So am I sharing with Sprucey?

I will just warn that last time I shared a slot in a TWTD sweepstake, it was 9 years ago, and that was sharing a slot with KJ...
I'm not saying lightning strikes twice, but hello Sprucey...


Ah, I hadn't seen the edit... so it's CoastalBlue that may need to worry?

no, both you and coastal blue now have scotland.

spruce has canada, but yesterday said he was giving them up (which I don't believe).

Tomorrow's the big one for me.

Gonna head to the local, eat a dozen sweet 'n' sour prawn balls, all washed down with a few swift halves of Wherry and watch on as my lil' pot-stickers take on brazil1982's mighty Germany.

It'll be a tough ask, but I'd be happy with a draw from the opening game.

Good luck to all.

france look good. renard's second was a decent header. le sommer looks very good. the right winger has had nice touches. it's one sided and it's tournament football and at this stage you get quite a variation in quality, but I suspect france will look good against much better sides.

I've had the game on; won't pretend I've watched every kick because I've been buzzing about about in and out of the room, but they've looked strong and very capable from what I've seen.

Some nice touches too, flicks here and there.

This could shape up to be an entertaining tournament if that's going to be the standard.

well we're off. france are a decent side with bits of real quality. south korea no real test but let's face it, it's got to be better than division one ...

south africa were exciting in the first half, but have rather imploded. good game to watch though.

Well, what a sickener that was for me and my little bao buns. A one-nil loss to the second favourites is no shame but we'll have to improve on our attacking and pressing. A mere five on target simply won't cut it when we come up against more beatable teams.

My congratulations to brazil1982 and his team of young guns.

brazil look classy. there have already been some decent sides.

china were pretty dirty though.

Bolton-esque at times. Still, could be to our advantage, few MM grind-it-out games just to progress in what is a tough group.

Brazilian footballers looking classy? Whatever next...

Yeah, go on, I'm in.


at the end of the first round of games it all looks good. france, usa, brazil all look very good. on their first half showing england are up there as well. there have been some unbalanced games (usa thailand as i type) but the last 16 is going to be very competitive. when some of the better teams are up against each other it's going to be a good tournament.
