Why I HATE The Vuvuzela!

 South-African-boys-blow-t-006

There are very few things I hate in life and the Vuvuzela is one of them

The reason I hate the vuvuzela is because it has destroyed the atmosphere of the world cup. Anyone who has been to live matches knows that the atmosphere is what makes all the difference. When you make the 64 matches of the world cup sound alike, then there is a problem.

I completely understand the argument that the Vuvuzela is part of South African football. Therefore I will support whole heartedly all South Africa’s matches sounding like Ibola Lethu (I have never been a fan). But the moment you say your tradition must be imposed on your guests from 31 countries, you are being unfair.

The Vuvuzela might motivate,Siphiwe Tshabalala but it makes Lionel Messi loose concentration. If South Africa is playing Argentina, they can blow the Vuvuzela all they like after all, what is home advantage all about. But the sound of the Vuvuzela should not wreck a match between England and Brazil because neither team appreciates it. I want the best footballers to be at their best through out the world cup. I am sure the South Africans want that too (not when they play against them). So let each team hear the sounds that make them play.

I miss hearing the singing and trumpets of Nigerian supporters and I am sure I would have heard β€œall we are saaaaaaying, give us a goal” when we were a goal down against Argentina and that would have motivated our boys

I miss the drunk English fans chanting Rooney, Rooney, Rooneey

  1. While i miss the sounds of regular football (as we know it), i totally support the idea of Vuvuzela's cos 1stly i think for a country to sacrifice as much to host a WC and be deprived what gives them joy, will be wrong…it's like telling people not to bring drums to a naija stadium. Secondly, the WC sounds as u know it, aren't preset…who knows, if u always watched/heard games with the vuvuzela, it may sound weird without it. While I'll admit the Vuvuzela kini gets monotonous, ==========<() Vuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!! get used to it πŸ™‚

  7. True true… What made me dodge Ibola Lethu was simply the buzzing sounds. It really didn't make any sense. no chantings no words nothing… just bees buzzing about. I hate it honestly. i dont think it'll leave SA though so i think we are ok to hope that it ends with SA WC 2010.

  10. Well said.
    There are only disadvantages to the vuvuzela thingy no advantages. The players can't communicate with themselves on the field, half of the spectators will return to their countries almost deaf and worst of all the Nigerian supporters clubs can”t send messages to the SE. What a shame, its a sad affair.

  12. Oo…the boring football has ruined the world cup, the Vuvuzela is a kind distraction from boring tactics and negative tactical football…yawn!
