world cup - Page 23

post #331 of 1044
Here's the second round schedule

Saturday
Germany vs Sweden 11am
Argentina vs Mexico 3pm
Both of these are worth watching I think.

Sunday
England vs Ecuador 11am
Portugal vs Netherlands 3pm
If you only want to watch one, watch Port vs Neth. But I'd watch both.


Monday
Italy vs Australia 11am
?? (looks like Switzerland) vs Ukraine 3pm
If picking one, pick the earlier one.

Tuesday
Brazil vs Ghana 11am
Spain vs ?? (S. Korea/France) 3pm
I think this second game will be good no matter which team it is. Brazil Ghana could be interesting, but Brazil will win.


whoops France just scored as I am typing this. If it ends like this France goes through.

I picked everyone who advanced except Australia... I had Japan coming out of that group instead. Bummer. There goes my perfect record...

Yes, yes, but must you play Silver Convention's "Fly Robin Fly" everytime Arjen Robben touches the ball?

Any other candidates? Someone over on Foxsportsworld.com mentioned Martin O'Neill? He says he's looking to get back into it after a year off with his sick wife.

How about Alan Shearer?

All of the above. Would love to see Klinsmann, but highly doubt it. He never joined MLS when he was still very capable and I know he was offered a deal.

Reyna announced his retirement, thank god. I don't blame him as much as Arena, who was too loyal to one of his players (Arena coached him at Virginia as well). Both Foudy and Waldo were calling for Bruce to bench claudio after the first game.

And why was Eddie Lewis in as a defender, instead of a midfielder? Our best crosser, but not our best defender. With him and Reyna on the pitch, we had two defensive turnstiles.

Time to reload. I'm really curious about our central defense, we seem to have the least amount of youth talent there.

i'm watching TyC, which is like ESPN, in argentina. they are saying that they would have much preferred to play against portugal instead of mexico. 15 hours, 38 minutes, and counting...

i also like australia's chances against italy. australia have a good team with quality forwards. the only reason they're not in the world cup more often is that they've had to face uruguay or argentina in the last phase of qualifying.

italy is overrated right now. and australia is underrated.

yes soccer games, can sometimes reach scores as high as 1-0, keeping drunken europeans on the edge of their seats for hours.
