I much preferred the 3-2 game earlier.
Saying that, we are doing better then I expected
@ Tatty - I think we can easily beat the Italians, nothing to fear IMHO. That said, I hope it's a good, flowing match with plenty of action.
@Millenium - The Sweden match was awesome, made all the more sweeter because Zlatan had a go at Joe Hart after the swedes went 2-1 up.
just bought this
England is going down against Italy. Not that I am anti English or something, but they always choke when it comes to knockout stages and I don't want to be disappointed again.
Englands problem is nobody plays like they do for their clubs, everybody plays predicable in their passing and movement.
Id be more worried about the Italians than the Spanish. Italy have strong players and when in possession they play neat accurate football. You need to play a wide out ball against Italy as they dont have any wingers, instead Italy play a lot of holding and box to box central midfielders. Walcott will struggle against the stronger Italian players and like i said in my other post the other wingers have been guff. That's if Italy bring their game, they might not "turn up" they have been known to.
I still cant believe the Czechs and Greece managed to qualify from their group.
Hasn't been that great a tournament, beats the 2010 World Cup tho lol.
Unrelated to current conversation but who has the iyama monitor with the scratch on it?
Care to get in touch? : ]
It looks like I have committed to buying a £400 monitor and a £450 TV this weekend lol! Coupled with my recent £255 sub purchase I will be WELL into my overdraft this month hahah!!
anyway they are both worth it (and second hand). Don't need them but w/e
For those of you who have been thinking of getting a mechanical keyboard, but put off by the cost, this might be of interest:
Couple of caveats:
MX Blue only (but genuine)
US layout only (could be fixed)
But the price is amazing, around £20 delivered each. I bought two (one for work) and messaged him directly for £2 off the postage. Not bad!
I think they may go pretty quick. Good luck....
Very tempted, but my G11 still works so I am not going to replace it just yet.
too low feedback (as a seller and buyer) for my liking - Id avoid, but for £20 i suppose its worth the gamble for some
keyboard is non-usb, has no LEDs, no media keys and overall build quality is possibly suspect.
Most people can live without those
im going to pick up something like that soon
Not me, Its the difference between driving an old broken down gypsy banger and an F22 lightning
I agree that lack of USB is a drawback. Everything else I can happily overlook - and the reviews out there are really surprisingly good.
not worried about lack of feedback since I paid by paypal CC.
No it's not, it's the difference between driving a 1960's E Type Jag and a 2010 Jauguar XF, the XF is great with its pretty toys but when it comes to real substance there is only one winner!
Edit: getting back to things of real importance..... it's the "big" game in a few minutes.... my prediction..... England 0 - 2 Italy
I hope not! I got a free £10 bet on England - stand to win £18 Adds some interest
Off to the local walkabout to watch it soon though. Kickoff is apparently 8:30pm btw (correct me if I'm wrong)...
Its around £20, Freedoms keyboard is a Corsair which has more features but is also much more expensive. LOOKS a hell of a lot like a Unicomp Customiser Keyboard (case) except with Cherry MX Blues instead of the buckling spring switches. IMO £20 for a pure typing board (id use it as a typing board not a gaming board) it looks nice like it would do a good job.
As an addendum, PS/2 is superior because you get full n/key rollover; my Zowie came with a USB to PS/2 converter for n/key rollover and you can buy for £1 on ebay one that takes PS/2 and makes it USB anyway if you only have USB ports.
@Millennium - When yours comes in let us know what the build quality is like, im very tempted to pick one up at that price to use on another pc.
After a bit of googling seems like the seller is a bit dodgy and the boards are not that great in condition. See i thought it was NEW but seems like the seller sends really badly used keyboards.
I thought it was a bit too good to be true.
Good Lord this game of football is boring.
Someone score soon, please. I'm almost past caring which team wins.
Its extra time and I have had several Brandy's so boring it aint!
Whoever wins the game will probably get destroyed by Germany if they play like this. Its looking more like penalties
Classic England exit
Nae luck England, now to see if Italy can withstand the Jerries.
England looked good for about 10 mins in the first half. Pretty rubbish for the other 110 mins.
They should be happy they don't get to be completely humiliated by Germany.
Bring on the next World Cup.
