its one of the first world cup previews and deserves the front one approving?

You know, this is the first World Cup since 2002 that I have very little interest in. Just not feeling it, you know, that excitement and buildup.

Your excitement is less because of those damn vuvuzelas from last World Cup isn't it? ;)

Bite your tongue - those damn things made for a horrific World Cup in South Africa.. there's a special place in Hell for the inventor of those!

you guys think Brazil will win it at home?..they certainly have the star power.

They have a fantastic chance to win and I am certain they are the favorites to do so, but I am still not convinced they can. They have a pretty easy group stage so I think more information will be needed until people can truly call them contenders. Croatia is a stubborn team and can frustrate the best of them..Mexico is a wild card and can either be total crap or total class and beat Brazil...Cameroon can frustrate them a bit with their pace and perhaps can tire out some of the Brazil stars ahead of the bigger matches. Either way, Brazil is at home and that will be a massive boost...semi-finals, at the least.

I think they will emulate the 2002 winning team..they have shades of that side and the same manager.
