Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
So who do you think will win the trophy? Who will win the Golden Boot? And who will be the new kid on the block that everyone will be talking about.
WebmasterWorld is a global forum so there must be lots of different opinions out there.
Probably will be a European Team as when the WC is held in Europe it does tend to go that way.
>>>1. Who will be the big underperformer?
Team: Argentina, might not get passed the first round.
>>>2. Who will play lousy but go far anyway?
Germany - As always.
The lousy team that will go far?
Agree with you, Germany as always...
The winner, no doubts, will be Brazil. Second is Netherlands. Or may be Italia - if Berlusconi wants its Presidential seat back and pays good money ;)
An African team in the semi-final! Ivory Coast or Ghana, let's go! I have killed two chicken last week and done my voodoooo ;) Anyway, World Cup will be in South Africa in 2010.
England will win it. (Sir Wayne Rooney in the new years honours list? It could even be a peerage for the spud faced nipper.)
Brazil and France will not make the quarter finals. Germany will be lucky to get out of the group stage.
Ivory Coast, The USA and Australia will out perform expectations.
I wonder who the surprise African package will be?
Ivory Coast could be one of the surprise packages of the tournament. Would like to see Paraguay do well as they can play some marvellous football. England will make the quarter finals. Togo will be the whipping boys!
Brazil? Brazil were beaten by Mexico - they are not invincible.
a south American team has yet to win in Europe
For the record: Brazil won the 1958 World Cup in Sweden. 17-year old Pele helped a lot.
Brazil is my favorite this year too. IMHO a champion needs not only a strong team but also at least one outstanding player. Can't see anyone outperforming Ronaldinho.
I think Japan have as much chance of winning as Wales does
LOL - I wonder how long it will be before an Asian team wins the World Cup. China will pose a threat one day, and I still do not understand why Asia has to play qualifiers against Middle East opposition.
Only hours to go. What time is the opening ceremony?
Not so with FIFA. It is symptomatic that the German version of the official World Cup website changes Swedish names like Källström and Allbäck even if they pose no problems for German writers and readers.
One word about Pele: when he played, they did not have as many rules as now; he was chopped down by defensive players. It does make it harder to play, that's why I think he is still the best.
