too bad so many big players got injured in the days leading up to the WC.
italy is in my first place, they must defend their title, and then netherland in 2nd
So many key international players are getting injured a week before the WC tournament officially gets underway. I feel sorry for Rio. I want to know what REALLY went down between Rio & Hesky.
I'm kinda happy to see a new face in Dawson getting a shot now though. Although, he hasn't impressed me much at club-level, I sure hope he shines for England in the up and coming group matches. ^^
So what do you guys think of the 2010 WC Stadiums? Which ones do you like the look of?
Stadium Link 1
Stadium Link 2
Some of them look impressive but I can't see them being used much AFTER the WC. XD
Group A - 1st set of fixtures will take place next friday. So what do you guys think will be the final scores for the first two games of the 2010 WC?
1) South Africa Vs. Mexico
2) Uruguay Vs. France
Already finished my bracket for the group intervals ^,^
A lot of players are getting injured right before the tournament; it's not a good look.
I'm gonna get working on my predictions and post up asap!
My bet on the opening games;
I'd think it would nice for the home team to win the opening. And I don't have much expectations for France this year, Uruguay might even win. And of course I calculated this based on my choices on the Fantasy Football game.
(Anyone considering joining MH-league on the game? There is still time, but there is still no-one joined, so I just might delete it.)
On another note, I must say I am appalled at something a few apparent football fans here do. WTH is that about calling this beautiful sport SOCCER? The name of the sport is FOOTBALL, for the love of it do not insult it by calling it soccer.

Yeap.. Totally agree, but what can we do? Maradona is like a GOD there in Argentina.. But they have a chance is if he doesnt fu** up.
What a bad news this weekend for Ferdinand, Drogba, and Robben.. 3 more that goes to the list of injured that will miss the cup..
It's really sad, especially since this may be the last chance Drogba and Ferdinand get to represent their country in a World Cup; their both pushing 31-32.
PS: To all football fans, please stop calling the sport "soccer" (yes, I am going to keep at it, it´s just THAT appalling)
I'm sure DanielKnoT didn't say God in reference to maradonismo or Maradoniana Church. Am I wrong, Daniel? (By the way, more than 25 thousand people are maradoniano and, among them, 15 thousand are out of Argentina).
But Maradona is really glorified as hell there. Much more than Pele here in Brazil since a horde brazilians believe that Garrincha was better than him.
It is a great boost, motivation for the team, the players themselves said it. But of course, it isn't enough to win.
Eric Kakou, press agent of Côte d'Ivoire, said that Drogba will play. According to the doctors he won't play the first game against Portugal, but he will be ready against Brazil.

Seems like Robben wasn't cut yet from the cup, right? He must be in the same position as Drogba =b
Predictions for the first round? Lemme see...
South Africa 1x0 Mexico
Uruguai 2x2 France
And i'm getting really worried with Kaka... hope he gets in shape rly soon
I think the fact that they played in different times is a big factor as well, football as a game was different during the 70s and 80s. So Robben and Drogba aren't ruled out yet? Okay, fair enough. Only 3 more days til the first match; I really can't wait!!! Matches nearly everyday for about a month?? Were gonna be so spoiled!!
Spain did well today ... Iniesta and Xavi are just the best midfield in the world.
