World Cup 2006 Germany


Recommended Posts

Well, I have my money on Brazil being the winners this year, as do most I suppose :sad:


I probably should have left this thread closer to home, but fuck it I'm too excited.


Good on you USA folks aswell. You americans reached the quarter-finals at Korea/Japan in '02, :2T:

Just a shame your players have to play with such a small fan base :sad:, they don't get any encouragement!






But Englands squad this year... :zzz:

We still believe, we still believe

We still believe, we still believe


It's coming home, it's coming home

It's coming, Football's coming home

It's coming home, it's coming home

It's coming, Football's coming home


Tears for heroes dressed in grey

No plans for final day

Stay in bed, drift away

It could have been all

Songs in the street

It was nearly complete

It was nearly so sweet

And now I'm singing


Three lions on a shirt

Jules Rimet still gleaming

No more years of hurt

No more need for dreaming


Talk about football coming home

And then one night in Rome

We were strong, we had grown

And now I see Ince ready for war

Gazza good as before

Shearer certain to score

And Psycho screaming


Three lions on a shirt

Jules Rimet still gleaming

No more years of hurt

No more need for dreaming


We can dance Nobby's dance

We could dance it in France


It's coming home, it's coming home

It's coming, Football's coming home

Actually the USA didnt' do so bad back '02. I was rootin for 'em... I'll still do.


Thats awesome Don, thanks for the line up. Next to Tennis, Soccer is my next fav sport. Fucking love soccer season, especially The World Cup. Last WOrld Cup, i wasn't going for Brazil. I was actually rooting for Germany. I like to go against the majority in most cases. THat German goalie was amazing. WOooohhhh!!!


So here's to this year's event!!! :cry:

The best thing about being in the US for the World Cup is not hearing about 1966 thousands of times in the months leading up to the World Cup and for months afterwards after England inevitably don't get close to winning it. "Oh err, they're a good team an' all but they'll never be Geoff Hurst and the boys...."


I wonder if Uruguaians still brag about the wins in 1930 and 1950.

im surprised to see arsenal have players in the england squad, i cant remember many from the season

but theo walcott... i dunno what sven is thinking, the kid makes rooney seem like a grandad (age wise)

no one (apart from sunderland fans, yeah right) know anythign about him

but go sven....

me,. ill be cheering for england (because ireland arent in it and i like gerrard) and holland, because they are the brilliance....

and don... the lightning seeds song... what a track

Felt good being a Chelsea fan along side Danny Dyer in FF, though.


And yeah, when I sat down and watched green street with a mate we couldn't help but tag Elijah's character '' Frodo ''


'' Oh, so Frodo used to be a journo? ''

'' Yeah. ''

'' Alright. ''

( Burst out laughing. )

I've got 5 Primal albums, Xtrmntr, Dirty hits, Vanishing point, Screamadelica ( Of course! ) and give out but don't give up. All top class.

See it's never the same with Primal, that's what I love so much about them. OK, maybe you'll hear a few songs that are alike but most the time it's so varied you don't get a break, so it's always fresh.


This is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy off topic, I forgot this was my world cup thread for a few moments there.

Well see, I hate the gooners all around, but I'm no spurs arse raper either. My best mate is a Spurs fan and he's been locked away for the past few days, just cursing the Arsenal. I think Arsenal spiking the food is a bit OTT, but you never know these days.

Good luck with Barca next week by the way mate, hahahaha.


ii get to see them in july...
