Woke up with a semi
We have a word for it, because we get it. Hwyl!
I'll be furious if Portugal make it to the Final by beating Wales. Portugal have been absolute wank while Wales and Iceland have been the teams of the tournament.
An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman walk into a pub to watch Wales in the Quarter Semi Finals <full stop>
my head hurts
England for the record, this is why your neighbours like to watch you fail.
Where's that from? Who wrote it?
It's not exactly the feedback you're getting on Urban or that you'd get off anyone other than a total cunt of newspaper columnis is it?
twatter. And of course its not indictive of the entire country, just like a collection of drunken racist hooligans represent British soccer fans. FFS
It's horrible. If it's any consolation I hate the England team and I'm English.
Childhood Man U fan, so I can totally relate.
This is the most I've ever liked Robbie Savage. He does say "twats it into the net", doesn't he?
Listen to Robbie Savage go MENTAL after Sam Vokes' goal
So this is what a 3-goal, semi-final hangover feels like.
Great performance from Wales, rode out loads of pressure and hit well on the counter attack, not to mention some good sustained possession at times. Belgium didn't seem to know what to do with corners, Williams could have had a hat trick!
Testament to how well the rest of the team performed as I thought Bale was a bit quieter and less effective than previous games, hope he brings his A-game against Portugal and a certain teammate
Well done, may as well carry on the celebrations today I would have thought?
Mea culpa. I made a joke in an earlier thread about Wales not reaching the semis, which as it turns out was a continuation of my woeful record of football punditry So I'll now say you'll never make the final and see you there on the tenth.
Oi, Joe, my shirt's dirty!
- Oh, sorry, I dropped it.
Have we had this? Anyway, even if so, deserves every airing:
(Big Joe Ledley busts a move)
eta: actually reminds me of some of the celebratory pre-or-post battle scenes Tolkien used to write .
I think we need to stay away from even this correct version, as it has England the 2nd best team in the world.
There is an actual thing that sorts out the best team in the world by who beat the best, lineal world champions or something. Ditto boxing.
Most people in England get behind the other British and Irish teams when they get to the tournaments.
The Euro semi finals is probably the high point of the Welsh national team since there has been one, why do you give a fuck about England who haven't had a tournament as good as this one or even had an impact on a major tournament since 2002?
Was in a pub last night full of English people cheering Wales.
I always back all the home nations/Ireland, aware that plenty in Wales, Scotland et al don't reciprocate. But that's how it is, obvious economic and political reasons for all that. Doesn't lead to me wanting to do tit for tat, why bother? Just fucking enjoy it. If things were different and all the home nations were about the same size, had the same finances and equally strong leagues, I'm might be less charitable, but I doubt it. It's all good.
So was my household. If any one wants to jump around with joy when England gets knocked out by Iceland, that's their leisure time.
you'd think they'd be grateful
Certainly wish them well, but they're no Albania
I was actually happy for Iceland at the same time as being gutted as an Englishman.
While cheering on Wales, and their performance was great, Belgium played well and deserve some recognition for that.
That's often the way.
Thought they were average and wales excellent.
I do always root against Portugal whoever they are playing, but I don't think I'm unique in that because Polish, French and Germans also do that
Regardless, next Wales game I'm wearing my Belgium shirt and secretly supporting Wales. Keep to the ritual, keep the luck going.
