In Putin's Russia, World Cup plays you.

Anti English sentiment doesn't bother me remotely. Unlike your near obsession with your adopted country and hatred of the one you abandoned I have a fairly objective approach to the good and the bad about this country SD.
It does bother you obviously. What good is there anymore in England? Go on call it.

Here is one about this country. It is not obsession just an appreciation what has been achieved here. Remember we have slightly just over a quarter of the British population. Dare to watch it Rummy?

It really doesn't bother me. You hate England so deeply and irrationally it seems to me that you can't imagine someone being able to be a little objective about their own country.

I'm not getting into a pissing match about which is the better country - that is your game. I like England - it is a great country to live in. There are other countries I would be happy to live in too of course. France, Australia and New Zealand come to mind - even parts of the USA.

Not Holland though. It is OK but it is too crowded and flat and full of people who seem to think speaking bluntly and without considering the feelings of other people is a virtue.

Of course you wont as England is only embarrassing in comparison.
You have never lived here so making suppositions from a short visit. I can assure you that France would never suit you. You prefer the smarmy Anglo-Saxon back stabbing so stick to the Anglo-Saxon countries. Europe is not for you.

The whole world is rooting for Croatia, except the French.

Croatia is looking good. This is going to be interesting. If France loses, bookies are going to go bust everywhere.

party, for that? you know how unsufferable those car horns are? or how difficult it made coming back home from a friend's? that's not a party, not for people who have better things to do, like try to sleep because you know, the next morning you have to rise early... plus, this Gulliver does not party with complete yahoos. :sadcheer:
