    I'm for my neighbour country tonight, but from what I've seen so far, I think it can go either way. Belgium has some pretty good players but so far their games havent been all that amazing. I think USA plays a little bit more consistent.

    edit: Though watching the game so far, USA isnt chasing the ball enough and are allowing the belgians to play way too much and way too close to their own goal. So far it looks in favor of the belgians. :P

    I think belgium is probably the least patriotic country in the world. Normally I'd applaud such behaviour if it wasn't completely grounded. :P

    Well, I should not scrutinize belgium too much though. Whilest I absolutely hate Brussel. I think Antwerpen is great and I've enjoyed traveling through the ardennes. Brugge and Gent are a bit too old for my taste though. Well, I've had fun in Brugge at least, but it did involve a lot of beer and a couple of Kwakje's and my life's experiences at the time didn't count for much. :P


    edit: The ball needs to go in the goal belgians, not the players. xD

    You say that but to the people from Brussels as well? I mean, everytime I go to Brussels (And I go there a lot for work), I only every see chagrined faces. It's like the whole city is one big depression sometimes. :P

    My brother now lives in Gent. I got him the Xenophobe's Guide To The Belgians for Christmas and one of the few things I remember from the book is that it said that the Belgians are almost ostentatiously unpatriotic. If they are anything like their neighbors the Germans, they are secretly proud of how un-proud they are


    That being said, while I have nothing against Belgium , I'm rooting for the US, it would be fun to see them advance and really get into the game (part of the secret plan to europanize them and then take over their country and turn it into a Soviet republic, Ann Coulter was right after all)


    PS: He absolutely loves it there (Gent that is)!

    The belgians have dominated pretty much most of the game so far, but the ball has to end up in the goal or that doesn't matter, so who knows. Even now it can still go either way.

    But I think the belgians deserve it more for this game. The americans havent been chasing the ball much at all and have been entirely dependant on trying to counter. Counters which haven't been particularly strong either.

    Don't forget that Brussels is...complicated. It's a flemish city turned walloon turned Brusselois turned international capital of the EU coz we are a tiny country that happens to be in the centre of Europe, buffering the big dicks of France, The Netherlands, Germany and the UK. Most of them have the rep of being arrogant Brusselois though, so they do have their pride - they're just known for being cynically elitist about it



    @Red Herring : yeahhhhh...I personally pride myself on only knowing the first two sentences of our national anthem

    Honestly, I find myself rooting for Belgium just because I don't want to get any gloating americans on my doorstep as they know I'm belgian

    Patriotism has nothing to do with it

    And Gent has an amazing, young, trendy feel to it due to being a student's town, so I can imagine him absolutely loving it. Their cultural heritage is also very much worth checking out
