Your comp says it is a 7.45 kickoff ?

Who do you think will win the 2018 World Cup ?
Probably Germany.

Which team do you not want to win the tournament ?
Probably Germany.

How far will England go ?
Not as far as the tabloids will expect them to go.

Will you be watching intently ?
Absolutely. The wife has been tidying her sewing room for an extended sojourn, so it would be remiss of me to let her down.

Got a mate going Saturday for 3 weeks, i do fear for his safety. He's only missed 2 England internationals, home, away and tournaments in the last 14 years.
Who do you think will win the 2018 World Cup ? Open as it's ever been, if I had to pick one it would be Germany

Which team do you not want to win the tournament ? France

How far will England go ? Quarters

Will you be watching intently ?
Not intently, there will be some games that i won't have any interest in.

Morning all,

It is usual for European teams to win in Europe so I would swing towards Germany
England should make Q/F unless there is some surprise in group stages and we fluke a easier run
Dont want Spain to win
My my my, such a lot of guns around town and so few brains

Russia will win...It's already been arranged.
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

"objective fan" - is that a consistent oxymoron?"

....perhaps the England team had better ask someone else to open the door (if they have handles) when entering the team hotel and the stadium changing room :shock:

I think it will be one of the usual suspects that wins it - probably Germany (again :( )

(Not a ? - but like to win. Obviously England, but certainly an outsider (aka - the likes of Colombia/Denmark/Peru/Sweden/Mexico) - the 1992 Euro's were great and all the better for a bit of an upset

Not want to win - Argentina

England - quarters

I will try and watch most of the games. Whilst some of the initial group games can be a bit tedious they do throw up the odd gem and when it gets down to the knock-out phase they're all pretty entertaining.
