    I'd don't usually go mad for the oldies headliners (the 5 minutes I watched of The Who before bailing for FlyLo was abysmal) but I'd make an exception for Macca personally. Man's got tunes.

    I'm pissing during Hey Jude tho.

    I think you overestimate Belgium. An average (but spirited) wales beat them in the Euros and it wasn’t a fluke. They are a team of individuals with a manager who doesn’t do tactics. I see England beating them. However I see Belgium more likely to win the world cup than England.

    To be fair I don't rate Belgium that much; I just don't trust England to beat anyone who isn't terrible in a World Cup. Same as I expect us to lose to Colombia if we play the in the RO16 despite them not being amazing.

    Hopefully this team can prove me wrong in the way that a lot of people seem to think they'll be able to.

    As if England are ever going to be in a situation where they can decide if they want to finish top or second in the group. You'll all get what you're given you greedy bastards 

    To be fair we certainly won't be in that position. But it's entirely possible we go into our final group game with both us and Belgium on 6 points. If the path of progression from there looks better for the team finishing in 2nd place it'll be strange. I'd expect us to lose to Belgium in any case, of course; but I'd also be happy to lose if that was the situation.


  4. So, finish 2nd in the group now and our quarter final opponent looks more likely to be a Mexico/Switzerland/Serbia than Germany.

    Will be weird going into our final group stage game against Belgium with the loser having the better run to the semis, if it's still looking that way (winner of the group would play Brazil/Germany in the quarters).

    On the guardian podcast they said Debuchy has been great this season.

    Yeah by all accounts he has been. Not long ago there were reports that France were considering withdrawing Sidibe from the squad due to his injury and I saw a lot of responses hoping they'd call up Depuchy to replace him.

    There's not many players at the whole tournament that would make that France 98-00 team. 

    France's full backs were atrocious today. Mendy and Sidibe cant get fit quick enough if you are the french.

    Its the one area where I actually feel England have the depth over the likes of France. 

    Sidibe has been poor recently. Pavard has been performing better at RB and there were calls for him to start regardless of Sidibe's fitness, despite him not even being a RB.

    I Didn't think anyone on site didn't know it was the killers :) 

    No, but they still wouldn't ever put The Killers on as an announced band in the John Peel tent. They wouldn't accept it, for a start, and Noel probably wouldn't either.

    no worse than the killers would it ? they would just shut the field again 

    No probably not but they also wouldn't put The Killers in the JP for an announced set.

    Nah come on. I'm not president of the Noel Gallagher fan club (cos I'm vice president) but the man is an absolute unit and even his latest, apparently commercially disappointing album gets to no. 1 and sells copies quicker than Foo Fighters, Kasabian, Muse, etc. so to say he's as big as a third down act or the classic ropey sub choice is daft. And this is a guy who, by rights, should barely be selling albums at all because people generally go to his gigs to hear old songs by his old band.

    Well yeah my point was that he's not gonna be playing a slot lower than that (like JP headline), and listing the smallest acts who've played those slots is just proof of that. I'm not saying he's not as big as other subs or anything.


  9. Noel Gallagher in the JP would be ridiculous. Depending on who he was up against he could draw ridiculous amounts of people to the stage.

    I imagine he'd be 2nd or 3rd down Pyramid if he played. Despite his stock falling he's still as big as acts who've played those slots recently - The National, Beck, Weller as subs; several third down acts.

    Oh right. All day I was expecting you to kick off about Rage taking the lead - didn't know you liked them.

    And yeah I remember thinking I'd try cut down on posting when I hit 10k or something.

    Yeah I loved Rage when I constantly listened to stuff like Tool, RATM, Pearl Jam and Nirvana, but Arctic Monkeys have probs been gradually creeping up since I've been enjoying heavier music less and less. I was gonna say it's the first difficult decision of the game before I realised I actually struggled to pick The White Stripes over Muse :lol:
