    Mat, don't bother. Since I've put him on my ignore list, most of the threads have improved enormously

    Thoughts.

    Father time is ruthless. Diego Forlan was a force of nature in 2010. This year he was just another guy on the pitch.


    Cavani has cheek bones that could cut marble.

    Just as well Uruguay are out. Now the team, FA and citizens can devote their full energies in defending the honor of Luis Suarez.

    Look out Brazil. If they don't play better Colombia will kick them out of their own party.
    Terrific huja. Thanks a lot. Thanks for sharing and your great effort. Appreciated

    Wow through the desert. Please take plenty of liquid :-) Yeah I keep you updated. First game I'm really looking forward. Second too late. On paper not so exciting anyway but maybe they proof me wrong. Great Sunday :-)

    At least one English fella will make it into a World Cup final. Great refereeing last night :-) Back to back final very likely.

    Anybody read Tim Noonan's column in the SCMP about how a Canadian feels about the US in the World Cup? He sum up my feelings quite well:
    http://www.scmp.com/sport/soccer/art...ect-neighbours

    Excerpt:

    Traditional animosity towards big brothers flows on both sides of the Atlantic. As the world gathered for a month of festive footy down in Brazil, a BBC reporter wandered into a Scottish pub just before England were ready to kick off against Uruguay. He asked everyone in the pub who they were supporting and to a man they all claimed to be pulling for the Uruguayans.

    If that same reporter had wandered into a Canadian pub just before the US were ready to take on Germany, he might find that those inside were actually feeling a little neighbourly. The US soccer team have fans in places that most of their other national teams can only dream of and for most Hosers who are supporting them it usually comes with a caveat: I can't believe I am rooting for the US, however…

    I mean in all honesty, what is not to like about the American team at this World Cup? They are certainly not the most talented or dynamic crew and even the most optimistic American fan will tell you that it would be a miracle if they won. But after a couple of weeks of watching so much diving and dramatics, it's kind of refreshing to enjoy a team that play with some integrity and grit with a likeable and progressive coach in Juergen Klinsmann.

    They are a rare species: an American underdog. Playing a sport still yearning for mainstream acceptance in their home country, on the eve of their match with Germany last week they were pushed back in the domestic sporting firmament by the news that NBA superstar LeBron James is opting out of his contract with the Miami Heat.

    Still you will never, ever hear that Yew-S-A chant out of me. Some things are just non-negotiable.
