Thought about it, got some friends trying to go but the thought of traveling from the US to Russia to maybe get my head kicked in by a skinhead-Russian psychopath and watch England get embarrassed doesn't really appeal to me.

Would love to visit Russia, St Petes in particular but going when there's a slither of an excuse to give Englishmen a shoeing? Hahahahaha No.

See above.

F*** that! Ruskies scare me at the best of times so being grouped in with a crowd who they've been in training to beat up for the last few years makes the whole prospect less than appealing!

All of the above. Mainly Mike’s point, but Ben and Scamp make compelling arguments to watch it on the telly too.

I actually keep forgetting about the WC until they mention it on premier league games, kind of depressing really that I don't look forward to a tournament as I know England will just get embarrassed!

Gone are the days of excitement for the wall chart and panini sticker albums

I keep forgetting too until a commentator mentions so and so is here, the manager of "insert international team here", to observe some of the players for said country.
