Quite the escalation there. I’m oot.


I’ve just been at a food festival where mass chants of “IT’S COMING HOME” kept breaking out and the crowd went mad whenever the chefs doing demonstrations/musical acts mentioned the football, so it’s definitely that.


Would people be out at a food festival en mass in such a merry mood if the weather wasn’t so nice?
You know, people would more likely be isolated and confined to a stuffy smelly pub if it werent so nice.

The tickets sold out months ago so probably yes. I think people would still have been excitable about the result regardless of the weather.

Both the weather and the football are now doing my head in so…

I enjoy the weather but people wandering around wearing england flags shouting it’s coming home does my head in

I appreciate this might not be a popular sentiment

I’m not in England, but remembering what it was like here when Wales had their run in the Euros a couple of years ago, I suspect it’s the football, yes.

That said, the weather seems to be cheering up most people here, too (or maybe it’s just delirium from lack of sleep).

Actually going to watch Don’t Take Me Home again and wallow in (recent) nostalgia I think.

I think the moral is don’t bring a dictionary to a football fight.


"It’s coming home’ is this year’s “Oh Jeremy Corbyn”


What the shitting fuck is ‘summer not flaking out’?


tax on cornish pasties.


Bread and fucking circuses, eh?
