Apathy.

Pubs not doing their bit.

Hardly any flags on cars.

Media coverage seems underwhelming.

Teams don't seem arsed.

Supermarkets decked out for Christmas instead of flags and WC stuff.

My WC wall chart isn't even up.

Has the feeling and the anticipation of a RL World Cup.

I dont know what's more depressing the actual apathy or the big cock off of who can pretend they are least arsed and too cool for supporting England.

Lets all pretend we dont know who our players are.

 

spot on

i'm really looking forward to it now

grim, wet & cold out, worlds fucked

so a months worth of world cup football is most welcome imo

just knock the puffery on the head and you won't have your head cut off, simple really

it's coming home

I'm nowhere near how I normally feel leading up to a WC. I'm hoping my mood will change when the thing kicks off.

COY3L.

It’s the current in thing for the “Peter Kay is shit” crowd

Ha ha  Very good point 👏

It is strange in many ways. But I’m willing to give it a chance and enjoy the unusual timing of the event. It is England and a World Cup, so why the hell wouldn’t you?

After a period of what has seemed like very few games I’m passionately looking forward too (Bolton & England), having them happening in the same period is pretty exciting I think.

Add to that all the rest of the WC games, bring it on. Fleetwood Saturday,  Monday off work, pub for midday

... or be the coolest around by saying you hope England lose because Southgate is a decent human being.

Currently pondering golden boat bets 

Fancy Darwin Nunez at 40/1 as a dark horse 

Done Serge Gnabry for the krauts at 50s he’s 20 from 36 in internationals they seem to score plenty but are shite at the back .

I wonder how many people are claiming they don't care because subconciously they expect England to be shite?

And then become an expert and get some pretend kudos by saying any number of things like;

”I knew it was going to be a shit show”

”England will never be good enough at this level”  (despite a semi and final)

”We were never going to get any further than the Quarters”

”We’ve gone backwards”

Therefore…

”Southgate has to go”

”The FA are shit”

”It’s all wrong at grassroots level”

”Why was this player picked?”

”Why wasn’t he playing”

”I’m happy I took my stance and didn’t watch because the whole England set-up is woke and /or It should never have gone ahead in Qatar”

A question:

If the unlikely happens and England go on to win the World Cup for the first time in 56* years will folk still say it was a shit World Cup?

 

 

*Sickens me that Badiel & Skinner’s Three Lions only spoke of 30 years of hurt. Next World Cup will be 60 so best we win it this year.

My 'couldn;t be less arsed about it' is more about the fact that the World Cup is all about extra football in the summer. This is just interrupting the football we already have.

That and I'm cool as fuck with a massive cock, obviously.
