    You'd think they could come up with something a bit more original than the Fakklands playbook, this being to loudly proclaim your willingness to negotiate while doing everything possible to ensure that no negotiations take place.

    It conjures up the image of the empty chair in the Foreign Office when Timerman didn't show up for the negotiations he demanded. They seem to go very quiet when they have to actually face the people they bad-mouth all over the world. What is that 'c' word?…….. Cowards.

    Is argieland going to try “negotiating” via Mr Pollack? It all takes time as he trots back and forth. Ridiculous offer from argies, Pollack passes it on, hedge funds say 1.33 billion now, Pollack goes back and so on and on. Until argieland says “Well, we tried”. NML starts seizing assets.

    Surely this farce will go on and on, until someone stops it and demands Argentina pays or defaults.

    Bo Hoo If you are going to cry about a debt being hard to collect then don't buy it in the first place.
    The reason you got it cheap is because it is hard to collect.

    Again and again they refuse to speak with the people that matter! Just like they refuse to meet the Falkland Islanders.

    Still wondering if they are stalling because they are trying to work out a shady deal with the Chinese to get the holdouts paid without triggering holdover clauses with the restructured bond holders...

    It was well watched in the USA Elaine. The Red Sox had it on in the locker room and many NFL stadiums had crowds with mega screens showing the game. I missed it I just got home. Worcester (Mass) had a large tv in the square for the public to watch. 16 saves by Howard....a WC record.....but still a loss.
    Ann Coulter...America's most famous called soccer the moral decay of America. She is a classic example of stupid is as stupid speaks.

    @12 The USA game? Yes, I heard people were abandoning work to watch it. I was out at a dinner but watched some of extra time. USA were very exciting to watch but not good enough. I think people in the US should be proud of their team. Next time…..

    I am not a big fan as I am the NFL is my countrymen, how could I not root for them. I spent the past several weeks in Argentina. My appreciate of the sport and it's competitive grew quit a bit.

    We never seem to get beyond the 16 and we backed our way in there. Great goalie and not enough on offense. Anyone that thinks soccer is not growing in the USA is just not in the
