my opinion.....misplaced nationalism due to the inability to accept their declined status as a country.....


Don’t forget that it is locals fault for selling them copious amount of beer and force them to drink to excess.

Can you show me where I have said that or is your jealousy now manifesting itself into lies?

Misplaced? Not sure which country you're from this week but pretty sure its a country that isnt as powerful as England.

a team at their zenith against a team in rebuilding and England remind us why theres being nothing for over 50 years....forget the technical stuff, revert to hoof ball and physical aggression



i agree in a way. because unfortunately the technical stuff you speak of now includes diving,shirt pulling,back passing and acting etc. no wonder fans react. back in the day football was exciting to watch or play. yes it was tough and hard but it was MANLY AND ENTERTAINING and all the aggression stayed on the field where it rightfully belonged. :roll:

Try to keep some perspective please, close to 20000 England fans get pissed up on a long weekend with 5 minor arrests and no serious injuries but apparently that’s worldwide news. Meanwhile frequent attacks on civilians by italian supporters in England resulting in serious injuries, 4 dutch supporters given long jail terms in England recently for serious assaults, Turkish fans boo French national anthem, mass monkey chanting heard all across Europe. But hey………

Indiscriminate baton charges are cowardly and counter productive, I reckon the last one in the UK was at Orgreave way back in the early 80s. If the police are blameless do you guys have an opinion on this from your favourite research source

What's wrong with NO SURRENDER. The Barmy Army added "You're a convict"?

Unfortunately, some people are so anti England that they have to find any little thing to try and discredit our huge improvements.

These people are generally those who havent experiences a game as an away supporter in these types of countries.

Hmm. I've heard a lot of moaning from Labor supporters of late that things are definitely NOT so rosy here. But we know that their mentality is a bit off. :wink:
Can't help it if people are generally quite happy here. :)

There's the difference you see. A lot of us have been outside australia so aren't as blinded by what australia has to offer.

I have been outside Australia and have been very impressed with various parts of the world and also feel sorry for many in the same places. Most places have their plusses and minuses but Australia (especially western part of Adelaide) still has a lot going for it. Not called the lucky country for nothing. 8)

Some places are great to visit for holiday but you wouldn’t want to live there.

I wonder just how much of the increased anti-English sentiment in Europe is down to Brexit?

If Britain does leave Europe. it will make it difficult for the failed economy countries' residents' to move to the UK and live like kings on the welfare, as currently occurs, so I have heard.

It is also likely that the Germans, French and Spanish economies would have to pay more to continue to rule Europe.

This was your quote in response to the minor trouble in portugal. I ask again, when did I say these were the reasons for it?
