And we are back with the WC 2010!

On saturday, we met at Willy's for our monthly gathering of drinks, Ustaad's kebabs and Dominic's blabber. We comprised of Willy (duh! it was his house), MM, Dom and me. As usual, as the night wore on, our conversation came back time and again to football and the quadrennial World Cup. As usual, we fought over how the seeding takes place to why Drogba is a cunt. Not in Dominic's eyes though. In Dominic's eyes, Drogba is a giant gay penis that fucks every team in the ass. 

Well anyway, to celebrate the mega event, S.C.O.F.F. will bring you posts with images this time (APPLAUSE). So no more darb articles on how this loser leads his life and lost his butt virginity. S.C.O.F.F. will bring you expert insights, news, interviews and great articles. Well actually, we are just bringing one of our old features in a new Avatar. No, EW is not going to be painted in blue and named Moron of the Match. 

For a start and to mark the x number of hours left for the tournament to begin, let's dwell in to the minds of the experts that gathered on that fateful Saturday night and shed light on who they thought will be crowned world champions. 

Let's start with Dominic. Atom-Dom as he is fondly called, cannot look beyond Lampard, Chelsea and England. Ask traumatized bride and good friend Dipti, at whose weeding AD just got up at random intervals to shout LAMPARD, LAMPARD and CHELSEA CHELSEA. I was embarrassed and wanted him dead, so did Dipti. He has no particular reason why England will win, except for that fact that they are England. How typical of them English fans!

We don't think AtomD will celebrate in the end.

Willy & I: Both of us have come to a consensus and considering how rarely people in our group agree, this one might just turn out to be right. Our theory if that the world champions will either be Argentina or the Netherlands. Both the national teams have unparalleled firepower. Argentina have Messi, Kun, Champions League hero Milito, Tevez, Real Madrid goal machine Higuin as their forwards. Netherlands have the sublime van Persie, workhorse Kyut and Sneijder to pull the strings. The defense is nothing to write home about for both the teams but both teams can pass opponents to death and can outscore even when they are not up to their game.

Willy and I will root for Argentina but have a sneaky feeling that there are two teams to look out for

MM: Miracle Monger will not be around for the WC and thats why he doesn't really care. He knows one thing though. He is dead sure that the Italians, a team that he supported since a child, will not make it. Why, in this day and age of blind support is he saying such a thing? The reason being, Lippi has not taken any proper no 10's along with him. Pirlo a defensive minded playmaker and the heartbeat of the Italian midfield is injured and will be watching the group stages from the stands. Not a great way to start for the Azzuri. When stressed to pick a team, he too couldn't decide between Argentina and the Netherlands. But added that we could never count Brazil out. But who the fuck supports them anyway!

MM has shown his butt to the Azzuris

Except for AtomD, the rest of us agreed on one point - Either Argentina or van Persie. Opps! Argentina or the Netherlands. Sorry that was my love for everything Arsenal. But the point to note is that something astounding happened in all these years - more than two SCOFFERs  agreed on something. It's a rarity, unlike the world cup. At least that comes once in four years. Have a good one folks. Drink and cheer as loud as possible. 

P.S.: I know you guys may not believe it, but I will, starting from tomorrow, blog daily till the WC ends. Cheers!

Mr. Pais

Thanks for reminding :) I actually meant a weekly post. LOL! But seriously, I couldn't fulfill the promise because of work commitments. Can't watch the 12 games too because of work.
