Quoted from grimsby pete
My wife is half Danish so we have Denmark to follow as well as England,

My grandad was German coming to England when he was two,

That gives me another team to follow when England get knocked out,

I always want England to win whoever we play but apart from 66 always end up with Germany going further into the tournament than us.

Are you doing an England prediction game PP like your Town prediction thread ?


Jeez .... another opportunity for you.. ...if your Mrs has ever had a personal waxing Pete you could claim allegiance to Brazil as well

Really drunk off that the Dutch aren't there

I was in a bar in Amsterdam four years ago when they stuffed the Spaniards 5-1 - amazing evening

It will take England to win it to better that night

I normally watch the World Cup/Euros until England get knocked out and then take no interest in it at all.


So after the group games that's you usually finished.

It will be interesting to see what England can achieve, barring that South Africa and Brazil were just too much of a hot climate. Russia on the other hand should ease things a little in the European favour. Ignoring Germany of course.

I don't think that South Africa was actually hot for most of our games, was it? I seem to recall that the subs were sitting with blankets on them during the first game. We screwed the pooch there by training and living at altitude in the lead up to the first game, so the players were fecked by the time it came around to playing. Most teams just travelled there to acclimatise for a couple of days before but were based at lower altitude.

Don't disagree that the weather conditions ought to be better for us than in Brazil, however. First game could be pretty warm but the other group matches ought to be more UK-like.

I wonder if the lack of expectation of any success will actually help us a bit in this tournament? I just wish we had better defenders/central midfielders.

Quoted from Sweden


I remember that I was at Bruce Springsteen concert in Stockholm and he announced that Sweden had beat England with 2-1 and that he wanted to play Glory Days. I also remember two Englishmen in the supermarket who would buy beer. One of them says: Look her fellow this is first class, we take that.
Class 1 is the beer that has the lowest alcoholic strength in Sweden. I did not say anything.


Didn't realise you guys had that system too. You can't buy a neljanen (IV) in a normal shop in Finland. You have to go to the state run Alko shop. And if you're a pish head, if you've got to go in there anyway you may as well buy a bottle of vodka or a koskenkorva as it's easier to carry enough to get you pished

Sounds great. Plockton isn't that far from Applecross. Well worth a visit.


You on commission Les?

So if Russia attacked Turkey from behind would Greece help?
