The knob in front of me last night robbed me of Alex Holzwarth's drumstick! It was in my hand and then he robbed me of it

Did he literally steal it from your hands? Or was it a case you both had hold of it and he eventually took it fully?

If it's the former, what a dick. I would be struggling to stop myself from kicking off about it!

Stole it from my hands! I was able to wring it free from the handful of other people who had reached for it, and for a few seconds I triumphantly held it in the air like YEAH WOO and turned to my friends behind me, next thing I know he swiped it and ran off

What a jerk. Friend of mine once caught Nicko from Maiden's stick, only to have a guy boot him in the balls and run off with it. I find it difficult to understand why people would do things like this...if you didn't catch it, it's not yours - how can you have any attachment to it knowing you got it in such a deceitful manner?

That's why I feel so special about the Jorg Michael stick I own! Jorg threw it up (only one at the show he threw out) but it hit a light and fell to the stage. Two songs later Jens picks it up and just drops it on the edge of the stage near me, you know what happened next

But if you were able to wring it free from some other people, doesn't that mean they had it first?

Just kidding, that sucks. Unmetal.

Count yourself lucky in some ways dude, I've never got a thing at all the shows I've been to. I usually storm the front and grab the setlist, people always forget about them

The fact that Sweden has to win against England tonight to have any chance of reaching the quarter finals.

I'm not a football fan but that was a good game. Feel sorry for the Swedes, they played really well.

Everyone else here was calling it genius, I honestly think our third was a bit scrappy. But it was a fantastic game of football to watch either way. Well played.

How was it scrappy? Theo doing what he does best, the Sweden Defence couldn't handle it and Wellbeck's finish was class. Obviously he needed some luck for it to go in but you don't not intend to make contact with the Ball Goal-wards in a situation like that.

I dunno, it seemed to me more like he was just trying to get any contact with it he could in a bit of desparation, it was a great strike and a good finish, but it seemed a bit spur-of-the-moment

However, I have about as much knowledge of football as your average rodent, so that could just be me!

I've since heard comments from some of the Sweden players, saying they definitely played better than England.

There seems to be a growing trend of more "Direct" Football being criticised, especially by Teams who lose to a Team that plays that way, much like how Chelsea got criticism for the way they played against Barcelona and Bayern Munich to win the Champions League, and the continued spat between Arsenal (Wenger) and Stoke (Pulis).

I don't get it. Football is about scoring more Goals than the opposite Team and finding a way to do it. The way you do it is just a means to an end. A more direct style of Football is just as legitimate as passing the Ball to Death ala Barcelona and Spain, which quite frankly I often find tedious and is not without its weaknesses either.

The latter can work great if you have the right players and successfully control the Game and take the chances when they come, but go a Goal Behind? I've noticed more than once that when Spain or Barcelona go a Goal or more behind, if they don't peg it back within 10-15 minutes, they start running out of ideas and actually get worse as the game goes on.

If there's one team I don't want to win Euro 2012, it's Spain. If not England, I want a team with a more direct and enjoyable to watch approach to win it and if they win the Final with hardly any possession, all the more better!

You're right in that whether they played methodically "better" is pretty irrelevant if they can't get the goals. That's been Holland's problem all tournament.

Well, Sweden played well, but in the end the result is what counts. I'm kinda bummed out, obviously, but then again, you need to keep things in perspective. Those England goals were class, and I'm glad I'm not Isaksson today. Easily the weakest link yesterday.

From now on, I'll cheer for my other country, Germany!

Good point, I did mean to say in my original post that Sweden played well too and it could have gone either way, but I think I eventually got lost in ranting about Spain/Barcelona!

Germany are a great side and my favourites to win Euro 2012 and that was my opinion before I was lucky enough to draw them in my Work's Sweepstake!

I think you should be glad you're not Ibrahimovic, who's about as Swedish as my testicles. Does anyone like him?!

Very, very ill with a cold right now. Got it yesterday, and I'm meant to be going to the boyfriend's house on Wednesday. So a lot of dosage is needed right now.

Haha!

Zlatan certainly comes across as a bit of a character to say the least. I wonder what he was saying to Hart when they scored the equaliser.

He's actually quite lazy sometimes but his quality when he steps up to the plate, plus his Goal-Scoring records speak for themselves.

And Nikki, sorry to hear you're not well. Get well soon!
