    Re: 2010 FIFA World Cup

    Ah, finally the greatest sport event in the world is about to start.... Can't wait, I honestly have been counting the seconds since the germany cup ended lol....

    Personally, I want italy to win although I do feel there are a couple other teams who have an honestly better shot. IMHO brazil will be reasonably dangerous. Argentina should be a decent contestant this year but as long as they have maradona as a coach they won't have it in them to even be a 0 to the left. Argentina simply won't work, its that simple.

    @destiny, no worries. I'd created such a thread myself soon anyways. We had it stickied 2006 and 2008 too.

    Germany is already down several players, including our captain, due to training injuries. Just yesterday another one was injured. So I wouldn't bet on a top score but I expect the quarter finals nonetheless.

    Re: 2010 FIFA World Cup

    I thought I was active here, planned to make a thread like this, and there's already one.... with two pages of post.... *doh

    Anyway, to put it short, I'd top seed Netherlands, Spain, Brazil and Portugal for their insane offense.

    I'd put Germany here but since they have, as eni said, a lot of injured players, I doubt they'll reach the top four. But, it will be a really interesting tourney from that PoV too because now we'll see some new players and hopefully they've put together a young hungry team who dares to play "entertainin" soccer. Like some of the Icehockey teams (Swe, Can, Swi) in the WC some weeks ago.

    I'd put Argentina here too but since Maradona is a r*tard and doesn't know how to put together a team, nor how to coach it, I'm afraid it'll be a fiasco.

    Where's the defence? Oh, he didn't "like" their best national defenders, so yeah, put in some volatile defenders and hope for the best ;pPpPppPPPp

    ....

    Gawd, someone please give him the foot after the WC, Argentina is WAY too good for him...

    Ooh, and Nigeria for sure, go go svennis go \o/... no?..

    Re: 2010 FIFA World Cup

    Since this is the first worldcup to be held in Africa, I highly expect at least one of the african teams to shine. South Africa themselves as hosts might be carried along, but I wouldn't bet on it. Algeria is next on my list, but they hardly have a chance, just like Ghana (they are up against Germany ;P and one of their players injured 'our' captain *rages*).
    Cameroon, Nigeria and Côte d'Ivoire are the ones I hope to enter round of 16 / quarter finals =3 (aside from the usual european teams <.<

    Also don't forget to get you Vuvuzela in time, it needs some practising before you can do it

    Re: 2010 FIFA World Cup

    If I had to bet, I'd say that the Netherlands, Italy, Brazil or Spain have got what it takes to win the World Cup. Even though it would be certainly wicked, I doubt that Germany will come very far; too many good players are injured. I'm not talking about Ballack, though. Imo, he's a bit overrated.

    That could very well happen, yes.

    IF Maradona coach Argentina like he should, they should be in the Final with Spain..

    These teams are the most balanced in Offense and Deffense.. And Argentina of course have Messi... This world cup should be for him to shows why is he considered the best player right now..!

    He already did in the Euro Champions, Spain League, Copa del Rey, etc, etc..

    Re: 2010 FIFA World Cup

    Let's go U.S.A. !!!!! Though we haven't looked too good as of late. One last friendly against Australia and then England. I'll be looking forward to it. If we don't make it out of group play I'll be pissed and anything past round of 16 is gravy.

    Since I know the U.S. isn't going to win , I'll also be going for England (minus the first game ) and Italy (in that order).

    I have full expectations for Ivoire.
    I really like its squad.

    I don't see that balance in offense and deffense in Argentina squad.
    Even here, in Brazil, it's a common sense that current Argentina's defense is very, very awful.
    But it's Argentina, I know we shouldn't underestimate my beloved rival.

    Re: 2010 FIFA World Cup

    If any african team are to shine, then my money would be on Ivory Coast; they have the best group of individual players it's now just a matter of whether or not Sven can get them to gel together in time for the tornament.

    I can't believe Walcott was left out the England team to SA!!! damn you Capello! but I think he has his reasons and as long as it pays off, I won't hold a grudge.

    Re: 2010 FIFA World Cup

    I highly doubt that Sven can do anything out of the ordinary with that team, not enough time and his play style is way different from Ivory Coast's, but we'll never know, he's surprised me before, might do it again.

    Also, South Africa will be a country worth counting while on the subject of African teams, I saw their team play feb last year when I was in RSA and even though it was over a year ago, they looked as well put together as they could and given another year on that I'd say they will be rather dangerous to underestimate because if they don't have the skill, they sure have the teamwork, interplay and morale.

    Oh, and to emphasize on what Pirulitokun wrote - Indeed, Argentina's defence is in no way on par with their offence and they will be a very fragile team and I doubt their changeovers are brilliant either from att to def.

    Argentina COULD have a really good defence, but somehow, their top players aren't in the squad...

    Re: 2010 FIFA World Cup

    The best laid plans of mice and men...Robben injured, Drogba injured, Ferdinand injured, Obi Mikel injured, Pirlo injured. And that too Ballack, Essien and the other players who are already out. Its a real shame for such quality players to be out. I also noticed the majority i named are chelsea players.

    I think his biggest omission is Banega as a backup for Veron. If the old man gets injured, Banega would have been a perfect replacement especially at the back of an amazing season.
