I am almost certain that in 2002 and 2006 I made soccer world cup threads on these very boards.
So why break tradition?
-Perhaps because only myself and maybe 1 or 2 other people here are actually interested in the world cup?
A good reason, and one I am willing to ignore.
Some of you may know there is a little bit of added spice this year as Englands first game coincides amazingly with the USA's.
It's even at the same venue.
Wouldn't it be great if the yanks beat us at our very own sport? A sport that is massive over here, a sport that is played everyday by every boy in this country.
I would find it so great I would probably scream with happy rage.
Personally I love the world cup and how I could walk into a bar anywhere in the world right now and people would be talking about it.
Roll on 3pm GMT tomorrow for the first game: South Africa vs Mexico
