If Spain have a thread, why don't we?

We are so much better than them!

We're still in it!

Beginning of World Cup I placed a bet on the same team as past 8 years because they are a bit like us us.
A team that you just know are going to win it someday because they have the players capable of doing so.

I admit that I didn't really rate us or predict us to get very far. Because we never do.

Last night I realised that I'd made a mistake. We're actually quite good aren't we?!

Maybe I'm still in shock after the penalty shootout but think we can win this now.

(providing we don't meet Belgium in the final!)

The scribes on the Cheltenham forum are rightly proud that Cheltenham born Eric Dier has become the first player from town to captain England.

They are also chuffed that he was the first Englishman to score the winning penalty in a World Cup shoot-out.

And let it be said that they have my full backing in support of Eric Dier & England.

C'mon England.

Interesting to read that one of England's old adversaries Diego 'Hand of God' Maradona gave an interview and stated that Columbia should have won match by claiming Harry Kane dived in penalty area before he scored from spot. :o :shock:
I suspect it is a case of sour grapes after Argentine were knocked out and he looked for another South American team to support. [Brazil not being an option.]
Obviously his personal use of recreational drugs has impaired his judgement. And he still remains a cheating so-and-so who I will never forgive.

Gutted last night when my second team were beaten.

Distraught tonight.

Do I even care who wins it now?

No. I don't.

Going to watch the 3rd place playoff? It must be the most pointless football match on the planet.

They've done well, no doubting that.
May sound harsh, but naivety took over. They got away with trying to defend the 1-0 against Columbia, but didn't tonight.
Yoh have to go and win the game when you clearly can, not defend the lead.

Such an anticlimax.

I actually felt guilty for supporting/betting on Belgium from the beginning because we never perform or get anywhere so why should this time be any different?

We played well and reached semi's so I felt even worse.

Who would I support in the final?

The team who I've always loved and will win me some money or the team I love even more but will win me nothing but happiness.

What a dilemma!

Unbelievably both teams are gone so I no longer have to make the choice.

And it's amazing how suddenly you can lose interest in the whole thing.

Glory hunter's dilemma. Buy the French shirt, I can see it being the right choice.
