    I've got pictures I'll post later off how all the stadiums are looking underconstruction and to be fare, they look as good as they do in the artist renders.

    This.

    My dad and I were just about to get tickets for the final, when we did a double take and said: Wait. It's in South Africa, we've been there twice and it's only gotten worse since we were there and even then it was pretty bad.

    And then once the WC is over they will all be drains on their respected cities, and because of the recession they're not even making a good return on their money from the beginning. It was a shitty idea giving this WC to South Africa, even more so given the current economic climate. They've literally had to build from scratch, and all of it will be obsolete in 2011.

    They look brilliant but they probably wont look as good once their built. I mind watching the huns in South Africa in pre-season a couple of years ago and there was about 5 bits of grass on the whole pitch. It looked like they were playing in the middle of the jungle on a bit of dried up mud.

    Not complaining about that one. MLS plays strait through the summer with temperatures in the US regularly getting above 30-35 celsius.

    Erm, I'm pretty sure the government hands them out at entrances for everyone going in to watch the football, you know, for protection.

    Edit:

    Temperature won't be too bad, I mean take a look at how the teams did in South Korea/Japan during the 2002 WC. I think they'll cope, especially since the climate was much worse there with it being extremely hot AND humid. At least in SA it'll just be extremely hot.

    My only concern is that at what time of day the different teams will play in the opening stages. I remember in 2002, Denmark played all 3 of their matches at 12pm with the sun at it's zenith, and those fuckers France played all of their matches at around 8pm in the evening when it was nice and cool, giving them somewhat of an advantage.

    Just realized - it's going to be their winter. Temperature will definitely not be a problem I don't think. Also - to Cristo - European teams tended to suck balls in 2002. Germany made the finals because they were lucky against the US, Turkey is a warm place, the South Koreans made it far, and African countries did really well... like Senegal. So if it was going to be hot I definitely think that would be a factor.
