FIFA World Cup 2018

Recommended Posts

At least Gareth's old mate david beckham has taken the pressure off. Getting his kids teacher up the duff on the eve of the World Cup tops that goal against Greece.

Ooh, only ten days to go till it all kicks off! So exciting. I think we might do it this time! 

 

I didn't realise the island was in it.

I expect the island will by and large rally behind England like it usually does.

It’s a pity the island isn’t allowed in. It could be good fun for the short time it lasts.

This should have been in the other thread.

 

The Island team have been kicked out of CONIFA following a bit of a kerfuffle. They lost to the hosts who fielded an ineligible player and complained, as they should have, but the complaint was rejected and things went wrong from there. The manx haven't handled it very well.

It would be good if they could compete in the World Cup like Gibraltar can.

2026 world cup to be in Mexico, USA, and Canada.  Those soccerballers had better be good at climbing walls. 

In other news, Spain have sacked their manager.

Personally I thought Englands approach was a bit "sloppy" for want of a better word.

The players need to apply thenselves to the task in hand.

After all, it is The Baggy Greens and they always have a decent pace attack.

Next ODI is Saturday. Should be good.

Or like all limited overs cricket a futile and boring gimmick that is killing the game.

Hardly.

IMHO they are more an add-on to Test Matches than anything else. A Test being, of course, the pinnacle in a professional cricketers career.

Have you ever been to an ODI and T20? I personally think there is room for all three formats and I enjoy all of them. Mind you, a Roses T20 doesn't do my liver any good at all. A top evening out mind....
