It doesn't feel the same to be honest. Not really enthusiastic for it or really bothering to watch games.

Ive the matches in the tv on silent while working from home which is handy enough. Havent watched any of the 4th game of the day live though because Im footballed out at that stage and coincides with putting the kids to bed middway through.

How can anyone be missing this spectacle on purpose? Shaping up to be the best world Cup ever.

Watching a big part of it. It’s even on at the office! Coffee shops are all full with people watching too. Some boring matches, some good ones. Not bad so far

The matches I’ve managed to watch so far have been really entertaining (besides the opening match) and the sentiment from my friends on social media is that most of the matches that I’ve not managed to see have been pretty good as well.

The feeling of the World Cup is special, no other football competition feels the same. I've watched all the games till now and hoping to watch them all till the end.

Watching all the games and the timings of the matches make it perfect for us. Games at 2pm, 5pm, 8pm and 11pm are perfect. I only miss the 2pm matches due to work.

Still watching every game that I can and really enjoying it so far. The games, anyway. The media coverage and a number of the pundits, less so.

Really looking forward to being able to watch all 8 matches over the weekend. :drool:

Not watched a minute yet, find it hard to watch international football at the best of times so it's not bothering me.

I think I've already watched more group game minutes than I've ever before. Thank you WFH.

Watched a few bits of England USA, the first I've watched. There's little hype amongst my friends back home but here there is nothing, though most of the locals are still sulking about Italy not qualifying.

I've seen a few games thus far. Saudi Arabia and Canada are my two favorite surprises so far. Hoping Denmark get up to speed before it's too late

I haven’t been watching it, except bits of the England games. Doesn’t feel like a real World Cup if it’s not in the summer. I’m not even boycotting it because of Qatar, something just feels off about the whole thing.

Yeah I agree. It doesn't feel like a world cup.

Missed two if the games live (Eng v USA and the France game) but watched them back when I came home. Watched all the rest some have been rubbish but others been really interesting. Enjoyed it much more than I thought.

Have seen one half of England game yesterday in total this world cup. Doesn't feel like I am missing out on much.

The timings don't match. All games are early morning or during work hours.

The knockouts best be buzzing because the majority of the games have been poor.
