Worming Out Of This One: November Football Thread

A separate thread for the utter actual scum who are going to watch this World Cup will appear in due course.

Was typing this as the last thread was closed:

I actually think the opposite. Brazil won 2002 cos they got their conditioning right and were one of the few sides to do so after the early WC came immediately after a long and gruelling season, which was why (eg) Bielsa’s Argentina couldn’t replicate their level from qualifying.

Reckon it being mid-season, a lot of the best teams/players will be at their peak. Messi, Neymar, Mbappe, Kane… all should be on it.

Might just stick to the pre-season II games. Cant wait to get excited about martial banging a couple in against Cadiz!

Think the best footballer ever, playing at his peak, will have enough to drag his nation to glory, even if the rest of the Serbia squad isn’t particularly strong

Main good thing about the world cup is arsenal need a bit more strength in depth to do something good this season, so playing fewer games before the January transfer window and being able to spend time negotiating deals before it starts = it’s coming home

Awful feeling Trossard has 2 more ganes left at Brighton before Chelsea swoop in their continued effort to be a pale immitation of Brighton

Pretty sure Chelsea are going to overtake Palace as club rivals

Think I read that Wolves are going to Turkey to play Leicester for some reason.

Bournemouth used to come out to Power - Kanye West and have now started coming out to Seven Nation Army.

Favourite walkout music?

We have Fanfare for the Common Man at Boundary Park

Arsenal doing WWF themes is the only good walk out music.

Now lets never mention wrestling in the football thread again

Disagree, it’s all about the game and how you play it all about control and if you can take it for me on a Saturday not some random WWE nonsense

I love to love 'em
I love to kick 'em
I love to shove 'em
I love to stick 'em
Love to flaunt 'em
I love to watch 'em
I love to pick 'em
And I’m gonna kick 'em

'Cause I’m an Ass Man

So many asses, so little time
Only a tight one, can stop me on the dime
I’m a lover, of every kind
The best surprises always sneak up from behind

Fulham! Fulham! Fulham!

I think I’m cute.
I know I’m sexy.
I got the looks.
That drives the girls wild.
I got the moves.
That really move them.
I send chills.
Up and down their spine.
