Phew indeed! Had to go out to lunch before the end but fortunately the restaurant/ bar always have sport on and were quite willing to watch football. DH couldn’t quite see the score so one of the regulars kept us informed.

Watching a BIG football match with Mr R is a nightmare. shock He shouts, he yells, he gets totally over excited .... but even so I am going to watch the match with him. Now that is brave but I have to support ENGLAND. So come what may I will stay with it ... Oh My Goodness what if it goes to penalties????? Please think of me my Gransnet England Fans!!!!!!

Bridie22 Wed 16-Aug-23 08:31:14

What a quandary, nobody wants to support me🤔 but that's OK because Come on England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿⚽️

I’m the same, Pittcity. I love watching all the preamble - teams coming out, hands being shook, anthems being sung - and the game itself until there’s a goal scored. Then I busy myself with my phone or Kindle - it’s all just too stressful. Penalties would finish me off.

DH thinks it’s all very odd, and I tend to agree. smile
