Oh, and I've have plumbed for Daisuke Matsui who apparently ain't doing too badly at Le Mans in Ligue 1, not that I think he's going to solve our striking problems anyway.

Hey mate , you know i'm rootin for Japan as well Hopefully , when the games with braz comes , both will already have 6 pts or sthin like that , and bth will qualify.

You know I'm gonna be paying attention and watching the games I can of japan , its very remarkable the evolution of footy in jap.

Besides u got zico , which is good not coz he IS zico , coz u know there are some great playrs who didnt go ver well as coaches and all or just didnt know how to perform as good as playing , but zico he's a really smart coach , unlike a lot , thats somethin great , coz bud believe me there are some teams , some big teams which looks like they dont have a coach , just like that .

BTW u got a really fine goalkeeper ( Kawaguchi ) , Nakata doesnt need any comment . And I also know Takahara and Yanagisawa , they can grow a lot , bud in the competitin , trust on that.

I don't really wish a particular team to lose, I just enjoy it when an underdog is able to stand up against the "big boys" or at least manage a draw.

Great games (to me anyway during the last WC)
Italy 1 - 2 Croatia
Ireland 1-1 Germany
Mexico 1-1 Italy
USA 3-2 Portugal
South Korea 0-0 Portugal
Senegal 1-0 France
Denmark 2-0 France
England 1-0 Argentina

Sorry, there's my hormones coming out there. Where's Boris Zivkovic the defender ? Is he injured ? He's hot as well!

Actually, I don't think Dario simic is that hot anymore. Maybe I should ask the girls on PLEBA

Figueroa broke his ankle 6 weeks ago. Gone for 3 months.

Palermo played UEFA CUP this year and they're arrived 9th in the league. They're a good team and all the players who got called have all offers of the biggest italian clubs. You don't have to play only for Ac Milan or Juventus to get into the nationalteam...................................

Hey, U2@NYC, what do you think about the Walter Samuel and Javier Zanetti exclusions? Pretty brave from Pekermann, isn't it?

Italy 4-3-3 most probable. Maybe 4-3-1-2



BTW, I've read Intedomine's post, it doesn't seem he claimed an anti-Brazil feeling, he just affirms that he doesn't want Brazil to win because it would be their 6th time, and he would prefer better another team. It's normal, I don't see any anti-thing or whatever, he doesn't talk against them....................
Anyway, I'm of the opinion that who deserves must win, if Brazil is the strongest team I'd have no problem with their 6th cup. What counts is to see good, fair and exciting games.

Samuel has been sucking for the past couple of years. Good call.

Zanetti is more of a controversy. He is an icon. However, his game can be sometimes shallow. I think Pekerman chose players which can give him further flexibility, such as Mascherano, Coloccini or Burdisso.

I agree with most of his calls. The only one that surprised me was calling Franco instead of Lux as goalkeeper. As I am afraid that Abbondanzieri will suck in the World Cup and that we might need to resort to another goalkeeper after the first game.

Cant wait.
