Urgh, four years to go now. And it'll be in bastard Qatar.

No "real" tournament again until Euro 2024: you have this weird multi-country Euro 2020 that's going to feel more like the Champions League, and then the Qatar Winter abomination.

Maybe Qatar will surprise us like he Russians have

I've loved this World Cup. It's almost as if all the tinkering Fifa has been doing for years has come to fruition and players can play and cynical fouling all but eliminated.

Gutted. A nation of people who basically couldn't care less about football wins the World Cup again.

And the fucking twats sounding their horns have started already
How come you live out there Sam? Work or family?

Both. Don't get me wrong, I love France and French people (I made three of them myself).

But you know all those annoying people watching England down the pub and making like they know all about football all of a sudden? That's basically everyone in France, bar the few dozen people in the country who actually go to a football match occasionally or even watch it on the telly.

Their sport is egg-chasing.

That really annoys me too. Of all the big European nations France is the one which doesnít have a strong club football culture.

When I played Sunday league in Paris we had about 35 players and I reckon only5-10of them would attend a game in a season. I knew only 1-2 people who attended regularly. I donít think that playing at 8.30on a Saturday night helped though.

The French produce wonderful players but there is a much weaker devotion to a club from fans than in England, Germany, Italy....

What a great word "amortization" is!

It's significantly worse than 'amortisation'! #englishnotamerican!!!

Ads, did you forget about the £1 million bonus scumbag McCormack gets if we are promoted (that was the only consolation of not getting promoted)!

Yeah I've heard that about France before. Despite PSG become an elite club now due to wealth, Parisians aren't really that fussed about football then you have Monaco and their 5k gates and these are the two top clubs....

Marseille is a proper passionate place about football though although geography means North Africa is an influence on things.

Sorry to go OT again on this thread but did we get that 8m for Amavi in the end or did we sell off that fee sometime in the season like we did with Veretout and Westwood?

cheers Sam - I wasn't prying - just interested. I've only been to France a few times - Loire Valley mainly. I too love France and the people - I always take as I find and have experienced nothing but positive responses particularly when attempting to converse in schoolboy French !!!

I wonder if this was the last great World Cup? Qatar just isn't going to the same realistically, and then it goes to 48 nations which is going to lower the quality imo.
