    its knockout and the winners and 2nd place of the first groupls play pre determined winners and 2nd place teams from other groups.

    Once it gets to the second stage (after the leagues) its like on 2 seperate halfs (i am sure you can imagine the 1/2, semi final, final equation)

    So for some teams it is just impossible to meet in the final. For example we play brazil in the 1/4's. It could never have been a brazil x england final as both teams if they did the best they could do (they did) would meet here so one would be knocked out.

    You're j/k right?

    Right now the best team is England and then comes Spain. (despite the fact that their defense sucks).
    Senegal and S.Korea take good results but they don't perform as good as England or Spain.

    Germany is just lucky.Italy is a boring defensive team.
    Brazil has quality players in the squad but they should have lost to Belgium as well as to Turkey (or at least get a draw) in their first game in the cup.
    Japan is just a good team but not nothing special.

    Oh sh*t I can't believe it! We're out of the World Cup!!! Ahhh!!! I can't believe this sh*t!!! I thought we would come back for sure wtf!!!

    Props to the USA team though they played hard.

    Dang who to root for now? Brasil maybe England maybe USA maybe.

    Anyways I'm pissed off.
    "In the grand scheme of things, both things are quite superficial(obsessed with being muscular&ripped and incredibly strong). And yet lifting can teach you so much. My time at the gym--at least when I'm lifting--is invariably the high-point of my day. There aren't any questions; I almost don't even think. I go into an almost meditative trance-like state. Day-to-day worries become insignificant. I'm focused solely on the weight, and my reason for existence is clear. To move the bar and to improve on what I accomplished last time. Seldom are things so simple." - Blood&Iron

    "Most people cannot understand what burns in our blood, the gym is our addiction and iron is our drug. People don't understand why we commit hours a day to a goal where progress is so small it seems immeasurable, why we do cardio instead of watch TV, why eat 6 meals a day, why we insist on ordering diet soda or how we can drink skim milk. Most people will simply never grasp why we refuse to settle for a mediocre body." - Severed Ties

    Japan are out. Turkey go thru to the Quarters.

    Brazil have great strikers and flare. Their defence is weak, and ours is solid.

    Should be a good game. Hope it doesn't go to penaltys.

    I get your point ........ I mean some of our sports are represented by Great Britain.

    The bottom line with the football is ....... it's an old tradition and no one would want it broken. Especially the fans of thoses teams. I mean ..... the welsh team would only be able to give us one decent player (Giggs). and alot of players would be stuggling for a place. They might as welll just call the team England anyway.

    The Italy/korea match is great.

    Korea equalised in the 88th minute after pannucci totally arsed up. The Italian defence has been so strong too. They really shouldn't sit back on a one goal lead.

    ET starts soon.

    Muwhahahaha....

    I never really liked Italians anyway.

    Korea are definately a force to be reckoned with!

    This cup is England's for the taking.

    The world cup belongs to Italy.

    Probably because all the extra time playing taking it's toll on France.

    I only think England will get that far because i think Keiron Dyer will be fit and playing.

    Do they have the venue for the next world cup picked yet? Does it alternate between continents? Just wondering because the major difference in time zones has really pretty much made this world cup unenjoyable for me.

    I thought that this world cup would be a bit of a transition, as it seems many of the older players are playing their final WC and there are quite a few young talents itching to get on the field.
