Cool Re: English Football Idiots

This post has gone beyond my wildest dreams. Keep it coming. Its magic. One slight mention of anything against the English promotes the most fantastic of responses. Amazing. I think, perhaps, you have missed the point entirely. Football Yobs are everywhere. Even here. These people blight the Nation I have fought for and seen and held the hand of comrades whom have lost their lives defending. You really have no idea. Honestly. I am a quiet family man who keeps himself to himself. My job is, and has been, most discomforting, from Pristina to Safwan and Basrah, and I prefer to keep it that way. I simply quoted that some yobs had breakfast in my proximity and off ya pop with yer sectarian nationalistic rants. Very interesting indeed. Nuf said.

Personally *notes time stamp* I think you're drunk off your skull.

But it is an interesting thread nonetheless!

I'm not English.

I would shake your hand and shout you many beers for the service that you have given to us and to your country.

Apologies if your post was a simple quote, it sounded more like a rant to me..........and it still does.

I didn't leave the Highlands of Scotland to be confronted by these types of low life. I can only assume that these are the same people who by Walkers crisps and Pot Noodles from the various English shops knocking about the Auckland area.

We should have a new game on Expats. For example, spotting some clown in an England Top , 10 Points.

Some clown in an England top with a Bull Terrier : 20 Points. ( There is a guy in Browns Bay who does just this.)

I felt totally embarrassed to be British. Not a nice feeling when I have completed 22 Years in HM Forces, 4 Tours in Iraq, 1 in Afghan, 1 in Kosovo and numerous others in between, and that i'm now serving within the NZDF.

Anyone else been subjected to this mentality ??

Ah, but you didn't simply post that at all, you wanted to play games and slag off the English over afew loud mouths, then you went on to praise yourself and are still continuing to do so.

Question Re: English Football Idiots

I have no idea. I think he missed the point like so many others. I was hoping for some serious debate. But alas, not. I think the English quote angered more than my original post intended. I am half English, half Lithuanian, brought up and educated in Scotland. I hold no ethical boundaries. This has gone far enough.
