    Football World Cup 2014

    It's two weeks to go to football's biggest showpiece, the World Cup.




    Who's excited? As always, I'm thrilled when it's World Cup time, and I'm thrilled it's in Brazil who have won it five times in their history.

    Despite the nay-sayers, we JUBbers did well with the last World Cup in 2010 which was hosted here in .za, so I hope all the fans will keep this thread going too!


    Preliminary squads have been announced, and the kits have been unveiled as well:


    "Home" kits for the World Cup.


    12 days to samba time.

    Re: Football World Cup 2014

    This year could be really great, the only problem is I need to decide on a second team!
    With the group England have we could easy go out (I'm quietly confident of drawing with Italy and beating Uruguay though)and my normal second team, the Netherlands, will sadly almost certainly get knocked out of their group.

    Anyone want to make a case for other sides? I could just go with Argentina as i think they will win it, but i hate them so much.

    Re: Football World Cup 2014

    I'm backing the Netherlands, as always, and expect them to do well. Hopefully one better than 2010, 1974 or 1978, although that group isn't easy and if they finish 2nd they will have Brazil in the 2nd round. They had Brazil in Round 2 here in .za as well, as I recall, and finished them off easily enough but Brazil weren't hosting...

    Argentina seems like a logical 2nd choice and have an easier route through the group and 1st knockout, and I have no issues with backing them so I will probably pick them as my 2nd favourites.

    ^ If Netherlands make it out of that group, they will already be doing great! But trust the Dutch to get into a massive fight and end up destroying themselves! Are you an Afrikaner then or do you just really like oranje.

    Argentina have it easy for a long time, and I really think a quick bet on Messi to win top goalscorer will come in easily (William Hill have him at 8/1 at the moment, which is really good odds!)

    Nope, not an Afrikaner. Just always loved the Oranje and the total football.

    Messi, along with Rooney and Ronaldo, has yet to perform in a World Cup. Perhaps this is his year.

    I'm hoping Spain will do well. Chile are dark horses. Argentina are looking strong too.
    Somehow, I just get the feeling Brazil may not win it.

    I think this will really shock people when they head out to Brazil. Everyone seems to imagine it will be cheap out there, but its going to be European prices for accommodation, and bars will be out to sting foreigners. Saying that, follow the Cariocas and people should find much cheaper beer than that.

    The expectations for England are low so they're winners, regardless:
    1) They exit in the group stage: no one's surprised.
    2) They advance and get knocked out (on penalties): no one's surprised.
    3) They win it: no one's surprised. (lol)

    I pretty much agree with that, though I would extend it to the whole of the Mediterranean basin.

    Harsh on Azpi, his been one of the best players defenders in the prem this season and his been playing out of position! I think Albiol over Carvajal is an odd one though. I guess he wanted 3 centre backs, with Azpi covering both left and right back.

    I will say Torres is odd, but clearly the manager wants to stick with a player he knows and has been the golden boot winner at the last two international tournaments. For me Villa going was an odder one over Negredo and Llorente, but I guess he VDB is just going with players he trusts up front + Costa.

    Mata is a good player and always does well for Spain, but Navas clearly is a better option to have in the squad. I don't see Mata adding much to the squad off the bench, as his much the same as the other options, whereas Navas is terrifying running at defenders - especially ones tired in the heat!


    I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the Dutch squad - it looks ripe for crashing out in the group stages to me. The defense is going to be really poor.

    Nah, not sold on Azpilicueta. Fair play, he got better as the season progressed, but at too many times he just looked lost and surprised and out of sorts. I was amazed The Smiling One stuck with him, to be honest. He certainly looked better under the 12-13 season's coaching teams, I thought.

    The Dutch... difficult to say. We don't get Eredivisie on .za tv any more, so a lot of these guys I've only seen in friendlies and qualifiers and can't say much more about. I will admit they're not exactly all household names... looks like I might have to find an Argentina shirt sooner rather than later!

