Quite the escalation there. I’m oot.


#9

Definitely the football one
I mean how did they get there so fast


#10

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.


#11

BUT

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.


#12

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


#13

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


#14

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


#15

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).


#16

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


#17

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


#18

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


#19

Not Noel Gallagher

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