Cmon boys.

Last World Cup me & my mates did a sweepstake.

They did the draw (I was at an Arcade Fire gig with my mum, obv) and a got Argentina & Germany.

Would happily take another ‘no lose’ final.

Dear Lawro.

It’s been a good run nevertheless :sunglasses:

Benny from ABBA, Britt Ekland. Bjorn Borg, Swedish Chef bloke from The Muppets. Ingmar Bergman, and Ingrid. Other Swedish people I’m too dumb to remember.

But by cripes you’ll feel the full force of England on Saturday!! A polite force, and one willing to queue up


To score goals against you

Hypocrite is the word used…

Closed the poll because clearly Lawro is an idiot

Can we do one on Hoddle next?

A certain Piers Morgan was editor at the time. Wonder what happened to him?
