    World Cup Russia 2018

    Just over a month before it starts so here we go:

    Who should be in The England Team?

    England should get out of their Group but how far will they go? Semi Final is above expectations!

    Do you know anybody that is going and after France would you consider going?


    Should be an interesting couple of months.

    I wouldn't pick most to play in a pub team. But hey they've got a real chance. There's nowt out there to be scared of, there all as poor as each other, with a few teams possessing SOME class. But if they don't turn up then they'll be out. So who knows. Could be another semi final run. Hoo hoo hoo hoo hooo hoo! Get at 'em !!!!

    I think 1/4s would flatter us to be honest, well probably scrape through the group and then lose a heroic penalty shootout.
    We have a couple of decent individuals in the team, but the team as a whole is poor, we seem to lack any sort of cohesion and understanding in how we play.
    Defence worries me massively and we lack someone to unlock other teams ie Salah, Messi, Ronaldo, Bale, that really top class attacking midfielder.

    We've probably got to the stage now where are expectations are so low we can meet them. People are finally wising up that the quality of the premiership is not replicated in the national team. If we get out of the group I'd say it's a decent achievement nowadays.

    I'm quite impressed with what I've seen of Southgate in that he seems to play players in positions they are comfortable in and systems we can play. Those systems may well be a bit out of date, but at least we should make a decent fist of it. You never know, no one seems able to be defend at club level any more so if we have a decent defence that should be a start.

    Good young manager and some decent young players breaking through, I think they will play much better than many think.
    IMO the only real weakness in the team are the men between the sticks.

    Would I consider going.....no chance, and that's no because of the football.
    Far too dangerous and it won't improve with comrade Putin at the helm,

    If England end up playing the likes of Hart, Smalling, Henderson, Oxlaide-Chanberlain and Milner then it will be hilarious watching such bog standard footballers fail.
