Poor bloke. It's only a game. Doesn't really change much.

If it's a tie, mrst., points are awarded and goals scored taken into account and that decides the winners and runners up of each group of 4 teams. Then the top 2 in each group play knockout games until there are only 2 left for the final.

I predict Germany 1 Australia 1 today.

Q: Where can I go and buy one of those long horn vuvuzelas,that the South African fans are blowing the whole time in the stands?
I think you have to be in Rustenburg like outside the stadium ground and they are being flogged by street hawkers making a fast buck.

Vuvuzelas. It sounds like a giant swarm of angry bees and detracts from my enjoyment of the games.

Apparently the SA FA is considering a ban on the Vuvezelas after various teams, broadcasters and others have been complaining. It had a novelty value at first but gets pretty tiresome quickly. You miss hearing the fans singing and apparently players and coaches are unable to communicate clearly on the field. If in the end it is upsetting the football they should go shouldn't they?

Kazzz! What do you mean, ONLY A GAME!!! It may be to you my little antipodean bunny but it's life and death in the rest of the world. Even the Aussies and Kiwis are in on the action now, so don't give me any more of this 'only a game' stuff please.

It's becoming a bit more popular here in the States, but hardly life or death. That would be baseball and football !!!!!!!!!!! ...both American sports)

That terrible continuous buzzing noise (like a swarm of giant bees) throughout the matches is driving me mad!
 
Re: World Cup Predictions by suzulu on 13 June 2010 9:27pm
 
I understand they may be vuvuzeles.

Germans are rather good, don't you think? Never liked them though...
