    Have to Count - the new and improved one :P

    43, 747 - Getting us a bit closer with some night-time counting.

    The World Cup Thread

    People power! Here in the UK every World Cup *has* to be on free-to-air TV by law, even if England don't qualify. There are certain sporting events that are protected and cannot go to pay TV (Wimbledon tennis is another one). I think people are also realising that, while they may get more money from pay TV companies, it reduces audience figures - our cricket coverage went over to Sky after the 2005 Ashes and has been highlights-only for years, but they've realised that participation and interest are dwindling because hardly anyone can afford to pay for sports channels to watch it. Cricket will be coming back to free-to-air live coverage in the next year or two as a result.

    Me neither, but well done to Japan. It has been good to see the so-called "smaller" nations doing well so far.

    43, 738 - Aww, you and @pollyanna are so nice I brought more books home today - found 2 in a charity shop and borrowed 5 from 2 libraries I'd not been to before The really spooky part is that we travelled past a castle that's featured in the book I'm reading at the moment - and saw a street named after the main character's family (who did actually exist).

    The midges stole the show this evening And yes, well done to Mexico and Iceland. And Switzerland too. I'm excited to see Colombia's match tomorrow - they were a highlight of the 2014 tournament for me, so it'll be interesting to see how they do this time round.

    I still don't think that was a penalty for France. Australia should have had at least a draw.

    43, 719 - No problem I do my best to keep the counting in order. Adding one more after a long day of football matches. My World Cup wallchart is filling up nicely.

    Of course upsets can happen - be positive I would love to see Australia do well in football. After all, they've already conquered most other sports!

    Spain v Portugal was amazing... best match of the tournament so far and a brilliant goal by Nacho. And Ronaldo just.... being Ronaldo. Clearly being fined 14m euro doesn't bother him in the slightest. It's probably pocket money to him. Tomorrow's matches look like fun too - and I *love* that Twitter now has a #Vikingclap emoji for Iceland

    Don't worry, we'll try not to post spoilers Let's just hope Ronaldo remembers he is *not* the referee. It really annoys me when he starts throwing tantrums because he didn't get a free-kick for someone *daring* to breathe near him. He's a great player, but his arrogance is very off-putting.
