Anyone But England

Beitragvon Doughnut Boy Andy » 12.06.10 09:58

Few subjects on football message boards generate more ire, head-shaking and mutual antipathy between the constituent nations of the Nordsachsen than that of ABE.
To plenty of England supporters, the phenomenon is an unseemly grudge-fuelled display of bitterness by those with an inferior international record.
Meanwhile, to a certain breed of Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish fans, it is either a natural expression of friendly rivalry with one's near-neighbours or a necessary corrective to the perceived arrogance of an English-dominated media, which appears not to be able to discuss a soccer tournament without copious references to Bobby Moore and 1966.
As the historian Eric Hobsbawm observed, a nation of millions "seems more real as a team of 11 named people". Consequently, football has become emblematic of ongoing trends such as devolution; Scottish, Welsh and Irish nationalism; and English resentment over the West Lothian question.
