    Official World Cup Thread

    Let the countdown begin!!!!

    What team/s are you going to be rooting for?

    In no particular order here is mine.

    Japan, if only they could get some more experienced players. They got potential but what good is that.

    Nigeria and Cameroon, I love how they move the ball. too bad they're made up of individula players and not team oriented. Most african teams struggle with this.

    I don't particularly care for any European teams. I don't want England winning, that's for sure.

    Argentina is supposed to be a shoe in for the finals. We'll see cause anything can happen.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    ENGLAND all the way.

    If we play at our potential we have a great chance of winning, hell we are bursting with great players right now.

    We do have a tough group though.

    Argentina, Sweden and Nigeria are all good teams, Argentina tipped one of the favourates to win!

    We will see, like I said England are so inconsistent but when we do play well, we whoop, so I am hoping they are on form.

    Just sucks the games being on at 7am here

    i dont feel very comfortable in this thread for some reason.


    its like the first time in a shitload of years that holland isn`t playing. its pathetic. we have some of the worlds most expensive players but theyre just spoilt lazy pieces of child molesting **** which are excused for everything and anything and of course the coach gets all the blame.

    It is a shame that holland are not in the finals this time around as they have such a huge amount of talent that most probably would've peaked this year, e.g. Hasselbaink, Davids etc.

    Oh and Forza Italia!!!

    Only those that know about soccer are allowed to contribute to this pointless thread.
    Btw, I resent that comment about Canada.

    England is good, but when did they last win the the world cup, its seems like they cant get up there with italy, france, brazil, argentine...
    I bet the African teams is going to reach far this time, The World Cup is the biggest sporting event ever, it makes the superbowl look like the mini golf tournament over at Joe`s garden.

    england suck! they boast about havin the best soccer league in the world.. theyre lucky to be in the top 5.. its just good 4 the spectators, a 40yr old could score in the premier league thats how crappy their defence is.. (why u think all the top euro players goto england for a few years b4 they retire.. coz its piss easy to score and its good $$, a few years ago cheaslea's startin 11 were all old internationals.. zola etc who struggled to score in siere A, who now see themseves kickin 2-3 goals a game on a regular basis)... thats why they neva go far in world cups, where they see their attackers tightly marked, and havin the opposition run circles around their defence..
    watch out for argentina.. they'll do well.. but bein italian.. im goin for them! forza italia!!
