    As much as I would like to annoy the Scots I think I'd rather Iceland win the World Cup than England, a proper team, most of them not multi-millionaires.

    Arnason isn't Icelandic, he's Swedish

    Why?

    I like them.

    They're like Viking warriors of old.

    England have been boring me to death for most of the last 30 years.

    They certainly did. Great start for them, but it's a tough group - they still need to beat Nigeria or Croatia to have a chance of progressing

    Why, why?, really, just one point, regardless of what England have been like for how many years, they're England, your team, that's why.
    I like Iceland, they're not my team though, and who gives a shyte about whether they have a viking ancestry, get a grip.

    It is very strange that a lot of English football fans these days sort of disown their national team.
    It's as though they are saying that if we can't get anywhere near the quarter or semi finals anymore then they're nothing to do with me.
    It certainly is pathetic because people should support their national team regardless of how they are doing. Have a whinge by all means but don't disown them

    It's like if RUFC got themselves relegated to div 2 then some fans would claim not to support them. This does happen but it's just not right....thick and thin and all that.
    There was someone who posts on this board said he'd had enough and wasn't going again around November and look what a season we had and where we ended up. Hilarious

    I thought you left-wingers didn't believe in nations and borders?

    In any case I can support whichever team I want for whatever reasons I want to.

    I believe in my Nation and my borders, planet Earth calling great_fire, and now you've brought politics into it, how ironic that a bloke wh hates immigrants and has a warped view of olde world England doesn't actually support his national team...like i said, pathetic....

    Well it usually is the left who say that waving the England flag or celebrating St George's Day is "racist" isn't it?

    No, not ever, just in your warped mind, i've got my England flag up in my back garden, on a makeshift flagpole, it goes up for every tournament, usually down after the first round....

    That flag is for English folk, just because it's been hijacked by fascist right wing muppets as a political tool and folk oppose that doesn't make them hate it...

    It's the left who make everything political and about race/ gender/ sexual identity.

    Hence why the BBC News site is obsessed with identity politics rather than actual news.

    Political correctness is actually applied Critical Theory which is a type of Marxism that developed in academic circles.

    The point of PC/ CT/ Marxism is to destroy everything; capitalism, borders, nations, the family, even history, and then "rebuild".

    Post #12....

    Regardless of politics, i'm a left winger who ardently supports my country and it's flag, unlike yourself, plainly, what a great patriot you are.

    Whilst the left would no doubt applaud an England World Cup win as a victory for "multiculturalism" and modern multi-ethnic Britain and all that (as seen when France won in 1998) it would also occur under a Conservative government and therefore could also be seen as a Tory win could it not?

    Certainly a boost to the popularity of the government in the short-term.
