i think where its held affects who wins. 

these "hispanic" teams wont do it the middle east. imo. bar costa rica maybe (anglosphere surnames)

think croats or france might cope best with the foreigness of it. 

england might win it if its ever held in australia or wherever in june. its probably why they got so far in 2018.

Ive gone from being my usual England gammon we are going to win the world cup to be happy if we reach the quarters.

Watching that front line of Real last night, fuck me what would they do to Stones and Maguire 🤦‍♂️

Going through our probable 11 theres only Pickford, Kane and Foden flourishing at the minute.


that the partnership thats been to a semi and final and kept the most cleansheets / coceeded the least

Maguire is in serious decline. Not arsed about past tournaments, he's not good enough right now.

We lack pace in the centre of defence.

I agree he's not in the best of form, and i'm all for picking players on form

But i dont like to tinker with the spine of the best england team we've had since 66

I assume, Pickford, Stones, Maguire, Rice & Kane are unshiftable

Think Bellingham comes in for Phillips

Tbf they usually wheel out doom porn for any hosts that isn't a fancy European country. We were even expected to be met with rampaging nazis at the last World Cup in Russia. Same at the Ukraine/Poland euros.


Just gotta accept 1000s of slaves have died making the stadiums where footballers will be kicking bags of air about and the gays can't be bumming each other all over the place

Hes decent but faces nothing like the pace of the premier league and fuckers like Vinny J and Rody G.

I think we need more players that can deal with euro style football, than the bigger powerfull type in the prem.

Think I'm just gonna try and watch it for the football on offer from the others. We seem hopeless at the moment can even see us struggling to get out that group! We just seem to be clueless.

Am hoping Southgate has a masterplan but even allowing for our last two tournaments can't see it
