    Nooo, our house is a footy-free zone. Neither of us are fans of sport. :eek: ;)

    We were out with friends last night so didn't watch the match. According to another of Ian's friends I'm a bad luck charm - so maybe England won because I wasn't watching :lol:

    I've watch most of the games, not just England. I actually watched the Tunisia game on my phone in the hospital.

    I picked a decent couple of weeks to take for paternity leave. :D

    I wondered what all that racket in the adjoining streets was yesterday evening. Then some Neanderthal shouted 'Ing-ger-lund' really loud so I sussed it and checked the news.

    Well done those chaps :)

    Blimey no wonder the weather is all over the place. The cosmic aftershock of England winning at penalties must have been immense :drool:

    An if they make the semifinal who knows what will happen :lol:

    Yep me too, got a few friends round, plus some beer.

    It's on BBC too so I can watch it in 4K HDR on iPlayer. Only downside is it's about 2 mins behind, but it's worth it as the picture quality is fantastic.

    So England won, quite sad to see how some of the England supporters are acting. Smashing up bus stops in Nottingham, smashing up cars, hurling objects at police and then going in to an Ikea store and smashing the shop up. Oh the oh so proud English. ( Not )

    Such a shame that a few people ruin it for the rest :( I'm certainly glad I was watching it at home, Ian was out in Manchester and said it was mental!

    So next matches are France v Belgium on Tuesday and England v Croatia on Wednesday... Looking forward to it! :D
