    Ahh, Happy Times for the next 4 years. Midas MulliganMidas Mulligan wait till my next prognostication. You're going to love it. Just waiting a bit more on the summer transfer window to settle down a bit. Watch for it under a new thread. ;)

    Wow . I hope it's as ballsy as predicting France.

    Because any actual prognostications you make are for shit. We've got pages that prove that.

    ETA:
    Shoot over Gabi Jesus’s stats when you get a chance, hombre.

    Of course, I can’t wait to be awed by your next one. I’m sure it will wreck my world view and cause an existential crisis. Particularly with your unimpeachable track record.

    ;)

    It might have been dubious for them to host it, but this was the most surprising & entertaining World Cup on record. Well done Russia.

    You have to wonder how things might have unfolded if the penalty decision had gone the other way (which it easily could have). Half ends 1-1; Croatia don't feel the need to push their fullbacks up to start the second half - leaving themselves exposed to French counter attacks.

    France basically built a 2-1 lead on luck while being outplayed, but to their credit they were much the better team in the second half.

    NYCFC was paid $451k in connection with the World Cup. Fourth highest in MLS behind San Jose, Seattle and the Galaxy.

    whaaaaaaaaaaaaat, there is a direct financial incentive to having WC roster guys? I thought is was just a marketing thing. What are we getting paid for, lost salary time or is it an actual bonus?

    So, is this GAM? TAM? But money to cover salary when they were away?
