    I like the idea Big Ears of getting in early with a thread 2 year before it starts, gives us plenty of time to chew the fat. Too early to make any predictions, except England - if we qualify at all - will lose to the Federates States of Micronesia or somebody in a penalty shoot-out.

    Pretty good result for England beating Italy in that friendly match today, Italy made it to the Euro's Final only to get steam-rollered by the mighty Spanish.

    I was just reading that Robin van Persie ex Arsenal has just signed to Man Utd, they have some firepower up front this year, that is insane - Rooney and van Persie scored 57 goals between them last year in the EPL, they were the top two scorers.

    Moved to the Sports sub-forum.

    Way too early to get excited about the WC for me anyway...besides I am positive we have already been eliminated as usual.

    Brazil is under extreme pressure to carry this off, I hope they do meet all the deadlines.

    One word of advice...confiscate every vuvuzela that is within 10km's of any football stadium, that alone will help them surpass South Africa as far as hosting this premium event.;)

    Who knows, you maybe Siberia's top model by 2014, then you can travel wherever you want, Rio de Janeiro I'd have thought is a bit of a honey-trap for hot Russian girls :grinthumb

    About that soccer nothing to say yet, I can say though I'm proud of Russia won Netherlands 5:0 in league of europe few days ago.
