We all know he'll watch it. Not a dig at him but I can guarantee he will and he will post about it or watch highlights.

Let it go DD

He’d rather not engage....understandably, given his earlier comments....which are also credible (if not totally believably true)...he’ll sneak-a-peek :?

You would think pro slavery and Black Lives Matter are incompatible but here we are

Which is admirable. Im not saying it isn't.

But then boycott the Olympics due to the comments about disabled people and the holocaust.

Don't wear clothes made with child labour or sweat shops.

Don't eat Nestle or use Apple.

He may already do that so fair oxf*rd.

Simmops with the whataboutism to have a dig at Ian's stance.

Let's all undermine anyone who shows even an iota of principle shall we

No idea what aboutism means but I already said fair play for his stance before but why only boycotting it now and not everything else that's worse

I haven't watched the Olympics, but not for any reason other than I'm not really interested. One old guy making inappopriate comments equating to systemic modern slavery :|

I buy very little from Nestle and it was nothing at all for quite a few years... I believe the recommendation on boycotting them is their coffee, and I don't drink coffee.

I haven't bought anything from Apple, though that's mainly because I don't want to be an iTwat.

You don't know me dd.

NathStPaul Got to laugh at anyone saying they'll boycott the World Cup. Empty words. You'll be watching it and you know it.


I'm afraid I won't.....even if Wales go. I just won't be interested. I stopped off in Qatar a few years ago, its a repressive/sexist/homophobic/dictorial state that p*ssed on the integrity of sport when they bribed their way to getting the competition. FIFA weren't much bette. The fat swede was thrown to the lions to save the organisation and their own arses.
It's odd when you leave that country that all the Qutarian women rush to the bog on the plane when leaving and put on western clothes and makeup and take off their traditional repressive dress. Now why is that?

Sorry but I'm just not interested.

Gutted that away fans aren't allowed in for Hungary or Poland. Had a great trip planned for that :x

FIFA have written to the UKG requesting exemptions from quarantine for players due to play in red list countries following the move by the PL and EFL refusing to sanction their release.

Given a large percentage of players are apparently not vaccinated, would be a very dangerous precedent if they cave.

Ridiculous isn't he. Beginning to think the money United are spending on his transfer and wages will look like a bargain in a few months time.

And out of nowhere too. The only sides that they have beaten in the last two years are New Zealand and Andorra.

He quite literally played against Ireland on his own for 95 minutes, Portugal were utter garbage as a team and had Ireland won the game they would have more than deserved it.

I don't want to go over the tired old Messi v Ronaldo debate but for me last night is a clear example why Ronaldo is the better overall player. He has that ability to drag those around him to victory and lead by example. Messi on the other hand is technically brilliant but lacks that killer instinct and leadership quality.

Think I am right in saying he has never scored against England.

I don't want to* go over that debate either, but no-one has more goals or assists in top flight football since Messi made his debut, than Messi. He can't really have done more than that to 'lead'.

Messi's La Liga stats last season are extraordinary.

Might be because he has never played against England. :wink:
