I was never so uninteresting in a World Cup and it has nothing to do with all the bad talk about Qatar. Maybe it's because it's happening during an unnatural period of the year combined with the fact that football in my country is at its lowest ever.

I’m not sure how many of this World Cup I can stand to watch if Lineker, Neville and the rest of the woke mob keep crying while sleeping in five star hotels and collecting a pay cheque.

In the U.K. premier league footballers still won’t come out publicly, migrants die in hotels, millions use food banks, police protect terrorist protestors over the citizens they disrupt….But these virtue signallers are taking up time on football shows to act holier than thou about a country that we’ve all known about for the past 12 years.

Just stick to the fucking football. And on that note, would love Argentina to win it. But as a Welshman I’m just here to see us deal with England 😂

I was hoping Ecuador would run up the score. This World Cup is a train-wreck, with it well known that the only reason Qatar received the World Cup was massive corruption. Russia and Qatar back to back. Why not just award the next one to North Korea?

I'm obviously rooting for Canada, but it just sucks that it has to be held in late fall.

It's also a reminder that, yeah, this is a tiny country with about 300,000 citizens, counting the elderly and toddlers. And it's probably already a feat to get one-tenth of that population into a stadium like Al-Bayt. To expect them to also stick around for a defeat might have been too much to ask. And that's a bit depressing.
Lol awarding the world cup to a country with this small a number of local support. Probably more Indian expats in the country supporting other bigger footballing nations. lol

FIFA, an organisation that plasters human rights advocacy all over their marketing, have came down hard on teams looking to wear armbands in support of LGBT rights - Gone as far as to threaten bookings and suspensions. The teams that were willing to do it, even if it meant getting fined, have now backed down.

Woke capitalism folks. Drink it in.

Apart from the players pointlessly crawling on the ground before the kick off and the ridiculous penalty it was a pleasing start from England. Defence needs working on, I expect Wokegate will switch to a back three against tougher opposition and bring Walker or Dier in. Saka needs to retain possession better and Pickford needs to stop taking unnecessary risks.

Grealish came on, looked sharp, scored a goal and made a few dives. For diving connoisseurs here's floppy haired Jack's full repertoire of cheaty falls to the ground - the kick out, the drag, the slider, the uneven step and the air trip. He's a master of his craft.
