FFS its twitter! Every cunt with no intelligence is on there. Can we just leave off with the trawling of social media for this shit? We know these cunts exist - leave em. 

You were fine with the posting of nonsense transfer rumours from Twitter, but this you don't want.

Been some great games between England, the former West Germany and Germany. Sadly, all the war stuff as I recollect didnt appear in newspapers until that rag whose name is unspeakable started spouting the shite.

Yep. 96 was a great game - but I can't stand all that shit. Tedious as fuck - I love Germany as a country, and really like Germans. Every country has its Nationalists. Every racist supports their national team

Yes I do apologise. These are exactly the same.

1970 in Mexico was a great game. Early 70's, 72 or 73, I think, at Wembley when Netzer ran the show in a Euro Championship 2 legged game. Think he scored the winner as well!

I wonder if Sancho and Bellingham will play, given that they absolutely beast German players week-in, week-out.

They don’t beast the Bayern players though.

France v Belgium/Italy and Germany v Holland semis. 

 

Decent. 

 

Looking forward to the Anne Frank Derby.  

Since 1974 always the tastiest fixture on an International calendar.

German rivalry is apparently with the Dutch in football, they don't care too much about England.

I don't think the Dutch were much of an issue to them, football-wise, prior to 1974 either really.

 

It's when the Germans realised they'd just won the World Cup beating a far superior team to them that I think an instant intensity kicked off.

It's what I heard or read. There is also a local rivalry with Austria. They don't care about England, or at least, no more than about France or Italy. It's mostly a one-sided obsession. I think England may be Germany's Scotland in football.

Yeah they don't actually give much of a shit about rivalry from what I can tell - it's that dispassionate sang-froid that probably makes them so successful.

 

They get more excited about bratwurst and rightly so.

 

Slavic teams don't win much, cos they're always angry and paranoid about something they've said or heard in a bar.

 

How's that for generalisations?

Imagine if England win and even worse on penalties.

Redemption for Southgate and all that bullshit.

I think England will beat Germany, then scrape through against Sweden or Ukraine.  Southgate, Sterling & Kane will all be knighted before the semi-final where England lose on penalties to Wales.

The papers are going to be absolutely awful over the next few days, aren't they? 

 

Classless world war references galore. 

Step forward Stan Boardman, fokker.

I was hoping Scotland would do well for Andy Robertson's sake. When the matches involving England and Scotland were over the other night, my wife suggested it was really because I felt an affinity with my Celtic (with a K, but either works) brethren. Don't be ridiculous, I told her, there would be no way I'd cheer for a Protestant country over a Catholic one. Obviously I was comfortable with the child abuse, she said. Top bantz, eh? And if you think that was a bit close to the knuckle, wait until you see her reaction to Germany doing well in just about anything. I woke up this morning to a WhatsApp from my brother telling me about the pairing. She's not up yet and even the thought of her finding out about it is filling me with dread. I'm genuinely hoping England win, because the domestic turmoil if Germany beat England again doesn't bear thinking about.
