Gut wrencher for sure, got a feeling we were playing for penalties,
from the latter stages in normal time, the intent was there to take to extra time then pens.
Frank...made me do it.

A bit of prespective. England came through an easy qualifying group and in the finals they beat Tunisia, with a stoppage time goal, Panama, Columbia minus their star player on penalties and a Swedish team who had lost to the worst German team of all time.

We got to the semi final of Euro 2016, beating Belgium in the quarter final and going out to the eventual winners.

I have to stick by my terms of the offer, otherwise what was the point of doing it. Forget football, I didn't even watch it I went to Brick Lane to get some Beigels.

Music is the way to recovery if you are depressed by a silly game with 22 people kicking a ball about. To get to the last four out 32? was not bad eh!

Music never loses 8-)

My footy equiv is my NVA reviews thread - the score so far there is about 200 goals for (estimated) to 1 against (which was offside).

I have thought of a little gesture to commiserate for losing in the semi - free outward shipping for any loans booked before midnight tonight.

Still 3rd place to play for :guiness;

Will ask to loan A40s on the correct thread, if available - was going to buy once we won (hahaha) but would be good to see how they compare to the AP20 I still have on loan from my friend. Thanks for the kind gesture in lieu of the loss.
