    The object of desire

    At last! The time has come! While some of us are eagerly awaiting the big event, gluing stickers into our panini collection albums with shaking hands, pl-anning our holidays in line with the game schedules and ensuring a sufficient beer supply, others are se-riously questioning what all the fuss is about - grown men chasing a pigs bladder around a field. With this publication we hope to communicate our childlike ex-citement to appease those unfortunate few and to in-crease the level of anticipation for the true believers.

    This time the show has moved to Africa for the first time ever. To be more precise it has moved to South Africa, which geographically lies in the south of Af-rica. Variability in altitude between the playing are-nas and the fact that the tournament will be held in the winter in the southern hemisphere are just a few details that have to be borne in mind. We want to give an overview of the stadiums with all the required valuable information that could make a difference. Next we analyze the teams, their paths during qua-lification and add some subjective comments of how we judge their strengths and weaknesses. Stunningly intelligent football quotes and a quiz for expert en-thusiasts rounds off the publication. As the absolute highlight we present a highly scientific analytical model of the tournament to identify who could end up with the grand prize and, more importantly, to calculate the optimal return flight dates for individual teams. As readers of our last European Champion-ship 2008 project may recall, we had some partial success with Spain reaching the finals exactly as pro-jected. Spurred by this result we have adjusted and improved our model and aim to surpass the previous result. But more on that inside...

    On this note we hope that our readers will enjoy this document and, of course, the World Championship 2010. May the best team win.
