It's that time again. Only 32 days until Brazil play Croatia in the opening match. Looking forward to a summer of great football!

Rumours circulating that Cashley Cole won't be in the England squad.

Confirmed: https://twitter.com/TheRealAC3

Reports are that he refused to be on the reserve list. Presumably he nearly swerved off the road when Hodgson made that offer. There are rumours that Liverpool might try to get him on a free transfer. While we certainly need to improve our defence, I don't want Cole. Never been a fan of him, and established England players don't tend to do well when they move to Liverpool.

I'll be down in England on the weekend of the Quarter Finals as I will be at the British Grand Prix, think I will be staying in my hotel room as I don't want to be out and about when England get knocked out. :P

It's fine, we'll be long gone by then.

You'll be fine to walk about as England will already be home, they won't get out of the group. They will lose to Italy, lose to Uruaguay & draw with Costa Rica. Hodgson will pick a squad on who they play for & not players that are or have played well.

A Glaswegian afraid of a few rowdy Englishmen? Surely not! :P

Hope the best for Portugal, although we have a tough group with Germany, US and Ghana. We never know how they do, and I'm afraid our manager chooses guys for their football's value and not for their agent or club or stardom status.

Brazil's going through some hard times with all the protests, FIFA are afraid of problems, but they should have thought about it years ago, and I'll say it: FIFA will have tough times with Russia and Qatar.

Belgium have been developing their football, let's see how they do...
