Well the vuvuzela's are not bothering me, they might if I was sat next to a bloke with one at a game (don't get any ideas for next season Chris) but I think it adds to the World Cup experience, like the Mexican wave or the Argentinian tic-a-tape.
The South Koreans are giving Greece
a lesson at the moment, their couple of Premier League players, particularly Man U's Park Ji-sung are technically far superior than the Greeks. How they won Euro 2004 I will never know.The opening game
was a cracker, Siphiwe Tshabalala's sublime finish deserving to be a winner, but I backed 1-1 so that was fine! If the France v Uruguay
game ends up being the competition's worse then I think we will all be happy.
I'm looking forward to the Argentina v Nigeria game a little later. I fancy the Nigerian's to advance but Danny Shittu might not have slept so well when thinking about the Argentinan forward line.
Then onto today's main course, England's opener againt the USA! USA! We are going to some friends who have invited supporters from both sides of the Atlantic. I have noted these last couple of days that our American brothers are getting a little bit chippy, let's hope we don't have to suffer the American media going overboard on a subject they know little about.
Heskey looks like he will start, probably why I am not a football manager but I'd like to see Joe Cole play and think David James should be in between the posts for what it's worth.
Meanwhile in Bermuda we are not getting ESPN's
extensive coverage but local channel ZFB are showing the pictures and appear to have a bloke sat at home filling in the gaps after matches. Shocking but not entirely unexpected. I think I will be watching a lot of the games via the live internet feeds.
