  1. There's absolutely no chance that England get past both Senegal and France when both games are on the cursed ITV. If they were on the BBC we'd be favourites surely
  2. Good to see Wilson proving to be a decent option from the bench. Links up well, gives us energy in attack. Could be a good option if anything goes to extra time when Kane is playing as a holding midfielder.

  5. The head of security said that although foreigns wouldn't be discriminated for being gay by the state for this little 3 week spell, those gays still need to leave their rainbows at home or the locals might take it upon themselves to batter them. Very welcoming. Meanwhile locals are warned not to come out in this 3 weeks because once the foreigns are gone they could be persecuted for it. But aye, please tell me again how speaking out on gay rights makes you an islamaphobe. Fuckin' hell. Your post also seems to have cut off before you could tell us how filling your friendship group with wronguns and never confronting them led you to changing all their minds, so we should all be adopting that brilliant strategy of turning a blind eye. Is it because that never happened and gay rights just aren't a red line for you in your privileged straight cis life? Do you pop around a paedo's house and say ooh I mustn't mention that paedo part, I shall find common ground by asking them what their favourite children's movie star is? That'll show 'em their paedo thoughts are wrong. "Each to their own" is an expression people use when something personally disgusts or discomforts them but they haven't come to terms with it yet. It's not surprising you don't value gay rights when you speak of homosexuality in such expressions. You have a Ukraine flag in your avatar. Shall we host the world cup in Russia, they'll let NATO countries in and then we'll all say absolutely nothing for 3 weeks? That sound reasonable to you? How about we go back in time to Apartheid South Africa, have the world cup there but for 3 weeks only foreign blacks and foreign whites can mingle, not locals, everyone says nothing for 3 weeks then when it is all over we go home and they go back to apartheid persecutions. That sound like a reasonable world cup to you? Maybe its that you can't see how hosting a world cup somewhere that needs to suspend persecution for 3 weeks is absolutely fucking insane that you think not wearing a rainbow on your upper arm is somehow the right thing to do. Collective values are not determined by whether they have 100% adoption or not. So it's irrelevant if your individual value is not in align with the collective.
  6. So annoying when people are singing whilst you're trying to enjoy your McDonalds
  7. I saw an Italy flag above one of the local restaurants and said they must have put it out for the world cup before I realised they didn't qualify
  8. I don't think you could do the controversy anymore in the UK, everyone knows about it, everyone knows it is wrong to award such a society with a prestigious celebration. But British society and English football culture isn't very good at collective action. It's each to their own, eye rolling at anyone trying to force an attitude on you. So some will watch, some will watch some of it, some won't watch.
  9. Aye, if only it was 2,000 then it would be alright? Symbolic gestures for better rights do not make you a prat. This tournament is literally making homophobic threats and demands. If you can't stand up for your values now at this most piss easy time and perfect opportunity then you never will. Or as is the case with FIFA, you don't actually really have these values in the first place.
  10. Newcastle or Liverpool there can't be that much revenue growth locally. Obviously for Newcastle there is more potential growth since it is starting from as low as it could be, but still real revenue benefit has to be new fans from elsewhere. Local growth is going to be what? Max £10m a year more than prior perhaps.
  11. This line from him “What do you do then? You try to engage, make friends. Don’t start accusing, fighting, insulting, you start engaging. And this is what we should be doing.” Half right. The Blair led strategy is to engage, that's right, however part of that, a big part, the purpose of engaging is to give them exposure to our culture and values in the hope that they eventually see the light and adopt them. FIFA however want us to shut our values off for 3 weeks.
  12. Can we stop saying Elon Musk please. His correct name is Space Karen.
  13. It's not about people being stupid thinking this is normal. It's about deliberate targeted protest. At this stage not watching and not going might make an individual feel better about themselves but for the collective that's going to be a complete and utter failure of a strategy. The boycott window was long ago and we missed it. Non compliance and targeted protest of those there is now the only way to salvage something out of this. If you don't watch in conjunction with that happening out there then great, extra effect, but if you don't watch and this doesn't happen out there then so what. Well done McDonalds overspent on their advertising costs because they over estimated viewing figures, pat yourself on the back. Fair enough you'd need some balls on ya as a lone fan or two, but you don't need balls on ya if you're a player or representative or in a tv studio over there. They have to take the lead. The morality police stepping out of line is exactly what would bring this world cup down. They are at their weakest at this event and it's a tinderbox to see if they are bluffing. That's why FIFA want you compliant because this could humiliate them forever. If England, Germany, Netherlands, France and the likes have compliant players, representatives, fans, then Qatar wins. Their culture becomes seen as equal to its population and a lesson they take is that there is a place in this world for their rotten ideas. Whereas role models like Gary Neville ( ) singing I'm coming out whilst waving a rainbow flag is a long game attempt to promote inward reflection for the Qatari audience and youth. If those going there don't bang the drum at them we've failed to salvage anything from this FIFA mistake. This world cup is happening whether we like it or not. So how will history remember it? Those there will determine that now. They need to be made cognisant of that. They need to know it's all on them now. It's not a low viewing figure for Qatar vs Ecuador. The pictures and images that last, that are the legacy of this, that is up to them.
  14. This idea that it's there now so its right for men not to hold hands is a FIFA value I do not share. Politicians without enough backbone to call out a country in the country they were invited to want you to think like FIFA. It makes them look good. You can go there and disrespect their rules. There's no better time than the world cup to do so. This world cup should be about humiliating their culture on their own turf. Rainbow flags everywhere.
  15. Along with the banning of rainbow flags, telling gay men to stay at home and women to cover up it's another indicator that we are going there and bending to their culture. We are putting their culture on a level playing field with our own. It's one thing to let them into your own country, it's another to hold their culture up as one to be respected.
  16. I thought maybe the training camps could be there instead
  17. If you're going to do it right then 1 per region in England. South East, South West, London, East Midlands, West Midlands, Yorkshire, North West, North East
  18. To be fair 4 have to be dropped from the list, other than 1 of the Dublin one's the other 3 will have to come from England. Once you drop Sunderland, West Ham and Man City there's just no way Brighton or Norwich would ever be able to compete with what the remaining bring in location and stadia.
  19. Sunderland is a left field shout to be fair. You wonder what Leeds and Sheffield did.
  20. He likely be banned from playing. Joey Barton got an 18 month ban reduced on appeal to 13. But he bet on his own team to lose. Toney could still be looking at a few months out of the game. You can't have someone in that situation playing for England.
  21. Didn't local councils have to put their cities forward in conjunction with the stadium owners? It wasn't just some bloke picking what he wanted. The list will also be reduced down in April.
  22. Wouldn't be surprised if FA informed him what was likely to come out. May have even timed it to be after squad announcement and not before. Will never know.
