    TIL: People on MMO-C are actually better referees than those appointed by UEFA. Amazing actually, when did you all get your badges?

    "Btw I know better than any England fan and also those professionals that are appointed to do their jobs. Why does no one listen to meeeeeeeeeee?"

    I'd rather it wasn't part of the game, but players are told if there's contact to go down. That's not an English thing, it's not even a European thing.

    But there's certainly an awful lot of people crying at England for it but not seeming to be as furious with every other incident of it.

    But to call it cheating is a push, it's still a foul, even if it's tame. Again, I'd rather not see it, but an attacking player doesn't owe his opponent any favours.

    Because they won't be ashamed, and I'm pretty sure they're also not drunk.

    This isn't football fans, this is an underlying bunch of racists, the same people that claimed they were boycotting because the team took a knee before every game.

    Soft penalty yes, dive, no. A dive is when there's zero contact and you go down simulating.
    Like the ones Sterling did against Germany couple times? That kind of dive? :P

    Even if you are drunk af, you don't post monkeys in a player's social media without having it in you. You don't become racist just because you are drunk, they just are.

    The Germany that were "poor" according to everyone here, so they could claim that England haven't really beaten anyone?

    How should they have won then?

    I was angry when Immobile went down against Belgium, only to get up instantly when they scored. It's the part of football I despise. Maybe I should stop watching football because I refuse that it should be accepted.

    TBH, we all should stop watching major leagues, CL, etc until many actions are taken...

    Both goals in that game came from open play, and your guy missed a sitter. Not sure Sterling going over easy made any difference there.

    Funny how no one else seems to have brought that up till now, when they talk about how they wanted Italy to win because England were "cheats"

    It's like when people say it's because of the fans, as if the Ultras aren't a thing.

    Also did you really question the likes of Sancho not being a big star in the future, then mention someone else's understanding of football?
    Are we talking about the same Sancho? Plays at Dortmund? Doesn't win shit in our supposedly "farmer league"? Either the English league is even worse than I think it actually is, or you're absolutely deluded.

    The fact the ref didn't straight up book him made me wonder if they know the rules on simulation.

    Well, if these aren't football fans, I'm not talking about them. The premise is us discussing English football fans, not random racist fucks picking up an opportune moment to do what they always do. That's even less of a surprise than football fans being crass. :P

    Pretty sure he won the Supercup and the Pokal.

    Slapped in 17 goals in the Bundesliga two seasons ago, and eight last season on a "bad season" Being hailed around Europe as one of the next big stars of football, hence why Dortmund slapped such a massive price tag on him.

    But they're also often the people that are cited as "English fans" when people say why they hate England so much.

    You can't have it both ways.

    Heck, after seeing replays I was even annoyed at how Doku went down in the Italy game to give Belgium a penalty. I initially thought he was pushed but after re-watching it, it was pretty much a clear dive. I just really really despise it, and when VAR was brought in I was soooo hopeful it would be the start at ruling it out, gosh was I disappointed.

    And yeah, I don't think people realise how big a thing football is in some other countries. Dare I say that it's practically a religion.

    I don't think I've said they were poor. I mean they were, but England's also not the most stellar teams in the history of NT tournaments. Up until that 1:0 we were pretty equal I felt. But there you go, England did score the 1:0 and everything snowballed from there. And they deserved to win. Same as Italy did today. Not because of the penalty shoot, but because they forced England into it.

    Agreed. Puzzles me that these things aren't an instant yellow for unsportsmanlike conduct. I'd give every player a yellow if he doesn't have torn ligaments, head injury or an actual broken bone that I can see. Actually, I'd force sub every player that requires medical attention. It's just not safe to let players play on with a potential hidden injury.

    But yet I stay a optimist, I know football is only a game, but it is a beautiful game!

    Congratulations to Italy again, this was fun and almost reached a hundred pages (may still happen).

    See you at the WC or maybe at the 2021/2022 thread for some CL matches.

    Wow, the Supercup. I'm impressed. And the DFB Pokal. That thing we only care about to turn the actual league title into a double or triple for bragging rights? Wow, I am impressed. I think Holstein Kiel had more to do with Dortmund winning that cup than Sancho. Wow, can't believe you called me out on a fucking Dortmund player... haha, that's funny.

    I don't know who's who in England. Would you like to write me a guide with 45 million names detailing who's racist and who's a racist football fan? Thanks. You said they're not football fans, not I. I don't have anything any way, I don't give a shit. They're your problem, not mine.
