Of Pre-WC Favourites, Potential Champs, Lameass Cockups & The Dunno-cos-have-not-played-yets...

We are about 5th/6th day into the WC...

Not bad, so far so good... overall pretty good matches...

The debutant African teams & Iran played pretty decent football...
Totally enjoyed watching Shaka Hislop and his T&T team repel wave after wave of Swedish meatballs...

But what bout the pre-WC faves?

Pre-WC Favourites:
(big names, super-duper hyped up teams)
Czech Rep

Potential Champs:
(these stylo-milo ovaltines played the beautiful game the way it's supposed to...)
Czech Rep = Damn you, Arsene Wenger!
Argentina = Classy & deadly
Germany = a 4-2 score sans Ballack? Most attack minded German side ever? Best long range shooting so far...
Italy = see Argentina

Lameass Cockups:
(clueless, 1-dimensional football at its best!)
England = Formation? Huh? Wat formation? 4-4-2? 4-1-2-1-2? 4-4-1-1? 4-1-4-1? How do you justify Sven being the most clueless and him being the highest paid manager in the world? 2 for the price of 1?
Holland = Get ball. Pass to Robben. Repeat. Van Basten's tight white short sleeves are so GAY...
Portugal = Yawn

The Dunnno-cos-have-not-played-yets:

WC month is HELL for wrong timezone fans of the beautiful game.
Damn sleepy now...

It doesn't help when a fren call you a recluse for not wanting to meet up for dinner (so that he can intro his GF to you)...

"Some people believe football is a matter of life and death.
I'm very disappointed with that attitude.
I can assure you it is much, much more important than that."
- Bill Shankly (1913 - 1981)
