I'm not sure where to put this but is there any interest in doing a write up for each group of the World Cup like we have done in the past for each WC and Euro? It'll be a lot of work but if everyone pitches in it won't be too bad.

Yeah, if we get quorum, count me in.

Depends on when you want to do them. I'm off now but May is a busy month for me at work but it looks like it will die down right before the WC

We could start them whenever. I'm much busier than I've been in the past for these so at the maximum I could do a group or maybe two groups. We would need six or so to make it easiest on everyone, sounds like we have three so far.

Put me down for Group C for now. If I can't finish it I'll let you know

I don't really feel like I know enough about Internationals but at the same time I'd be happy to put in some research and "try" do to do one..

Group F looks like one that could be interesting to do. Would be nice to see a good format to use I'll check some of the older threads because I remember these being done prior to the last WC.

Yeah I just planned on using the same format as the prior ones but people can obviously and their own style or do it their own way. I will probably have to research a bit as well and the write ups aren't terribly in depth, usually just a couple key players, the manager and stuff like that.

If you would like to give it a shot that would be awesome, people could split a group if they would feel more comfortable doing that.

Kim Kallstrom "key player' klaxon!

I can do this Lee.. if you want to put me down for Group F (Argentina/Bosnia/Iran/Nigeria).. there's enough star power in that to make it interesting as well as a dark horse in Bosnia & Hersegovina.

I'll take Group H if no one minds. Need to remind people how underrated Belgium are. I mean I can't stress enough how little hype this team gets in comparison with their achievements. Has the press ever mentioned how good this team is?
