These damned Vuvuzelas are so utterly annoying! We watched all games without sound on TV because we fed up with this annoying noise after the first five minutes of the opening game already. This is no football atmosphere... no cheering and no singing from the fans, just this annoying sound, simply aweful!
"We've tried to get some order," he continued. "We have asked for no vuvuzelas during national anthems or stadium announcements. It's difficult but we're trying to manage the best we can.
"We've had some broadcasters and individuals [complaining] and it's something we are evaluating on an on-going basis."
Jordaan admitted he was not a huge fan of them himself. "I would prefer singing," he said.
"It's always been a great generator of a wonderful atmosphere in stadiums and I would try to encourage them to sing.
"In the days of the struggle (against apartheid) we were singing, all through our history it's our ability to sing that inspired and drove the emotions."

It looks as if the Vuvuzelas might be banned from the stadiums

The red card was ridiculous mind you.

In order to make the Bunker Hill joke work, they had to have the British/English part wrong on one side of the analogy, since the Revolution was against Britain and the football match was against England.

So many things awful and wrong about the the way Australia played that it's hard to know where to start... an embarrasment indeed. Cahill's red card was laughable, but hardly an excuse - we still would've been thrashed with him or without him.

Australia sucks at soccer..and really..we should stop glorifying our stupid team.

If the English side keeps up its iffy goalkeeping, if we have a England-Germany 1/8 final it's going to be target practice for the German strikers. Ouch!

It was a late tackle, but at most deserved a yellow card.

or does anyone see England - Germany in the 1/8th finals?

England better gets going soon, or does anyone see England - Germany in the 1/8th finals?

Is it about time to fire Dennis Rommedahl, Jon Dahl & Jesper Grønkjær? They all suck!

Well everyone should just get over the debate about the horns, because it looks like they're not going to be banned after all.
