The opening match takes place next Thursday and I've got my World Cup chart ready. I'm looking forward to a footie-fest with lots of close-ups of female Brazilian fans; gratuitous mentions of 1966 and all that; anybody who plays two good games in a row being "linked with a move to the Premiership"; the Italians being "prima-donnas"; the Germans' play being described as "Teutonic efficiency"; any African side being "tactically naive" and , of course, the "Group of Death."

Who are you going to support: Brazil, Spain, England or one of the wee diddy teams?

Who do you think will win?

How long into the opening game will it take the commentator to mention England and 1966?

Look forward to your comments.

I have to agree with Ash, this is the least excited i have ever been for a World cup, i have only just read that the opening ceremony is this coming Thursday, i normally would have had the date it kick's off memorised months before, eagerly counting down the day's until it starts.

All i know about the build up is the protests and riots that have been going on in the cities hosting the games, even yesterday their was clashes between striking railway workers and riot police.

But hopefully all the news will be on the park, i'm not really bothered who wins but i think if not the hosts (i haven't seen enough of them to form an opinion) then Argentina or Germany although no European country has ever won the trophy in the six previous South American World cups, Brasil, Uruguay and Argentina all winning twice (sorry, i'm a football anorak) my tip as a dark horse would be Chile, even though they are in Spain and Holland's group.

Hang on, i'm getting a bit excited now............Roll on Thursday. laugh.gif

Naturally I 'll be supporting Spain, but I don't think they are up to pulling it off twice in a row.

I can't remember the last time i managed that............ ohmy.gif
