Our World Cup offering
Like Fabio Capello, we at the BBC Sport website have known most of our plans for the World Cup for months, but also like the England boss, we are still making some last-minute alterations and tweaks on the eve of the tournament.
We publicly launched our World Cup site on 11 May - as we marked one month to go until the tournament - and my how that month has flown.
I will try to explain here, with two days to go until that first game between hosts South Africa and Mexico, what our offering on this website will be during the World Cup - what's already there and what you can still expect to see.
We have had a lot of positive feedback about the site already - the way it matches up in look and feel to BBC Sport's overall theme of "the World Cup from the Rainbow Nation", and the way we have showcased video archive, data such as fixtures, results and scheduling information, and our on-screen presenters and pundits.
The video archive in particular has been very well received. We have tried to present this by tournament , by player , by team and via the memories of legendary broadcaster John Motson, who has covered every World Cup since 1970 and interviewed every England manager since Sir Alf Ramsey.
We hope you have enjoyed the range of video with apologies to our users outside the UK, who are not permitted to watch it on our site under the terms of our World Cup contract.
Once the tournament starts, we will have live video in the UK of every game that's on BBC television, and highlights of both our own games and those on ITV. The games that are live on ITV television will be streamed on their website.
It sounds really simplistic, but one of our main aims was simply to let everyone know what was coming up, when it was coming up, and how you could follow it. Hopefully we do that via our fixtures and results page, our groups page which lets you see how the tournament will unfold, and our BBC coverage page, which explains what you will find on the BBC and who our key presenters and pundits will be.
Which brings me to the use of those big names on the website. I have mentioned World Cup Motty, but we will also be getting access to some of the experts whose views will be seen and heard across BBC TV and radio this summer.
Clarence Seedorf, Jurgen Klinsmann and Emmanuel Adebayor will be on our TV sofa and also appearing on this site, along with our regulars such as Gary Lineker, Alan Hansen, Mark Lawrenson, Alan Shearer and Lee Dixon. Everton manager David Moyes has joined the likes of Graham Taylor and Chris Waddle in the Radio 5 live commentary booths, and we will also be bringing their views to this site too.
In addition, there will be blogs from in-house talent like Football Focus presenter Dan Walker, our Sports Editor David Bond, sports news correspondents Dan Roan and James Pearce, and web journalists Phil McNulty, Paul Fletcher, Chris Bevan and Jonathan Stevenson.
If you use social media, there's more to be found there. On Twitter we have a list of tweeters whose contributions are also being displayed on the right-hand side of our World Cup homepage. You can follow the whole list here.
And if you use Facebook, Phil McNulty has a page there and you can also become a fan of Match of the Day, getting updates throughout the World Cup and also during the domestic Premier League season about the most popular TV football show in the country.
I haven't mentioned our usual service of live text commentary, live data, match previews and reports. The hugely popular text commentary service will be provided by two journalists in South Africa (Jonathan Stevenson in Johannesburg and Chris Bevan in Cape Town) as well as others back in London.
We have completely rebuilt the live match page which these commentaries sit in, and some of you will have seen the public try-outs we gave this new service recently. We will run another full, public test of this service on Thursday, and then we'll be into Friday's action.
Match reports will be written both in South Africa (by those two guys, plus Phil McNulty and Paul Fletcher) and also from London. And we'll have photo galleries every day, plus don't forget our World Cup Photo Album where we are aiming to get the players taking part in the tournament pictured with members of our audience. Have you had your picture taken with a World Cup footballer? Send it to us via that page.
Finally, have you tried our Team Tracker and Predictor? This tool allows you to follow a team through the tournament, getting updates, reports and video highlights (if you're in the UK) and also you can work out who is going to win the greatest footballing prize of all by predicting the winners at every stage. Please do try it out and send it round to your friends too!
I am happy, as always, to answer any queries here about our World Cup coverage here on this blog and you can also follow me on Twitter where I answer queries about the BBC Sport website on a daily basis. I will be in London for the tournament, but our web editor in South Africa, Howard Nurse, is also available on Twitter for questions.
Enjoy the greatest show on the footballing earth, everyone ...
