Quoted from sweetGTFC


Kills the atmosphere completely.  It just makes me think of premiershite teams who have to rely on blaring out club anthems to get the crowd going.  A tournament with the status of the world cup should never be held in a country simply because it wants to try to prove to the world that it's sorted out it's race problems.  It's a complete flipping nonsense.


Would you still be calling it that if town had gotten promoted to the premiership? I doubt it.

If the Yanks used them vvvuzela's at Guantanamo the Lefty's would be up in arms !!!
Worse than Waterboarding I reckon !!


The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

Look on the bright side, the Africans are too poor to go to too many games (17,000 empty seats at one game yesterday) so there will be more fans and less Africans as the finals progress (hopefully anyway, unless they start letting them in free to fill up seats!).

Yeah, but they drowned out the England band and their insistance on singing our horrible national anthem 10 times a game. .


Go live in Alergeria or somewhere then!

In all fairness though the point of moving the World Cup around the countries and continents is partly to give different parts of the world the chance to impose their own national identities on the tournament.

Yes the vuvuzelas are annoying - to us. But if the tournament was held over here then would the Africans/Asians etc find our drumming or bell ringing annoying?

To be honest it makes no difference to me although I am finding the people claiming that its ruining their whole world cup experience amusing and a little over the top.
