Has anybody been watching the football?

I would love us to win, it means such a lot to so many. My grandchildren would be ecstatic.

I'd love us to win too. It would lift people's spirits.

Anyone planning to watch the match tomorrow England v France?

NotAGran55 Fri 09-Dec-22 19:14:51

My own team are kicking off an hour early at 2 o’clock to enable the supporters time to get home.

Jane71 Fri 09-Dec-22 19:18:39

DH has it on so I end up watching it.

AmberSpyglass Fri 09-Dec-22 19:24:16

Maybe this is sexist of me, but I don’t really watch men’s football. It’s just not as exciting.

Croatia is through 😀

The Argentina Netherlands game is both horrible and amazing! Who’d’ve thought Netherlands would equalise.

Jaxjacky Fri 09-Dec-22 21:23:43

An amazing set piece second goal for the Netherlands, the referee is rubbish. Can’t control the game, inconsistent and prejudiced.

I really want Netherlands to win, but can’t see it happening…hope I am wrong!

Blossoming Fri 09-Dec-22 21:31:56

It’s more exciting than some of the others!

Blossoming Fri 09-Dec-22 21:57:52

Argentina are through

I usually want the underdog to win. I only watch football every 4 years so I am obviously an expert. Croatia was the better team today and they were rewarded.

I will be glued to the screen tomorrow evening- I do hope we win but France as a team is superb. We have done well to get so far. Scotland did not make it so I am shouting for England, mainly because I live here now.

I wanted them to win, too. What a game. Summed up perfectly by Gary Lineker afterwards. ‘Bl**dy hell’. I know the referee was inconsistent but he was up against some terrible behaviour.

Prosecco and mince pies at the ready, fire lit, tv on. Should be an exciting evening,

We are booked to go out tonight 6 of us to a Christmas party 5 of them normally watch football me I am just glad to be going put instead of suffering the football

Urmstongran Sat 10-Dec-22 19:21:53

Oh NO❗️

LizzieDrip Sat 10-Dec-22 19:22:51

I’m with you rosie. I can’t stand football and I’ll be bloomin’ glad when the World Cup is over. My DH is obsessed with it! I don’t like the way it has become ‘cool’ to like football and ergo not cool if you don’t like it. One of my grandsons is not into football and says you can’t really say that at school because people will say you’re a ‘nerd’ etc. I say to him ‘you do you’ and it doesn’t matter what others think. Football appears (to me) to be all about following the crowd. I prefer to be my own person, and prefer that for my grandson too. Sorry for offending footie fans here - no offence meant. Just my experience.
