The thing that always strikes me about the ABE stuff on threads like this is how closely it reflects exactly the sort of England support it claims to oppose. It's based on fixed perceptions of attitudes (naturally all England fans assume England are entitled to win), borderline xenophobic (always ready with the implication the English are a bit German), disrespectful to other teams (you didn't thrash Albania!) and obviously humourless and relentlessly repetitive. And obsessed with England of course (you don't get it so much on the rugby threads where the teams are closer I don't think).
It's not the antithesis of a load of blokes chanting 'Eng-er-lund' for hours - it's more a reflection of it. And tbh those England fans aren't on here are they.
I'm not a football lover, and started this WC glazing over every time the fella mentioned something about it, but I've been totally sucked in this time. Never shouted and clapped and cheered so much in me life haha That was almost unbearable to watch
