Thanks Perry.

I'll print it out and give it to my son this morning. He is a mad fan of the Aussie Socceroos.

Though I see they are up against Germany in Durban in their first match.

Hi everybody, how are you all doing? I haven't posted here for a while but here's a bit of an update on the 2010 FIFA World Cup video game!

It is due for release on the 27th April in North America, with the rest of the world following on the 30th April and will be on formats.

In a first for a World Cup game, it will feature every single nation that competed in the World Cup qualifiers this year. That is 199 out of 208 recognised nations. Bhutan, Central African Republic, Eritrea, Guam and Sao Tome & Principe are the five FIFA affiliates who declined to enter qualification, while Brunei, Laos, Papua New Guinea and Philippines will also not be included as they pulled out mid-qualification.

Also as this is a football thread (and I've been using any excuse to tell people this!) my local team Stevenage Borough have become champions of the Blue Square Premier and thus will become a Football League team for the first time in their history, entering in League Two (three divisions below the Premier League), this mean they will now be a fixture in the FIFA football video game series!

As the World Cup edges closer and we see the beautiful game and it's most glam, I think it may be a good time to reflect on the game at it's most beautiful, as one of the best methods of communication and one of the best practices in peace that this world can offer.

As such, there are two documentaries I recommend, this is the first of the two.


This is The Other Final. This documents the run-up to a friendly match played in Thimphu on the same day as the 2002 FIFA World Cup final. Instead of being Brazil vs. Germany in the biggest game of them all however, it was played between the two lowest-ranked national teams in the world, Bhutan and Montserrat. It shows how two extremely different cultures managed to bond over a shared love of football.

The second one I will post in the next few days if you would like me to. Without giving too much away, the next documentary is a more emotionally charged, touching and at times harrowing look at grassroots football, and coincidentally, like The Other Final, also has a strong Buddhist current flowing throughout, in fact, I'd say much more!

Not long until the big game tonight! England vs. United States.

There are some (unfortunate) rumours going around that the majority of the American support are planning on booing God Save The Queen because of the BP issue. If true I find this highly disappointing. None of the players, and 99.99% of England fans around the world, have had no direct impact on what has happened, and while I empathise with what happened, I bear no personal guilt over it either.

Any predictions? It will be a very close game. England have the edge but I think it will either be a 1-0 to England or a 1-1 draw. I would be more confident if it wasn't our opening games, but as it is, anything can happen.

He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'

It's not likely to be the next World In Motion, or Three Lions, but maybe the next Cicciolina.

Hello Annapurna, Moggalana, all,

This is only the third World Cup that Australia has played in. Both the others were in Germany. Although we are chiefly a cricket and rugby nation, we'll give it our best shot :popcorn: :

3-1 to Germany. Australia were unlucky not to be drawn against a mediocre England side with individually outstanding players who have never meshed as a team. They may well have taken a very big scalp.
