Barthez's friends in the team are Thuram and Zidane, they are the real bosses of the French team, Thuram calls Domenech "the impostor" and never talks to him.

Coupet doesn't moan because he is number 2, Barthez would have left the French team or created a big tension during the World Cup. It was too risky.

I've never seen Franck Ribery in action but apparently he's hot stuff at the moment, what do you think of him guill?

And Boumsong in defence is a bloody liability. Haven't been that impressed with Gael Givet either, but that was several years ago in the Champions League and he may have become a better player since then.
Ribery is a very interesting player, he runs very fast, has a huge activity in the midfield (he will play on the right wing), is generous, a good dribbler, he won't stay in France for a long time.
He is a bit nervous and not experimented but he is perfect for the last 20 mns.

Mexès is better than Boumsong, he is a better technician, with a duet Thuram - Boumsong or Thuram - Gallas, the ball does not arrive very well in the midfield, the French team loses precious seconds when defenders have the ball.
Boumsong can play on the right of the defense, he is more polyvalent than Mexès, that's the reason why he is in the squad.
Givet can play (bad) everywhere in the defense, he is a warrior but his technic is limited. He won't complain not to be in the starting 11, he is a sort of entertainer for the squad.

How can you bench a guy whose last name is a noun? (Barthezery: the act of wandering out of one's goalmouth for no apparent reason)

The most beautiful thing about the most important event (of any kind) of 2006 is that whilst so many think that Brazil are a shoo-in to win their 6th world cup, previous World Cups have produced shocks that a beyond human comprehension and prompt worldwide utter disbelief.
I agree, many people don't though

Pundits and sport journalists over here in England all wringe whenever they're precious France, Argentina, Italy are knocked out, or when Greece won the Euro. What is it to them if Italy is knocked out anyway? I honestly don't find them that entertaining.

U2@NYC, who's the left back for Argentina? Heinze hasn't played for Utd since Sept, no way he's match sharp/fit.

Statistically, soccer is the major team sport that is most prone to upsets, simply beacuse of the paucity of goals. It shouldn't be a major shock when one of the top teams goes down in a short tournament, but that's always how it gets portrayed in the media.

Well, World Cup reports in North America are always portrayed awkwardly since generally we don't have a bloody clue about football. Generally speaking, of course.

I love the game but not enough to pay for it on PPV. or get up at 7am to watch a match. Love the World Cup and Euro though.

It's now between Heinze and Milito. If Heinze can recover, then he will start.

I celebrate when Brazil and England lose...

how good is Milito? Heinze is very good, from what i've seen of him at Utd. but after not playing for 9 months i'd think it's gonna be hard for him to be ready for the pace at the world cup.

funny, i'd like him to miss the world cup, or at least not be at his best but be fully fit and ready to start for Utd next season


any other rivals you root against?

i enjoy watching Germany lose
