I thought last nights semi final was a cracker.
Maybe Belgium were unlucky but it could have gone either way.
Iím not nervous about this evening. I donít really get nervous (even when Iím at a live game).
I believe (for the first time ever I think) in this England team and its manager so yrs, I think England will win.
Iíll stick my neck out 3-0!
Come on England.
PS - I stopped taking my antibiotics a week ago so itíll be beers whilst watching the game  :beers:

Hi Martin,

Glad you can have a few + beers.

With Belgium out, let's hope that there'll be NO free kebabs. I'll pay!!

Nerves are calming. Thinking more positive.

Cheers weave  :beers:

I donít usually watch football but I will be ringing my mates to cancel tonightís running session in the shed for a few reasons.
1 Itís absolutely roasting in the shed .
2 Due to the extreme heat I have an electrical problem with isolating gaps closing up ,due to me NOT useing I R Js .
3 My son is the teams chef so he is over there looking after their meals and we as a family sit and watch the match in case we see him in the background.
This year is the first time in my life that I have ever watched a football match all the way through.My family even recorded the last match for me as I was at the Conway show ,they also recorded the U K Formula one race at Silverstone which I will watch this afternoon .
I have even bought an England car flag to fly on the end of my shed .
Does any one have a Canadian car flag to go the other side as that would remind me of my once in a lifetime holiday abroad .P M me if you have one please.

A pub here in my town has recently installed a trailer selling supposedly Canadian hamburgers and has a million of them flying outside!

Anyway, C'mon poms!  :thumbsup: :beers:

Hi George,

I won't go the obvious route but think you should edit 'them' to 'flags'. Does paint an amusing picture  :D.

By the way, will most aussies support Croatia like the anti England (irish, welsh, scots) brigade? Just wondering.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Yes, Wollongong has a large Croatian contingent, but all is fine.  :beers:

I go for the underdog when I have no skin in the game. I suppose that means Croatia and it meant Belgium in the last match and look what good it did them. Take heart all you Lion Hearts as I usually root for the losing team so England is sure to win.

Actually, seeing a million Canadian hamburgers flying outside might be more of a spectacle :-X

Well, now that it's come to this...I'm rooting hard for whoever comes out of the England/Croatia match.

Both are interesting stories. Croatia would be interesting as massive underdogs with a fun style of play (and some insanely good-looking fans...is that wrong to say?) but England is just so stacked with talent. A lot of Tottenham fellas on their side, it's hard not to root for them.

Spend as little as possible on what you need so you can spend as much as possible on what you want.

Only a few* hours now and we'll all know who gets to play the French in the final.

* Somewhat off topic but my dear Gran used to teach me a few was 5 and several was 7 :-\
