Thinking about some " louts" I've watched football with, Eric Morecambe, Ellton John and Henry Kissinger all come to mind as I've sat directly behind all them them whilst watchng and also the gentleman Graham Taylor.

Yes, I agree with Devcon here. (And remeber I'm no football fan!)

We have the thread "fed up" which is home to all those who don't like the World Cup and it a place to have a moan, a rant (within reason) about fooball, the World Cup, footballers, fans etc. etc.

This thread was started a place for those on the forum who do like football - yes I know, extrordinary isn't it! - it's their place so can we ask that we respect that and let them enjoy themselves in peace, they'll return to aeromodelling normality in due course don't worry.

BEB

PS Tom I have moved your post to the "Fed Up" thread where it fits in better.

Sad I know, but I've managed to watch almost every game so far. It is shaping up to be one of the best - which pains me to admit given who's hosting it!

I see some of the away fans got into our section, and the stewards removed them. wink

Statue of Mother Russia is impressive, never seen that before.

... humm, yes... the main question remains "How far will England go"?

... but then, what about our Red Devils?

... you know, we have a few of them visiting England nearly all year long.

... what about competing each other in the next 'episode'... devil

Cheers

Chris

England v Belgium Thursday 28th 7pm.

Belgium are one of the best teams out there, lot of them play for English clubs, hope we both go beyond the group stage and good luck to you.

Oh - could this be the end of a beautiful friendship? Or will Chris and John show the way in mutual respect and kindness!

My breath is baited,...

That's not as good Pat, far better to have it baited. If you can't afford baiting I could probably lend you some?

I love good football, Belgium lads play it, and Toby/Jan/Mousa play for Spurs. wink

No worries, BEB.

I started to 'like' John's 'ironic' humor since my first build blog here on the Forum. So, no way a few goals would make any difference to that.

Anyhow, 'jobs a good un'... being it England or the Devils.

Good luck to both of us, John.

But then, may I remember you that I'm leading you in the Fantasy GP ranking... devil ... that of course could be changing after the French GP results...  crying

Cheers

Chris

Funniest moment so far,,,

The failed forward somersault throw in by the Iranian in the dying moments.

Must say the Iranians had some real chances that nearly threw Spain..As well as some irritating behaviour..

Enjoyed Spain v Iran...Pepes antics in the Portugal game deserve a seat on the bus home, Morocco deserve more than nil points.

England play Sunday, forecast for flying is very good. dont know

Tom, with all due respect I'd suggest you move your post and rather unnecessary sweeping comments to the "fed up" thread.

I don't dispute there are some "thugs" that attach themselves to football but a bit of balanced perspective required methinks.

I've been going to football for the best part of 50 years and have only witnessed one incident in that time.

My dad was an Accident & Emergency Doctor all his working life and saved more lives than I'll ever know, he was a football man through and through. I don't recall him setting out on a Saturday with his fellow "louts" to injure members of the public, me neither thinking about it.

I'd love to be able to afford to be in Russia now, despite the doommongers predicting "fan wars" reports suggest a brilliant atmosphere and welcome by friendly, welcoming normal Russian people.

Enough said I hope.

Come on England

Nothing "sweeping" about it Dev, you're dad obviously was a normal following gent.

As for a balanced perspective? There are organised gangs that from whatever country or walk of life that use this "game" to promote and facilitate violence, no, it's not really about teams... more about country's and underlying religious immaturity.

You see my post as an attack on the good genuine fans? Why? Many are peaceful I'm not stupid.

But don't try to offload your ... you're or yooor ( grammar hey?) idealic family values to a post that i feel needed to be said.

Oh on that note, cheers BEB for moving my original post to the thread that those who deny the violence, but just want to brush a feather up a rhinos bits.

Oh, p.s.... did you see the video of a car who's occupants were just trying to drive down a Plymouth road? They had to try to gently push through a gang of drunken yobs! They were blocking the road, one jumped on the bonnet of the car, must have been very intimidating for those inside..... the driver cleared the group and braked to deposit the lout on the road and off of their vehicle, for what? Louts that use football as an excuse to disregard common sense.......

Sweeping enough for you?

Tom.

Take the hint and move on, I'm getting rather bored.

Go and write some letters to the council or something similar to take your mind off things.

Good luck

Life is too short

Great result for Croatia but I can't fathom out how VAR is working, how can the Argentinian player kick someone on the ground in full view and not be sent off.

Well done Croatia, Sunday seems a long way away...
