World Cup anyone? ⚽


(Andre Borie) #1

I’m surprised there isn’t any football/soccer World Cup thread here yet, so I’ll do the honours!

Are you watching? Any favourite teams? Betting? :money_with_wings:

Let’s chat! Drinks and refreshments will be provided! :beer:

Love the World Cup
Watched the Egypt game earlier and fell asleep :zzz:
This Iran game is quite good.

Not supporting any team in particular as neither Ireland team are there but Spain might be a good choice to win it


(Andre Borie) #3

Watching the Iran/Morocco game now, and both teams seem strong, could very well end up in a draw IMO.

I’ve actually tried to bet on no goals in the first half, and thought I had it, but turns out I bet on the entire game ending up with no goals :joy: thankfully cashed out my money and still got 61p extra.

Think there’ll be goals in the second half. Neither side are a good enough quality to defend solidly for the full 90 minutes


(Andre Borie) #5

Agreed. Now I’m not sure on what to bet though - the “no goals in the first half” was a great opportunity but stupid me screwed it up big time. :sob:

Would love to see England get to the semi’s


(Andre Borie) #7

Would be interesting to see. Only been in England for 3 years and haven’t really paid attention to their performance in the previous World Cup so not sure how they fare. Are you optimistic about them? :smile:


(Simmy) #8

I like to describe myself as optimistic yes, but also realistic.

Individually England have a great squad who are great for their clubs in the Premier League, however when it comes to Internationals for some reason we never deliver

I don’t know if it’s the rugby :rugby_football: or the Scotland :black_flag:󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 in me but not planning on watching. Possibly a combination of the two :joy:

Would people be interested to make a little Monzo go to a pub to go watch a match?


(Andre Borie) #11

Why the pub? We could do that at the Monzo office, on the screen they use for the presentations during the events. :joy:

But yeah depends on how many people are up for it it could be nice.


(Andre Borie) #12

Well, in the end I won 13£ on this game - put 1£ bets on both outcomes at the last minute of the game, and one of them delivered! :money_mouth_face:


(Jorge) #13

It probably was, but not anymore. They fired the coach two days ago for announcing he just signed for Real Madrid before the cup lol


#14

Don’t think that will make much difference. The replacement was already heavily involved in the team so it’s not much of a change


(Jorge) #15

3 minutes in and we’re losing already lol :frowning:


#16

He tripped over an earthworm, wasn’t a penalty


(Jorge) #17

Goooool


#18

That was beautiful

I’m getting a heart attack
