    OMG I just can't believe tonight's result Arsenal v Monaco - it's a mistake surely ?

    My Dad, and Zand, need a strong drink or something to recover from this shock ...... will a cup of tea suffice?

    Commiserations

    Yes thanks Jan, the cup of tea was wonderful.

    We went to my son's house to watch the match but left at 2-0! I was fine - it's at times like that I remind myself I am really a Leeds supporter. Wink My husband and son aren't happy - they are going to the 2nd leg in Monaco.

    Thanks for your commiserations, they helped Smile

    Certainly will Zand ....... we live quite near some Arsenal fans (they were having a 'footie' night)  and we know they were also pleased - you could hear the yells as Arsenal scored!

    Great game for Arsenal  Smile

    Arsenal battled to a 2-0 win at Monaco but the victory was not enough to keep them in the Champions League. (Agg: 3-3; Monaco win on away goals)

    Not the overall result Arsenal fans wanted - my dear dad being one of them Sad

    Lots of cheering cuppa's required  ...... possibly something a little stronger.

    Not too sure how Zand is feeling Question

    I am happy that Arsenal played so well. They always do this though, they let themselves down first leg making it almost impossible to go through, then they almost achieve the impossible, but not quite.

    My husband and son were happy to be there. They said it was nothing like the awful sick feeling they had in Munich when it happened before. I was happy not to be there.

    I am also happy that we will now not waste money on any more Champions League matches this season! A cup of tea was all I needed. And a fasting BG of 5.2 this morning too Smile

    Hey what a good fasting BG number this morning sunny

    Isn't it nice to see the England Womens Football Team doing well - have you been following their success?


    England boss Mark Sampson has challenged his players to make history as they close in on Women's World Cup glory.

    Sampson will send his side into the semi-final clash with reigning champions Japan in Edmonton on Wednesday with the biggest prize of all tantalisingly close.

    He admits they face two intensely difficult tests if they are to get past the 2011 winners and then beat either the United States or Germany in the final, but he is confident they can have a major say in the trophy's ultimate destination.

    Sampson told Sky Sports News: "Well look, we are still in there fighting. There are a lot of teams that have gone home.

    "There are only four left - three of the best teams in the world and England - so we are in a place where we have only got to win two matches to make history and create a real special moment in England football's history and a special moment for this team.

    "That's the mission: two wins, and when you put it like that, it doesn't seem much. But it's two wins against potentially two great opponents.

    "But the team has been great up to this point. They will really be ready to go for Wednesday, they will be really fired up, really focused, really concentrated.

    "We are feeling a huge wave of support from back home, which is giving the players that extra motivation, that extra sense of pride and passion, and it's making them wake up with an extra spring in their step, so we are going to keep embracing that support.

    "We really hope the people can stay with us, stay connected with this team, get behind us again and let's get ourselves through to a final."

    England booked their place in the last four with a tense 2-1 victory over hosts Canada, but they did so with first-choice keeper Karen Bardsley back in the dressing room after she suffered an allergic reaction which caused a swelling underneath her right eye.

    Substitute Siobhan Chamberlain took over and played the final 38 minutes, but Sampson revealed Bardsley is expected to return to training on Tuesday and to be available for selection for the semi-final.

    He said: "KB is in a much better place today. The swelling has gone down a lot. Obviously, we have sent some tests to go back to the UK to find out exactly what happened, but I think it was just a one-off event.

    "She was obviously allergic to something that happened yesterday and the eye has puffed up a little bit, but it's clearly far better now, so we are confident she will be in a great place to train tomorrow and get back with the team."

    Well sorry to say that England Women went out of the World Cup in desperately unlucky fashion as Laura Bassett's stoppage-time own goal gave Japan a 2-1 win...

    But I'm still clapping and cheering the England Women - they did do well to get to the semi's - so please keep positive Smile

    @Jan1 Here's the story I mentioned on the music thread.

    My son is working away from home this week (2 hours drive away) so he is staying in a hotel there. I deal with the family's paperwork and I made an unforgivable error in that I misread the deadline date for our football membership renewals. affraid Arsenal extended the date till today, but we only found that out yesterday evening. Hence the 2x2 hour dashes to get my son to sign his 2 forms. Embarassed banghead

    The look of sheer joy - well done !


    Fara Williams scored an extra-time penalty as England defeated Germany 1-0 in Edmonton to win the third place play-off at the Women’s World Cup.

    What a very good tournament the women's team has had ... let's hope the momentum women's football is currently experiencing continues.

    Did You Know That ...

    "A team of 115 athletes from across England, Scotland and Wales will be representing Great Britain at the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games in Los Angeles which started on Saturday.

    They will join in the region of 7,000 athletes from 177 countries - along with 3,000 coaches, 30,000 volunteers and an anticipated 500,000 spectators who will be part of the event which runs until 2 August.

    The event for athletes with intellectual disabilities will be the largest sports and humanitarian event anywhere in the world in 2015 and is also the single biggest event in Los Angeles since the 1984 Olympics.

    Special Olympics GB chief executive Karen Wallin said: "I am delighted that we are able to take such a large team to represent the country at what should be an incredible World Summer Games in Los Angeles.

    "This should be a World Games to remember. We will be proud of every athlete and we know they will strive to be the very best they can. We will bring home medals but most importantly our athletes will obtain memories, friendships and experiences to last a lifetime."

    Oh Dear ... not good results from yesterdays European Football, with both Arsenal and Chelsea losing.

    My Dad was a little dis-appointed with the Arsenal result! Sad

    He says he will cheer himself up later with a good walk in the Autumn sunshine ... and he's 90 !
