  2. There’s a record store in England that I buy music from sometimes (Burning Shed), and they have a habit of putting little promotional items along with the items they ship - this is what they sent in my most recent order: I never expected to receive a card with Kate Bush, Pink Floyd, Miles Davis, David Bowie, King Crimson, and Steven Wilson (the founder of Burning Shed - also a musician/remixer extraordinaire and formerly of the excellent band Porcupine Tree) all in masks - now that's topical. 👍

  6. I don't want to give attention to the racist morons who've been sending horrible words to our players. But I would like to highlight how the community in Manchester have responded to the defacing of a mural of Marcus Rashford. Not only was the abusive graffiti covered up as soon as it was found, but through the day, local people have been covering the covering fabric with hearts, England flags and supportive messages for Rashford and his team-mates. Which says a lot. Whoever put the graffiti there snuck along in the dark, but in the day-time, lots of people have been showing that they wil

  7. What a tournament it’s been 🤯 Congratulations to Italy and commiserations England. And England you should be proud of your team what an amazing performance to reach the final ! What a time we live in too, when we can marvel at Ronaldo, Modric, Kane, Mbappé and Chiesa all playing at the same tournament. And I haven’t even mentioned amazing players in the Copa America ! Lets all meet again next year for the World Cup in Qatar for the beautiful game..

  13. I bought the Inhaler album at lunchtime More importantly, I stopped a small child from potentially getting run over As I got off the bus in the town centre, there was a lady waiting to cross the road with a 3-4 year old child. The road is a busy one, and there's a pathway in the middle so you only have to cross one lane at a time. I crossed to the middle, with the lady and her daughter (or possibly granddaughter) behind me. I stopped, but the little girl didn't. She kept on walking, and I had to put my arm out to stop her from walking into the road. I pointed out to her that there

  15. I'm glad to read that people here are proud of the players on England's squad - that's the reaction that they deserve. (And certainly better than the pre-game storming of the stadium: https://global.espn.com/football/uefa-european-championship/story/4430638/euro-2020-final-fans-try-to-storm-wembley-before-italy-vs-england ) England has come so far since 2016 (doesn't the game with Iceland seem like another lifetime ago?) - they finished 4th in the last World Cup, they finished 3rd in the most recent UEFA Nations League, and now they have finished runners-up in the next most difficul

  23. Was really hoping England could cheer me up this evening after Roger sadly lost at Wimbledon. However, I didn't have any expectations whatsoever about which team would win, and it didn't become any clearer as the match went on. The last 15 minutes were *agonising*. I was absolutely convinced Denmark were going to equalise and we were going to lose on penalties. My first experience of watching football was Euro '96 and that fateful semifinal is forever burnt into my brain - watching excitedly in my bedroom as we were just about to reach the final we'd been promised, when it suddenly went h

  24. …and congratulations to England! That was a spectacular game! It’s always a bit of a shame when a penalty decision factors into the winning margin. It was one of those decisions where someone was going to be happy and someone was going to feel aggrieved. If the referee had not called a penalty in that situation, VAR wouldn’t have overturned that decision either. Great save on Kane’s penalty kick by Schmeichel - he was one of Denmark’s best players today and in the whole tournament. I know that Leicester City in the Premier League are happy to have him as a keeper. All credit to Kane

  26. …and Italy get to the Final with the help of a Brazilian (Jorginho)! Poor Morata - people wanting to berate him for his underwhelming penalty attempt will have to remember that there would have been no extra time without his game-tying goal after coming in as a sub in the 2nd half. Still, think how far Italy has come. They failed to qualify for the last World Cup in 2018. After that, they have done nothing but win. Very impressive! It should a very good final between Italy and the survivor of England/Denmark. By the way, is there a 3rd-place game this time around? I have se

  29. If anyone thinks they will be going through soccer/football withdrawal after this coming weekend, you don't need to! There are 3 more tournaments to watch before the Premier League starts up again: 1) the CONCACAF Gold Cup 2) the Olympics 3) the CONCACAF Champions League semifinals (and final) I just created a thread for all three events to be commented on: https://zootopia.u2.com/forums/topic/42361-concacaf-gold-cup-and-more/ But, until then, first things first! Good luck to Spain, Italy, England, and Denmark in the Euros - and to Brazil, Peru, Arge

Then we got another in the mountain biking (our first ever medal in that event). And we have a second taekwondo finalist later - will it be gold or silver?

  35. This is a thread for those who think they will be going through football/soccer withdrawal after this weekend. Guess what? You won't be! The Euros and Copa America end this weekend...BUT, the Gold Cup, the Olympics, and even the CONCACAF Champions League semifinals and finals are happening now and over the next month! (After all those...the Premiere League is back in action! 😎) After Team USA's success in the inaugural CONCACAF Nations League final, I'll be curious to see if they can replicate that success in the Gold Cup. Tragically, our Men's team didn't qualify for the Olympics; h

  36. I wasn't able to get to a record shop at the weekend to try and find it, but I've discovered this morning that the Foo Fighters/Dee Gees album "Hail Satin" is available on streaming services And it's very good. I shall keep looking when I'm able to get out to record shops and see if I can eventually pick it up somewhere, but at least I can still dance around to it at home

  37. They accidentally it seems offered the first 3 tracks for about 24 hours or less perhaps. So I Will Follow, The Electric Co and Out Of Control. They then replaced them for Red Flag Day, Angel Of Harlem and Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses. Then they added another 3, The Electric Co,All Because Of You and Stuck In A Moment. As The Electric co had already briefly been made available that was a total of 8 different songs. That’s what I and many others have downloaded but I’m guessing you don’t have access to I Will Follow and Out Of Control because you missed the boat so to speak and they are no

  38. Well, Group D has had the most entertaining games of this tournament, and one of the games today was the very best of the tournament so far! First, the scores of the 2nd games in Group D: Grenada 0-4 Qatar Panama 2-3 Honduras So, the group now looks like this: Group D Honduras (6 pts./+5 GD) Qatar (4 pts./+4 GD) Panama (1 pt./-1 GD) Grenada (0 pts./-8 GD) Honduras has now clinched a berth in the quarterfinals, and Grenada will be watching the quarterfinals on TV (if they want to, that is). However, we learned a few things about this gr

  39. England and penalties just don't go together Gareth Southgate has been through it himself and knows exactly how Saka (and Rashford and Sancho) will be feeling, so hopefully he'll be able to help them cope with it. Credit to Italy, they had a great tournament overall and are worthy winners. Although I was *not* happy with Chiellini's foul on Saka - that could have been a red card. But overall, they were the better team. Although England can be confident looking forward to the World Cup next year. We've done well, had a good run and hopefully that bodes well for the future.

  41. Sssshhhhh, don't jinx it!!! Seriously, I'm scared to even play "Three Lions" on Spotify in case that somehow does something to the universe and messes things up Although weirdly enough, playing "Vindaloo" is fine. Maybe because that was made for a World Cup and not a Euros? I don't know The first time in most of our lifetimes that England have made a tournament final... I should be celebrating, but I feel nervous. As if somehow, we're doing *too* well and it's all going to go wrong at the last moment. Maybe that's exactly because I'm not used to seeing us do this well and it feel
