Yes, you were negligent in mentioning to which tests you were referring…so I picked the more conventional tests used 😘
The one time this website doesn't have a thread going for the football, and it's the one time in 55 years that England gets to the Final!
This site is like that Tory MP who vowed not to watch an England game this year because they were taking the knee! Oops!
...and that's exactly what you are doing here for years:
Instead of helping to move the discussion forward by helping out with facts or any helpful information, you knowingly throw out-of context information (the tests that have been used in Liverpool have an accuracy of max. 60%) into the discussion just to make a cheap point against me and show how smart you are.
You were free to do exactly that, NP, as was everyone else here.
There are plenty of other threads where your sharp wit and debating skills would be appreciated, Higgins. Why hide away in this little corner?
Because you have closed the Brexit, Covid and political threads, Barbel 😂
Now seriously, I started in the off-topic with my concerns about the consequences of the stadium-packing in London and it was Sir Miles, who kind of replied by throwing smoke and mirrors - as usually.
I've tried to stay on topic - Sir Miles not so much, so why don't you give this kind of advise to him?
Because he contributes elsewhere, which is what I'm asking.
🤣 I absolutely stayed on topic 🤣
I’m not sure why you are SO obsessed with me though 🤷🏻♂️
So called England fans have tried to force their way into Wembley Stadium 🏟
Some football fans (quite irrespective of the team) always have to make a spectacle out of themselves and let their side down. It doesn't reflect well on them, especially in the current Covid-19 climate where at least most people are trying their best day to day to comply with the government regulations.
What's all this rubbish?
@Barbel I was only joshing about how we haven't set up a Euro 2020/21 thread. I don't actually care.
@Higgins I agree about the boorish crap from England fans, in particular the laser pen. It makes me queasy and ashamed to be an England supporter. It's odd how at odds it is with the England team who come across as decent and principles - the taking the knee thing is great - but are at odds with a) The fans - booing the opposing national anthem and b) The Govt.
There was a lot of rain tonight, which was good for the lawn.
Re the match. We got beaten. Didn't show up for the second half, didn't throw on any amazing subs until it was too late for them to do anything. We wasn't robbed. I would never, ever have predicted we'd have gone to the Final and Extra Time and Penalties going by the opening games.
a) The fans - booing the opposing national anthem…
Whilst I don’t particularly like this, it’s something that most nations do to the opposition national anthem…I get more angry with racial and homophobic slurs that the knuckle draggers can’t wait to post immediately afterwards 🤬
It should be like the game against Ukraine in Rome - fans should face a middle class test from now on.
They should name their favourite white and red wines, be able to discuss garden paragolas, and give a potted account of the Rufus Sewell series Zen. England flags should be clean and fresh out of the box.
Six packs allowed but not as beer.
I have visitors so I may not be able to post very often. Not much is happening here, but yesterday I went swimming in the deepest lake in Europe (it's not far, but it's 514 m deep) and spotted a Synnøve Macody Lund lookalike. The weather was really nice. 😁
You mean a bit more like this 👀🤣
Ha! Ha! That's it! (The State we're in, I can't find a decent emoticon of a laugh, I feel like a stroke victim on this site nowadays... I mean, even that stroke victim joke I could soften by having that 'gulp!' emoticon but it's not hear any more.)
Anyway, fans should also order their G+Ts at the bar to be ready for the interval.
Just use the keyboard emojis Nappy 👍🏻
My new phone is (alledgely) waterproof. It's also said to be able to take photos underwater, a feature that's unlikely to be used by me. My brother-in-law just suggested the next step om smartphone evolution - a small propeller that emerges from the dropped phone and sendes it back to the owner on the surface. 😂
Ten years since the terror attacks in Oslo and Utøya where 77 people where murdered. My thoughts are with the victims. Radical politics that preaches that people with other views should be killed is tragically still an issue.
I talked to a German lady om vacation here yesterday who came from the areas hit by flood. The images we see om TV are dramatic and the number of victims are tragic. I hope everyone living in sentral Europe are safe.
Today it's ten years since the terrorist attacks om Utøya and Oslo. Hopefully we'll be better at stopping voilent political extremism in the future.
Congratulations to Hidilyn Diaz who has won the gold medal in the 55kg weightlifting class for the Philippines - the first gold medal in the country’s history after 97 years! And how nice to see her saluting the flag and respecting the national anthem - the whole country is proud of you.
