    Russia vs Saudi

    Russia vs Saudi

    Kick off 15.00 Russia time, two countries powered by Oil and Gas, both the lowest FIFA ranks, what are your perdictions, mine a bore score draw or a last minute goal....a bit like watching Villa vs Tranmere

    He atually sang Angels at my brothers wedding, it was a bit of a strange one as he was playing Cardiff Arena, came back to the hotel and came for a beer, asked what was happening myself and the other bridegroom said it was two wedding, had a laugh and joke with him, bout him a beer and he went on stage...all in all a good guy

    FWIW Robbie Williams has not really done anything of note in the last 10 years

    Ha, yes he failed to capture America. His last song was, Party like a Russian no less.

    I think in the group stages many teams will be frightened to lose....but that is what football generally is no...so all in all pretty dull until the knockout stages.

    Yeah, the weak teams, some can afford to lose their first game, take Group B, Spain loses to Portugal, then all they have to do is beat Morocco and Iran, which is very doable.

    In Russia's group, Uruguay favourites, Egypt next, cos of Salah,I can't see the Russian defence controlling him if he's 100% ,plus Russia being home, the pressure could get to them.

    Wow, that didn't take long. Robbie Williams is now getting attacked in the UK for singing at the opening of the World Cup.

    Would you prefer Ed Sheeran or Justin Bieber.....Robbie for sure will put on a good show, he recently played at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum for Russia's richest man, they probably asked him when he was in town last month.

    Just crossed my mind, after seeing many fans in Moscow, very colorful south American fans, especially Mexico and Peru fans out in force, if Russia was visa free all the time, this scene of many foreigners in the summer would be common sight, something for the authorities to think over.
