Qatar won't win anything but England will win the virtue signalling. The FA we will defy FIFA and Kane will sport a one love armband. 

Who gives a fuck if we are on the first plane home? We'll have won no matter what the results of the football games are.

Arise Sir Gareth?

Quite looking forward to the Iran match now though.

For the first time I can remember, I am not looking forward to any of them. Wrong venue, wrong time of year, wrong focus.

I suppose that contributing further to the Welsh inferiority complex would be alright. 

Maybe the reverse psychology will work and we will actually win something?  It seems that the focus though is not totally on football so most likely more of the same. Also rans.

Even more so as Bolton will still be playing through it. As much as I like an international tournament, and obviously want England to do well, it doesn’t come anywhere near to how much I want Bolton to win. Seeing as we’re still playing at the same time, I think I’ll be even less bothered about it - I’d rather us win all our matches over the period than England do well, a goal v Shrewsbury would mean more than any that England could score.

For once I'm with @bolty58on this one. The hypocrisy of FIFA on this is astonishing and only made worse that other nations around the world didn't boycott when they saw what was going on. 

I only hope that the homophobic sexist pricks in group A get an absolute battering each game and fail to score a goal.

Human nature will kick in though, and I'll find it hard not to get excited when England are on. 

Hopefully Ronaldo will be in tears by the end of the group stage. Probably an arrestable offence for a guy in Qatar.

All the outrage initially came to nowt. Once the bent fuckers in FIFA were flushed out, it should have changed then.

It didn't happen. 

Now that it's almost here, then the likes of Lineker (and to an extent) the FA can do one. All these calls for players to "come out" during the tournament is pathetic. 

The teams are now preparing to go, and it's time the media etc started to get behind the players and staff, and dropped this constant questioning of them about stuff which is beyond their control.

Folk saying they won't watch it- get a grip, it's still our country playing and they should be supported.

Yeah. Defo think its a few things for me:

midseason

weather

Qatar

watching that Italia 90 documentary and its widely acknowledged that ‘the football nation’ of Italy made that tournament. 
 

Qatar was bought on bungs and I think no one denies it anymore.
