I thought we had to chose a team which hadn't already been taken! However, I will stick with England, even though I don't really believe they have a hope in hell!

I am still shocked that Dr Oboogie didn't pick Spain given his love for all things La Liga.

imho there should be other categories such as

Most Scotland like performance (ie embarrassing defeat) in group stage such as

France losing to Australia or Peru

Argentina losing to Iceland

Brazil losing to Switzerland or Costa Rica

Belgium to Panama

Spain losing to Iran or Morocc0

Portugal losing to Iran or Morocco

ENGLAND losing to Panama or Tunisia

Super Leo? When and how did I earn that?

 

But I have to admit that I actually look forward to this World Cup. And I would love nothing more than seeing Messi lift the trophy. But he's not going to. He once again had to drag Barça through a season leaving him physically exhausted.

Yes Andrew it was a close run thing and I was almost swayed to pick Spain as only 3 of there players in the squad play in TGLITW* so obviously their team will be so much fresher that everyone else as, apart from those three, they have all had an easy season behind them and must be in contention, but as I said earlier if the French attitude is correct they will be there or thereabouts.

Brazil 5/1

Germany  5/1

Spain 6/1

France 6/1

Argentine 9/1

Belgium 12/1

England 14/1

Portugal 25/1

I think you'll find that Aberdeen and Iceland's Kari Arnason will be in Russia.

Portugal, Belgium  Sweden and costa rica? also have Scottish based players in their squads - the difference with McLaren is he played for the Scottish under 20s once according to wiki

It's a tough one to call this time, Spain/Germany/France/Brazil all great squads. Going with Brazil, their team looks fantastic and it's been too long so I'd like to see them win it.

Hope this WC is gonna be a memorable one, I think the last two WC's I really enjoyed were the '98 and '02 ones. But maybe that's just because of the nostalgia.
