Green"....

I rolled my eyes when he made that shot thinking there is no way it'd go in...and then it did smile

It was no question that England was the stronger team, but at the end of the day the scoreboard is all that matters.

I can already tell England and US will be the 2 teams out of that group to move on.

North Korea was fascinating. All of their fans in the stands were paid Chinese actors. Can't believe they got a goal off on Brazil. You know that goal will be on loop on every channel in North Korea for a while.

I can not believe Spain lost to Switzerland. No offense to the Swiss, but this is the team that walked off the pitch a half hour into a game in the 08 Euro, they should not have won. Granted that one shot off the post by Derdiyok ( I think thats how you spell it ) would have been a nice second goal after that run. It's even worse than the Brits drawing with the States, America you lucky bastards.

That's decent, but obviously you haven't seen this one. Because it is great.

Michael C. Hall. Cars. America. That beats out Beckham and SW for my money. wink

(Also, I found the Adidas ad completely scareshot and aimless. Sort of like- 'look at the odd collection of stars we got to be in this! we couldn't really figure out how they all fit together, but we also got the rights to star wars, so that's cool!'. But maybe that's just me.)

Hehe, that Freedom/Cars ad is marketing gold. I like it.

In terms of remakes of old classics, this has got to be my favourite ad. The fact that I think the music in it is mind-meltingly awesome probably has a lot to do with it. smile

Pooky - I forgot about that ad! Great stuff. Very respectful of the original, too.

The Dodge one I imagine plays a lot better in America. It just seems a bit random otherwise. smile

Not too impressed by the Adidas ad - amazing compositing, absolutely, but the ad itself felt strangely paced and a little scattershot. Particularly Noel/Liam Gallagher sitting around in the background.

All of these - in fact, all adverts ever - pale into insignificance compared to the Nike World Cup advert, of course.

Maybe try watching it with a daft grin on your face, a Bruce Springsteen on the stereo and chanting "U-S-A!" over and over at the top of your lungs.

It would have been more accurate if the cars had roared over the hill, bottomed out on the rocky terrain, ripped their wheels off and sputtered to a halt. A metaphor to shot that no matter how amazing your tech is, it doesn't mean anything if you don't understand the location.

Then it'd be far more accurate to recent US wars. razz It'd probably also be more accurate to why the English lost the war with the fledgling US, as well!

I'd quite like to see the English version of that advert though. It'd have to be a Rover 400 repeatedly running over people representing all of the former colonies and then stealing all of their things. Obviously it couldn't be shot on a Sunday when washing the car seems to become the nation's favourite passtime. Especially for the sort of people that own Rover 400s.

There now I've made sweeping generalisations about the U.S and my own country so there's no need for Texas to declare war on me.

The Dodge ad is most genius because of how unapologetically and casually matter-of-fact it is in Michael C. Hall's delivery of the words. "Cars......and freedom."

Obviously America has/does not make the best cars, but the assertion by Dodge- a generally successful and more 'problem-free' auto company than many others- makes it both funny and partly true.

And it's George Washington driving a Challenger. I mean, come on. That's gold right there. biggrin

Argh... Mexico destroyed France. I like both teams but I root for my heritage. I really think Zidane made the French team what they were. He was an amazing captain. Without him the French just look kind of lost on the field. unsure

They're going to have to really rethink the way play if they want to stand any chance against South Africa on Tuesday.

I am excited to see the U.S. game tomorrow. For the first time I feel like they won't do so bad this year. I've always wanted the U.S. to do well in the world cup because maybe it will finally give football (you know which one I'm talking about) the recognition it deserves in the states.

Has anyone noticed how awful the officiating is? I've counted a ton of mistakes by the referees, but none bigger than the one that just happened. They appeared to call offside on the USA, disallowing their third (and would be game-winning) goal. Not only were they clearly not offside, they were actually fouled right in front of the goal. It just continues the recent trend of terrible officiating in all sports... not only the in the World cup, but especially in baseball and even more especially the NBA Finals. It's time they put instant replay to it's fullest, unlimited use in all sports.

Yeah, it's odd that they don't use tech more. Tennis, for example, uses a lot of tech to check the umpire's decisions - both the umpire and the players can request a camera replay check to confirm what happened.

Still, nicely done USA! There's been quite a few unexpected results so far, it would seem.

It's a shame South Korea is out, though. I had (possibly slightly unrealistic) hopes for a South Korea vs North Korea final.

Edit: Having said that, I thought the refereeing in the first few games was actually rather good.

Exactly. As a big US soccer fan I was so pissed. Stupid ref can't ref right. They really do need instant replay now. Not in every little thing like Football does it, but in major situations like this the team should have the right to ask for a replay.

I figured by now the players would have chips in their boots and, the ball would have a chip in it, then some detection system would know exactly when the ball was kicked and where the attackers are on the pitch in relation to the defenders. And for crossing the goal line, out of bounds, whose shoe it went off of, etc. Then the ref could just be receiving this information, and he would make foul calls, and call the chips couldn't cover.

I know they at least tested the chips for crossing the goal line in the Euro Cup or something.

Anyways, can't believe Germans lost today.

I'd imagine biased refereeing is a very profitable venture, though. I don't see any other reason why they would be so stubborn.

I like the idea of detectors inside the shoes. Ideally, if somebody fouled it would automatically explode the shoe.

Of course I'm happy USA advanced... but I'm furious with the officiating. This makes two straight games where they have disallowed a USA goal for no reason. This time, the referees nearly cost them the game, as they didn't score again until the 91st minute. They should really use replay, or some form of technology to check the offside calls.

a) I didn't know you could get animated JPEGs.

b) Aren't those two players on the same team?

c) That's hilarious.

EDIT: Nooooo!!! It's a gif with the wrong file extension, the browser is being tolerant but try opening it in irfanview and it tells you what's going on...

Heh, how bizarre. Interesting (and actually slightly worrying) that browsers will open a file even if it has the wrong extension. Seems like something that could be used to trick people into viewing content they weren't expecting.

Innocuous in this case, but still.

God, this is an awful sports day for me. USA loses, and my beloved Red Sox are dropping like flies. Just today alone, we lost our best two players. Why oh why? sad

Two things to take away from that match:

1) The world cup needs video referees / goal-line technology
2) Fire Fabio

... That is all

Sadly we were out-played, and were too slow to react when we gave away posession. Lucky the disallowed goal was academic in the end, or there would have been bloodshed...

FIFA to censor in-stadium replays

It is a conspiracy.
