    The fact that retailers are selling 4K tellys with the promotion of if England win the world cup you get your money back, rather makes me think there's more chance of the Liberals winning the next election outright

    33-1 if bookies are right. So sell TV whack on £150 and make this promise (which everyone will think is perfect) and your basically quids in.

    That's harsh. I would have put the liberals on a par with Scotland ever qualifying for another world cup
    Let us not forget EU open doors immigration benefits IT contractors more than anyone

    Scotland are 22nd in the world currently, England are 11th and will finish the world cup down from there, they probably won't get out the group.

    There are probably 40 players at the world cup that are better than England's best player, it is a very mediocre team.

    Interestingly, Scots say that every time, yet it hasn't happened for 56 years.

    Well I never said that last world cup.

    I also remember mitch saying pretty much the exact same thing to me when I predicted Australia were going to batter England in the winter ashes.

    Italy will beat England and Uruguay will probably win as well depending on injuries.

    I made about 4 grand betting in the last word cup. I'm going to start off with 200 quid and see how much I can take it up, ideally I would like a 4K TV.

    I think that seems quite probable. It's not an easy group and mid-level teams like Uruguay can very easily beat England on a good day.

    Are you going to put your mouth where your money is by telling us who/what you're betting on before the event? IIRC you talk about betting quite a lot unless I am mixing you up with someone else.

    Uruguay are above England in the world rankings at the moment, if Suarez is fit then it is goodbye England, that could be quite funny, he is already hated enough.

    I remember being fairly up front that I had 2 grand on Germany beating England.

    I shall offer my advice this time up upfront, last big bet was last year where I won 2 grand, I left 200 quid in the bet fair account and frittered it away on bad luck bets so I am not exactly in form at the moment.
