    1970 World Cup had the biggest impact on me because that was the first time i seen a colour TV those yellow shirts of Brazil were and still are pretty stunning.

    My first World Cup. I was 14/

    One thing I remember, Costa Rica played Brazil and that was the day I found a porn stash under my dad's bed. 16th June 1990. Always remember a black girl in the reader's wives bit and the saucy letters that I assumed to be true stories. Muller scored at 33 minutes, and I found the porn stash about 5 minutes after. Was a crap game, as they all were in that tournament, but it is my favourite.

    This is why when people of my age hear people talk about Maradona or Messi as the greatest, we give a rueful little smile, and think aye, ok then

    That's a fairly patronising attitude, seeing as people decades younger than you have seen just as much of Pele playing as you have :hehe:

    To be honest I think one of the best world cups for actual football was the last one or even the one before. (In my life time)

    1986 good cos of Maradona and the Brazil vs France quarter final

    1990 poor - apart from Gazza and Baggio and Schillaci

    1994 poor - Escobar got shot

    1998 ok - Bergkamp goal

    2002 poor/ok - only good was fat Ronaldo and Keane fucking off home

    2006 decent - Italy vs Germany in Mill Lane switching sides when Italy were winning which angered the Germans in the bar

    2010 worst ever - fucking vuvuzelas

    2014 good

    2018 good

    The euros have normally been better entertainment than world cups.

    Obviously 2016 was amazing for us, but euro 2000 is the best quality tournament I've seen. Look it up if you've forgotten, so many amazing players and games.
