i did the BBC predictor today for the World Cup.

England got to the final after winning their group and then beating Poland, Argentina and Brazil.

They met Italy in the final who beat the hosts in the semi's!

I am getting far too excited about it all now!
Far too excited, ill give you Poland, but without a match fit Rooney it will be a struggle against a fully fit Argentina let alone Brazil, as for Italy as far as i know they wont have a fully fit Totti during at least the group stages, i dont fancy them going further than at the most the QTR finals.

Actually in the game against Switzerland it was more a fight, these two always come to hit each other , but it wasn't nothing special, in the sense thath there was a heavy rotation of players so there isn't yet an idea of how Italy will be. Lippi is holding the line up secret, but it looks like he wants to play with 3 forwards, indeed Totti plus Gilardino/Toni

We have the measure of the cheating argies now. After 86 and 98 the win in 2002 with Beckhams penalty and the win in the friendly international last year or so they wont beat us.

As for Brazil - if you are going to win it its best to beat the best!

Dude, show some respect. Ok?

We can also talk about the free penalty given to you by Colina in the 2002 WC, which clearly wasn't. And the friendly does not really count.

Yes, I am very much looking forward to trash your sorry English butt (even though you have a Swedish coach) as soon as we meet each other in Germany, but I also respect the qualities of the English team.

So, unless, you show that, I am going to ask the moderators to kick you out.

As long as rules are being followed, such a request would be denied.

Ok, perfect then.

From now on, I will refer to the English squad as the "Royal pussies".

Same thing he is doing with "Cheating Argies", so I think it's fair.

I see A LOT of team bashing and whatnot on here. As much as I like having a polite and civil atmosphere on Interference, I tend to be more relaxed in the sports forum, as it just seems to come with the territory...personal attacks on members excluded, of course. I don't want to kill all of the sports banter...trying to be nice here.

If you want to continue to give me a hard time, you're only hurting yourself.

I'm not giving you a hard time.

I just want you to be fair.

I always do my best to be fair.

Like I said, I know how sports banter can go, and I try to not take all of the fun out of that.

If you want to propose that all bashing of athletes, teams, and other sports personnel be eliminated from this forum...I would start a thread in Don't Expect, Suggest to get some feedback to see if anybody else would be interested in such changes.

No, BC. Now that you indicated to me how far I can go, I will use that indication in this thread.

So since I didn't reprimand actions that you thought deserved reprimanding, you are planning to behave in the same manner that you were complaining about?

No, but I know that I have some room to maneuver when someone like CKONE repeatedly uses the term "cheats".

I think it works out that England would meet Argentina in the qtrs and Brazil in the semis.
