Brazil clear favorites now, followed by France, Uruguay and Belgium.

It's coming, football's coming... to Brazil.

I've said Brazil since the start and stand by that, even with El Divo turning them into a laughing stock. The rest of the team looks well-balanced, and I can't see them falling apart against any of the three remaining teams in their half.

Croatia are my new favourites to win the bottom half now that Spain have gone.

Can't even possibly give an objective opinion anymore with England still in it :D

 

 

Therefore the spherical object made from synthetic materials and adorned with the Adidas logo is currently undertaking a familiar trajectory towards a place called home.

I said France before the last 16, with Brazil as 2nd favourites and I see no reason to change that.

Eric Cantona should play a World Cup first before advising Neymar. :)

Still think a Brazil-England final with Brazil winning

my opinion isn't really going to change unless one of those two get knocked out. and even then, if it's England who go I'd still pick Brazil to win

Said Belgium before the tournament and sticking with it still. 

Belgium, England, Croatia and Uruguay will make up our final 4 I reckon.

For some reason I can't explain I just can't see Brazil winning it.

Voted Brazil, straight to the cup with timeless classic dull defensive performances. ;)

Don't think it's over though, I think it'll be very close between them and France (a potential Brazil-France semi-final, if it happens, will feel almost like the "real" final, the real decisive match IMO), and the margins are tight enough that even others could emerge. I also think Croatia/England have a better chance than Uruguay/Belgium because they only really need to get lucky in one match and that is the final. One of them will beat each other, once Russia/Sweden are gone (you'd think they'll be gone now in the quarters, but at this stage who knows really), so once one of them is in the final anything can happen.

For reasons too corrupt to mention, I think Russia will make the final. Not saying they'll win it, but a glorious defeat in the final would suit Mr Putin.

I really think England are going to do this. There’s one more cupset left in this tournament and it’s England beating Brazil or Belgium in the final.

Why can't England win it? We've come this far and have a favourable but far from easy draw in the quarters and potentially the semi, come through those and anything can happen!

I've got Uruguay, Belgium and Russia all to win their QFs in a treble. The stars are aligning, England are going to get the easiest passage to a World Cup in history.

England will be the Liverpool of this World Cup, they will reach the final, then face a Real Madrid (Brazil) and lose somewhat easily.

I use Leicester winning the Premier League as the analogy for this tournament. We can either be Leicester or Arsenal.

We could, against all odds win the thing by playing above our abilities and being helped massively by all the big boys failing. Or we could be Arsenal, and despite all the usual big boys having a poor tournament we could still manage to **** it away and be beaten to the punch by a Leicester.

Harder to compare with leagues but yes, Leicester and Arsenal make sense.

Maybe Greece 2004 too, although England are a lot better on paper than that Greek team.

Bad comparison. We didn’t lose easily. Maybe if Firmino started over Jesus you’d have been in a SF.

I sadly say France has proven to play a better football than any other teams playing QFs at the moment.

Followed by Croatia, Belgium and England.

So England will win this :D

Although I find all the arrogance and haughtiness among their fans thoroughly annoying, I am also starting to think that this is perhaps the tournament of England. Not that I am in any way impressed by their display so far, but everything just seems to go right for them. 

Wouldn't be surprised to see Russia win later tonight from Croatia and then completely collapse in the next match against England. A bit like Sweden today.

Martinez and Southgate in WC semis. :rolleyes:

It would certainly be better for entertainment level if Croatia eliminates Russia.

Second thread I've seen you post a similar sort of comment. What are you basing it upon? If you mean the threads on here and places like Twitter then I think you are missing the fact that the majority of people are just joking around. No-one really believes most of what is being said. It's just been a few jokey comments at the beginning that has snowballed into a big national one as the tournament has gone on.

That's indeed what everybody is saying (also outside these forums), it's just joking around, it's just banter. But there is definitely a sense of seriousness in it, otherwise people wouldn't be repeating the same joke over and over.

And I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with being arrogant, only stating that I personally feel it's quite annoying and due to all the haughtiness I wouldn't mind to see England being eliminated (not that that will happen of course since it's coming home, but hey ;)).

They're finally having the results to back it up, let them enjoy it. :)

We’re really not. People weren’t expecting to get anywhere near the final. Everyone is enjoying the fact that things have gone so well with the draw opening up as the big sides crashed out. If you had a serious conversation with anyone - I don’t think you’d find a single person outside of the deluded diehards who think England are the best team or are playing amazing football.

They are just happy that they are playing as a team and not surrounded by the usual crap that follows the team around competitions. No-one has really expected it to ‘come home’. I really think you are missing the ‘joke’ and fun people are having.

The videos for example are just people trying to outdo each other with an even more stupid / sillier one than the last.
