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.


im a jock and proud, ive been in england since i was 16 ( ganges ) im 50 now and still in england, i love it, hope england do well, but please forget 66 it was a long time ago

That's a good point mate, it's hardly the "England" football team is it, when many who play in it (or could play in it) are foriegn.


my dad would turn in his grave ,,, how many jocks play for rangers or celtic.. we are going s... alley
 
Weejock reckons ' 66 was a long time ago. For his info the Malaysian King and government have just awarded those of us who did the Indonesian Confrontation thing and the world cup final of ' 66 in Singapore naval base at sembawang, a medal, which incidentally B Liar refused on our behalf - think he was still in nappies then. So, can't be that long ago - it's in living memory( well for some of us ). I still maintain the English will be insufferable if they win. Like they were in 1966.

There's too many to remember who I agree with but I'm 100% Jock, Love the Saltire (and the way it fits nicely into the Union Flag / Red Ensign / White Ensign etc.etc. ),hate the Scottish Parliament and the BILLIONS it's costing us, love to see any country supporting its sporting heros but PLEASE...when will all English folk realise...it's not the English who are despised North of the border...it's English sports commentators!!!
 
I had the misfortune to listen to Radio Scotland the other week, when the French Open was starting.
the Scottish pundit (whoever he was) firmly believed that Andy Murray (surly git) had only to turn up to win.

Hypocrisy?

Surely not!

Think yourself lucky!...we have the misforture of having Radio Scotland ALL the time, and then there's STV...don't even go there with me!!!

As for Andy Murray, yeah he's OK but a bit po faced and a Sellik fan into the bargain!!!
