    Thanks Chas

    That’s great as we can put some context to the day’s events

    Iceland beat Nigeria, and it leaves Argentina having to win and do the gd thing. Those three goals may be too costly

  2. chas says:

    If I’d have had time I would have put the table information closer to the team names. Soz.

  3. Eddie says:

    why are you so desperate for Argies to lose?? Messi is such a nice guy, best footballer on this planet. I don’t want him to go home yet

  4. mickydidit89 says:

    I don’t want them to get knocked out, and I agree about Messi.

    I’d like them to go through with Croatia. Had the Nigerian idiotic manager given Iwobi the central role, then they’d have won the group easily and that would have been very nice

  5. RC78 says:

    I am rooting for Iceland, Serbia and Brazil

  6. Eddie says:

    Never mind the Nigerian manager , the Worst Manager of the WC 2018 has to go to Sampaoli. If he cannot win the world cup with Messi, Aguero, Mascherano, Dybala, Higuain, Pavon then he should never, ever manage another team again, simples

  7. RC78 says:

    I think France also has a poor manager
    For Argentina – let us see if they make it to the 2nd round because they could click then BUT I agree with all that talent, he should score goals at least.

    Romero – Otamendi, Mascherano, Rojo – Salvio, Banega, Biglia, Perez – Dybala, Aguero, Messi

    That should be the line up.

  8. VP of Oz says:

    Sapaoli reminded me of a Teletubbie.
    Messi, captain of his country and quit after losing their finals appearance. Then comes back and chokes, again! He is an excellent player but more successful as club player not a international. Whereas CR7, no matter who he plays for, he will shine.
    I thought Modric was absolutely superb.

    I think Croatia will rest their best players and Iceland will thus beat them ensuring Argentinas exit.

    Eddie, yes I’ve been to Croatia but only limited in time and places and a very very long time ago. Mortgages, Kids and school fees have prevented a return. I’ve always been Australian first but the issue of not being a republic really riles me up. Croatia is a big part of me, I can speak it, both my parents and my wifes parents are Cro and my son plays for a great Croatian club (Viduka’s old club). But its Australia first and I’ve supported Australia over Croatia in previous World Cup clash without hesitation.

    and then there is Arsenal…

  9. Eddie says:

    it is Arsenal, poland, england in this order.

    I have been to Croatia too, wonderful, wonderful country. And bread!! the best bread in the world. My holidays there were ruined by a drunk, but otherwise it must be my fourth favourite place in the world.

  10. Eddie says:

    I don’t know the argie manager, never heard of him before yesterday, but I know more players in the Argentinian shirts than those wearing polish or english kits. Everyone knows half the Argentinian team.

  11. Eddie says:

    Oh, I don’t think anyone will hear Argie manager’s name after this world cup again.

  12. fred1266 says:

    Time for Iwobi to shine

  13. Eddie says:

    silly fred

  14. mickydidit89 says:

    You have to be joking Mr Idiot Manager of Nigeria. Moron.

    They’d have been 2 up by now had Iwobi started ๐Ÿ™„

  15. mickydidit89 says:

    The prat’s name is Gernot Rohr. Sounds like a twat, probably is.

    Bring on Alex now

  16. fred1266 says:

    Romero injured

  17. fred1266 says:

    Argentina manager coach Chile last 2 years Eddie

  18. mickydidit89 says:

    yessss goooooaaal

  19. mickydidit89 says:

    Quality control and finish

  20. chas says:

    Good goal for the Argies?

  21. mickydidit89 says:

    True, but if Nigeria beat Croatia, they’re through (assuming they win this). Big if, I know, but they’re probably saving Iwobi for just such an eventuality ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. chas says:

    Nigeria have already lost to Croatia!

  23. mickydidit89 says:

    oh, well they best beat someone else then ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. chas says:

    Wall chart must be coming on a storm.

  25. Eddie says:

    2 nil up if Iwobi was playing ๐Ÿ™‚ that’s the end of my depression ROLFing

  26. Big Raddy says:

    Croatia were excellent but I can’t see them beating Spain.

    No Iwobi? Nigeria anager is complete and utter imbecile. They would be 5 up by now had he played.

  27. chas says:

    Game over

  28. mickydidit89 says:

    ha ha
    missed the 2nd goal
    oh god, var…

  29. mickydidit89 says:

    oh bollocks

  30. chas says:

    No pen – fell over his own feet

  31. chas says:


  32. mickydidit89 says:

    blimey, the icelandic fans are doing that “we’re all going on a seal hunt” battle cry

  33. mickydidit89 says:

    converted he he

  34. Big Raddy says:

    ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  35. mickydidit89 says:

    just showed me wife moi as mrs iwobi. she loves it

  36. Big Raddy says:

    My only problem with this result is that I have spent considerable time in both countries and Iceland is 1000 x 1000 times a better country than Nigeria, both int terms of geography and population.

    Still, Nigeria have Iwobi .. the African Messi

  37. mickydidit89 says:

    that’s a massive difference right there, Erik ๐Ÿ™‚

  38. mickydidit89 says:

    also, and speaking as

  39. mickydidit89 says:

    also, and speaking as Iwobi’s Mum, I can assure you Alex is a lovely boy ๐Ÿ™‚

    great result. best group in the competition

    must go. much fun


    Cheers chas

    Seem to be missing most games due to work. I suppose this is the price you pay when you have a lust for money? I console myself in the knowledge that during my funeral the congregation will know that this was the kind of man who missed Croatia’s splendid treble for the sake of a ยฃ475 fee.

    So far, I’m also very disappointed in Greece’s performance? Its almost as though they haven’t turned up

    Do you know that if you google Newsnow Gr…… Greece appears 2nd? First place is Grimsby.

    A quick one on Wilshere. Ive always defended him but secretly i regarded him as uncouth and suspect that whilst dining he may not know which way to pass the Port? He strikes me as a guy easily conned? The man is basically an Antique dealers delight.

    But i wish him well.

    bejesus the african messi

  42. chas says:

    The African Messi. ๐Ÿ˜

  43. Eddie says:

    RC – Lichsteiner playing for Switzerland is the new signing people are saying is worse than Jack

  44. Big Raddy says:

    The man is a Full Back Eddie, hardly a comparison with Jack and has won the Italian league for each of the last 7 seasons.

  45. Eddie says:

    aha, not sure than why gunners were so rattled . thanks Raddy

    come on Granit!!

  46. Big Raddy says:

    Why aren’t Djourou and Senderos playing for Switzerland?

  47. Eddie says:


  48. Big Raddy says:

    Xhaka best player on the pitch … easily

  49. Eddie says:

    l like litte Shaquiri, feisty little bastard

  50. Eddie says:

    ha! told you!
