    England, baby!

    We may not have a chance in Hell (seriously, any reasonable, objective assessment of the situation will tell you that we don't), but that doesn't mean I won't be cheering on the Three Lions for all I'm worth!

    As an American of Italian descent, this year's Cup is a major disappointment for me. But, I always have my boys from the Old Country to cheer on. So, let's go, England! This can be your year -- Do it!

    I'm a huge soccer nerd, and a big USA fan, but in lieu of rooting for the Stars & Stripes, I'll be pulling for Iceland, Belgium, England, and Egypt. I have a ton of English heritage (like 80%), so let's go Three Lions!

    Cool article, though I disagree vehemently with their conclusion...

    https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/44431262

    I mean, really, Belgium? They eat nothing but French Fries and Brussels Sprouts! And, they speak French! How can they be the favorite to win the Cup?????

    England, baby! Let's go!!!

    Likewise. Even though I have more English blood in me, my dads dad came from Germany, and I have a German surname, so...... ;)

    This should help:

    http://www.newsweek.com/world-cup-d...d-know-about-worlds-most-watched-event-959755

    Short version:

    "The 32 teams have been divided in eight groups of four and the tournament consists of 64 games spread across four weeks. The top two teams from each group go through to round of 16, where eight teams are eliminated. The quarterfinals select the four teams that will compete in the semifinals, with the two winners earning the right to compete for the World Cup trophy."

    Record it then you can watch it later and zoom through the boring bits. Just hope they have some decent commentators who know what they are describing not Oz TV “personalities” chatting away over a video feed.

    A world cup without Italy (and The Netherlands)? Bah...:(

    Spain fires their coach one day before the start of the tournament. Smart move?

    I'm English on both parental sides - as far back as I've been able to ascertain (a few centuries) and totally underwhelmed by the prospect of this tournament. Gareth Southgate as a manager?!

    We're up to 32 teams and by the time that Mexico, Canada and the USA host it in 2026, it'll be 48 national teams. That's almost 25% of all the nations on the planet.

    FIFA is turning it into an even bigger money-spinner that it is, already. The final 48 will almost pick itself.

    I "hope" England does well but, given recent vents, I'm hoping that Spain wins. However, if the Belgians can mesh as a team, I suspect that they have the squad most capable of winning.

    I just hope our guys score a few goals and maybe sneak into the second round....:rolleyes:

    I wonder who this years outsiders will be? ... the ones who surprise a few of the big names....


    it's a big stage to shine on....
