I think that it’s incredibly sad that these few morons are spoiling things for the majority but I also believe that these aren’t incidents isolated to football. Unfortunately this kind of thing happens every weekend across British towns and it is being highlighted more because of the World Cup which just gives these clueless yobs an excuse.
They sicken me because this should be something for the nation to enjoy. Many of the young men on the England Team have worked extremely hard to perfect their talent. They are not kids that have had everything handed to them on a plate and I think it’s great for some children to see them and think that they could be the next big thing. Anyone can be a footballer, no matter what your race, religion or background and surely in a world where childhood obesity is a massive problem then we should be highlighting this rather than focusing on these idiots that would do this whatever the occasion!
The perpetrators should be dealt with harshly.
I’m not sure what it’s like in other parts of the Country but here in Derbyshire it’s refreshing to see a resurgence in National pride, something that we seem to have lost in recent years.
