  • I’d only want to avoid Netherlands and Germany. Not too bothered about the rest tbh.

    Switzerland Croatia - Iran - Canada

    OR 

    United States - Morocco - Saudi Arabia

    Worst Group would have to be

    Netherlands or Germany - Senegal or Japan - Ecuador or Costa Rica

    Not worried about France or Belgium?

    Edit: Doh, they’re in the same pot as you.
  • Simmed us in group F with Croatia, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia…if only. 
  • I got Group A as - 
    Qatar
    Switzerland
    Poland
    Canada

    That's got to be a contender for weakest World Cup Group of all time

    And Denmark. It's best to avoid those 3 and be more assured of top spot.

    I want France to get Switzerland, Japan and Cameroon, and for USA to get their arses kicked by Iran and Argentina.
  • England v Qatar final.

    We lose on penalties.
  • Can we all agree we're favourites so that people don't try and rewrite history when we get knocked out that we 'overachieved' this time please. 

    Euros had our name on it.

    I can't agree. The favourites are probably France and Brazil. Belgium too if you go by FIFA rankings.
    I think that we would be the best team in the world and real favourites if we had a modern day Terry Butcher and Des Walker in the team.

    Apart from the fact that Italy went into the Tournament with a decent unbeaten record. Always thought it would be an England vs Italy Final, even before it all started, but never really felt we'd have enough to beat them - 2014 World Cup bucked the trend, but the warm climate World Cup's have nearly always been won by a South American team, so going to back Brazil to win this one.

    I do hope the media lay off the pressure though.

    The last couple of Tournaments under Southgate no one has expected anything

    Suddenly now, we're back to being expected challengers for the title, and quite rightly so - But equally hope that there is realisation that the fact the players were allowed to just get on with things, gets remembered too

    Didn't know we spelt our name I-T-A-L-Y.

    The same Italy that can't make it to the World Cup? 

    That Italy was better than our side? 

    A lot of fear over nothing. We sat back and let them dominate because we were too scared to see if we could beat them. And we could have. 

    Again we have clearly the best squad on paper. I agree there shouldn't be pressure, but there should be a healthy level of expectation. Both in results and attacking performances. 
  • Odds suggest we are third favourites behind Brazil and France.

    The same way you bleated on about how England were going to achieve nothing before the Euros started and then had to backtrack as each round went by…?
  • On our day we are better than any team out there. But this is tournament football, anything can happen. France, if they click, are the team that worry me. I think Belgium are done and aren’t good enough defensively. Brazil are Brazil, but South American football is poor at the moment so it’s hard to judge how good they are. We certainly have a great chance.
  • world cup of beers could be an interesting one this year 

    dont think youll find a saudi or qatari beer ;) 
  • We can win this world cup and I believe we will at least make the semi final again.

    If we do manage to win the world cup!....without complaining, it would just a bit of a shame that it's hosted in Qatar...and it will be in the winter!

    It will also hugely disrupt the league competition.

    Not quite the enjoyable tradition we all know and love.

    Tradition and internal pride has continued to be shat all over, ever since Sven was the England manager

  • I love the World Cup. Endless sunny summer days watching three games back to back in a beer garden somewhere, soaking up the rays ........ oh, hang on.

    France have a proud tradition to uphold - Brazil are the only winners (1994 | 2002) to have gone beyond the Group Stages in the following Tournament since the World Cup grew to 32-teams.

    Beat the tougher teams and then have people suggest that they’re not as good as they used to be anyway ;)
    Win the bloody thing and no-one complains.....oh wait a minute.

  • I more so warm to the idea that whoever wins the competition....will host the next one.

    If that country wins it again, then they host it again.

    Sounds a bit unfair on poorer countries etc, but it is a simple solution to a resolvable money grabbing boring problem

    Slightly re-writing history there, which you have a tendency to do where England’s involved. We scored after 2 minutes and then battered them for following 25. In fact that opening 25 minutes was probably the most high intensity, attacking performance I’ve seen under Southgate. But Italy weathered it and grew back into the game as you would expect a team like them to do. We definitely didn’t ‘sit back’ nor were we ‘scared’. As the game grew on, there was an element of don’t do anything stupid to lose the game perhaps.
    So many finals at the professional level go to extra time and penalties for exactly this reason - you can sometimes make a bit of money by backing the draw through the knockout stages of a tournament.

  • I got Group A as - 
    Qatar
    Switzerland

    Canada

    I reckon Qatar are nailed on for some 'easier' draws in the other 3 spots in their group so they don't get too embarrassed in their own World Cup.

    Honestly…I reckon people would still complain.
  • Couldn’t care who we play. Care more about the timings than the opposition. Personally would hope we get Germany or Scotland to make the build up to a game more exciting.

    Four games daily through the knockout rounds with kick off times: 10am, 1pm, 4pm, 7pm

    Knockout stage kick offs: 3pm, 7pm
  • I assume league 1 games will still be being played throughout the world cup?
