I'm not going to South Africa. So instead I'm gonna try and watch a bit if not all of every game at work, or at home or in a bar or wherever. On the telly. With a beer. And I'm gonna predict who I think is gonna win. And talk about football stuff. So there.

22nd: ITALY

Wha? The reigning champions? Out this early? It's no more than they deserve. They had no decent striker. And an ageing defence (still all younger than me, but that's no yardstick anymore). The draw against New Zealand was the first nail in the coffin, and the first sign that all things were not well in camp Italia. Just not enough good players in the end. Shame, as I'd tipped them to be runners-up...
