No gifts but I am thinking of doling out ‘hardship loans’ for the festive season. Exeweb’s own ‘Tiny Tim’ is welcome to apply. 😁
Thanks but no thanks.
In the extremely unlikely event that I should find myself in need of financial assistance I would prefer to use a properly FCA accredited lender rather than Exeweb's answer to Mr Gradgrind.
Comfortably yours

Just got home and switched on the Qatar/Senegal game, Looking at the empty seats it seems the Qatari public have already fallen out of love with the WC after just the second game, I know they're not a good team but normally a host nation will fill a stadium.

Wales played off the park by the Iranians and thus putting our tonking of them into perspective I thought.
Keane and Souness couldn’t wait to diminish the England performance by saying Iran were an awful team.
I would have Iran as favourites to qualify with England to the next round.

As did Robbie Savage by saying the other day on his 606 show "It's only Iran" 😀

Should make the USA v Iran decider fairly spicy though. (Assuming we get at least a point of the U.S.of.A. this evening)
I would imagine GI Jigsy is getting his combat gear and MAGA hat out already.

Didn't Iran win against the "Great Satan" US in '98?
Aye. But on that again it was a game of no real consequence (football-wise) for either side - more like two bald men arguing over a comb.
This time qualification through the group stages could be at stake.

Love it when the hosts get knocked out. Which is looking probable now.

And looks like the welshers may well be following them. Which is laughable after the toe curling commentary of the USA game. You'd think Gareth Bale was Zeus the way Hartson was carrying on. All he did was win a pen (with his back to goal) then score it. If England made Iran look a pub team, what does that make Wales?

Anyway, wouldn't be surprised if Southgate's bottlers somehow leave the door open.
