I said the same thing earlier in this thread, now that SA are close enough to being out there will be less local interest in the games and more genuine supporters of the teams will start to turn up in SA to fill the grounds as the games get more exciting/nailbiting/meaningfull which then means more chanting/less vuvuzelas


Until England play. The idiots will have bought up all the spare horns.

Hopefully so. I had to laugh as all their passionate supporters flooded for the exits after the second goal went in! Your not vuvuzelaing any more....


Yeah, you'd never see that at BP.........








.....our supporters start flipping off with 30 minutes left and the game at 0-0

Put your telly on Grimrob.Just heard the crowd singing for the first time.


I dipped my toe in the water tonight and watched most of the France game. It's not as bad as it was earlier in the tournament but the crowd and atmosphere that does come through is negligable. They show very few crowd shots as well in this WC and often put replays on at the wrong time so it has to be said the whole TV package is poor, but it is better than it was.

I'll watch the England match tomorrow whereas at one time I was contemplating watching it on Ceefax.

Not much of an atmosphere i grant you but then France were abysmal and their fans didn't look too happy.I think the TV companies here have toned down the crowd volume because of the complaints.Hopefully the vulvas will now disappear and the volume will increase.

Your right about the coverage though.Pretty poor and too many oh so slow replays at inappropriate times.Guess ITV and BBC have no say over the camerawork.
