I'm going to follow this closely this year.

I'm interested. I've learned the rules and even bought the 360 game ( I'm dominating my kids).

It's usually hard for me to get excited about a sport that the US doesn't do that well in, but can 3 billion people be wrong?

I'm pulling for the US, of coarse, but I think Spain after that. I don't normally pull for the favorites, but what the hell.

Anyone else interested?

I'm watching every game.

yes, they can.

I'll be watching it...a lot
Posted: Jun 1, 2010 10:03 pm
 
Any of you guys got any insights? This will be the first time I've really paid attention.
Any classic rivalrys?
What players or teams are really worth watching?
Any underdogs that have a really good chance to shake things up?

The Netherlands always play the greatest games but they always fuck it up in the half or even the quarter finals. Yesterday they beat Ghana, a finalist of the African Cup, with 4-1 in a friendly match.

Netherlands are looking GREAT!! Can't wait to watch them!! I think they'll go far this year.

I always root for the African teams, and this year they're finally playing on their own continent.

Go Black Stars!

Why do Dutch players change the spellings of their names when they play in places like England? You know, like Dirk Kuijt changed to Kuyt.
Posted: Jun 2, 2010 4:30 pm
 
Dunno, do they only change the "ij" like in van Nistelrooij / van Nistelrooy? I guess it makes it easier for English speakers to pronounce the names. In Dutch the "ij" and "Y" are kind of interchangable.

Any classic rivalrys?

England/Germany and Argentina/Brazil are both incredible rivalries.

I'm really pulling for the Netherlands or an African country (hopefully, the Green Eagles!) to win their first World Cup. It's their time.

I will be sick if Italy, Germany or Brazil win it.

I'll be thrilled if the US makes it to the semis or beyond, but I don't see that happening. Honestly, the US is sometimes a little tough to cheer for. It's slowly changing, but our national side has been made up of spoiled, overprivileged types. Granted, most other countries' teams are made up of millionaires, but most of them went from ashy to classy. A lot of our guys have been silver spoon kids (think: opposite of the NBA), especially some of our past teams. Soccer is starting to become a more universal game, so I think that's changing.

The US also rarely plays very exciting, flowing soccer like the Netherlands, (sometimes) France, Brazil or some of the African countries. Despite all that, I'll still be screaming at the television during all of their games.

As for first-round matchups, I'm really looking forward to the Argentina/Nigeria game and the US/England game. The Argentina/Nigeria game should be a speedy, attacking game. The US/England game should make up for a lack of exciting soccer with intensity, especially on the US side. The Netherlands/Cameroon and France/Mexico games have potential too.

9 more days!

That must be it - Cruyff/Cruijff. I remember an interview with Dirk Kuyt after he signed for Liverpool where he described two completely different ways of pronouncing it and he didn't seem to care which way people pronounced it even though one was right and one was horribly wrong.

Our best athletes (in general) are not playing soccer. Lebron would make a pretty killer striker. Kobe can probably play (his part in the Nike ad is funny), but why play soccer when you can make bank in basketball?

Nothing for Spain, Trip? They are going to be very, very good.

Yeah, they have so much talent. Spain are such underachievers in big games in the World Cup, though. I just have a hard time seeing them breaking that. Maybe other than baseball, I think soccer is probably the sport most tied to history. International teams almost always seem so bound/weighed down by their historical roles (England=massively high expectations, huge disappointment, Netherlands= beautiful play, then let down against a lesser team, Italy= negative play and look like shit early, then win the whole thing...).

Spain started the group stage like gangbusters in 2006 and I really thought they had a good shot at winning. Then, they crashed out in the knockout stage. I think this year's squad may be one of their best teams ever with a pretty great mix of veterans and young guys, so they may do it. It will be interesting to see how they respond to the pressure of being the favorites.

Don't forget their Euro 2008 win. To a certain extent that got the underachievement monkey off their back. I'd be very surprised if they didn't make it at least to the semi-finals.

It might be a historic tournament, won by South Africa, with the help of Beckverbouwer/ Pelelele/ Mandela, with cheers from Tutu:
jippy! jippy! jippy!


