Ok guys, Catinthehat2 started the last one. Who wants to join another?

I'll start

England 2 Algeria 1 goal scored in 17th minute. My £100 paid smile

Off to work now.

See you all for kick off at 730.

2-0 to Algeria

Capello will sub Green for James in despair grin

Wordsonascreen Fri 18-Jun-10 18:00:31

I reckon James will be in the starting line up TBH.

(shame as England were SO dismal last time it seems unfair to blame Green for one slip up)

England 2 - Algeria 1

James is in the starting line up, but I predict he'll cock up and Green will have to come back on

Chiles has no tie

England 1 Algeria 0

First goal at 37 minutes

First red card at 47 minute

My $100Eroticon paid.

schilke Fri 18-Jun-10 19:02:12

England 4 Algeria 1
First goal in 13th minute.

I'm hoping that writing that will make me feel less worried. I don't think I can actually bring myself to watch!

I'll pay a few cold Savanna ciders and a bag of peanuts.

catinthehat2 Fri 18-Jun-10 19:05:22

1 <yawn> - 1 <boring>

First goal in the 37th minute <utter tedium>

Here's £100 in 1p & 2p pieces, I guarantee it will be more interesting putting them into £1 piles than watching the game itself.

I'm off to watch some paint dry wink

(I notice Lenin has visited the cash point this time)

england 2, algeria 0, 25th minute

Hi guys.

Just back in time from work.

Varied predictions tonight, goal scorers/mistakes etc. Makes it more fun than the footie wink

No time now to list all the predictions, but,easy enough to check back later.

Enjoy the match, hope it's more interesting than the last one.

god...can't watch thjis

Wordsonascreen Fri 18-Jun-10 19:53:09

Oh gawd

This is dull

I'm going to post this in the vain hope I will be proved completely wrong and we'll score in the next 20 seconds..

williewalshsballs Fri 18-Jun-10 20:09:50

we score before half time

orienteerer Fri 18-Jun-10 20:10:53

This is embarrassing!

MerryMarigold Fri 18-Jun-10 20:11:41

It's still dull. In the words of the commentator, "England still haven't got it going?"

I'm looking forward to my winnings! (I predicted 1-0.)

Dh predicts 2-0 to England and claims he got Germany right today so he is on a roll!

orienteerer Fri 18-Jun-10 20:11:45

I predict we don't make it through the group stage blush.

Wordsonascreen Fri 18-Jun-10 20:13:39

its the 44th min

hmmm

Wordsonascreen Fri 18-Jun-10 20:14:33

I might go and have a bubble bath

FFS

orienteerer Fri 18-Jun-10 20:16:44

I'm going to have more wine, tis the only way grin.

Meglet Fri 18-Jun-10 20:17:47

oh we are shit.

I'm emigrating to a country that can actually play football. Which only seems to leave me with Brazil hmm smile. Or Argentina.

orienteerer Fri 18-Jun-10 20:22:02

Meglet - never been there but I'd opt for Argentinagrin.

mrsfrisby Fri 18-Jun-10 20:23:43

Wine....envy

Oh the shame. I suppose I would be apathetic if I, like them, was only earning a tenner a week. Oh hang on - that's right, they aren't. They earn RIDICULOUS MONEY to play like shite. Gah!

I had a bath in the hopes it would make something happen. Sadly it didn't.

So, Wimbledon then.....

Ingles2 Fri 18-Jun-10 20:26:15

this is SHITE... I can't bear to watch!
Somehow I've managed to drink 1/2 bottle of wine since 7.30...it's nervous drinking. don't even know I'm doing it.
ds1 is sitting calmly in the armchair
ds2 is oblivious
I'm pacing the lounge like an expectant father!
This can't go on.
