This is my new favourite thread.
Changed my mind, Brits/English people suck
the brits and their organized ‘singing sections’ at football matches @ynot
On Thursday before the Bob Mould Band gig at the Electric Ballroom, there were a ton of people from Rennes who were in town for a game with Arsenal (some of them told us) who were doing the same thing on the street.
maybe it was just too hard to cross the NI border in the (checks notes) 5th century.
WALES GET OUT OF IRELAND
Also we learnt that he was Welsh in primary school ffs but it’s enjoyable when The Brits think they’ve stumbled upon a great revelation
I’m confused. Hasn’t it been established St. George wasn’t English?
Do you mean the Rennes fans were singing or the Arsenal fans were singing?
Or the Rennes fans were singing that they were a shed?
Nice of them to let the DiS football threads design a flag.
Well he was Turkish I think but…??
Well my point is that seems to be posted by a group of “You can’t have these British saints you filthy foreigners” group but another of the ‘British’ saints they seem obsessed by is also not ‘British’. Surely where a saint is from is entirely immaterial to which country picks them. Bunch of utter twats.
Mate you’re gonna be saying he never killed a dragon next
I mean sainthood does seem utterly weird to me. That Sapiens book reckons saints in Christianity are the way that the religion allowed for a polytheistic type of worship within a monotheistic tradition.
St Brigid is the best Irish saint anyway cos my ancestors liked following/serving her so much that they made it my surname
And she has her own weird cross made out of rushes that they force school kids to try and make. Infinitely better than shamrocks
Oh yeah it is cool
(Even if it also has a slightly worrying sense of one of those not-a-Swastika-but-we’re-trying fascist group symbols.)
The Rennes fans were singing. My French isn’t good enough to know what they were singing about. All I do know is that they were from Rennes and they were all jolly and friendly.
Daniel Hannan thinks the decline of Fianna Fáil must be down to the EU, because Ireland couldn’t possibly have any domestic politics of its own
