Read the words of La Marseillaise. Horrible bloodthirsty stuff. !
Off topic but just a bit, this is a Portuguese ad campaign for the health service: 75% of calls to 112 are not emegencies
Give the betting odds.
The thing is, England are currently down at 5:1 to win the world cup according to the bookmakers, so mindless yobbery tonight could result in the fans missing Sunday's game.
For those who don't understand betting odds, what this means is if you bet say £100 on England, you lose a hundred quid.
and for balance
Yes, it's not from this year but I doubt things have changed that much sadly.
Not all football fans are yobs, but most yobs are football fans,
I am sick to death of that bloody song!
The neighbour's getting angry!
By your account, your neighbours have had a relatively easy life, compared to most. They're bound to get angry when it doesn't always go their way.
But I doubt they'll be trashing the neighbourhood. Football yobs are just folk who latched onto a sport for an opportunity to express their anger about the lives they live. Unable to succeed in a career, unable to play football, unable to build meaningful relationships with anyone except other football yobs.
If they weren't so thick, they be be able to earn a living as criminals.
Note I'm talking about football yobs, rather than football fans, but it's a fine line that divides them, once the mania gets a grip.
I fear for the petunias.
Can anyone explain the meaning of 'football's coming home', has a football been left somewhere? Grammatically it makes no sense, I hate football and will be glad when TV is back to normall!!
I could, but there's no need to.
It won't be coming home. Not this year anyhow.
Ain't it marvelous? I've spent all night trying to get my grandfather's waistcoat on ebay, just manage to get it listed, turn on the wireless, only to find that England let me down. What's it all about?
Over here we're back to doing buses for Bonfire Night.
Better than the dirge sung by Ireland.
It was invented in England, supposedly but Hungary stole it in the fifties and then it was passed around Brazil, Germany, Italy, Uruguay and others. Now it will be back in England. It won't be for a while yet.
You could try singing "dolazi kući" as an antidote. Apparently that's Croatian for 'It's coming home'.
Today's the day!
To what extent does the apparent total loss of news values contribute to the overall problem?
Last night's 6 o'clock news on BBC TV spent the first twelve minutes on a football match which hadn't happened.
Are the media covering it all up? There's nothing in the news about any violence.
