In the hopes that Yana and I aren't the only ones following it, who do you guys think will win? What do you think of the teams? Who do you support? And who's going to be the greatest loser?

Believe it or not i go for Spain even after today's game with the 1-0 loss against the Swiss. The Dutch-team won't make it to far with all the ego's in it.

love

Yana

ps. so far the quality of the game isnt that high either.

I'm not sure about it, I think Spain will lose simply because everyone thinks they're going to win, they're not good with pressure. I truly hope they win, they're a fantastic team. How the hell did they lose that match? Brazil disappointed me, I thought they were better than that. Germany, however, surprised me. They were the best so far and they can make it far, even if they don't win.

I love Argentina, their strikers are amazing and Messi is a genius, I'm going to be disappointed if they don't make it far. I hate the fact that people want teams to lose simply becase they don't like the players or the coaches, how narrow minded. I don't like BCN or Maradona and I still want Spain or Argentina to win. I want the best teams to proceed to the next levels, that makes the whole tournament much more interesting.

I don't like what they're doing with the hours- you can't put Spain, Holland and Argentina at impossible hours- with all due respect to Uruguay and South Africa, those three teams are much more interesting. As for Uruguay and South Africa- there was an offside! That penalty and the red card buried the South Africans, so even though I wanted Uruguay to win I felt bad for them. I agree, the matches aren't very good and I'm still waiting for that spark you usually see from teams like Brazil, where is it? One last thing- the Vuvuzelas have got to stop- they're driving me nuts!

I think I was in the USA when the last world cup was on as I remember people sreaming in their cars because what ever team they were supporting won or somerthing.

I don't know if it was the USA team back then as I don't know how far they got through, but these people who screamed from the roof of their car was when I was with my mum and dad walking down Rodeo Drive.

Belive it or not it was.

To bad our team didn't get through to the final matches this world cup.
