I'm Scottish and proud of it.
But England is without doubt my 2nd favourite country.
I love it. I have English family, friends and I often take holidays there, but just don't ask me to support you in any sporting endeavour. I just can't do it. Sorry.
I've tried, honest I have, but I find it's impossible.
I know it's childish and small minded and there's no rational explanation for it, but there you go.
I'm a bitzer - mostly English - born in Sussex - but with bits of Irish, Welsh, tinner (though my gran always vigourously denied it) and a long way back, Viking (Norman French really but I think this sounds better).
Scottish - despite our sometimes less than perfect weather I like the strong identity we Scots have that perhaps England is missing these days.
Good lady wife is English so I can't 'dis' the Sassenachs too much! Holiday there frequently and I like England fine.
We want Berwick upon Tweed back , how can Berwickshire be Scottish and the county town be English?
Jonathan Pearce (Get the dogs luv !!)
John Motson ( get the gun hen)
Martin Tyler (Hoi Tyler if I want to hear an arse, I WILL FART !!) PS I save Martin Tylers life once .. I stopped kicking the effer.
Gary Lineaker(his face after the Croatia game was effin priceless) (theres only one Mladen Petric, only one Mladen Petric)
Mark Lawrenson (Hey Lawrenson, if I want you to squeek, I will SQUEEZE you !!!!!!!
I get pi55ed off with Wrighty sometimes but have to say the guy is great value for money. I have found myself going the long way home to catch him on TalkSPORT in the evenings.
Like Parmo a proud Yorkshireman...we often get forms etc to fill in at the Uni I work at.Wherever I see the nationality part that says are you British or other I always put English and it pi55es them off no end.
We only seem to be British when a Scotsman wins a medal at the Olympics and we all want to share in his glory.
My gran is a Geordie, I work for a company based in England but owned by Americans. I was told recently by someone in Sheffield 'you sweaty socks come over the border and bugger off back north with all our money' to which I informed him was spent in Tesco, Asda, Next, ect ect and it all came back down south so go take a **** to yourself.
If push came to shove we would all be standing shoulder to shoulder so we are British.
