    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.

    Re: It was me .. I did it

    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"

    Re: It was me .. I did it

    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

    I guess you're right Craig. There are more important things in the world other than football, even for patriots.

    Yesterday was the 90th anniversery of the first Day of the Battle of The Somme. Nearly 20000 British soldiers died that day.

    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 may be a form of patriotism but when it only comes out for a football match and thats it thats what gets me.
