World Cup 2018

Recommended Posts

Right, the Euros had their own thread, the 2010 World Cup had one, and I'm pretty sure I remembering posting in the 2014 one, but I can't find it just now. So, 2 days till the latest World Cup.

 

Will Germany become first team to win 2 on the bounce since Pele's Brazil in 62?

Will the English find an even funnier way to exit than losing to Iceland? Panama like this possibility.

Will Putin rig the entire thing?

Which Deathlist pick will inconveniently die during a group stage match, like Casey Kasem back in 2014?

 

All this and more to be answered in the next month or so.

 

I'm backing Scotland  Italy  Chile oh fuck it, let's go Uruguay.

 

 

Have at it, or not.

Still haven't picked a team for this outing, due to Italy being kaputski, the back-up missus' choice of Ireland having been sodomised by Christian Eriksen, and the lack of any enjoyable first-timer meme sides. Will probably just go all-in on Anyone But England.

I have the headline written for England's early exit.

 

'England Russia Way From World Cup'

That's it, lets have a WC 2018 thread created by a native of Jockland.....:lol:

I'm sure the England squadwill be able to tell the rest of the UK what it's like to play in a World Cup................and what it's like to leave it almost immediately.:D

Predictions:

 

  • England will just escape the group stages before getting knocked out.
  • A handful of matches will be played behind closed doors due to safety fears.
  • Hooliganism will make the 2016 euros look like a bun fight in comparison.
  • Some countries will get sanctioned for making politic statements.
  • Iceland to win the thing.

I predict that one of 32 teams will win the World Cup, which is likely rigged anyways. :D

Asking an Australian for thoughts on soccer is a bit like asking an Englishman for thoughts on cooking or a German for thoughts on comedy, but ........I will be cheering for Australia who will struggle for a point in the group stage.  I put a $5 bet on Belgium to win for my Belgian work colleague so I will go for them to win the show.

Spaniards helpfully providing the traditional absolute breakdown, with the Dutch absent and the French seemingly vaguely functional for once.

Can't recall a manager getting sacked day before the tournament even starts. Otto Fister did try to walk out, but came back.

 

Hope Morocco knock out Spain anyway.

Here we go, here we go, here we go.....

 

No, not a chant in support, but rather a mournful cry as here we go again....Engerland are packing to go to Russia; Engerland arrive at airport; Engerland are on the plane; Engerland have arrived at the airport; Engerland have checked into their accommodation; Engerland hold training camp.....

 

You know, the only thing I don't seem to know about the squad is their bowel movements. But then I don't watch Kay Burley...

Yes. Germany wins in a penalty shootout against France. In the end Griezmann kicks the ball 4 feet over the goal

I think France is going to win.

Germany out in the semi-finals, have forgotten against whom, could be England... because yes, I believe that England is going to defeat Brazil in the quarter-finals.

Pretty heated discussion at the dinner table today about how Poland will fair this year.

 

I'm optimistic and say we'll definitely at least make it past the group stage. Colombia's the only major threat, it shouldn't be hard getting past Senegal and Japan.

 

But my dad's older and has seen much more disappointment over the years. He knows that the Polish team will find a way to fuck it all up. His prediction is that Colombia and Senegal make it out of the group.

 

As for a winner, I'd say Belgium. But they did find a way to choke in the 2016 Euros so it's not a sure thing. France, Portugal, Germany, Brazil, and Argentina are all contenders too.

 

But what do I know? 12 months ago I said Chile will win it.:lol:

What about Argentinian players' hands, have they got any of those?
