Zut alors! Sacre bleeding bleu. Vichy. Cheese munching surrender monkeys. Etc.

Parlez vous Franglais?

But, agreed.

I owe you an apology.

Nah, not really.

Before my edit to my initial comment, I also gave a reason why I thought* that Argentina would beat France in the final to win the WC (*: from a marketing perspective). My initial comment was before the France-England match.

It's high time for a WC winner that isn't from my list on page 19. For a bit of variation.

Two words I never, ever thought in all my life I would utter.....and I will deny ever doing so, but;
Allez France


So now we have an almost surreal moment where you Mr. 'anyone but Argentina' have to cheer on the French!
An Englishman cheering on France! Oh this is sweet.
Im already grinning from ear to ear.
Ive got a couple of days to get some jokes together, coz this is comedy gold. It would be similar to me cheering on England against someone.

🤣🤣
I know....after serious reconsideration and no small amount of self-torture I have to rescind that.
I just can't bring myself to say it with any serious conviction or degree of honesty.

I am going to go into complete isolation the whole of Sunday and possibly Monday too in an attempt to escape from my worst possible nightmare scenario.

Ok, so just to be clear, who are you cheering for on Sunday?

I think I might continue watching 1899 on Netflix instead.

That's doing my head in trying to work out what the Hell is going on but I fear that if I watch the game my head may explode.

Not that I'm a bad sport or anything, you understand.

A plague on both their houses.

Is there any Rugby on?

Live Tiddlywinks from Cleethorpes?

No-one mate.
0-0 bore draw....then a mass melee and 6 players from each side get sent off and the game gets abandoned.

However, I think France are the better side - they are a very good side if I'm being honest - but Argentina have something about them.
Too close to call.

It has the makings of a good game of football.

Argentina gonna kick French behinds and you know it. You just fear it.
Argentina all the way. Messi playing the game of his life.

Honestly....I don't care.

I do think Mbappe is the best player in the world at present and France have no obvious weaknesses.
But Argentina will be hard to break down, are incredibly motivated....and of course Messi is still more than capable of moments of 'greatness'.

Looking at it from a purely footballing point of view it has the makings of a great game of football....I've got to be honest though and admit I'd struggle to watch it and appreciate it purely for the football alone.

Who knows, I may cave in and try to watch it tomorrow?

Would ya g'way outta dat. Of course you're gonna watch it, c'mon now.

You're right, it could well be a great game. It sure has all the makings for it.
Im hoping Messi has the game of his life and they win it. It would put to bed the who's the greatest of all time. Both Pele and Maradona have won it. Messi has to win it to be in that group.

I've just seen the headline "Falklands costs English referee World Cup Final".

I would have thought that an Englishman could have been trusted to be equally hostile to both countries.

P.S.
