It won't take Real long to replace him. Rumor was they were courting Neymar a few months ago. Latest also adds M'Bappe and Hazzard to the mix.

This is going to be a fun transfer window.

QF's:
Uruguay-France (France)
Brazil-Belgium (Belgium, please for the love of humanity)

France - Belgium (France) Should be a great game
Croatia - England (Croatia) It's not coming home... :)


I'm going with Belgium and, against my better intuition, England. Depending on how Subicic and the team recovers I could switch to Croatia.

Belgium wins it all.


Okay for the third and final time I'm flipping to Croatia. Kovac is Croatian and Bayern are rumored to be going after Rebic and Rakitic. In my world, that's reason enough to pick them.

where can I find out of Bayern has a home game between sept 26 and 29 ?


Move your trip up a couple of days. Bayern play Augsburg in the Bavarian Derby on the 25th at the Allianz Arena. Good luck finding tickets.:)

Bayern's coach is Croatian. Mandukic used to play for Bayern. It's Croatian karma baby.:) ;)

Good game today. Happy for the Croats. As much as I would like to see them beat France, I doubt it will happen. The French get an extra day to recover and Croatia has had to go to ET in 3 straight games. Their tank is on fumes.

Had a great time at the game, wished it were a little more exciting but the atmosphere is quite unique being in a stadium with fans from around the world repping their countries.

Would post more pictures but not sure the pregnant wife would appreciate it. She was a real trooper lol.
