Facts or opinions

Facts or opinions?

  • Personally I love the World Cup ..... 5 weeks of car free roads and empty supermarkets while England are playing. Bliss.

  • I just can't see the point of an overpaid bunch of blokes kicking a ball around a field. Women's football doesn't get even the slightest amount of funding or TV coverage.

  • I wouldn't say I'm a die hard fan but I do love a good World Cup. Very disappointed with England. Enjoyed Slovenia/Algeria but nervous now that there is a leader in the group. Looking forward to Germany/Australia this evening.

Do you agree with these? Why or why not?
