I'm watching MmeLindt. Still don't know who to root for, I like them both. It'll come to me as I'm watching.

I'm there. Still sobbing over Ghana but enjoying the youth and vitality the Germans are offering. grin

MmeLindt Wed 07-Jul-10 19:30:36

Join me in supporting Germany then, I will share the Bier und Brezeln.

DD shouting at them to hurry up as she is sleepy and wants to go to bed.

ABitTipsy Wed 07-Jul-10 19:31:48

Germany. I used to have gorgeous German boyfriend many moons ago so I kinda have a soft spot for them grin

MmeLindt Wed 07-Jul-10 19:34:34

Oh, a streaker.

compo Wed 07-Jul-10 19:35:42

I'm supporting Germany all the way
I thought the Netherlands were a bit dull last night

sidles in with a large rioja

MmeLindt Wed 07-Jul-10 19:41:07

Going to open some German wine now.

Oh, my nerves!

BigGreenBin Wed 07-Jul-10 19:43:05

rioja here too, but expect the germans have already got their towels out on the seats at the stadium in Capetown for sunday grin

MmeLindt Wed 07-Jul-10 19:44:23


I will tell DH that one.

agalchchangedhername Wed 07-Jul-10 19:44:39

Gotta be Germany here cos DH has a bet on them!!!!

EnglandAllenPoe Wed 07-Jul-10 19:45:34

DH is half- Dutch so we are with The Netherlands!

but tonight, with Spain..

mind you it looks to be Germanys game very much so far...

<sigh> The Germans get somewhat unbearable when they win things like this, but they are playing really well at the moment and would deserve to win. What I like most about the team is that it's the first really multicultural one - Özil, Boateng, etc. This will hopefully do a lot to convince the majority of Germans that you don't HAVE to be called Müller and have an ethnic German background traceable back to 10 generations in order to represent your country.

Is it true that 'to be mullered' is now an expression in the UK following that UK-Germany match?

Mme Lindt, I'm drinking Jever rather than Becks. It's been so loud here for every German goal so far in this World Cup - not just the Vuvuzelas, but the fireworks. I didn't know you could buy fireworks legally in summer.

MmeLindt Wed 07-Jul-10 19:49:37

That is true. My DH commented on the fact that there are very few "German" names on the team.

<waves to Oliver Bierhoff>

BigGreenBin Wed 07-Jul-10 19:51:03

Most of the goals in the whole tournament for germany have been scored by Poles.

MmeLindt Wed 07-Jul-10 20:21:29

Hmm, rather disappointed with that first half.

LetThereBeRock Wed 07-Jul-10 20:27:39

I'm not watching as I'm making soup but I'm checking the BBC site reguarly.

I want the Germans to win.

sayanything Wed 07-Jul-10 20:30:35

Still neutral. Spain won the Euro, so by rights it should be Germany's turn. And Spain had the easier run to the semis. But Germany won the Eurovision Song Contest...

Oooh here we go.

oricella Wed 07-Jul-10 20:47:21

Keeping an eye on the score - curious to see who we'll be playing Sunday ..

MmeLindt Wed 07-Jul-10 20:48:41

Oh dear oh dear. This is not looking good. Wish Germany would get a move on a score. Spain are looking better at the moment.

oricella Wed 07-Jul-10 20:55:42

will the octopus be right again then?

LetThereBeRock Wed 07-Jul-10 20:57:15

I hope not.

Earlybird Wed 07-Jul-10 20:57:58

I'm listening, but not watching.

Based on listening, it seems a boring game. Is watching better?

Earlybird Wed 07-Jul-10 20:59:17

Ok - not boring!!
