We have to beat the US! As my friend in California pointed out this morning "soccer is mainly a girl's game"!

Gosh that came out of the blue.

Ooops, I was just emailing an American friend.

That was fast.

We have no ITV/Sky here so have Arsene Wenger in the commentary box hmm

wooo hoo <catwheels> grin

ITV HD - kindly went to adverts for the goal, so we missed it! What fab coverage NOT

or even cartwheels but either way i spilt my beer!

I think they should award the first goal to the team who sings their national antem te best. It would open up all sorts of possibilities....jazz hands..tap dancing..teeth and eyes. Much more entertaining.

What the hell happened there - ITV cut to an ad and by the time they got back England had scored.....

Apparently they did something similar in a Liverpool - Everton FA cup tie a couple of years ago.

katycarr Sat 12-Jun-10 19:41:16

Is it different on HD to the normal ITV then furball?

Portofino Sat 12-Jun-10 19:42:18

Can't they wait til half time? I bet ad rates are extortionate during England matches....

Furball Sat 12-Jun-10 19:42:59

No idea Katycarr - We've only got it on HD so don't know whats going on on normal ITV

tibni Sat 12-Jun-10 19:43:07

No ad breaks on standard ITV yet.

katycarr Sat 12-Jun-10 19:44:57

We have HD IVT but don't use it, mainly because I don't know the number. Probably just as well. We saw the goal on ITV.

Furball Sat 12-Jun-10 19:45:04

Obviously an american in charge of the ad button on HD (grin)

MmeLindt Sat 12-Jun-10 19:45:24

Slight <snurk> at the irony of those who were chuffed with their snazzy HD TVs missing the goal. Bet ITV get loads of emails about that.

Furball Sat 12-Jun-10 19:45:26

Obviously an american in charge of the ad button on HD grin

RustyBear Sat 12-Jun-10 19:52:33

It wasn't really a proper ad break, just a bit of an ad & then a snippet of the Argentina game - somebody obviously pressed the wrong button at the crucial moment.

Bet there were a few ructions in the pubs when that happened!

FabIsGettingFit Sat 12-Jun-10 20:12:29

NOooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

MmeLindt Sat 12-Jun-10 20:12:40

Whooops. Butterfingers

3BreastsInMyShirt Sat 12-Jun-10 20:13:20

Whoops.
