    They'll be screaming and roaring supporting them in the premiership in a few months time.

    Am I the only one that finds this funny ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,381 ✭✭✭✭ Allyall


    Harmless jibes..

    Singing the National Anthem was a bit much, but still, all harmless fun, Unless they purposely went out of their way, to that hotel to do it.. In that case, very, very sad..

    But if they were cordoned off on that street as the bus/cars/fleet was/were coming, then i think, supporters of any country would've acted similarly, some may even have kept eggs just for such an occasion.

    Anyway, harmless fun, part and parcel of the whole Euros package..

    It would be funny if we were playing them and there was a funny chant in there somewhere. To purposely go out of their way to boo the England team is just sad and small time. Hence why people are embarrassed.

    Jesus serious lack of sense of humour on this thread, more moral outrage over Irish fans who travelled to Euro 2012 & who where staying in Krakow decided to entertain themselves by having some banter with English fans, as their team arrived at hotel.

    Me & friends found the video amusing....lighten up people! :D:D

    No moral outrage here, I just think its daft that people would go out of their way to boo and jeer the English team. If it had been the English booing the Irish team, then you'd hear the moral outrage and it would probably be from some of the lads singing in this video too. Again, it's sad and very small time. I think most seasoned football supporters will agree.

    If England had been in our group it may have been funnier. At least then the England supporters might give a shït.

    Pathetic. No moral outrage, I couldn't care less, but it doesn't make it any less pathetic :)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 6,943 ✭✭✭ abouttobebanned


    What's pathetic about it? It's called Football banter.

    I was especially happy to not hear any "Sinn Fein" "IRA" inserts in the Fields.

    Its football banther when one end of a stadium is chanting at the other. Travelling out of your way to shout insults at the very men your cheer about every other week though? Yeah sorry, to me thats pathetic :)

    Jesus, it's a bit of banter.

    What would luke skywalker think of it all.....


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 6,943 ✭✭✭ abouttobebanned


    There are videos on the internet of fans at the euros battering the shiit out of each other...and we have fans singing and chanting (lame chanting compared to what goes on at english grounds) at the English team and people are outraged. I guarantee there won't be one arrest of an Irish Fan over there.

    who said the english team and people were outraged ?you are making up your own stories,i doubt that the english even noticed ,just the polish citizens who watched their TV to see some irish fans behaving like that


  • Registered Users Posts: 340 ✭✭ lookitsme


    just a bit of fun IMO, as long as no individuals from the team were singled out. is anyone hoping for a similar english performance that they had in the world cup.

    Don't worry. The English fans shall have their revenge when they start rioting and attacking everyone.

    :D


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 28,372 Mod ✭✭✭✭ ShamoBuc


    Quite funny really - they gave them a nice welcome. If Irl play Eng - I would expect all Irish fans to give Eng a similar welcome.
    Wether they support a Prem lge team is completely irrelevant!

    If they traveled there for the express purpose of shouting those things at the English then for shame. Just imagine if the roles were reversed, if the English supporters did the exact same; made their way to that street, shouted and sang, "God Save the Queen", you could be guaranteed that everyone that thinks it's funny would be in uproar over it.

    But no, since it's us doing it to the English, it's fine. And, as someone else said, they'd be off supporting the very same players they jeered at as they're playing in the premiership.

    I genuinely think the people that went there should have both their passports and their rights to leave this country revoked. At least then, they wouldn't make the rest of our country look like idiots.
