Man U get a quick mention as well

 

when we are slandered, we answer kindly. We have become the scum of the earth, the garbage of the world—right up to this moment.

so true

I do not dispute that locally we all consider "scum" to mean Man Utd, but pub quiz specialists may dispute the "fact".:)

Will let you know Friday and hopefully  1 of the group will have stopped  sulking, but don't think he will have stopped  drinking his m&s wine

One of my favourite quiz questions is:- Who was the first England player to be capped (full cap) for England, who wasn't born when England won the World Cup. Answers on a postcard please? And no cheating with wikithingy!!

You are so right Steve ..this was in a question in my footy club quiz night .. I was so shocked by this .. but it also left me wondering about the implications of making people confirm to the social norms of the day ,, like taking the knee.. we need to make sure we really are doing the right thing but we should accept some chalkenge or disagreements..remember the FA thought they right to accept the German request for a Nazi Salute as they were supporting the governments attempt to avoid war with the Nazis .. seems odd or even wrongs now but at the time seemed fine to all but Stan Cullis .. look backs always give different views or perspectives from the decisions of the day.

Take down the statues of the players, but don't destroy anything that the Nazi's made I believe is the official chrisbo61 line.

No I wouldn’t, they were doing as they were told by the FA who were with the government to try and appease the Nazis to prevent a Second World War at all costs 

in hindsight it looks awful but things often do as you loose context .. but if anything a statue to stan Cullis at FA headquarters woukd be good 

just think we need to be careful at judging the past from some sort of moral position today.. remember as far is ISIS is concerned they are the moral ones not us
