Not a blitz Topic but being a Football fan thought maybe others who would like to discuss World Cup that is starting tomorrow?

Who do you think will lift that Legendairy trophy favourites like Germany, Brazil and Spain

Or Underdogs like Belgium, Portugal, England etc... ?

After I saw the group the ruskies play in this will be the most rigged cup since 2002.

Never been interested that much in footy.  Watching millionaires with inflated egos kicking around a bag of wind on a grassy pitch doesn't do it for me,  The game isn't so beautiful any more, much more a business ripping off the fans.

 

i will always watch Ireland and any UK team play in the World Cup but I don't get too excited about.  I do it more for my son than anything.  Rugby, now there's a proper game.

I wonder what that reminds me of...

50 /1 odds for Russia not much more remote than getting a Chieftain mk6.

Quite right... footie pales next to it.  Over the next few weeks we are going to see a plethora of diving and amateur dramatics that should bring disgrace to the culprits performing it, but instead they are lauded and rather overpaid IMO.

I drew Switzerland in my office sweepstake...

All the footie heads drew worse teams though, does anyone fancy Saudi Arabia’s chances...

Rugby is an attrition full sport . I fear for the current generation in their 50s and 60s. Great watch though.

Saudi Arabia? It's not horseracing!

Fixed it for you ;)

I reckon the French froggies will lift it.... but put your money on the ruskies reaching the semi finals, Putin will be pointing a loaded Kalashnikov at Infantino and his cronies... huge fix.

And when I reach the gates of heaven, Saint Peter I will tell..."one more soldier reporting sir, I've served my time in hell".

I agree with Cancracker and backed Russia. If South Korea can get to the semifinals with home advantage then Russia can win. Also backed England. I hope they win to watch all the English media who hound them being proved wrong. Sometimes it’s like they want them to fail.

Of course, like they do in the US with shootings. It sells better so they don't care as long as more money comes in.

Germany will finally experience victory in Russia, the Russians like England will make the last 16 but unlike England will fail a drugs tests or brown envelope test, and all in all it will be a drab affair except watching an underdog like Iceland surprise everyone again. 

 

The most entertaining elements will be watching how the local plod deal with hooligans.

I know, but my £1 in our office sweepstake and getting Switzerland doesn’t suck half as much as drawing Saudi Arabia, Egypt or Iran...

Minority sport where the players enjoy far too much male on male contact

Most of the players are used to that though as when they were boarders, the masters and older pupils told them it was normal....
