Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

Contrary to some other folks opinions, I think the games were great as a whole. Entertaining games where plenty, a lot of goals scored, some of them really fantastic, lot's of surprises, many big teams going out at early stages, Croatia very surprising achievement, VAR has proved to be a good soluti...

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

My head said France, but my heart said Croatia
Had I thought I was defending my lead, I would have gone for France but as I said before, I had to better Big Boy's score, I went for Croatia. There was still a chance that JJBones would have bettered both of us.

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

I'm going to wait for the final audit per below before we declare a pool winner. Bamboo is listed as first and that would mean 1 point "results" have more value than 3 point "exacts". I personally don't understand that thinking, but if that's their system, that's their system. Lets wait and see. Pe...

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

I was waiting to see the news that after the match the English fan stayed and cleaned the stadium just like the Japanese did. Have not found that piece of news. :wink:

Another view of the cave rescue

Very interesting reading. I shall not put this to the rescue operation thread as it is part of Thai culture and Thai thinking.

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

I guess, I found an answer to my own question. It' s what the result is after the extra time. Penalties don't matter. Am I correct?

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

Re: Tops Supermarket in Hua Hin?

Is there a Tops on Soi Thonglor in Bangers? I have a vague memory that it used to be quite good. Maybe because of so many high earning farangs living there.

Like any forums, you can choose whether your read something or not. It's not really any different on fb. At least I can easily skip the things that don't interest me.

Re: Grape Juice

Just a thought. Have you checked the vineyards? At least long time ago they used to sell grape juice. It may not be cheap, though.
