Well we are two Saturdays away from England's first group game versus the USA on ITV at 7.30pm, so I thought I'd start up a World Cup thread. Post your views, news, tips, moans, stories, fan pics etc here and let's roar our 3 Lions home with the World Cup trophy in July.
The day job brings me into contact with a lot of digital solutions and news and it's all focused on the World Cup at the moment with things like viral ads, games, mobile apps. I've attached an automated Football Tracker which you can spread round work and everyone can update the tables as each game is played. It will work out who plays who, where and when in the next rounds too.
A fun game to try is Tweety Uppy if you are a Twitterer. A rare thing this a Twitter game where you pass on the ball to someone else and they do the same, the winner gets a 3DTV! Not bad.
And for all those with a smartphone like an Android, iPhone, Windows etc and caught short out, not near a TV during a World Cup game, then try out Yamgo.com or on your phone Yamgo.mobi - FREE TV on your mobile (bandwidth might cost you though, so make sure you are on a good all in tariff), it covers all the main terrestrial and a few of the digital channels including a lot of the football club TV channels too, like Chelsea, Arsenal, Man Utd, Liverpool, West Ham etc. It already came to the rescue when England played Mexico the other night and I had to run an errand just around kick-off. Good pic and sound on my Android G1.
Well I'm all flagged and bunting'd up and as soon as the rain stops then the world cup tradition in our house will start again and they'll be flying proud for Rio and his team. I'm being positive, finals here we come...
Just don't mention penalties...
I look forward to the banter here over the coming weeks...w
