    I wouldn't say it's hatred but it is annoying when somebody posts on a discussion about football when they don't like it just to say they don't like it. I don't like American Football and if I saw a discussion about it I would ignore it because I don't like it so it would be of no interest or benefit to me to get involved..... Just a thought

    Brazil to beat Spain in the Final.
    England to not make it out of the group stage.
    Neymar to be the most talked about player.
    English newspapers to run stories on how England could pull off a win against Italy using obscure facts/results from history.
    Photos of crying English fans.

    Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlain out for three weeks after picking up a knee injury in last night's friendly. The bad start just gets worse and we haven't even started the tournament yet!

    Don't think it's the end of the world Chambo's good but I don't think we were ever going to be pinning all our hopes on him. Someone always gets injured in the build up to a tournament anyway

    Who do people think are going to struggle in the world cup or not do as well as they should on paper.... I think that Netherlands will under perform, similar to what happened to them in Euro 2012.

    I think the USA will storm it. There showcase goalpost changing routine cannot be countered.

    I think Messi will underperform, never performed at a major tournament

    I definitely agree with that. On the contrary, I think Ronaldo will shine again.

    Brazil are probably favourites because of home advantage, and other than Spain, I think the other European teams will struggle as they normally do in South American tournaments. But I would like a Germany or England win (the latter being VERY unlikely!)

    I'd agree with that, I can see Ronaldo carrying portugal to the quarters.

    I think Germany are going to struggle with playing their high tempo pressing game in that kind of heat and humidity. Spain will keep the ball which is going to stand them in good stead. I think if England could get to the quarter finals that should be seen as a decent performance, obviously any further would be brilliant.

    England bunting is going up in the office soon, shirts at the ready too. Landed with Japan in the sweep stake here and thanks to a friend who is currently working there i'm all kitted out to show my support for them too. I think it's safe to say I won't get much wear out of either before both are out! The banter at my school is getting pretty intense, should be good to see how it plays out.

    Well, @nephilim made a good point in the other thread, that Germany have built their own resort which is only an hour away from each stadium they have to play in. Whereas all the other European teams have long flights or coach journeys. So, they'll definitely be feeling more refreshed for their matches. Although the humidity will hurt most of the players.

    I drew Spain in my sports club sweepstake so I am now fully expecting them to be eliminated in the group stage...

    I didn't realise that, to be fair I would never count out the germans, they always perform at major tournaments and certainly have the players to make a huge impact. Although Brazil are the favourites, my bet would go on Argentina
