Lets All Get Behind Our Boys Tonight - Official England Appreciation Only !

So tonight is Englands first game and i think its gonna be a little tougher than expected as the Yanks are no mugs. So lets have a little appreciation for our boys out there and hope we stuff em bigtime. The yanks always think theyre bigger and better than us in every way... so lets get behind our team and show them whats what.

Will be down my local from 4pm to get into the spirit... a big cheer of 'bring it on!' goes out to all the guys. So show a little support as we finally get our campaign started... been waiting for this for ages now !!

Cmon !

Yep i know that silly :-P

But im hoping our neighbours will be joining in the party as i would for them.

My step dad is Welsh lol... because they never get into anything his second choice is England so hopefully the more the merrier :-)

Seen this on FaceBook last Night...

"The Government of the UK is worried that men's willies are getting smaller! To find outhow great the problem is, they have asked all men with penises smaller than three inches to put a white flag with a red cross on their car or their house! Please post to your status to help the Government survey....."

Ps just off topic... Most England fans always use the 'British Bulldog'.... is there such a thing as the 'English Bulldog' or is it the 'English Bull Terrier'.... or are they the same LOL !

None of my mates do, we all have the England flag.....plus I have yet to see a Brit flag flying from cars or hanging from windows in Bristol yet :thinking:

Only Brit flag I've seen recently is the BNP leaflets shoved through me door over the election :w00t:

A few of the lads i see down the pub have England tattoos with the British Bulldog on.

I suppose it stems back to the time of Churchill etc... when these shores were in unity and we all fought together. Britain was under one rule and we actually achieved something lol.

PS i have the England flag outside my house, and yep i suppose a bit of a fail putting that piccy up first... but hey id cheer for Scotland, Wales or N Ireland if they were playing the Jerrys for example... but i guess thats just me :-/

I watch both Football and Rugby (Union). One thing about Rugby players though that puts the above Football players, is that they don't try to win Oscars when they get a slight knock from another player. Let's face it, Football players have become big girl's blousers. Will be watch our BGBs tonight

I wish that was true - Australia should put 20 on us.

The Ireland - NZ game was killed after Heaslip got red-carded.

Hope you all enjoy the game tonight and get a result against the Yanks. Our colonial cousins always need a wee reminder that not everything is better in the land of Hope & Glory.

Of course, i have to admit that an England defeat would raise a small smile to see the look on the faces of the Ian Wrights of this world but i would rather see you do well.

Only difference is that Scotland and Scottish domestic teams in general are really poor. Had a few Europa cup runs in recent years but nothing to shout about. While we have a lot of "good" players that will run riot in the Championship and a few Premiership players, England are blessed by some genuine talent.

As a footballer i think Rooney is amazing and i hope he turns it on tonight. And i like Cole and Johnson as fullbacks.

So, Come On England (well, for tonight at least:whistling:).

Some of the best beers ups ive had abroad when watching footy have been with the Scots... great fans ;-)

Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight'
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming.
And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen, thro' the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream;
'Tis the star-spangled banner: oh, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash'd out their foul footstep's pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh, thus be it ever when free men shall stand,
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation;
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Power that has made and preserved us as a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust";
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

:-D

We don't expect much and just decide to have some fun regardless. Unfortunately a few idiots (and it was only a small percentage) spoiled our reputation in Manachester a few years ago.

I remember watching an England- Argie game in a huge barn down south and it was a great night (until the inevitable penalty misses)

I know, i was only jesting with you. Spain have looked awesome recently and i can't see past them. But this is a England appreciation thread and i didn't want to spoil the mood

I actually want to see England win tonight. Can't face the USA winning at soccerball. I was over in the states when the beat Spain and instead of seeing it as a one off shock , they actually believed that they were now the official best team in the world. I remember getting really angry.

What will other fellow Scots think of us.? Supporting England tonight but i imagine Wright, Motson et al will soon annoy me with their rants.
