    With the World Cup kicking off in less than a month, I'm beginning to get really excited. Surely I'm not the only one?

    Who do you think will do well, who do you think won't? Who will you be supporting?

    Not of winning the whole thing, but I think you'll finish runner-up in group C (behind England) and advance to the last 16, where you'll play the winners of group D. Which will most likely be Germany... sorry :lol:

    Probably, but not necessarily. Germany may slip up and the group stage and Australia or Ghana could end up winning group D... Not that I'd want that to happen though, England don't want to be playing Germany until the final ;)

    I really enjoy the world cup. Its the only bit of footy I can stand. I used to support Ireland through this whole ordeal. And it just pisses me off that they didn't end up in there. I heard it had something to do with France getting in because of a goal, that actually shouldn't have been counted? It just sounds like bollocks, I might be wrong. Fuck the French.

    We've only ever played you once in a World Cup final, and we won :loco:

    Seriously though, Germany are one of my favourites.

    Yeah, basically Ireland were denied a place in the World Cup by losing against France and the goal was set up by a handball.

    If I am being honest

    I think England has a very good chance even though I don't want them to, the media would be insufferable, it will be even worse than they already have been, I mean it's already started with the adverts and it making me sick, Don't get me wrong, I Love England as a country and the people but I really do hate the fuckin English fitba team and the media, I always hope that England will get knocked out in the group stages so I don't have to bear the "England this and England that every fuckin 2 seconds"

    Why laugh. A Dutch trainer almost owned you a few years back with South-Korea. You're going down this year. :heh:

    Oh and that as well

    The English media are so xenophobic is sickening, If I was English I would feel ashamed at some of the stuff they print

    Thank goodness I will be out of the Country and I will escape this

    Greece have one hellish group to escape from

    Argentina, Nigeria and South Korea, this is one bloody tough group

    Yeah 'almost'. South-Korea wasn't exactly a team that often wins, and it almost beat the oh so 'mighty-always-seem-to-be-scoring-at-the-last-minute' Germany :lol:
