Re: World Cup

My faith has actually been restored after watching the England matches. So sad they didn't get through but they are young and fresh (so far) not tainted yet by money and outrageous life styles and as for Gareth Southgate .......... superb manager. For me football has come home. Can't wait for the next world cup.

Re: World Cup

Wish I was in Spain for the final. Just got text that the council has set up a bar in the civic centre for the match Now get this - they’re using a 65 inch 4K tv. For a Euro you get a pint and a snackand a ticket-AND after the match they will draw out a ticket with the winner going home with the 4K telly!!!!

I have close family members from both sides of the Irish border and was ashamed and disgusted at some of the comments and attitude of that family, particularly their support for a team they probably did not know where it was on the map. Well done England.
Unfortunately it is sometimes impossible to separate politics from sport. What you experienced may also be part due to the particular calendar date, when the English (Loyalists) engage in burning the Irish out of their homes by way of celebrating a battle which took place in the year 1690. Now I know that people will scream 'THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT ENGLISH' and of course they are not, but they are staunchly British (and currently propping up the British government) and to people watching the football, that difference doesn't matter a jot. So ask yourself as to why Irish people living in NI would cheer on a Nation under whose dominance they have suffered so much.

As for myself (an Irishman living in England) I watched the tournament in my local pub with my English family and friends around me and cheered on England as loudly as anybody.

Re: World Cup

Exactly Michael

It's a fball match ffs

Is it viewed differently here- yes, simply because of our divided society with one section believing they are more English than the English hence there's a bit of stick when England win/ lose

I am staunchly Irish and enjoyed the tournament as a jealous Irish fan with England deserving their success

Many of us thought from the outset the young guns with an excel!ent attitude would either flop or do magnificently. If I was an England fan I would be very proud of how they performed -best 4 reached the semis

Ps STILL think Germany will win it

Re: World Cup

Just like the Olympics & I did predict that the EU would try to grab the glory for the World Cup...........pathetic. If Brazil had won would the whole of South America have claimed the win?
