Default Russia 2018: Not far off now

Happened to be in Zurich this week and stopped in at the FIFA World Football Museum. Getting excited for this years World Cup, even with the embarrassment of the US team in qualifying.

My primary interest in the 2018 World Cup Finals ended last November when Northern Ireland lost out to Switzerland in the play-offs. I’d travelled to all of the Northern Ireland away matches in the qualifiers and it was a great effort by the team but just didn’t have the fortune to make it to the Finals for the first time since Mexico 1986.


Still, looking forward to the Finals. I love attending football matches live but rarely watch on television - but the World Cup Finals are something of an exception here.

Default Despite it...

being in Russia... I am super excited for the World Cup... I think that it is the best tournament out there and cannot wait!

Any dark horses out there? What are the opinions of you board members?

I can't wait! With my side (Southampton) in imminent danger of relegation in the Premier League it has been a troubled recent bit of football. The crushing disappointment of the US not qualifying out of a group in which that should NEVER happen kind of takes some excited anticipation out of this World Cup for me, but with several of the traditional European powerhouses also being dealt out maybe we can have an unexpected run from someone ala Iceland in the 2016 Euro Championships. One thing is certain for me - I will root against Brazil no matter who they play.

Default 2018 World Cup

Brazil and Germany are the class of the tournament and i would be surprised at any early exit for either of them. With half of the Bayern Munich team comprising the National Team they will be a difficult draw for anyone. I would say Brazil has the most talent and they pack the punch of a heavyweight. Belgium has some of the most talent as well but as usual I think they will lay a big one in the round of 16. Cant wait for the tournament as well--I hope Messi has a good showing and if you can ever put World Cup Champion next to his name that will likely settle most debates revolving around the GOAT.
