UPDATE: Finally sent out details. If you are a manager listed here and you haven’t got them then a) check your spam folder and b) shout at me cos I probably got your email wrong…

UPDATE 2: Unfortunately, Italy manager Tom Schaller has had to pull out (thanks for letting me know so promptly!) so I’m delighted to welcome 2010 finalist manager Andrew Hickey back to the PWC, and I’m sure Italy’s fans are delighted too.

    Didn’t see the original post about this — I’d be very interested in taking part again if someone drops out.

    The draw is in two weeks’ time by the way.

    As defending champion and manager of the host nation I am excited for all the madness.

    I always like the Pop World Cup – if there are any spares (after the people upthread, obviously) I’d love to take part.

    Speculation at this point would be invidious, but Groups A, F and G look particularly tasty to me. Good luck all managers!

    Matt DC on 9 Dec 2013 #

    Group G looks like the real Group of Death to me, three of the perennial favourites in there, but A looks pretty tricky as well.
