    England Semi

    An English work friend of mine has 2 tickets for the semi final on Wednesday when England play Croatia. He paid 300 each including flights but he didn't realise when he bought them months ago that it was going to be the same day as his wedding! If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place.


    It's at Croydon Registry Office, at 4pm. The bride's name is Nicola -- she's 5'4", about 8 stone, quite pretty, and is a really good cook. PM me for more details.

    Exactly. Once you've seen one wedding, you've seen them all IMHO.

    If I ever got a semi watching England play I would sincerely hope that the wife would take me into the back garden and shoot me......

    Hopefully she'd have the common courtesy to take care of your semi first and then shoot you

    It's becoming a bit nauseating, the media (BBC are the worst for this) constantly referring to England as "The Three Lions" - when did this become a thing?

    Also noticed a fair few stories about English fans rampaging around their own towns after England wins - it's reassuring to see some things never change. I hope they lose to Croatia, but it doesn't matter, as they would get horses in the final by either France or Belgium anyway.

    To be fair, other English people are crowd funding to pay for the damage as they are embarrassed by the behaviour.

    And, yes, they might get "horses". Apparently horse meat is a delicacy around those parts. 😋

    England semi? You would think they were excited enough to get a full blown one.

    The line is in the song, but the England team have never been referred to as "The Three Lions" prior to this tournament.

    I might be accused of being a bitter twisted Scot but a combnation of a relatively easy group,and the luck of the draw has landed them in the semi finals.

    My opinion is that the first half decent team they meet will put them away.

    Step forward Croatia.

    All this Waistcoat Wednesday , cancel Wimbledon, close the stores early nonsense will evaporate and Mr Southgate will be rounded on by a public which has been whipped into a false sense of expectancy and triumphalism.

    Feels better to have got that off my chest!

    You're assuming the crowd funders are English - I reckon they are ex-pat Japanese, given their behaviour at the World Cup!

    I really hope so. I just feel something in my waters that they are going to do it and it feels like watching a slow car crash.

    Luckily I escaped to Crete on Friday. It was already unbearable living down in England prior to the quarter so god knows what it's like now.

    That's beyond my techie skills.

    If they have been referred to in the past as The Three Lions, I've missed it - possibly because they always get papped out the cup long before now, so it doesn't get over used :-)

    Don't worry. They'll get to the final but end up humped by France or Belgium. No need for penalties. Enjoy your holiday.

    Good point re the Japanese, who must be the best fans I have ever seen. 😁

    Really Really Unbearable. Trust me.
