We lost then?
I said I wasn't going to watch the match but I did
and the famous Wombat jinx came into play
either that or ITWitch thought the Portugese players were the ones playing in white.
We lost then?
Thank feck for that. Maybe now I'll be able to go to the supermarket or turn on the television without being assualted with "INGERLAND!" crap all the time.
Ah come off it guys
It may be a little sad that people cry because we lost a game, but you have to show a little patriotism, after all, it is your country that is being represented
I was quite depressed for about two hours after we lost, but I soon recovered.
Going along with the crowd in this one also gets rid of the 'geek' image that people tend to hold about IT Technicians, not that I really care about that, haha.
We've just got to put up with the obligatory day-long discussion about the match at work on Monday... "such-and-such played well didn't he", "we should have had that goal!!", "England played well I thought", "Did you see that at the 76th minute?!? Man that was good/awful/brilliant football!!!!1"
I can see where you are coming from, but I have always love patriotism. I -love- the England flags on all the cars and hanging down from people's windows. I love the fact that went walking through the city centre after we won a match that everyone was singing English songs in the street. I just feel we don't have enough of this in our country...
Yeah suppose the patriotism is OK, it's just football that doesn't interest me. It's only a game! :P
We must be the only two people mad enough to be up at this time posting on a computer forum.. haha.
Not only that, but i'm sitting here at 1am in my swimming trucks having only come out of the pool in the back garden at about midnight... wow, I am so sad.
and in other news: Today marked the 90th aniversary of the battle of the SommeOriginally Posted by webman
I guess you're right Craig. There are more important things in the world other than football, even for patriots.
Make that three people...
Yesterday was the 90th anniversery of the first Day of the Battle of The Somme. Nearly 20000 British soldiers died that day.Originally Posted by ITWombat
Yesterday England lost a football match and left the world cup.
Which event was considered the most important?
Typical comment from a non football fan.it's just football that doesn't interest me. It's only a game!
I'm proud not to be a fan
Ha. OK for someNot only that, but i'm sitting here at 1am in my swimming trucks having only come out of the pool in the back garden at about midnight... wow, I am so sad.
It may be a form of patriotism but when it only comes out for a football match and thats it thats what gets me.
