    Nice to see Neymar thanking god after the penalty

    Hard to imagine that God played a role in awarding a dodgy decision to the home team but he/she/it apparently works in mysterious ways

    That pen didn't deserve to be called, but that kind of call does happen in sport. Overall, the Brazilians have played better, which will hurt more for Cro

    Oh gawd it must be the World Cup again, people who don't care about football for 4 years screaming about hellish corruption, and how all the rules need to be changed.

    I'll be glad when you all go away again in 4 weeks, no offence, like.

    Well mainly because Slaven Bilic got a little overly lippy and said they were just a better team than England. They weren't; we had Steve McClaren as manager was all. Rarely been happier than when we smashed them twice in the 2010 qualifiers.

    TBF to that decision, it's never a foul on the 'keeper, but they're always given a foul in every pro-game I watch.

    C'mon Croatia, deserve a point here.

    Nah, I quite enjoy taking the piss of the dears of 'em really.

    Actually was thinking of starting a "verbals" thread, like the "Under the Lid" one in the Ashes, but then I realised I CBF.
