SVENSATIONAL

AdvantagesGood fun :o)

DisadvantagesI'm at school for most of it :o(

"...case you don‘t know... What is the World Cup? ------------------------- The World Cup is held every four years with 32 contenders. It all starts from two years before the actual World Cup, (called the World Cup finals) with the qualifying. It depends how well the many more than 32 contenders do in qualifying to who will compete. For just over 2 weeks from the start of the finals there is what is called the 'group stages'. The 32 contenders ..." Read review

A SAMBA PARTY IN THE LAND OF THE RISING SUN

AdvantagesLoads of superb footy to watch :)

DisadvantagesRidiculous times the matches are on :(

"Oh well, with the football season just finished, you’d think all us football followers would be feeling a bit down in the dumps, I mean come on, what the hell are we going to do with ourselves on a Saturday/Sunday afternoon/evening over the next few months? What, with no football matches to attend/watch/listen to, I suppose we could all go on a holiday/break or even do the unthinkable and go shopping with the missus for once, we could get those ..."

Germany doesn´t always win when it´s 11 vs 11

Advantagesread op

Disadvantagesread op

"Well, the world cup 2002 was something great, but also a little bit disappointing, it was kind of that parties you don´t how to talk about. You don´t know how to rate and don´t know what to tell your friends you think about it. But, here´s my chance and I´ll try. Generally bad Well, call me old-fashioned, but from my point of view football world cups should be held in Europe or South America, where football is football, with a noisy corwd, ..." Read review

For World Cup 2002 Read Euro 2004 - KILL ME NOW

AdvantagesYou can make a lot of money

DisadvantagesYou can get sick to death of hearing about it

"The focus of today's attention is that seminal sporting event The FIFA World Cup. Blokes love football - don’t we? We can talk about it for hours down the pub, in the office or just about anywhere else. Anyone who doesn’t like football needs their head examined – what’s wrong with them? They must be mad! Wrong. Let me cast any shadow of a doubt from your mind – I f**ing hate football. Nonetheless, I am a realist, and ..." Read review

USA CHUFFED --MEXICO STUFFED

AdvantagesIt wasn't the USA's final World Cup match! :D Yeeeeeeeeeee-HAAAAAA!

DisadvantagesIt wasn't the USA's World Cup Final match. :(

"...SCHEDULED CONSCIOUSNESS TO BRING YOU THE FOLLOWING NEWS ITEM LIVE ON LOCATION FROM KOREA, WHERE HISTORY IS BEING MADE ... Ladies ... Gentleman ... Fellow Footie-Fans... . It's A Great Day To Be "Still Alive!" As I type this op, I'm watching the final few seconds of referee stoppage time at the end of United States' World Cup 2nd Round match against Mexico... The score is the USA --two, Mexico --nil... Barring the occurrence of the most frightful ..." Read review

It's Samba Time

AdvantagesBiggest tournament in football history, The ultimate achievement for a team and for the players, Provides some of the most exciting footballs and the occasional unexpected result and twist and turns

DisadvantagesLosing and when it's all over

"...most of us are aware the World Cup 2002 comprises of eight groups. Each group consists of four teams. Four of these groups will be played in Korea and four will be played in Japan. These are my predictions and my appraisal of the teams concerned. Group A --------- France Senegal Uruguay Denmark Uruguay is an exceptional team with very talented players who are full of flair. Most of there players play in Italy, which alone speaks ..." Read review

It's Not Coming Home

AdvantagesSome cracking action and players

DisadvantagesSome not quite so good

"So the biggest footballing event in the world is less than two weeks away and everyone is giving their expert opinion on who will win the 2002 World Cup, well never one to knock at trends here I go with my synopsis of the 2002 World Cup Finals to be held in Japan and South Korea in May and June. I could sum up this opinion in one word but that would be pretty boring so if you want to know my current tip as to the eventual winners I am afraid you will ..." Read review

It's come again

Advantagesmore excuses to get drunk, something to entertain you

Disadvantagestoo many hooligans, too much violence and stupidity

"...is finally upon us again. The bigest football tournament in the history of football. The World Cup is a massive football event which is held every 4 years in a different country. Every coutry competes and has to qualify and then these countries go through to have a chance of winning the cup. This year it is being held way way over the other side of the world to us in Korea, Japan. My country England did so well to get through I was really ..." Read review

The World Cup from a self confessed non-fan

AdvantagesQuite fun to watch even for non-fans

DisadvantagesSome matches can be boring

"...fan, I have really enjoyed the 2002 World Cup. So this is an opinion from a different perspective - from someone whose life isn't revolved around a bag of leather... I have never really been interested in football. My family aren't really football fans so I didn't get the headstart many of my footie-mad friends did when they were younger. In that case I haven't really got a favourite team and I don't go out of my way to watch loads of matches. ..." Read review

A new direction

AdvantagesA chance for the Asians to put on a good show

DisadvantagesMay be a while before they get another chance

"...an exciting move away from the Europe/Americas axis. The decision wasn’t so much a brave one, more the obvious one. Soccer interest in the far east has never been greater and the infrastructure is certainly in place. Without question, the 2002 World Cup co-hosted in Japan and South Korea is likely to be one of the best-organised and most colourful events in the history of sport. But what of the football? Well, to start, I honestly believe the draw ..." Read review

England 2002 World Cup

AdvantagesEncouraging for the future

DisadvantagesBeing knocked out at the Quarter Finals

"...delete a review. Anyway, enjoy the review and all comments are greatly appreciated. Phil :) Before England could become part of the Japan/South Korea world cup finals of 2002, like most other teams they had to qualify. They finished top of their group, along the way picking up a memorable 5-1 away victory over Germany. When the groups for the competitions were drawn - England’s own group was described as the 'Group of Death'. We were drawn ..." Read review

Proud to be English again

AdvantagesPride in your country

DisadvantagesIt only happens like this every 36 years

"...now it is all change. The green hills of England have swollen with pride and England is through to the quarter finals of the world cup, the monarchy is popular again and the words “I am proud to be English” are once again resounding through the hills. Football is a barometer of our society; it is a bench mark of how we feel about ourselves and after beating Denmark 3-0 we are in seventh heaven. This world cup tournament has been like no other. ..." Read review

Dont forget Ireland.

AdvantagesGood if you are English

DisadvantagesNot backing Ireland

"...even before you get past the first paragraph, let me explain further........ I am Scottish, I dont dislike England as a team just like I dont dislike Ireland or Wales. But I do like a VERY good game of football. While watching the Mexico v Italy game today (which I thoroughly enjoyed 1-1), the commentator was talking about the teams that are through to the last 16. Which does not include France or Argentina.(Quelle domage!!) Now the majority ..." Read review

Who's gonna win it

AdvantagesEverything about it

DisadvantagesIts too early

"...Japan and South Korea. With the first week of the tournament gone and every team played at least 1 game in the group stages I thought I could write a decent opinion having had to endure early morning since Saturday to ensure that I could watch every game. The tournament is made up of 32 teams from all over the world which are split up in to 8 groups of 4 teams. Each team plays each other once receiving 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw and ..."

My Predictions

AdvantagesBound to be some good football

DisadvantagesBut England won't get far

"...doesn't fit into any of the 'matches' bits (since it covers all of them) so I hope here will do... Lets start by saying I’m a football follower but, to be honest, probably completely unqualified to predict World Cup results – not least because I rely almost exclusively on www.liverpoolfc.tv for all my football news (the curse of not having a TV). Last time round (France ’98 for those of short memories) we had quite a surprise, ..." Read review
