That’s how it should be. Picking how you think it will play out vs how you want it to play out is boring.

I have my two favorite teams going at it in the finals. And the rest are all just mostly what I’d like to see happen

Australia and Mexico?

A few I pick based on what I think it most likely. Like Mexico never making it past a quarter final. But there's no money to win or lose here, so might as well go for broke on the finals and dream big.

If I win I'll just drink double the amount.

You can change any of your picks up to the cut off date. Mine are in, Argentina v Belgium in the final. The plucky Aus team will get knocked out in the semis.

The best semis I have seen so far is from an American

England vs Iceland

Mexico vs Peru

Mexico beating England in the final.



England beating Iceland?

Ridiculous

For a bit of fun, the site has a quick 10 question quiz. No googlings.

You can also see where you are in that quiz league

I got 6/10.

You'll notice someone there also got 6.

Is team argie really that goood?... Seriously?...
Other than messi, who Never shows up for tournaments, whos there?... If anyone is going to carry that team to Victory, its aguero.
The brahmas got Stomped in the final, at home, last WC, and other then +neymar, they have le55 talent than last time around.
Team Blockhead hasnt shown up for 4 years, FFS the sardine munchers won the last euro on the back of ronaldo.
Belgium, ya, they might do something...
Denmark... yaokwhatevah, they mi55ed thier chance last goround.

An asian/me team making it out of group?.... Ha! Its even a stretch for an african team this time around.

Go Mexico!

16.

Almost a proper league!

Welcome DJ and Dave Mbogo

Please complete both group and knock out stages before next Wednesday

Failure to do so will mean:

1. 'Snotty' email from myself (and ask for tit photos)

2. Being cut from league if not completed by deadline.

If you have only partially completed, you will be kept in the league for your own annoyance and general ridicule by others.

Anyone claiming to be fans and who doesn't register can fuck off from WC threads as far as I am concerened

Currently on notice:

Lost Soul
Brodie Bruce (although he has promised)
Meatfree
Argo (if he doesn't complete in time he can double do one - I will just block his postings for the entirety of the tournament, thus not ruining my experience)

Who else?

The 'old goat' Jed gets a free pass.

7 days to go....

Don't laugh at them, bundles. Its not nice.

Speaking of Aussies, welcome Brodie.

18!

Now that's a proper league, and not 6 fake F4Js handles like last time.

14 fully complete.

The following to complete:
Brodie
Pisser
Argo

Then its Super Sunday!!!

France vs Australia
Argentina vs Iceland
