Confusing to see Spain in pot 2, they haven't lost for as long as I can remember, how can they be 8 in the world? I'm sure someone will put me right.

Didn't they have a shitty world cup last time out? That's got to hamper your ranking

Can't actually believe I'm saying this but I really hope England do well in this WC. I like Southgate, he is at least being honest and for me making England look more interesting. He's trying to build a unit rather than fill it with the perennial underachievers like we saw in the past. Had Fat Sam been in charge I think I d have hated England, and quite frankly, like most of his teams, it would have been another boring, turgid WC for England. 1998 was the last time I wanted England to do well, that team was exciting and let down by sadly by the petulance of a certain person.

Your worst case scenario isn't possible - as can only be maximum of 2 European teams in a group.

I think it will be around May.

Last world cup, I was adamant that I wasn't going to do it as it would be a colossal waste of money.

My step brother (who was collecting) got me the book and a bunch of packs and forced my hand :?

I will be unashamedly be doing for the 2018 however :D

Hoping for a Carabao Cup type of draw for the first time FIFA show their faces for one of these things since all the corruption came out into the open and was then promptly swept under the proverbial carpet so they can just carry on as if nothing happened.

Live on Radio 5 from 3.20pm (GMT) and BBC-2 from 3pm (GMT) on 1st December. Supposedly it's meant to be all over in an hour or so....

Nailed on Russia in our group, opening tie of the tournament, and the stadium and surroundings will be trashed
