I'll be watching this with a can of Irn Bru and a lot of hope.

Much more excited for Argentina uruguay.

I still feel for Scotlands keeper. He basically needs a shutout today to get everyone to not think about the netting

This is my least favorite of the broadcasting teams.  The play by play guy sounds like mix between Bob Costas and the stereotypical baseball broadcaster on the Simpsons.

If he was on Cameo I'd pay to have him say "And heeeere come the pretzels!"

Really hoping England gets a Glasgow Kiss this afternoon. Not likely, but still.

Since the main event for me is England/Scotland, and I shall be supporting the Three Lions, would it be hypocritical/unpatriotic of me to enjoy a glass of single malt Scotch while actively rooting against the Scots?

The weather in the UK at the moment has decided to be properly british and absolutely piss it down.

It might have cleared by kickoff, but it's a lot colder today than it has been all week. 10 or so degrees (c) lower.

Reuters is reporting that with the UK's restrictions sticking around for a while, UEFA is preparing a backup plan for the semifinals and the final; with Budapest being considered as a new host

Sweden's neutrality is extending even to its soccer team and its unwillingness to engage in offensive operations.

desertgeek: Reuters is reporting that with the UK's restrictions sticking around for a while, UEFA is preparing a backup plan for the semifinals and the final; with Budapest being considered as a new host


what it comes down to is uefa want to bring in 2500 or so vips from all over Europe, and the current uk rules mean they'd have to quarantine beforehand.

Uefa would rather go to a country with no coronavirus restrictions and fill the stadium than inconvenience some rich people.

The Uk is considering allowing a temporary waiver of the rule, but if england get knocked out before the semi finals they'll like say 'fark it, let Hungary have it'.

So they'll say "fark it, let Hungary have it" then.

It was supposed to be last year, but due to *gestures broadly*; it was pushed to this year but it retains the original name

/same with the Olympics in a month

too expensive to redesign all the logos and stuff.

The Spurs Managerial Search Bingo Card continues to fill up. They broke off negotiations after finding out Gattuso is a problematic figure when it comes to his beliefs.

My Laurent Blanc bingo is still on the table...

Big Sam can probably be tempted out with a bit of pie and mash.

I went over to my FM save, where Hertha Berlin somehow became the #1 team in Germany. They landed a bunch of hot prospects at once and never looked back.

I'm hoping for the return of Tactics Tim Sherwood at this point.
 
2021-06-18 10:13:24 AM  
Something happened!

It was flagged offside anyway!
 
2021-06-18 10:13:28 AM  
Blast Hardcheese save there
 
2021-06-18 10:14:01 AM  
Big McLargeHuge makes the save, but offside anyway

What a save by Olsen!

What are Gattuso's beliefs?
 
2021-06-18 10:15:05 AM  
And a big save for the Slovak keeper too!
 
2021-06-18 10:15:42 AM  
And it's Dúbravka's turn for a huge save.

Sexist, homophobic, racist. You know, the stuff you'd expect to pop up to keep someone from getting a job.

Apparently, Spurs supporters started sharing his garbage on social media and that got the attention of the club.

Among the many things mentioned in the #NoToGattuso hashtag, according to Marca:

- He headbutted and grabbed the throat of Jamie Redknapp's assistant in 2011. He apologized for that, saying he lost his cool after being heckled for a long time
- Opposes gay marriage (specifically mentioning marriage by the church back in 2008, so who knows if he thinks civil unions are fine? It was a very long time ago)
- Opposes women being in powerful positions in football (said back in 2013)
- Dismissed the racist abuse of Kevin-Prince Boateng by Milan ultras (which led to him leaving in 2013) as being the work of a few idiots, not that the ultras themselves were racist

So a lot of it is 8-13 year old stuff that he might not believe anymore. He was a massive hothead during his playing career.
