2018 FIFA World Cup


#303

Can this start already? I’m bored as fuck


#304

I mean if anyone from England was going to make it surely it had to be Kane lol


#305

I’m guessing Adidas had some sort of deal with FFT judging by that front cover haha


#306

So that Pogba wouldn’t feel like the biggest mug on there.


#307

Or Sterling but Lingard?

Looks like @will24 has a point, deffo an Adidas ting.


#308

Kane was the solo cover star on the previous issue, so it makes sense that it’s not him.

But why Welé wasn’t a shoe in for the position is beyond me!


#309

Kane is quite boring tbh. Lingard has personality


#310

By personality you mean he’s a bellend?


#311

Beckham was a bellend but how many years did we have to suck that up. Thank fuck that sad saga has finished now.


#312

Especially for us two it still seems so far away.


#313

How? Players like him and Pogba literally get hated on for having a personality lol. Should every player be completely numb?


#314

Evra has a personality and is quite funny. Eboue had a personality. These two are just a couple of self-conceited pricks.


#315

Evra kicked a fan though, surely being arrogant is better than coming out with a violent outburst like that


#316

Now that, is personality.


#317

:joy: Ok, but if Evra was capable of that he could’ve easily hit a child in the same way, which would’ve been vile


#318

England have a chance of doing well if they keep their cool. They are a talented young group. Nerves always seem to get the better of them though when it comes down to it.


#319

Theres a mistake waiting to be pounced upon in that England defence when playing the ball out. Havent got the ability to do it regular. Defo going to happen.


#320

We were exposed by diagonal balls against Italy and Uruguay. Subtle weaknesses for us maybe but to the big teams at the World Cup they were gaping holes in otherwise tight games. Can’t afford that at this level.

We don’t have a creative midfield set up this time around. It’s more industrious than anything else.

We really have to get the system spot on and be tactically disciplined to the core.

We’ve failed to stop playmakers having time and space to pick out passes in recent tournaments. Intensity has to be higher and maybe pressing and counters are our best bet.


#321

Keep their cool with so many Tottenham players in the squad? :mustafi:


#322

Anyone seen this abnomination of a World Cup “anthem” from Freddie Flintoff and Ricky Wilson?

Cancel the World Cup now

:gabriel:
