    No the supporters say we CAN win it everytime. Not we WILL. This season Joe Cole has pissed all over c. ronaldo. fact. Our defence is one of the best if not the best in the competition, as is our midfield- why can't we win it. Only Brazil have a better squad.
    Talking about who has the best squad is a little pointless since everyone will have their own opinion about which squad is better. When you live in England, theres more coverage of the English players and that leads alot of people into thinking they are the best or only the 2nd best to Brazil. We hear it so many times!

    Besides the game is not played on paper and i think recent results internationally and in europe show this. England may have a great midfield on paper but its the same midfield that got outplayed by Argentina, France and Portugal.

    Crouch to be top scorer of the tournament &/or top scorer and England to win
    Bet of the WC that, got him at 75/1 and hes down to 44/1 now.
    (Original post by justfarhan)
    Germany/England/Sweden/Argentina/Portugal/Italy to all win their first matches.
    Also a great bet, will be sticking money on that.

    Few more im looking at..
    Podolski top goalscorer- this lad is **** hot, watch him break on the scene this WC
    Henry top goalscorer- With Frances group, you cant go wrong with a bet on him. His odds are around 16/1 last time i looked(i think)
    Holland not to qualify from group stage
    Chelsea to 'score' the most out of every club- With Ballack,Shev,Drogba,Terry,Lampar d,Robben

    Depending on Rooney, I think United might 'score' the most with Rooney, Ronaldo, van Nistelrooy, et al.

    Apparantly you could get Luca Toni at 80/1 earlier in the season! I'd be happy with that.
    I've seen Cristiano Ronaldo at 65/1 for top scorer which i was very tempted by - he scores lots for Portugal (sadly less for united) and Portugal have got Iran in their group who are surely ripe for a pounding. What do you reckon to my bet of Messi for player of the tournament at 20/1? I think its got a pretty good chance. Keept the tips coming, i could be persuaded to part with another tenner.

    Crouch to be top scorer is not 'bet of the WC'. No chance especially considering he is very unlikely to play all our matches

    Podolski is not a bad shout but I dont think Germany will go far enough

    Henry not a bad bet. Never been at his best for France though and France have been poor lately

    Not sure Holland will qualify either

    Chelsea to score most goals must be a good bet, what are the odds?

    So i pleased you on 4/5 of my tips..Im finally doing something right
    I think, if crouch can get himself a few during the group stages when he will definetly be starting he is definetly in for a shout. He is excellent coming of the bench to, and could grab some from the bench.
    Henry does tend to shy for France, but they have Togo,Switzerland and someone else. If he cant score a bucketful there..
    Im not sure about Chelsea odds as i havent checked.

    And the fact that they still cling on to to the '66 victory (the 'Two World Wars and One World Cup' thing) is ridiculous. England euphoria is driven by this national pride that clings to the past.
    Two world wars and one World Cup!

    Roeder's already managed many top clubs anyway, its different. Southgate has no experience, and they should have known that it would cause a saga.

    I'm looking at England to win + owen top scorer @ 40/1 or England to win + Crouch top scorer @ 100/1!
    Might have to go for one of those.

    I've never ever put money on my own club or country, because if they don't win then you lose your money and its a double blow. Like I put a bet on France to beat England in Euro 2004, and although it hurt like a stake through the heart when they beat us, my bank balance was nicely increased lol.

    managed 'many' top [league] clubs, which are these then? So besides from managing West Ham, we have whom?

    As for experience, don't go insulting Southgate. He's played for a good number of clubs, at varying levels, he's been an England International, he's an intelligent bloke...harboured management ambitions for some time now, he'll have schooled himself in what is necessary for successful management, he'll have been helped along the way [particularly in the last 2-3 seasons] by club and country experiences. So, on this particular basis/argument of a lacking of experience, i think you're woefully judging the situation at hand. Admittedly, Roeder has had quite a wealth of experience, i.e academy work, some smaller clubs prior to West Ham if i recollect correctly, but saying Southgate as having no experience, not only stupidly absolutist but significantly, wholly incorrect.

    lol, yeah i've already covered that angle by betting on Argentina to win! I'll never forget feeling crushed in 98 but if they won i'd pocket £90.

    I want England to win it by playing excellent football. I want a fantastic world cup that I can sit down on a sunny evening and watch from the edge of my seat.

    The last world cup was great - I liked the morning games, but I live about a minute away from a pub so I may need to pull on an england shirt and join the fun this time. It gets almost everybody in a great mood and pulls people together (apart from the odd racist ******s) so just sit back and enjoy it.

    I won £81 during Euro 2004 after backing Baros to win the Golden Boot. I rarely bet, so I consider that a decent amount

    I've put a couple of quid on Jared Borgetti to win the Golden Boot this time around at 50/1. He scored 14 goals in qualifying, Mexico play very attacking football and they're up against Angola, Iran and Portugal. It could happen...
