The penalty shoot out should be at the beginning of the game, then we can all go home.

Don't even bother with the penalties. Just have the coin toss and be done with it.

Our neighbour was at Wembley last night with his football mad 8 year old son.  He also took him to the semi-final v Germany.   He texted me today saying the following

”It was a total mess, whatever you may have seen in the news, having been there I can say it was actually much worse. Ticketless fans outnumbered those with tickets outside the ground and it was absolute carnage. I’d be surprised if it was less than 10,000 that managed to get in by storming entrances, piggybacking through turnstiles etc. 
The semi-final was one of the best atmosphere I’ve ever been a part of and I’ve been following England at home and overseas for 20 years. Yesterday couldn’t have been further from the Germany game. 
There was no getting away from the chaos and this was the worst organised and policed event I’ve ever been at. (His son) was really upset when it was happening but was okay afterwards and we made it home safely by 2.30 am.”

Whilst I think it would be difficult for any man to ignore Ms Loren's undoubted assets.. I never found her attractive.  Similar to Eric Morecambe's 'playing all the right notes.. but not necessarily in the right order...'

On a point of order..  In my admittedly limited knowledge of Italian Cuisine.. surely the Pineapple idea comes as 'Hawaian' Pizza', and Hawaii is an American state... so we can blame the Americans?

 

Oddly, my favourite pizza topping is Ham and Mushroom, usually seen in Italy I believe as the slightly more upmarket 'Prosciutto con Funghi' or thereabouts.  It seems to have disappeared from UK supermarket shelves so I usually end up with Peperoni.  To prevent the peperoni from going all crispy and dried out.. I usually put thinly sliced tomato, or mushrooms on top of it and add a splash of good Olive oil before baking.  Proper posh me... :laugh:

DJ360 Blame the Canadians because according to Wiki the first Hawaiian Pizza was made by Sam Panopoulos a Greek born Canadian at a restaurant in Chatham Ontario in 1962. The name Hawaiian came from the brand of pineapple that he used!

My son received a video of a joke , its really good and funny. Dont know where he got it but will try and find it. As for pineapple on Pizza, no no no, but that doesnt say that someone likes it. Last year the craze was chips on pizza. Believe me or not it was popular.

nonnaB, What is wrong with pineapple on pizza? it's yummo especially at the end of a hot day with a few beers.

The trend here is for dessert pizzas, strawberry, banana and Nutella is one of the most popular.

Nothing, I love pineapple, but I wouldn't eat it on top of pizza. Whatever food  Italian, english , german is nearly always converted into something not agreeable to others. So enjoy it whatever.

I’ve always thought that a pizza must basically have cheese and tomato (in some form) on it or it isn’t a pizza - it’s just a bread base with a topping on it.  It’s like asking for a cheese and tomato sandwich but asking for the cheese and tomato to be replaced by jam!

It's a bit like Yorkshire pudding, in a way. It can be filled with onions and gravy, eaten plain with a Sunday roast or with jam as a sweet. I've never been a fan of Yorkshire pudding, although my father's Yorkshires were spectacular!

 

As regards pizza, it has to be micro thin based, topped with loads of cheese, garlic and tomato with a good sprinkling of herbs. The only outlet in Nottingham that ever served pizzas I could eat was The Pizza Place in the 70s. They disappeared long ago.

Pizza Napolitana is with a thin base as most most of them are now. My MIL used to have a Pizzeria and she made the pan pizza a thicker version as they used to be. Whenever she had any leftover dough she would fry it in dollops and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over them . We still that sometimes and its delicious especially if the dough is fairy light.

Just found out last night that my 2nd granson who is 17 has been tested positive for covid.  It has really shaken him up, his bother tested positive about a week ago. Silly boy (man he's 23) he's got a good job, going to sign for his first house, but call of booze and football, so at the moment all his plans are on hold. WHY!!! did he not have the jab? he could have done, but choose not to. This has not only effected him but his bother who has jus found an apprenticship (no jobs when he left school) at 17 also his mum who is a doctors PA and his dad who is a joiner/door/window fitter. When will these younster's learn?  it only take's seconds to get the jab and it's free.  Now whole house is in lock down for 10 day's or more.

Mary, sorry to hear this about your family members.  The trouble is that some of the younger generation think they’re invincible and that they won’t catch then virus but, as you say, a positive result affects all the people  they live with.
