  1. It's unforgivable, Mr Smith's fields were for scabby sheep not houses.
  2. He'd have to leave one of the 3 goalkeepers out.
  3. I haven't lived there for 20 years, but I still haven't forgiven the Post Office for changing Frampton Cotterell's postcode from BS17 to BS36.
  4. I've always thought that was weird. Avon was abolished in the 90s, long before the internet was popular. It's bizarre that it still exists on so many online forms.
  5. Maybe he's just really really old?
  6. Fingers crossed for same outcome as Muamba. Just awful
  7. I'm not too fussed by commentators staying neutral in international competitions. Savage is just an annoying arse.
  8. It's like they think "talks a lot" is the same thing as "talks sense".
  9. I have never been able to understand why he has been able to blag a career as a pundit/commentator.
  10. I can't see Wales getting out of their group, but I'm hoping they can. Would love England to play Scotland and Wales in this tournament.

    They have their own anti-racism gesture. They will take the knee as an act of solidarity with England due to the booing.
  12. Nessun dorma - bringing back memories of 1990.
  13. I don't know anything else about the photo, but I like to imagine they are playing Bristol Rovers and the keeper is thinking "these idiots aren't going to get anywhere near me, might as well have a fag".

    Sorry, BLM have already taken that phrase and Scotland are therefore supporting Marxism and defunding the police.

    The only relevant question is what do the players/manager say they are doing it for? Anything else is just somebody else's opinion. It's not up to you, Les Ferdinand, the BBC or "the fans" (it's only a small proportion of fans booing) to tell the England players why they are doing it. I'm out of this thread now. It's just nothing but going around in circles.

    There are plenty of problems with that article. It assumes the writer knows more about the intentions than the players themselves for instance. I just can't be arsed to argue anymore, believe whatever you want.

    No they didn't do it because of the organisation (which one are you talking about, there are loads of BLM groups). Taking the knee started in sport before either the phrase black lives matter or any organisations that name themselves BLM. Black lives matter (the phrase) predates any organisation that uses it (there are loads). Footballers starting doing it as part of the anti-racist demonstrations last year. They didn't do it because of any organisation. The footballers themselves have told us all why they are doing it. Why is this so hard to understand?

    Taking the knee predates the BLM organisation. Black lives matter as a phrase predates any BLM organisations (there are loads of them). The players have said they are not doing it due political reasons. How many more times does all this have to be said? So if a BLM organisation takes the knee, nobody else can do it without being associated with a BLM group? Are you sure that's the way you want to go with these things? Because there are all sorts of gestures, phrases and logos that we can link with groups you'd disagree with.....

    Taking the knee is not owned by any BLM organisation and predates them all. The players have told us, repeatedly, why they are doing it. What more do you need?

    Have ANY players been vilified by the press for not taking the knee? Have Brentford been vilified? The Mail and Sun have been pretty against taking the knee, so it's quite weird for you to pretend the press are somehow behind players taking the knee. A cricket players tweets have nothing to do with this discussion. As for the "nanny state", it's your side that is demanding people stop doing something. It's your side that assumes they know what other people are thinking. I agree on the brainwashing, but I fear you are way too far gone to realise what has been done to you.

    It's for the England team to decide for themselves? They already have! The team decided to take the knee. They have explained why. What right wing people think it means or what left wing people think it means is irrelevant.

    No knee

    In some cases that is true. But at the moment the two groups are: Group 1: "BOOOOOO!!!! STOP IT!!!! MARXISM!!!!" Group 2: "Let the players decide for themselves" Which group sounds more brainwashed?

    Muddle things by bringing up the England squads intent? The England squads intent is the only important thing. And they have been crystal clear about it. Arguing over what people write on the Internet, or what posts people press "like" on a forum is the real attempt at muddying things. As for the last bit of your post, you've gone from accusing me of saying everyone that boos is racist (because I liked a post with a link in) to saying I can see how the right are using it to their advantage. You didn't even say "far right", just "right". Are you saying that the right are racists? I am not in denial about the left's political "involvement" with any of this. Of course the left will be trying to gain political capital from it. So what? That's nothing to do with the England team, they have zero control over what random people write on the Internet.

    Yes, really. I know my own mind better than you and I can confirm that I don't think everyone that booed is a racist.

    It's pretty obvious you like to assume you know what other people think. And it's pretty obvious that you are wrong.
