I predict England will do terribly as usual, because they seem to be s**t at football compared to just about everyone else on planet earth !!

I also predict that Russian "Ultras" will kick f**k out of English fans wherever and whenever !!

Personally, I have never understood hooliganism. You don't see that in ice-hockey (or almost any other sport). I think England has done well to undo most of it since the horrible 80's and 90's.
It would be more than stupid to go back there again. Hooliganism is for criminals.

It's a joke, I guess?, Buttons. Both Holland and Italy failed to qualify.

Of course Putin Russia is an authoritarian state, Slewan. Everyone knows that. But that's not the reason to why Italy and Holland aren't participating. They didn't qualify. Simple as that.

Germany, Spain and Brazil seem to be the front runners.
Brazil has completely rebuilt their prograM AFTER that terrible showing in '14.
Spain is still strong.
Germany is the big favorite because their team is so deep! They can outfit two world class teams easily; maybe even three. But being the big favorite is a tough place to be in.

I fully agree with your list thumbs up

I`d add France - they have a great team.

Scotland have ‘boycotted’ every World Cup and Euros for 20 years sad smiley .Absolutely shameful for a country which played a huge part in the early development of the beautiful game. But history, quite rightly entitles you to nothing. Hard work and skill is needed. Scottish Football is controlled and ruined by 2 clubs, very badly run and rotten to the core and until that changes, I cannot see us qualifying for anything, nor do we deserve to.

Italy and the Netherlands will be fine longer term. Good solid football infrastructure in those countries and their failure to qualify this time will be a mere temporary blip. You’ll both be back thumbs up.

As for winning it this time around, Either France or Germany. There’s usually a surprise package who come in from nowhere and do very well. Egypt could be that team.

Re: The IORR World Cup 2018 Prediction Game

I love Iceland's team, like everyone else. I would love to see a smaller nation win for once.

This actually applies more to Club football. There is absolutely no parity in European Football. all about money; and the same teams win over and over again.
I wonder if that is what gzregorz meant, when he spoke of two teams ruining Scottish ball.

i disagree grzegorz67 that scottish football is controlled and ruined by 2 clubs.

remember one of those clubs liquidated after being found to have knowingly broken rules for over a decade under the watchfull eye of a corrupt sfa who did nothing other than welcome a new club into the league with no accounts or history.

celtic on the other hand play by the rules.

the problem with scottish football are 2 fold.

1. like other leagues money talks, its the way of the modern game. its why leagues are so uninteresting, and why the champions league is a bore.

2. scotland simply do not create the type of players they need to, to compete at the level it thinks it should be competing at.

saying that though, we will eventually qualify for tournaments, although world cups will be harder as there are fewer european entrants.

I'm not remotely interested in the game, but I will be paying attention to all those punch-ups between one set of idiots and another set of idiots - that will no doubt feature on our TV screens in due course !!??

What IS it with these morons ? Too many Smarties for breakfast ?

OK everybody - just a quick update. We have 11 players so far with still 5 weeks to go.

I think the record number of players we ever had was about 23 so I'm sure we can beat that this time.

Good luck to everybody.
