Where’s the fucking live feed? Clearly a fix. I wouldn’t be surprised if the money for the kiddies goes missing as well. It’s like Arthur and the Christmas club money all over again.


Japan? You fucking twat. I want a refund.

At least I get to support Yoshi.



Sod the sick little kiddies, I demand my money back

I smell a fix.

Yeah, 'cause I was desperate to get Morocco.

Could be worse, you could have bought two tickets to the ball, kissed a frog and got Suadi Arabia and South Korea (ranked 31st and 29th out of 32 teams).

That’s gotta hurt.


So I got the host nation, I hope they Put-in a good display.






Will do alright if they stay on the marching powder and Fifa use the same testing labs as the Russian athletes.

The comment in the office was that one of my golf stories was more entertaining than the jokes on that live feed.

Uruguay are in the World Cup?



Didn’t I say at the start that I could buy 31 of the 32 teams and still not win?

I got Costa Rica in the work one…

Mexico, could be worse. They make tasty food. Would have preferred Croatia so it fits in with my work sweepsteak (and I only have to remember one team)!!

I’ll swap you Serbia, it’s close to Croatia :croatia:

Thanks for the offer but I already have enough internal conflict in my life, don’t want to spark a boarder dispute to top it off! I’ll stick with the Burrito Boys!


You get to cheer on Tadic!

Or should it be


Yeah, that make it all better. Thanks*

*sarcasm btw


Put up a print out of the full thing then

Nope, I sat in a tent in Weymouth on a wet Thursday afternoon writing the code for sweepstake draw and Googling those jokes.

You’re all going to watch it for 24 hours* before I put up the whole list.

Fuck you and fuck you all.

*Well, maybe at least 2-4 hours.


:peru: & :poland:

Ranked 16 & 17

Shit, but not quite shit enough

Definitely won’t be watching
