2018 World Cup in Russia

Post by BobHelm » May 21, 2018, 11:10 am

FIFA have kindly released a schedule that shows the matches & their timing according to the IP address you are using - so you need to note that it will NOT work especially helpfully if you are using a VPN.. :D

https://www.fifa.com/worldcup/matches/

Unfortunately it is not exactly artistically perfect if you are viewing from a Thai IP address as the 'HH:MM + 1 day' nomenclature does not work very well as it throws the second side onto a new line..

But at least they have tried!! :D

Ah, as we always used to say...

There was nothing wrong with the system, it is poor end user checking that is the issue... :D :D

Give me a pen & paper and I could time a train from London to Paris ...... give an IT EXPERT millions in hardware and salaries and it will still get there an hour before or after it actually does .......... and it seems that 30 years later they still cant tell the time [-X

That looks like it's been lifted from a guide for football managers. Less than 5 weeks now until Belgium gives England a football lesson. Well, maybe not.

All depends on whether"the little apple" (Hazard in Eden) has a bout of the sulks with the manager or not :lol:

I suppose some of you guys will spend over 30 hours watching World Cup games? Perhaps not if England exits too early.

A few years back I was in LOS just before a World Cup so decided it would be quite lucrative to get a load of replica England shirts to sell when I got back home.
Off I toddled to the pub with a full suitcase, ££££’s flashing in my eyes & proudly displayed my wares only for the first punter to point out the hologram & material “watermark” both said Endergland. Arse [-( ](*,)
May the bridges I burn light the path in front of me

I'd have bought one if the discount was enough. You ought to have another go this year.

If you get the spelling wrong again (d'oh), flog them off in Udon bars. The punters are less likely to notice.

Are you a football nut Nigglyb? 30 hours plus for you?

I’ll be watching the Endergland campaign but it’s likely to be considerably less than 30 hours of viewing.
Maybe we have a business opportunity here GT? Incorrectly spelt sportswear by GT/NG Enterprises

How about Bristols as the spelling for Brazil? The boys in Engergland might buy them as a laugh and the Soi Samphan crew wouldn't notice.

Your avatar colours already look Brazilian. Hopefully Brazil will win. Everyone loves a winner.

I'd be wary of misspelling Saudi Arabia or Iran. That might be a bit dangerous.

On the subject of c*ap sportswear ..........Are the new Nigeria shirts specially designed so that the opposition are throwing up instead of playing football? Should be "interesting" to see them in the game at Wemberlee tonight

Luke Warm world cup favourites Australia blast 4 passed the Czech keeper yesterday.
Not sure if the big boys in the tournament who think they will win the trophy care to much.
I think our odds just came in to about 1000/1
Go the socceroos.

Weird one that Barney, The Czechs had more possession, 12 shots to the Aussies 5, and 8 corners to the Aussies 1, yet still managed to lose 4 - 0 ( Klopp has already sent his scouts to look at the Czech keeper who looks an ideal replacement for Loris Karius)

Bad news for England fans ....... Benteke has failed to make it into the Belgium world cup squad.

And even more surprising ... Leroy Sane gets cut from the Germany squad but Ilkay Gundogan will go to Russia :-k

Most baffling is that Ozil will go ahead of Sané. He's been slated for his lack of effort and knack of disappearing when the going gets tough at Arsenal but I suppose he'll look a world beater for Germany.

He knew he didn't HAVE to turn up for Wenger as he was still going to get his pay cheque at the end of the month. When he plays for Joachim Low he knows if he doesn't put in the effort he will not be an International player five minutes after the game finishes

It would be nice to see the Vikings from Iceland win a few, and with Leif the Lucky in goal and Eric the Red up front, they should accomplish that task with ease.

Don't mention Eric the Red ....... you know it will make certain Udon based posters have a heart attack and grab their shooters to protect themselves against the left wing revolution
