    2018 world cup bid

    I dont know, but I think 80% of them will be built, considering their ambitious projects. We're talking about 3 billion dollars of investment in new stadia, so I suppose most of them are being built for the WC. And to tell you the truth, taking a look at their projects, the stadiums are going...

    2018 world cup bid

    Knowing FIFA, there's no chance Qatar will change it's rules regarding beer for WC 2022, unless they want to. FIFA didnt prohibit vuvuzelas saying it was a traditional thing. Well, anti-drinking policies in Qatar too...

    2010 FIFA World Cup 3rd Place Game: Uruguay v. Germany [P/R]

    I'm quite sure any Man Utd here would easily accept him back. Best player of the tournament up to now. Let's see what Sneijder and Villa are preparing for us.

    2010 FIFA World Cup 3rd Place Game: Uruguay v. Germany [P/R]

    Seriously hope he doesnt. It's all nice to see records being broken, but I hope this one remains intact.

    2014 FIFA World Cup Logo

    Well, the 2014 FIFA World Cup logo has been unveiled today. It's abysmal.

    Leo to Brazil

    The fact his coach was an arsehole doesnt mean he was right in quitting the NT. The Seleção can't go back in time, neither can Milan. If both could, i'm sure they would. This WC also proved that the unexperienced managers get toasted big time when in face of defeat. You seriously think...

    Leo to Brazil

    There are a couple of differences here, mate. When both were players, Dunga was the captain of 1994 and showed verve, passion, and whatever other qualities needed to steer the team forward in order to conquer the World Cup. Leonardo elbowed his way out of the finals. When told, three years...

    Leo to Brazil

    Palmeiras already said they would share their manager if needed. From the names we've got on offer (Mano Menezes, Muricy Ramalho, Vanderlei Luxemburgo, Ricardo Gomes, Leonardo and Scolari), I would prefer Scolari. If that's not possible, Ricardo Gomes would be my choice. He's doing a good job at...

    Leo to Brazil

    How anyone considers Leonardo a good choice for the NT helm is beyond me. It would be the same mistake as appointing Dunga - putting an inexperienced guy who would learn to be a coach whilst in charge. The only difference is that Leo is more polite, elegant and "loveable" than his much maligned...

    Brazil: COLOSSAL disappointment

    Spain are showing the same problems we did when facing defensive opposition. There are some stuff they dont have in common with us, a "brucutu" for instance (emmer will get this, but for our english/european/whatever folks, we use that word to define a tough defensive mid, known for his...

    WC 2010 [Stubborn] Managers Watch -- compromising the World Cup experience!

    The final phase in the World Cup proved something no-one is taking into account. Take Brazil and Argentina. Both their managers are ex-players, and they never managed a team on club level, or in the World Cup for that matter. Anyway, they are NOT managers. Dunga had a experience of four years...

    WC 2010 QF: Uruguay vs Ghana [P + R]

    That's a good point too. Suarez's moment was more hectic than Henry's though. Much more. And that's why I dont blame the guy.

    Brazil: COLOSSAL disappointment

    I have to partly agree here. His tactics are quite decent, this team has managed to ally a lil bit of samba, whilst not forgetting defensive awareness and relying on deadly counter-attacking football. For four years until this Holland match, Brazil were the most successful team on the world...

    WC 2010 QF: Uruguay vs Ghana [P + R]

    Well, they have done the same thing, indeed: handballing. Henry tried to trick the referee though, as he did it in a subtle way, whilst Suarez looked like a volleyball player out there, almost punching the ball out of pure desperation. In both cases, their team was going to be eliminated...

    WC 2010 QF: Uruguay vs Ghana [P + R]

    Suarez cant be compared to Henry. Henry truly tried to trick the referee, and he did it. Suarez, on the other hand, did a handball in order to prevent certain elimination in the quarter-finals of a World Cup, and he knew the referee would see it, as he did it blatantly. He took one for the team...

    Brazil: COLOSSAL disappointment

    Well, I enjoyed seeing Argentina go down like that. Got a bit sad for Messi, but all I want is a repeat of the 1974 final, with the Dutch winning. Gotta love those "fairy tales" and "revenges" on football.

    England related poll (Three exclamation points). [R included]

    Over-reliance in the so-called English world beaters, who in the matter of fact are nothing short of decent at best playing in international level - aka Lennon, Barry, Milner, Upson, Johnson.

    Empty Seats

    I think Japan-Korea did this in 2002. Anyway, to say the crowd average is just second best to 1994 is a joke. We get news practically everyday that matches are being played in front of 30k crowds or something like that, so it's hard to believe that kind of information from Jerome Valcke. USA...
