Can't wait for the World Cup personally. Always wanted to go to Russia, so really curious about that side of things. Hopefully we can have the 1pm games on at work.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Clattenburg's obviously been trying to show him the ropes.

Don't think I've ever been as unexcited by a World Cup as this one. Really weird.

Suppose we should savour it as after this one and the next they'll be increasing it from 32 to 48 teams, and then the tournament is truly fucked.
Look on the bright side, if we are still around, it'll be a bigger sweep with bigger prizes.

What bullshit is this based on? Something meaningless like results in qualifiers?

"A little trickery" was employed for the 1998 World Cup draw to ensure France and Brazil did not meet until the final, disgraced former Uefa president Michel Platini has claimed.

"If we finished first in the group and Brazil finished first, we could not meet before the final."

He laughed as he went on: "We did not spend six years organising the World Cup to not do some little shenanigans. Do you think other World Cup hosts did not?"

France look pretty strong to me, stronger than England that's for sure. Do they have a tough draw?
Simply simply lovely

i read that on teletext this morning.. i've thought similar at previous world cups, where the holders and they favorites are drawn on different sides of the draw.. should do the balls in the bowls routine live, during the world cup.
