I have Spain backed to win it since the Euros. I think their posession football in the extreme conditions will be effective in tiring teams out.

Will it be that hot in November?




i would love global qualifying  it be interesting see ireland  having to play a match in Bolivia imagine Ireland playing USA in a qualifier it be a great trip for some people  but it would probably too hard logistically to have teams like cook islands come to Europe.  you would would probably have to have the weaker teams stay in regions then when 80 is left have a global qualifying tournament.

Would only benefit the mid tier UEFA nations. Not inconceivable that all bar 1 of the UEFA teams will make the second round this year. Brazil’s group is the only one where a UEFA team will almost certainly fall. If there was global qualifying you’d probably have 20 of the 32 from Europe.

global qualifying would work if there was no seeding

He also did a lecture on the Welsh and Britishness from i think 2017 which is available.  It's just as good.

Nah, it's better when they get close and fail.  Not as close as the Euro finals last time, but semis or quarters (loss on penos preferably) are pretty much perfect.

Look-Up!

They looked very good when playing at a high tempo and running at opposition (although that's not a great German team). They have some very electric and exciting players but they don't look like a team who can control the tempo of a game that well. Their passing game is not strong enough and they inevitability come up with a stray pass. Look sloppy and error prone in defence when the pressure is on too. They will take beating of course but probably not equipped enough for a tournament like the WC. Would take a very lucky draw for them to be in the shake up and a big improvement in form to boot.

A back three of Dyer (going OK with spurs in fairness), Maguire and Stones/Walker is never keeping a clean sheet against the better teams and this German outfit are bang average by their standards although the 19yo looks to have something about him.

England managers always make the same mistakes. They pick on loyalty and past performance rather than form or ability. Maguire and Shaw are not good enough to play in that team. Picking them leaves others wondering what they have to do to get in the team. Their teammates don't trust them. I can't see Southgate being the Manager in Jan 2023 if he keeps picking Maguire.

Capped by England up to U21 level. They've missed out there.
