      Beaten by Belgium. Not even a real country. But great beer and chocolate – and now this. Thank you, God.

      1. Spaghetti Hoop

        Belgium IS a country. One of two halves, hosted many pitch invasions in the past, not great in midfield.

    No hard border, single customs entity, operating under EU rules and regulations. Looks a lot like the British Taoiseach has caved on everything and convinced her cabinet to go along with her. UKIP, Mogg and muintir Sasamach must be raging.

          I may appear a wee bit curt,
          But seeing three lions in the dirt,
          Will prove those Brits were just daydreaming,
          As Harry’s boys are sent home screaming,
          A final end to their fantastical flirt.

            Where’s your book report Bernie :) -its late, Ronan Farrow,War on Peace: The End of Diplomacy and the Decline of American Influence was fantastic,highly recommended.
            There’s an Irish dive bar where I will be,called The Shagwon in Montauk,frequented by commercial fishermen,landscapers,contrators,artists,drug dealers and one English supporter,when he cheered last time the entire place went silent-he was quiet for rest off the game.
            Should be a good game Bernie-Ha en trevlig dag!

            Hi Johnny, I haven’t had much free time this week so haven’t read anything of substance really – I must order War On Peace, the synopsis is rather enticing, thanks for that.

            Nice varied clientele in your watering hole there, love those types of bars with a good mix – I could live without the drug dealer though ;-)
            Remember to drop over a box of Kleenex to John Smith before the kick off.

            Ta hand om dig, min vän.

            Joey, no froth lol really looking forward to Wednesday, actually, I enjoy the banter and slagging.

            Spent many of my formative years in London, have the same running commentry with my brother’s who still live there.So there, put that in your peace pipe and choke on it ;-)

            British Isles! LOL!

            If you hurry you might just catch the last autogyro to send that letter by aeromail to the Prussian consulate in Siam.

    1. SOQ

      It was the only logical outcome and May would have failed as a leader if she didn’t take this route. It is fine and well for political zealots to rant and rave but the impact of a hard Brexit on British Businesses would have been in some cases terminal. The subsequent blow back would have left the Tories resigned to the history books.

    2. MaryLou's ArmaLite

      She has gotten her cabinet to agree a position, now all she has to do is convince the UK and the EU parliaments. Simples

      1. Giggidygoo

        I think she has got her cabinet, for the moment, to support her ideas (which aren’t even thought out fully and found to be workable) in a similar vein to our own politicians “I have full confidence in…’ line. Optics. Added of course was the long walk down the Chequers driveway to hail a taxi if ministers didn’t agree.
        Her ‘Withdrawal Bill’? “We will be publishing a White Paper in the coming weeks setting out more details on this Bill.” Same type of kicking the can that our lot do.

    1. Yep

      Yes, Ron is the real villain with his terrible joke. The world focuses on the lads trapped in a cave cause we all love a good trapped down a something story.

      How often have any of you thought of the hundreds of thousands of Thai children forced in to prostitution?

      But this story….offfft! Live feeds, rescue team fatalities AND they’re a football team DURING a World Cup.

      What a story to chat, tweet and “worry” about. We’re all in this together, yeah?

      1. Janet, I ate my Avatar

        your point being valid does not tender Ron’s quip any more tasteful or funny
        whataboutery

      2. Yep

        It’s Not whataboutery. It’s just pointing out a hypocrisy that I can be guilty of too. It was also more a general rant at people “caring” about these kids because the coverage is constant and it becomes a talking point.

        I think a live feed from outside one of the many brothels recording the scum that use them would be of more use to humanity than this shameful voyeurism.

        I’m not angry at you Janet. BB can go and pop but not you.

          1. Brother Barnabas

            read back over your last two comments

            if you don’t wince at the self-indulgent, self-congratulatory stupidity of them, you’re a bigger fool than even those comments indicate

          2. Yep

            “It’s just pointing out a hypocrisy that I can be guilty of too.”

            Hardly self-congratulatory when I point out that I too can do the same now is it?

            “self-indulgent”….are you even aware of the poo you post on a regular basis? You may think me a fool but you’re fupping delusional if you think you bring anything other than hack jokes that would receive a groan in a Newcastle workmans club in the 70’s.

