Okay. Who’s up for this? Just post a comment (any comment) in this bloeug and I’ll take that as a sign you’re in. A completely impartial and random draw (I promise) will take place early next week and participants will be informed of their allocated teams in good time.
I have to say I’m looking forward to this forthcoming World Cup more than I have done for a long time. Maybe it’s to do with so many of the loathsome players that routinely made up the competition squads no longer being present, or maybe it has something to do with the thought that we might actually achieve something of note this time round.
The two recent friendlies were full of promise and so long as Southgate can see what (pretty much) the rest of the county can see (i.e. pairing Rashford with Kane up front) and a Quarter Finals place (at the very least) could be on the cards. Germany aside I really don’t think there is an outstanding team at this year’s tournament and it looks like it could be one of the most open competitions for a long time.
The Taff shekels will be going on Germany and if that doesn’t put the mockers on their chances nothing will.