    Re: Football World Cup 2014

    Azpi was playing at left back for the first ever time remember! He will be better once he gets back on the right, although Juanfran and Alba might start ahead of him anyway.

    I just found out I am in Amsterdam the day of the world cup final, so I do hope the Dutch do well! The squad is very young and the group is so tough - if they get out they will be doing well, so I guess there is not that much pressure on them. Still knowing the Dutch, they will probably all fight each other if anything goes slightly wrong.

    Interesting stats:

    Current World Cup Champions: Spain
    Current European Champions: Spain
    Current CL Champions: Real Madrid
    Current Europa League Champions: Seville

    That’s quite amazing.

    It's not 2014 news, but it's really starting to look likely that Qatar will have the 2022 world cup taken away from them (http://www.theguardian.com/football/...med-bin-hammam). This is great news, what with all the deaths the stadium has caused and the laws regarding homosexuality out there, but it leaves a huge question as to who can take it now.

    Thinking about it there are only a few nations that could take it on and they are either nations that have hosted it in the past few years (Brazil, S. Africa, Germany, S. Korea and Japan, France and USA) and I doubt many of them would want to take it on, with the exception of USA. I guess if Australia could show they could build it now, they would get it as they were second before. But perhaps England will be given it as the stadiums are all sitting (Wembley, the Emirates, Etihad, the Olympic stadium, Old Trafford all ready and a few others like Anfield, Villa Park, St. James and St. Mary's all needing work to get to world cup standard, but close) and with decent infrastructure for it.

    I think we were given only 6.5 years to get ready for ours, and pretty much all the stadia needed to be built from scratch.

    If FIFA vote now, and the nations who were keen still are keen given the current financial climate, there is plenty of time to be ready. To be fair, I don't think Qatar was the best idea in the first place.

    I liked this part of the article:
    the new revelations "called the governance of football into question"
    Fifa, corrupt and following their own agenda? In other news, water is wet.

    Re: Football World Cup 2014

    Aye you got it in 2004, but its constantly the case that it's too short a time period to get things ready. While you don't want much more time given for it as people will just not get things done, a little longer than that is needed - especially if you have to improve things like transport and hospitality. I remember there was a mad rush on in S. Africa and right now there is a crazy rush on with Brazil with 3 stadiums are unfinished, but its just silly things rather than seating or safety stuff, and airports not being ready for the numbers coming in and moving about.

    This is FIFA, so it will take them at least 2 years to decide to do anything! Still I hope Australia gets it, they always do an amazing job with international sports events and football is way bigger out there than normally spoken about with average A League crowds about ten thousand and much much higher spikes in big games (I think I heard 40k at one game). I mean the club with the lowest average attendance, Wellington, gets more on average than a number of Spanish la liga sides and they obviously get virtually no away fans!

    Re: Football World Cup 2014

    I recall it being busy here during all the construction, but at least in Cape Town the disruptions to daily life weren't massive and we managed okay. I also recall thinking "we'll never be ready in time!" when it was about 2 and a half years to go and the local residents were still trying to mount legal challenges opposing the erection* of the new Green Point stadium here in Cape Town with tons still to do.

    And the residents were stupid to challenge it. There was a stadium there already, about two-thirds the size of the new one, it's not like they were going to build one where beforehand it was pristine peace and quiet. I'm very glad they lost the court battle.

    Can't believe it was 4 whole years ago already, gosh. I remember those two matches I managed to get tickets to like it was just three months ago. It was cold and pissing with rain for Italy-Paraguay and we froze our arses off in the stands waiting for the thing to start, dripping wet from the run from the car-park to the Civic Center to catch the shuttle buses to Green Point. That was the first Monday of the tournament, a typical day in the middle of our winter.

    Four days later we had England-Algeria. It was clear, surprisingly mild for June, and we were able to walk to the stadium from the convention center where we'd parked, about 3km down the fan walk with 60 000 other people from all over the world and all sorts of carnivalesque-things happening around us, instead of taking the shuttle buses like we had for the Italy game. And to think that just 2 years earlier we had hardly started building - a truly magnificent effort all round. I do hope Brazil's is as memorable for them as ours was for us, and that it goes off without a hitch.

