Much opposition in Brazil and again only one home nation in the tournament... Do we go ahead with our traditional sweep anyway? June 12th will be here sooner than we think.

Yes, put me down as well. I think I did reasonably well one year - thanks, Germany!

I do feel kinda guilty about landing a finalist in each of the last two sweepstakes, but not guilty enough to stop me entering. I'm hoping for Germany or Belgium this time. :twisted:

You'd like it better. After all, it'll be the only team that's representing your club. :twisted:

We're never going to get 32 people using this moribund forum so I thought we could use a Facebook Group Andy H and I set up. The intention is to eventually let that Group evolve into something like the old Storyville email list, but we could familiarise ourselves with its workings by using it for the world cup sweepstake.

I've invited most people on this thread but a couple of you aren't registered Facebook users. What can we do about that? Would you be happy to sign up, or do you think it's a dumb idea anyway?

So the World Cup starts on Thursday, and it's going to be frickin' ace. No question. But do you know what would make it even more exciting? Taking part in the traditional TTA Press World Cup sweepstake.

Find a new passion for supporting Ecuador. Enjoy Black Static columnist and Spanish football expert, Lynda E. Rucker's insightful post match analyses. Watch reviews editor Jim Steel struggle with the existential conflict of having to support England.

Fun, banter and cash prizes**. There are quite a few slots left, so if you're interested, let me know.

(**Each entry costs a fiver, collected and administered by me via paypal, with the owners of the first four placed teams receiving a staggered split of the proceeds)

Good to have you on board again this year, Ross and Des.

There are still PLENTY of places (32 teams to pick from!)
