Fuck off Linekar. Making excuses for the loss of pics.

I am off to the offy to wind up the Turkish owner.

See you tomorrow.

Cant be arsed reading the thread, but anyone know why the fuck the Kraut fans have adopted the White Stripes as their new chant? Sickening.

Turkey dominate, that clown Lehmann gifts two goals... and still...

"Football is a simple game; 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans win." Lineker.

Haha, yeah I suppose so. But there wasn't a hint of "we were lucky and didn't deserve it". Not much humility iykwim.

I suppose that's what makes them winners though.
I'll never forget being in a pub with two French women when England played France. England went 1 - 0 up and I felt sorry for them through the rest of the match and kept commiserating right up until the point when France got two goals and beat us and they went mental and forgot I even existed. I learnt something that day. :)

They definitely do better football songs than us. :)
Good band. I promoted a gig for them in London two years back and they play massive halls in germany so when their fans heard they were playing a tiny venue about 50 flew in from Munich, most of them 1860 fans who just wound the band up all night:D

They gave me a compilation CD of indie tunes by Mehmet Scholl which came out on the same label as their stuff. Could you imagine any England footballer (with possible exception of Owen Hargreaves) doing that?

No, but I can understand why educated Germans have a far better understanding of the perils of nationalism in all its forms than your average Englishman. I remember you got me a pass for a gig in the Windmill and it would be good to meet you sometime. And I remember Twisted Sister. :)

There's still an "1860 Munich fans against fascists" sticker in the toilet!

Felt really sorry for Turkey. Really routing for them and they deserved to go through. If someone told me at the beginning of the tournament I'd be supporting them I would have not believed it, but you have to take your hat off to their spirit.

On another note, this has probably been said a 100 times already but I've jumped straight to the last page and can't be arsed to check; listening to Radio 5 while watching the game is soooo much better than listening to the TV commentary. Way forward for me :)
