Well they firstly care about their performance at FIFA WC

Poulter is a good player, he hasnt won enough for his talent but he's the first guy i'd have in Ryder cup matchplay, he's been one of the best players for us in that comp many times

Is that why they're slipping down the FIFA rankings list? Bad time for the country to go into a sports slump.

Petrobras will make sure that money is pumped in.

We'll see how they'll perform there. One thing is sure-it will be national tragedy if they dont win the WC.

This is basically a party. Too much of this country's shit exports. One Direction, Jessie J, these no-marks don't deserve to be there. I can see why they've done it this way. The opening ceremony was so fantastic they were never touching it.
Damon shits over Noel and Liam

Fair play, the BBC have given us about 4 hours of that prior to the show. So maybe thats down to other broadcasters.

Re: Olympic Games 2012 London Thread (All other sports besides tennis)

I didn't like either the opening nor the closing ceremony but it doesn't matter.
It have been fantastic 17 days and London provided very good organization, great sporting facilities and great atmosphere.
Thank you!

Rio is gonna be a non-stop carnival

Good bye, London hello, Rio

That song from Stardust is great

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better
