Your Favourite World Cup - Part 2
#1
There's a strong argument to be made for this being the best ever World Cup. But what was your favourite? This will be done in two parts. Top 10 across the two polls to go through. Part 1 here: https://londonroad.net/Forum/showthread.php?tid=15234

Poll to follow.

One rule: You actually had to be alive at the time and remember it.
#2
I just about remember Mario Kempes, so this one gets my vote!
#3
Wasn't alive for any of these. Born about a month after the 78 world cup.
#4
70 was amazing especially for a 10 year old.

To make it a worthy competitor in this poll just have a look at this goal.

Wow. Thanks Adi, I’d never seen that goal before Laughing
#6
1974 and the emergence of Cruyff doing unbelievable tricks in a classy Dutch side was phenomenal, but I'm grateful to have seen Pele in an all-conquering Brazil in 1970 so that gets my vote.
#7
Panda being a wally. Who'd have thought?
#8
Has to be 66 for me, but I can’t remember a lot about it. I do know that for early England matches you could have paid on the day, such was the apathy. That all changed as England progressed of course.
#9
Spain ‘82 for me. Combination of factors. N Ireland getting through group stages was major, but also at Uni in Leeds, exams finished and time to just enjoy it. Also possibly the best Brazil team since 1970 and since. Good times...

Also that French team. The names still roll off the tongue. That semi final v West Germany.
#10
Every World Cup seems to be the best one ever since the last one.
#11
Apart from South Africa. That one was shit.

Imagine how good that was to a 10 year old though
