Default Re: World Cup!!

Personally I think Argentina may have peaked too early, although their early form certainly indicates them as one of the favorites, I still think that Brazil have a good chance, the slow build of form is necessary for the world cup

Question Re: World Cup!!

Here's an odd thing, can anyone think of any team, other than England, who's players have had severe injuries during a match, you'll find it hard to find any, of course I'm not saying that any of the England faked their injuries, that was too obvious by the agony on their faces, I was speaking to a friend today, whose brother, a doctor, years ago was head of the England medical team, & he said that he can't understand the present run of injuries, he thinks that tthe present day player gets far more stressed than their 1980's counterparts.

I think its to do with the immense number of games that they play in the english league which is more then most other countries, so it leads them more prone to injuries.

Also modern day players are overpaid primadonnas, so that doesn't help

Roll on Sunday
Can't wait till Sunday. GO ENGLAND!

Hehe.

Unhappy Re: World Cup!!

Sad to say, I've gone off the whole World Cup, & I don't care if my home country, England, wins or not! nothing to do with the injuries, it's because they are SO c-r-a-p-p-y!!
