World Cup 2010: Four Years In The Making

It’s here Kickettes! We made it! To coin a phrase from our girl Lainey, it’s Jumpy Claps all round.

Are you freaking out? We. Totes. Are.

We started anticipation-eating last night, and we plan on gaining at least a stone in solid liquorice nibs by the time this is over.

We’ve got lots of fun stuff to get to today, including our own WC(!) predictions, but let’s start things off by getting straight down to business.

Here’s what we’re asking our legion of footy-mad, footy-clever and footy-fantastic readers:

1. Who do you think will win the World Cup this year?

2. Who do you want to win the World Cup this year?

3. Where will you be watching the games?

Here’s what we really want to know:

4. Which player? If you had to choose. Just one. And you know exactly what we’re talking about.

Talk to us, ladies.

Don’t forget to visit the community and join in some of our buzzing World Cup conversations and message boards:

-We’ve got the World Cup 2010 Predictions Game, where you can make your predictions for the group stages;

-The World Cup Fever Thread – all things World Cup related;

- And if you’re up for a spot of ‘Baller Bingo, here’s where to go.

    1. Argentina

    2. Spain

    3. At home, with my footie-mad family, on our new humongous HDTV, bought especially for the World Cup!

    4. Cristiano Ronaldo. It's not so much the amazing looks, it's the attitude. That, and that he's being bitchy about the vuvuzelas. Scourge of mankind.

  2. Rusty (Mrs Clemens Fritz) says:

    My Feilhaber shirt is STILL not here, plus I’d like to add Mesut Özil to number four. Not hot on Bremen, OH SO HOT on the GNT. A bit young for me, though.

  3. Nikki says:

    1)Spain/Germany/Brazil/Holland/Argentina
    2)Spain

    Joining the majority, Spain

    Wish would win, Slovenia.

    The wee country that could. There is some fine eye candy there as well kickettes. Watch them while you can! They are atop their group for this brief moment at least.

    As for One man, there is one man only, Iker. Say no more.

    3 – Home; otherwise for important matches – Red Bull Arena or an appropriate bar in NYC

    3. I'll be watching from San Francisco and then the Cote d'Azur.

    4. I'm married, so I'm going intellectual here: I'd actually really like to meet Landon Donovan. I've always had the feeling he was a bit too smart to be a "great" footballer. I watched a Studio 90 interview with him and he was asked which 2010 World Cup player he'd most like to have lunch with: he said one of the North Korean players.

  33. Ella says:

    1. Either Brazil/Spain/Netherlands probably will win.

    3. home
    4. absolute tie between bocanegra and fabregas, i could never choose. (although i would also settle for pique. or edson buddle. or casillas. or post-haircut higuain. or roque santa cruz.)

  36. p4ng says:

    1. Spain! GO SPAIN!

    2. Spain :b

      • MrsNesta says:

        Not sure France have turned up yet!, Yeh senora ramos Henry didn't protest too much about the handball LOL I'm stressed enough as it is and then I find Kickette changed, not coping with much lately!!!!!! Just counting down to the match tonight, good luck to all!!!!! BUT COME ON ENGLAND!!!!!!

        • senora ramos says:

          gameday my english friends. here's to a great match, no injuries, and an american win, of course :D COME ON YOU YANKS!

          • Thea says:

            Good to see your in good spirits Ramos – I am struggling, finding it really hard to be out in Dubai when all this is going around me! I know it's work – but it's hard having a beer in a hotel room and not with your friends at times like these!!

    Who do you think will win the WC? Spain.
    Who do you want to win the WC? Argentina.
    Where will you watch the games? At a friend’s house and our local.
    Which player? I would say Mr. Casillas but there’s so much competition for him now so I’m going to go with my Arsenal fav Mr. Van Persie.. :)

  42. TristaJade says:

    1.) I really have a feeling about Spain this year. ;)
    2.) I would LOVE for the USA to be able to pull a Hail-Mary and win it. Maybe wishful thinking, maybe not…*shrugs* :D
    3.) GameCast on ESPN at work, on TV at home or on my computer. Might go out to a bar tomorrow to catch the USA-England game with some fellow World Cup fanatics.
    4.) There are too many!!!! a.) Cristiano – guilty pleasure b.) Carlos Bocanegra – our captain is hawt…just damn. c.) Benny Fabulous Hotness Feilhaber. Hmmm, and maybe add Yoann to that, because I’m selfish like that. :D

    P.S. – Love to see the Kickettes loving some US players!!!

    1- Argentina (there are not the favorite but a good outsider, a great way to play, plus they have the most beautiful jersey

    2- France (I'm French, and I do not believe we will win, but good supporters cheer up their team even if their worst moments, don't they?)

    3- at home, at a friend's or in a pub (any place where the beer is cheap and the atmosphere is fun, indeed!)

    4- ….

    err, how can you pick only one… I think I will watch some games before I can choose so that I don't miss any player who does not usually get media exposure.

    Or Gourcuff, as he seems not to be liked by the other French NT players, if he needs some comfort, I am here anytime!

    3. Home, work, uni, bar, cafe – depends on where I am at that particular moment.. I’m not gonna miss a single important match I’ll tell you that much!!
    4. Lashes + all of the Barca players + all of the Spanish NT players + all of the argentinian NT players + …
    Hey you know what.. I’m not that picky I’ll just take them all!! ;)
