World Cup Qualifying

Becks As Lady Gaga

Trying to predict the World Cup draw [here] proved to be about as useful as trying to explain what happened to David Beckham’s head! I tried in the title of this post, but seriously if anyone can explain it better that would be great! In football news, the draw produced some fair groupings, except for...

Predictions – World Cup Groups

Last World Cup draw saw Heidi Klum prancing about on stage kicking balls and pulling them out of pots; this year we’re led to believe that South Africa’s finest piece of ass, Charlize Theron will flaunt her Sth. Africaness on stage and even babble off some cheesy FIFA script. Ah, women and World Cups… what...

Hand Of Titi Leaves Greens Le Blue

It’s no wonder the Republic Of Ireland are nicknamed ‘The Nearly Men‘… I mean they Nearly made it to a penalty shoot out (which I reckon they would have won), they Nearly scored more than just one goal which would have put them into the finals and late in the game the ball that was...
Slovenia Upset Motherland

Slovenia Upset Motherland

I was so sure Russia were going to progress to the World Cup next year [statement made here] that I went and bet my house on the outcome… oops! Anyone care to spare a bit of room at their place for me and Guus Hiddink? I’m sure he’s going to be exiled sometime in the...
Portuguese Do It With Ease

Portuguese Do It With Ease

I was actually expecting a lot more from the Bosnians in this match… I mean, in the last match they came out scathing for war, but by the end of this one all they’d done was fire blanks! Now we have to watch man-o-sex C-Ron and his tanned cronies prance around the toughened streets of...
Hard Win For Hellas

Hard Win For Hellas

Right from the start, the Ukrainians went at Greece like a nuclear train heading full speed for a reactor and that is exactly how it ended for them… in disaster! After missing a host of early chances to go ahead, a clever Greek style* through ball by Giorgios Samaras found Dimitris Salpingidis unmarked on the...
Pharaohs Outfoxed!

Pharaohs Outfoxed!

The match before this [in Egypt] was marred by crowd troubles and home fans throwing rocks at the Algerians. The scare tactics worked cause they walked away from that match as 2-0 victors and forced a playoff half a week later. Last night however, with the match taking place on neutral territory, the crowd would...

Predictions – Final World Cup Spots

Expect more than just fireworks tonight when Bosnia-Hertzegovina host Portugal and I’m even going as far as saying prepare yourself for an upset! On the weekend the two teams played out an epic match in which Portugal just scraped through and I think that onslaught by the Bosnians will continue tonight. There is a great...
Greece Under Siege

Greece Under Siege

Greece came under attack last night by a rampant Ukraine team looking to put the disappointment of several missed tournaments behind them and now they have it all to do on Wednesday night away from home too. I’ve gotta say, getting a result in the Ukraine will be harder than pushing a cart of proverbial...
Advantage Russia

Advantage Russia

The Russian’s may have a slight edge on Slovenia going into the second leg on Wednesday night, but they also have an unfair advantage and the ‘X’ factor you’d bet your house on… so I’m just going to go as far as calling it now. Expect Russia to be in South Africa next year. Why?...
Portugal Escape Bosnian Onslaught

Portugal Escape Bosnian Onslaught

No it isn’t war, although the way these two teams attacked each other in last nights qualifier would leave you thinking it was 1992 all over again! By far, Portugal’s best player was their crossbar, with their left post coming in a close second and Deco in a distant third and as both sides missed...
You Arsey Coque!

You Arsey Coque!

My hatred for Nicolas Anelka and his goal thieving ways have been well documented on this site, so this is an open invitation to Irish fans and Anelka hating fans alike, to join together and belittle the cheap-ass way he scores his goals and then celebrates them as though they were masterpieces. At this point,...
