2018 FIFA World Cup - Wikipedia


I'm hoping that England are drawn into positions B2, D3, G3 or G4 so that all their games will be outside usual UK office hours and people will not desert the office with mystery illnesses to watch the games.

Expecting failure, so I can't be disappointed but I'd prefer to ignore the whole thing altogether because the media keep banging on about it and then the fallout from the inevitable early exit or good run. Let's hope they don't win it because the press coverage will be unbearable.

I'm not anti-England, not really anti-football/soccer; it's just that in the UK it's just so overbearingly talked about to the exclusion of major world events or any other sport all year round even when they're not playing.


Anyone else boycotting it? (Personally I'd prefer to Boycott it another way if I could afford to retire)

I will be boycotting it, but the reasons have nothing to do with football. Forum rules prohibit me from getting into that Linux
