I know a lot aren't interested until the knockout stages but I love the group stage. I've never been to world cup (it's on the bucket list) so my experience is purely through the media/tv but I bloody love it.
I love seeing all the different teams. All the different fan bases. All the different colours of each country, Sadly on that front it's missing the Dutch and the Irish. I love the constant football. I love the stories of different fans drinking and celebrating together peacefully. I love seeing which African team steps up. I love seeing the national pride.
It's sad that we'll soon see countries start to go home. I want it to go on until the eve of the new season.
He said something along the lines of "I have made my thoughts clear on that to the owner" in regards to the pre season games. Was that an innocent throwaway comment or is he unimpressed with the current line up?
Might not be cool with some to show any enthusiasm but really looking forward to this now.
Four games on Saturday. Really craving competitive football.
What games are you most looking forward to? Portugal vs Spain is a decent early game. Germany vs Mexico is the type of game I love at world cups. Really hoping Knudsen gets some game time and he might with games against Peru and Australia.
Edit: To be clear, I have nothing against a second referendum. I just think it's stupid having Soros announce it and so strongly linked to it. Everyone saw the reaction when Obama 'interfered'. Having someone like Soros, who is widely considered as being out for himself, so connected to the campaign won't help IMO.
