I predict this is the year of sport legends sealing their legacy. Alexander Ovechkin wins the NHL Stanley Cup, LeBron James gets swept in the NBA finals again, proving that he's the all time goodest (not greatest), and finally it's time for Lionel Messi to bring home the World Cup.

LeBron James with no regard for human life!

Hi Kevin!

No joke, Kevin Harlan (the person being quoted) could retire off that single comment. I can't tell you how many times I've heard it.

This meme goes from this "matryoshka" series:

Hi Kevin!

if anyone is interested in filling a bracket here is the one I used:

Just remember who ever you have as a runner up in group play, they are seeded against the winner of the opposing group in the knockout round.

It's not soccer, it's football. Real football.

Congrats to the three countries of North America for getting the 2026 World Cup. USA did a good hosting job in '94 even if most of America seemed oblivious to it. Pleased for Canada as I have some Canadian connections and I don't imagine Ireland or Holland will be hosting the WC any time soon.

I'm pretty confident in France's chances. I hope we get to the final at least, and winning it 20 years after 98 would be mega!

The things wouldn't be so bad if we had a normal head coach instead of that whiskered tyrant. Some players are quite good to make the result.
Meow meow meow
Sound sound sound

Good luck to all of your respective teams, peeps.

Our men's team is sitting home this year (and deserve to).
Uh... everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?

Netherlands not in there either. V disappointing (oh, and Ireland). Mind you, Morocco have five Dutch born players in their squad.
Nice easy 5-0 win for Russia just now. Wasn't it lucky that the host nation got a nice easy fixture for their first game?

Tiga! What are you suggesting? Outrageous!  :o

Funny to see Bosco dismissing England's chances of getting out of the group. I would suggest England 1st, Belgium 2nd. But would be amused if Bosco turned out to be right.
Looking at Pumisher's comments I'm inclined to largely agree with him. But there can always be upsets...

Bosco believes in our team more than I do    ;D

Spain vs Portugal draw was really entertaining. Ronaldo is a magician. I hope Portugal goes further than I have predicted just so we can see more.

France did not look good. Australia played them really well. And although I didn't watch the Peru/Denmark match, it sounds like this might be a really tough group to get out of.

Missed the Argentina/Iceland draw, too. Disappointed about the result, but I did predict that Argentina would have a hiccup in the group. Hopefully this is it. Messi....  :-[

Croatia vs Nigeria, not the strongest game by the Croatians but they got the job done and now lead their group and hope to take advantage and avoid a potential France matchup in the knockout stage.

Iceland's team spirit is incredible. Some of their players have day jobs!

Congrats Mexico, commiserations German forumites. Where was the defence?

So, how confident do you feel about Argentina now Bosco ?  ;D

It's not over yet...

I know, I know, but it is still funny :)

France is qualified but with two very weak games. I hope they will lift their game up a bit against Argentina or Iceland.
