Come to Medway. Shop in Chatham has got a huge variety of East European lagers. Well worth you dropping in. There’s no decent pubs in Chatham itself, but plenty around Medway.

Oh, the tournament has started has it? Been paying more attention what has been going on / not going on in Edgbaston & Durban.

As for the game, Poland dominated the first half , though I don’t think that any of the 2 cards that sokratis got and was sent off was justified. We were better during the last 30 min and could have won if we hadn’t missed the penalty. All in all 1-1 was probably a fair result.

I can agree with all of that. Maybe the second one was closer to being just but the first one was clearly not justifiable at all. But then again, the penalty and red card for Szczesny - almost as if it was an attempt of the referee to redeem himself for Sokratis.



Entertaining match from two of the worse sides in the tournament. Poland knew this was their only chance of scoring, let alone winning, so they went for it. Agree the first yellow was harsh, but the penalty and red card were spot on - nothing else the ref could do (though he must have feared for his life as he pulled out the red card - is he still alive by the way?)

It has sneaked up without much fuss, hasn’t it?

There seems no expectation that England will do well, so perhaps this time they just might?

Can you eat too much asparagus? I am on my 20th spear. Steamed and eaten with english shepherds pie.

Czech are back in it


I passed out on super strength East European lagers and missed the second half.


No, sorry, not passed out - I fell asleep after a hard days work.....

Cheers to the Danish crew, may the best win! Best regards ... from Holland.


Looks like they might win. Two good teams, but the Dutch are playing their socks off, and are still losing.

Why do Denmark insist on playing out from the keeper?


It’s totally crap, and they should pay for it with giving away a goal, but they are winning!
