im going for england this time...usa is second
GO NETHERLANDS! I'll be the only one in the Texas sporting my Oranje!
Does anyone know if there is a site where I can view streaming video of the games. I just checked my program guide and damnit my cable company isn't showing many games. This is the only sporting event I get hyped up for, I must find games to watch. Send help!
I am pretty sure I read on bbcnews/sports yesterday that they would show all the games on there!!! definitly worth checking out!!
England I fear, will not win
We have adecent team but a total lack of spark. We could have done with the vibrance Rooney brought to the team. We are going to find it pretty tough I think.
Brazil will win despite having a fairly average defence. ever heard the phrase "attack is the best fprm of defence"??
I will be supporting England (obviously ) but I just can't see them standing out from the average crowd of teams enough to win
What do you mean fear? Of course they wont. It's like waiting for the inevitable. Why do people try to delude themselves with hope and ignore logic?
The BBC website is streaming (some) games.
My brother has money on against me that the Ivory Coast will get to the semi's.
you reckon they will or they wont?? and whoever reckons they do, are they a chelsea/drogba fan perchance??
Okay so I checked the BBC's site. Thanks for directing me to the site fellas. However, it's only available to people in the UK.
I'm guessing they will only allow certain IP ranges. Do you think they will really block outside connections? Is there a way to by pass this, maybe a proxy server?
I have money on them not making it.
You can use a proxy usually to get past it I would imagine.
Whoo Hooo! I found where I can watch at least the Dutch games, I'll be able to catch the Holland vs. Australia game Sunday.
In case any of the other 4 people that vote for NL are interested you can watch the game live at http://www.knvb.org/ for £5.49 (GBP)
Me and a mate have put bets down at Betfair.co.uk...add £25 bet and get another £25free!!
i made a sure fire money maker......Bet on Brazil reaching the final.....but loosing.
Ive also placed smaller £5 bets of odd teams like Iran,Chk Republic...their odds are staggering.
Wow, what a great sendoff to Germany!
6-0 and a hatrick from Crouch should give England some confidence for next week!
We're the bookies second favourite to win now. We have an awesome squad. But there will be something, somehow, we will end up feeling cheated again.
If by "staggering" you mean "pissing money away in the wind" then I agree
HAHAHA come on. Bookies second favourite IN THE UK.
"Awesome" is debatable as well.
It's called soccer.
Have u seen Iran play?, also just alittle numbers for yer.
If i do bet on Iran to lift the cup i can bag £4700!(never gonna happen tho) and if i bet only to win the group stages then i still get £100 minium, all this for a £5 bet.
Also i did say that i'd get £25 free from betfair, so the free money will be on stupid bets and the real money on proper bets.
Football, we invented the sport so we have the correct name
Germany, nah... they've gone downhill in the past couple of years!
Bookies don't like to lose money, they make decent odds. Besides, we've been seeded 2nd for bloody ages now.
