Is there a particular stage of intoxicated where you get inspired to do assorted tasks but have the wherewithal to wait until after the wine is finished?

Well congrats to Team England for doing exactly what you were expected to do against Iran.

I am of two minds on the US facing Wales today. I wish this game wasn't first because if we lose then we have to go through the other games pretty dispirited. I would rather we play England and Iran first and get an expected W-L and then give everything we have against Wales.
But then of course is the other thought that if this is the most important game in the group for us then I suppose it is best we do it first fresh without possible injuries, cards, etc

If I have to guess I think we and Wales get a draw today and getting out of the group becomes all about goal differential. Unless Iran could get a draw against Wales too but I'm not sure I could bring myself to cheer for Iran lol (not a knock against the people of that country, many who have bravely taken the streets this year despite risk of death, but rather not wanting the regime to have any kind of propaganda victory opportunity)
Iran are NOT getting a draw against Wales. Not a chance.
How about a WIN?!

As long as the US doesn't fall on its face we should be through to the next stage!

My predictions / thoughts have been SHOCKING. TBH, Wales were shit, and as much as Iran were a bit 'naughty' in their shenanigans, they definitely deserved the win. At least you didn't call out my "if Costa Rica get a point this afternoon..." and promptly got hammered 7-0...

Personal wants - close win for England today (would prefer a one-goal margin), then the US to beat Iran to go through on GD (I do want the US to go through, but not at the expense of England wins :lol: ), and the Wales/England game to be a dead rubber.

What I expect - a win by more than one goal margin for England tonight, US to probably beat Iran, and Wales to earn a drawn against England. US still to go through, but it'll be a nervy end to the group stage.

Watch this go completely tits up. Don't ever let me gamble on matches.

Okay cool…I feel less weird now.

The English language is so fascinating lol…

Also, I watched Amy Jo Johnson’s IG video about Jason David Frank and I started bawling like a baby.
I'm avoiding that one. I don't as depressed enough when I saw he was dead.

We will take a draw! That was a fun game for being 0-0. On the bright side for you the Wales game will be more exciting now 😉

Argh, England were terrible. Poor pressing, terrible distribution and a complete lack of movement off the ball when we did manage to win possession.

Saka and Sterling were passengers for too long.

Complaints aside, I was very impressed by the US team. Much more organised than against Wales, with the workrate off the ball and closing of the lines very good.

Cable, you must be pleasantly surprised as well as very frustrated in some ways, as the US were by far the better team, and if a little more clinical in the final third, should have beaten us. Though you should be hopeful of getting through - if you play as well as you did tonight, you should beat Iran, though obviously my assertions so far have been a bit... off.

I’m so annoyed at 0-0 draw. My understanding was that the loser of the match was punished with full custody of James Corden.

The Corden rip off of Gervais' routine was brilliant in its shamelessness.

I mean, I'm not a massive Ricky Gervais fan (though Afterlife was fantastic) but how did Corden think he'd get away with it?

I always appreciate when the US and other countries make a deal that "Loser gets X" because it goes to show how much we hate everyone. Black Twitter was going on about how loser would have to keep rapper 21 Savage. Every time Canada and the US play it's for custody of Justin Bieber.
