    Because Zidane did his thigh in pre-tournament and Pires wrecked his cruciate.

    They went into that tournament with the top scorer in Ligue Un (Djibril Cisse), Serie A (David Trezeguet) and the Premier League (Thierry Henry) and scored 0 goals.

    The ****ing "Brasilllll, Braaaaasssillllll" segments that played every time there was an advertisment break were just terrible.

    As mentioned in the other thread, I am not sure if Cannavaro being a pundit is so bad it's good, or just bad. Don't mean to belittle his English speaking abilities, he can speak English a lot better than I can speak Italian for sure, but he was actually incomprehensible at some points during the show.

    Not something I will be participating in, but amusing nonetheless.

    They should add "when anyone mentions 1966" to that list. I love, and hate in equal measure, the ridiculous lengths people will go to in order to bring it up. E.g. "It rained precisely 2.228 mm today, the last time that happened...was 1966".

    But yes, actually quite looking forward to seeing Henry as a pundit, always good value. I hope they have Seedorf on as well. I also hope Robbie Savage has been dropped for the World Cup. And all the other dross.

    I was curious to see what Gavin Peacock was doing these days, so I looked him up on Google. Apparently he "abandoned his career in punditry to pursue a religious calling", and is now a pastor at a church in Calgary. That's great

    I wonder if his sermons are any better than his analysis of football...

    Top right drinking square should never happen seeing as it was the Scots who introduced Brazil to the beautiful game.

    In India we get Peter Crouch and Mikael Silvestre. They're not that bad.
