I guess all the self proclaimed hot favourites can consider themselves very luck that our frightening "Red Devils" are absent...   8) ;D ;D
We are too busy enjoying our hollidays to get involved in such a non-event such as the worldcup...  ;D ;D ;) :o :-X

We shall be in some backwoods town in Oregon when England are playing in the final. I shall probably have to find an Irish bar for Mrs W to sit in and watch it. In the meantime there will be two weeks of peace before we go as she sits glued to the tv.

Oh Fermi,
The Eurovision features lots of flamboyant, overpaid, truculent and narcissistic performers prancing about their stage, kissing, overacting, snarling and underachieving ...  Ah, I see what you mean!    ;D

If it rains, I will watch some of the games. If not, I will garden etc as usual.

Arnold, nice photograph with Pele. Great player. Great memory to have.

Strangely enough David, the answer is still the same.  I think that football is a complete waste of time.  The last professional game I saw was in 1947 when I was dragged to Ibrox to worship Glasgow Rangers.  Professional sport leaves me cold.  It's all about big money.  This also goes for the Olympic games.  However, I have one claim to fame, I played against Real Madrid in 1957.  My team was beaten 40-1 ---but that's another story!!

You have to tell us more about that Tom! My own claim to fame is playing against Denis Law and Bill Shankly. This was when Shankly was manager of Huddersfield Town and Denis Law was in the youth team and just about to break through to the first team squad. Both of them lived near to me and used to join the local kids for Sunday morning kick arounds in the local rec. I dreamed of Shankly inviting me for a trial but he failed to recognise my undoubted class :P
