Scotland supporting England in the World Cup

Hopefully some members will not have failed to notice Jack McConnell (Scotlands First Minister) stating his views on which team he would be supporting at the forthcoming World Cup. Needless to say he said he wouldn't be supporting England....(see weblink)

This has sparked a huge debate here north of the border. Any Rum Ration members got any views? :?:

I always used to support Scotland during events like rugby but since the scum started wearing the other teams kit I'll never shout for the jocks again.

I'm 1/4 scottish but I'm embarrased about that.

I now have an intense dislike for FRISPS

Well, I was under the impression that the Scots hated the English and not the other way around, but I stand to be corrected !

Skunkmiester,
I'm Scottish born and Bred but dont Tar us all with the same brush mate. I'm not a nationalist, and I wish England well in the World cup. I dont have a problem with the English in any way, in fact I get a bit pissed off with attitude up here myself

Awww Fuggit! I'm going to have a rant....

We currently have been landed with a Parliment that quite frankly has done Fcuk all for me or any other b'stard in Jockistan. Just what we need, a bunch of Juan-Kerrs Taking 2% of or Hard Earned to support a bunch of political inadiquates debate utterly frivilous crap (Do you know you can be charged for giving your kid a slap round the rump up here? - true) Thats about all I can think of that these Morons have done for me. It's bad enough having a bunch of Back-sliding Fence sitting sleazy Lying b'stards in Westminister making a mess of things but Horaah! we now have more of it in Scotland. The only good thing about the Scottish Parlimaent is that it's Destroyed the SNP's Wesminister prescence - cost over 1/2 BN to do it though!


... Thats Better

Sorry

Without getting into a debate on Scottish politics that could go on and on....

I am glad to hear I am not the only one that gets pis$ed off with the anti-english attitudes up here - and I am 100% Scottish. What really gets me (especially bearing in mind what Jack McConnell said) is that The Scottish Executive and the SFA (Scottish FA) have respectively spent a small fortune on advertising in an attempt to stamp out racism and sectarianism. With his comments Jack McConnell has done absolutely nothing to aid this cause - can someone please explain to me why an anti-english comment is acceptable but a racist/sectarian comment isn't? In my book they are one and the same thing.

The thing that really makes me laugh though is the fact that the Scots still have this anti-english thing which dates back to being at war with them hundreds of years ago, but then they'll happily go on holiday to Germany and we were at war with them only 60 years ago !!

Guys, I have met quite a few great scots, especialy when I was based in Arbroath.

But in the last five years I have read and heard little but anti English crap from north of the border.

I don't belive we will win and I know that England isnt that much of a country but the level of hate that has been sent our way is beyond belief.

I for one will not lay down and take hatred with out sending some back.

Nice to see that some of you are level headed can make your own mind up. I'd buy you a pint any time.

I'd like to meet Jack McConnell though and tell this to his face.

As a side note I was drinking with a scots guy during our drubbing by the scottish in the 6 nations. I was first to congratulate him because he had been good natured and commended our meagre attempts to score when we managed to get the ball.

I like good natured banter, bit like Marines vs Para's (there is still a bit of respect there) but what Ive seen recently is very disapointing.
 
Been in Jockland most of my life -married into it and my kids are Scots.



The jocks -the majority of them will cheer on the England team--

the loudest mouths up here are the newspapers -------its all good headline stuff .

Fully agree with the chunky monkey-----------the Scottish Parliament is a load of balls .

In the dark distant past --the Scots sold there rights to a parliament to the English --------I think the sum was £400 !!
Also at the moment the Uk supports Scotland equivalent to £1k per head of population .

Bring back the Scottish Office
 
can't believe what I'm reading on here: 100% scots falling over themselves to be nice to their English oppo. 40 years ago I was sat in the mess deck of a Leander frigate in Singapore Naval Base when England won the World Cup and all, I repeat all the English were bloody insufferable. The English footie team have been the biggest bunch of under achievers over the last four decades that you're likely to find.

I'll wish England well, but won't support them in the World Cup. Why? 2 weeks still to go and already I've had enough of Rooney's foot on every newscast, the selection of a 17 year old who has hardly played for his own club, the England team (full of pretty good players) under the direction of a manager whose tactical skills rival the generals at the Charge of the Light Brigade and last but not least, the meeja - sycophantic, xenophobic, arrogant, a bunch of tossers. England - OK. Engerlaand - no thanks.
