I have a question, I know they are out and everything but why does everyone hate England?

I just bring England up because I think that for us argentinians are most "hatred" football rivals are Brazil and England.

I personally love England, though not for its footballers but its musicians!

In England our biggest rivals these days seem to be Germany France and Argentina. No particular order. France likely for locational reasons, Germany and Argentina previous political differences. Oh and the fact that your overweight coach robbed us in "86

Kidding. i dont know. I certainly dont hate it.

In England people like Brazil. Only because they don't like Argentina rather than actually likeing Brazil

Good thing for Uruguay to pass, though the way they won was very Latin American. Mario Kempes in 1978 stopped a ball with his hands, later, the goalie stopped the penalty shot. Argentina was world champion after that.

 

Ps @zexen: What would you do if you had to support either Brazil or England in a world cup final? No cheating.

:P


England

 

What Suárez did is NOT cheating, it's playing football, if I was a coach and a player didn't do that he'd never play under me again, you gotta do your utmost to save the ball from going in specially when it's min 120, it's exactly the same as commiting a professional foul, you do it so your team has another chance, the punishment is fine, Gyan failed the penalty, tough luck. If that were so, all players that ever commited a professional fouls would be cheaters. Fuck that, commiting a foul has to be cheating, right, in the end, it's violating the rules so you get an advantage (cut the advancement), so that player has to be a fucking cheater, right?

Please, the things you gotta read in this site...

So you don't like them being five times world champions, right? :P

 

For the rest of what you wrote, I couldn't agree more. Actually, arguing against it would only mean you don't understand what this game is all about. There are some rules that allow you to do things and some others that stablish penalties when you do them. You are free to do the last if you accept the comsequences: that's not cheating. Actually, that´s legal.

Thats nothing, GAF had a meltdown because of the hand and they said it was cheating and Ghana deserved the win

i really hope your team losses today, not because i hate them or something, but because of your behaviour here, and i want those words to come back and bite you in the ass...

"hate"? Well, I don't hate Ingurland, but it's always fun to see the overblown expectations (probably mostly pushed by the tabloids?) crash landing in reality. England always has big names, which are hyped into heavens, but the last 1-2 decades they just can't seem to play as a team (don't know about the WC/EC before that).
