World Cup 2010

Recommended Posts

No, I don't CARE that they're English. I can keep Football separate from Music. You can't. Fair enough.

So you think it would be perfectly ok to be a Lynyrd Skynyrd fan and go to a Lynyrd Skynyrd board and mock an American sports loss and start a post like "Hey America......."?

I would feel a twat if I did that.

I have yet to meet an Englishman who rues the unfairness of the 1966 WC final . Are you the one ?

I actually don't think it was a goal in 1966 but it was very close call and sometimes when you play it, well it actually looks in. It was a tight call and back in those days very understandable it was given.

No so the obvious 3 ft over the line goal today where NOBODY thought it wasn't a goal except for the officials.

I have yet to meet an Englishman who rues the unfairness of the 1966 WC final . Are you the one ?

(wow, cutting and pasting IS easy !

How many Englishmen have you met and do you bring up 1966 every time you meet an Englishman in order to see if they think the goal in 1966 was a bad call or not?

I suspect most Englishmen you have ever met do not even talk about 1966. I don't think I have ever mentioned the 1966 World Cup to any foreigner I have ever met in my entire life (and I've travelled to all continents except Antarctica).

Hell, I haven't even mentioned Maradona's Hand of God goal to any foreigner I have ever met and that was more recent.

You seem to think all Englishmen you meet should rue a wrongly given goal in the 1966 World Cup final and that if they don't then it's a terrible thing. Is that what you mean?

But that's because you have an inability to separate the nationality of a musician from Sports.

How can you not identify Led Zeppelin with being English? How can you not identify The Beatles with being English? How can you not identify Lynyrd Skynyrd with being American?

Geez, how can you not identify Shakira with being Columbian? How can you not identify Julio Iglesias with being Spanish? How can you not identify Rammstein with being German?

Etc etc????

We're on a FAN forum with fans of all nationalities.

A fan forum for an ENGLISH band. :unsure:

That doesn't mean anything to you? What a plank.

We're not a "send messages to Robert plant" board as you seem to think we are.

You said "Hey England". So why wouldn't Robert Plant..who is English and a football fan....be included in that? I'm sure the members of LZ have perused these boards at some time.

Just man up and admit you include the likes of Robert Plant when you made your address and dont try and wriggle out of it.

I'm on fan forums of other bands (some American) where many fans take pot shots at US culture, economic or political policies in sweeping general terms, and yet I have NVER seen a response along the lines of yours a la "Maynard wouldn't appreciate that", or "do you include James in that thought "

Don't believe you.

If you were African-America and I said "as you stuff watermelon and fried chicken down your throat" would that be innocuous ?

I have no idea. I am not aware of any specific correlation with watermelons and fried chicken to African-Americans. I've been to America though and I have seen white Americans eat both so its not something I personally would automatically associate with African-Americans. White Americans don't eat fried chicken and watermelons???? :o

I wouldn't take offence if some foreigner mentioned me drinking tea. I like tea and I drink it. Its part of being English to be associated with drinking tea, just like it's part of being Italian to be associated with eating pasta.B)

Settle down now, Toscano. We all love you Italians really, especially after gracing us with all those beautiful Ducatis over the years.

I hear they're even more revered in Italy. You know why? Cos they really came in handy whenever your boys retreated from the Front Line :P

Steady now. I stopped myself from any mentions of cowardice, white flags on white backgrounds and tanks with 1 forward gear and 27 in reverse.......and kept it to just pasta. :D

I'm really interested in Toscano's experiences where he says he's never 'met' an Englishman who doesn't rue the decision in the 1966 World Cup final. I'm wondering if he goes up to every Englishman he meets, gets his clipboard and pen and paper out and questions them on the 1966 World Cup.

Bizaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaare! :o

WW2 is over.

With America helping out, England "won"

Then you rebuilt Germany.

Now you buy their cars.

Eat Italian food and go there for a wee bit o sunshine and a break from your miserable island.

Buy Japanese products made in China.

Congratulations !

:D

Yeah right. And smile indulgently when our women get harassed by oleaginous pervs.

With you on the food though, Tosscano. And I think it might have been Wayne Rooney's downfall. Here he is last summer, after two weeks on Lake Como:

What toscano and most Germans tend to forget about 66 is that the second German goal right on 90 mins was also highly contensious, the freekick didnt look like it was deserved and there was a potential offiside(lineman raised flag and way overruled) and a handball.

When it comes to club football I always take the veiw that things average out in the end but thats over a season of 40 or so games where one match carrys no more importance than another. During a knockout event with a limated number of games every 4 years theres potential for some sides to come off alot worse than others.

We certainly didnt look like winning the WC but then again neither did the Italians vs Australia in 06 when they got helped out by a questionable pen. Sad fact is that dispite all the hype its only the truely dominant sides like Brazil in 1970 and 2002 that don't need a large slice of luck to win a WC.

I actually think if anything England don't put enough stock in the effect such incidents can have and direct too much criticism at the team. If theres one thing worse than what the prem has done to footballers is what its done to fans, they've become whiney bitches ever looking for a scapegoat. Some criticism is good but when its a constant witchunt decisioms are made based on public opinion rather than professional wisdom and players end up terrifed of being the "next southgate" in pen shootouts.

Hey Dan, you're a funny guy sometimes, but I'm not American so I really have no idea why you're directing Redskins and holocaust type comments at me. You need to find a different windmill.

Hi 'toscano'

My mistake, i thought Orange County and CA was a dead give away, just as well i don't prime the guidance systems for nuclear warheads anymore i suppose, as we wouldn't be having this conversation would we? :o:lol:

Put it down to an unusual and uncontrollable urge to have a go at an "American", for i have no other reason for my stupidity, i certainly have nothing personal against you me ole matey. ;) And yes, you can take that as an apology. :beer:

Retards, Danny

PS, Only "sometimes" ah? i must do better, my old teacher told me that in 1966, what a coincidence hey? :D

Hi again 'toscano'

Please take no notice of all this witty banter from the fans of defeated world cup teams, i can assure you it is all in jest, now if i can place an order for Italian Food with you please?

I'll have the entire menu, :o with a side order of Double Chips, :D well i am am Englishman you know? and we English have Chips with everything, and as I'm called BIGDAN by all who know me i thought a Double, or even a Large Order (whichever is the biggest :P) would be appropriate. ;)

Regards, Danny

Hi 'toscano'

I love a man with a sense of humour, even a sense of humor will do. :o:lol:

Its "Wise" Dan, as i have no love for "Cockles" if you get my meaning? A bit cryptic but i think you might get it, now wheres my Fries Mario? :o:lol:

Regards, Danny

PS, Great World Cup though, but i think that changing the ball has let everybody down, and anyone caught diving or cheating should be sent to the front line in Afghanistan to fight alongside real HERO'S, you hear me Private Last Class Ronaldo? :lol:

PSS, Good luck to the Germans, you did us without resorting to cheating or diving, and i never thought i would ever be able to say that. :beer:
