    I've got a feeling the World Cup spoiler thread will be quite a big one, so who's got any ideas of what to put in it, links, fixtures etc.

    There's a sweepstake spreadsheet for those interested curtesy of Gooner14 & kaiowas;)

    Obviously not very good hacking 'cos it doesn't actually work ;)

    I've got a fixed version here but I can't upload it from work.

    Would it not be better having a thread for each game?

    Bah, I'm a hacker not a programmer;)

    Exactly what I mean.
    The England game the other night has reached 11 pages spanning 3 days and that was only a friendly!

    It would mean other interesting games would remain clutter free without anyone just posting a sad smilie , a load of *******'s , someone who watches football once every 4 years asking if Joe and Ashley Cole are brothers or something equally tedious.

    Thanks & sorted:)
    That might be a better way of doing it, could just have spoilers for each England game, then a separate one for all the other games. Some goon is going to cross post though that way & could upset someone avoiding results :dunno:

    But are they brothers? Could it be football's greatest ever secret?

    How about one thread per group for the group stages? Or if the powers that be are interested maybe a world cup subforum with a thread per match.

    Both those sound good to me too:) although I'd be surprised if we could get the sub forum thing approved...

    1 for each group
    1 for the 2nd round
    1 for each round afterwards

    Unless we don't make to the 2nd round then sod it anways;)

    A sub forum would be awesome, as I'm sure a lot of members will be watching every game pretty much. Also then you could have other World Cup threads to talk about other incidents - should we introduce another linesman, goal line sensors, injuries, mascot discussion etc ;)

    i vote for a subforum, i think if we have once huge thread of about 50 pages i may post in it once as it will be so hard to keep up with the discussion

    I thought what we did in Euro04 worked out pretty well? I think group stages thread for England to keep all the louts :p then a separate one for other groups might work.

    After that and if England get through a dedicated one for each knockout stage...

    We were thinking along Johnny's lines and won't go with a sub forum, so the first threads will be created before the competition kicks off.

    Anyone with any better ideas, feel free to post away.
