Don't think cheating or booing players for no reason is an exclusively English thing. Just needs to be called out wherever it happens.

it has been a good 30 years since the days when British players didn't dive, and I can't think of any international team which doesn't have a good share of players who do exactly the same (or worse)...anyway, just a few more hours. Come on England. 

 

This is probably why I can't take football/soccer seriously. A sport (or let's say, particular leagues, i.e. most European and Latin America ones, and in North America too, not as sure about elsewhere but probably...) where faking injury and general dramatics is not only tolerated but widely expected and celebrated is, to me anyway, just kinda pathetic. They might as well don big bouffant powder wigs and stick a broom between their legs making clip clop sounds when they jog around with runny coke noses, it's just as ridiculous. I can't explain just how much it totally deflates the (televised big league versions of the) sport for me.

 

There, I said it. 

 

But if you're into it, cool, enjoy, I don't begrudge anyone else.

I've ordered pineapple on pizza in fully authentic Italian restauarants many a time.  Didn't realise there was some kind of tabu. 

 

Ditto. Also in Italy. I once asked an Italian pizzeria worker (young guy working the till, who spoke very good English, at a small town "traditional" sort of pizza place) what he thought about pineapple on pizza, because in the Anglo world at least it was a popular badge of pizza snobbery. He shrugged and said basically even if it wasn't traditional, he had no problems, except he would prefer not to use low quality canned stuff but fresh actual sliced up fruit.

And they smoke all the weed, Luke😂

That explains a lot. Once, I visited a local match in Montevideo in the famous Centannario stadium where the first world cup in 1930 was held. The fans were singing 90 minutes straight. The singing was more important than watching the game 😳. I was the gringo.

Ha Luke! I once watched  Boca Juniors against Independiente in Buenos Aires ( fortunately with an Argentine friend!). I think it was the Cup Final. I probably permanently suffered from partial loss of hearing as a consequence! It was loud!!😂

I was also the token gringo!!

 

Found it:

Have to laugh! No sound!!😂

PS: it wasn't a Cup Final.

Remember that game. England completely played into Holland's hands. Big England defenders like Tony Adams  were used to heading long high balls away all day, so Holland exploited their lack of mobility and played it in behind them. Van Basten, who was a master at dribbling around defenders, had a field day.

We put a Gerrman flag and an English flag in our windows. The German flag has vanished (ha ha) but I am proud to say my English flag is still hanging there.
