Personally, I'll be happy if we can just beat Sweden and reach the semis, something no-one would have thought possible a month ago.

I agree about Belgium, they have played the best football of the tournament along with France, their semi should be a classic though semis seldom are. Eden Hazard last night was sensational and completely overshadowed bloody Neymar.

Easier than I thought it would be as it turned out. Sweden were pretty average, I expected a lot more, but as Barry Davies once said "who cares?"

You can stick AudioAddicts up Westie's arse as far as I am concerned. Apart from to take the piss out of him and it, it doesn't exist. Do you seriously think any of those knob heads who came on the forum just to diss me and nva want to know about this offer :naughty:

We have a real forum here what do we need a joke like that for, at least AoS provides us with entertainment, that joke provides no one with nuffing.

OK Shane and Dave (DSJR) seem to like it, and you are sticking around, so there is an inverse opinion, but people do not treat me and nva with that lack of respect and expect me to not react to it.

As my wife works for the police and was due to have her rest day on Sunday cancelled if England got to the final she's part gutted, and part well pleased tonight.

Going out of the World Cup...I can take. Missing out on 25% off an AP10 for the office...they say time is a great healer, but I'm not so sure.
