    Before I start I would like to point out that my wife is English and I have no problem with England having a reasonably successful World Cup (although God forbid they ever win it again). But I am already sick to death of the TV presenters and commentators bleating on about England...

    Pre-Sweden..."This team could really do well in this competition and I fancy then to win comfortably today..."

    89th minute against Sweden "This English performance has been the worst in Sven's reign, a disgraceful performance"

    Post match "We really now have to beat Argentina or we'll be on the first plane home - we were terrible today"

    A day later "More on Brazil later but tell me, how can Ireland, whose players are not as good as ours and who play in the same league as our players, do better than us?"

    Russia v Tunisia "The best the Russians have ever done was in 1966 when they lost to West Germany and we all know what happened then"

    I'm sick of them now so altogether (you know the words) "Argentina, Argentina, Argentina"

    Hand of God, Hand of God, Hand of Go-od,
    Hand of God, Hand of God, Hand of God
    Hand of Go-od, Hand of GOD"

    Personally I've always had a soft spot for Brazil, but this Friday along with the vast majority of scots I'll be backing Argentina.
    The last game went to the wire before Batty gave us all a laugh, personally I hope just for once Engerlund take a real pasting.
    Batistuta for a hat-trick!

    Officially supporting Slovenia this World Cup (hey I'm Scottish - I have a soft spot for the under-dogs!). So a Slovene message for Beckham - Ja bente mater! :p Sorry, but I can't stand the guy...

    And if I hear one more mention of 'that year', I may knife someone...

    Doubt if I'll watch the match, but Argentina can have my support too. :)
