Start of tournament I got 18/1. Now they are 9/1.
Either way it's free money because we're going to win this one and the next one under Sir Gareth (who should also be named Prime Minister on his return).

Even though it would make English football fans insufferable to listen to for another 50 years , I wouldn't mind seeing England lift the cup. England, Belgium or Croatia would be a great underdog story.

Can't see it , would love it if they did but those 3 at the back will get exposed against top class opposition and we lack that one great player in midfield . If England had Modric then you'd have a proper side.

Lovely backhanded compliment. We probably deserve another world cup win for the hope and expectations we've suffered with.

I'd definitely take it.

I thought I was the only one disappointed yesterday, I think against a good team they would have scored 4 and us probably 3..........

Our defence is terrible but going forward we look good and full of running......... Certainly the most exciting WC team we've had for a long time

That was close, I should have stuck to my one and only bet but got pissed/excited and went all in on Senagal to win..................

So ive bust my original $60 start which was as high as $160 at one point. I start again tonight, sober

You're so much better than this negativity. Was your mouth out and dream of Gareth being knighted.

Spot on. We basically have no defense - that was apparent in the first game too.

If you think about it, 6-1 was actually 3-1 when you take out (a) the 2 penalties that probably wouldn't have resulted in goals if the game had just played, and (b) the goal that was probably offside and even if it wasn't was an accidental deflection off the back of Kane's foot. The result looks great, the game was so so. Especially the second half.

Actually no, this is fun.

Come on England!!

And you England fans, just think how great you will feel when the the lads are out there holding old Jules up high, with captain, leader, legend JT right there in the middle of them ( I assume he has already purchased his replica shirt for the occasion).

Thankfully that hasn't materialised in the majority of the games I've watched.

Will be watching EngBel with a Belgian colleague, then will be conflicted (not really) if the next one is EngJap bearing in mind that Bahtatgirl is of that particular Asian persuasion.
