As expected, the flags are everywhere. On every house and in every shop window and every other car window etc. We bought one today in 'Poundland - Everything's a Pound' which interestingly only cost us 50p when we went to pay. My Dad and I found that rather amusing actually.
50p land then??
I have to speak on a serious note here.... This week in Scotland two people have been assaulted for wearing English shirts or sporting English flags on the vehicle they were driving. This has totally appalled me and the majority of Scots who, while not supporting England, would never in their wildest dreams wish any harm to any English fan.
This has really made me think about the discussion we had about anti-support for England etc., and I have to say that if I thought for one second that I contributed to this kind of disgusting incident, then I'd have to ask serious questions of myself and my motives.
To all England fans out there can I apologise profusely on behalf of all Scots who say 'Not in our name'.
