How good are they really? WORLD CUP

Not going all the way back to the start, obviously. Arbitrarily going to start with our brave, brave boys (for the time being this is for men’s FIFA World cups, more can be added later).

Are we judging tournament or mascot here?

I would also like to know this

Votes are for mascot

Tournament!

(the mascot can form part of your judgment but I’m after a holistic rating)

Thank you

I’ll do the results in reverse order at some point, like how they used to do the top 40

Let’s open proceedings properly

Oh yeah, I remember that

Most are 4/5, apart from SA 2010 which I’ve given a 3/5.

SA 2010 was no more than a 1/5 and even that is generous

lose a point for the vuvuzelas, maybe gain one for ‘a goal for all africa’, lose another couple for the largely bad tournament, gain one back for England getting done for pace by Miroslav Klose

Yeah, but it holds good memories for me and where and with who I was watching. Plus weeks of international football…

Forgot how “crap taxidermy” Germany 06’s mascot was

Yup. 2010 was a couple of months after moving into a houseshare with Da Boiz and we had a bloody lovely time watching it
