That’s a big price but you could add a nought to that and I still wouldn’t be tempted.
You can get 5/1 on England not qualifying for the finals which might look a very big price come next week if things go wonky in Ukraine.
A break from Premier League action gives us a chance to look forward to Brazil 2014 and pick a possible winner.
I bet Gareth Barry had a cold shiver this week on hearing the news that Mesut Ozil is now an Arsenal player.
Watching Ozil go past Barry like he was wearing diving boots was an unpleasant memory from the last tournament.
And Ozil’s West Germany are among the favorites at 6s to win next year.
But their lack of an outstanding striker puts me off and I’ll look elsewhere.
Brazil are favourites but they look an ordinary side bar Neymar while Argentina always seem to find a way of imploding.
Class tells at the very highest level and I’m taking current World and European champions Spain to do it again at 11/2.
Spain and Barcelona have been rumbled a bit recently with opponents pressing them higher up the pitch and striking quickly at their defensive frailties.
But Spain boss Vicente del Bosque is a canny old bloke and will tweak the tactics in South America.
He won Euro 2012 without a striker, but i expect the 2014 side to play with a proper number nine and a more dynamic midfield.
Centre forward Fernando Llorente is now playing at Juventus alongside Carlos Tevez and I fully expect him to lead the Spanish line in 2014.
Spain’s natural passing game will be ideally suited to South American conditions and their recent humbling in the Confederations Cup will be the kick-up the backside the all-conquering squad needs.
Back on planet West Ham and we managed not to buy a back-up striker during the transfer window as cover for the injury prone Andy Carroll.
Now I’ve got faith in Big Sam, but filling the squad with wingers and no-one to cross too is a bit like buying an arsenal of guns but no bullets.
