The WC is 8 days away while our first match will be played in 10 days. How are you all going to be spending the WC? Where will you be watching the matches? What sort of good charms will you deploy in front of the TV set while Argentina is playing? How many of you will be wearing Argentina jerseys or the like ?

Let the party begin. Let's talk about how we'll be living or lives until June 30th!!! :)

And of course VAMOS ARGENTINA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice thread Czar :cool: (as always;))
As for me, I simply cannot wait for it to start anymore. I am going NUTS! :excited: :D Majority of the matches will start at 12:30pm in the afternoon here....and guess what?;) My classes in my university end at 12:15:D I will have to make a run for my home immediately after the classes end and hope not to miss the kick-offs:)
I will be trying to gather friends from my class to watch the games with me (not too many of them are football fanatics like me in my country:() and hope to make this WC the first one that I will be watching with people. I have watched the previous 3 WCs at the dead of the night absolutely alone (not that that isn't exciting in a different way;))
As for good charms, I don't have any:( I simply pray to God and hope for the best:)
Today I went to the only shop in my country that sells football jerseys in hope of an Argie shirt.......I found one but with the spelling of Cannigia wrong:depress: It was written 'Canegia'! Fools.....:mad: Only consolation was that I found a Lazio jersey of Simeone's and bought it immediately regardless of the fact that the size was much bigger than mine:tongue:

Vamos Argentina! :cool:

Just my luck. The first time all the matches will be broadcast in English and they are all in the middle of the night. I plan and hope to be able to stay awake for all the Argentina matches. I'm already planning not to do much the following day. Too bad we don't get siesta's here.

I have an Argentina scarf, but it looks kind of strange to be wearing a scarf in June!

I usually have some Argentina wine after every win.

Well, nice thread Czar, and guess what, I was going to start it myself :)

To me, you can't imagin how much I am nervous, I am shaking everytime I remember that the WC is coming soon....simply can't imagin anything but winning it....

The matches will start in all of the middle east region at early morning, 9:30 AM , 11:30 AM and 2:30 PM...Argentina will play two of their matches against Negeria and Sweden at the very early date 9:30 AM, and against England at 2:30 PM...but who gives a flying **************** for working in these two early dates :D

You guys can't imagin Assassin when he is watching any kind of matches for Argentina, official or friendly, I keep on shaking and smoking till the end of match.

I have an Argentina jersey I bought it from Egypt, but one of my friend's ( Argentina die - hard fan like me :) ) took it with him when he traveled to Palestine :crybaby:..anyway...I usually set on the chair infront of my TV in my room and start smoking since the 1st minute to the last minute.

Against Holland in 98, I broke a glass of water when Batistuta's shot went directly to hit the goal right bost, I was drinking water then and suddenly threw the glass to the wall. :D...damn my mum thought I had a sudden coma :D

This time will be different, simply coz I will celebrate the win in the last day of the WC ;)

Oh, I forgot to say that my whole friends are brazil fans, so you can imagin what happens when we win it inshallah :D:D:D

I was working when the Argentina-Holland match was going on, i was taking a break and watching the match in between breaks, when Bati's shot hit the post i wantd to pull my hair out, when Ortega was expelled, i yelled and walked out, and walked for like an hour, i knew we wre not going to beat Brazil without him, then someone told me, that Berkamp had scored, and that we were out.

Another bas impression? i couldn't take it, we better win this time..

Believe it or not, for the fist time I will be watching Arg matches with my friends.. as I wtached all their matches starting from Copa 91 and so on ALONE at home, even if my brothers came to watch any match with me, I leave them to wtach it in another room in our house.. (except for Ger match because I was there in the staduim with two of my friends :) ).
For thsi WC, I took a holiday for two months starting from 1st of June to the end of July and I am thinking to extending it till the end of Aug. The matches going to start at 10:30 AM our local time, 11:30 AM or 2:30 PM and most of them at 3:00 PM, so its a good time for me but the wrost WC timings for most of the workers in our country.

well, the same day we lost against holland in the WC 98 my grandmother died. i left the vigil to watch the match, and i remember i thought that i couldnt have more bad news that day so we wouldnt lose, but we all know what happened. it was 4 july.

here in Arg, the matchs will be played at 2:30 am (saturday-nigeria), 8:30 am (wendsday-england), and 6:30 am. (sunday-swe).

working, studying and not sleeping during 40 days will kill me. so we must win, so i can leave earth happy.

For the first time i will be able to watch soccer game at my office
because the game will be show at noon , so i can give my
opinion about the directly except for argentina game.

I will take my day off when argentina play because i want to be
at home to record all seven games until the final.

If argentina win then it will be my best record ever.
So let's pray that the dream come true.

the games will be shows in the middile of the night, here in vancouver canada.:)

I will have to drink alot of coffee or maybe some cold drinks just to stay awake until the game starts. Then I will sleep just enough so I wont be like a zombie the next day;)

I have a friend that will watch the games with me and hopefully we will be celebrating after each argentina game.:)


For 1 month, I will stay up in the night and sleep in the day! Can't wait!


As the World Cup gets closer, I am feeling more and more nervous. I pray to god everything happens like it should and like my signature says, 2002 will be a year to remember.

Guys, i'm so nervours and anxious, can't wait until the WC, but let's not celebrate until we win it, otherways, we could end up as the Inter fans, who were celebrating before they won, and look what happend. But I'm confident, this is the best team we have had in years..

I'm planning to watch these matches in the basement because its at an ungodly hour here in the US. I'll wear my Argentina shirt from 98 (Alternate colors). Everytime someone from my Argentina Tango Dance troupe (you may start snickering now) goes to BsAs, I ask them to buy me something... so I have a collection. But I still don't have the Alberceleste colors shirt. Someone gave me a Porto shirt which I discovered if I wore inside-out looks very much like the correct shirt.

can't you get someone from your tango group to take you along with them on their trips?

As I was reading this thread, I suddenly got a weird thought;)
Imagine each of us in their respective dens watching the matches.....some in broad daylight in their offices, some in their homes, some in TV stations!, some under their blankets in the middle of the night......but one thing that unites us all, maybe not geographically but definitely virtually, is Xtratime. We will all come and post in the match threads and share our views about the same matches that we will watch under different conditions in faraway places......feel's kinda pleasantly eerie:tongue:

Don't know if that made any sense or not!:confused: :embarass: Just felt like letting it out........:angel:
