Any other football fans out there who want to jaw about the World Cup?

Only if England aren't the abject failures they normally are at big tournaments

Just watching the opening ceremony (Robbie Williams? Don't Russia have their own singers?). If I was a gambling man, my money would be on Germany again - who's your tip?

I made sure to listen to the Football Weekly previews earlier this week and I am sort of on the Barry Glendenning side of things - how will England find a new way to flop spectacularly?

I think Brazil are very good, and could show up in a final against Germany for sure.

The first half of this Russia/Saudi game has been pretty painful though.

I like Barry Glendenning, he co-hosts a radio program I listen to while cooking Sunday lunch. He's often introduced as "not as fat as he sounds" . I think he's right though, it's really not a question of whether England will make fools of themselves, but how.

3-0 to the Russians now, but I doubt this will be the best quality game we see this World Cup.

Well, two good goals near the end made it a bit better, but Saudi Arabia were truly awful.

That game was horrendous for the Saudis. Though the US broadcasters were not-so-subtly implying that the Russians were capital-E expected by Putin to show the world how great the motherland is. I am glad that their home fans got a dazzler, but I imagine it is downhill for them now.

England won it at home in 1966, for the first and only time; so, why not Russia at home in 2018.

If France can play as a team they should win.

Day two of the world cup...

What state will Spain be in after they sack their manager?

Is Ronaldo actually going to perform on this biggest of stages?

Is Super Mo really fit enough for this first match?

Can Morocco/Iran produce the worst match of the whole competition?

Is Suarez feeling peckish?

Well, Super Mo on the bench against Uruguay, so not fully fit you would have to assume.

He has. And as a Liverpool fan, I am thoroughly enjoying it. When he gets angry, he gets stupid, so a girl can dream.

Also, Cavani has been terribly poor as well. I expected better of him.

Annoyed at the score...

And the match wasn't that great... The best players on the pitch were centre backs

That was such an upsetting result for Egypt. Salah's face said it all. They just lost all composure there at the end.

I know NOTHING about Iran or Morocco, so I will be interested in how this next one goes. Little palate cleanser before the big boys play this afternoon.
