The Telstar 18 is a homage to the the first ever Adidas World Cup ball from 1970, which was designed to stand out on black and white television.

Dani Alves out for six months. Felipe Luis isn’t guaranteed to make it either.

The Alves injury probably does Brazil a favour. I think they need someone a bit more defensive on the right side to counter Marcelo who is great attacking wise but can leave gaps exposed defensively.

Not much to say at the moment apart from that song's pretty gooseberry fool.
Looking forward to the tournament though.

I'm saving that for 2022. Nothing like a World Cup built on slavery. :datass:

Looking forward to it, though it's still a national scandal that the panini stickers are 80p per pack.

I'm ready for this. My Panini album is complete, I've got World in Motion on my Spotify playlists, and once Liverpool win the Champion's League the fun can begin.

Costco sell them in bulk packs that work out at about 50p each.
