    And by football, I mean, you know, the game you actually play by kicking a ball with your foot. (As opposed to the sport where it's illegal to kick the ball with your foot, unless you're one of 2 players in 3 extremely narrowly-defined instances.)

    Anyway, this is only the second World Cup I've paid attention to from the start, so I'm no expert...but it's been really entertaining. The US v. Portugal match didn't result in the most satisfying outcome, but it was a great game.

    Wondering if there are any other observations from more seasoned observers. Limey? Welsh? London? Abelardo? Anyone else?

    Shit, sorry mate. I've just stumbled on this. I've never come in here until this evening. And I just wandered in tonight for a breath of air and to avoid the wrist slashing taking place over in the Discussion Room.

    But ... football. Bring it on. Whatever you got. Even if this is a year out of date.

    Christ, neither. Anyone with any sense stays well away from those pair.

    I know you're not going to believe this ... Leicester City. Since 1978. Making this year pretty mental.

    It's been a hell of a run for them this season. Liverpool is my EPL team but you couldn't help but root for Leicester beating out all the money clubs.

    Jesus, looks like Leicester City are going to win the League. Spurs have fucked up against West Brom and we're three points away ...

    Unbelievable.
