Wow I had no idea you're so young... but then again you probably think the same about me. :mrgreen:

If I was ollder my political views would be very different. I would probably have voted Brexit along with the rest of the over 30s :mrgreen:

I still don't believe Croatia is in the World Cup semifinal... after 20 years of our last group progress we have done it again and now we're one step away from the final.

It's just incredible after so many years of disappointments. :)

I don't know in what kind of condition Croatian players are going to be, but we played more than 250 minutes in less than 7 days while England won both matches in 90 minutes and there are only 3 days to regenerate, recover and prepare at the same time for the historic semifinal clash.

Well, I have no understanding for them. You wanna be the best, you gotta beat the best.

Give everything you have to beat the 1998 generation.

Good lad. Priorities right. Always knew he was a keen cricketer so have a lot of time for him. Same with Kane.

Ffs shouting at police dogs for being German :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Don't know what annoys me more. Shouting at a dog (yes police dogs are trained for such things but maybe they did it to other "German" dogs who were just pets) or using it as another excuse to have a go at the most powerful country in Europe with seven titles to its name. Fucking idiots. Please Croatia please do it. I've had enough now.

I'm probably alone in my thinking on this, but for me the World Cup goes about one week too long. I like the number of matches; I like that the winner has to play seven times. So I'm not asking for less teams or less games. I just want them to play more often. Three days off between matches would be best. For equity, four days off may be necessary on occasion, but try to mainly keep it to three days off between matches, thereby playing every fourth day.

I found that my interest waned by the end of yesterday. I was excited about England, but now I barely care. I know that doesn't make sense, but I think things are just dragged on too long.

The semifinals are meaningless for me. The games start at 2 p.m. ET which is prime work hours. Oh well :|

Tbh I agree. I had been looking forward to it for months and making plans to watch every game and so on and now I'm barely paying attention to the games on TV while I'm in the same room. It does feel a bit dragging.
