I don’t think a World Cup thread should be started until after the Club season ends or at least a month until the first game kicks off.

A thread of this importance deserves special treatment and is of utmost priority and thus must be started by an Admin or Moderator. Just my 2¢.

Nah No discrimination. I just think that a thread of this magnitude deserves the undivided attention of all users and that is mostly possible when either the season is over or we got only a month left for the action to start.

As for USA not making it to the WC. We suck and deserved what we got for losing to Trinidad and Tobago. Unless Americans don’t start taking football seriously things will never change.

Bah! USA just didn't want to qualify on account of the Russian election meddling. Damn right!

No need to be an admin to start a topic. I did revise the title to conform to the official tournament's name. Hope you don't mind.

IMO the following three teams are the joint top favourites to win the WC this year.

In alphabetical order: Brasil, Deutschland and España.

Argentina are heavily reliant on Messi and it looks like the superstars on that team have no chemistry with each other. France are a very talented team but have a poor manager.

Belgium have the same problem as Argentina (no chemistry amongst superstars) and are possibly the NT version of PSG. Great on paper but not so great on the field against quality opponents. Portugal and Uruguay can be dark horses because they can win ugly and be hard to beat.

France do have a better squad than Brasil but Tite is a much better manager than Deschamps.

-----------Pogba--Kante----------
Dembele-------------------Lemar
-------Griezmann--Mbappe----

:o

Not like their defense is bad either with Umtiti, Laporte, Varane, Mendy etc. Or their bench with Martial, Coman, Rabiot, N'Zonzi etc

I’m not saying they don’t have the players. However, Deschamps is not a good manager. It is as simple as that. You had all the big name players at PSG but an inept manager in Emery. We all know how that ended!

France's squad over the past few years has always been full of top players starting for the best teams out there. However, they never really managed to play as a team and seem to lack winning mentality when it comes to the big games. The case was totally different when France dominated world football in the Zidane era.