South Africa will be lucky not to lose all three of their group matches.

Looks like Drogba might be out with a fractured elbow now. That's probably going to change the odds on Portugal getting out of the group stages. I hate Ronaldo, although I get great pleasure watching him cry when he loses.

Apparently, he's undergoing emergency surgery in an effort to be able to take part. Watch this space...

England captain, Rio Ferdinand, is definitely out after suffering knee ligament damage in training. Although, he was always the player most likely to get injured anyway and he's not had the best season, so it could be a blessing for England.

Yup; it's true.

Furthermore, the MLS has been using the same ball all season. Haven't heard any bitching until recently.

Looks like USA can move to the 2nd round. I still say Desert Foxes rule that group. Allez Les Fennecs !!

We didn't do brackets and I'm still not sure how our point system works? All's I know is I need a good showing from The Sky Blue and Guaraní, collectively known as Tha Guays. And Spain to win.

I'm with you! I'm a total newb though. I think that the very fact that I'm interested in this tells alot about the gains that football is making in the US. If a redneck from MS can dig it, I think the sport is on the right path.

I think it's because alot of our kids play it. I didn't grow up playing it, but my kids have. Were all stoked.
Posted: Jun 9, 2010 9:36 am
 
I think your right Cole. I know alot more people this time around that are into it that have never been before and I thats definitely poistive for the game in the US! A solid month of soccer...yes!

Once again, I will be watching every game at home if any Mempians want to swing by. Unfortunately, the projector is down, and it won't be on in the movie room.

They'll probably all be on ESPN 360.
Posted: Jun 9, 2010 12:33 pm
 
I'm worried about Robben, the kid is made out of bones, bones, and bones, all very fragile bones (saw him play for years as a kid here at FC Groningen; never thought he'd made it). One shower on the pitch and he'll be injured again. Plus he absolutely needs Riberi (sorry if I misspelled that, no harm meant, love that guy) to get his magic done. They both think the same. Now the only guy in the Dutch team who once looked able to get as brilliant as Riberi, our Van Der Vaart, turned into a nutjob after playing way too long in Germany, so I'm affraid they gonna switch and switch and switch the line up, which is deadly. And that whole line up is already totally bizar.

Don't worry, you've always got Ryan Babel! Ha! Ha!

Great game to start the tournament. Plenty of opportunities to score for both teams. Both teams struggled to finish, but an entertaining game all around. Since I'm at work streaming the game on Univision, there were several times throughout the game that I had to keep my "oohs" and "ahhs" quiet. Man, South Africa's forwards had some blazing speed out there. Their adrenaline must have been pumping all game.

Bafana Boys shoulda won that one, to hear the ESPN Irish guy tell it. Soccer on the radio is even duller.

In Africa they are used to playing with a wadded up ball of rags tied with string, just sayin'
Posted: Jun 11, 2010 11:54 am
 
Still, an enemy's head will always be the best ball.

Mexico squeaked out the tie, but should have won 2-1, or tied 2-2 if that late shot hadn't hit the post for S Africa.

it's on! WHOO!

I got into it in '06. This year is actually the first time that every game is being televised in the US. In '06, if you wanted to watch Trinidad & Tobago vs. Cameroon, you were screwed unless you had a satellite dish or some obscure digital channel or pay per view setup. Luckily, living across the street from a soccer bar, this was not an issue for me. They got Sky and Setanta and all those channels. I would go watch the games and there would always be people there representing their home countries. That was great fun. Now that ESPN is carrying all of the games it's kind of ruined that, but it shows that soccer is catching on here.

To all you mugs that say it's boring, have you ever watched baseball? Soccer can be boring (I like to think of it as relaxing) and anti climatic, but every once in a while you'll see a game that you'll never forget. Italy vs. Germany in the '06 semifinals comes to mind.

I can see why people think it's boring. There's not alot of scoring

I think the real problem is most Americans don't have the attention span to sit through 45 minutes of uninterrupted sports. If a Bud Light commercial isn't being thrown in your face every 5 minutes, it must be boring.

have you ever watched baseball? - on tv, it's like watching grass die.

