Anton Toloui @SkyAnton

All done here at England’s first training session in Zelenogorsk. I think my favourite part was the Russian Police coming in to our technical booth to ask for the same goody bags handed to the dozens of children in attendance. You’re never too old or too serious for free swag.

Suspect that is a case of fast learning by Russian Police Officers after their Summer Hols in Thailand last year :lol:

& so, finally, the talking stops & the tournament begins... :D

I am going to display games & kick off times in British Summer Time & then readers can just add 6 hours to discover the Thai kick off time.
There are so many different sources for watching the live games but in the UK all games have been split between BBC & ITV, so I will show which as well.
Here are the first few days worth of games being played..

Unfortunately there are not enough EPL threads and Mr Statts has been kind enough to update news for those EPL tragic's.

But back to the real show which is about to start in Russkie land.
Looking forward to hopefully the first big upset on Saturday, Socceroos over the Frogs, you have to dream I suppose.
Have 1 day off here in Dubai because of the 4 day EID holiday. Thank you allah. And my seat booked at the sports bar downstairs from my apartment, just a 30 floor elevator ride away, then it's into the cheap promo beers during the tournament. Only Carlsberg though at 25 Dirim a pint, a 40% discount \:D/ . That's about 215 bht a pint, normally 360 bht. Cheap as chips.
I think a draw would be the best to hope for our Aussies, they are 12/1 to win. Not enough in my book. Forgot a zero.
Good luck to the all other countries, even those who did not make it and are on the sidelines.

Oh damn. We haven't finished the analysis of the previous season.

British summer time? I hope Giggle can handle that.

Then obviously you should restrict your literary 'gems' :-s :roll: to the current EPL thread!
I am sure the REAL WC fans will be hoping your post is not the prelude to you and your mob spoiling serious & interesting discussion of the WORLD CUP for us by now selfishly taking over and disrupting this thread . ](*,) ](*,) :fryingpan:

Is Peter Smeichel's (sp) son playing in goal for Denmark? If so, the Danes might have a chance to advance if he plays as well as his father.

Yes he is but the Danes lack a decent striker to make much of an impact imo.

Last night Russia 5 Saudi Arabia 0
The Ruskies were impressive but the Saudis played like theyd been exposed to a toxic nerve agent !
Just when I thought our chance had passed,you go and save the best for last.

The Iranian kids at school were thrilled that the Saudis were thrashed. They have me cheering for Iran to win their group.

Not nerve gas but 29 days of Ramadan fasting probably didn't help their cause.
Any way here in Dubai the Shawwal moon-sighting committee in the UAE had the telescope out last nightand found the moon so the Saudis and any Islamic footy players can now rip into a good lunch time buffet.
Eid Mubarak.

Go the socceroos.
