Whatever. Pointless trying to reason with idiots. I’ve not made one bit of sense throughout? You are seriously having a laugh! You can’t see how many ironies there are in that one post alone. Typically resorting to swearing when you’ve got nothing left. Pathetic. I’m not interested in what you have to say to be frank but if you start again with your divisive nonsense I will be saying something. Go with care now. And god bless.June 13, 2021 at 6:25 pm #208580
‘you have not spoken the slightest bit sence’. 😂😂😂😂June 13, 2021 at 7:12 pm #208581
After yesterday’s upsetting events with the Denmark lad ( great news he appears to be over the worst and progressing ) it was nice to get some positivity on the English football front. First the applause and cheering when England took the knee more then drowned out the racists booing and then the players have delivered a great result and deserved win on a boiling hot afternoon. Happy fans, beer being drunk, England starting well and a smile put back on people’s faces, what’s not to like. More of the same please against the Scots.June 13, 2021 at 7:14 pm #208582
I did notice that before the England game kicked off an element of the crowd were booing the Croatian National Anthem.
A good indication that these boo-boys are not anti-Marxist protestors but merely pond life.June 13, 2021 at 7:51 pm #208583BloodyRubbishIronParticipantOffline

What you don’t realise, NI, is that the Croatian national anthem is actually a Marxist hymn left over from its Yugoslavian days. The crowd were obviously booing because of that.
Also, nice to see the boos rather muted. I don’t know why though, since the self-declared spokespeople of the ‘common man’ all said that they would not take such nonsense and let their feelings known.June 13, 2021 at 7:56 pm #208584BloodyRubbishIronParticipantOffline

Aw, upset the racists were drowned out are we? Quite happy to accept others opinions and frequently do. Not from a bunch of nonsensical racists though thanks. You’ve not lost the argument though because you never presented a coherent one in the first place. Stop crying man!
Deerey, I have never presented an argument as I started by asking a reasonable question, however people like you took some form of dislike to it and continued to call me and some others on this forum racist. Well you know what nothing could be further from the truth and you have made a complete c–t of yourself. I have no further interest in what you have to say because you have not spoken the slightest bit sence throughout. Cant be bothered with bigots like you.
I think an issue is that the original question comes across as loaded, especially when there is some controversy over it and it seemed like you were inferring a lack of choice on the players’ behalf.
This being the internet and such has allowed confusion and frustration to simmer and Deerey feels frustrated by what he seems as another attempt to degrade something well meaning and you seem frustrated by what you see as a question being unanswered and people talking about what they felt was another dig at this.June 13, 2021 at 7:59 pm #208585
And great to see Raheem MBE, who has suffered more than most from the racist idiots, score the winner and have great pride in taking the knee and then represent HIS country.
Bloody Marxist!!June 13, 2021 at 8:36 pm #208588
Yeah, all that booing must have motivated him 😂June 13, 2021 at 8:41 pm #208589
One England supporter said on Sky News (hardly biased) that he’s had to nudge one or two booers and ask ‘what are you doing that for?’. They don’t have an answer for him, just tagging along brainlessly while some devious racists orchestrate it. Well what a surprise, what with it originating at The Den 😂June 13, 2021 at 10:27 pm #208595Yossarian LivesParticipantOffline

Just a bump to say how great it was to see both England and Germany united in “taking to the knee” last night.
Also nice to see Neuer and Kane wearing rainbow captain’s armbands for Pride Month.
Well done all round.July 1, 2021 at 4:27 am #209471Lord KitchenerParticipantOffline

Laurence Fox must be having a nightmare Euro’s, what did he say before the Croatia game, oh yeah, ” If England take the knee in the Euro’s I want them.to lose “. Well with England, Scotland, Germany, Belgium and Portugal all taking the knee so far it’s not going too well for you Mr Fox is it? You right wing racist piece of shit. 😂😂😂July 1, 2021 at 10:24 am #209479Just IronParticipantOffline

