Not really no, Mark...it's just that most of us can tell who's the better side, just from watching?

Yes any match that's being shown in the UK should be unbiased.There are plenty of people watching the wc games who want at least a semi professional outlook on the games rather than what is more like an England tv channel.Plenty of people who are watching it are not supporting England. I mean c'mon the attempt at defending Maguire by the commentator was just embarrassing.If Neymar had done that against England he'd have been slaughtered by the media here but because it was Maguire it barely got mentioned even though it was one of the most obvious dives of the tournament.That's just one example.

Hopefully the BBC live coverage on Saturday will be 100% biased in favour of England. Shearer, Ferdinand, Lineker going over the top; leaping about the studio when 'we' score....bring it on!!

Well it should be ross but the reality is it isnt along with a long long list of subjects outwith football.

Imagine the european union took control of all member states broadcasting under one central umbrella broadcasting corporation replacing the BBC , and started pumping pro german or french bias into english living rooms for regional or world cup footballing tournaments with some minor token lip service paid to the mere outlying regions like englandshire what a riot that would be.

No point moaning about it though cause we are where we are unfortunately for the minute.

come on ross what are you trying to suggest here , that an englishman cheated? You`ll be failing lord tebbits cricket test for colonial natives.😉

 

I did laugh at nicks  comment earlier on this thread

And I wish the bitter sods from the other home nations on social media would button it. You're jealous, we get it, get over it.

(Note: Not all, but many from the rest of the UK)

 

Love the reference to "home " nations.

 

For the purpose of international football , there are no home nations , only independent countries competing with each other in fierce rivalry.

 

England fans singing to panama" are you scotland in disguise" while we are all told to button it.🤔

 

Thats part of football , the fierce intense rivalry and banter which most football fans love . The idea that scottish irish and welsh have to just button it  and get behind england as some are suggesting is an absolute nonsense .

 

My english cousin in lancashire is a man utd fan , long time season ticket holder , and when liverpool got to the champions league final do you think he got the english flag and morris dancing bells out to support his fellow englishmen? like hell he did , he was doing cartwheels when ramos ended salah , and the spanish won , and his facebook feed is constantly full of man utd fans on facebook sites slagging liverpool and city off. Some of it is absolutely brutal stuff.

Thats football , and its extremely tribal . What next , will we have people suggesting sellic and sevco fans sit holding hands singing kum by yah at the next old firm match?

 

love this tweet from the swedes..

 

I will take a wild stab in the dark here and suggest there will be a few sweden fans in scotland ireland and wales for this game.😀 , never mind the rest of europe.

 

HEJA SVERIGE!!!!

Colombia have setup a petition to replay the game as they feel it was unfair. 250000 have signed. Honestly what are they on   well actually i can guess.   Come on England  its coming home.

The buggers cheated their way through four full games...so there's no reason for them to stop now?

The Beeb and ITV were all over Wales when they did so well in the Euros, and rightly so.

They'll be exactly the same when Scotland next qualify for a major tournament. :reindeer-emoji:

There was a huge amount of coverage during the Winter Olympics of the Scots  curling one out.

Fair enough. They're better at it than the English.

Kudos to Griezmann for not celebrating. France are getting better as the tournament goes on.

Weak referring again. Should have been a few red cards shown their. Anyway Uruguay looking well beaten not helped by a goal keeping howling mistake.

Easy win for France hardly had to get out of 1st gear. Even Jaws didn't have a nibble surprisingly during the game. Plenty of other dirty tactics and the ref was again weak and not fit to ref a game in the local park.

Will be firmly behind the Belgians tonight. This Brazil side are very beatable and hugely overrated because of previous achievements by their country.

Coutinho couldn't even get in the side that was embarrassed at the last world cup. Would love to see de Bruyne, Hazard et al charging through them at will this evening.