            Let’s not do this again. I see it going the way it did last time. You missing the point.

          3. Brother Barnabas

            last time? are you referring to the time you suggested the plaintiff in the belfast rape case probably made it up because she was ashamed of her behaviour? or did I miss a more recent instance of gobpoopery from you?

          4. Yep

            Go on there petal. Find where I said she “probably” did. Take your time.

            Sure while I wait tell me how comically big your penis is. Like a Russian sub is it? Cause it goes deep! Like the space shuttle explorer cause Ye know…it explores! Lolfest! Wink wink whacka whacka!

            AAAAHHHH you’re gas…and have really poor reading comprehension. I know I said that before.

    A NATION AWAITS, declares the Grauniad headline. Obviously, it’s talking about England: not Scotland, Wales or the province of Norn Iron.

    1. ReproBertie

      I am sure there are people in the nation of Scotland, the principality of Wales and the province of Northern Ireland who are eagerly awaiting today’s match.

        1. Gabby

          Ulster unionists call it a province. In their cups, Westminster mainstream politicians call it something else. Some of us here call it “that place up there”. And everybody in Cork knows that Donegal is ‘in the South’.

          1. SOQ

            True but referring to NI as a Province is annoying, it is not, it never was, and it never will be.

  3. Ollie Cromwell

    All those poor Irish emigrants who moved to the mainland because their own country let them down are today the equivalent of the designated driver standing in the kitchen eating crisp sandwiches as a fantastic party kicks off in the sitting room.
    I shall be on the turps shortly so won’t be paying any attention to the usual chumps on here whining about lucky England.
    Win or lose,we’re on the booze.
    Enjoy the ignominy of cheering on an ABE country most people on here couldn’t point to on a map.

    1. Giggidygoo

      Quote e few emigrants, let down by their country, from the UK on the mainland too. Mainland Europe that is. Actually, quite a few in the 26 counties too.
      I’m sure Mainland Europe will throw a few crumbs to the UK in return for May’s getting in line.

    2. ReproBertie

      “Win or lose,we’re on the booze.”
      That’s lacking your usual arrogant bombastic tone Ollie. What’s up? Nervous that the three lions may not turnip for the Swedes?

      1. scottser

        I have been reliably informed that lions are in fact leopards. French in origin of course. Indeed the flag of st george originates in genoa. You have to laugh at the ‘english’ all the same..

        1. Bernie

          @ Scottser
          If the three lions are leopards, what’s the story with their football jerseys and the ‘Three lions on a shirt’ song? Or are you being smart?

          Most of the English I’ve worked with dont possess an original, independent thought, so hearing their flag and ‘lions’ are from places far and wide, shouldn’t be that surprising, what a thieving shower.

          1. scottser

            Apparently they paid royalties to genoa for their navy to sail under the protection of the george cross. Its a bit like having a 123.ie banner as your national flag. The new italian pm quipped that he might write to liz asking for the last 250 years arrears the english owe..

          2. Bernie

            Liking the style of the new Italian PM already. He’ll have a job squeezing anything out of Lizzie, that doll’s cashflow is incoming only. A lifetime on benefits, time she was on Jeremy Kyle ;-)

    1. Bernie

      There’s no hate,Topsy, just craic…but while we’re on the subject, the feckin’ hack of the England supporters – very animated and very topless, not a good look.

      1. Bernie

        Forgot to add that this ‘To Be Decided’ team the English are playing on Wednesday at 7.00pm sound masterful, there’s absolutely no way England will win that match…

  4. Bernie

    Maguire, another part Irish player. If we boiled them all down would there be even one full English player in that team? Playing for England on the backs of how many different nationalities, shouldn’t be allowed ;-)

    DNA testing from now on, only 100% English permitted to play, no more using the creme de la creme of other nations, they’ll soon be on their scrawny arses.

    1. Bernie

      Petey / Peadar, raveling on, pontificating and jabbering are a few more to make a note of. Keep note-taking and we’ll surely have a wee paragraph from you in the foreseeable…
