    For me the most annoying thing about our Swedish commentators is when Teddy Sheringham was still playing, every time the commentator would say "Sheringham, with a past for Djurgarden (stockholm team who Teddy was loaned out to in the 80's)". They said it every time.

    Havent seen Peter Crouch play that many times on Swedish telly but im betting they say "Crouch, with a past for Hassleholm (another swedish team where Crouch was on loan)".

    I think ill try to watch the game on an American on Australian channel to try to ignore the English bias which the commentators spew. If all else fails ill brush up on my spanish and watch it on Spanish or Mexican Tv =D

    a lot, if not most of the announcers on American TV will be English.

    Ahhhhh, I can't wait!!

    Listening to The Beatles with a cold pint, a bit of TH.TV and admiring the work I've done in hoisting the St Geroges flag in my front garden. The poll has been stood there since 2006 cause I thought there was no point taking it down because of the Euros in 2008 . . . . Ahem.

    wouldn't hold my breath on that one buddy.

    It is getting exciting though, maybe more so than any WC since 1990 for me. Every time we're fortunate enough to qualify for a world cup I think about how far the game has come since I saw the US national team play Trinidad and Tobago on a high school (american) football field about 25 years ago.

    Still, I've never been down with the whole USA! USA! thing.
