According to what I've heard on Twitter, Paddy Power are donating £10,000 to LGBT causes every time Russia score a goal. :biggrin:

I think we have already discussed the gratuitous use of images of attractive women.

It seems my Senegalese chaps have done well against those Polish chaps :)

That explains the rather sombre mood in the neighbourhood when I was on my way home.

I think you will find that Russia has only 3points, unless Putin has given them a Bonus 3 points at the end of the first round.

Oops! I got the points from BBC sport, but forgot that Russia have already played their second match. Tables now corrected.

I like your proactive positive attitude, although the big one is yet to come out of this group, bottom place gets the beers in.

Bye.

FFS.


I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I got Morocco in a sweepstake on another forum, and I echo your sentiments.

Champions elect to shine a light through the shadow of darkest Peru tonight.

All those marmalade sandwiches are bound to slow them down. 

Do they have paper name tags attached with string rather than printed on their shirts?

France 3 Peru 0

The heroic Danes continue their relentless charge to World Cup glory, holding those well known football gods Australia to a 1-1 draw.

Despite the Aussies attempting to rile the Danes, the Northern Europeans were unflappable :

....which led to considerable unrest among the Southern Hemisphere players...
