As the thread from last season is getting very long now...
Russia v Saudi Arabia to kick it all off, sounds completely underwhelming but I’ve a feeling it’ll have goals.
Saudi Arabia have lost all three of their warmup games to Peru, Germany and Italy. Russia haven’t won any of their last six friendlies in build up to World Cup.
Key players to look out for: Dzagoev and Golovin are both technically excellent, expect them to pull the strings for Russia. Golovin linked to Juventus. Fedor Smolov, who we’ve been tentatively linked with, is their main goal threat.
For Saudi Arabia, they don’t have too much individual quality as you might expect, but Al Muwahallad is a tricky winger who’s been called the Saudi Arabian Messi
Beat me to it Mutchy
A Saudi win for me 1-2. Putin goes scarlet and all hell breaks loose.
And cancels the tournament!
Sorry Skrilla. I merged the threads and then tried to delete my first post so that you took over, but it deleted the whole thread.
Watching the pre match build up now, got me jammies on and a cup of tea. Thinking of eating the last remnants of a chicken pie I made last night for breakfast, cold of course.... Happy day's.
I have no words.
The World Cup in your homeland is the most important thing in the life of any fan.
I wish everyone to experience these feelings someday.
This is a dream.
Not expecting a classic but who knows.
Erm Robbie Williams?
Are Russia about to host the 1998 World Cup?
Worst opening fixture of all time?
I'm just tuning in for the opening and closing ceremonies.
Jk, but seriously what am I watching right now?
That'l do get him off
Let Me Entertain You probably only just got released
I wonder how many people in the world just had to google Robbie Williams
I don't feel like I've learned anything about Russian culture or history yet
WTF is this opening ceremony about? Maybe they think that he is still famous!!!!!!
Yes! The real Ronaldo!
Oh **** I used to love that music video when I was like 8
Yep! Just finished off the pie...hope the game gets more interesting than the opening ceremony. I'm so bored I'm counting the amount of women I would want to sleep with as they pan over the crowd. It's quite high so far but there again, I'm not too fussy.
Did he just say the Saudi Messi
Someone had to cancel at the last minute right?
It's at times like this you start to miss David Coleman.
He could inject urgency and drama into describing a WRVS coffee morning.
Good God I love World Cup month <3
cant stand clive tyldesley, talks complete rubbish, no doubt he will be begging to hear some racism
How the hell did he get that gig?
Bored of this already...someone put the wall back up.
The two biggest crude oil producing nations on earth according to Tyldesley. Grudge match!!
Putins watching. I'd be putting a bit more effort into singing that national anthem if I were amongst the Russian lads.
Sergey Ignashevich is 39 in a month.
How long until we have a full blown VAR controversy?
Oh Jeez....American commentators, yuk! It's like listening to a combination of basketball, NFL with a touch of Saccer!
No disrespect to my U.S.A Wolves compadres .....
Wholeheartedly agree. I hate watching football with American commentators
Ian Darke's call for the Donovan goal against Algeria is tattooed on my brain. Greatest moment in US Soccer (sorry) history. But he's still with ESPN
My first WC in the States was 94. Used to watch it on the Spanish Chanel's as the networks were breaking for commercials....lol
Boom! Back from work just in time! Here we go!
Not a bad idea! I like watching Liga MX sometimes just for Andres Cantor.
If you still have one of those 1994 USA kits lying around I'll buy it off you
Anyone else experiencing a slight jump in coverage between some of the cameras? Or do I need a new TV?
1-0 Russia. Putin’s happy!
