World Cup 2018


Recommended Posts

Right then, I know we've got the thread about the dodgy bids for 2018 and 2022 already, but I suppose the 2018 event should have its own one really. Let's start with the pots for the draw (which takes place on 1 December).

 

Pot 1

 Russia
 Germany
 Brazil
 Portugal
 Argentina
 Belgium
 Poland
 France
    

Pot 2

 Spain
 Peru
 Switzerland
 England
 Colombia
 Mexico
 Uruguay
 Croatia
    

Pot 3

 Denmark
 Iceland
 Costa Rica
 Sweden
 Tunisia
 Egypt
 Senegal
 Iran
    

Pot 4

 Serbia
 Nigeria
 Australia
 Japan
 Morocco
 Panama
 South Korea
 Saudi Arabia

 

There'll be the usual shenanigans to ensure that (to quote Wikipedia) "As with previous editions, no group may have more than one team from any continental confederation with the exception of UEFA, which may have no more than two in a group."

 

With that in mind, who do you fancy for Gareth's Brave Boys?

There’s just nowt in midfield. No flair, one-paced, no vision but they do all run around a lot which is what crap managers like Southgate love

 

Eh? Isn't Dele Alli supposed to be the greatest midfielder England has produced since Glenn Hoddle?

Beyond Dele Alli there's definitely a lack of creativity in the middle of the park like

We could potentially end up in this group: 

 

Poland

England

Iran

Saudi Arabia 

 

There's always a group of death, but this one looks like a group of shite

 

 

A group made up of Muslims and Poles. It's a little Englander's dream.

loftus cheek impressed in the recent friendlies. he may as well throw the kids in tbh. 

 

i just hope he doesn't play henderson alongside dier. that's just not good enough pairing at international level. you need one of your deep central midfielders to be capable of keeping the ball under pressure and playing it forwards.

It's a shame Oxlade-Chamerlain hasn't developed as you would hope because he looked like he might've been just the sort of player to have in a midfield 3.
