Who are the biggest sooks or cry babies at the soccer world cup?

    Portugal haven't been knocked out yet, Ronaldo loves crying on TV!
  3. What does "sook" mean? Must be British English...
  4. Cry baby

    he is having a sook

    he is whinging

    does that help
  5. I understand "cry baby", however I've never heard the term "sook". By the way, the term "whinging" is also not used here in the USA. We use the similar term "whining" here in the USA.

    Just because we all speak English, doesn't mean we speak the same language....;)
  6. USA got through to the 2nd round!!!

    Guess its better to move on in the tournament than to worry about who the biggest "sooks" are....;)

    Sook not a British thing. First time I've ever heard it.

    'Sook' is Australian/New Zealand slang for someone who is soft, a wimp, is easily upset, or just a pussy.

    Now England are knocked out, I'm following the USA and Nigeria (both nations have players representing them that play for my team).

    Who is everybody else supporting?

    My grandfather was German so I am always keen to see them do well

    English people knock the Germans, but frankly there's nothing to knock. Quality football teams every time. Right mindset, attitude and pride in wearing the shirt. Wish we were more like them tbh.

    Agreed. They don't bite other players either!

    Its quite frightening how so many other nations have not only caught up with 'us', but left us in their wake. We are no longer a football superpower, and the minute the FA realise this, the sooner we can start to do something about it. I had a pt just last week who coaches kids, and he's forever onto the FA begging for balls/bibs/kit etc just to help him out. We really are third world in our approach to coaching the kids.
  14. Compared to when I was a boy growing up in Sacramento in the 1960s and early 1970s, where the only organized sports we could play in were Little League Baseball and Pop Warner Football (American football, not soccer), soccer (football) has now become the #1 youth participation sports in the USA. Soccer is huge here and Sacramento now has its first professional outdoor soccer team. I believe the only thing holding soccer back here in the USA is the lack of intermittent breaks throughout the games that would allow television advertisers to insert commercials into the games. Once the television advertisers realize how to advertise more effectively on television, soccer will easily become as popular as baseball, football and basketball here in the USA

    Both my sons (now 31 and 26), played "competitive soccer" (traveling teams) for many years during their preteen and teen years and now my oldest grandson (almost 8) is playing on a competitive soccer team. I coached boys soccer for four years (ages 8-12) and, honestly, I had more fun coaching these young lads and getting them more fit and getting them to enjoy the game more and become better players than just about anything else I have done in my adult life.

    If soccer had only been available to me like it is now to the youth of our country, I probably would have become a soccer player rather than a long distance runner.

    Bring on round two.....go USA!!!

    I'm supporting Chile and Belgium - both teams impressed me greatly in qualifying and more than anything I like watching good football, regardless of the team (unless it is the Italians - too much diving and shirt pulling historically for me to like the Italians)

    Would like to see Messi shine over the knockout stages and secure his place as a World Cup Legend

    Well, we all know that soccer is a gentleman's game played by ruffians (and wimps):boohoo:, whilst rugby is a ruffians' game played by gentlemen (unless of course it involves Australians and New Zealanders). [When it's a boring day a little controversy always goes down well]. :drinks
