    At long last the World Cup has started. The opening game is notorious as being one of the worst games in the whole tournament. But this year, Brazil v Croatia was a decent match to watch. Neither side will win the tournament unless they drastically improve and I'm sure Brazil will. I've nominated them as the eventual champions.

    They do have home advantage,but is the nation behind them or worrying about public spending cuts? Weren't they also awarded a controversial penalty to get them back into the game after they had fallen behind?

    Steve, you are right on both accounts. The country is a little lukewarm towards their national team, but as the tournament progresses, so will the support.
    And every team that wins a cup tournament always has a moment of good luck that keeps them in.

    I've just checked the table and am pleased to say that they appear to be updated by about an hour after final whistle of each game.

    I bet there were few to predict that Holland would beat Spain, but I'm sure nobody but nobody predicted that Spain would get humiliated 1-5.
    And that RVP headed goal, wasn't it something special. That will be repeated on TV for years to come. Fantastic.

    Colombia 3-0 Greece.
    What a bummer to have a goal scored in the dying seconds of time added on. I predicted it as 2-0 and then 92minutes and 33 seconds into the game Columbia score another one. Lost me 20 points that goal did.

    Bloody Hell, Uruguay 1-3 Costa Rica.
    The commentator said that it was the first upset of this year's World Cup.
    Fool. It is the 2nd upset: he must have forgotten about Holland/Spain. And I got both those results wrong.
    I hope England win, but have put them down as a draw. I'm pretty sure Italy will not beat our boys.

    Similar story here. I had it down as a 0-0 draw but placed my Insurance on this game and not some of my other duff predictions.

    It's a lad from work Punt, he was in a league all on his own in the literal sense so I let him join our League, it was only after I added him that I noticed the cnut was 2nd lol.

    I'm doing as bad as the England squad.

    Cheers Slick, no worries then.

    I'd like to be able to say there's time to turn it around. But like England, there's not.

    FFS, I forgot today's matches were round 3, forgot to predict for the first 2. It appears to have done it for me automatically though, predicted 1-0 wins for Australia :thinking and Holland.

    I'm going good but the boy Cameron is smashing it!

    I'm not sure if he's 12,13 or 14. We'll have him at Betnod when he's 18 though..
