Sorry Clare (and Simon) - here have a bevy :drinks: and cheer up - time to support the rest of the British Isles. Besides we could be joining you shortly!

Aye, cheers Shelli - hard luck stories ain't gonna make things better in the morning! Saying nothing of the fact that the Italians winning goal came from a free kick which shouldn't have been awarded to them in the 1st place. Tough s*** once again when it come to bigger v smaller nations.

I'd agree with you with supporting a united British Isles when it comes to the Olympics etc but I have to admit that applying that scenario to international football ain't likely to happen. I actually don't mind the PLAYERS who make up the English national team or supporters but the commentators down south make it impossible for us to support them. A little less of sarcastic arrogance would certainly help and alleged Scotsmen like Alan Hansen saying "we" when talking about England doesn't endear to natives north of Hadrian's Wall.

Apologies for the rant but I don't think the Germans would support the Dutch ditto Brazil/Argentina etc.

I'm ducking already for the predicted slagging off - please go gently.

Fair comments

I'm happy to support Scotland, Ireland or Wales for any competition that England is out of because they're part of the British Isles - Remember we're classified as British not English.

On a side note - you can have Scottish British and Welsh British but never English British weird

I've always been curious to why England play God save the Queen as a national anthem as it's the N.A for Britain, could someone explain to me please?

When it comes to football and sport in general, the British v Scottish, English, Irish & Welsh identity scenario creates a minefield of arguments which might never fulfill a satisfactory explanation. Like I said, the smugness/arrogance of people like Gary Lineker irritate me immensely.

We were really unfortunate to be in the 'group of death' with the 2 world cup finalists and Ukraine who reached the quarter finals, you would've been supporting Isreal against Russia last night Shelli?

Loving the comments on Yahoo about the footie:

Referee Frojdfeldt rightly tells him to do one

:lol:

Please excuse the timeline above these comments. It isn't 63 minutes, obviously. The timeline is obviously paying tribute to the England defence by being absolutely dreadful.

:lol:

Does GK Scott Carson have a little Scottish blood in him? I thought it was only our goalies who made bloopers like that.

I haven't a clue who I'll support in Euro 2008, I usually quite enjoy watching the Dutch. It certainly won't be the French, their players have been mouthing off far too much over the past couple of days - France & Italy have some dodgy Spanish officiating to thank in assisting with their qualification.

Can I say "Good Luck" to Man.Utd in the premiership title race and for the Champions League final against Chelsea, I don't want to see blue ribbons on either trophy. Ditto the UEFA cup and SPL championship - it's squeaky bum time for me being a hoops supporter.

Isn't sporting rivalry a fantastic thing?

I can only sympathise with you for your team Shelli, you'll be totally gutted. A good 2008/09 season could see an immediate return to the Premiership, good luck to your club also Kerri for next season.

As for me, I could still be celebrating a championship party all depending on various permutations of results. Time will tell come May 22nd.
