Yes it's that time again. Several weeks of wall-to-wall football as the World Cup takes place.

Who will you be supporting? If, like me, you pick a second team (after England or one of the 'home nations' are eliminated) who are you backing to win the trophy?

And, the biggest question of them all - do you prefer BBC or ITV coverage?!

Goood griefff. Yes it that time again. Now if we were watching the womens world cup i think england could win it. However england men sadly i feel the lack of goals will let us down again.
So im cheering on australia (my brother is from geelong)not that they will be any better.
Winning picks outsiders Belgium or germany.

Sorry all bets are off.
Surly a managerless SPAIN have got to be favourites.

Ladies champion ....... Serena Williams

Mens champion ........ Rafa Nadel

I think you should go with your ❤ not your wallet Marc, so it’s a no brainer. Easier solution tho, just watch Wimbledon instead!

OK, I DID watch the penalties! (Only cos Wim has finished hee). I did LOL re “Wrighty’s lost his glasses!” Hilarious!
Well, that was emotional :p
England win a penalty shoot-out?!
Surely this now means the World Cup is in the bag? :D:foldedhands:
