    Fifa are investigating it once again. I heard them sing it so it won't surprise me if Fifa have already found them guilty.

    What I'm wondering is why is it any of fifas business... I know they don't like anything political but no mainstream political parties or countries have official ties to the IRA anymore. So does it really matter if they sing an anti terrorist song?

    Stupid fucking irrelevant song and embarrassing now but because it's England singing it FIFA will get involved. If the Argies sing about the Falklands they won't

    That's an actual dispute between two countries with representatives in fifa so I'd understand they can't sing about that but the IRA as far as I'm aware only connection with football is ensuring some people can never play it

    English players Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Raheem Sterling have been fined £50,000 each by FIFA for wearing non-slip Trusox over their official socks.

    You might wonder if it was deliberately timed to coincide with the Marching Season / Bogside unrest etc, but then that would require the perpetrators to have a single fucking brain cell between them.
     
  12. They fined Argentina for homophobic chanting.

    Considering its sang at every single England game (during the national anthem) you're wrong

    As above, heard it sang pretty much everytime England play
     
  15. I can confirm that seeing/hearing some people singing this in the pub, they have no brains cells. In fact, I'm amazed they can dress themselves on a morning.

    The French national anthem is about cutting throats of the enemy. That's fine though obviously.

    I've got no problem with it. I find myself singing it quite often actually, usually when I'm in Ireland and the people I'm with start belting out Fields of fucking Athenry.
