just the pools at the Mo Jill, ties are irrelevant at the mo as the four teams (four?) all play each other and the top two (i think) from each pool goes through to the next round, points are awarded for wins and a tie, nothing for a loss, if there's a tie with points it will go down to most goals scored, conceeded etc, known as the goal difference.

once in the knock out rounds, quarters, semi's etc, in the event of a tie they will play another 30mins -two 15min halves, not sure if it's a full 30 mins or 'golden goal' (do they still do that?) where the first to score is the winner. if at the end of the 30mins it's still draw (tie) then it will go to penalty shoot outs, we always do really well in these, especially against the Geermans!

my knowledge of football (soccer is an american term cos they stole the name 'football' for their armoured rugby - no offence!) is about 10yrs or more out of date so, i'm possibly wrong on the finer points!

Ok so I finally watched (soccer? football?) for the first time I think.
I think I watched Rugby once in the winter and it was just a jumble of guys in a heap.
Anyway, I was watching it with my 85 year old friend and he likened the sound of those stupid horns to the shrieks of ladies seeing Frank Sinatra in concert.
We also didn't understand the whole "tie" concept. What? No overtime?
The most interesting thing to me was the adverts on the walls changing every so often. Bet that was expensive.

Bring back Alf Ramsay I say. What does Fabio Cappello know. :roll: (Most likely he is a Mole for Italy making sure England perfom badly.)
Sure he pretends he wants the team to win, but secretly he is making sure that England do poorly so that Italy have a greater chance of winning.

If the English national football team were actually managed by an "Englander " I reckon they would have a greater chance of winning :-?

I think you will find they may be on "their" way home. And you are pleading for them to "lose".

I think (and don't care) both will go through. And both lose when they play a half decent team. England most likely on pens. :lol1:

Do you wanna go another tenner? :wink:

I will Hugh...and your team is looking about as good as Neil's :D

It's not only about the Football it's the whole event, watching games in pubs, having people round with a few beers and the feel good factor, you certainly don't need to be football fan to enjoy it.

I'm off the Alton Towers till Sunday...yeah I know bad timing by the Mrs.
So will sort the sweep stake out Sunday Evening,

Any suppliers want to put a small prize up for grabs..... :roll:

I was there with the kids too (didn't see you though!), I think the aussies and the boks have by far the best supporters for the banter and atmosphere, even the French have a good sense of humour around a rugby pitch!

my boka mate was at the other end of the stadium and phoned me up to tell me they'd just scored against us before blowing his hooter down the phone :roll: superb pre, during and post match atmosphere in Cardiff, nowhere else has it!

i am not a football fan at all... just cant be bothered with it.

The only time Ive ever got caught up in a match was years ago with my mates, when we were in Spain. England were doing well in the world cup final rounds... combined with plenty beer and the brilliant atmosphere it was a great night. even though they got beat. :D

Personal view on the world cup, ide prefer England, Scotland, Ireland or Wales to do it over anyone, im not fussed... :D



now wheres my squeegee... :lol1:

As I'm Welsh it's law that we support whoever is against England..... :D

Sorry guys not much I can do about it :(

To be honest though I prefer Rugby, much more exciting to watch.

I'll catch some games I guess but won't lose any sleep if I don't see many.

No idea who's going to win. But I reckon England will be out in the quarter finals. Argentina might be good for a bet tho. :)

So used to Scotland not being there that it makes no difference LOL, but I still get wrapped up in it regardless even tho I'm not much of a footie fan. It's a brilliant event!

Semi finals at least, I can feel it in my water.
