    I'm going to be looking out for Australia cos a Swindon Town player has made the squad. Only the 3rd Town player to go be selected for a World Cup ever!

    I got Uruguay in the work sweepstake.

    Someone is probably sitting there reading questions to him. Probably a judicious bit of scrolling going on.

    "What are you scrolling past?"
    "What? Oh, um, nothing Alan, just pictures of cats"
    "Oh, I like cats..."
    "NO!"

    I looked at the world cup thingy pull-out in the free evening standard yesterday evening. Why did they use Bosnia & Herzegovina's old flag?? :confused: they changed it 16 years ago! OUTRAGEOUS

    Innit :D I'd seen on Facebook that she'd managed to get to Rio and was thinking "how the hell did they manage that?", as I know the station isn't exactly massive. Now we know :cool:

    It is being reported in Brazil that Dilma (the president) will not be attending any more matches (she'll be at the final I bet) because of the abuse she received during the opening match.

    People who were at the match are saying it was only coming from the VIP area and spread to the high price seats, not really news if that is true as the rich don't like Dilma as she has carried on Lula's work and increased payments to the poor and the minimum wage.

    8 games played and 28 goals. Averaging 3.5 goals per game is pretty decent.
