    2010 FIFA World Cup

    To the mods, I apologize in advance if creating this thread goes against the rules since there’s already a soccer thread; it’s just that it’s the World Cup so I thought it would be cool if it had its own thread. Please delete this tread if it breaks the rules.

    It seemed so far away four years ago but finally the Cup is just around the corner...

    As a soccer fan, I’m really looking forward to the World Cup. It’s always so fun and exciting to watch the best of the best playing and working hard to win the coveted title of World Champion. So here’s a thread to discuss everything regarding the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

    Let’s start the topic with this question:

    What team or teams are you going to be rooting for?

    I’m going to be rooting for Brazil, as I always do in every World Cup. I really want them to win this time.

    Other teams I will be rooting for but not as much as for Brazil are Italy and Spain.

    But what about you guys? Which ones are your teams?

    Please don't merge this thread, Blai/Charlie-San.
    This WC is very special and it deserves it's own thread dammit.


    Hey Destiny!

    It would be cool if you could edit your post and add this information:

    Spoiler show


    I can't wait to see the Group G matches.
    North Korea are going to go home very early imo.

    Re: 2010 FIFA World Cup

    I dont think it will be merged, there was a separate one for the euro's. =/
    Anyway I'll be supporting England. Anything past the QF's is an achievement as far as im concerned.

    My pick for favourites is Spain then Brazil. Everyone else has major issues that need sorting out before the tournament begins.

    Re: 2010 FIFA World Cup

    I'm really looking forwards the cup too. My bets (and hopes) are on Spain, and after them Brazil and Netherlands. Ivory Coast might be a wild card, at least Drogba has a high chance of being the goal king, though the team is in a tight spot with Brazil and Portugal in the same group.

    Argentina is strong too, but I think the biggest obstacle between them and the championship is Maradona. He ain't really a impressive coach.

    I'm really hoping England can do something big in this year's tournament, if not then I'd like to see Spain win it. You can bet Germany will be there or thereabouts the latter stages, they are true specialists.

    We don't have such stars like in 2006 (It's unbelievable we lost back then), but this year WC is ours.
    Don't let me cry again, Brazil! Bring me the sixth star!

    But I admit, I'm afraid of Holland and Spain.

    Re: 2010 FIFA World Cup

    Ok here are some of my random thoughts/bets for this coming WC...
    I say at some point in the tournament:

    England will face Argetina .
    Brazil will face Italy.
    Robben will be carried off of the field with a broken leg.
    Terry will get booed and Beckham will start crying....

    Am following for these teams..

    - Portugal -> Cristiano Ronaldo
    - Argentina -> Messi
    - Spain -> Euro Champioms..

    Too bad for Ronaldinho, Francesco Totti, Michael Ballack, will not be in the world cup....

    Re: 2010 FIFA World Cup

    It's obvious Brasil'll win, reason:
    94-Champions
    98-Lost to France
    02-Champions
    06-Lost to France
    The only bad thing about this pattern is that it means we won't win the cup at home

    But seriously, if I had to bet money it'd be on Netherlands or England

    Re: 2010 FIFA World Cup

    Come on what's with the Brasil fixation... I think the European teams are very strong this year.

    Favourite: Spain (sorry Brasil but Spain has the best team of the world and brings the best football of the world since years now)

    Brasil, Italy, Netherlands and Germany will do pretty good too because they have always been good tournament players

    I consider England as the biggest outsider. Pretty solid team with a very good coach who knows what realistic football play means
    The biggest virtue is to support these Seven Deadly Sins in their fight!!!

    I wouldn't put Holland as a tournament team. There is always something that derails their chances. But i agree about the others, even when they are bad they go far. Which is especially true of Germany. Even now, individually they are not good, in fact i would say that they only one of their players can be considered world class. So you can expect them to win the damn thing.

    Re: 2010 FIFA World Cup

    If you guys are interested, I created a MH-league to McDonadl's FIFA World Cup Fantasy. It's game where you create your fantasy team of all the World Cup players, and each round you get points depending on how well your players did in the actual matches. You need to crate an account to play. You can start choosing players starting from 4th.

    After you have the account go to "My leagues" and the code of the league. Here is the code for Mangahelpers league; 288477-71304.
