They Started It

It's probably a shocking thing for an English football fan to say, but I don't really get the depth of animosity between us and Scottish fans.

I understand that the rivalry goes back a long way and has a complex history.

So who really is the best?

It all seems very petty.

It's the same in other arenas.

For example, I've lost count of the number of English people I have heard saying they won't support Andy Murray because he is Scottish.

How very childish.

Mind you, they are being a bit pathetic about this.

In fact, come to think of it, I'm sure they probably started the war in the first place.

I too have heard a few people make the same comments about Murray; personally I'm not to fussed either way, I'm just happy to see some good tennis being played (and sunshine)!

The Them and Us opinions between the English & Scots, is also a opinion between British teams in Europe - i mean, personally, being a Leicester City fan, cannot find it in me to support any other British club when it comes to European games - my opinion is, why should i? after all i don't support them anyother time!

It amazes me how Henman does it for Englang, yet Murray does it for Britain.

As Murray Walker said at the end of an F1 season a good few years ago "The great British driver Eddie Irvine now returns to being the great Irish driver Eddie Irvine."

It's amazing how the english never do anything for Britain.
