Six comments for a Monday...

1. The bin next to my desk seems to be overflowing with empty Volvic and Evian bottles. It was empty on Friday.

2. Nine Inch Nails is best played LOUD!

3. I've been good and haven't mentioned the World Cup here once. I have however seen every match so far and have often been texting/phoning Mr Torley about the games as they are happening and then comparing notes on his LJ afterwards.

4. I still think my pre-tournament predictions of Mexico and Czech Republic both doing well are very valid assumptions.

5. It may be hot and sticky but I love the summer. Could do with getting some more fans in the shop though...

6. That's all. G'night!

My predictions for the game last Saturday were well out. I predicted a 2-2 draw with Paraguay.
I hear that Sweden had a bit of trouble with Trinidad & Tobago, so that should be a help as well. Esp as we haven't beaten Sweden in 25 years or something like that so I don't hold out much hope here.
I'm predicting 3-1 to us against T&T and 1-0 to Sweden when we play them.

It doesn't look like the US will go on to win as I feared they might (I will never hear the end of it from certain sources if they do). I think your Czech Republic prediction may well be a good one.

If we beat T&T then the result against Sweden doesn't really matter - apart from deciding who we play in Round 2.

If we've qualified by the time we play Sweden I can see us resting some players and fielding a slightly weakened team. If this is the case we could loose 1-0, but if not then I think we'll get at least a draw off them (as usual...:p)

How 'bout that Oz soccer team then?! Who'd have thunk they would score a single goal - let alone *three* - in any of the games from their group!

the big issue, which no one has really realised yet is that Australia NEVER gives up.

I have NO IDEA how many times they have grabbed victory from NZ's hand - in Rugby, Netball, Soccer... they can be miles away and in that last 5 - 10 minutes make that nightmare comeback.

They are probably one of the only countries that can actually play a full game, and never despair!

Re: I hate to be a bore but....
I just rang her and she says she definetly wants the ticket and will give you a ring today.

I thought she'd already contacted you as I gave her your number a couple of weeks back when you asked.

Take care, hope you have a cracking gig, and to catch up with you myself at somepoint soon :)
