    Is 0-0 at half time "ruthlessly efficient"?!

    It's starting to look like the Argentina match

    Yeh...I regret saying that. Lol. This world cup is nothing but surprises.

    Costa Rica remind me of Rorschach in Watchmen with the prison fight scene where he shouts "You guys are mistaken. I'm not locked in here with you....you're all locked in here with me."

    Edit

    you know what, I said to the mrs (and she was surprised at me saying this)...all bets are off. I am not making another bet this world cup. She was shocked considering how well I've done over the last 5 major international competitions.

    What’s the difference between a tea bag and England?

    A tea bag stays in the cup longer.

    Looking at this game, England are just poor. Sturridge is on his own too much. This 4-3-3 is not great, as many of the players are slipping so its more of a 4-5-1. England could run a 4-4-4 (yes, with the 2 extra players), and still look awful.

    It doesn't make England look quite so bad when both Spain and Italy fail to get out of the knock out stage

    Yeah, it's just the way they play that makes them look bad though

    Our group sucked, the England game was boring and like watching paint dry whilst the Italy game was plagued by dodgy referees and Suarez chowing down on the opposition, literally. The little savage has until 9pm our time to submit evidence to FIFA for yet another biting incident, knew he would do it again!

    Greece on the other hand, what a 90th minute reprieve! You'd think they won the tournament with their celebrations and the sheer weight that must have been on that penalty taker's shoulders. The goalie was gutted!

    Some guy from norway won a load of money at 175-1 for Suarez to bite someone at the World cup
