5 games played so far, 5 completely boring games......!!!!!!

The last world cup in Germany started with a barrowload of goals and was an excellent tournament.

So far, this has been boring.


Anyone think its gonna get any better? Never thought i'd say this but cant wait til the new SPL season starts!

Apart from France game i have thought the games have been alright. Both the Argies and England played good football.

And as a fellow Rangers fan i am looking forward to next season at all. :oops:

Nah the games have been good with the exception of the french match! An you cant exactly say youve been spoiled on quality football watching SPL can you

I think it's being alright so far; there are certainly a couple of higher gears that the football can find.

I do hate to say it but the vuvuzelas are putting a major dampener on it for me. I have no problem with them being part of the national tradition, but the fact is they kill any sort of football atmosphere and replace it with a headache inducing drone.

The Veuz... horn things aint doing nothing to the atmosphere if anything they are creating an atmosphere, ifthe world cup was in europe some matches like south korea greece would have no atmosphere. At least they give osme sort of atmosphere.

Atmosphere?! Are you kidding me? Would you call a load of crying babies on an aeroplane an atmosphere? Because it's the same thing - it's just annoying, horrible noise that adds nothing.

You couldn't even hear the England fans earlier because of those stupid horns, you won't be able to hear ANYTHING, there will be no individual atmospheres or anything now - just the same old annoying crap.
#17
I said it in another thread, this world cup is only gonna be remembered for that god awful racket. No atmosphere to any game whatsoever.

Have to say I agree. It drowns out any attempt for the fans to get behind their team. No way of telling whats happening. Was watching James Cordens football follow up programme which suggested that if a single vuvuzela was thrown on the pitch they would be banned. Heres hoping :p

I don't think anyone's watching it anyway because they can't stand the sound of those south african didgeridoos

correct - I have stopped watching it already cos of those damn horns!

Regarding the football, world cups always get off to a slow start as teams cannot afford to lose so expect a lot of dull draws for the first two games in the group stage. The third game and knock out will be different.

Regarding the horns, I can't make my mind up as said above they probably improve the games with little atmosphere but are not required at games that do not need it like last night.

I wouldn't want to be sat next to the blowers though and can't understand why they feel the need to constantly blow them and not just to show appreciaiton as we do with clapping / cheering.

I wonder whether the other countries fans feel the same way as us miserable brits about them?

Yes they do. The dutch tv stations have received a large number of complaints and they are pressing fifa to get them banned / reduced. Aint gonna happen though.

Fair enough :thumbsup:

Found this

But not everyone is embracing them with shops in Cape Town running out of "vuvu-stopper" earplugs.

"I could have sold 300 pairs of earplugs yesterday if I'd had the stock, and the same today, but I've only got 200 pairs and that's just about finished," one local shopkeeper said.

"We can't keep up," added the owner, who has ordered 1,000 more.

Another said they ran out last week.

"We're already deaf," she said.

The earplugs, marketed as the "Vuvu-Stop", have a label on the back of the packet which reads: "Highly effective noise reduction. Uses include soccer, rugby, or for couch potatoes to block out your wife's moaning."

Any ideas what we can come up with if we get the 2018 competition.

blimey! imagine paying thousands to go and watch an england match only to have to put in ear plugs!

apparently, they can reach 144 decibels which would make you deaf after a few hours I expect.

Would ruin the whole match for me. In the pub last night a couple of ppl had some loud horns, really annoying. I wana listen to the match. Most ppl who have them are just drunks who shout "ENGERRRLANDDD" randomly, even after the opposition have scored.

its the group stages ffs:roll:

Welcome to the World Cup ......

Its the football version of the Eurovision Song Contest - what were you expecting?

i think the only crap game has been the france one, no high scoring games but the football has been good and as for the vevuzelas, i quite like them lol i think they add to the atmosphere i didnt even realise they were there untill halfway through the england match, already used to them :lol:

Cant see how they add to the atmosphere. Cant hear chanting, drums etc..... Just a contstant noise, it's rubbish, sounds like a load of bees behind my TV. Players have complained and managers. I can understand having them for SA games but not other games, its a joke.

Found this about them as well

" The vuvuzela, which sounds similar to a foghorn if blown properly, has a history as colourful as the garish shades it comes in.

It is said to be based on the horn of the kudu antelope, which some tribes in South Africa traditionally used to call villagers to meetings, and which Matabele warriors used to send signals over long distances.

Their popularity at football matches purportedly derives from a South African legend that baboons can be killed by loud noises, giving fans added incentive to blow their vuvuzelas constantly in an attempt to “kill off” the opposing team "
