My wife was the same, TS! She came home just after the final whistle and wondered why I was too choked up to speak :oops:

Goodness only knows what I'll be like if we actually win! :D

Sunday, eh? Bring it on! ;)?

Ditto :cry: <:)>

Still. England made the final, played well enough to take it to penalties and, hopefully, can build on the experience next year.

I live in Scotland and I have a feeling that I'm gonna take some ribbing at work today (w)

Very disappointed about the racial abuse the three young men received on social media. I think they need to change the status of social media providers from platforms to publishers then they are not able to shirk responsibility in the eyes of the law

But yes they should all be very proud.

Hope you don't get too much of a ribbing in work Mark

Then again it’s nice to hear Pavarotti’s Nessun Dorma, rather than Atomic Kitten’s Whole Again :?

I didn't know about their football version, Pickles! I just looked it up on YouTube :shock:

I prefer Pavarotti too ;)?

Well done, Steve (::) (::) (::)

I admit, I felt a little bit sorry for Rafa, last night, but that's a great result for the Reds :D

Looks like a three-horse race for the title, doesn't it? I think City are going to fall away a bit due to injuries. Chelsea will be hard to beat, but Liverpool are playing so well, and scoring so much, it's impossible not to think they might pip them to the post.

YNWA ;)?

Agree re Rafa and I think he made a mistake going to Everton.
Naturally I love your analysis 😁

Phew! What an incredible 3 points for LFC.
Well done Wolves: you defended brilliantly and I wouldn’t have argued if you’d got a point.
