World Cup Draw and Hopes For The summer

Before I get into all the details of the world cup draw tomorrow, or today, depending on when you read this, I just want to make one thing abundantly clear. I want a difficult group, in fact, bring on the group of death, a name I am sure the media will gleefully attach to a group resembling the so called favourites. If England, and their fans for that matter, are already quaking in their F50′S about the prospect of playing Mexico, France and the elephants from the Ivory Coast (that is their nickname, I’m not being rude), then we may as well leave our bags unpacked.

England have to beat the best to be the best. Which brings me nicely onto my next point. The “best sides” seem to be Spain, Brazil, Germany, the normal foe. But has anyone seriously entertained the though of Hiddink and Maradonna teaming up to unlock the best out of a faltering Argentinian team. Or perhaps the muscular frames of the Ghanaian’s can spring a few surprises? I have not, and will not, jump blindly onto the rowling bandwagon that is the clamour for a Spanish victory or a Brazilian samba to the title. I truely believe, in my football heart of hearts, that somebody unexpected will triumph next summer, hence my £5 flutter on Drogba and the boys when I last frequented Ladbrokes (which isnt often).

South Africa gets ready for the draw

Wherever you are tomorrow, enjoy the draw and get predicting. But please, I beg of you, don’t sit quivering in front of the TV with your charm beads out, rabbit feet and four leaf clovers adorning your sitting room, hoping and praying for Algeria, New Zealand and South Korea (they may be a tricky one). No, be brave, lets all be muttering the names of the big guns. Bring em on!!
