We'll have lot of fun in front of the TV to find out. However, I don't consider losing a World Cup semi a fuckup. It' a great success. Especially seeing which sides went out earlier, and in which style.

Neither is it an exit. I think we are in for an extremely cool match for 3rd on Saturday.

It'll be interesting to see Belgium and England playing in a match where they're not both too scared to win, that's for sure.

That's what I was thinking. But I remember how in 06 and 10 the schlandband gut up, said fuck, we're gonna get us a medal, and won against two strong teams (DDD's mitley crew and Mate slurpers).

If they both manage to stop moping and clutch a knife between the teeth, it'll be fun.

Remember how in 14, a bored and arrogant Oranje butchered a completely emptied-out zombie Brazil? Gruesome stuff.

Very amusing, and hadn't noticed this during the match. England try to cheat to equalise in the game against Croatia, but can't even score against no defenders. I love the way they're looking nervously about them, like the cheeky wee boys they are.

The world cup final for 'merkins (not a funny link, it's genuinely trying to describe it in a way NHL fans will unnerstaun).

I don't think it was due to the offside pass (which was a facepalm in itself). But there is a rule that all players have to be on their own half before play can resume. So mayvb they heard a whistle, thought it was the starting whistle and werw then called back

Indeed, not a valid kick off, but the sneakiness of the attemp and body language of the players is hugely amusing.

Well, had it succeeded, you'd have had to give them one up for cleverness, right? :-)

When it didn't work out it was back to keeo the uooer lip stiff, never complain, never explain.

Belgium 2 - 0 England

Waffle Bakers secure their best placing evah in a World Cup, and send an uninspired, listless Pinstripe Poofters home, albeit with their second-best World Cup placing evah.

Big one tomorrow. Your bets? I'm convebtional and have the Camenbert wankers up 1-0.

Yeah, it's something of a downer when the first two goals are giben for free. The dive by Griezmann was appaling, ans the own goal was helped along by a CW who started out in offside.

Great final nonetheless. Allons enfants...

We'll play the CWs in the newfangled Nations League in September, that's going to be a butchering
