Strangely, I don't know many hardcore football supporters that watch world cup games - they are behind their club and don't really care about their national team.

Anyone here like that? I'm a Newcastle supporter and will read on how they are doing every day, watch their matches on TV (and go to any that are near Manchester, like City, ManU, Wigan).... but I think England matches are great and love watching them. :D (I guess the Scots, Welsh and Irish won't be too bothered this year though? Or would you still watch the games?)

Come on England

May watch some of the match's & may watch the Final.
I used to enjoy the old home internationals, but they really stopped after the jocks tried to demolish the old wembley starting with the goal post's! I do follow a team, but as we are in Division 2 we might as well not be around, all you hear on footie programes on tv or radio is about the premiership:mad: so were do people think some players come from, the lower leagues, thats were!!

Good thread though boss, er sorry i mean guv:thumb:

I'll watch the lot, but id rather watch club matches. I spend 8 months every season abusing most of englands players. Just because Gary Neville decides to wear a different shirt doesnt mean i like him.

I'll be watching every single world cup match, just like 2002! Luckily my exams finished the day before the kick-off back in Japan/South Korea. And thins time around I work predominantly from home, so there's no chance of me missing a game!

I'm with Michael, can't stand football. Think I escaped the brain-washing process when I was younger! ;)

Now if you're talking motorsports, well that's a different kettle of fish all together :thumb:

Sorry, but I just don't really understand the 'pull' of organised sport at all... much rather bash a ball around the back yard with the kids, making up the rules as we go along than sit & watch the stuff on TV or at the grounds. And I hated "Team sports" when I was at school.

Got a couple of LiverpoolFc songs on CD though, dunno f.all about the team sorry, but found a few of the songs when looking stuff up for John & liked them.
Anyone heard "The Scouser Tommy"? love the song, was playing it here a while back when the kids had a friend of theirs over who is American. Was very surprised to discover that she didn't know what a "Tommy" was. She had thought it was the guy's name. Most ironic I suppose is that it had never occured to me that she wouldn't know. :p