    Re: Football World Cup 2014

    This is the time of the season that the sport gets seen on the tube at our house. The simple reason is that the mom likes to watch "the best", and nothing else.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Hope you enjoy it. Good to see the US qualified. Difficult to see them progress out of Group G however.

    Yeah it's a big shame, I was looking forward to seeing that French side. He was the big star for them, even more so with Nasri being removed from selection, but I am sure Cabella and Griezmann will make their mark on the cup now. They have a super easy group and potentially nice 2nd round match (if they win their group) and if they get a good bit of form going they could do well. That midfield three of Cabaye, Pogba and Matuidi will do very well and their defense has so much promise.


    The real big worry for me now is the Ox getting fit in time, he always looks really good and powerful for England and is probably one of our biggest threats.

    No kidding. But just being there should boost popularity in the US, where in some places it's already overtaken American football.

    Aye in Seattle they are getting average crowds bigger than a lot of the top of the top divisions in Europe with 44,038! Portland is quite far behind with about 20k for home games, but that is still bigger than some premier league clubs. The standard has gone up a lot, to the point where I have even watched it on the internet during the times when European football is off!

    Oh yeah they will go out in the group stage sadly but they are building something decent out there - I just wish they would not buy in aging players from Europe as it will never work!

    Still me using crowd and viewing figures should not be taken as that important as South African league is in the top ten most watched divisions in the world!


    Sad to see Reus is now out of the world cup, people are dropping like flies at the moment!

    Yep. Though I was thinking more on a middle school and high school level. Both where my niece and some cousins live, soccer-football has more kids playing and more fans, at both those levels. On top of that, one district in the area made the news recently when they actually discussed eliminating the American football program, as it cost several times more (IIRC the number was 7 times) and had less than half as may students participating! (Unfortunately, I don't remember how that turned out.)

    Is it just me, or is there a higher injury rate going on?

    It does make me think of an argument I caught on the tube, several talking heads disputing which variety of football was more risky. The impression I got is that there are, in school sports anyway, more injuries in soccer-football, but that rarely are they as severe as in American football. I can believe that; when I was in high school, there were broken legs, broken arms, cracked ribs, torn knees, broken wrists, and concussions! (We didn't have soccer-football yet then.)

    I don't know about higher, but going into a world cup it is standard. They have all played a full season and are tired and thus injuries happen a little bit more often.

    As for which is more risky - its hard to say. In American Football, as in rugby, the hits tend to be on parts of the body that are a bit stronger - so lots of hits to the body. Also you have the padding which helps to minimize the injuries Soccer on the other hand tends to have most of its injuries on the legs, which is a lot easier to snap or muscles will rip on them. All the injuries you listed happen pretty often on the soccer field, so its hard to say. But I just think legs go a lot easier, and thus you will get a lot more injuries.

    ^Sad that it was in a friendly for Reus with less than a week to go. I suspect he won' be doing much for Dortmund for some time. From a related Gunners' perspective, hopefully the injury to Oxlade-Chamberlain really is only two weeks on the sidelines for him.

    Yeah, we just got to the end of a really dull 0-0 against Honduras and they asked Hodgson about Ox. He said he would make the cup for certain and should be ready for Italy - so very good news there.

    Lallana looks to be a skillful and intelligent player. Could make an impact.

    Best team never to have won the World Cup? The Brazil side of 1982!

    Yeah his a really good technical player - it will be interesting to see how he does. Barkley is really pushing him though, he looked just as good when he came on! Although perhaps he tries to do a bit much every time he gets the ball and thus gives the ball away an awful lot.

    Only a team I have seen in video, but they looked amazing. Shame that the final was not France v Brazil that year as they were the best teams out there! It was also the last time the UK had 3 home nations at a world cup - probably never happen again...

    ^As always, Southampton about to get plundered yet again by the bigger teams.

    I'll be surprised if Lambert, Lallana, Shaw or Schneiderlin are still there in August.
