Re: 2010 World Cup actual match discussion here (all matches)

Seeing Messi in action was fun today! Argentina should have got few more goals though. Boy Maradona looked all cleaned up, well by his low standards anyway

Come on England! Do some some serious damage today and send the loud mouths home Anything short of 5:0 and I will be disappointed

Nigeria was quite disappointing and did not gave the fighting spirit.
Argentina was OK...but I hope they will show better skills. Suprise of this group is South Korea.

Can't say too much just right now, as I am waiting for my beloved Italy to get moving on Monday.

Don't underestimate the ol'guys just yet

Support Switzerland in the World Cup

I wonder how many on this forum will be supporting Switzerland in the World cup.

One points this out because there are so many people on here that state they should integrate and be patriotic to the country they live in.

So when Switzerland meet up with the UK, USA, Australia, NewZealand, South Africa etc. who will we be supporting?

Switzerland's first game is on Wednesday evening against Spain.
I wonder how many of us will even be watching the game?

Re: Support Switzerland in the World Cup

when it comes to sports now...I support the better player/team. period.
Football, tennis...etc are just entertaining games really ! So I should enjoy it rather than being driven by emotions, patriotism...etc.
I would support Spain against Switzerland because they play better!

patriotic? who said that? what "you" should do is: come here, integrate and stop complaining "back home it is like/we have like/ we dont do/ we would do..." man up or whimp out!

and germany wins the cup. fin.

Re: 2010 World Cup actual match discussion here (all matches)

Fantastic game of the Germans. Bit too harsh with the red card, but hey... they wouldn't have turned the game with or without their superman.

I'll be watching the Swiss-Spain one and actually cheering for the Swiss, however I feel like they'll lose this one miserably. But hey..... you never know.

In the end, it doesn't matter! The ball is round, a game is 90-odd minutes and Germany wins

Simples.

Yes, but the defeat would not have been so crushing and humiliating.

What ifs are stupid, especially in football. If Germany would have made all their chances it would have been 8-0.

You can get 300-1 against Switzerland to be outright winners. Bit of a shame their first game is against Spain.

Exactly. The best team can lose. I took the 300-1 on offer and put €10 on Switzerland because, as you say, anything can happen.

Landesmuseum on saturday night. Full of english fans in replica shirts, flags, even painted heads.

The bars - empty.

The toilets - two.

The fans - silent.

The atmosphere - $h!t.

The number of english - 2. Alright, 3. Maybe.

I got told if I carried on making so much noise, I would be asked to leave.

Ha ha ha.
