  1. I think - as the 48 team Word Cup appears set in stone then the 16 3rd place teams that get knocked out should go into a World 'Trophy' knockout - scrap the 3rd/4th place game in the World Cup and play the trophy final in its place the day before the final. That way - all the qualifying teams still get 3 games as opposed to 2. Not the best idea I know, but one of the main problems with this 48 team thing is team potentially get to the World Cup - play the first 2 games and get knocked out even if they don't lose both games while sitting in their hotel watching the other two teams play the third group game.
  2. Everyone on the Morocco train now??
  3. Kane’s going to end up breaking the record against something like Malta away now in the Euro qualifiers and will probably just have a cry remembering when he should have broken it.
  4. This will be a new way for us to go out with penalties involved.
  5. So will it be a third 1/4 final with an injury time equaliser to go to extra time??
  6. Kane scoring or Loris saving it or it hitting the post I wouldn’t have bet against, but no way did I think he’d sky it.
  7. France are dangerous is not a surprise. We won’t get a clean sheet - just need to take our chances when they come.
  8. The storylines in this World Cup are just immense. I wish we were on the other side of the draw as be brilliant if they got to the final.
  9. Come on 99th minute Ronaldo equaliser that then gets disallowed by VAR.
  10. I think there has been enough drama in the 1/4 finals so Morocco should just score another and win 2-0. None of this late come back nonsense by the team that goes behind in this game.
  11. Are England the only ‘big team’ that don’t roll around on the floor and piss and moan all game?
  12. This is good news for Croatia. This game going just as long (probably), a few suspensions and minor knocks for whoever goes through and maybe a mass brawl at the end still to come. Modric will be rubbing his hands at being in a better state at 37 than most of the opposition.
  13. Do you think, like in grounds up and down the country every weekend/mid week, people just leave these World Cup games early, regardless of the score, to get ahead of the traffic even when they are in the middle of nowhere in Qatar. How much drama would you have missed.
  14. It could still be the Messi or the Mbappe or the Bellingham or the Ronaldo World Cup but maybe it will be the Weghorst World Cup.
  15. How many goals in front of France do we need to be on 90 minutes going into stoppage time to be able to remotely relax? 3/4?
  16. England vs Argentina is the most interesting final isn’t it - even without the bias. Copa America winners vs the Euro finalists (with the winners not qualifying). Can Messi win the World Cup (in what must be his last chance) Can Southgate’s England go one better again on the last two tournaments. And then the ‘86/‘98 knock out games history. I guess it might also be Portugal vs Argentina but now Ronaldo is a sulking sub.....
  17. Im contemplating compiling an all time list thread once I’ve finished the comedy one. But we did the decade ones from 80’s onwards year by year and I was thinking a general top ten/twenty all time would be far to diverse so maybe doing a top 20 per decade or splitting into 3 - top 20 pre 80’s top 20 80’s/90’s and top 20 2000 onwards?? I’ll
  18. True - but those other 6 teams all look either on it and/or have a superstar(s)/potential superstar(s) looking dangerous. I'm predicting England Portugal semi final. England have a goal lead in the last minute of extra time and are desperate to avoid penalties. Ramos looks certain to score, but wait, Ronaldo pushes him out the way to take the shot himself and skies it over the bar.
  19. I reckon 6/8 quarter finalists have got a decent shout of winning it. Croatia just don't have the legs/players to go one better than 4 year ago and Morocco probably won't be able to keep a team that shoots instead of passes at bay. Everyone else has a shot I think - it feels like a really good last 8.
  20. Whoever is Ramos’s agent is a happy man tonight as he is now worth additional World Cup zillions and the transfer window opens in less than a month.
  21. Hopefully Portugal go out tonight as well with added Ronaldo crying.
