    And still no Irish will support England in international tournaments but English premiership teams sell out Aviva?

      69.1% of the premier league players are foreign born, 60% of the Liverpool squad itself is foreign born so your point really makes no sense. The premier league is only “english” in the sense that the teams are based and play their games in england, other that that it is simply a another business based in england. So if your point is that supporting an “english” football team means that you should also support the english national team I’m afraid your barking up the wrong tree.

        But Irish people have been supporting English clubs for years – back when the league consisted of mostly British and Irish players – and never shouted for England either

          Conflating support for a ‘local’ team with the national team is obviously disingenuous. No irish person will ever play for england, so what connection is there to base any form of identity or loyalty on? Liverpool, arsenal, man united etc always had afine tradition of fielding irish players, of course they would garner support here..

    It was a stroll.
    Napoli were awful, completely disinterested, I wouldn’t read too much into the scoreline.

    That said… brought my aulfella for a pint on the rooftop on The Marker and he loved it so…
    Allez Allez Allez :)
