Hahah saudia, Like chavs took the burberry, LIKE being the opperative word here.

Whats so patriotic about flying a flag to advertise you support football ? As i said, its all to do with football nothing to do with being patriotic as these flags only appear (unless they been up since the last world cup) when the football is on so dont pretend.

Im sure the same so called patriots will all of a sudden be Irish on St Patricks day lol

Fly your flag, wear your burberry, drink your guinness. Baaaah Baaaah

4L3X,it's got everything to do with patriotism AND football. In case you havn't noticed, there's a World Cup on, you either love it, or hate it. My country (that's England in case you need reminding) are in it. I'm just lending them my support while it's on, no harm done.
I'm off down the pub for a Guinness.

Fly a flag its patriotism, just so happens that its coincides with the world cup... whatever!

"My country (that's England in case you need reminding)"

Oh I dont need reminding, it appears that the football fans, sorry I mean patriots do, thats why some of the George Cross flags have "England" written across them. PMSL

I agree with effervesant fred, Its graet to be patriotic we can not often show that we are proud to be English anymore for fear of upsetting some groups may I remind you all thjat the BNP etc extreme right wing groups use the union Jack to demonstrate their misplaced allegiance to the British( odd as it was the british forces in world war two who defeated their other favourite flag the swastika). Britain has a lot to be proud of when it comes down to standing up against rascism eg: the ethnic cleansing by Saddam Hussain for one.
Dont loose sight of what this is about and thats teams of top athletes footballers playing at the highest level for the sheer delight of entertaing and inspiring generations to come in this wonderful TEAM sport! BRING ON THE KNOCKOUT STAGES

Absolutely right.

It was interesting to see so many children and adults having their faces and hair painted with the Cross of St George at the Party in the Park at Wellingborough yesterday.

Perhaps we should get the cricket fans interested in flying the flags?
