In the words of Jacob Zuma the 2009 Confederations Cup is now open. And was there. We went in a full antorage. All the it was awesome. First I want some comments on the following. Will really appreciate the input.

How was the PARK AND RIDE FACILITY. Was it efficient. Does it need refining. Did people make it to the ground on time. Which is the best Park and Ride facility that our owes from Lenz and Fordsburg should use. Is the PARK AND RIDE A good thing?Please some structured comments here will be appreciated?

And also please share your comments on the Check Points, The ticketing etc.

For us.The Park and Ride was ok. We sat a bit in traffic at Wits,parked and made it through the que. The ride to Ellis Park was lekker and traffic Free, A bit of a bottle neck at first Check point and I think they should open up more ailes or guys should get there early. Im worried about the Loftus game,Italy vs Brazil. Hope all goes well.
But the one fortunate aspect was that the seating was sublime, Security was tight and this ensued no s@3t in the stadium. We missed the Opening Ceremony but it was a good guide of what to expect.

The atmosphere was awesome,the football not so. Bafana struggled against minnows Iraq who put on a good show. The fans were passionate but I thought Santana didnt attack enough. Tico Modise was relied upon too much and how much could the man do. Sa didnt use the width and there were two clear cut chances that they had to take, Also Bernard Parker blocked a header which was surely 1-0 to Bafana Bafana. Fans were understandably upset with Bafanas showing and many we spoke too were calling for Santanas head. A draw with Iraq was unaccaptable. They must beat New Zealand now and they put themselves in a tricky situation.

Overall though was great to be at the ground and incident free.

In the other game Spain and Torres were rampant. They destroyed New Zealand and were clinical. They look favourites. Some comments from the Rustenburg owes that were there will be appreciated. Swoosh0018's Cisse was at the game and got us some pics. How was the game Cisse.Can you give us some feedback?

And to Italy vs USA we go. I wont be there, but Forza Azurri and I hope we beat the YANKS. The other game is Brazil vs Egypt.

So a great week lies ahead. The Swoosh0018 crew are off to Italy vs Egypt at Ellis Park next,Spain vs Bafana Bafana in Bloemfontein and then the Big one ,Italy vs Brazil in Loftus. Cant wait and gotta conserve the energy

    Swoosh. The Iraqi's like the azzuri are a poor excuse for a football team..
    They won the Asia section.

    I find it tough to believe they beat Australia, Saudi, Japan, Korea and co to win that cup..The must have pulled a schmock..

    Park and ride is very poorly planned. But i think they will improve it..

    And to conclude.. Tonyt at LOFTUS, the home of REAL CHAMPIONS, the blue bulls.. We will witness the poorest excuse for a world cup winning nation ever. I hope Loftus's izzat of being a stadium of stature and excellency is maintained by the USA

  2. Compared to previous bafana games this was fantastic! u can see fifa got them to get the house in order. it went of fantastic. 1 hour 15 minutes from when we parked the car at wits to in our seat! that was execllent! the security at the stadium was also tops, no hassle with someone in ur seat etc!

    park and ride is tops u get a real feel for the atmosphere when u waiting at wits and the ride as well is packed with okes chanting and singing! u wont get that vibe in ur own car!

  3. I agree.The Park and Ride atmosphere is amazing.Its mingling with the fans.Guys complain about the traffic but they sit 2hours a day for work.Here you mingle with the fans.May take a while but the atmosphere is stupendous.Its amazing. Most importantly though SECURITY was first class.

    Great day

    World Class atmosphere just your boys cant play football!


  5. It was really great to see such wonderful players live. The movement from the Spanish players was awesome. It seems like every player in the Spanish team wants the ball and they are not afraid to pass it around.The park and ride in Rustenburg was excellent. We never had any problems and once again the security was wonderful. Theres a great police presence around at all times which is good and also i must say that all the volunteers at the stadium were a great help to all.
