You tell me, you're the one dishing out the insults
Hardly an insult, just an observation.
I like sporting rivalry but the 'anyone but England' attitude just re-enforces stereotypical and very often bigoted views.
For you seemingly, which in itself could be construed as an ignorant view on others
So for the benefit of others could you please explain the mentality and reasoning behind the 'anyone but England' stance?
For the record; I visit Scotland often and have quite a lot of Scottish friends both in Scotland and in various other places around the UK.
I didn't invent mate, you did, ergo you have to explain it.
I have friends of different nationalities also, is there a point here?
Anyway, back to the actual thread content, US not convincing today, think France will beat them on Friday
Please don't try and say your not aware of the A.B.E. bigotry and rhetoric....if it was all a bit of 'banter' then I wouldn't have a problem at all with it, but it's not....as soon as an English person replies in kind it's labelled as 'typical English arrogance'.
Knobheads like Andy Murray constantly spout the 'anyone but England' bile and if the cap fits and all that.
A disclaimer before the usual chip on the shoulder 'you hate us Scots' allegation.
I take it you're a bit of a snowflake.
If you've taken it as an insult I'll apologise - it was never intended as such - and I'll try to be much more sensitive around you in future.
Another one of the 'anyone but England' brigade. Its become all rather predictable and boring, sorry mate, it just makes you look like a complete knobhead.
