Israel normally play their home games in Cyrpus don't they? (Or occasionally, and quite oddly, Palermo). Maybe the whole group should just be held on the island, in one easy access tournament a la the Asian groups.

Be great if Palestine made it to the finals, though about as likely as Iraq, which some of you seem to have selected as qualifiers from Asia.

tee-hee, abedi you're going to get quite a reputation if you're not careful.

Israel have been training together every week for ages now. That's surely going to have an effect.

It'll be interesting to see how well France do in a qualifying group with opponents who might register a shot on goal heaven forbid.

I've heard that Israel want to play their home matches in either Nijmegen or Rotterdam.

After seeing Argentina trounce Ecuador last night I seriously doubt they'll qualify from S America. Bolivia, Peru, and Venezuela all looked significantly better than them

I've backed us to qualify (odds were as below)

England 1/5
Wales 7/4
NI 80/1

(RoI 6/4)
(Scotland 11/4)

Now, with all due respect to a team including Darren Barnard and Adi Williams, are they really 30 times more likely? I think not. Get the dunkels in, Plendy!

USA ? Smart Man.

I know how violated everyone felt when we rocked and rolled into the Quarters, so I hope people realize that we're a lock for at least the semis this time around.

I used to work with a guy that hated soccer, and he was a pretty annoying patriot--car flag, bomb Saddam rhetoric, etc.

But he was following the World Cup in 2002 with supreme interest--he wanted the US to win it all, just so we would piss everyone off.

I'd be interested to know which parts of the States take football more seriously than others. Some friends from Washington DC who lived in London for a while told me that the league soccer in that city gets bigger audiences than most other sports, apparently...

There's this one state, which happens to be the best state in the Union, named New Jersey, who is very small but always supplies the National Team, the one that was a Quarterfinalist the last time around, with many, many players.

Basically any team that is near water is good at soccer, and supports it.

1) California
2) New Jersey
3) Virginia
4) Maryland
5) North Carolina
5 1/2) Florida
6) Oregon
7) Ohio (Home of Brad Friedel, and yes, the exception to the rule)
8) Indiana
8 1/2) New York
9) Michigan
10) Georgia
11) South Carolina
12) Texas
13) Washington
14) Massachusetts
15) Connecticutt (used to be higher, but they've done jack lately.)

1) California

In the words of Westside Connection, "bow down".

1) California -- population 35 million
2) New Jersey -- population 8 million
3) Virginia -- population 7 million
4) Maryland -- population 5 million.

That says it all, really.

Hey JV, back when you were riffing about Clifton, you missed the fact that former Clifton coach (something) Rossi's kid Guiseppi (a Clifton native) has been signed by Man Utd from Parma. Unfortunately, it looks like he's more interested in playing for the Azzuri than us, despite growing up in beautiful NJ.

Hmmmm, I'll have to look into that. Hopefully it's because the father despised the politics of the Olympic Development Program and the National Team, and would rather his son take his chances with a program that would hire a coach like Trappahasbeen. It's absolutely sick at how many coach's kids make the state or regional team, or talented players don't make it because they don't have the connections or the $300 to pay to play.

Anyway, here's a top 5 of New Jersey High Schools:

1) St. Benedicts - Claudio Reyna, Tab Ramos, Greg Berhalter.
2) Kearney - John Harkes, Tony Meola
3) Harrison - New Metros Stadium
4) Clifton - Danny Szelta
5) Shawnee - 7 Group IV State Titles

Yankee thread-jackers, go home.

This thread is surely about the total self-delusion of OTFers, a good percentage of whom seem to think that Australia will beat the fifth-placed South American team home and away.

This is as likely as Sir Alec Ferguson replacing Sven as England manager.
