World Cup – Tournament Preview
In the first special of the summer regular presenters Ed & Paul look forward to the World Cup in Brazil, where 32 teams are in action over 64 matches during June and July. In this mega-length pod the guys look at each of the eight groups, where 13 United players will be in action over the next month. Each of the teams is assessed on tactics, top players, major strengths and weaknesses, with winners predicted and likely outcomes forecast. This is the first of four planned editions during the World Cup – international football with Red tinted glasses!

2 hours and 39 minutes?!
Great news, this is going to be the best fucking world cup podcast available! (please excuse my language)
outstanding World Cup rant! Almost finished it in straight hours while working… excellent stuff!
Absolutely outstanding. Major props!!!
One question to anyone out there, re: Germany and Klose: the pod-cast made it sound like Klose would not be used much. What’s the likelihood of him adding to his WC tally? Is he mainly backup this year?
can’t wait for this!
Guess who is pretending to work but is actually listening to the podcast on Monday
Great! Was so much looking forward to this!
Dear thirteen people who have liked this. Thank you!!! xoxox 🙂
Just listened. Great stuff. Probably already been mentioned but Ed’s got it wrong about Spain’s record. They won Euros in ’64
Repeatedly mentioned! Although I’m not counting that. It was two games 🙂
Great stuff. My only thing was the mention that Bradley replaced Donovan in the squad? Bradley is the USA’s best player, so he was a lock for the squad. In terms of position, Donovan at this point in his career, was never going to have the legs to play the midfield like Bradley (who is great–by US standards–both in the attack and defensively). Donovan was only in the mix as a forward. He should have been in the squad as a forward to come off the bench though.
As a side note, while at the England-Honduras game on Saturday, I kept hearing Paul’s imitation of Moyes in my head shouting, “Danny! Danny Welbeck!” A bit disturbing, but otherwise was wonderful to have the chance to see a United player like Welbeck in person (seeing Rooney was just “meh”).
Hey – not sure we said Bradley replaced Donovan did we? More like calling him out as a decent player. All Paul’s fault anyway!
