Where to see the big game?

My son is going down to the pub to watch it. He says the atmosphere is better there than at home. I have been invited to a barbecue party to watch on a specially arranged big screen telly. I wonder what the picture will be like outside in this bright sunshine. Anyway as someone who does not like football I have said no thanks. So assuming you are a football fan where will you watch the game?

if i were a fan i would watch indoors, the glare of the sun will spoil the picture unless you put a canopy found the screen to shade it.

The big game ocurred at Wimbledon during the week not today. Sorry you won't get any Englishman with that heart and determination today.

On the radio as I have to go out this afternoon. After the first two that I watched I can't bring myself to up the enthusiasm much as the opposition between now and the final will require a massive improvement in attitude and ability, much more than the last win game.

In the meantime I'm marinating a nice Panama hat just in case...

What rubbish.

I shall watch the game at home - doors to the garden open, a chair by the pond,in my favourite spot by a great swathe of lavender, so I can relax at half time and watch the damsel flies flitting over the water lilies.

The game isn't until later this afternoon.

I'm watching it at home. Hope it's as entertaining as the two matches yesterday. I never bother with all the build-up/expert predictions bits.

Looking forward to tonight's Argentina v Mexico game, too, whatever the result of this afternoon's game happens to be.

I'll see the football in the news bulletins when 90 minutes is condensed down into a few minutes which is bearable for this non-footie fan - anyway it clashes with 'Deal Or No Deal' on C4 at 4.40pm!

P.S.Its exceptionally quiet here in Spalding. Are Poland in the World Cup and playing as well and England today?
