    At the 1998 WC I watched England 2 - 0 Colombia with a couple of hundred others in the bar at The Metropole Hotel, on a sunny Friday evening. A rarity - a good England performance and win in a WC finals.

      I was in hospital for most of Euro 2012. It was great, I watched every game while being waited on by pretty nurses.

      Plus, in a couple of days I get transferred to Kings where I'll have an isolation room with a big T.V.

      I will try to get in as many as possible. Would like to think its karma if Russia lost to Saudia Arabia, and then failed to get out of the group.

      Will watch as much as possible, but there seem to be a lot of afternoon matches so will have to record them. I wonder if you record one if you can Series Link all the rest on that channel.

      Also I think it is 24h de Le Mans this weekend, which is probably on ESPN or something so will have to watch that.

      I will certainly watch the BIG ones and some of the odd little teams, especially if they have opposing religions and recent wars etc for a bit of spice. What channels are they being shown on, are they over all channels and who has the daily round up. Must get to some organising.........

      I see the giant screen is back on Brighton beach, albeit a different company doing it this time. LOADS of World Cup games being shown, £5 for a day pass or £3 for a half day / evening jobbie.

      I might mince along there for a couple of games of a weekend if the weathers decent (NOT for an England game, mind). The one drawback being its probably north of five quid for a plastic pint of warm flat pissy lager.

      Would the England games be too packed there, or would it be the presence of idiots?
