At home, uninterrupted, big screen, big sound and a drinks fridge with plenty of IPA, cooled not chilled. :thup:

What a selfish Herbert. Him, I mean, not you. Or, more likely, his bridezilla. As if anyone’s going to be listening to their bloody speeches anyway. All the blokes will be looking for an out at 2:50.

Kings Stores at Liv St for me.

For the fella watching at Brentwood, keep your wits about you. I’ve watched tournament games there for nearly twenty years but for some reason I felt a different vibe up there this year. Watched the Tunisia and Colombia games up there and there were aggy people everywhere. Of particularly annoyance were large groups of lads who seemed to be drinking lager but were picking up half full two pint glasses of cider and black and priming to throw them at every set piece. Seemed to be looking to piss people off.

I’d suggest trying The Swan and avoiding O’Neill’s & The Merchant

At home.

I won't miss a kick and won't have someone in my ear stating the bleeding obvious while trying to get the barmaid's attention.

Sounds like excellent advice there, James.

At home it’s 11:30pm ko here

1998-2010 when younger was all about the pubs 2014 watched at home

But if we got to the final I’m facing the prospect of watching it on my own at home as again a 00:30am ko
Plus not a sniff of World Cup fever here in Darwin don’t think they know it’s on

Working til 1pm. Get in, do some ironing and run the hoover around,

Watching it alone indoors. Other than Belgium, its how i've watched the other games. Weirdly, I prefer it like that. :thup:

Another who will be taking sneaky peaks at their phone during the game - it’s my daughter’s 18th and we are having a bit of a family do. In some ways, I’m quite looking forward to that - if we lose, my afternoon won’t have been spoiled and if we win, I’ll have the semi-final to look forward to. To be honest, I enjoy the excitement of the build up to the game more than the game sometimes and have enjoyed all of the ‘it’s coming home’ stuff ont’ tinterweb over the past few days. Will record it and watch if we win, naturally!!

At home. I cant stand watching football in pubs with a load of biased idiots who know **** all about football and screeming women who get all over excited whenever England venture into the the oppo's half and then let out shreeks when the other team cross the half way line and why do they let out a scream when the other team takes a shot at our goal?

Little bar in a little village in rural, rustic northern Portugal. Haven't had to pay for a drink all day.
