World Cup 2010 Day 9: World Cup Buzz Podcast

wc buzz2 World Cup 2010 Day 9: World Cup Buzz Podcast

The Netherlands are the first team to have clinched a place in the second round, beating Japan, while Cameroon is the first be eliminated at World Cup 2010 after losing to Denmark. Also, we discuss Ghana only getting one point from 10-man Australia when myself, Laurence McKenna, and Kartik Krishnaiyer engage in a special edition of the World Cup Buzz Podcast, where we take some time at the end of the show to reflect on how media is coming to grips with the shrinking soccer world.

    I’m sure the English pundits are shitting themselves with the thought that Kartik doesn’t think they know what they’re talking about.

    Maybe BBC and ITV should dump their pundits and get Kartik in. He seems to be the all knowing of the football world. The American Indian that thinks he knows everything, now i’ve heard it all

    Maybe it’s just that you don’t know what the f**k you’re talking about, have you ever thought of that?

    This show and this site is becoming a joke, it belongs in the U.S. That football power and source of all knowledge on the game.

  2. Darren says:

    This show is a freaking joke and needs to be canceled. That diatribe started by Farley continued by Krishnaiyer and concluded by McKenna attacking England supporters is way out of line and indecent for airing.

    FACT- We know football better than the Yanks, who call the game by the bastardized term for association football, soccer. We do not need stinking Yanks to pontificate to us about our flaws. You should worry about your own sports. Your national side is joke coming from CONCACRAP. You never would qualify from Europe. Krishnaiyer alleged Algeria has players that would make the England team? How many Algerians play for the top clubs? How many even play for clubs we have heard of? I did not see one quality player for Algeria in the game. Every single player on England is better.

    FACT: McKenna be embarrassed for yourself not your country. We invented this game and unlike the Spanish and the Portuguese we do not drop over when someone breathes on us. We are not racist but we play the game the way it is meant to be played. Self hating Brits are the ones who allow us to be defeated. Just admit you like Ireland like all Lousypool fans and get on with it.

    FACT: Farley drones on about the Asian and South American nations, but other than Brazil or Argentina, who has ever won anything or created a league like we have? We have the best league in the world and the best football in the world. People do not go to Japan or Korea to learn football or watch the best, they come to England.

    Gaffer has also aligned himself with the Yanks who are jealous of our success and realize they will never approach the level of quality we have in our side. They want their “soccer” team to beat England but it will never happen. Your best player, Donovan would not even be considered for our team.

    I have unsubscribed to this podcast on ITunes, will be leaving negative feedback and suggesting all Englishmen boycott this anti-English product.

    I dare Krishnaiyer to get through a show without attacking England. Italy happens to have half the talent of England. Old worn down Cannavaro and Pirlo would be nowhere near this England squad, and I could not even tell you who their strikers are. That is how irrelevant they are and how little they compare to our team. Rooney, Lampard, Gerrard and Terry would be the four best players on Italy or Krishnaiyer and Farley’s beloved Germany! Who has even heard of Oziel or Khedaria before last week? A naturalized Brazlian as a striker? They cannot even produce their own players anymore.

    • “Who has even heard of Oziel or Khedaria before last week?”

      First of all, it would have taken 30 seconds to look up the names of those players so that you could spell them correctly. Second of all, I’d heard of both of those players 3 years ago.

      These guys might be over the top about England’s shortcomings, but let’s be honest. Not only have England not accomplished much on the international stage recently, but neither have players playing in the Premier League. The 1998 World Cup champions had 4 players who played in the Premier League, with only one of them, Henry, being one of their major stars. More of the Euro 2000 squad came from the Premier League, but the squad still came, from the most part, from other leagues. The 2002 World Cup champions didn’t have a single player in the Premiership. The Euro 2004 champions had only two players applying their trade in England. The 2006 World Cup champions did not have a single player playing in the Premiership. The Euro 2008 Champions had four players from the Premier League, two of which have since moved on to La Liga. The most recent Copa America champions had 3 players from the Premiership, only one of whom played significant minutes. The implication that the English Premier League does not prepare players for international competition is not unfair based on this evidence.

    Although I’m HUGE fan of his… Why did Kartik Krishnaiyer chime in with a general condemnation of the “Anglo-AMERICAN” culture… after Lawrence made some interesting comments about racist overtones in the English media?

    Where exactly does the American media/culture fit in with this supposed lack of respect for burgeoning non-white-non-European football powers?

    In fact, the American media has no pretension to a sophisticated knowledge of the game and certainly shouldn’t be lumped in with the UK tabloid press. That whole culture of tabloid hysteria simply does not/can not exist in the US (especially when it comes to soccer)….I think Kartik, who reads the Guardian with his morning coffee (decaffeinated, no doubt), is fantasizing that the US and the UK have something in common besides the language…when they do NOT…the American media has nothing in common with the “jingoism” that may exist in European football coverage. Heck, European nations all live next door to each other and do have some sense that national pride is at stake in these football matches…

    Anyway, that’s nothing to do with the US…If some American player happens to blunder into an own-goal at the WC, he doesn’t have to fear for his life…That’s why I’m glad soccer is a “boutique” sport in the US, we don’t need to share the overwrought world passion for football…

    Keep up the great work!
