World Cup

Morning all

Its a wet windy Wednesday on the Wirral so thoughti’d drop a topic on here and ask whether you are watching the World Cup…
Not a political post as i abhor everything FIFA and Qatar has done to be sblecto stage this. But like a lot of folk im ibto footbrll fnd wantvto watch the worlds best players and find ways of distracting myself.
On Friday 25th im 6 months post atroke - so early days but im largely staying positive and focussed on progressing to be the best version 2 i can be.

Ive soent hours reading the forum posts and find all of benefit in some way - so thank you all from the bottom of my heart

Cheers all

@TRFCANDY53 I have watched some of the matches and will no doubt watch some more. I’m trying to just enjoy the football & ignire the politics around it.

Glad you’re finding the forum useful. Good luck with your ongoing recovery. L

I am all for it. Football is a major thing for me. It is something that keeps my mind active and is readily available on different types of media. I can no longer go to live matches so at the moment the World Cup is keeping me very busy in my armchair.

Obviously I want England to win and I hope Wales do well. I also enjoy watching some of the emerging teams. The standard of the Asian and African teams is getting better as each world cup comes round. :soccer:


Yes i get all that too. Plus my fantasy football team keeps?my brain engaged and me interested.

Franxe and England most impressive so far!!! Im half Welsh so im hoping they do well too.


Who is your domestic team??

Accrington Stanley are my first team but I also follow the Lancashire clubs in the league, they are Burnley, Blackburn, Preston, Blackpool, Fleetwood and Morecambe. In my lifetime I have been on all those grounds except Morecambe.

Do you watch Tranmere or anyone else in your area?

Ooooo - I see Japan have just beaten Germany. I thought we would see a few surprises!


Feel free too use … not my joke

Yes, Andy-- You have the exact right attitude. You are in the early days, and will get better and better with each day. Most importantly, I like what you said about being the best version 2 you can be. That’s what I try to do-my best every day and to make each day as good and happy as I can for those around me and myself, too. My best to you. :slightly_smiling_face: :heart: Jeanne
