Bucket of Vindaloo
 
So... we probably all watched it.

Our boys where alright (once I released we were playing in red, not white) and all over them for about 25mins. Then they seem to get tired and need their oranges. The midges must have been a pain.

Final result is all that matters anyway. This WC has had a lot of surprises so far.

Wasn't the worse game I've seen so far - (that was Iran vs Morocco) but as an exercise to get the first game nerves out of the way and to get an all important victory, it got the job done.

Vs panama seems a lot more straightforward now, and the kicking that they will get from Belgium should be irrelevant to qualifying out of the group.

I fell asleep during the first half and did not expect them to win ( POS)

I've banned Scouse from watching any matches until he gets over the flu. Too much yelling, coughing, spraying and snotting - couldn't even enjoy my Indian take-away (coincidentally, a vindaloo curry).

That was truly a terrible game although the goal was amazing - great header and keeper didn't have a chance, just the wrong net.

Tournament football is a lot different than the league . Naturally slower and pretty average in the group stages with teams just looking to get over the line as it's only a 3 game group . I thought England equipped themselves well to be honest as most teams will just sit deep and defend .

The next game could see a better showing as Panama need something from the game which plays into England's hands as they're better on the counter attack . The outcome of the Belgium game will have en effect on the route through in knockout so it's important you get in the right half of the draw.

Confidence is the key with young sides as once you're playing catch up its difficult . The big sides have tournament mentality and can recover .

More than happy to finish second if Germany do too.
Poland looking decidedly average, along with that entire group actually is a real positive.

2018 is already better than 2010 which was probably the worst one in history and maybe could be best for a few years once sides really start to push it .

I think we all readily forget that we've been to 3 semi finals in the history of the world cup. We aren't exactly prolific and the QFs is a great target and achievement.

I think that could be a corker of a game. Iran will just get battered but had some serious resilience in their opening game, I've

Easy to forget that teams have got to the world cup on the merit of qualifying, so by rights aren't totally shit. Not like the last Euro's when they just let everyone in.

Today must be the easiest gambling day yet, Portugal, Spain and Uruguay treble? Been some shocking results for punters so far.

It was good if you had Portugal to score a penalty at 12/1 against Spain like I did.

Definitely a good treble though, I'll have a slap on that I think sir. Just hate them not being run at the same time

I like the fact they're at different times, gives me plenty of opportunity to chase my losses and dig a deeper hole.

1.54/1 with B365
Worth a punt but bigger amount.

Going to repeat with some both to score / not score add ons

I got 2.2 yesterday, think everyone has had the same idea........ Fancy Morocco/Portugal BTTS, Ronaldo to score and a penalty

Also fancy The Biter and Cavani to score for Uruguay and taking them at -2.

I've done all three to win, no BTTS. 6/1.
Just done another, for giglges; Ronaldo to score anytime, portgual win, over 6 corners combined, portugal to win either half, portugal by 2 or more. 10/3. Free money.

Best story so far? Japanese supporters taking rubbish bags into the stadium and clearing their own areas after the match. Pity we can’t get them to educate others...

Agreed. Senegalese fans were doing the same too.

I cashed out right after that, my arsehole was twitching like a rabbits nose....... Worth forfeiting 10% of the win to be able to relax.

Ive done Denmark as a single at 2.0, then the French to win and Argentina/Croatia BTTS at 3.0.

I start today 57% up......

Lottery numbers please sir.

Today I've gone for some silly stuff to try and find value in the England game;
Kane score anytime, England win, over 4 corners for England, England to win either half and over 2 goals in the game. 13/8 and all very easily won.
Kane to score 3 or more 15/2
Trippier anytime (FK i reckon) 9/1
England 2-0 9/2
England 3-0 6/1
BTTS: England & no, Japan v Senegal draw & yes, Poland v Colombia draw & yes 30/1

Got a few other accas running as well still and a nice treble win thanks to Ze Germans pulling it out late on.
