View Full Version : World Cup has filled me with hope

So many "minnows" (Algeria, Switzerland, USA, Mexico, Chile) have performed with bravery and managed to hold the best in the World, reinforcing that it is 11 v 11 at the end of the day.

We will not have the Big Names come August but we have spirit and Sean Dyche. What else would you want? :D

Totally agree. Shame, though that none of those made it to the quarters.
I'm counting down the days to the start of the season - can't wait.

Agree totally PNW though I'm not convinced that Mexico would be classed as minnows but I get your point.The reason Mexico are ranked so high is down to the very high number of games they play in a year.

Have to say that I've enjoyed this World Cup, so far, much more than I thought I would.

It's been very handy to pass the time until our season. England's (non) involvement hasn't affected my enthusiasm at all.

Agree with the OP, you couldn't help but see similarities with the USA and a couple of other sides and how we hope to 'level the playing field' this season.
