    As Britain's only team in Russia, how far will England go?

    Barely make it out of the group and then lose to Panama or Iceland.

    Ah well, some other team then. Basically I don't see them getting up to much at all.

    They'll have a tear-up with a minor provincial firm out in the sticks, but once they come up against Moscow's top boys their arsehole will drop out and they'll get proper turned over.

    It looks like a fairly easy route to the quarters because in our group Panama and Tunisia should be well beatable. Then in the second round we play one of Poland, Senegal, Japan or Colombia, none of whom are superpowers despite having the odd big name.

    I'm not claiming it'll be inspirational football but I think we'll get to the quarters and then get found out by the first top class team we meet.

    I agree. 2nd in the group behind Belgium(who might do well), then beat any of the 4 from the other group.

    I first heard that said in 1982 and before every tournament since. It's hard to argue the case for this one being anything different. The south American teams don't do well in europe, so England might soldier on until, like you said :(

    I'm having a wager we go further actually, semis for me; not a fan but I have a sneaky that the team could surprise a few people.

    Unlike previous years, so little is expected it's going to help them.

    I voted semi finals but reckon we'll probably win by beating Germany 6-5 in the final.

    I bet certain people are intently watching this thread, just waiting for the opportunity to start foaming at the mouth about arrogance.

    So, England will triumph due to their inherent superiority over everyone else.

    Quarters. Any further than that and I'll think we've done really well.

    I think they’ll win it, I really do. Finally got a manager who’s selects on form not reputation and a very talented young squad. Have faith people.

    Head says Quarters at most, heart reckons a few big teams might struggle, if we can avoid being one of them then a noble penalty shoot-out defeat to Germany beckons.

    My thoughts are a classic example of how being a footie fan and being irrational go hand in hand. I think England are a poor team and I have no expectation they will do well. However, because I think that I believe they might surprise everyone and do incredibly well. A sort of Schrodinger's trophy where we are simultaneously champions and also go out in the group stage. Please don't feel the need to explain what Schrodie really meant about his cat.
