    General World Cup 2022 European Draw

    https://www.uefa.com/european-qualifiers/news/0258-0e2bb3490b69-0abf5d9bc2fa-1000--2022-world-cup-qualifying/ For the most part, seems like England have continued their run of easy groups. The teams from pots 3-6 (Hungry, Albania, Andorra, San Marino) shouldn't cause any bother at all.....and...

    League One is a great league

    This is not me lacking ambition, or saying I don't want to get promotion this season. I do - I think it would be great to take a crack at the Championship...... ......but I do think that right now, League One is an excellent league and a lot of fun to play in. There's this unique mix of...

    Side for the 1st Test?

    Not an easy decision picking 11 from the squad of 14: Joe Root (capt), Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler (wk), Sam Curran, Joe Denly, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Olly Stone, Chris Woakes. Assuming that Stokes is going to bowl a bit...

    Wan-Bissaka

    Going to Man U, and apparently worth 50m - including 45m up front. https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/48770843 Dear Lord. I remember Kyle Walker moving for about the same a couple of years ago, and thinking 'that's a hell of a lot for a right back'. But he at least had about 200 Premier League...

    Third of the way through......

    …...the group stage, at least. For me: India look the best team. Top order are in great form; they've got hitters in the middle order, a good pace attack and good spinners. Can't see them failing to make the semis, and they'll be a tough out there. New Zealand top the table, and have...

    The next eight games.....

    .....look pretty straightforward on paper. 16th, 17th, 22nd, 23rd, 10th, 12th, 18th, 24th. If we can string together a few battling performances like yesterday and/or some quality performances like we've seen from time to time this season, then I don't think it's out of the question that we...

    England Optimism?

    Anyone else getting just a little hopeful? That's two pre-WC friendlies, and two very comfortable wins. Nigeria are at least as good as Tunisia, and Costa Rica are significantly better than Panama. Have to think we'll at least finish second in the group, and then have a chance to beat anyone...

    Sooooooo.......

    .....now that we are are mathematically safe, and there's no danger of jinxing things - who do we want to play next year? Guaranteed coming down - Sunderland To be joined by - two from Burton, Bolton, Barnsley, Birmingham & Reading. Guaranteed coming up from League Two - Accrington, Luton...

    Wenger

    Man, this forum has changed. A few years ago, if I'd come on here several hours after Arsene Wenger departed, I'd have found a 17 page thread (with 16 and a half of the pages being Baldy, Junior and Boogaloo going back and forth.....). Now, I'm starting one myself. But, thoughts people? Seems...
