England in the World Cup!
« on: July 11, 2018, 05:06:32 PM »
I'm not a football fan but with England sailing into almost unchartered waters in this World Cup (certainly for the first time since the days on scurvy & public floggings), I quite fancied watching tonight's semi-final. So, I look it up on Sky (which we subscribe to) only to find that they aren't carrying it! Seemingly it's going out free-to-air on Canale 5 but we can't get that.

Damn!

I imagine it's on in one of the bars in the village but I'm not that keen! So, I wish them luck & may they carry on exceeding expectations, for once.

That's very true; they did a lot better than anyone expected, including themselves!

I'm sure that their success will have lifted the mood in England, for a while at least.
