Three Lions Growl, now let's see you ROAR
« on: June 15, 2012, 09:59:58 PM »

Just watched the England game, both agony and ecstasy.
Draw against France, win against Sweden, the first time we have beaten Sweden in competitive football.
England 1-0, 1-1, Sweden 2-1 England 2-2, 3-2.
Sitting on the edge of my seat.

Come on England!!

Bob it was an exciting if not a great game - I always thought there was something a bit suspect about anyone who doesn't like team games or animals
(that should get a few comments)

I find it rather amusing that those who claim to dislike football are the first to post  on a football thread.
But I don't really care. I enjoy football and will always support my national team.
I don't and wont apologise for supporting football.
We might not be the best in the world but no matter how far we go will always be proud of supporting them.
The same goes for Rugby and any other national team.
Yes I will be watching the England Ladies team playing against Sweden in the qualifiers for the women's European Championships.

Although I am not a fan of football (soccer variety) it is wonderful to see an England team win, especially in a dramatic come from behind victory.
Congratulations !!!!

Hmmmm, I wonder if the fact half the team were wearing pink boots influenced that :kiss:

Good to see Walcott come on later though - soon scared the Swedish defenders with a bit of pace :-))

Now he just needs to remind Cashley Cole that he is the defender and Young is the winger >>:-(

Oh, and Wazza's back for the Ukraine game 8)

My feelings exactly, Bob, but in my case it's Australia. Rugby League or Union, football (soccer), hockey, cricket, basketball, netball, any team sport that is played in our national colours I'll support 100% O0

He has to,
I suppose he has to support someone.
And of course he will quickly swop allegiance to any country.
Typical of some Scots, thankfully most have better sense.

Pity about that though Wullie, in my loft I have an unmade Weisel with a full set of plans, but could I be bothered to find them and photocopy?
I think the Ukrane is a long way to post.

I am a lone Englishman in my own house.
My wife is Scottish, ( the best thing ever to come out of Scotland ), All my children born in Greenock, Inverclyde).
Anyone supporting England very welcome on match days, just bring your own St Georges Cross!!

I remember watching the 66 final in Glasgow at my first Mother-in-law's house with about 8 Scots family members screaming for Germany to win
- when the 3rd and 4th English goals  went in - absolute silence from them - Heaven!!

I have just finished watching 2 Rugby games, New Zealand All Blacks v Ireland, and the Australian Wallabies v Wales. Both New Zealand and Australia won, right on the bell in each case, and I have to say, even as a dedicated and one eyed Aussie supporter that neither team really deserved to win. Both Ireland and Wales were magnificent and definitely did not deserve to lose, especially Wales, who almost had their first win on Aussie soil since 1969. As their captain, Sam Warburton said after the match, "I am absolutely gutted", and he looked it. As an Aussie I'm glad the Wallabies won, and clinched the 3 test series, but I do feel for the men in red because, as I said earlier, they were magnificent.

In an uncanny parallel, the NZ v Ireland game was decided after a Dan Carter drop goal sealed the win for the All Blacks in the final minute of the game. The Irish were a vastly different side to that beaten conclusively last week, and should have won.

I await the result of the South Africa v England game later tonight, our time - surely that won't be such a cliff hanger...will it???

Thats why come Wimbledon my mantra is ABM - anyone but Murray.

I remember being in HMS Neptune when Scotland played Peru in the 1978 world cup.  That was the one that Scotland proclaimed..........we’ll really shake them up, when we win the World Cup, ’cause Scotland are the greatest football team'.  Well I couldnt manage my last pint in the bar as my stomach was still sore from laughing when the third Peru goal went in. It doesnt get any better than that.............well apart from a few days later and the Iran match.  Stuff dreams are made of.  Even outweighed Costa Rica in Italia '90.

You are one of those from north of the border that really does deserve independence. Roll on the day!  >>:-( <*< <*< :police:

As for the rugby, Ireland were superb. A real shame they could not manage the win.

The England football was a good game, but I fear we will have to improve at the back and keep the ball better if we are to go much further...
