    As it lies ahead of us chronologically, looking forward to it is arguably the only way to look at it.

    Strange question.

      I don't particularly enjoy watching football unless Brighton or England are playing... in fact I won't watch a game once England are out. That doesn't stop me from being overly excited by the World Cup though... it's the pinnacle of football in my opinion, and I'm making plans for the matches already. It helps I'm on gardening leave until the end of July

      Yeah wish I hadn't shown my 7 year old that Bergkamp goal, as he loves doing the mental dutch commentary that goes with it, basically repeating his name over and over again.

      Goes in high up on the list of non England goals celebrated. Others - Letchkov v Germany in 94 for Bulgaria, Suker for Croatia v Germany good examples.
      A theme there, I remember it well. Germany going out to lower rated teams, and infighting in their camp (Effenberg).

      Made those WC's, with the Argentina losses, happier for many.

      Love everything about major tournos - the pinnacle of football, not this champions league crap. I don’t expect us to do much but will of course be supporting my country as always.
      Seeing kids in the school or in the parks with Albion shirts instead of the big clubs and easy ones, that’s it. We have done it.

      I am still excited but I swear I get less excited with every passing world cup.

      The fact that this one is in Russia and the England squad is shit is doing nothing to get my pulses racing.

      I look forward to the games though, the fact they'll be on telly in work time, and watching some class teams show us how the game is played. I'll also watch the shittest, least attractive games in the competition. Then again, I'll watch most sports so that isn't saying much.

      Calderon is the type of guy that if your daughter married, you would worry that she was not good enough for him.

      Yes. Love WC's.

      My favourite was Italia90, which got off to a dramatic start with Cameroon beating Argentina. 1998 wasn't bad either, including the Bergkamp goal that dumped .... Argentina.
      I was bumming around the Greek Islands for the whole of that summer, what with everything else, Italia 90 made it even better, watching the games on the TV in the bars with all the different nationalities.
      Quite a few England supporters went to the islands after the tournament as well.
      Best summer ever.

      After England’s victories over Egypt, Belgium and Cameroon, we drove into the centre of Brighton. Great weather here too. Literally 10,000’s of people celebrating, cars honking, a great atmosphere.

      That England squad included quality throughout, with some naturally gifted, instinctive players, all Geordies (Gazza, Waddle and Beardsley).

      Happy days.

      I'm sure once it starts I'll be interested but right now I'm looking forward to a break from football!

      Absolutely.
      I must include one of the most underestimated players to pull on an England shirt, David Platt.
      I also saw him play a few times for Arsenal.
      He always gave the impression he was doing nothing, as if he wasn't even there, and he ran like a woman who was late for a bus.
      But he was a superb footballer.
