    I’m in Sicily and will be watching it on a big screen by the pool.

    There is only one English couple here and lthe others are mostly German, French and Dutch.
    I am being given an Italian flag by the barman as I’m Scottish. My missus is English and she is even less interested in the result than me !

    Am I right in thinking you’re ambulance crew drac? Or is that someone else? If so good luck and stay safe!

    Yes I am. Ta. Hopefully everyone will just wander home safe and sound but I doubt it.

    On the sofa draped in the Flag! Just concerned about staying awake as it’s been a full day!

    Why is it called the beautiful game? Well despite the cheating, diving, play acting, dodgy refs, bent FIFA reps, it’s a game that genuinely has the most amazing moments of skill, emotion and pure theatre. No other game like it and that’s why it’s embraced by the world….rich or poor!

    As group whipping boys Costa Rica are showing us now…

    Still not sure if I’ll make it to the pub, was out on the bike from 10am -6pm today.. Little bit sunburnt and tired…

    my iphone started sending me England songs via “the cloud” this morning. I was trying to largely ignore this WC but now I’m sat on the sofa armed with beer and pringles.

    Could have done without the 5am starts this week though. Uruaguay Vs Costa Rica is turning into a good game

    Kick off is 11pm eh? Can you imagine sitting up that late watching England and one of their frightened-to-lose-so-play-cagey-boring-football-and-frustrate-every-England-supporter-watching-for-the-whole-damn-90-minutes perfomances? I think I’ll Sky+ and watch with my kid in the morning.

    what, the cricket match is still on

    Yup. I believe they scheduled it at that time just to annoy you, Dez.

    If it’s any consolation, the next two are at more reasonable times:

    The match was on at 1600. Not best pleased with the result really.

    Oh, and now I have to endure a month of people asking me about the soccer, assuming that I give a shit. Can we please have a separate forum for all the inevitable soccer threads?

    Watching at home in NI. Since we are unlikely to make another World Cup ever I wish England and the fans all the best.
    Really excited at the selection hope they go for it.

    I’m watching on holiday in South Wales and I’m really looking forward to it. The team looks good, really positive. I love top class sport in all its forms (cept golf obviously).
    Come on England!!

    I think if one has a nice local, out the way or has a strong contingent of non-****er locals, then it’s a great idea.

    You could try my local, in Stirling, cambuskenneth to be exact, same 6 guys every night regardless, rangers fans mostly so some england sympathies.
    I’d like to see a good game, and since there is a lower than ever in knob quotient in the squad, let’s have an England win.

    The trick is to start loads of enticingly titled threads which then swerve into football – i.e. “What artisanal shoe horn…?”
    “..did uncle Roy use to fit Rooney into that team? On the wing, he’ll only have a strop and wander off”

    Phil Neville ……..OMG!

    It’s neither Owen or Townsend though, thank christ. Phil’s so monotonous he’s a background drone I hardly notice – that’ll do for me

    I suppose the “soccer” (ooh, my sides!) haters feel the need to come onto a soccer (stop, it hurts!) thread and declare their dislike for soc(I can’t do it anymore!!) football is because it is such a massively popular sport. I don’t normally watch it anyway, but the World Wendyball Championships are always good entertainment and part of life ain’t they.

    Why is Baines the coolest player on the park, exactly?

    Neville is awful.

    If we are going for people keeping going when hurt you are going to struggle to beat Johnny.
