  • 1990 wasn't born

    2018 sitting in a Texas apartment on my own looking after two dogs
  • 1990 small hotel in Crete. Power cut part of 1st half. Remember hearing celebrations from a small German hotel up the road at full time.

    2018 at home in upright uncomfortable chair as have put my back out.
  • 1990 - A pub in Hackney with a very big screen

    2018 - Home, I should go down the local but I have watched all games at home and now don't want to jinx it.
  • 1990 - 10 years old at home with parents. Cried myself to sleep

    2018 - likely to be in a pub in Weybridge
  • 1990 - in bed I presume, was too young to be watching.

    (One added in) Euro 96, at home crying my little eyes out when Southgate scored.

    2018 - At home I think, will be rushing home in from work. But if we're in the final Sunday will be in the pub.
  • 1990 at home - IIRC "revising" for an end of year exam. Not a lot got done that night.
    2018 at home
  • 1990 - Florida, out in the sticks, football of no fucking interest whatsoever to the local tv even though they were hosting the fickling tournament 4 years later, internet hadn’t been invented, except it had to a certain extent but only the British had it in the form of teletext/ceefax and the fucking yanks had no concept of what I was talking about when I asked them if they at least had that capability on their TVs so I could check the score

    2018 - at home, in the media room, beers in the wine cooler, do not disturb
  • 1990- aged 5 months so probably asleep in a cot

    2018- in my room with a beer enjoying football

  • 1990 - 24 At my cricket club (Blackheath CC The Rectory Field) as I was for the 1/4 in '86. Never watched another England game there although I'm still a member.
    2018 - 52 At home, loads of friends and my lads friends, barrel of ale, cold lagers, jugs of Pimms and G&T's. Plenty of Fred's (New Eltham Butchers) finest sausages, extensive football playlist and we will party in the garden until very late if we win and will then repeat on Sunday.
  • 1990: small hotel in Braine l'Alleud, Belgium, near Waterloo. Watching in my room, there being no lounge with a TV. Nearly broke the bed when we scored.

    2018: somewhere near Somerset House as we have tickets for the Sigrid concert and she comes on stage around 21:00.

  • 1990 aged 25 in an English pub in the Algarve sat next to a bloke with a beard who turned about to be Derek Hales' brother.

    2018 at home.
  • Italy - 23 yrs old - in bar in South of France - single
    Tomorrow Russia - 50 in bar in Beckenham - married
    Sunday Russia - 50 in bar in Beckenham - hopefully without French mother in law
    Monday - if we lose - divorced

  • 1990 age 9 remember clearly watching it in mum and dad's front room and not understanding why waddle did what he did and everyone not having a lot of love for Stuart Pearce. I just thought the Germans were filthy dirty bastard cheats. Especially when they made Gazza cry

    I remember someone saying we should have taken Shilton off for Beassant as he was good at penalties

    2018 either in the pub or in my own front room. It feels almost out of body now, Croatia are probably the team I've been consistently impressed with this tournament yet I'm not fearful of them. We move a lot more and move the ball a lot quicker. Modric and Rakitic are awesome, elite midfielders but I see that they can be disrupted by our tempo. Need to give it absolutely everything like we have done all tournament, get to the final first then worry about who is available
  • 90 aged 15 with the old boy over the road
    18 aged 44 on me birthdag with family and friends in social club in beckenham
  • 1990 at home with wife (just married).
    2018 O'Neills in Bromley. 'Av it.
  • 1990 a month away from being born
    2018 hopefully Moscow but doubtful more than likely the local where It began with friends, not all Charlton so good to watch a match together.
