Stock up on the largers crisps lads, the World Cup is on soon.

Not the gay fest we usually suffer with the Oscars sending it’s finest to do a triple somersault with pike when an opponent comes with a yard and half of them, followed by a stretcher to carry them off with a hairline fracture of the bootlace. No this one is very different and some of the players actually look like men. Nor with Ingerland falling at the knockout hurdle to a country that probably wasn’t a country 10years ago.

It’s the Women’s World Cup, held, er somewhere. And we might just win it. The master schemer, Philippooo N’eville is the proud man in charge drawing on all his experience no doubt, so ridiculous penalties in injury time and generally inept performances might still be on offer.

It promises to be a ripper and extra points are added for those who can get the ball in the air from a corner and heading it without closing their eyes. Talk of equal pay with the men is right up there as these gals play to packed out stadiums week in week out and certainly its justified if they surpass the boys of 66. They even have their own form of racism with some player from Sheffield getting banned for life for bad mouthing a fellow pro, so to speak. Still, at least some chap can get his tea on a Saturday now. Where is Mrs. (Or is it Mr.?) Campbell now eh?

Best of all, the box set will be out well in time for Xmas.

On the other hand, Love Island never looked so appealing. WineTalcHandbagBinBalls

Who’s a fruit?

On a more sober note, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again in case any of the 4,000 regulars on here didn’t get it. Ok, let them have their fun, nothing wrong with it at all, but prime time telly and slick adverts? FFS. If anyone wants a proper giggle get a clip of the women’s cricket World Cup where they missed the run out. England game I think.

That said, not half as funny as Harold Harry Kane stealing someone’s shirt and masquerading as a striker in the clubs most important game ever. Shades of Becks and Ericson there.

Talking of Becks (ish), when do the Spice Girls play at the KC then?

Well for the World Cup Final in Russia we got a Pussy Riot pitch invasion and for the Champions League Final in Madrid we got a Russian Porn Star. To even things up the French blokes will be planning a full monty gilet jaunes protest for the womens final, beware!

WTF happened in Portugal?

Only seen the goals but by all accounts, England were shite. Has the Gareth bubble burst?

At least we retained a bit of form before the game with a few arrests and even the next Prime Minister getting in on the act. Sterling stuff, so to speak.

Turns out we can't pass, or have a Modric-type player to control the midfield.

And we were young and tired.

How come Holland weren't young and tired? 

Now then...

Big Sam. That’s the answer. He won every England game he managed. Get Pardew, Pulis and Jermaine Jeans in as coaching staff and make Wilshere captain.

He picked Delph. What could possibly have gone wrong?

Pro footballers being tired is the worst excuse.

Viewing figures of over 5 million for England v Scotland.

If believed, it indicates that there is huge public interest in showing the games, irrespective of what the dinosaur, Cheats old bean, thinks. Clearly being out of England so long now has resulted in a cultural arrested development and his views are effectively a nostalgic time capsule stored in his head, completely out of synchronisation with the UK now.

To add insult to injury and us feeling tired, they gave us our 3rd spot medals in a carrier bag?!
Sort it out yourselves?
Some lovely hair cuts on show though.
Anyone recommend a good Turkish barber for me?
I have standards and enjoy a piece of turkish delight washed down with a large glass of reiki.

5 million viewing?

That'll be the whole of Scotland (not counting the million that live in, yet hate, England) hoping for any win, at anything, over their nemeses...

Not sure what your point is here Gully.

Firstly, 5 million - was that by the Allam method? In which case, we’ll call it 3 million. Either way, less than Corrie and Eastenders, and the audience is likely to be the same anyway.

Secondly, only 13,000 at the game. Granted, it was in deepest darkest France and if anyone ever invents EasyJet or Ryanair perhaps that might increase. That, or maybe only 13,000 are genuinely interested.

As I said, they can have their fun but it ain’t box office stuff, so no need to big it up in to something it isn’t. Someone wrote that the tv audience was bigger than the champions league final. Really. Champs final was on BT pay per view. England lasses v Scotland lasses was on prime time BBC where half the “audience” wouldn’t have switched from songs of praise or the Simpsons, whatever was on before. I also heard that a pundit had said some of the England team could hold their own in the Prem. Case closed with shit being spouted like that although to be fair, watching the goal highlights I noticed the England defender refusing to hand the ball back to Scotland after they scored, then rolled around feigning an injury, so maybe they are right and with antics like that they would fit in well with the cheating gamesmanship in the Prem.

Chuckle at Phil too with his Gareth waistcoat on FFS.

I hear the proposed women’s F1 has been abandoned as they can’t get the pits large enough to park the cars in.

As a point of (distant) interest, which male pundit is at the game/weigh in?

Can’t claim to be Jermaine Jeans as he is a fanny to start with. I reckon Paul Scholes would be good value, with Keane too, occasional interaction with Eddy. Fuck, need something to lighten it up.

Don't write the Thai women off as yet.
They will have learned from that defeat and pick up during their next game.

Didn't Phil Chuckle look smart on the line the other day, credit to him.
