I watched the game tonight.

Half wanted Italy out for the drama on the night. Half wanted Italy through because they would be a more exciting prospect to watch in Russia.

Italy had a nightmare path to the finals in a group with Spain and Holland and then they could not have drawn a tougher unseeded team in the play offs. England would have not qualified in the same circumstances.

I'm more worried about Sweden qualifying. England always struggle against them and sods law says we will be in the same group as them with a top south american country.

Agree re England. Italy would have expected to beat Sweden over 2 legs, though.

England are playing against the Netherlands this evening. So 1500 drunken Brits are making nuisances of themselves in Amsterdam at the moment.

Idiots.

Cardiff are promoted :clap: :dance: :guiness;
The draw with Reading was good enough with Fulham losing. Neil Warnock has performed miracles as they have punched well above their weight. Major investment is required if they are going to survive in the Premier and I think a change of ownership is required.
