the guy on espn the other day actually yelled goal! when it had hit the side netting. i was watching the bbc clips of the england goals on youtube.. it was so nice to hear the name BEFORE the goal goes is... as in ... "cole picks it up.. crosses into GERRRRARDDDD!". i dont know if anyone has ever seen it but FSC has a show, i think its called fanzone. they give 2 fans microphones and have them commentate a game.. its brilliant...its like watching with your mates down the pub...

next world cup i'd like to setup something similar where i broadcast live commentary for a small expats audience...hopefully by then i wont totally sound like dave o'brien.

Maybe by that point you will have turned completely septic and won't care about the world cup? :scared:

Another bad thing about ESPN's coverage is them commentating on the cynical side of the game. Many of the commentators actually encourage time wasting, professional fouls, getting another player yellow or better red carded, diving etc. etc. We all know it goes on but I can't imagine the BBC getting excited and encouraging these antics as being 'all part of the game' as ESPN do?!?!

Anybody else on the East Coast getting fu kcing sick of this rain now ? Just turned torrential here again. Looks like a wet summer...
(We are spoilt now, in Blighty a half sunny day with a drop of rain was luxury to us)

Univision - a bit of a samba party in Germany before the game. But it's half-hearted now. Wish the Mexicano's could have stayed a bit longer. They deserved it after their performance the other day.

BRAZIL V GHANA then.
I have no idea how this will go. On the predictions we have:
Brazil v Ghana
3-0 27.7% [5]
3-1 16.6% [3]
4-0 16.6% [3]
4-2 11.1% [2]
2-0 11.1% [2]
2-1 11.1% [2]
1-0 5.5% [1]


4-2 chaps ? In the last four games the goals have dried up,only four scored. But I don't think there will be six in this one.
But you never know... we could see a history making event here or another card dealing game of shame.

You could easily set that up, similar to Manc's radio station a while back. Then we could all watch the game on Univision and you could do the commentary - great idea, get it sorted.

1 mins: Ronaldo is through, but a terrible offside decision from thelinesman gives Ghana an early let-off. Ronaldo was well onside - even his belly was level.


made me chuckle

I have a question:

What's with thumb-sucking after goals? I thought I saw a Mexican guy do it the other day, and possibly a European guy?

I wish I wasn't at work

Reading the play-by-play on MatchCast isn't quite the same thing. I hope Ghana at least puts up a brave showing for the game, although we can assume Brazil will make mincemeat out of them. They should be proud to have gotten this far, and in 2010 I'll bet they're even better. They have a fairly young team.

Someone on MatchCast was calling it "their hack n slash technique that worked quite well against the US, but won't against the deft touch of Brazil".
