    It's just I had preconceptions and stereotypical info on the French before I went on my summer holiday the other year. E.g. it's a stereotype that the French are dirty? (Don't moan at me, I didn't make that up) Well when you go to France when 17 and come back with chicken-pox, it does nothing to dispell this rumour.

    I like Monaco if that's any consolation.

    I do hate the French in footballing terms more than in general country terms. [/holedigging]

    What a result, it really was a magnificent day to be Scottish.

    I have never been so proud of a team in my life, France have so much more talent than us but true Scottish fighting spirit won the day in the end.

    And what a party it was after it as well, then when I heard Ireland got hammered it just capped a perfect day.

    I thought they were the nominees for the team of the year? Unless the player of the year also comes from that list...

    Top two teams from each of the seven groups, plus Austria and Switzerland as automatic qualifiers (being the hosts) would make up the sixteen teams in the group stages

    Scotland are one of only six teams to still have a 100% win record in the qualifiers so far (the others being Sweden and Czech Republic (who have also played three games), and Germany, Greece and Turkey (who have each played two games))

    I'm also quite pleased with Northern Ireland's performance thus far - a victory over Spain and a draw with Denmark - they're doing pretty damn well

    Well van der Sar was one of the best keepers in the Prem since joining United. Only parralelled by Cech in that respect. Buffon is the best keeper in the world... no contest.

    As for the rest however, I have absolutely no clue. Totti hasn't even been back from injury for long and he was terribly wasteful at the World Cup. Gattuso is consistantly good, but hardly the best.

    What has he actually done? Has he kept 34 clean sheets in a single season like Reina? Has he strung together a 10 game clean sheet run like Reina? He hasnt done very much to be rated above many keepers.

    Maybe not 34, but he managed 24 in his first season at OT, 5 clean sheets on the trot from his debut, which are still impressive, and has had a big impact on the United team, looking like the replacement for Schmikes that we've been after for ages. He also had a solid WC IMHO. However I agree that the selections are strange, with players missing out, and others included that perhaps shouldn't have been. Then again, we dont know how the minds of professional footballers work, they must see things we don't.

    Well the players do the nominating so I guess so. For this reason I have no respect for the FIFPros, they're just a chance for footballers to get in the papers with all their celeb friends and crack on to Scrlett Johansonn.

    Rafael Marquez
    Steven Gerrard
    Cesc Fabregas

    They woud be my top 3 but i fink it is extremely unlikely that any of them will be in the actual top 3. Possibly Gerrard.

    I chose Marquez btw because i thought if Mexico didn't have him they cud of got knocked out in the group stages!

    I did think that the first world cup Klose was in was a bit of a fluke. I was wrong, he was great in the last world cup again. Don't seem to hear much about his league performances though tbh.
