World Cup Thread 2018

True, …

@theDJR, … any chance of shifting this one into the Sports bar?


#22

I think soccer is definitely much more gibberish than sport, but OK.

@Riolio are you meant to be able to post within top-level forums, not just the specific ones below them?


#23

There’s no way to disallow it unfortunately.


#24

shift it to the dustin fletcher forum.


#25

This is me too. I study up hard during the WC and watch a stack of games and become an expert by the end, swearing I love the game and will keep following the leagues. Then I don’t watch anything for another four years.

oops

Winner - Belgium
Runner up - France
3rd - Brazil

Best smokey - Uruguay

Australia get a win against Peru but no other points.
Hope I’m very wrong.


#28

C’mon folks, … I need to know who to tune in for early doors, and am relying on the Blitz knowledge base … we have Egypt, … any others??


#29

I’m betting that Lygon Street will not be as busy this World Cup.


#30

To be fair i think I AM the blitz soccer brains trust. Check out the central Americans. Panama, Costa Rica and Mexico. Mexico could go very far.


#31

Roos going to the WC as Asia’s highest ranked nation.


#32

Those rankings make 2022 an even bigger farce a team that at the time will probably be ranked no higher than 80 will auto qualify


#33

World cup should have been taken off them, it proved beyond doubt how deep the corruption was in FIFA.

But that’s a discussion for another day


#34

Having said that russia are the host and lowest ranked for this one. Down in the 70s i think


#35

Yeah baby


#36

FIFA clearly anti LGBIQ-whatever. Illegal to be homosexual in Russia and Qatar


#37

Nothing will ever be better than his second goal against Japan in 2006. Great goal and commentary captured it perfectly.

Mates and I were studying for exams at that time and went nuts that night


#38

Just like to point out that Cameroon got out of their group and should’ve beaten Engerland in the Q/F. :stuck_out_tongue: They were robbed.

It is still one of my favorite all time W/C’s.

I reckon Senegal & Peru will be real surprise packets.

Also ■■■■ that Brazilian real Madrid ■■■■ that injured Fred.
