Ouch 🤣

When you see something like that it makes you think about stuff and I think its an appropriate time to also say how positive this forum is for myself and my mental health and mood.  It’s a great place

The problem with the gesture itself (in my opinion) is that there are no concrete goals. 'End racism' is a noble idea, but how do we know when that's been achieved? Can it be achieved? I wonder i

Really classy, well thought out and worded statement from the FA. Really eliminates any reason to boo the players apart from the fact that you're a racist. Good job. 

I'm sure anyone booing at this point is channelling their inner Woodgate with his infamous "The table is lying" quote/mentality.

Picture the scene...

FA Statement: "English football is very clear that it does not view this as being aligned to a political organisation or ideology".

England "Fan" that boos: "The statement is lying"..."Boooooooooo!".

It's coming out from all ends in the camp, even outside as Scotland have said they'll join us in our game doing the same thing just for our game as solidarity with the message we're actually sending.

It's like I said before, the only people left perpetuating this as what people say they're booing it for are the people who will boo.

Notably the only idiotic response I read in the quick glance at the top 5 comments I saw is an anti-vaxxer. These are the people who want the footballers to pander to their idiocy.

On a scale of 1-10 how excited is everyone for the game tomorrow?

I'm probably at a 7 or 8.

I like watching England at tournament footy but I'd prefer watching Boro play at Rotherham so that always kind of knocks 1-2 off, certainly at the group stage.

After today, watching football for joy feels like it knocks another 2 or 3 off. That may go tomorrow if the news remains positive.

EDIT - I forgot to mention, I prefer watching England football at the pub or at least with family/friends. Not being able to do that certainly knocks a couple more off.

So right now about a 3-4

Hopefully the news stays positive and that excitement gets bumped up again! Must admit watching the Belgium game wasn't half as enjoyable as it would have been.

Luckily we've managed to book a pub table for me and 5 of my mates, so we'll be in a pub, but it won't quite be the same as the WC.

Edit: Just to clarify WC = World Cup 😂

Do you normally watch football on the toilet like?

Watching England at a major tournament has always felt by far and away the best part of football. The atmosphere and feeling is unmatched for me, although since the first tournaments I remember 2004/06 results haven’t been great

The first one I remember properly was 2002. Have the vivid memories of my mum taking me and my sister down the pub on the way to school to watch the first half of games at about 7 in the morning*. 😂

*2002 was in Korea/Japan so the time difference was in full effect.

I'm so happy to read considered opinions on the subject, i must admit I've been lazy and only getting my boro chat from the Gazette website comments sections recently which are jam packed with very very dubious posts about politics and Marxism and subverting everything that is english by taking the knee.

 

I'm very interested to see what happens, if an england player scores then takes the knee. The perma outraged booing mob will be conflicted and so I'm sure it's going to happen. 

 

Reading comments here has restored my faith fair play to oneboro, I will not stray again... 

 

living in NZ now so I'm excited about the euros, but not enough to watch at 1am with work in the morning! 

 

in the past I was always excited, then we'd do rubbish, so I lost hope, then just fudge through the group stages and start to look up for it in the knockout phase getting me excited again only to crash out in controversial or underwhelming performance circumstances.

 

now it's fair to say I get more excited as the tournament wears on, always with a shield around my heart in case we get knocked out by a hand of god or uncounted goal that bounced a yard behind the line. we had a bit of luck in '66, but I think we've paid for it ever since.

 

a young squad with a lot of potential and a very intelligent manager, I'm hoping we put on a show for everyone.

 

UTB and come on england!

Wtf are you an amoeba? I was doing my A Levels in 2002 and missed most of the England/Brazil game!

    • I think Tav is what he is, a skilled footballer with good ball control but lacking a footballing brain which has held him back from making the next grade. He is useful and can beat defenders but you never get off your seat watching him and when he lines up to shoot nobody expects him to score indeed it's probably more a case of wondering just how far off target it's going to end up. For me the problem is supporters having unrealistic expectations from him. He's 22 years old, his "development" is behind him, at best he might hone what he has but I would be amazed if he suddenly became a world beater. He has reached his level, with maturity he may refine some flaws but his decision making is the weakest part of his game and if your head isn't telling you what you should do in the next phase of play at 22 then it isn't going to change anytime soon.  In short he is decent at this level, no more no less, with a tendency to believe his own hype which I suspect is one of the main drivers behind such poor decision making.    
    • I have a cousin called Ruaraidh (Rory), Gaelic names get proper wacky!
    • =6th on goals scored. Missed a week too! Somehow find myself just above the relegation zone!!    not going my way this season!!
    • I actually think he’s improved significantly since he was dropped for that one game a while back. 
    • It’s not necessarily criticism (the way I see him), it’s more frustration. He has everything to be one of the best players in the league. He just needs to improve his end product. Personally think he should be getting double figures for goals and assists every season with relative ease with the ability he has. It’s great that he’s a threat and getting in shooting positions, but unless he actually improves his end product it’s not really helping the team. Just think he could really reach that next level with a bit of composure. Saying that, if he did improve his composure, he’d be a premier league player - quite easily.
