Qatar 2022

Recommended Posts

Is anyone thinking about going?

My pal just sent through some of the pics of the stadiums as he is working there just now. They look superb if truth be told... albeit shady as fuck how they've been built and Qatar even getting the World Cup.

Canada just opened the scoring (66') in El Salvador with a bizarre goal in the vein of Mackie's v Kille.

African qualifiers through up some tough fixtures. Shame to see Nigeria and Egypt out but pish like Morroco and Tunisia through.

Hopefully Scotland can qualify and get some Morrocan revenge.... get Leighton back in goals

Due to the vagaries of the draw (and as worked out on pie & bovril) we've got about 1 in 3 chance of being drawn with Qatar. Still think we'd have a better chance against England though.

I am beyond disillusioned with modern football but I’m still a massive geek for the World Cup and to a lesser extent the euros. It’s just about the only thing left that hasn’t been completely ruined by money, yet.

When was the last time Nigeria or Egypt did anything at a world cup? I went to Russia vs Egypt at the last WC - Egypt were awful and their fans were the worst I've ever sat amongst!  Hordes of dumpy little men, dressed head-to-toe in designer gear and bling! Most of them weren't even watching the game!

Aye they are both usually shite right enough. 

I find it mental how shite Nigeria are. Like we are always disappointed in Scotland.... but Nigeria is a football crazy nation of 211 million people plus maybe even double that eligible across the world..... and here they are giving Leon Balugon who barely gets a game for the huns nearly 50 caps

I wouldn't judge these teams by the fans at the ground- the ones that could afford to travel probably aren't representative of the fans at home. 

The world cup still does it for me. You might discover a wee team which plays exciting football, see the holders/favourites get pumped, not know if France will win the thing or go on strike. It's still a tournament which can't be bought. Except for the hosting, obviously.

Would be goals in the game.

The other two would be nice and open too.

Don't want boring shite like Switzerland again.

Avoid Ghana & Poland, quite a few of them folks round these parts.

I did celebrate when Scotland were drawn out if truth be told.

The biggest and best chance they'll ever have to get through if they qualify.

Iran are shite.

England are shite.

USA will be tough.
