    I'd say the same about your use of apostrophes.

    Or your use of ya in your previous post. Mocking peoples posts on minor grammar errors is dull.

    Maybe spend more time on chants which people might actually get eh

    Spark the match
    Light the fuse
    Watch him blow
    There's a red
    Rooney has to go

    Haha you both did. The USAF did not exist until the National Security Act of 1947 was signed. "Army Air Corps shot them down" rolls off the tongue nicely though.

    At best, a military stalemate. Potentially a British/Canadian victory on points due to the initial British/Canadian military goal of stopping American incursions into Canada.

    Many historical scholars have it as a draw, the next biggest group puts it down to a British/Canadian victory, with the smallest number of scholars chalking it up as an American victory.

    One thing they do agree on is that the Indian tribes where the real losers.

    But what do we expect? The US loves to re-write history...

    If we where actually connected to Dublin, maybe there would be an argument. Point 1.

    Point 2, it would not be such a bad thing to be a suburb of Dublin. I like Dublin. If there where to be a land connection, I know many people who would be quite happy.

    What about sticking to one you'll all be familiar with:

    DE-FENCE
    DE-FENCE
    DE-FENCE
    DE-FENCE
    DE-FENCE...


    Repeat till end.

    I mean, appropriate considering that will be what your boys will be doing all game. Defending to the very end against the unstoppable English hordes, alas, you wont be able to withstand.

    Slapped on the Quayside,
    Stu got slapped on the Quayside,
    SLAPPEEDDDD ON THE QUAYSIDEEE...
    Stu got slapped on the Quayside.

    Or a bit harsh?

    Maybe Carrick can throw a mean Geordie accent in Holden's direction to bring back some nice memories.

    Could do that. Enjoying winning the recent World Cup in that too. England is doing quite well.

    Not such a distraction.

    Try again.

    Nothing like raining on someone's parade!

    (Or, given the odds, and from an England point of view, shouldnt that be "reigning?")

    There we go! That is much better!

    *sigh* Look. The Germans had a handful of old river barges. Nothing that could get masses of troops over the Channel unless they had total maritime and air superiority. Those barges would sink in anything over very slight swell. Given that by the end of the Battle of Britain production of aircraft in Britain outpaced the Luftwaffe, and that their fighters did not have enough loiter time to protect their bombers on deep penetration runs, there was no chance that the Germans could achieve the superiority they needed to achieve dominance and launch an invasion. By not knocking Britain out of the fight at that time, the bes they could hope for would be a peace treaty. A treaty which would have seen Nazi Germany recognising the British Empire and the British recognising Nazi Germany's new European empire.

    I will send you a good text book.

    There's gotta be a song about blue on blue hasn't there? If your football team is anything like your army anyway! Get it down quickly what colour they'll be wearing.

    And that was actually Germany's goal anyhow. Goering had been advising Hitler for some time that the UK was practically impregnable as long as the Eastern Front remained a priority (and that was always the primary German war priority from the very beginning). Hitler didn't have his heart set on German flags flying over London, and few in the German high command ever really felt it would happen. He wanted the UK out of the war, preferably before the US got involved, so that his efforts could remain devoted where they were needed: in the East.

    And I can't believe I just went there. This WWII tangent is really getting tedious....

    That would be something for the England fans to sing. And something I hope they wouldnt. Whilst one can heavily criticize the US military for making some pretty amazing mistakes, its not really something I feel should be making it to the terraces. Especially given the overall context that US soldiers and British soldiers are fighting and losing their lives alongside each other, rather than in conflict...

    Then lets move it away from WWII. Not so sure its such a wise move on either side, given historically, we where both on the same side. Seems kind of odd that we should be using a conflict we both came out as victors of, as a point of contention between fans. (I am also not overly happy about the 10 German bombers thing, but not much I can do about that now!)

    Songs can be about anything. Revolutionary war could be used, though not 1812. That one basically finished as a draw.

    Could always sing songs about America's dominance of the world in fried food. After all, Sheffield United's most unique song is about "greasy chip butties..."

    Well the Brits invented fried food, the Yanks perfected it.
     
  22. FACT: England has never beaten the USA in the World Cup.

    Deal with it, limey trolls.
