I dont normally encourage gambling but if you have any loose change in your skybet accounts i suggest you strongly consider a small bet here. He is an UNBELIEVABLE 66/1 shot with them for Player of the Tournament.

Of course I can Steve. The fact is that they are pointless now.....and they have always been pointless. There was no more excitement 24 years ago when England were in it than there will be this coming Saturday. If someone had asked me before the world cup then if I'd have been up for watching England play off for 3rd place I'd have said yes but, having been through it as a viewer and a supporter I have to say it's a complete waste of time and should be scrapped.
The players obviously didn't care and their body language said they would rather have been somewhere else. In their minds, they should have been playing to be champions of the world and, instead, were kicking a ball about in a game that would become meaningless as soon as the final whistle blew with the possible exception of becoming an answer to a quiz question one day. "Who came third in the world cup in ........?"
The answer of course being "Who gives a fuck"
I admit that I'm the worst world cup punter on here.
Punter politely pointed out my lack of knowledge regarding Kroos , who I took more interest last night .Kroos and Khedira dominated the midfield in the first half.
I will not post my thoughts on tonight's match.
p,s. I can't get smilies but I want a big red faced one
this is tough!
Nonsense traeth, your IKTS predictions suggest otherwise, you're going well there. We all have a wrong call, i make several. It wont stop me from posting them up though. Good luck tonight Not sure why you cant get smilies??
Small stakes but i'm going for a 3-2, 2-3, 3-3 tonight.
I'm back on the bike and backing Argentina tonight.
In the IKTS I had a lucky week during the last 16 , I had my insurance token on last night's match , don't think many would have the correct score [ still no smilies?]
good luck with your score bets
Also laid Messi to score on Saturday, only to pooh my pants on 90 minutes when he had a one on one with the keeper. This is one bet i'll be happy to lose if he scores and the Argies go through
Bet365's 6/5 'to qualify' offers, so I'm going with that.
Unbelievable scoreline and there was me going on about the under's beforehand lol.
All my eggs are in the Argentina basket at the moment because I didn't know who to cover or what to do so I'm hoping they get through v the dutch tonight and then i'll be able to cover my bets :hope
After the first 3 or 4 days I thought I'd make enough to retire as it was going to be a piece of piss but unfortunately that went tits up when Costa Rica pumped Uruguay and most of my ante post bets screwed up. I also didn't rate the dutch (as previously mentioned on here) - Portugal were another massive loss for me. Decent bet on Switzerland, Chile and Portugal all to qualify from their groups.
Good idea, that's what Chris Froome did. What could possibly go wrong.
Germany will thrash whoever wins this.
I had Argentina down to win the world cup before the event started but having watched the two semis it's hard not to see Germany winning, The Argentina I fancied had Messi firing on all cylinders but once again he just hasn't turned up, he'll need to turn up on Sunday tthough if Argentina are to stand any chance.
I thought Mascerano tonight was immense, he was the difference between the two sides; had it not been for him the Dutch would be safely in the final.
Rojo had a good game tonight as well as Macherano was. The germans have looked solid and apart from Demichelis having a couple of wee brain farts I thought the argies were the better team tonight although they didnt create many great chances. Palacio should have done better with his chance when he tried to flick the header over the keeper.
Interesting why Van Gaal didn't sub the keeper tonight considering he'd never saved a pen in a match before though.
Good luck Kegs
