I don't think he will. He'll look dejected and disappointed losing to the Yanks, but not an ass. He's a big fan and that's cool.

No Socceroos?? Man, you know more Aussie slang than I do...thought we might get an honourable mention. Although, I doubt they have much hope Ian, so it's fair to save your breath for those with half a chance I guess. :-)

I tell you something mate, the "Socceroos" have improved from time to time and with the coaching of the Dutch manager (can't remember his name), they can give hard times to any big team..... Aussies can give a good fight on the pitch!!! I am keeping an eye on the them!

Good on ya, mate.

Yep, that's him, Ian. Oz lost to the US ... I don't fancy our chances against the hotshot teams in our draw.

I don't mind ... I'm not a big sport watcher but I love the first round of the WC. The atmosphere is amazing and you get these fabulous, open games with acrobatic skills ... and the African teams are always a treat to watch (doubly so for women :)

Later on the competition it gets a bit boring for me because the games are so tense, closed-up and there's so much gamesmanship (ie. cheating).

I go for Australia - because Scott Chipperfield is member of our team for many years here in Basel, Switzerland (FC Basel)

I go also for Italy, because they are the best!

I go for Switzerland - my country

I go for Spain - best team by far, that's easy

I go for Argentina, want to see Lionel Messi in the Final

I go for Brasil: clear, that when Brasil participates you only have to puzzle, who is also in the final with them.

If a Dog is born in a stable it doesn't make it a Horse now does it??

Plus you are only 'half Irish' I believe from an earlier post............beat you on that mate, both my Parents are Irish..............I was born in England, does that make me Irish.............err No............can I get an Irish Passport...........err YES

But I have a British Passport

I live in Australia, am I now an Aussie...............err No........

Paint it how you want, born in Canada your Canadian........No doubt your Birth was registered there.......
Agreed Spides. I hate all this nationalistic stuff that has a darker under current. Most typical of those that have travelled little and recant western news agency reporting as the only truth. I was born the product of prostitution, brought up in a docklands orphanage in my early years then finally adopted by the best parents anyone could wish for. I have no knowledge of the nationality/race of my birth parents and couldn't care less. Am I english?

Cheers for the charity offer.

too many people here in ireland think they are hard for supporting celtic because they are "irish!!" who cares who founded it, if people like the football then like the club you know. People should stop being so f***ing patriotic, those are the people who think Ireland becamse a republic in 1916

Please do. Just more reinforcement as to your role in life. Most watched game in the world. which puts you in the minority. But you are use to that. Every thread you start puts you in the minority. But alas you will be banned once again soon and then the civil people will have a decent forum once again. So please, Voice on.

Watching it now. The Argies look sharp. When Nigeria has the ball they pressure them relentlessly. Super-fit and super-skilled. Lionel Messi is amazing. And dare I say it, their goalie is the hottest footballer I've seen since Ronaldo and Kaka in the last WC ... South American football is the best :)

Edit: Bit worried about the Nigerian guy with SHIT TU on his back. There are children in the crowd!

Yes, Polly. We have the vibe, the feeling with ability and nice football/soccer. You like that - Romero - the Argentinian goalie! eh? We are jealous ;-)
