THE South China Morning Post is offering readers the chance to spend an evening on ATV World channel's World Cup panel.

Every day between now and the final on July 17, the SCMP will publish a World Cup-related question which will be featured in that night's coverage by the ATV World Cup panel.

Simply fax in your comments in answer to the question in not more than 50 words to 336-0326. The best replies will be discussed on air and published, along with the name of the correspondent, in the sports pages of the following day's SCMP.

At the end of each week the names of those whose comments were published will be put into a hat and the first to be drawn out will receive an invitation to appear on the panel.

YESTERDAY'S QUESTION AND WINNERS What is the most unsatisfactory aspect of world soccer today and why? From ASHISH PANJABI, New Territories: ''Soccer clubs are about making profits and the spirit of sportsmanship and competition doesn't seem to exist. The commitment of players is non-existent today with players not sticking to one team for life like they did in the old days.'' From MARK DUNCAN, Lai Chi Kok: ''The most unsatisfactory aspect of football today is that half of them need to get their bloody hair cut, and stop looking like a bunch of girls.'' From JODY LYNNE BRENNAN, Pokfulam: ''The worst thing about world soccer is the appalling lack of confidence the world has in the event's host - the USA! The fields, the fans . . . everything looks great. Last week in New York I saw enthusiastic fans delighted by the US's overall handling of the event.'' TODAY'S QUESTION: Why doesn't FIFA insist England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland play in the future as a British team like the Olympics, as they are obviously too weak to play individually?
