Football World Cup Updated

Recommended Posts

Apparently when they land in Russia, the pilot is going to keep the engines running. That way they can have a nice quick get away for the flight home.

I was making a cup of coffee this morning and missed the 20 minutes or so on BBC about some team arriving in Russia.

Anyone know who they were ?

If you like jokes about World Cup, what about this one:

The spanish coach, Julen Lopetegui, has been fired by the spanish footbal Federation today......He signed as a coach with Real Madrid, and it seems both jobs are not compatible....

Nor are they - one's a football team, the other's a bunch of actors ...

Julen Lopetegui ( or insert name of your choice) went to the ball with Cinderella and at midnight he still hadn't turned into a coach.

I think it was Saudi Arabia for the first match after the opening ceremony...

Jacob Rees-Mogg wanders into one of the TV rooms at the Palace of Westminster and there's a match on TV. "Who's playing?" he asks.

 

"Austria - Hungary," says someone.

 

"Really?" says Jacob. "Against whom?"

I have to admit that my mocking assumption that England wouldn't get far in the tournament was unfair and I wrong to do so.

Good luck on Wednesday.

Its a real shame England aren't in the World Cup Final, I have made so many new friends recently driving around with my England flags fluttering from the car. Lots of Scottish people locally have taken the time to wave at me, mostly one finger at a time but it's the thought that counts  ;)

 

cheers Pat

A great pity England didn't go all the way.  The inspiration for kids all over the UK was great and hopefully all the UK football associations will benefit long term by more kids being inspired to go outside and kick a ball about instead of sitting inside in their bedrooms and playing with computer games or making models.  OK the very last bit is twaddle, models are OK but get some footie in kids.

Having coached football with primary school kids for over 10 years, I couldn't agree more:partytime:

Pat, so that's you driving around God's Own country.  Can you do me a favour and go a little slower?  My eyes and coordination are not so good and my deflection aim on my egg throwing is a bit off with advancing years. 😁😜

 

And what's this Footballs coming home nonsense.  Everyone knows the Scots invented footie and golf. 😂

 

Seriously though well done you English chappies.