Finally watched Once in a Lifetime:The Story of the New York Cosmos, the other night. Great documentary. Also alot of perspective on the American short attention span as it applies to soccer, the continuing genius of Pele and the Tony Sopranotization of Giorgio Chinaglia.

warren ellis' take on the game, from twitter

* Ah. The England team appear to have gotten drunk during half-time.
* Rooney confused by round thing flying through air. It am not bird. Maybe still good to eat? Rooney try to kill with head.

* I wish to assure our American friends that, for this performance, the England team will in fact be executed.

* Jesus. That was like watching two dozen fraggles wrestling in a pit of molasses.

Black Stars definitely have the best uniforms. Mexico looks cool too.

Anyway: The Netherlands will not survive the first round I'm affraid. Still no definitive line up, a dumbass as a coach, but the fuckin worst of all:
the possibility of HEATH 'down there'. Makes our players always tun into pussies.
Never had so less faith in Holland as now


C´mon Nanne, why are you so worried!? It's Denmark, Cameroon and Japan for crying out loud! Two years ago it should've been hard to get through the group phase, now it should be a piece of chocolate cake ...

also, I don't think ESPN's coverage has been very good (or ABC's).

Really? I think this year's coverage has been pretty solid. 2006 was a different story. Their lead commentator was Dave O'Brien, a baseball guy who little to nothing about soccer. He spent half of the games comparing soccer stars to stars in other sports and the other half comparing the World Cup to American sporting events. Their entire crew covering the World Cup in 2006 was horrible. It was insulting to watch. I watched games on Univision or avoided hearing scores until I could download a game someone uploaded from the BBC's coverage. ESPN improved with Euro 08 with Andy Gray and have really done well in getting Martin Tyler, in my opinion.

I think the best US analysis for the World Cup so far has been Fox Soccer Channel's Ticket to South Africa with Andy Gray. Great stuff. They apparently don't have the rights to show highlights, so they really get into tactics and more in-depth analysis than ESPN. Still, ESPN's studio stuff has been pretty decent too. I think Roberto Martinez is very smart and really knows what he's talking about.

I had a dream last night that Mike Tyson and I were in jail playing soccer against NBA stars.

Tyson was a pretty nice guy, and his facial tattoo had been removed. Initially he wanted to beat me up, but I asked him not to and he agreed.

I am worried Paloma cause this coach has no idea how play on this level, he doesn't know the players well enough and the Dutch need a Natural Born Asshole as a coach to make it trhough games against completely worthless teams.

Sorry Nanne, that was me on my gf's account. Anyway, the Dutch had a Natural Born Asshole once as their coach and they didn't even get to go to the WC (2002).

In open play. The North Korean player had a great first touch, scooted past the defender and kicked it past the keeper. Pretty nice. The Chinese plants dressed up as North Korean supporters went wild!
Posted: Jun 16, 2010 8:40 am
 
Yeah Maicons goal was sweet. Question is was he really shooting or was it a cross? You can see when hes at pace he looks across the goal to see whos there for the pass, but I think he was setting the keeper up to drift further out of goal. Brillant shit by a defender no doubt!! N. Koreas goal was nice as well, as Brazil's keeper is one of the best in the world. N. Korea played an exceptional defensive game against the #1 ranked team in the world. Kaka didnt play well, but Robinho has some crazy footwork action going on!

I love soccer; I played/coached for years. I KNOW it's a typically low scoring sport.

However, this year's cup SUCKS. It's boring as fuck. Hopefully, all the upsets/draws will make teams a bit more hungry as the group stage continues.

Question: if the dutch and french lose to the Germans, does the US have to bail them out as usual?
Posted: Jun 21, 2010 6:32 pm
 
No such thing as piling on in the World Cup or any tournament of this kind. If there is a tie on points in the group (meaning 3 for a win and 1 for a draw) it goes to goal differential. Seems like an asshole move, but its in your best interest to score as much as possible in this type or format!
