I don't think my suspension of disbelief can stretch to the possibility of seeing England in the final of anything in my lifetime.

We barely manage to make the Final of Britain's Got Talent, so quite how we're going to make a FIFA World Cup Final, I have no idea.

Got my waistcoat and Croatia bet on for good luck. :p

I think England will lose, and we're still not that good. But we've done enough to make me proud of our performances. Hoping to enjoy the game, and if we do out please don't be controversial or on penalties.

Question: For the 'fellow' (I don't consider myself British) Brits here, who's coverage have you preferred more: BBC or ITV? I feel like BBC coverage (mainly the commentary) has been more snobbish, then again, ITV is guilty of its fair share of that too. One area that ITV trumps BBC in is the introduction... the ITV into is simply amazing. It helps add to the whole feeling of the thing.

It's beginning soon. See y'all on the other side. Here's to hoping this will prove one more step towards it coming home. :D

If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long.

I swear Sweden has been the old tram so far that hasn't approached England with fouls? God damn it, I hope the anger management shrinks see some of these Croatian players.

Also: good save by Pickford just now.
