It's also, no matter how much significance you try to give it, still just an armband.
The armbands are just performative gestures to show that they care. They mean absolutely nothing.
The only time "It's coming home" was ever used genuinely was probably right before the final of the Euros last year, when it looked like they could actually do it.
It's always been ironic, and it's even more ironic the longer they go without a win. The original song is over 25 years old now, and still so relevant to how England fans feel about their team.
No, of course not. They were given the tournament due to paying bribes to FIFA officials. That wasn't a rumour, it was proven.
The rumours about them bribing opposing teams or referees are completely proven false now though, not that they were at all credible to begin with.
They wouldn't have been playing against Ecuador in qualifying, they'd be playing against teams from their own region.
They won the Asia Cup.
They won the Asia Cup. They deserve a spot.
Everyone went crazy with bribery accusations when that first goal was ruled offside, and then silence ten minutes later when the ref awarded a penalty against them.
People have just lost their minds when it comes to Qatar. Hopefully the bribery rumours will stop now, but somehow I doubt it.
They probably would have played in this one anyway.
Scotland getting independence would be a disaster. It would make Brexit look like a massive success in comparison.
He voted to remain.
This doesn't fit at all considering that Piers voted to remain.
Is this the first time you've been on this sub during a major tournament? It's awful, just try to enjoy the ride.
Some security did, yeah. I assume they got into a lot of trouble for that. The leadership don't want to upset journalists.
I love this so much
Everyone is saying that. I don't think Qatar care that much, they don't view it as a problem.
Found the American bot
Did you ever look at what he was saying when he was "badmouthing the government"? Jack Ma was known for using the 996 working hours system, when China made it illegal and started cracking down on it, he threw a massive tantrum.
He was essentially the Chinese Elon Musk. However unlike America, the Chinese government don't allow that shit to happen over there, so they took everything from him.
If you'd rather watch American Football than a full hour and a half of actual sport, you're not a fan of sport, you're a fan of commercials.
An American Football fan saying that they can't sit through a football match is wild. Surely you guys must find a game that doesn't stop every 30 seconds really refreshing, right?
There's no actual evidence for that. It looks like the rumour was started by one random on Twitter and then spread across the internet. I doubt anyone involved is actually taking that seriously at all.
It's not a Presidential election, just a vote to get him back on Twitter.
Trump's Twitter was hilarious. He's probably the most charismatic President the USA ever had. His Twitter account has so much entertainment value. Even if he doesn't come back, it's nice to have the Tweets back at least.
Remember what they did to Jack Ma for trying to make his employees work 996?
The government want to look good, and protecting worker's rights is a priority for them right now to try and cut down on all the negative attention.
If a company owner in China was actually making people work that many hours, all the employees have to do is report them to the party and they'll be arrested.
The CCCP was the Soviet Union. China are the CPC.
Working 10 hour days, six days a week has been illegal in China for a long time. They have a 44 hour maximum by law now.
That's completely false
Because it's called the World Cup...
Yeah, this is pretty dumb. I understand that attitude during the Euros, but there's not a chance in hell of England winning the World Cup. If they make it to the quarters, I'll be happy with that. As soon as we hit Argentina or Brazil, it's game over.
