^It's not at all simple, the superiority of the sports must be angrily debated for around 6 hours until it breaks down into wrestling matches, and finally who can chug the most beer.

There is a clear set of rules for such discussion

of course...well in that case I declare football the best.

I voted for the U2 btw, just because I'm not that big on soccer (although I'm starting to get into it). Plus God forbid the US made the finals we'd lose anyway, so...

It'd be nice to see them in concert, and really I just want to go to Hawaii.

The U2 concert, although I love football (soccer, whatever)

1/I've never seen U2 live, in fact the only other concert I've been to was an Oasis concert.

2/ U2, as people, mean more to me than David Beckham. I'm not actually a massive fan of English football. Yeah I watch them but I'm more of a fan of Henry, Brazil and Croatia. But that said i'm not as big as a fan as I used to be. Two years ago I would have said option 1, even though I've always admired Bono and U2 have always been my favorite band. But now I've into U2 even more recently and haven't followed the sport as much as I used to.

3/ Come on, it's Hawaii! I'm from England, so a vacation in Germany doesn't seem as attractive as a once in a lifetime visit to one of my top places to visit in America. Berlin is only a one hour plane journey

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

that is evil - evil!

England in the World Cup Final or U2 abroad????????

I would be torn, distressingly so BUT I think I would have to go to the World Cup Final on the basis it is a one off once in a lifetime opportunity whereas there would be a good chance I can see the same U2 concert at a home venue or at least closer and they are likely to tour again.

No. 2.

While I don't mind watching big soccer tournaments (our team made the finals? when pigs fly...), I'd much rather get my first chance at seeing U2 live.

By the way, is there some reason U2 hasn't given some sort of concert during the World Cup? Is there a single person on this earth who doesn't want this to happen???

Poor unelinghtened souls, sheltered and deliberately distancing themselves from the rest of the world while they continue to follow all these sub-standard sports that no one else in their right mind would even give a thought to.

Obsessed by a game called "football" (which isn't really football) and is wimpy and nothing interesting ever happens.

Basketball is a "has-been", a fad that the rest of the world has grown out of.

I feel sorry for you. Your missing out on the world's greatest party. In a world where there is so much pointless war and religious and politically motivated hate, real football is a necessary escape.

Hehe....

And if New Zealand don't start overcoming heavyweight football nations such as Vanuatu, it will continue to remain beyond belief.

But I actually think that New Zealand will have a greater chance of qualifying now that Australia is part of Asia. I mean what are FIFA gonna do with the winner of Oceania? Give them a .25 spot? That's unlikely. So perhaps FIFA will continue to designate the .5 spot to the Oceania winner, and perhaps the winner of Oceania will play off against a 3th or 4th or 5th or 6th placegetter from AsiA or CONCACAF, which means New Zealand could enter a situation where they are just 2 matches away from a berth in the 2010 world cup. Interesting times lay ahead for New Zealand football.

the oceania federation has decided that australias place will be determined by the winner of a tourament with small countries like american samoa and that, then the top 2 oceania sides will play off for a chance to play the 5th placed team from either Aisa or South America for a place in the world cup, mind you New Zealand wasent the 2nd place Oceaniac Team, Australia played off with the Solomen Islands and won like 10-0

Definitely a trip to Germany to see England in the world cup final. I love U2 but seeing my country in the final of the worlds greatest and most prestigious sports competition is too mouth watering to resist!
