Hm, going home early would probably mean that we had cocked up against Tunisia &/or Panama. I already half expect to lose against Belgium.
Probably slightly less shame going out to a big gun. Obviously not if it's a big score though!

Ol gawd blimey TOMoS, possibly Germans or Brazil in the quarters? Just great!
Our 3 group opponents all have the possibilty of playing in Welsh red so might give you someone to favour against us!

I fancy us to beat someone on penalties.

Well, we're due a penalties win.

I said it earlier in this thread and I still say it.

I fancy England to do much better this time around than the last tournament.

I think they can be the surprise packet in this world cup.

For me, we’ll lose a semi final.

You should have gone for the Final and Winners in that case , James . :wink:

Never mind , you got as far as Wales did in the Euros and that wasn't bad at all .
Gutting to go out in the Semis isn't it ?
