    World Cup Group F

    Any thoughts on Argentina - Bosnia?

    Argentina minus 1 at evens.
    Over 3.5 6/4 - not sure of this?

    I'm wondering if BH are slightly overpriced tonight. Hard to see them turning over the hotpots but they look good for second place in the group so Argentina might be happy to ease into the way of things tonight before really flexing their muscles against the other two.

    On balance, I do think Argentina will win but I've taken the draw at 5/1.

    I've gone over 3.5 goals. Two good attacks and leaky back lines. Not sure if I'll stay up. Age is a terrible thing.

    Not too far wrong but I couldn't stay up with work the next morning. BH very unlucky at the first goal.

    Anyone reckon a draw would have been right?

    Seems to be a fair bit of money for Moses from Nigeria for MOTM tonight. I'm assuming by that, that he is Nigeria's most famous/popular player.......

    He has shortened in most places to 2/1 ish, but is still a juicy 4/1 with Betfred. I just missed the 5/1 with Coral

    Team News is out and he starts....

    Slim - I'm looking to read up a little more on just how exactly this MOTM is voted for. And also the quickest place to check the result of it!
    What site you using? Cheers.

    I think it's via the FIFA site, DH.

    Well there had to be a stinker and Nigeria well and truly stunk the place out. Abysmal.

    I'm trying to work out the magnitude of Townsend's idiocy. At the moment, it was never a penalty. On the replay it wasn't a penalty. A couple of replays later he had a case. Another couple later it was a penalty. In the next sentence it was a blatant penalty. Then it was a very difficult decision. Then it was a blatant penalty again but it was hard for the ref to spot.

    FFS. You're going round in circles, Andy.

    If it took half a dozen replays for the TV viewer to see it, it was hardly blatant.

    Maybe worth a check on the Argentina team tonight? A draw would suit both teams very well and, if Messi is rested, 0-0 looks a distinct possibility.

    My thoughts are:

    Argentina need rhythm and momentum so won't play a poor side
    Nigeria are awful

    So, if anything I think Argentina minus 1 on the Asian might be the bet, though will wait for the teams.

    Edited to say: if you could against every thought I post you could retire in around 3 weeks time...

    How good will Argentina have to be to make up for this defence and keeper?
