    They would have played until midnight to ensure that Germany got in.

    Not vat all Kevie, high time we had something topical to discuss round here! Pod was fine an hour after the game finished - the barman told me there was a bit of triumphalism (from otherwise anonymous Albanians) that was close to the line, but nothing they were uncomfortable with. The stuff you've been told about Montenegrins and Albanians is stereotyping. My experience is that one ie as bad as the other. They should both grow up. The Kosovo-Albania thing I cannot work out even after ten years in the region. Who is Kosovar? Who is Albanian? Look at the Swiss team last night? Xxacha? Behrami? Shaquiri? These guys are Albanian or Kosovar (Behrani) but not a chance they will ever give up the Swiss passport that they have legitimately qualified for. (as professional; footballers).

    I watched the game safely at home in my apartment in Podgorica, having seen what was coming as folk gathered to watch the Serbia game (I'd watched the Iceland game in town earleir). As I'm writing this I believe something is kicking off in town. Hopefully nothing nasty though. It's only a game of football. Oh fuck....... it's the Western Balkans!!

    Four aspirations that I have for what has been a decent tournament to date, apart from the obvious ABE:: 1) That Alexsandr Kolarov absolutely messes the cunt that is Neymar in the final group game 2) That the cunt that is Raheem Sterling continues to be shown up for the anonymous charlatan that he is 3) That the cunt called Diego Costa gets a red card while his adopted international side gets sent back home after the next game 4) That Cristiano Ronaldo, who is generally a cunt, stops digging Portugal out of the losers trenches with his outstanding performances

    Hell fire - So far it's certainly been the WC for penalties, corners, free kicks, own goals and jammy bastard goals.

    We were talking about exactly this tonight in my group - Shearer or Kane? I think Kane. Shearer had a decent supply coming at him from Gazza, Beckham, McManaman et al. Kane has absolutely fuck all to work with from that midfield. No disrespect intended to Shearer, but Harry Kane is a better striker working with scraps.

    I thought in the subsequent 60 + 4 minutes they were rotten and clueless. They are not the worst team in the tournament by any means, but keep in mind their two goals tonight were from an ace striker off two poorly defended corners. They created nothing.........absolutely nothing ............from open play tonight.

    Yep - can't be arsed looking, but how many of those goals have been down to Harry Kane (Hampden and tonight apart obviously)?

    Switched over from BBC to Sky International to avoid Lineker et al. And the otherwise estimable Anna Jones hits us with ' England kick off their World Cup campaign in style.' Delusional nonsense. Without Harry Kane they are fucked.

    Baws - what a daft corner to have given away in the first place.

    Like I said the other night, I've no issue with refs giving seven or eight penalties a game for blatant fouls like the Kane incident, but spare us the trash decisions like the Griezmann one for minimal contact. Walker was an absolute fud though - that was a penalty every day of the week.