IA .. don’t lose sight of the fact that the case for ‘the Knee’ is predicated on the age old struggle not to dehumanise, label and insult those who in various ways appear ‘other.’July 1, 2021 at 11:09 am #209485
Who has scored the most goals for England – Sterling, 3 out of 4.
Who has suffered the most from racist abuse during the tournament? Sterling.
Yet we still have jokers on here defending the booing, and then trying to claim that they and those that are booing are not motivated by racism!! Anyone that disagrees with them is a Marxist. BPG keeps denying that there is any racist abuse.
Well done Raheem MBE, keep showing the haters that you can rise above their mindless hatred. Continue to represent YOUR country with pride and show up these haters for what they are!!!July 1, 2021 at 11:56 am #209488
Unlike some people ( eg. Mr Fox ) who try to link the footballers taking the knee to some sort of Marxist anti democracy movement, I prefer to believe what the footballers tell us that it’s about supporting the anti racist movement in sport. Maybe I shouldn’t label Mr Fox in the way I have but his waffle about being a patriot is exposed as such when he makes such ridiculous claims about wanting the English team to lose because they support a just cause. He presents no evidence of his claims yet verbally attacks the players based on just that, he breaks Covid rules ( and openly boasts of such ) and again quotes being patriotic, shades of Hancock there, so I get a little miffed when he prattles on so in such a two faced fashion. Apologies for offending all racists on here I should know my place, thanks JI. BTW what’s your position on why so many International footballers are taking the knee in this current football tournament?July 1, 2021 at 1:02 pm #209497
Whilst your correct that the Belgians and Portuguese players took the knee, the Belgians went down as a man in solidarity whilst the Portuguese went down in instalments. Even the commentator said finally all the Portuguese players kneel !! Just as the Belgians we’re getting back up.July 1, 2021 at 1:04 pm #209498billpuntonsghostParticipantOffline

“BPG keeps denying that there is no racial abuse”
What I said was in the last 30 years supporting the Iron home and away I have never heard any racial abuse . Some on hear claim they have (which i don’t deny is true),but racial abuse in this country has been virtually eliminated at football grounds up and down the land ,without this neo- Marxist motivated “taking to the knee.”July 1, 2021 at 1:11 pm #209499

…and your point is….?July 1, 2021 at 1:14 pm #209500
My point is that there was no burning desire amongst the Portuguese, in fact most only knelt after seeing other team mates do so one by one. As I say even the commentator thought it worthy of comment at the time.July 1, 2021 at 1:19 pm #209501
“but racial abuse in this country has been virtually eliminated at football grounds up and down the land ,without this neo- Marxist motivated “taking to the knee.”
And your evidence for this is? And you conveniently ignore the fact that footballers representing their country continue to receive disgusting racist abuse on the internet? Why?July 1, 2021 at 1:20 pm #209502

…and your evidence of it being virtually eliminated is?
..and your evidence that footballer taking the knee is due to neo – Marxist motivation is?
I believe you are offering both opinions with no evidence to support either, the footballers have stated many times in the media over many months both individually and through their professional association why they take the knee.
Their reason for doing so does not fit your agenda here bill.

Ok but it doesn’t prove anything other than they chose to take the knee, it’s their right and their choice to do either and there is no evidence that being late going down for the knee was because they were coerced into doing so, which it seems to be what your suggesting, apologies if I misrepresent your post of course.July 1, 2021 at 1:25 pm #209504
What sort of Christian are you? I don’t see much care and respect for your fellow man and footballers who are also Christians.
Why do you give more credence to the views of self promoting racist idiots like Fox and ignore a simple request or gesture fronm players like Sterling who is asking people to stop directing vile abuse at him? Not too much to ask is it?
FFS – how difficult is that to understand?July 1, 2021 at 1:27 pm #209505
Yes everybody has a choice and I respect that
